Using Breast Implants to Augment Breast Volume and Projection
Well-proportionate body contours play a vital role in not only enhancing the physical aesthetics of the body, but also in boosting your self-confidence and your sense of pride. Having fuller, shapely breasts form an integral part of your physical composition that helps you achieve the perfect figure.
While some women are naturally blessed with voluminous perky breasts, others aren’t so lucky and often times, feel insecure with their bodies. If this sounds like something you’re struggling to deal with, then you may need to undergo cosmetic procedures for enlarging and augmenting your breasts to achieve a voluptuous silhouette.
What are Breast Implants
Breast implants are artificial prosthetics that are used by cosmetic surgeons to provide a more appealing shape and increased size to a woman’s breasts. Also known as breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty, the procedure involves placing saline or silicone implants on the chest and repositioning the nipple to achieve natural-looking, perky breast.
Breast implants are also employed in reconstructive plastic surgery for restoring the natural breast mound for patients who have undergone mastectomy or suffer from a congenital defect or deformity of the chest wall.
What to Expect During the Breast Augmentation Surgery
The breast augmentation surgery is typically carried out by qualified cosmetic surgeons to enhance the volume and projection of the patient’s breasts. The patient is administered with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia that puts them to sleep for the duration of the surgery. This helps to eliminate discomfort.
Next, the doctor will make tiny incisions along the inframammary fold, the areolar edge, or within the armpit. The breast implants are then placed within the pocket beneath the pectoral muscle and the incisions are subsequently closed. The nipple may also be repositioned to a higher profile to provide it with a more uplifted look.
The Different Types of Breast Implant Projections
Patients can have the size and texture of their breast implants customized according to their unique needs and requirements of breast augmentation. Also, the profile of breast projection required varies from person to person.
In general, there are mainly three types of implant projections that can be achieved through the breast augmentation surgery namely high profile, moderate profile, and low profile. Your doctor will help you decide the most suitable implant projection for your body type to achieve the most proportionate contours.
High Profile Projection
As the name suggests, these implants have the highest projection relative to the diameter of their base. These implants are best suited for women with smaller chest diameter and help achieve the depth required to create a fuller look.
Moderate Profile Projection
The moderate profile was long regarded as the standard implant size, before the different projection profiles were introduced. These implants are highly effective in achieving a round, normal looking breast with added volume and perkiness and are best suited for women with smaller frames looking to increase their bust size.
Low Profile Projection
The low profile implants feature the smallest forward projection and are highly suitable for women who have larger frames. This is because they help achieve a fuller breast, without appearing over the top.
