What happens during Breast Augmentation Surgery?
Breast augmentation is also clinically known as augmentation mammoplasty, or more colloquially, as a ?boob job?.Breast augmentation surgery is where breast implants or fat, which is known as fat transfer breast augmentation, is used to increase the size of a woman?s breasts. It can also restore breast volume which is a procedure that is often used after weight reduction or pregnancy. The process involves inserting a breast implant along with a fat graft mammoplasty in order for the breast to increase with size. It also changes the shape and the texture of the women?s breasts. Breast augmentation procedures are intended to primarily reconstruct and augment the overall appearance of the woman?s chest area. They may also be implemented for breast reconstruction following an injury or mastectomy which is where one or both breasts have been removed. This type of procedure is also commonly used to repair a chest wound which is caused by surgical removal of a cancerous tumor from the breast. In circumstances such as these, the breasts will be reconstructed through the process of breast augmentation.
The implant, which is inserted into the breast, is either filled with a saline solution or silicone-gel. The surgery can include the application of skin flaps which have been transplanted and taken from other parts of the woman?s body. This specific approach of fat-graft transfer, will act in the same way. Augmenting the size of the breasts and correcting contours and the overall breast shape, excess grafts and fat tissue is taken from the woman?s body. It is common that fat-graft breast augmentation will increase the woman?s brassi?re cup-size.
Let MEDIGO help you to find a trustworthy plastic surgeon
What you should bare in mind when researching your breast augmentation, is that it is not used for the correction of severely drooping breasts. If your desire is for the breasts to be lifted, and appear fuller, then it may be a breast lift which is required instead of breast augmentation. That is why it is so important to find a plastic surgeon who will guide you through the important decision making process. One thing that is worth bearing in mind, is that it is important to select a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). This way, you?ll be safe in the knowledge that this surgeon has undergone and met with these rigorous standards. Other things to consider, is whether or not the surgeon has had at least 6 years worth of surgical training in a medical school and an additional three years of plastic surgery training. Have they passed their exams and did they graduate from an accredited medical institution? Do they continue to engage with up to date research and with their medical education and do they practice in state-licensed, or Medicare-certified facilities?
