Breast Enhancement Surgery

Breast enhancement surgery is performed to beautify the appearance of the breasts. There are a few types of breast enhancement surgery techniques available depending on a patient's desired results. Mastopexy breast enhancement surgery lifts and re-shapes sagging breasts and reduces the size of the areola without adding volume. Breast augmentation is the breast enhancement surgery that enhances a woman's bust through the use of implants. Breast enhancement surgery was the second most popular cosmetic surgical technique sought by women in the United States in 2003.

Good candidates for breast enhancement surgery are women who are emotionally and physically stable and have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure. It is imperative that a patient have a clear understanding of what to expect before, during, and after the breast enhancement surgery as well as the risks and benefits involved. Neither augmentation nor breast lift results last forever as the effects of aging, gravity, pregnancy, and genetics will inevitably take a toll on the appearance of the breasts once again. Augmentation breast enhancement surgery results are not permanent because implants do not last forever. Whether due to health complications or simply time, breast implants must be removed or replaced five to ten years after breast enhancement surgery or even sooner. Some patients find that the results of breast enhancement surgery last the longest when both a breast lift and augmentation are performed simultaneously.

Mastopexy breast enhancement surgery can be performed using two techniques that differ in the type of incision used. The traditional breast enhancement surgery technique uses an anchor shaped incision that circles the nipple extends down the center of the breast and across the breast fold, while the periareolar technique only cuts around the nipple area. In both types of breast enhancement surgery, excess skin is removed, the nipple is repositioned, the areola may be reduced, and the breast is effectively lifted.

In augmentation breast enhancement surgery there are a number of options when it comes to implants and surgery techniques. Finding the right implants and the appropriate breast enhancement surgery technique that is perfect for you is best done with the expertise of a qualified cosmetic surgeon. Breast implants can be inserted through an incision made in the armpit area, the breast fold, the areola area, and even the belly button.

As with all medical procedures, there are complication risks associated with all breast enhancement surgery procedures. Anesthesia risks, bleeding, infection, asymmetry, extensive scarring, and loss of sensation are all possible complications associated with breast enhancement surgery. It is important to speak to your plastic surgeon about all potential risks of breast enhancement surgery before undergoing any procedure.
