Introduction Two major reasons why women want to get bigger breasts are because they want to have that “wow” effect or get rid of our insecurities. Irrespective of the reason, breast augmentation procedure has become one of the most requested plastic surgery procedures in the United States and all over the world. Breast augmentation with mammary implants is one of the safest procedures on the market today since it has been performed for decades already. This procedure has been greatly improved over the years. Also, the effects of this procedure to the patient have been thoroughly evaluated for over thirty years, proving that there it does not lead to breast cancer or other auto immune diseases. The impact of breast augmentation with silicone implants This intervention has a major psychological impact as it helps many women improve their appearance, more specifically their body silhouette. Because of this, they feel more confident about their body, thereby positively influencing their life. Having said that, there are still several factors you need to consider before going through the procedure: the shape and size of your body, the dimensions of your breasts and their projection compared to the thorax, as well as the shape, position, and dimension of the mammary areola. This is important to fully understand the existing issues and what the surgeon can do to solve them. Breast augmentation with silicone implants is performed under general anesthetic, and it can last about one to two hours. There are three main ways to insert the breast implant, but choosing the suitable operative plan depends on the breast condition of the patient. The first method requires an incision along the inframammary line. It is the most commonly used method because it provides maximum visibility from a surgical point of view. The implant can be positioned through a small incision, either behind the mammary gland or behind the pectoral muscle. The scar will be a fine line. Since it is placed along the inframammary line, it will be covered by the mammary gland, making it barely visible. The second method is through a periareolar incision, which is an incision around the areola. The technique offers ideal masking of the scar, but it is mostly used for patients with a big areola and very good skin condition. In cases of pathological scarring, the scar will be more visible when placed on the areola, but if the scar heals nicely, it will be practically impossible to find. The third method is through an incision on the level of the axilla. A tunnel will be created toward the mammary gland. This method is less frequently used as it doesn’t offer very good visibility for the plastic surgeon and often creates asymmetry issues. Taking these into consideration, you will be able to choose the most suitable method for your particular case once you have discussed all the options as well as your expectations. After the breast augmentation with silicone implants As soon as the intervention is over, you will immediately notice a significant growth in your breasts. A bandage will be placed in order to secure your breasts, and will be removed 48 hours later. The girdle will be mandatory in order to provide support for the new breasts and also to help with the healing process. You should expect a certain level of discomfort and pain, but it can easily be addressed with the medication your doctor prescribes. Your arm movement should be limited for a few days since it affects the pectoral muscles in your body. Regular activity can be resumed within a week, but the patient will still be required to wear the girdle for at least 6 weeks to two months after the surgery. Nowadays, you can choose different types of breast implants. They are different in terms of shape (round and anatomical) and contents (saline solution and silicone gel of different densities). Choosing the right implants for you is very important, which is why you should have an experienced plastic surgeon who can make valuable suggestions. The plastic surgeon will need to consider both the patient’s wish as well as the actual conditions of the patient. During the consultation, your surgeon will measure your breasts and check your overall physical and mental condition. This means they will thoroughly consider the anatomy of the patient (height, weight, the circumference of the thorax, etc.) in order to find the right implants for your body. Another important criterion in choosing the most suitable breast implants is the quality of the soft tissues of the breasts (skin and glandular tissue). In addition, the quality of the implants is important to get the best possible results. This is why the price shouldn’t be the main factor in choosing one type of implant over the other. It is important to know that just because your surgeon uses round implants doesn’t mean that it is likely to rotate once inserted. They are the most commonly used and they maintain their shape whatever the position of the body might be. On the other hand, the anatomical implants offer a more natural aspect to the bust, but if they rotate, they can cause breast deformation. The anatomical implants are also more expensive compared to the round implants, but both are of high quality and come with extended warranties from the producers. Conclusion Many women have suffered their whole life with a small breasts complex, which made them insecure to the point where they would avoid going to the beach or wearing certain clothes, not to mention getting their clothes off and being naked in front of their partners. While the impact of small breasts on one’s emotional well being can’t be measured, judging by what our patients are saying, it does have a huge effect. In extreme cases such as these, getting a breast augmentation with silicone implants can get rid of your complex and offer a more sexy appearance. Regardless of the breast augmentation method you want to consider, it is always important to get all the information you need, to talk to your plastic surgeon and have clear idea in your head about all the stages of the intervention. By doing so, you will be prepared and get the best possible results.
