A breast augmentation is one of the most common types of cosmetic surgery available. It typically makes use of silicone or saline plastic implants, which are installed within the tissue of the breast to enhance the size and shape of the breast. Breast augmentation is cosmetic in nature and is designed to help provide additional size to one or both breasts, as well as to even out misshapen or uneven breasts.
The procedure for a breast augmentation involves a small incision on each breast that is to be operated on. The incision is typically made just below the breast so as to avoid the risk of scarring as best as possible. Through this incision, a tissue-like plastic insert is installed and fixed into place using surgical methods. Once the implant is completely in place, the surgeon will close the incision.
The recuperation period for a breast augmentation typically takes three weeks or so, though most patients return to work before this time. During recuperation, the patient must take pain killers for discomfort and antibiotics to prevent infection. She must also avoid strenuous activity.
If you are interested in a breast augmentation in order to enhance your appearance, consult with a cosmetic surgeon for more information.
