There are certain unwritten standards that have been set by society about how a woman should look. These standards are splashed in magazines and on television where celebrities and models look stunning in trim figures and sizable breasts. This leaves you feeling out of place if you are in the category of women that naturally have a flat chest. You may have also gone through childbearing and your breasts were left shapeless and sagging.
As you get older, you may have noticed that the volume of your breasts has diminished and they no longer have the youthful shape they had before. A breast augmentation can help to restore the volume of your breasts and give them a youthful shape once more.
How Breast Augmentation Can Help
A breast augmentation is a surgery in which breast implants are inserted into your breasts. There are various ways in breast augmentation can help you to have a normal life and avoid the embarrassment of having breasts that do not seem normal. The condition where the breasts fail to develop is known as micromastia, where only the nipples are present on the chest.
You could also have breasts which are different from each other in their shape or their size. Having one breast which is a C-cup yet the other one is a D-cup can be quite stressful. The breasts could even have a tubular shape which makes them look strange. You may even simply want to increase the size of your breasts to enhance your figure. A breast augmentation helps to give you breasts that are symmetrical and that have the right shape and size to match your body type.
Types Of Implants
There are different types of implants which can be used in a breast augmentation. The implants have a silicone shell and can either be filled with a saline solution or silicone gel. The saline implants can be pre-filled before the surgery or they can be filled during the surgery to give a perfect fit. Saline implants collapse when they rupture and the solution is absorbed into the body. They also tend to rupture faster than the silicone implants and do not have the natural feel of breasts.
Silicone implants are filled with a firm or soft silicone gel and do not collapse when they rupture. They have the feel of natural breast tissue and they can either be round shaped or tear drop shaped. Implants come in different sizes and projections and your surgeon will guide you on deciding on the implants that will be most suitable for you.
Selecting a surgeon
The first step towards having a successful breast augmentation surgery is to choose a surgeon who is board certified. A certified surgeon is one that has gone through five years of surgical training and additional training in cosmetic surgery. You will be safer with a surgeon who has many years of experience in performing the procedure. An experienced surgeon will be able to handle complications properly so that your life and health are not put at risk.
You can go through the procedure as an outpatient whereby you will be allowed to go home the same day. You may also be required to have an overnight stay so that the doctor can monitor you.
