One of the most popular cosmetic surgery methods in the world is breast augmentation. There are two major types of breast augmentation procedures used. One is saline breast implants and the other is silicone breast implants. Besides working on the longevity of the implants, another major concern is to improve the methods of surgery as well. There are currently four methods of breast augmentation surgery and choosing the right method depends on the condition of the patient and the type of implant used.
Inframammary Breast Augmentation Technique
In this kind of breast augmentation technique, the breast implant is placed in the fold beween the breast and chest wall. This kind of technique is the most popular and common due to many reasons. Firstly this technique never leaves behind visible scar. Moreover due to the perfect positioning of the breast implants, which is not on the glandular tissue, milk production in lactating mothers are not affected at all.
Transumbillical Breast Augmentation Technique
Through an incision in the umbilicus, the implant is inserted and made to move to the breast position. The umbilicius is the navel. In this process of moving the implant, some breast tissues are disrupted and placing the breast in the right position becomes difficult. The advantage if this technique is that milk production is least affected if this technique of breast augmentation is applied.
Transaxillary Breast Augmentation Technique
To avoid visible scars around the breast, an incision is done near the armpit to the torso especially in the extreme outer and upper part of the breast. In this technique implants are postioned below the mauscles which does not affect the glandular tissues or nerves. It is due to this positioning that there is no affect of the breast augmentation surgery on the milk production. The scar is visible only if one raised the arm but with time the scar becomes least visible.
Periareolar Breast Augmentation Technique
The insertion of the breast implant in this technique takes place through an insertion around the arela. This technique results in duct and damage of the glandular tissues and nerves. This process actually affects the production of milk in the breast. This technique is only conducted for those who want to avoid scarring on the breast and has no intention to be mothers in future.
There are certain criteria that one has to take note of before choosing the technique for breast augmentation. The cost of this technique varies a lot of from one surgeon to another. You should have a clear clarification behind your decision to go for breast augentation surgery and the technique you opt for. Since breast augmentation surgeries are not covered under health insurance, make sure that you do enough research and choose the right surgeon before you go for the surgery.
