Everything You Need to Know About Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures in the US, where over 290,467 women went under the knife in 2016 to get a perkier and younger looking bosom. That number increased from 279,143 procedures in 2015 and 212,500 in 2000.

Of course, every woman desires a breast augmentation for different reasons, but primarily it comes down to self-esteem – and there’s nothing wrong with wanting something different than what you were given. If you feel like your breasts are naturally small, have started to sag or are disproportional, then you might want to consider getting a breast augmentation. Women who have lost their breasts to an illness or extreme weight loss also often opt for this cosmetic procedure.

Reasons To Have a Breast Augmentation Include:

  • To improve symmetry
  • To enhance fullness
  • To restore lost shape and/or volume
  • To improve body image and self-esteem
  • To make your clothes fit and look better
  • To restore lost size that occurs from breastfeeding or weight loss
  • To create a natural-looking and attractive pair of breasts

Also known as augmentation mammaplasty, breast augmentation involves the use of implants to bring back breast volume that is absent or was lost in women as a result of aging or childbirth. Dissatisfaction with the breast size gives two options: breast enlargement or enhancement. For those who are considering an augmentation procedure, many women prefer an increase in fullness and/or projection of their breasts. Breast implants can also be used for reconstruction after an injury or mastectomy.

Breast Augmentation can be performed through a variety of techniques, and the surgical process will be discussed with you during a consultation. Primarily based on your goals and anatomy, your board certified plastic surgeon will walk you through the surgery, and you’ll together create a plan that is unique to your goals and anatomy.

Breast implants can be primarily categorized into two types: silicone and saline. Both types are approved by the FDA and have been used for many years. Plus, they both comprise of a silicone shell, however, saline implants are first inserted, and then filled with water, while silicone implants come pre-filled and sealed with a cohesive silicone gel.
