Why Breast Augmentations Today Are Better Than Ever

Breast augmentation has been one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures for many decades. As technologies and breast implant techniques continue to improve, there are more reasons than ever to consider breast augmentation if you want to boost your breast volume and confidence in your figure. Here’s what to know about modern breast augmentation and how surgical procedures have improved over the years.


Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that involves either saline implants, silicone implants, or replace implants into the breast tissue. These saline or silicone implants can be placed under the chest muscle or pectoral muscle and are used to create the shape and appearance of natural breasts. The goal is a larger breast size with more projection if you suffer from sagging breasts, breast flattened from breast feeding, or asymmetrical breasts.


1. Breast augmentation surgery research has dramatically improved over recent years

Today, plastic surgeons use the most advanced, medical-grade materials, meaning your breast implant surgery will last longer and be of higher quality. It was not always the case that a breast implant procedure was as safe and effective as today. Cosmetic surgery research has dramatically improved over recent years, and traditional implants are one of the most studied medical devices ever. You can feel confident that your implant insertion is backed by many years of research and verifiable surgical techniques developed by more breast surgery researchers.

2.  Cosmetic surgeons have a wealth of experience in treating implant complications

Board-certified plastic surgeons have access to the latest scientific information about breast implants, complications, and the leading breast augmentation techniques – information that hasn’t always been as widespread as it is now. Advancements in the surgical incision have minimized the incision site, leading to less scar tissue around your chest muscles. If you’re concerned about the risks, then make sure to look for a board-certified plastic surgeon. They’re your best bet for mitigating risks and achieving smooth, successful breast implants.

3.  New techniques and implants

Researchers are constantly working on developing better techniques and newer technologies to make surgery faster and safer than ever before. Newer implants, like gummy bear implants, are one new technology that can reduce the health risks that come with implant leakage and implant rupture. Gummy bear breast implants create final results that appear similar to silicone gel implants. And new incision techniques mean that breast implants can be placed with smaller incisions in the surgical site than ever before so you have less risk of visible scarring.

4.  Better recovery has improved every aspect of breast augmentation

Plastic surgeons have developed revolutionary ways to recover from breast augmentation faster and with less discomfort. They’ve also learned more about ways to prevent complications like capsular contracture, a complication that can require implant replacement. With faster, more effective recovery, you can enjoy better results and a smoother breast augmentation process.

5.  Breast augmentation is more affordable than ever before

The cost of breast augmentation, as well as its associated material costs, has gone down as technology and the materials used for your implants have improved. These things mean that your procedure can be more affordable than ever before.
