Four Things To Know About Breast Augmentation Surgery

by Chester Williams

If you want to improve the look and feel of your breasts, a breast augmentation procedure can give you great results. Many women choose this option as a permanent alternative to other breast enhancement methods that are only temporary or aren't as effective. Here are four things that you should know about breast augmentation surgery.

1. Fat Can Be Transferred

In addition to making your breasts fuller and more symmetrical, breast augmentation surgery can improve your appearance by reducing fat in another part of your body. During a fat transfer augmentation procedure, excess fat can be taken from the abdomen or thighs through liposuction and transferred to your breasts to increase their volume. If you have love handles, the surgeon may even be able to take the fat from your side areas to complete a fat transfer breast augmentation.

2. Different Implant Choices are Available

If you decide to have implants put in as part of your breast augmentation procedure instead of having a fat transfer, you can choose from different options. Silicone and saline are among the most popular implant options because of their ability to make the breasts look fuller naturally. You can also choose from different cup sizes so that you can pick something that will be the most flattering and proportionate to your body type. Each implant will be placed behind the breast tissue or chest muscle so that they hold in place properly.

3. Incisions Can Be Made at Different Sites

The incisions for your breast augmentation implants can be made in different areas. Your surgeon will determine where your incisions will be made based on the specific results that you wish to achieve along with your current health status. The creases underneath the breasts, which are known as the inframammary folds, are often ideal incisional sites. Incisions can also be made around the areolas (nipple areas). Transaxillary incisions may be ideal if you want the incisions to be made under your arms instead of on or around your breasts.

4. Quick Surgery and Recovery Times

Breast augmentation offers one of the fastest ways to enhance your breasts, and the time that it takes to complete the surgery and for your body to heal can be minimal. Most breast augmentation procedures can be completed in one to two hours, and you'll likely receive general anesthesia so that you can sleep throughout your surgery. Overnight hospital stays generally aren't required. You may feel mostly recovered after a week of having your surgery, but you'll likely need four to six weeks to recover fully.

Getting the fuller breasts that you want can be as easy as undergoing a breast augmentation procedure. A surgeon who offers breast augmentation surgery services can meet with you for a consultation and help you decide if this procedure is right for you.


About Me

Updating Your Look

A few months ago, I realized that I wanted to look a little bit younger. I got a job as a marketing representative, so I found myself traveling from place to place to sell our company's products and services. However, my older look seemed to be holding me back from communicating effectively with the younger crowd. To correct this problem, I started investigating plastic surgery, and I was really impressed with how many procedures were out there that could improve my appearance. I was able to completely overhaul my look by going through and undergoing a few procedures, and now I feel great. This blog is all about updating your look with plastic surgery.
