Women’s breasts are one of the most important organs as they are perceived in many cultures as a symbol of womanhood. When women have beautiful breasts, it increases their overall level of confidence, which is why breast augmentation surgery has become so popular these days. This popularity has given way to a huge surge in the number of beauty businesses, some by genuine experts who are truly knowledgeable and have valid certification, and some who are not. There are many cases where people have treatments or surgeries performed, and then end up regretting the results—in some cases, those results are so bad that they cannot be corrected or undone, as can be seen in news articles from around the world. In this article, therefore, we would like to provide the opportunity for any women thinking of having breast augmentation surgery to learn about what it really means, and to offer some information that may be helpful. Let’s see what we can learn today.
“I think that the general methodology is not that different, in that surgery is still the means by which breast augmentation is carried out. However, what has changed and developed quite a lot are the surgical techniques and the medical expertise of the doctors carrying out the procedures. New technologies and discoveries have made medical learning and study easier, which also means new techniques for breast augmentation surgery are being developed. The most obvious change, however, is probably the main material used in breast augmentation; silicone, which has been developed to 5th generation silicone gel implants. You will find that silicone implants today are far stronger, more resistant to rupture or have a longer lifespan. Since the material used is better quality, it promotes better adherence, thus solving issues of implant rupture far better than in the past. While there are other methods of breast augmentation currently being developed, such as fat transfer, which is when fat tissue is removed from other parts of your own body and injected into the breast area, many doctors still do not recommend this particular method because, while fat injection isn’t dangerous in itself, it can make the detection of breast cancer more difficult. At this time, while it’s not yet clear whether or not fat transfer has an effect on breast cancer, the nature of fat is such that after it has been injected and is left for a while, it can calcify and harden. Hence, when a woman goes for her annual breast cancer check-up, the clusters caused by fat necrosis and calcification are indistinguishable from abnormalities associated with breast cancer, thus causing “mammographic confusion”. As a result, doctors need to carry out a biopsy to make a correct diagnosis. This is one of the reasons why silicone implants are still the standard method used in breast augmentation today.”

Most importantly, make sure to follow your doctor’s instructions strictly after surgery. If you do, you’ll experience the positive changes you desire from your breast augmentation surgery.
