The first breast augmentation was done on Timmie Jean Lindsey in the year 1962 which caught a lot of media attention. It is almost 50 years down the lane and today breast augmentation surgeries are the second most popular surgery in the world. In a 2010 statistics report, 1.5 million women globally went for breast augmentation surgeries. Since breast augmentation is not directly a part of mainstream medical science there are many women who stll hardly have an understanding about the usual methods of breast enhancement.
Saline Breast Implants
These are breast implants that have sterile salt water in them. The outer shell of this kind of breast implants is made of silicone. They are inserted empty through a small incision and the sterile salt water is inserted afterwards. This kind of breast implant is considered to be safe as even in case of rupture, the sterile salt water mixes in the body space and does not create any complications. The disadvantage of this implant is that they do not come with a huge longevity. Hence one has to repeat the breast augmentation surgery after three or four years.
Silicone Breast Implants
These kinds of implants are most popular because they provide the most natural feel to the breasts. They are made of silicone shell which contains silicone gel inside. A comparatively larger incision is done to insert this breast implant. Till 2006, it was not approved by the FDA as use of this implant was suspected to be a cause of cancer and lupus problems. This is because in case of rupture, the silicone gel creates a complication in the breast which is called capsular contracture. But with the invention of the new and improved method breast implants, namely the cohesive gel implants the fear of rupture no longer exist. Even if a rupture takes place, the silicone gel has an inherent cohesiveness due to which they stay in the same place rather than drifting away from the position.
Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Those women who have a fear to go for breast augmentation surgeries go for this method of breast enhancement. It is a non-surgical process where fat is inserted in the breast through an injection. The injected fat tissues and micro cells are grafted from the fat accumulated body parts of the patients. Through the method of liposuction, fat is grafted from areas like buttocks, thighs or abdomen and is transferred to the breast. This is considered to be the most natural way of breast enhancement as there is hardly any side effect involved. Moreover, there is absolutely no complication in the production of milk in lactating mothers.
It must be remembered that breast augmentation methods are not part of mainstream medical science and no health insurance covers the expenses. So do not hurry while the choosing the right surgeon.
