Breast Augmentation is a term used to describe increasing the size and/or changing the shape of the female breasts. There are two main categories of breast augmentation surgeries, namely, fat transfer surgery and insertion of silicone or saline breast implants. For breast augmentation by fat transfer, unwanted fat tissue from a part of the body is removed by liposuction and then injected into the breast area whereas in the insertion of breast implants, the implants are inserted behind the breast tissue or below the chest muscles, both of these surgical techniques position the implants behind the milk ducts to prevent any complications in the future, especially when breastfeeding. There are two basic types of breast implants: Saline implants are composed of silicone shells filled with sterile salt water (saline). This type of implants gives the breasts an even shape and more of a natural feel and firmness. Saline implants may rupture as time passes, it may also wrinkle at an early stage as compared to other types of implants. However, if this type of implant leaks, its shell will collapse and eventually, the saline will be absorbed and expelled naturally by your body. Silicone Implants, on the other hand, are silicone shells filled with a plastic gel (silicone). A lot of women prefer silicone implants as they feel more natural than Saline implants. If this type of implants leak, its gel will either stay inside the shell or circumvent into the breast implant pocket. Compared to Saline-filled implants, a leaking silicone-filled implant may or may not collapse.
The typical time period for the surgery is about 1-1.5 hours and the recovery period is around 2 weeks. In 3-6 months of the procedure, the breasts start to appear natural.
