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 techniques continue to improve, there are more reasons than ever to consider breast augmentation if you want to boost your confidence in your figure. Here’s what to know about modern breast augmentation and how it has improved over the years.

What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that involves the implantation of saline or silicone gel-filled breast implants into the breast tissue. These implants can be placed under the muscle or subcutaneously and are used to create the shape of a more natural breast appearance. The goal is larger breasts with more projection if your breasts are naturally small, flat, or noticeably uneven.

Reasons Why Breast Augmentation is Better Than Ever

1. Plastic surgery research has dramatically improved over recent years

Today, plastic surgeons use the most advanced, medical-grade materials, meaning your implants will last longer and be of higher quality. It was not always the case that breast augmentation was as safe and effective as today. Plastic surgery research has dramatically improved over recent years, and breast implants are one of the most studied medical devices ever. You can feel confident that your breast augmentation is backed by many years of research and study by the plastic surgery field as a whole.

2.  Plastic 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. 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 a smooth, successful procedure.

3.  New techniques and implants

Plastic surgeons 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 rupture. And new incision techniques mean that implants can be placed with smaller incisions 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.
