What You Need to Know About Perfect Breast Augmentation in Huntington Beach, CA


What You Need to Know About Perfect Breast Augmentation in Huntington Beach, CA Area
The popularity of cosmetic surgery has been on the rise, especially in the area of breast augmentation. In 2019, just under 300,000 breast augmentation surgeries were performed. Still, many women have concerns about the surgical procedure often because they do not know enough about breast augmentation.

It is a surgical procedure that increases the size, shape, and fullness of the breasts. That is accomplished by placing a pair of implants under the chest muscle.

Here is what you need to know about perfect breast augmentation in Huntington Beach, CA:

Why Choose Breast Augmentation?

Women choose breast augmentation to enhance the size and shape of their breasts. Traditionally, this is accomplished with implants, which creates more balance for them with the rest of their body.

Here are primary reasons why women choose breast augmentation:
  • Enlarge small breasts.
  • Restore breast size and shape following pregnancy or extreme weight loss.
  • Re-establish symmetry between the two breasts.

Types of Implants

In all breast augmentation surgeries, implants are used to reconstruct the look of the breasts. Implants come in all shapes and sizes, but it is wise to put them into your bra to see which size feels comfortable moving about your day. Ultimately, the final decision will come down to your personal preference.

Saline implants are filled with a sterile (saltwater) solution held inside an elastic silicone shell. The design of the implant will affect the feel, firmness, and shape of your breasts. If the implants leak, then the saltwater will be absorbed into your body.

Silicone implants are shells filled with silicone gel. If you choose this path of breast augmentation, then it is recommended to have yearly checkups on the implants' condition with your surgeon. A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or ultrasound scan can confirm the condition of your silicone implants. The odds are low, but they can leak into your breastplate, which could cause them to collapse.

Two of the more popular models are round and tear-shaped implants. Round implants provide more lift, cleavage, and fullness to both breasts. Tear-shaped implants offer a more natural look in comparison to the shape of your body.

What Occurs in a Breast Augmentation Surgery?

At the start of breast augmentation surgery, the surgeon will make a small incision to create an opening for the implants. Two areas of placement for the implants could go under the pectoral muscle or behind the breast tissue. The former has a longer recovery time than the latter, and you may experience immediate pain following surgery.

Most patients can expect some swelling in the breast region, which should go away in a few weeks with proper rest. Usually, recovery time from breast augmentation surgery is between four-to-six weeks.
