The latest break-through for Breast Augmentation surgery
25 August 2015
The cosmetic surgery sector is constantly evolving and offering us exciting new innovations and results. Breast Augmentations are still one of the most popularly performed surgeries, and these new developments look set to revolutionise the results of the surgery.
- The wide awake Breast Enlargement
Well… maybe ‘wide’ awake is a bit of an exaggeration, but it is now possible to undergo a Breast Enlargement without a general anaesthetic. Best suited to women with small breasts, looking for a small implant; the procedure uses a combination of local anaesthetic to numb the area and IV sedation to keep the patient drowsy.
- Ultra-light implants
This new type of implant is causing a huge buzz among Cosmetic Surgeons, as one comments, “I think it will transform everything, from the way we do implants to the lifespan and the complication rates.” The revolutionary implant isn’t available as yet – though Surgeons think it’s a medical innovation that’s just around the corner.
- Fat Grafting
One of the problems with the look of breast implants – particularly on slimmer women – is the possibility that you can see the outline of the implant or a rippling in its outer shell. Fat grafting can now be used to correct this.
It involves taking a small amount of fat from the thigh or stomach and using it to smooth over the visible implant – it’s sometimes referred to as ‘the icing on the cake’.
- The reinforced Breast Lift
This trend from the US sees uplifted breasts given extra support with a medical mesh, galaFLEX. The reinforcement reduced the changes of the breasts sagging again and is naturally absorbed by the body in the 12 -18 months following the procedure.
Once absorbed, the mesh leaves only the firmer breast tissue that has developed around it and in early studies has been found to reduce post-surgery sagging by half.
- Lipo reduction
This is a less invasive Breast Reduction procedure uses Liposuction to reduce the size of the breasts. Performed under a local anaesthetic the procedure involves injecting a mixture of adrenaline and saline into the breast to separate the fat from the breast tissue, before it is sucked out using a cannula.
