What is Breast Implant Surgery?
Breast Implant Surgery, or Boob Job or Breast Augmentation Surgery, is performed to give women fuller and more rounded breasts. It is popular among women who have lost breast volume because of weight loss or after childbirth and breast feeding. It is also performed for breast cancer patients who have undergone mastectomy surgery, to reconstruct their breasts.
How is Breast Implant Surgery done?
Breast Implant Surgery is performed either by a fat transfer procedure to increase the volume of breasts or by making incisions and inserting silicone gel or saline filled implants to increase the size of breasts. Depending on the patient's requirements they can be inserted above or underneath the muscle tissue of the breast and be inserted through incisions made underneath the breast or under the armpit. The surgeon should explain the benefits of each type of procedure.
What are the best Breast Implants?
Silicone breast implants come filled with silicone gel while saline breast implants come as silicone shells that are later filled with sterile salt water. Silicone implants don’t wrinkle or ripple. These are normally used for breast reconstruction surgery for breast cancer patients. Since silicone implants are filled they do not allow changing size according to body proportions. The size of saline implants can be adjusted by the surgeon. The best implant will depend on the needs of each individual patient.
What is the recovery time after Breast Implant surgery?
It takes about nine months to completely recover from breast implant surgery.
What are the alternatives to Breast Implant Surgery?
Some alternatives to breast implant surgery include fat injections or fat grafting procedures, breast enlargement medications, breast enlargement pumps or hormone therapy for breast enlargement.
