The appearance of the breast is influenced by many factors: hormonal changes associated with the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, lactation … And most importantly – gravity! As we age, human tissues tend to sag. The chest is no exception in this sense. What to do?
There are several types of breast reshaping surgery:
Mastopexy – breast lift, which improves the shape and height of the breast by removing excess stretched and sagging skin, moving the areola and nipple into the correct position.
Augmentation – breast augmentation with silicone or saline implants.
Endoprosthesis of the breast – breast reconstruction after mastectomy (restoration of lost breasts).
Reduction mammoplasty – breast reduction, is usually carried out simultaneously with a lift by liposuction or resection of excess glandular or adipose tissue.
Lift (mastopexy) and augmentation (augmentation) of the breast are in demand most often. In the first case, by removing excess skin and tissue, sagging breasts can be eliminated and a neat shape can be given to them. However, mastopexy does not solve another problem – replenishing the volume of the upper slope (that is, the décolleté area). To obtain the fullness of the décolleté area and increase the size, surgeons resort to the installation of implants.
The method of surgical intervention is chosen at the consultation after examination by a specialist and careful measurements of the condition of the breast.
But the beautiful breasts obtained as a result of the operation, of course, are not quite what was given to us by nature, especially when we talk about augmentation through implantation. What are the disadvantages of this surgical intervention?
