Knowing what kind of procedure is best suited for your personal situation can be tricky, especially for women who are new to the idea of plastic surgery. This is where I deeply believe, talking to a female surgeon will help you a lot in fully understanding the possibilities of breast augmentation, and making the right decision.
A breast augmentation surgery is when a pocket is made either above or behind the breast muscle and filled with a silicone or saline implant. Breast implants are an extremely popular plastic surgery procedure. It is the most performed cosmetic surgery worldwide every year.
An implant can have a round or anatomical shape. The latter is sometimes referred to as ”teardrop-shaped”. There are also differences in the texture of the surface. Breast implants with a light structure are called textured. If they do not have this texture, they are called smooth.
But not all women who opt to have breast augmentation are doing so to gain in size. Some are choosing to undergo breast augmentation to correct issues, such as unevenly sized breasts or to give their breasts a lift.
There are four types of breast implant incision types, and after a consultation, I can help you determine which of the following is the right one for you:
I personally favour the submammary scar, for many different reasons. But mostly because the results are usually better, more aesthetic and more consistent.
Traditional breast implants may not be the best solution for every person. Fat transfer breast augmentation (otherwise referred to as fat grafting, lipo-filling or living fat transfer) is typically a great choice for women who desire a subtle increase to their breast size of about half a cup.
Fat transfers make use of a popular form of fat reduction surgery known as tumescent liposuction to remove small amounts of fat from stubborn pockets on the body. This can be from the thighs, abdomen or sides. The fat is then purified and carefully re-injected into the breasts in layers to sculpt the patient’s requested shape.
Even if you decide to do a breast augmentation by a plastic surgeon, knowing what size to go to can be intimidating at first. This is where talking to a fellow woman can make all the difference. Your female surgeon can listen to your wishes for your breast augmentation procedure and help guide you to the size that will give you the result you desire.
Many women undergoing breast augmentation want to ensure that they have natural-looking breasts and that their overall physique looks balanced post-op. This is where expertise, empathy and understanding come into play. Let me be clear on one thing: The top factors of choosing your surgeon are the surgeon’s education and the patient’s safety.
However, when all the facts are on the table, talking to a female doctor can make all the difference. While men can be excellent plastic surgeons and perform beautiful breast augmentations, sometimes iBut, even if all the facts are on the table, speaking to a female doctor can make all the difference. While men can make excellent plastic surgeons and perform beautiful breast augmentations, sometimes, when talking about a part of the body that helps define womanhood so much, it is best to talk to a fellow female.
