Breast Augmentation is done using saline or memory gel implants that give a balanced size, shape and form to the breasts. The FDA has approved the use of both implants after studies had proved that they are safe and cause no serious complications.
Innovative Surgery for Attaining Symmetrical Breasts
In almost all cases, the goal is to make the distinctly smaller breast proportionate to the larger one. The breast implant is surgically inserted behind the small breast underneath the muscle (submuscular) rather than immediately underneath the breast tissue (subglandular). This would bring about a more natural, softer breast and provide more coverage over the implant.
Implants are placed through one of four incisions: in the crease under the breast, through the areola (at the border of the colored part around the nipple), through the belly button, or through the armpit.
New surgical techniques followed make breast augmentation safe and simple. The procedure takes approximately 1-2 hours and is ideally performed in a fully accredited on site surgical suite under general anesthesia. Sometimes, local anesthesia with a sedative, also called conscious sedation, can be used. As it is an outpatient procedure, it does not involve lengthy stay in the hospital or clinic.
Find a Reliable Plastic Surgeon
It is important to discuss your concerns with an experienced plastic surgeon and understand how you can personally benefit from breast augmentation. Breast augmentation to correct breast asymmetry is now opted by many women to improve their bust line. However, as in all cosmetic procedures it is important to maintain realistic expectations.
