Are you dissatisfied with the look of your breasts? Do you wish they were larger, fuller, or more symmetrical? Breast augmentations are one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures. Millions of women have enhanced their bodies with silicone and saline implants that look and feel natural.
THE BREAST AUGMENTATION PROCEDURE
Breast augmentations, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to enhance the shape and size of a woman’s breast or to correct an imbalance in a woman’s breast size.
The breast augmentation procedure can be performed within 1-2 hours, with two possible methods of insertions and positioning of the implant. The periareolar method involves inserting the implant through an incision made around the nipple area. With the inframammary method, the breast tissue and skin are lifted through an incision where the chest wall and lower part of the breast meet. An implant is then inserted either above or below the chest muscle.
The ideal candidate for a breast augmentation is a non-smoking, adult in good physical health. The individual undergoing this procedure should have realistic expectations for the procedure and should also maintain a stable weight.
