Breast augmentation is one of the most popular and well-known of all plastic surgeries. You probably already know how they work in a very basic way: they increase breast size, usually via an implant. You may be less aware that fat transfer-based procedures are also a safe and viable option for smaller changes. The surgery can be for strictly cosmetic purposes to help women look more fabulous and feel more confident, or as part of breast reconstruction procedures.
At Huntington Plastic Surgery Institute, our team of board-certified plastic surgeons and first-rate medical professionals are here to help our patients achieve their appearance goals while also feeling their best.
How Does Breast Augmentation Surgery Work?
As mentioned above, breasts can be enlarged through saline or silicone implants, as well as the patient’s own body fat. For those who feel embarrassed or uncomfortable with their breast size, breast augmentation can boost a woman’s body image and overall confidence. This is true not only for women who would like a larger bust size but also for those who are concerned when its volume or shape is affected by age, pregnancy, or other factors.
Implants are the better known and more popular option because they allow for more dramatic outcomes. Fat-transfer techniques are attractive and patients agree that they look and feel very natural, but they can only enlarge the breasts by about one cup size. Therefore, they are obtained by women who are happy with a more subtle increase in the volume of their breasts.
