Everything You Need to Know About Breast Augmentation

Women seek breast augmentation surgery for various reasons. With implants available both saline and silicone shells, their options for enhancement are many and varied.

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, offering various benefits such as correcting asymmetry, increasing volume and creating balance with other areas of the body.

Procedure

If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your breasts, breast augmentation may provide you with a more feminine silhouette. Breast augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgeries and boasts one of the highest patient satisfaction rates among plastic surgery procedures.

Your Gainesville plastic surgeon will begin by creating an incision in the breast tissue to form a pocket either behind or in front of the outermost muscle of the chest (pectoral muscle). Next, they insert either saline- or silicone gel-filled implants – empty saline ones may require being filled up later with sterile salt water while silicone ones come pre-filled.

Some women opt for the trans-axillary approach, which involves incising underside of breast in natural folds (inframammary fold). This procedure reduces visible scarring when worn with sleeveless clothing or bathing suits; they may even combine breast augmentation with liposuction for an even more customized result.

Recovery

Breast augmentation, more commonly referred to as the “boob job,” involves using either implants or your own body fat to enlarge the size of your breasts. Breast augmentation can help achieve more rounded or fuller breast shapes, restore lost volume after weight loss or pregnancy, or address natural inequities that exist between sizes.

Recovery after breast augmentation may take several weeks, during which it’s essential that you rest up and adhere to any post-op instructions from your plastic surgeon. Furthermore, it would be prudent to refrain from strenuous exercise until receiving clearance from them.

Plan ahead when it comes to transportation; pain medications could make driving dangerous. Notify your plastic surgeon immediately if any complications arise, such as fever, bleeding or changes in breast texture or appearance.

Results

Your final results depend on the type of breast implant, its size and placement as well as your existing tissue. A surgeon can assist in choosing a material and projection that are tailored specifically to you, for the most natural-looking outcome possible.

After recovering, most patients can return to work within one to two weeks post surgery. However, if your job requires physical exertion such as lifting, we suggest taking additional time off in order to allow yourself time to heal properly.

If you’re ready to enhance the appearance and confidence of your breasts, breast augmentation could be just what’s needed to do just that. Breast augmentation can be life-altering experience that leaves you with gorgeous curves and increased self-esteem – but before proceeding it’s crucial that you understand all steps involved and set realistic expectations about results so as to achieve optimal results that last you years down the line.
