The breasts are an extremely personal area of the body. When a woman is unhappy with her chest area, it can cause her to withdraw from certain social and intimate scenarios, especially those that require the breasts to be more exposed (such as at the beach or in the bedroom).
Choosing a breast surgery expert with years of experience and proven results is essential to the process of transforming your body. You are a butterfly in the making, so let’s take a look at how to accomplish this.
Best Breast Augmentation Techniques
Modern techniques are safer and less intrusive than, say, twenty years ago. No-scar breast augmentations are now available; smaller incisions, a variety of incision locations, and the gentleness of the surgeon are all paramount to getting excellent results.
With today’s cutting edge methods, patients experience less blood loss and post-op pain, swelling is greatly reduced, and they are able to return to their normal routines much faster.
Best Materials for Enhancement
The best surgeons should have a variety of options for augmentation materials. Saline breast implants are filled with sterile salt water. A rupture does not usually post any risk to the patient. The downside is that saline is firmer and less pliable than a natural breast.
Silicone gel implants are much softer and feel more like a natural breast. If an implant like this breaks, however, it is much more difficult to detect because it is a very slow process. The jury is still out on whether free silicone from a ruptured implant poses any health risks or long-term health effects.
Cohesive silicone gel, or the gummy bear implant, offers softness and the shape of a natural breast without the risk of silicone spillage in case of rupture.
Fat transfer to the breasts, or natural breast augmentation, is a 100% natural enhancement of up to one cup per session. It uses the patient’s own body fat via a liposuction procedure.
Best Equipment in the Operating Room
General anesthesia is usually used for breast surgery. You’ll want to either have surgery in a local hospital setting with an anesthesiologist or in an accredited surgical suite (look for AAAHC Accreditation in New York) with an anesthesiologist.
The operating room should be spotless, organized, and well stocked with fresh supplies and medications. The room should have adequate overhead lighting for the surgical team.
Ask your surgeon if they use disposable instruments or if a certified sterilization process is performed on the re-usable instruments.
