What woman does not want to have firm, well shaped breasts that are perfectly harmonious with the physical shape of their body?

A symbol of femininity, the breasts have enormous psychological importance for the welfare of women. However, many women feel dissatisfied because they have small breasts. In some cases, the reason may be hipomastia (small development of breast volume), or amastia (lack of breast development). In these situations it is recommended that silicone implants are used through breast augmentation surgery instead of another procedure or treatment.

With this, you can reach the size and shape of the breast that is desired, which is done by placing silicone gel implants. Generally they are inserted through a small incision of 4 to 5 cm at the junction between the breast skin and the lower half of the areola. Over time this will not be a noticeable incision. Depending on the case, the implant will be behind the mammary gland or behind the pectoral muscle. It is preferred in most cases to be behind the pectoral muscle, because the prosthesis is more camouflaged, the breasts then look more natural and hardening is less of a possibility.

Breast implants also help lift sagging breasts slightly, by loss of volume, especially after breastfeeding or weight loss over the years that in many cases causes atrophy of the gland. Your breasts will be harmonious with the rest of your body. Nipple sensation is not lost, nor does it alter their ability to breastfeed. Their inability lasts for 5 days and it is done in an outpatient surgery.

Breast implants are silicone type 3, completely biocompatible with our body. Generally used, they are filled with silicone gel as they have a consistency equal to the mammary gland. They are also filled with saline, but this is less frequently used because eventually they lose their volume and have a softer consistency than normal breasts.

They can also be filled with cohesive silicone gel; this gel is a little denser and its advantage is that if the implant gel inside breaks theoretically, it has the disadvantage that the breasts can have a consistency more hard than normal. For this reason they are not used so often.

Breast augmentation surgery is a safe, recommended procedure for quick retrieval and easy post – operative, which depends on certain factors that decrease the risks from this surgery,.
Breast augmentation surgery should be performed only by a doctor specialising in plastic surgery, who is trained and qualified for this procedure, ie, a plastic surgeon with a registered certificate.
The clinic should be a place that meets the specifications required for this type of procedure, with strict control to provide the guarantees necessary for patient care.

The implants used for breast augmentation surgery must meet international and national quality standards as well as a series of data that engage the manufacturer to the patient, providing quality assurance of their implants.
The patient should know that this is a surgical procedure, and as an integral part of this process, should be aware that there are programs that facilitate post-operative recovery, and optimise the results.
Breast augmentation surgery is done by professionals and experts with appropriate procedures and provides patient satisfaction with the effects achieved. To get complete details, please visit :
