Breast augmentation or Boob Job, are plastic surgery terms for breast implants, usually done to rectify certain changes in the appearance, size, shape and overall textures for women. This procedure is not merely done for better shapely breasts but even in certain scenarios wherein a woman is affected by breast cancer or lump formations, breast implants come to the rescue. The surgical implantation approach effects the global augmentation of the breast hemisphere using a breast implant, either an implant filled with saline-solution, or an implant filled with silicone-gel.
WHO ARE THE CANDIDATES FOR SUCH A PROCEDURE?
Not everyone is gifted with the same appearance and beauty. Each individual has his/her own distinct features which demarcate them from one another. However, human tendencies as you may call it, people are always belittled on their features and appearance. This leads to nothing but low self esteem and lack of confidence. Women, on the forefront have encountered criticism since the dawn of mankind. Some women envy those with shapely breasts, or some because of heavy breasts, envy those with decent size. Thus such type of individuals resort to breast correction or augmentation procedures. Body builders have also considered breast augmentation in order to maintain a certain type of physique and hence compensate for the loss of breast mass.
TYPES OF BREAST IMPLANTS:
Saline and Silicone Breast ImplantsThere are two basic types of breast implants: saline and silicone gel. Saline-filled implants are silicone shells filled with sterile salt water (saline). Some are pre-filled and others are filled during the implant operation. Silicone gel-filled implants are silicone shells filled with a plastic gel (silicone). Although many women say that silicone gel implants feel more like real breasts than saline, they pose more of a risk if they leak.
Both saline and silicone come in different sizes and have either smooth or textured shells. Each with their own pros and cons, so it is a matter of preference.
BREAST AUGMENTATION CAN:
- Increase fullness and projection of your breasts
- Improve balance of breast and hip contours
- Enhance your self-image and self-confidence
BREAST AUGMENTATION CANNOT:
- Does not correct severely drooping breasts
- Breast lift may be required along augmentation
Breast augmentation recovery typically requires that patients minimize physical activity for 3 to 7 days before slowly resuming more strenuous tasks. The amount of downtime required, and the amount of time needed to make a full recovery that allows you to resume all normal activity, is largely dependent upon where the incision was placed, the size of the implant, and whether the breast implant was placed above or below the pectoral muscle.
If you are considering breast augmentation, you are probably spending considerable time deciding which surgeon to choose and how to budget for the cost of surgery.
