4 Important Considerations to Make Before Breast Enlargement Surgery
While breast enlargement surgery or breast augmentation as it is commonly referred, has been by far one of the most popular surgical enhancement procedures around over the past decade or longer – many women are still fairly uneducated on the procedure. Despite trends in plastic surgery like everyone’s favorite the Brazilian Butt Lift or one of the many variations on traditional liposuction procedures there are out there, the traditional breast augmentation still reigns supreme and leads the pack in terms of the most popular plastic surgery procedure, in the US, as well as the entire world! At Goals Plastic Surgery, the top breast enlargement surgeon, Dr. Voskin, has, despite the tremendous rise in the number of patients seeking out lipo 360 and BBL procedures, performed countless breast augmentation procedures. However, as new advancements are made in the surgical world every day, more and more considerations must be made by patients. And it’s very important for patients to make these considerations before they decide to undergo any form of breast enlargement surgery.
· Implants or Fat Transfer?
Probably the most important consideration to make for any patient consideration a breast enlargement procedure. As the top breast enlargement surgeon, Dr. Sergey Voskin has helped many patients decide upon their options for such a procedure. And then, those who consider implants, must then decide between saline or silicone. While implants have been the traditional option, in recent years statistics show that fat grafts increased by 72 percent in the last 2 years. The procedure involves the use of liposuction to extract fat from other parts of the body. Once extracted, the fat is processed into a condition fit for injection into the breasts. Note that only an increase by up to two cup sizes is possible with this type of augmentation.
· You Might Need a Lift as Well!
One important thing for patients to understand is that the traditional breast augmentation procedure will not help fix the issue of sagging breasts. As the top breast enlargement surgeon in NYC, Dr. Voskin often recommend women have a combination procedure performed, that includes the common mastopexy or breast lift procedure as well. Breast lifts involve tightening tissues and removing any excess, as well as potentially repositioning the areolas and nipples to more suitable positions. Many patients, especially those who have experienced pregnancy and breastfeeding, would like to both lift and augment their breasts.
· Implants Must Be Replaced!
This is one thing many women simply aren’t aware of, and many less scrupulous surgeons conveniently leave out from the procedure description. Breast implants, like most things made of such materials, have a shelf life – a specific time period in which patients must be able to then redo the procedure, with a brand new set of implants!
· The Incision Area
While most women are able to breastfeed after a breast augmentation, the chosen incision location may affect the ability to do so. Generally, most surgeons recommend that women who would like to breastfeed in the future have their incisions either in the fold underneath the breast or at the axilla (armpit), rather than an incision around the areola. This also helps patients to have the least visible incisions, so as to give a less prominent scar area.
