As summer approaches, women begin to think about what they can do to get beach-ready. For many women, this could mean getting breast augmentation to improve breast size and contour. Also known as augmentation mammoplasty, NYC breast augmentation helps women to
- achieve fuller and perkier breasts
- correct breasts that differ in size and shape
- restore breast volume and firmness lost due to excessive weight loss, pregnancy or aging
With many options available, the popularity of breast augmentation continues to rise. According to the market research report from FIORMARKETS, the global breast augmentation market is expected to reach USD 1.96 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 7.26% during the forecast period 2020-2027.
NYC plastic surgery practices offer two effective breast enhancement options – breast implants and composite breast augmentation.
Breast Implant Surgery
This procedure involves surgically inserting FDA approved breast implants to achieve the desired enhancement. Breast implants come in different sizes and shapes such as tear-drop, or round and with textured and smooth surfaces to fit any woman’s breasts and body type.
Professional plastic surgery practices offer different types of breast implants:
- Saline-filled implants (filled with a saline solution or sterile salt water after placement in the breast pocket)
- Silicone gel filled implants (come pre-filled with silicone gel)
- Gummy bear implants (cohesive silicone gel implants, made of high-strength silicone gel)
- IDEAL implant (a series of implant shells nested together to offer a natural feel)
Breast implants are usually placed behind the breast tissue or under the chest muscle. They are placed through an incision in the armpit, at the edge of the areola, or under the breast.
Composite Breast Augmentation
Also referred to as lipoimplant augmentation, this procedure combines implants with fat transfer to offer a more natural-appearing cleavage. The procedure can provide the desired volume, correct deformities, and address asymmetry. Combining fat transfer with implants provides more versatility, especially for women concerned about breast animation deformity and patients who are athletic. The lipoimplant augmentation procedure involves removing fat from areas where it is abundant through liposuction, placing implants under the pectoralis muscle, and injecting the harvested fat cells over the muscle and implant. Fat grafting helps conceal the implant, adjusts the size and shape of the breasts to resolve imperfections, increases cleavage and fullness in the upper breasts, and improves overall results.
To be a good candidate for breast augmentation, you should be in good health. Make sure to schedule your consultation with an experienced breast surgeon to determine your candidature for the treatment. Professional NYC plastic surgeons use advanced imaging technologies such as Axis Three, Vectra 3D and Oculus Rift 3 dimensional imaging glasses to help patients visualize their breast augmentation results and make informed decisions.
