Basic Facts About Breast Augmentation

Many physical imperfections can be corrected by cosmetic surgery. Some procedures do not merely correct, they are able to produce really great results that leave the clients completely proud of their look after the operation. Breast augmentation, also called mammoplasty enlargement, can be said to be one of the most popular procedures among women. Some men, though, also undergo this reconstructive procedure. These men want to live according to their sexual preferences, and feel themselves as a woman.

There has been a decline in women undergoing mammoplasty, reported the American Society of Plastic Surgery. But still, they reach more than three hundred thousand in 2007. As mentioned in “French breast implants banned by Sweden” (Topnews.in), from thirty five thousand to forty five thousand women patients in Europe have received defective implants. As reported in “Register breast implants” by Ann Pederson and Kathleen O’Grady, an estimated one hundred thousand to two hundred thousand women patients in Canada have undergone breast implants procedure; 80 percent is for breast enlargement, while 20 percent is for post-mastectomy reconstruction and correction of under-developed breasts.

Even teenagers underwent breast enlargement. In 2009, 8199 teenage patients from 13 to 19 years old received breast augmentation, reported by the American Society for Plastic Surgeons in “Breast Augmentation and Age” (Docshop.com). Asian women who receive implants are also increasing. Due to their smaller built, the size of the implants should be particularly manufactured for the Asian market.

With more innovation in the cosmetic technology, the patient can already select specific procedures and implants that would be more advantageous for them. For instance, placement of the implant can be over the muscle or underneath it. The former has a one-day recovery while the latter has five days. The latter, however, can give less surface ripples and no breast sagging.

The patient can also choose from among the four types of incisions: a) under the breast or inframammary incision (best for silicone gel implant), b) around the nipple or periareolar incision, c) the armpit’s skin or transaxillary incision, and d) the navel area or transumbilical incision (also called TUBA incision). Transaxillary and transumbilical incisions leave no visible scars after the procedure. The choices for implants vary according to material (inner and outer), size and shape. Silicone and Saline implants are soft and give the recipient a very natural feel. One implant introduced by Dr. Robert Schwartz in Dallas in 2009 is the excess fat taken from the patient’s body.

It has become a trend in the cosmetic industry to offer breast augmentation and other cosmetic procedures along with a holiday package. The package includes accommodation, tour, and the cost of the procedure. This is especially advantageous for patients who come from another state or country, and who need both an augmentation and a relaxing vacation at the same time.

The psychological impact of this better look and feel upon the patient is still the primary factor why cosmetic procedures flourish. Better regulation should be enforced both in the licensing of cosmetic surgeons and the types of materials used so that the health and safety of the patients are not imperiled.Many physical imperfections can be corrected by cosmetic surgery.
