There are a variety of cosmetic surgery options available for addressing women’s breasts. If you are dissatisfied with the size, shape, or feel of your breasts, you are not alone. If those issues interfere with your everyday life or enjoyment, you might want to consider one of these breast procedures.
Breast Augmentation with Implants
One of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures is breast augmentation with implants. As of 2018, over 300,000 women underwent the procedure to increase their breast size with either silicone or saline implants.
Obviously, there are many different factors to consider when you opt to have breast augmentation surgery. The size and shape of the implants are important. It is essential to determine whether you prefer to have the implants placed underneath or above the pectoral muscle as well. Additionally, the placement of the incision is also an important factor. All of these things can be decided by speaking with the plastic surgeon, who will also assess your overall health, body type and other factors.
Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
One of the newer breast augmentation procedures involves fat transfer. This is an alternative to getting saline or silicone implants and is considered a more natural option. With fat transfer breast augmentation, fat from one area of the body is removed and injected into the breasts to increase your cup size by one cup.
This procedure offers a two-fold benefit. In addition to increasing the size of your breasts, it also eliminates fat from a problem area such as your abdomen, thighs, or buttocks.
Breast augmentation doesn’t always address certain issues. For example, if you have lost volume in your breasts due to losing a lot of weight or after giving birth, implants won’t correct the issue of sagging. A breast lift is a good solution as it helps to lift the breasts so that they are perkier and firmer. In many cases, a woman will opt for a breast lift in addition to breast implants or a fat transfer procedure.
While most women choose to have their breasts enlarged by getting one of the previously mentioned procedures, there are others who prefer having their breasts reduced. If you have very large breasts and suffer from continuous neck, shoulder, and back pain as a result, you may want to look into a breast reduction. It can also help you to get a more proportioned figure. This procedure is also known as a reduction mammoplasty, and is performed through the removal of excess fat, tissue, and skin of the breasts. Sometimes, liposuction may even be used with a breast reduction.
