Which Cosmetic Breast Surgery Procedures Are Right for You?
The female body goes through many changes throughout the lifetime. Pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and aging: all of these can actually take a toll on a woman’s breasts. This can also lead to loss of confidence and self-esteem. Many women are now opting to have breast surgery to restore their breasts to their former glory. Breast surgery can be a life-changing experience for women and can help them, to get back their confidence and self-esteem!
There are lot of different types of breast surgeries out there. So, how do you know which one is right for you? In this article, we will highlight the different types of surgeries, what to expect and how to choose the right one for you.
Breast Augmentation: It is every woman’s desire to have proportionate and symmetrical breasts. However, many women have very small, uneven or disproportionate breasts that do not fit their body type. In turn, they become more self-conscious of their physical appearance.
Breast Augmentation, also known as “augmentation mammoplasty” can enhance the size and appearance adding fullness to your breast. This cosmetic procedure can be performed for both cosmetic and reconstructive purposes. Some women opt for breast augmentation to improve their self-image and confidence while others go for it to correct breast asymmetry or to restore breast volume following weight loss or pregnancy.
This surgical procedure involves placing implants under the breast tissue to give a more contoured look to your breasts. The type of implants used for breast augmentation will vary depending on the patient’s desired look and feel. However, there are two main types of implants: saline and silicone. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water while silicone implants are filled with gel.
The breast implants we use at My Cosmetic Clinic can result in natural-looking breasts regardless of the size you choose. In your initial consultation with us, we will discuss the most appropriate method to insert your breast implants.
Breast Reduction:The number of women opting for breast reduction surgery has been on the rise in recent years. Many women with large heavy breasts, undergo this cosmetic surgery due to neck, back and shoulder pain caused by the weight of the breasts.
Breast Reduction or reduction mammoplasty involves removing excess breast tissue and skin to achieve a smaller and more proportionate bust line. The benefits of this surgery include relief from back and neck pain, improved self-image and increased self-confidence.
Breast Lift: If you are unhappy with the appearance of your sagging and drooping breasts, a breast lift may be the right solution for you. With this procedure, you can achieve a more youthful, attractive look that you can feel confident about.
A Breast lift also known as Mastopexy does not involve implants but rather lifts and tightens existing tissues to make the breasts appear firmer and more youthful. After this procedure, breasts can regain their original fullness and shape. Also, it will result in better positioning of your nipples and smaller areolas.
Overall, a breast lift can be a great alternative for women who want to enhance their breast shape without having breast implants.
Breast Reconstruction: Breast reconstruction surgery is often performed after a mastectomy in women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. With this cosmetic procedure, the desired breast shape, volume and appearance are recreated. Additionally, the nipple and areola are also recreated.
An implant or graft is used as part of this procedure. Depending on your needs, the implants are customized. It is possible that your surgeon will use tissues taken from other parts of your body, such as the lower part of your abdominal wall if grafts are used.
Breast Implant Exchange: If you want to improve the results of a previous breast augmentation procedure or increase or decrease the size of your breasts, breast implant exchange can be a great option.
During your breast implant exchange consultation, you will be offered a variety of implant options and not just standard saline or gel implants. Technology has made a great deal of progress in today’s time with regards to breast implant appearance and feel. In order to achieve your desired results, we will discuss the various new generation implants available to you.
Ultimately, the best way to decide which type of cosmetic breast surgery is right for you is to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon. They will be able to help you weigh the pros and cons of each option and help you make a decision that is best for your individual needs.
