Over the last 15 to 20 years, breast enlargement surgery has become very popular for woman that are born with small breasts and might benefit from the confidence boost that comes along with a successful surgery. If you are looking to get breast enlargement surgery, then you are going to be getting breast implants installed, or fat moved from another part of your body to your breast area. The movement of fat for breast enlargement is called fat transfer breast augmentation.
Often times after a woman is pregnant or has a severe amount of weight loss, they might see a change in the size and shape of their breast. The breast enlargement surgery can restore some of the size and shape of your breasts, but there is one thing that breast enlargement will not accomplish. If you have severely sagging breast, you are not going to be able to fix that with a breast enlargement.
However, you can go through a procedure called a breast lift and that often times will change the way your breasts are sagging. If you get the breast lift at the same time as your breast enlargement, or augmentation, that can correct both issues at the same time. In most cases, both surgeries can be done at the same time. If not, you may be required to have two separate operations to get the job done. If you have questions about whether you will need one or two procedures, you should ask your doctor.
Breast enlargement, or augmentation is usually referred to as “augmentation mammaplasty” in a clinical setting. The benefits of a breast enlargement include increasing the fullness and projection of your breasts, improve the balance of your body and enhance your self image and self confidence. In some case a breast augmentation is used to reduce the size in order to take pressure of the back and upper body of a large breasted woman.
If you lose a breast or two due to illness like cancer or even an auto accident or injury, breast reconstruction with breast implants can be used to restore your look. If you choose to go with breast enlargement surgery, you can choose from silicone or saline implants and each of them has its own benefits and precautions. In most cases, you are going to be paying between $5,000 and $10,000 for the surgery and because it is considered a cosmetic procedure, your insurance is not going to cover the costs of a breast enlargement. Age restrictions require a person to be 18 for saline implants and 22 if you are going to go with silicone implants for your breast enlargement.
