What is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation, also called augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that gives volume and shape to a woman’s breasts. This improves the silhouette and allows correcting the so-called empty chest that occurs after pregnancy and lactation. It also corrects asymmetry problems.
How do I know if I am a candidate for breast augmentation surgery?
The ideal candidates are women in good health, who are at their weight or preferably have a BMI of 30 or less. After pregnancy, many women want to have an augmentation because breastfeeding left their breasts empty and sagging. Although there is no risk that the increase will alter future pregnancies, it must be taken into account that the breasts can fall again.
If you smoke, you have to quit for at least six weeks before and after surgery, because nicotine impairs the recovery process. Depending on your body, your health, and your desired results, you may be a better candidate for one type of augmentation over another.
Your certified plastic surgeon knows your case best and is the one who can help you determine which is the best option for you.
How do I choose the surgeon?
The same goes for any cosmetic procedure, the most important factor in choosing a plastic surgeon is their experience and certifications. The Argentine Society of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery (SACPER) offers a list of certified professionals on its website. You should review their credentials and their studies. We also recommend you make several inquiries before deciding on one or the other. We also recommend you analyze very well the promotions with very cheap prices. Remember that a bad practice can seriously affect your health.
How is the first consultation with the surgeon?
In the first consultation, the plastic surgeon performs an evaluation of the size and shape of the breasts, an examination of the firmness of the skin and the general state of health of the patient. In addition, the doctor may order a mammogram. In this instance, it will explain what the different surgical techniques are, what size it would be convenient to put on, what shape, profile and placement plane. It will always take into account the physical and anatomical characteristics of the patient and their expectations, risks and limitations.
Do not forget to mention if you smoke or are taking any medication or vitamin, the number of previous pregnancies and if you plan to become pregnant again or practice breastfeeding. Get rid of all the doubts you have, especially those related to your expectations.
Types of implants or breast prostheses
Breast implants come in saline and silicone varieties, as well as many sizes, shapes, and textures.
- Saline implants are external shells that are implanted into the chest and then filled with sterile salt water. In the event that the implant leaks, the body will absorb the saline solution and eliminate it naturally.
- Silicone implants contain an elastic gel that can more closely resemble natural breast tissue. They may need a longer incision for placement, and you may need regular checkups because silicone doesn’t naturally absorb in the event of a break.
- Cohesive gel implants are made with a silicone gel that is thicker than traditional silicone, they generally hold their shape better but require a longer incision.
- B-Lite implants are the lightest prostheses and are a novel product. They are cohesive gel silicone prostheses but 30% lighter than traditional ones.
