Breast Augmentation

Although breast augmentation procedures have been amongst the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures for several decades, both the procedure itself and the implants used are constantly evolving due to innovations in technology. In addition, as trends change, so too do the aesthetic goals of patients, which is the driving force behind many of these innovations. When considering a Miami breast augmentation, it is important to be aware of what is trending in breast augmentation surgery today.

Gummy Bear Implants

Although silicone implants have been on the market for many years, a new form of silicone implant was introduced in 2012. Known as “gummy bear” implants, these implants are comprised of cohesive silicone gel and are touted for their ability to deliver natural looking results. While previously, many women undergoing a breast augmentation in Miami hoped to attain the obviously “augmented” look, more and more women are now requesting natural looking results, hoping to increase their bust by as little as one to two sizes.

Gummy bear implants are ideal for these patients, as the silicone gel feels as natural as it looks. In addition, although they have a higher price tag, gummy bear implants have a much longer lifespan and an incredibly low rupture rate. As a result, they are quickly becoming the most popular implant type.

Fat Grafting

While previously the only way to enhance the size and shape of your bust was through a breast augmentation using implants, it is now possible to safely add volume to your breasts using fat transfer. Fat grafting is a two-step procedure, which involves removing unwanted fat from areas of the body such as the hips and thighs and transferring it to the breasts using a series of injections.

For many patients, this is an ideal way of achieving their desired results because it is completely autologous, which makes it a natural alternative to breast implants. In addition, because it removes stubborn unwanted fat from a donor site on the body using liposuction, it enables the patient to achieve two goals in one procedure.

Smaller Incisions

Although silicone is now the most popular implant type, particularly since gummy bear implants were introduced, many women are still choosing to use saline implants for their breast augmentation. The reason for the continued popularity of saline implants is that they enable the surgeon to make much smaller incisions.

In fact, in some cases, the required incision may only be a couple of centimeters, since saline implants can be inserted empty and filled with saline by the plastic surgeon once they are in place. This is advantageous for many women, as a smaller incision results in a shorter recovery and reduces the likelihood of visible scarring.

As a result of advancements in technology, women interested in undergoing a breast augmentation now have more options than ever.
