If you’ve been paying attention to the tabloids, you may have come across articles discussing celebrities and models who have gotten work done on their breasts. Over the years, the techniques used to perform a breast augmentation have improved, making the procedure safer and more efficient overall.

The increased efficiency has made the procedure incredibly popular among women who aren’t pleased with the look of their breasts.

The Magic Behind The Breast Augmentation

A breast augmentation, also known as an augmentation mammoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that involves involves increasing the size of one’s breasts either by transferring their own fat or using implants. This has become one of the most sought-after procedures because it helps enhance the shape and appearance of the breasts as well as improve one’s self-confidence.

Women with smaller breasts often complain about how their figure is not proportionate or alluring enough. This is because the rest of their body may appear wider than their chest.

They also express insecurities regarding the size of their breasts. Augmentation mammoplasty is the best way for someone to improve the shape and size of their breasts, as well as their overall appearance.

What Does This Procedure Involve?

During a breast augmentation, the patient’s breasts can be restructured by using their own fat or inserting implants. In the case of a fat transfer, fatty tissue is extracted from other areas of the patient’s body such as the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. The harvested tissue is then re-injected into the patient’s breasts, which are then restructured to achieve an enhanced size and shape.

This autologous process causes no side effects as the tissue is harvested from your own body. It also has little to no downtime and you will be able to return home soon after the procedure is completed.

In case of implants, you must choose between saline or silicone gel implants. Incisions are made along the underside of the breasts and the implant is placed underneath the muscle and tissue.

The areola and nipple can also be repositioned if desired. The incisions are then closed using sutures. You will need to take an adequate amount of time off your daily schedule until your incisions heal completely. This recovery period varies from patient to patient.

What Are The Results Of Augmentation Mammoplasty?

After adequate recovery time, the results are very evident. The breasts will appear larger and fuller. They will also be more proportionate to each other as well as the rest of the body. Augmentation mammoplasty can also help improve the shape of the breasts, if necessary.

This procedure will improve the patient’s breasts and their figure. This will make them more confident about themselves as well as their appearance.

Are There Any Complications Related To The Procedure?

With autologous fat transfer, there is no chance of side effects occurring. Your body will not reject fatty tissue harvested from itself. In case of breast implants, there are chances of complications as is with any other type of surgery. These include implant rupture, poor positioning, capsular contracture, and desire for a change in implants. Any complication that may occur can be easily corrected.
