Going under the knife to get beautiful looks is no longer the dominion of supermodels and celebrities. From the cover girls of magazines like Sports Illustrated and Playboy to the aspiring models and girls next door, no one is untouched from this phenomenon. Indian women are not far behind with respect to look enhancing surgeries. Be it a nose job, liposuction, breast implants or eyelid surgery, women are rushing to get the perfect look.
Augmenting breasts is one such procedure for which women are flocking to various clinics. Breast implants vary in size, shape, shell texture and fall into two categories: saline filled and silicone gel filled. Moreover, the procedure is also of two types: in one the shell is already filled with a fixed amount of solution and in other the solution is filled afterward through a valve in order to get the desired size.
The long on-going debate about breast implants and controversies surrounding it hasn`t changed many views about the willingness of women to undergo the surgery and making their bust bigger. For women who are considering implants but are still reluctant must learn about the procedure, potential risks and follow-up procedures.
After having the out and out knowledge about implants, one should decide whether she is ready to undergo the procedure. Since she is the one who has to live with the results, not a significant other, the decision has to be only hers. Of course, one can seek assistance from someone who has been there and done that. The best and most recommended option is to consult a surgeon.
Guidance from a plastic surgeon who is highly qualified, certified and specialized in breast augmentation comes very handy. His advisement is of much worth to help one decide going for it along with the type and size suitable for her. Once the mind is made-up to go under the knife, the next important decision is determining the size. In that case as well, a surgeon can evaluate her anatomy and precisely measure her chest and breasts to propose the favorable proportions for her body frame.
Surgeons don`t usually recommend breast implants to women who have anyone in the family with a breast cancer history as there are higher chances of them getting it as well. The concern here is that implants cover the low lying cancerous growth. Both, saline and silicone appear like white patches on a mammogram as a result most of the cancerous cells get tucked away. Though technicians make use of additional mammogram views to see beyond the implants, the results are never hundred percent accurate.
