Breast augmentation and breast enlargement procedures through the use of breast implants (both saline and silicone breast implants) are the most common cosmetic surgery and plastic surgeon procedures performed in America today because women like having a choice. The most common procedures are the Transaxillary Augmentation Procedure, which involves a small incision under the armpit, the Periariolar Incision and the Inframammary Incision. Breast implants are placed under the muscle, which means a lower rate of complications, more natural appearance, and easier interpretations of mammograms.
Breast enlargement and breast augmentation is most appealing to three types of women:
- self conscious women with smaller breasts
- women who have experienced a decrease or loss in breast volume after having children, and
- women with sagging breasts as a result of age or child-bearing. Breast enlargement provides a women with a boosted sense of self-esteem and self-image.
Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia, with numbing medicine placed into the breast to make the postoperative recovery period more bearable. Most women are back to work in a week, and bruising and swelling will take 2-4 weeks to improve.
