More About Breast Augmentation in Maryland
Breast augmentation has shot to the front of the pack in terms of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. In 2007 there were a little more than 347,000 breast augmentation procedures in the United States, up 64% from 2000. Breast augmentation is a mainstream choice for American women today, instead of the fodder for Hollywood gossip magazines that it was a decade ago.
It is also safer today, with far fewer post surgical problems. Because breast augmentation has become so popular, some cosmetic plastic surgeons have become highly adept at the procedure and devote a large portion of their practice to the surgery. Dr. Tattelbaum is one of them.
Breast Implants and Options
A breast augmentation procedure utilizes implants to increase the size of the breasts, in order to balance the proportion of a women's figure and in many cases to boost self-esteem. What augmentation will not accomplish is a correction of drooping breasts. That calls for a breast lift, a different procedure that you may want to consider including with augmentation surgery. When you have completed your consultation with Dr. Tattelbaum you should be able to make in informed decision on that question.
There are several nuances to breast augmentation that an experienced cosmetic surgeon can discuss with potential patients. Today women have choices. There are two types of implants available today: saline implants, which have been in use for decades, and silicone implants which were approved by the FDA about ten years ago for cosmetic surgical use. Each has its advantages. The saline implants are simply saline solution enclosed in a flexible plastic envelope, while silicon implants are composed of a silicon gel in a flexible implant shell.
Saline implants require smaller incisions because they can be placed and then filled with solution. Silicon implants have the consistency of a gel rather than liquid, and many women find that they feel more natural once they have settled into place. If one of the breast implants ruptures, saline solution will be naturally disposed of by the body. A leaky silicon implant will result in silicon escaping the shell and staying in place, relatively close to the implant. In either case, revision surgery will be required.
Medical and Personal Choices
There are also options regarding incisions and even placement of the implant; some doctors opt to place it behind the breast tissue, while others will opt to put it in the chest wall behind the breast and can do so through an incision beneath the arm. Placement behind the breast tissue generally requires an incision in the crease at the bottom of the breast. Those are medical preferences that you will learn about prior to your surgery.
All of these items are discussion points that you and your doctor will cover prior to surgery. Breast augmentation has been a life-changing choice for thousands of women. Dr. Tattelbaum will discuss with you exactly what the surgery will accomplish and determine what you expectations are - with the procedure in the hands of a skilled surgeon, there should be a match.
