What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty, also referred to as “boob job,” is a surgical procedure to modify the appearance of breasts by increasing the size and enhancing their shape. There are two very different goals of breast augmentation: cosmetic and reconstructive. More often, breast augmentation is done for cosmetic and aesthetic purposes.
Breast augmentation typically takes one to two hours. The implants used in breast augmentation are FDA-approved and can be of two types: either saline or silicone. These implants are placed behind the breast tissue and below the pectoralis muscle to preserve the milk-producing apparatus and secretion system, and provide the most natural looking breast enhancement.
To know more about breast augmentation, consult Dr. Breitbart to discuss the steps of the procedure, possible risks and complications, and the follow-up plan.
Why Breast Augmentation?
Breast appearance can often be essential for women’s self-esteem and feelings about their sexuality. Some women can have their breasts sagging over time, while others can have an asymmetry between the two breasts. Some women are concerned about the size of their breasts. Others worry about their shape. For such women, breast augmentation is a way to feel more confident and preserve their sexual integrity. If needed, breast augmentation can also be combined with a breast lift.
