What is Breast Surgery?

A Breast Augmentation or Augmentation Mammoplasty is a surgical procedure that aims to increase the shape, size, or fullness of the breasts.

Modern Surgical Arts of Denver offers the following breast surgery procedures:

Why undergo a Breast Augmentation?

A Breast Augmentation can be done to:

  • Enlarge breasts that are naturally small
  • Restore the size and shape of breasts after pregnancy
  • Restore the size and shape of breasts after weight loss
  • Restore the size and shape of breasts after breastfeeding

If you have plans to have a child or lose weight, a breast reduction surgery might have to be postponed as breast feeding will prove challenging following the procedure and weight can result in changes to the size of the breasts.

What are Breast Implants?

A Breast Implant is the medical prosthesis that is placed inside the breast to augment, reconstruct, or create the physical form that is desired.

There are three main types of implant, these are:

  • Saline Implants – these are filled with a sterile saline solution, similar to salt water. The solution is held in an elastomer silicone shell and can be filled with different amounts of saline. If a saline implant leaks, the solution will be absorbed by the body and expelled naturally.
  • Silicone Gel-filled Implants – these consist of a silicone outer shell filled with a silicone gel. If this type of implant leaks the gel will either stay in the shell or escape into the breast pocket, so it is important for patients who choose this implant to carry out regular checks with their doctors.
  • Alternative Composite Implants – these may be filled with polypropylene string, soy oil, or some other material.

Who is a candidate?

If you are unsatisfied with the shape, size, and contour of your breasts, then this procedure may be for you.

Breast augmentation may also help after pregnancy, weight loss, if you are unhappy with the size or droopiness of your breasts, asymmetry or unevenness in breast size caused by developmental problems, or breast cancer surgery performed in the opposite breast.

If you experience one or more of the following feelings or conditions, then you may be a good cdidate for Breast Augmentation:

  • You are worried by the feeling that your breasts are too small
  • Clothes that fit well around your hips are often too large at the bustline
  • You feel self-conscious wearing a swimsuit or form-fitting top
  • Your breasts have become smaller and lost their firmness after childbirth
  • Weight loss has changed the size and shape of your breasts
  • One of your breasts is noticeably smaller than the other

What to expect from a Breast Augmentation procedure?

A general anesthetic is usually used so that the patient is asleep during the surgery. There are different incision options available such as:

  1. Inframammary Incision – this is done under the breast
  2. Transaxillary Incision – this is done in the armpit
  3. Periareolar Incision – this is done around the nipple

The type of incision that is used depends on different factors such as how much enlargement is desired, the patient’s anatomy, the type of implant, and the preference of the surgeon and patient

The implant is inserted into a pocket. There are two types of placement for this:

  1. A submuscular placement – it is placed under the pectoral muscle
  2. A submammary/subglandular placement – it goes behind the breast tissue and over the pectoral muscle

The incisions are closed with layered sutures or stitches in the breast tissue. Stitches, adhesives, and surgical tape close the skin and keep it closed. At first, incisions will be visible but these will fade in time.

Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery

  • The breasts will be lifted and look firmer
  • Bras will fit more comfortably
  • The overall silhouette will be more balanced and attractive
  • Clothes will fit better
