Enhance Your Breasts with a Breast Augmentation
Although there are many areas of the body that women can be dissatisfied with, the breasts often top the list. For this reason, many women seek out professional breast augmentation services to enhance the size and shape of their busts. If you’ve given serious consideration to optimizing the aesthetic appeal of your breasts with this procedure, gaining basic information regarding the breast augmentation process is important.
Breast Augmentation: Defining the Term
Breast augmentation also referred to as augmentation mammoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that involves inserting breast implants to improve the symmetry and fullness of the patient’s breasts. Breast augmentation can also be used to restore the patient’s original breast volume after a pregnancy or weight loss.
Types of Breast Implants
There are several types of breast implants. Some of them include:
Saline Breast Implants
Saline breast implants are comprised of sterilized salt water. In the event that the shell leaks, the implant collapses, and its saline is absorbed and then naturally expelled from the patient’s body. Saline implants are effective in providing a uniform feel, firmness, and shape. They are also FDA-approved for breast augmentation candidates at or above the age of 18.
Silicone Breast Implants
Silicone implants are comprised of silicone gel. The gel is somewhat similar to natural breast tissue in terms of its feel. If a silicone implant leaks, the gel might leak into the patient’s breast implant pocket. It could also remain within the patient’s implant shell. When silicone implants leak, they do not collapse. When you opt for silicone implants, it may be necessary for you to consult with Dr. Hamawy consistently to ensure that the implants continue functioning at an optimal level. Doctor Hamawy can utilize an MRI screening or ultrasound to determine the condition of your silicone breast implants. Silicone implants are approved by the FDA and can be utilized by women ages 22 and up.
Choosing to Undergo Breast Augmentation
As many women know, lack of confidence regarding the look of their breasts can adversely affect their quality of life. Luckily, breast augmentation procedures can help patients gain confidence about their physical appearance and lead healthier, happier lives. Breast Augmentations can also be performed in conjunction with other procedures including breast lift.
