Reasons For Breast Augmentation Surgery
Women who go to plastic surgery offices for breast augmentation surgery each have their own reasons for wanting to enhance their breasts. Breast augmentation surgery or mammoplasty using saline or silicone gel breast implants is a procedure where plastic surgeons ideally do not touch the actual breast gland at all during the surgical procedure. Most breast enhancement procedures involve making a skin incision and then tunneling around or under the breast gland to create a pocket to place a saline or silicone gel breast implant which will give the breast mound more projection and a slightly larger base diameter to their breast. Occasionally, breast lift procedures are performed in conjunction with a breast augmentation and this does involve manipulating the breast gland itself. Complications are minimized by avoiding touching the gland itself during routine breast augmentation surgery.
Breast augmentation surgery can be performed by a variety of methods and there is no one method which is best for all patients. It is common in most practices that the patient makes various decisions regarding their breast augmentation surgery. Like everything in life, there are advantages and disadvantages for each option and every patient has different opinions and desires, so you are encouraged to discuss the various options with your plastic surgeon at length to find out which option is best for you. Your breast implant surgeon will review a few common options and some of the advantages and disadvantages of each option.
