Breast Enhancement Overview

breast enhancementWomen desiring to improve the volume, shape and size of their breasts can undergo breast enhancement. Women undergo this procedure if they feel they have little breasts, breasts that are unequal, breasts that have lost volume or breasts that have reduced in size after losing some weight. It is also done by women who have survived cancer and have had part of their breasts removed or have one breast. Women who have been burnt on their breasts can undergo this procedure to get their breasts reconstructed.

Getting larger breasts not only increases self esteem but also rectifies mother nature’s errors. This can be done both surgically and non-surgically. The person undergoing the breast enhancement selects the method they will be comfortable with. Results of both non-surgical and surgical methods of breast enlargement are instantaneous.

Surgical Breast Enhancement

When surgery is employed it is referred to as breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty. Silicone gel or saline implants are placed inside a woman’s breasts, and they are used for augmenting their size. These implants are placed below the chest muscle or behind the breast tissue. They make the breasts look shapelier and fuller.

An incision has to be made by a surgeon so these implants can be placed. The incision has to be as small as the implant is inserted when it is empty and then it is filled. These incisions are placed under the arm, inside the breast fold or around the nipple. There are many types of incisions, and a patient is required to select the type of incision they are comfortable with.

The infra-mammary fold incision is very common. Here, the implant is placed inside the breast fold. The scar is hidden because of the anatomy of the breast. If the patient is also having mastoplexy, the fold will be lifted and will therefore be exposed.

The periareolar incision is also known as nipple incision. This type of incision is recommended for patients undergoing an implant surgery followed by a breast lift. The incision is made around the nipple so that the implant can be placed. This method is advantageous because the skin of the areola, which is darkened, assists in concealing scars.

There is also the auxiliary incision. Here the implant is inserted under the armpit. This procedure makes placing implants hard and is not liked by both cosmetic surgeons or and patients. This method is very safe though.

Lastly,there is the trans umbilical surgery incision, which is not very common. It is done by patients who choose saline filler. When this breast enhancement procedure is employed, scars occur in the tummy where perhaps stretch marks already occur.

Breast enhancement surgery is done only by experienced and qualified surgeons. These implants help in boosting patient’s confidence.
