Everything You Need to Know About Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure that aims to enhance the size, shape, and symmetry of breasts. It involves the insertion of implants either under the breast tissue or chest muscle. Breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure performed every year.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation can address asymmetrical or underdeveloped breasts due to genetics, aging, pregnancy, or weight loss. Breast augmentation can also restore the breast volume and shape lost due to aging, pregnancy, or weight loss and also after mastectomy or lumpectomy for breast cancer treatment.
Risks of Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation, like any surgery, carries some risks and complications. To minimise these risks it is important to consult with a surgeon who is experienced and confident in this procedure and only operates in accredited facilities.
Choosing the Right Implants
Choosing the right type, size, and shape of breast implants depends on your body anatomy, lifestyle, and personal preferences. It is crucial to consult with an experienced and qualified surgeon who can guide you through the decision-making process and help you achieve your desired results. Some of the factors to consider include implant material type, implant shape (round or teardrop), implant profile (low, moderate, or high), incision location (periareolar or inframammary) and implant placement (subglandular or submuscular)
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
