Breast augmentation and mastopexy are a modern cosmetic surgery technique employing liposuction and other invasive surgical techniques for increasing the size,shape,and firmness of the breasts of an average woman. A woman’s breasts are often asymmetrical,either because her breasts are too small for her frame or because they are not evenly sized. The most common areas of concern for women with breast asymmetry are the nipples,areola,and cup size.
In patients with breast asymmetry according to Atlantic Center for Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery,the natural crease in the skin from the nipple to the top of the breast may cause distortion of this crease. Breast reduction is not recommended for patients suffering from asymmetry. Breast reduction can be used to treat patients with sagging breasts due to genetic conditions such as gigantism,which is caused by an overproduction of growth hormone,or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS),which is caused by the abnormal production and activity of certain female hormones. Patients with PCOS also have a decreased number of milk glands and therefore a decreased quantity of milk to produce.
Women who want to enhance the appearance of their breasts with breast augmentation can have either one of two procedures,known as augmentation mammoplasty or submucous suction-assisted incision (SMIS). For patients who have undergone mastopexy,breast implantation is also recommended. In a typical breast implant insertion,the implants are inserted under the skin,usually under the breast fold,and then attached to a silicone ring via the incision.
If the patient’s breasts are too large or small in size,a breast reduction can be performed. There are several different methods of breast reduction and each method has its own advantages and disadvantages. The most common method of breast reduction,referred to as a “breast reduction revision”,involves removing both the areola and nipple and the tissue surrounding the implant.
One of the major advantages of breast reduction is that it can result in a more natural appearance according to the site Atlantic Center for Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery. This can result in a more natural-looking bosom as well as a more pleasing breast shape.
The disadvantage of breast reduction is that it can cause the breast to sag,which can make the patient feel unattractive. However,there are many ways to remedy this problem,including natural herbs such as breast milk,or herbs and vitamins that help promote the body’s natural production of estrogen. to keep the skin in its normal place.
Because breast implantation can be both expensive and dangerous,many women prefer to have their implants done naturally. They can choose to have the implants placed under the skin using traditional incision or a mini-incision,which involves placing the implants through tiny incisions,which are barely noticeable. These types of breast implants are more popular among women who are not satisfied with the results of traditional breast augmentation.
Many women choose to have a combination of breast reduction and breast augmentation to achieve a combination of the two procedures. If a patient’s breasts are too large or too small,she may choose to use one of several options to achieve the best possible outcome. Some women may opt to have breast reduction,implantation,or both simultaneously. Sometimes,it is a better option to combine the two procedures because having a larger breast is better than having a small one,but not always.
For example,if a woman has a full breast lift performed to reduce her breast size but her bosom does not fit properly,she may choose to have implantation. However,if she has a small bosom but wants to retain her self-confidence,she may elect to remove her implants to regain a fuller bosom. It is important to note that the combination of implants and breast reduction is most often preferred by women who do not want surgery.
Of course,many women do not want to have both a breast reduction and a breast augmentation because they feel that their bodies are just not compatible. For example,some women feel that a larger breast will make them look too old,but a smaller breast will make them look too young. They may also want to have their breasts changed because they feel that their breasts are too large or too small,or too flat or too long or too wide.
Women who choose to have both a breast reduction and a breast augmentation can find out more information from a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine what their options are. Many women will try to find a reputable surgeon who performs both techniques at the same time. However,a good cosmetic surgeon can give them the best advice about which option will be best for them.
