Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery and its types

Improving the beauty of the breasts can give people more confidence. The decision to have plastic surgery is entirely personal, but what you need to keep in mind is that you should avoid comparing yourself to others. Another important point about breast cosmetic surgery is choosing an experienced surgeon in this field, participating in counseling sessions and getting acquainted with all aspects of the surgical process.

Types of cosmetic breast surgeries

There are three general types of breast augmentation surgery, commonly referred to as mammoplasty. The most common types of breast cosmetic surgery include breast augmentation, breast reduction and breast reconstruction. Stay with us to review the types of cosmetic breast surgeries.

Breast prosthesis surgery

Breast augmentation is done to increase the appearance, size and lines of the breasts. Patients may need breast augmentation mammoplasty for a variety of reasons. In some patients, the breasts do not grow enough and they feel that their breasts are too small. Others tend to enlarge their breasts after pregnancy due to changes. Other patients also suffer from abnormalities such as asymmetry in breast size and tend to have the same size of both breasts.

Cosmetic breast augmentation surgery is performed using implants that can be placed under the pectoralis muscle or on the pectoralis muscle. An incision is made to insert an implant, which may be in the armpit, areola (area around the nipple), or the crease below the breast. In general, incremental mammoplasty is one of the types of minimally invasive breast cosmetic surgeries. In cases where an incision is made in the armpit, an endoscope (a thin tube with a small camera and light) may be used.

Breast implants have a silicone shell, which is generally of two types, either containing a saline solution or made of silicone gel. Patients determine their desired size by testing experimental implants. Currently, saline implants have more advantages and fewer side effects than silicone gel implants, and therefore their use is more common.

Breast prosthesis surgery involves placing a prosthesis (implant) inside the breast tissue or injecting fat into the breast, which is done with the aim of increasing the size of the breasts. This surgical procedure is mainly performed on women who have reduced breast size after pregnancy or weight loss and want round and thick breasts. This surgical procedure will also help improve the symmetry of the breasts.

Breast lift

Breast reduction surgery is another type of cosmetic breast surgery and is often performed on women who have large and heavy breasts and have significant discomfort due to the weight of the breasts, including neck pain, back pain, and numbness or weakness. During this procedure, excess skin, fat and breast tissue are removed. This type of surgery may also cause changes in the feeling of the breast and the inability to breastfeed.

Breast lift surgery involves removing excess skin and stretching the tissue around the breast, which results in lifting and pulling the breast up. Other benefits of this surgical method include changing the shape and rejuvenating the breasts.

In some women, the skin is not strong enough to support the weight of the breasts, causing the breasts to sag and sag. This condition is also called ptosis, in which there is excess skin relative to the breast tissue. To lift the breast, the extra skin must be removed. Several cutting methods are used for breast lift, including:

Inverted T-cut pattern: Also called the wise pattern. The incision is anchored or T-shaped around the chest and under the breast.

LeJeour where the incision goes around the areola and down.

Donuts or semi-areolar that this incision is made only around the areolar.

Breast lift surgery leaves a degree of permanent scarring that depends on the type of procedure and postoperative care.

Breast reduction in women

Women who have large breasts often face a number of medical problems, such as breast pain, neck pain, or numbness of the hands and fingers, as the weight of the breasts enters these areas.

This surgical procedure helps to reduce the size and shape of the breasts by removing excess fat, glandular tissue and skin from the breast.

Breast reduction in men

In men, large and overgrown breast tissue is called gynecomastia. This surgical procedure helps men who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their chest to have more confidence.

Sometimes men may experience extra skin on the chest and chest after significant weight loss, and gynecomastia surgery can help remove excess breast skin.

In general, breast reduction surgery in men is associated with the removal of excess fat and glandular tissue of the breast, resulting in a smooth and firm chest.
