Breast augmentation sometimes referred to as “breast aug” or “boob job” by patients, involves using breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of the breasts. Breast augmentation has been one of the most popular cosmetic procedures that involve placing breast implants under the breast tissue or chest muscles. This procedure can also restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy, achieve a more rounded breast shape or improve natural breast size symmetry. Many women report much higher levels of self-confidence and happiness following breast enhancement procedures and are extremely satisfied with the results of the surgeries.
There are two main types of breast augmentation – breast implants and fat transfer augmentation. Saline implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution. The shape, firmness, and feel of the breast will be affected by the amount of solution in the implant. Similarly, silicone implants are made of silicone gel that feels and moves much like natural breast tissue. In a fat transfer breast augmentation, Dr. Rafi Bidros board-certified plastic surgeon uses liposuction to take fat from another area of the body so that it can be injected into the breast area. This type of augmentation is usually for people who want a relatively small increase in their breast size.
An individual can be a good candidate for breast augmentation if:
· An individual is dissatisfied with breasts losing shape and volume after pregnancy, weight loss, or with aging
· An individual is unhappy with the upper part of the breast appearing droopy/saggy
· Breasts are asymmetrical
· Have realistic expectations
· An individual is uncomfortable with the size of the breasts
· One or both breasts failed to develop normally or have an elongated shape
It’s important to note that since every women’s body is unique learning what to expect post-surgery and recovery will help patients better prepare for what can be a life-transforming experience. Breast augmentation is a deeply personal procedure and it’s important to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon before the surgery.
