Do women with great breasts pass you by? Do you look in the mirror and frown? Well you don’t have to stay behind if you don’t want to. Don’t throw hope out the window just yet. You might be thinking of going for small breasts enhancement to enjoy a new look. There is no need to feel guilty about it. Breast augmentation is the most commonly performed surgical procedure for cosmetic purposes in the United States according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. So many women with small chests are undergoing small breasts enhancement and ending up smiling with satisfaction every time they look at their chests. Here’s some information on small breasts enhancement if you’re thinking about undergoing the procedure or recommending it to your friend.
Small breasts enhancement surgeries began as early as 1895 to increase the size and improve shape of the female breast for cosmetic purposes. Vincent Czemy, an Austrian-German Gynecologic and Oncologic surgeon, was one of the first to attempt small breasts enhancement. The implant he used for small breasts enhancement in his subject came from the woman’s own adipose tissue or fat tissue from a lipoma (a fat tumor) on her back! A while later, in the early to mid 1900s a host of different materials were tried for small breasts enhancement. These included glass balls, ground rubber, ivory, polyethylene chips, polyethylene tape or chips wound up into a ball and even ox cartilage!
In the 50s and 60s, silicon injections were given to an estimated 50, 000 women for small breasts enhancement. It takes approximately from one to two hours to complete surgery for small breasts enhancement. There are many surgical approaches your plastic surgeon could use. The differences between the surgical approaches lie in the type of incision given, the type of material implanted and where that implant is placed. Silicon gel implants require a longer incision so the most preferred cut is below the breast in a crease called the inframammary fold. This provides a wide access channel for implant installation. Saline implants don’t require a big incision.
There is a wide array of synthetic implants to choose from today. The first saline-filled breast implants for small breast enhancement were first produced in France in 1964. Current saline-filled implants are a lot thicker than those in the past. The interesting thing about saline implants is that there insertion is cosmetically more appealing than silicone implants. This is because saline implants are empty and they are filled after insertion into breast tissue. The wound heals with a narrow scar. On the other hand, silicon implants are filled before there insertion.
The silicon implants have 5 generations in total. The 5th generation “gummy bear” implant is in experimental stages but there is a lot of promise. So what is the recovery time for women undergoing small breasts enhancement? Only a week is required for recovery. But women might have to stay away from strenuous activity for a period of up to 6 weeks. That’s perfectly fine for the cosmetic appeal you could enjoy afterwards. Now you can be the one passing others by with a smile.
