Exercising and eating a healthy diet are ways of ensuring that you are fit and that you remain in great shape. In case you are overweight, a good exercise routine and the right diet will help you to lose those extra pounds so that you can maintain your ideal weight. The problem with losing a large amount of weight for women is that the breasts also lose fat and since they have no muscles, they remain empty and shapeless.
Pregnancy and aging also cause the breasts to stretch and lose shape. In order to increase the fullness of your breasts, you can use breast implants which will restore their shape.
Why Women Use Breast Implants
A breast implant is a medical prosthesis that is inserted into the breast in order to increase the size and change the shape. If you have always had small breasts or a flat chest, then breast implants will give you the size of breasts that will be proportional to your body frame.
If you have breasts that are not similar in shape or size, then breast implants will correct the condition to give you breasts that are symmetrical. You may have breasts which are stretched out and have the shape of a tube or breasts that did not develop normally. Breast implants will give you naturally shaped breasts which will contribute to you having a balanced figure.
Points Of Discussion During Consultation
When undergoing a breast implant surgery, you first need to discuss with your doctor how the procedure will be conducted. You need to talk about the anesthesia that will be used and the incision that will be made in order to insert the implant. The placement of the implant should also be discussed as well as the scar that you will get after the surgery.
You need to know about the recovery process and the preparations that you need to make before surgery. You should quit smoking if you are a smoker and there are medications the doctor may prescribe for you to take in preparation for the procedure.
Types Of Incisions Used
There are different methods that the surgeon can use to insert the implants into your breasts. He can make an incision around the areola and then place the implant behind the nipple. This method gives the surgeon good visibility and he is therefore able to place the implants accurately thus decreasing the risk of asymmetrical placement of the implants.
The scar is also not very visible as it is made on the edges of the areola and bleeding is easily controlled. However, some women tend to lose sensation on the nipple when this incision is used.
Another type of incision that is used is the inframammary incision which is made in the crease of the breast. This incision also gives good visibility and control to the surgeon who can place the implants accurately to give a symmetrical outcome. The resulting scar will also not be very visible since it is hidden in the crease of the breast.
There are other incisions that are made away from the breast. The trans-axillary incision is made from the armpit to the breast and the TUBA incision is made at the belly button.
