The 4 Types of Breast Augmentation Procedures or Breast Surgeries
If you’re unhappy with the size, shape, or fullness or your breasts, you have a variety of breast augmentation procedures or breast surgeries to choose from. Thanks to advancements in techniques and in safety measures, women who dislike their breasts—whether because of genetics, childbirth, weight changes, or another reason—are able to achieve the desired look easier than ever before.
Enhancing your breasts can help you improve your appearance, self-confidence, and even your physical health (in breast reduction cases). To find out more, you should contact a surgeon specializing in breast augmentation in your area. Your breast surgeon can answer any of your questions, but we’ve put together a brief guide to help you get an introduction to your options.
According to the most recent data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast implants have continued to remain the most popular form of breast augmentation (and plastic surgery as a whole) year after year. Breast implants—available in silicone or saline form—are designed for women who want to improve the fullness of their breasts. They are also effective for women who have drastic size differences between their two breasts (typically due to a mastectomy or genetic factors). You and your surgeon can discuss materials, implant sizes, and the varying placement and insertion methods to help you achieve the look you desire.
Though breast enlargements are more common procedures, both men and women can experience self-image and health issues as a result of excess breast tissue. A breast reduction is a surgical procedure that lets you eliminate excess breast tissue to reduce the size and appearance of your breasts. A male breast reduction can be done with a liposuction procedure like Aqualipo, or it can involve additional surgery, based on your aesthetic goals. If large breasts or male breasts are causing you stress, you may want to consult with a plastic surgeon and discuss your options.
Often combined with breast implants, though it can be a standalone procedure, a breast lift helps you fight back against gravity. Whether your breasts are sagging due to age, significant weight loss, breastfeeding, or other genetic factors, your breast surgeon can help you enjoy perky and youthful breasts through a lift. While your body is unique, in many cases, simply lifting the breasts can create the illusion of larger breasts as well. Depending on your future aesthetic goals, your surgeon may recommend a breast lift with or without implants.
Breast Augmentation Through Fat Transfer
Do you want to enhance the look of your breasts and get rid of a problem area on your body all at once? A minimally-invasive procedure, NaturalFill fat transfer lets you contour and fill your breasts in the most natural way. NaturalFill works through the revolutionary water-based liposuction known as Aqualipo. Your breast surgeon will use Aqualipo to gently remove excess fat from somewhere on your body, move it through a secure machine, and insert it directly into your breasts to achieve your desired shape and fullness.
