What Is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation has been one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries over the past decade. Over 200,000 people decide they want to change their breast size by getting breast implants every year.
Breast augmentation improves the shape and size of the breasts. For some, it might be sufficient to use implants alone, while others may choose to combine implants with a breast lift for more dramatic results.
Breast augmentations are performed on women who had poorly executed breast surgeries and are unhappy with the results. These people might also have encountered complications due to the poorly executed surgery.
How Are Breast Augmentations Performed?
We take a case-by-case approach to breast augmentation. The specific techniques we’ll use will depend on the goals of each patient, so it’s impossible to say that there is a “typical” breast surgery. We know that different implants and incision types can be used depending on what a person wants from the procedure.
You may want to visit the breast implants page to learn more about the options available. We have four different incision techniques depending on the type of implant you select. They include:
- Inframammary Incision – This is the most common approach for breast augmentations. With this technique, incisions are made along the underside of the breasts.
- Periareolar Incision – With this technique, incisions are made along the border of the areola of the nipple. This technique often results in scars that are nearly invisible because of the natural color difference between the skin and the areola.
- Transaxillary Approach – The transaxillary approach makes incisions in the arm pit, eliminating any scarring on the breasts.
- Transumbilical (TUBA) Approach – The TUBA approach is an advanced technique that involves the insertion of implants through an incision made on the belly button. This is ideal for minimizing any visible scarring.
Our RGV Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center team specializes in performing transumbilical breast augmentations. This is perfect for patients who are looking for a breast augmentation without having to get a breast lift.
Am I A Good Candidate For A Breast Augmentation?
You may be a good candidate for breast augmentation if you are otherwise healthy and have at least one of the following:
- You have always felt like your breasts are too small or undeveloped.
- You feel that your figure is out of proportion because your wide hips cause the width of your waist to be highlighted and then, if you have small breasts, they end up making your hips appear wider.
- You feel that your small breasts limit your choices of flattering clothing, swimwear or other items.
- You are noticing a loss of volume in your breasts, sometimes after pregnancy and other times as the result of weight loss or aging.
- Your breasts have a different size or shape from one another
- You have previously had breast implants and are experiencing problems with them
- One or both breasts failed to develop normally, or have an unnatural, elongated shape
