Breast augmentation surgery increases the size of the breasts by using silicone implants, saline implants, or, in some cases, fat transfer. Breast augmentation, one of the most popular and frequently performed aesthetic surgery procedures, has a long and successful track record of satisfying women who want to improve, regain, or restore the balance of their figures.
When Should Breast Augmentation Be Thought About?
If you want a more proportionate or appealing figure,
If you want to make your clothes fit better,
If you believe that such a procedure will boost your confidence or self-esteem, go ahead and do it.
When the size and shape of your breasts have changed due to pregnancy, weight loss, or ageing.
If one of your breasts is smaller than the other, you should rebalance them.
Enhancement is a long-term solution to achieving a desirable body shape.
You can enhance your appearance by wearing appropriate clothing and swimwear.
You can make yourself look younger.
You can develop a more balanced sense of self.
Implants are not permanent and may need to be replaced at some point.
The risks associated with surgery are well-known.
For a variety of reasons, including pain, asymmetry, lifestyle changes, or other symptoms, some patients wish to have their implants removed in the future.
These are the primary benefits and drawbacks to consider when contemplating breast augmentation in Mumbai. Please consult your aesthetic plastic surgeon if you want to focus solely on what makes you unique.
Are you a good candidate for breast augmentation?
Some of the most common reasons for considering breast augmentation are as follows:
You believe your breasts are too small in comparison to the rest of your body.
When you wear a swimsuit, form-fitting top, or low-cut top, you feel self-conscious.
Your hip-fitting clothes are too big around the bust.
Your breasts have no effect on the fullness of your brassiere.
As a result of childbirth, your breasts have shrunk in size or become less firm.
As a result of your weight loss, your breasts have shrunk in size.
Your breasts are significantly smaller in one direction than the other.
Your breasts are sagging and may benefit from augmentation as well as a breast lift.
If you are in good health, have a positive attitude, and have realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.
The Procedural Steps are Described in Detail.
What is the breast augmentation procedure?
Breast augmentation with implants entails creating a pocket in the chest/breast area, inserting an implant into the pocket, and closing the incision.
Another option for breast augmentation in Mumbai is autologous fat transfer. This is a procedure in which your surgeon uses liposuction to extract some of your own fat from a fat-producing body part (such as your abdomen, thighs, or flanks), processes it, and then injects it into your breasts.
What will the location of my implants be?
A variety of factors, including your anatomy and your surgeon's recommendations, influence how your breast implant is inserted and positioned. The implant is placed in one of two pockets: beneath the pectoral muscle (between the breast tissue and the chest wall) or beneath the pectoral muscle.
Subcutaneously and on the pectoral muscle's surface.
Breast implants can be placed above or below the pectoral muscle.
Because the implant is placed beneath the pectoral muscle, it may interfere with mammograms and breastfeeding less. The implant may move when you flex your chest muscles. Your plastic surgeon will go over this with you.
What are my other options?
There has never been a wider range of breast augmentation options available. The following options are available based on your medical history, body shape, and aesthetic goals.
Patients undergoing breast augmentation can choose between saline and silicone implants. The type of implant chosen is typically a matter of personal preference and the surgeon's opinion.
Saline-filled breast implants are filled with sterile salt water. Saline breast implants can be prefilled to a specific size before surgery or filled during surgery to accommodate minor implant size changes.
Structured saline breast implants are filled with sterile salt water but have an internal structure that mimics the feel of soft, elastic silicone gel. Because of this structure, they retain their shape better than traditional saline implants. The FDA and Health Canada approved these implants in 2014, and they have been available since 2015.
Silicone gel breast implants are filled with a soft, elastic gel and come in a variety of shapes and firmness levels. All silicone gel breast implants are pre-filled, and larger implants may necessitate a longer incision.
Glue that sticks together Silicone gel-filled breast implants, also known as "gummy bear" or "form stable" implants, are filled with a cohesive gel made of crosslinked silicone molecules, giving them slightly more thickness and firmness than traditional silicone gel implants. This allows them to keep their shape more effectively. Although the FDA approved these silicone implants for use in the United States in 2012, they have been available in much of the rest of the world since 1992.
Transfer of autologous fat
Liposuction is used to remove fat from areas of your body with a high concentration of fat cells, such as your thighs, abdomen, or hips. Fat cells are injected into your breast after a preparatory procedure. The amount of fat available for augmentation in many patients is less than the volume achievable with an implant. Not all fat transferred survives the grafting process, and the surgery may need to be repeated in some cases to achieve a larger volume of augmentation.
If your breasts are sagging or drooping, your plastic surgeon may advise you to combine any of these breast augmentation procedures with a breast lift.
Your surgeon will consider your anatomy, health profile, and personal preferences to determine:
The most suitable surgical procedure for you.
Your ideal bust measurement.
The type of implant and incision location that are best for you.
The size and type of breast augmentation recommended for you are influenced by the following factors:
Your medical history.
Your breast enhancement goals.
Your current body composition and mass.
Already existing breast tissue.
Your preferences for the size and location of the incision.
Your aesthetic plastic surgeon and staff are dedicated to assisting you in achieving the best results possible and making your surgical experience as simple, safe, and comfortable as possible.
What will my breast augmentation incisions and scars look like?
A cut can be made in one of four different places:
Inframammary: Just beneath the breast, just below the crease.
Transaxillary: Located near the armpit, where the arm meets the chest.
Circumferentially around the lower edge of the areola (the dark area surrounding the nipple).
Transumbilical: perpendicular to the navel.
Incisions can be made under the breast, in the crease, around the areola, in the armpit, or in the belly button (saline only).
Breast augmentation can help you regain confidence by restoring and enhancing the volume of your breasts.
Is breast augmentation a risk-free surgery?
Women who have breast implants must remember that they are not intended to last a lifetime and may need to be replaced. Following breast implant surgery, you should see a board-certified plastic surgeon on a regular basis to ensure that your implants are functioning properly.
Silicone gel-filled breast implants have been scrutinised for years, but the FDA has approved them for use in cosmetic breast enhancement surgery after extensive and meticulous research and data collection, concluding that there is no link between silicone gel implants and connective tissue disease, breast cancer, or reproductive problems. Furthermore, the FDA has approved three companies to develop and market breast implants and has mandated the collection of data on their long-term safety and efficacy.
Breast augmentation surgical techniques, as well as all breast implants, are constantly being refined in order to improve the procedure's safety and reliability. Solicit the information you need from your plastic surgeon in order to make an informed decision.
Selecting a Surgeon
Select a surgeon in whom you have complete trust.
It is critical that you select your surgeon based on the following factors: education, training, and certification.
Experience with breast augmentation surgery.
Your level of trust in him or her.
After locating a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area who has performed breast augmentation, you will need to schedule a consultation. The initial visit is usually charged because of the in-depth nature of the consultation. In some cases, introductory consultations for out-of-town patients can be conducted virtually using telemedicine technologies, but an in-person exam is required prior to surgery.
