Useful Information About Breast Augmentation in Cardiff

Posted by Elitesurgical on February 12th, 2016

There are several different types of breast enhancement procedures that you can consider if you want to improve the appearance or increase/reduce the size of your breasts. Of these, breast augmentation is the most common. Breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty involves the use of breast implants to increase breast size. More than enhancing the appearance of the breast as a way to increase self confidence and self-image, breast augmentation is also done as part of breast reconstruction after breast cancer surgery or other operations that affect the breasts.

Consulting a plastic surgeon is extremely important when you are considering this operation. Like any other surgery, it involves possible risks and complications and requires follow up care to ensure health and safety.

Breast augmentation can increase the size of your breast, restore lost volume from weight reduction or pregnancy, increase the fullness and projection (perkiness) of the breasts, and improve your balance or figure. However, it can't correct severe cases of drooping or saggy breasts. If you want this managed, a breast lift may be needed in combination with your breast augmentation surgery. Lifting of the breasts can be done at the same time of breast implantation, or your surgeon may also suggest a separate operation. In any case, always consult with your doctor to ensure the best decision for your condition/case.

One of the main decisions you will have to make when getting breast implants is the type of implant to use for the operation. In breast augmentation, saline or silicone implants are placed under your breast tissue or chest muscles. While it may be hard to say which type of implant is the better choice, your surgeon may help you decide which kind is best depending on your goals. Both saline and silicone implants have their pros and cons. The come in a variety of implant sizes, textures, and shapes, but your choice will most definitely boil down to more important factors like your age, the implant's feel, its potential sensitivity to rippling, and your personal preference.

Saline implants are viable choices for patients aged 18 and up. If you prefer a silicone implant, you will have to wait four more years as it is only available at age 22. Saline implants are harder than breast tissue while silicone is much more similar in consistency and texture to real breasts. However, silicone requires a larger incision to place. A ruptured saline implant is a lot easier to detect than a silicone implant, which gives you a chance for early intervention, should the implant burst. In terms of cost, saline implants are much less expensive than silicone implants.
