What Is Breast Augmentation?
In most cases, breast augmentation is a surgery done to help increase the size of breasts and improve their shape. Sometimes this is done because a woman is unhappy with the small breasts she developed due to heredity. Other times, after weight loss or pregnancy, women are unhappy with the reduced size or fullness of their breasts and wish to restore them to a more youthful appearance.
What Type Is Best?
There are two types of implants that are most common. First, the traditional silicone implant that is simply a silicone casing filled with a saline solution. The silicone and saline pouch is surgically inserted into the patient’s breast where it will give the appearance of full natural-looking breasts.
The second, newer form of implant is made from a semi-solid, gel-like substance. It feel similar in texture to a treat known as a gummy bear and has been dubbed, gummy bear implants. Many doctors prefer this type of implant because it is easier to custom shape and it retains its shape after surgery. It is also thought to be a safer option because the more solid nature eliminates the chances of rupturing or leaking.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Good candidates for breast augmentation in New York include those who are already physically active and mentally and emotionally healthy. Candidates should also not be pregnant or nursing as the surgery could interfere with the natural function of the woman’s developing body. If the individual is planning to have more children, it may be wise to wait before having breast augmentation, as future pregnancies could counteract the work done during the surgery.
Breast augmentation is a great way to help women restore their confidence and satisfaction with their bodies. A board certified surgeon Dr. Fiorillo can help you make the best decision for you.
