Breast augmentation surgery increases or restores breast size using silicone gel implants, saline implants or in some cases, fat transfer. One of the most popular and frequently performed aesthetic surgery procedures, breast augmentation has a long and successful track record in satisfying women who wish to enhance, regain or restore balance to their figures.
There are many choices for increasing the size of the breast and can be tailored according to individual patient.
Saline-filled breast implants are filled with sterile salt water..
Silicone-filled breast implants are filled with soft, elastic gel and are available in a variety of shapes. All silicone breast implants may require a longer incision for implant placement.
Cohesive gel silicone implants, also known as “gummy bear” or “form stable” implants, are filled with a cohesive gel, made of crosslinked molecules of silicone, which makes them a bit thicker and firmer than traditional silicone implants.
Autologous fat transfer removes fat through liposuction from an area of your body in which there are abundant fat cells, such as your thighs, abdomen and hips. After a process of preparation and refinement, the fat cells are injected into your breast. This is a procedure being preferred over breast implant augmentation and many ladies who have had implants are replacing their existing implants with their own fat and research has proven it for safety and effectiveness.
