If you are a woman who feels insecure due to your breasts being small, misshapen or because they sag too much, you are not alone. These issues can really take a hit on your self-esteem, making your feel unattractive or even less feminine. However, there is a solution that can make you look better and feel better about yourself at the same time. This is none other than breast augmentation.
One of the key categories of women who seek the procedure are those who have lost volume in their breasts due to giving birth and various other factors. A breast augmentation will help you to regain the volume and fullness you once enjoyed and is a procedure you might want to seriously consider undergoing.
A breast augmentation is also referred to as breast implants or more colloquially as a “boob job.” It is a procedure that involves implanting breast implants – made from either silicone or saline – either under or over the pectoral muscles. The end result is fuller, firmer breasts that you can take pride in as you will no longer have to worry about sagging or loss of volume.
At Nuance Cosmetic Surgery in Folsom, we rely on specific techniques that ensure minimal pain and discomfort both during and after the procedure. Doctor Kenneth Sumida also makes incisions that are small enough that you will be left with very minimal scarring. You will be put under a general local anesthesia and incisions will be made under the armpit or at the areola. Implants are put into place under or over the pectoral muscles depending on the wishes of the patient.
Generally speaking, it is often recommended that when you get a breast augmentation done, you have the implants placed under the pectoral muscle. Although there tends to be less pain with the opposite type of placement, implants under the muscle have a far more natural appearance. We will work with you during your consultation to discuss all possible options, and we’ll create a plan that works for you.
The patient is also required to choose whether to have silicone or saline implants. Both types tend to have risks, such as ruptures. However, saline is safe and the body will absorb it, while silicone leaking into the body poses potential health risks. Silicone implants are filled prior to surgery. Saline breast implants, on the other hand, are inserted into the patient and then filled afterward.
Whatever type of implant you select when you undergo a breast augmentation procedure, we will ensure you are happy with your results. Contact Nuance Cosmetic Surgery today to schedule your consultation.
