Understanding the Different Types of Breast Enhancements
For many women, the way their body looks can make or break their confidence. While there are many natural things women can do to help themselves look and feel more confident, such as dieting, exercising, getting plenty of sleep, etc., there are certain aspects of their body that cannot be changed naturally.
Many women are uncomfortable with the size of their chest. From being too small to being too large, many women consider undergoing breast augmentation in order to enhance their breasts to a size they are comfortable with and confident in.
When it comes to breast augmentation surgery, there are a few options available women can choose from in order to find the right size and type of breast enhancements they are interested in getting. Here is a guide to understanding the different types:
Before getting into the details of the procedure and the different types of implants available, it is important to keep a few aspects about the surgery in mind. For those undergoing breast enhancement surgery, it is ideal you find a cosmetic surgery center you feel comfortable with and a doctor you have complete confidence in. Moreover, breast augmentation surgeries do require about a week of recovery time, thus you will want to plan for the surgery during a time where it is convenient to rest with little to no exertion for about seven days.
Most women are good candidates for breast augmentation surgeries; however, for those who smoke or breast cancer runs in their family history, some cosmetic surgeons will be more reluctant to do the surgery, for these issues can create surgical complications both during and after the procedure.
Breast Augmentation Options
If you are considering having breast augmentation done, there are a few options for you to choose from in terms of implants. Depending upon your current body shape, preferences, and medical past, there will be certain implants that are better for your body than others.
Filled with salt water, saline implants are a popular choice for women undergoing breast enhancement surgery. These are inserted during surgery empty, and once inserted correctly, they are filled with the salt water solution. Many choose saline implants because they have a firm, symmetrical shape to them.
One of the benefits of saline implants is that if the implant were to burst, the salt water solution would drain out and eventually disappear within the body. While it is not harmful for the solution to be absorbed by the body, you will need to go back into surgery in order to fix the problem.
Differing from saline implants, silicone implants have a gel inside of them. These tend to feel more like natural breasts, as the gel is more moveable. Unlike saline implants, if a silicone implant ruptures, you may not even notice, as it will keep its shape. Most ruptures are known as “silent ruptures,” for the silicone gel tends to get trapped within the implant. However, while a ruptured implant is not a health concern, as it does not cause cancer or affect the heart, it can eventually cause pain in your chest. Most doctors recommend that women who have silicone implants have an annual check-up to ensure that your implants are fine.
Gummy Bear Implants
These implants are similar to silicone implants in terms of size and shape, but they are typically thicker than silicone implants. Their firmness makes them stronger and less likely to break, which is why some women prefer them. Though they do have their benefits, they do require a longer surgical incision, thus there will most likely be a scar at the implant site. Moreover, some gummy bear implants can rotate, which can cause the shape of the breast to look odd.
Smooth or Round Implants
Smooth implants are extremely soft, feeling very much like a natural breast. They are freer to move within the implant, thus creating a more natural look to them as well.
Round implants can make breasts appear fuller and more voluptuous, and due to their round shape, most do not need to worry about them changing shape.
When it comes to breast augmentation surgery, speaking with your cosmetic surgeon can help you determine which size and shape of implants will suit your body and needs best.
