Silicon shelled implants are commonly used for breast enhancement. This implant could be either silicon gel or saline-filled. The implants are used to augment the breast of an individual that lack breast tissue or volume that could be genetically predisposed or environmentally induced. The female breast tissue is primarily composed of gland and fat cells and in the past, surgeons tried to inject the breast with fat that was initially obtained through liposuction from other parts of the body. However, in this day of modern medicine, this is completely unacceptable and obsolete, with undesirable effects such as hardening of the breast due to calcification, etc..

Some women also do hormonal therapy, since some of the female hormone such as estrogen leads to increase in breast size, slightly, but not enough for the majority of women. At present, the most common and accepted way to increase breast size is via breast implants placement. A breast implant is a sac of silicone elastomer that is either filled with saline or silicone, and is surgically placed under the breast tissue or chest muscle.

Silicon oil injection, which used to be performed in the past for breast augmentation had been condemned locally and internationally, since the result are unpredictable and compounded by numerous complication such as extrusion, skin necrosis and infection. Do not allow youreself to be subjected in this kind of procedure, because of its risks and deforming results. The selection of breast implant size or volume depends on multiple factors such as the proportion of the breast to body height and shoulder width, as well as the location of nipple/areola complex, and cleavage. And because the concept of breast aesthetics are constantly changing, there are many factors such as implant type, size, and incision site that should be considered to tailor the needs of each individual specifically.

The incision for implant placement may be placed at various locations of the chest/breast area such as; under the breast or at the breast fold; around the nipple areolar area; in the armpit (axillary); and the latest, at the umbilical area via endoscopic approach. The resulting scars are thin and inconspicuous, especially at the armpit area. Each of this incision has its advantage and disadvantages that must be discussed thoroughly between the patient and surgeon. Breast implant could be silicone gel or saline filled. Silicon breast implant was popularly used 12 years ago in the United States, until it was thought that it possibly causes autoimmune mediated health problems associated with leakage, that’s why saline implants is now used in most of breast surgeries.

At present, silicone implants are now gaining momentum and recent studies had come out, proving the safe use of silicon breast implant in breast enhancement surgery. The advantage of silicone implant is that it is softer and appears more natural. However, leaks may be found in surrounding tissues. Generally, saline is a bit firmer, but it is without the supposed health risks because a leak is simply absorbed by the body. The final breast size is mainly a personal decision by the patient. There are several ways to estimate the ultimate breast size. This would include the breast cup size, but this is an inexact estimate of the final size, since cup sizes vary with the bra manufacturer and how tight or loose the patient wears her bra, as well as how much breast tissue is already present. But describing the preferred cup size does aid the surgeon.
The most accurate method of estimating the implant size is to fill a plastic bag with measured amounts of water or breast implant sizer that is place in a bra with the patient’s estimated cup size. One can see with the bra on and covered by a sweater what the final result will approximate.

desired results. You need to be able to hold consultations with various
surgeons so that you discover or know their skills, experience and
results.

The first thing that you have to see in your surgeon or doctor, is that
if he/she was able to guide or help you understand more about the
procedure, was he able to help you know if you are a good candidate for
the procedure you plan to have and was he/she able to help you prepare
emotionally with procedure by discussing its after effect and what to
expect after liposuction. It isn’t just enough that he is trained
physician. There is need for you to choose a surgeon who’s trained in liposuction procedure in the Philippines. This really is a procedure that produces excellent results and is fairly safe provided that patient is properly selected and prepares for surgery.

Because it’s your body, you should have the ability to
express your desired outcome. You should only go for liposuction from a
surgeon who’s willing to listen to you. He should carefully sculpt the
body so as to produce a stunning look at the finish of it. Therefore,
you have to sit down with the surgeon prior to liposuction and clarify
the locations that you want treated.

The surgeon should also have the ability to study patient’s body profile or physique or build in order to figure out how the liposuction procedure affect patients body contour and if the results desired by the patients are desirable. This really is important to ensure that you get all-natural looking results.No one wants to look funny or artificial after their surgery.

qualification of physicians, and as soon as you receive proof of this,
you are able to be assured that you’re in secure or safe hands.

high def liposuction. There are some surgeons who will probably try to
sell you low costs or packages for liposuction. Some of those people
take your focus off the main thing which is the process itself and its
safety. These might not be qualified surgeons.

Therefore, when selecting a surgeon, you should pick 1 who lets his works speak for
itself. He should not be attempting to sell you low prices and not
telling you about hi def liposuction. This really is the only assurance
you have that the physician knows what he is doing. He ought to also be
able to clarify how the new technology functions to ensure that you
understand everything prior to signing up for hi def liposuction.

The success of  liposuction in the Philippines
significantly depends upon the surgeon performing the procedure as well
as the technology used. Therefore, when you are thinking about going
for liposuction, you need to select the right surgeon. This really is
the only assurance you’ve that you will get the desired results.
