According to statistics, the vast majority of women are dissatisfied with the size of their breasts. Without intervention, the bust can increase during pregnancy, with weight gain, before menstruation. In other cases, to correct the shape you will have to resort to methods that have proven to be effective: surgery, massage, sports, cosmetology.
In order to choose an effective and safe way to enlarge the mammary glands, it is necessary to take into account her initial state, the result of the planned transformation, the patient's general health.
Breast augmentation surgery techniques
Breast augmentation with implants is characterized by access to the bag where the silicone prosthesis will be.
In most cases, the doctor will cut the tissue around the circumference of the nipple. This is because the scar will be invisible in the areola, and the reduction of the nipple diameter is necessary for almost all patients who choose plastic surgery.
Access through the armpit or area around the navel is used less frequently, as this technique is much more complicated and requires long-term rehabilitation.
The method of performing the operation may differ in the location of the implant: under the gland, under the muscle or a combined method.
Expected result of breast augmentation with implants
As a result of the operation with the use of silicone prostheses, the bust can be enlarged in various sizes. But to assess how harmonious the new shapes will be, 3D modeling is used - visualization in a graphic program in which the patient's photos are loaded.
Almost 95% of women who have undergone mammoplasty are satisfied with the result, unlike the statistics of another popular operation - rhinoplasty, where the number of repeated consultations with the surgeon is high.
Types of implants
The implants are differentiated by their shape:
- round; anatomical
- , teardrop shaped.
The choice is made by the patient based on aesthetic preferences and body type. Anatomical prostheses look natural; after tissue healing, the surgeon's intervention will not be noticeable. But round implants do not lose their shape, even several decades after the operation. To avoid the migration of artificial breasts, prostheses with a textured surface should be chosen instead of smooth.
It may also differ in the composition of the implant filling:
- saline solution.
Prostheses filled with saline solution are soft to the touch and have the most affordable price. Gel and silicone make the implants firm and elastic. Gel-filled prostheses are not always rigid: there are three degrees of density:
- soft, which lose their shape faster than others, but are indistinguishable from the mammary glands;
- firm, maintaining its shape for a long time;
- soft touch, which is a compromise between hard and soft.
To select an implant, the surgeon must describe in detail the result he wants to achieve after the operation and whether the bust should look natural.
With fluctuations in body weight, lactation or with an initially large breast size, ptosis develops inevitably: the bust sinks, looks empty. In this case, it is necessary to excise the excess fabric to return a beautiful shape. In this case, the prostheses cannot be used, as the breast visually becomes more bulky after the operation.
The method of surgery depends on the severity of the ptosis. With a slight elevation, periareolar surgery is usually used, in which the surgeon makes two incisions: along the outline of the areola of the nipple and above. The excess tissue flap is excised and the edges of the two incisions are sutured.
If the patient's breasts are more deformed in the upper half and the nipples are directed downwards, the half moon cut method is used when the nipple is raised in the same way as in periareolar mastopexy.
For significant ptosis, an anchor lift is used, in which an incision in the form of an anchor is made, the upper end of which begins at the nipple and the lower line runs horizontally along the breast fold.
Endoscopic breast augmentation
Endoscopy differs from normal operation by using special equipment that allows an incision of up to 4 cm in length to insert the prosthesis from a distant point of the chest. The surgeon can observe the process of placing the implant under the muscles on a screen, where the image from an endoscope equipped with a camera is transmitted.
This method of surgical intervention is safe, although no one can guess the unnatural nature of the breast, as there will be no signs of intervention in the bust.
Breast augmentation in the salon
If you plan to increase your bust by a maximum of 1 size, you can resort to cosmetic procedures that stimulate blood circulation and strengthen the skin.
During myostimulation, there is an effect of current discharges on the pectoral muscles. The mammary glands do not increase in size, but the muscles become bulky. A similar effect can be achieved with the help of physical exercises, but sports, unlike the course of myostimulation, have many contraindications.
Microcurrents, such as myostimulation, are a procedure in which an electric current is applied. But in this case, it does not reach the muscles, but the skin. The improvement of local metabolism affects the reduction of collagen fibers, responsible for the firmness of the skin.
The laser helps to firm the skin and eliminate small ptosis. In some clinics, the procedure is called laser rejuvenation: by strengthening the breast frame, you can make it more voluminous and elastic, but it will not be possible to increase the bust size in this way.
Mesotherapy or biorevitalization
Cosmetology by injection is one of the most effective ways to improve the condition of the skin. Biorevitalization and mesotherapy allow you to inject hyaluronic acid and vitamin complexes into the desired depth of the skin. And the injections themselves cause an accelerated production of elastin and collagen for the regeneration of needle-damaged skin.
Treatments aimed at improving the condition of the skin cannot enlarge the breasts. But you can insert fills in the bust, which will make the forms lush for up to six months.
Before breast augmentation with contoured plasty, you need to make sure that there are no contraindications:
- decreased blood viscosity;
- infection in the body;
- allergies or autoimmune diseases.
How to enlarge breasts using popular methods?
Numerous alternative breast augmentation methods are generally ineffective. Therapy methods such as massages, medications, sports and special cosmetics have a proven clinical effect, while decoctions, infusions and lotions do not affect the size of the mammary glands and muscles in any way.
Massage to increase breasts
Massage is an effective method to enlarge the breasts without surgery or injections. It helps to improve local circulation, strengthens muscles and tightens the skin. Immediately after the procedure, the effect of a slight breast enlargement,occurs, but disappears after a few hours.
Contraindications for massage are:
- cysts; neoplasms;
- sensitive skin prone to irritation.
There are several massage methods, but with any technology, you must first perform all manipulations completely with one breast and then move on to the other.
Breast massage with water
The hydromassage can be done during the bath every day. Having adjusted the pressure so that the water hits hard, you need to massage the chest in a circle for 2-3 minutes on each side. The water should be comfortable, but not too hot.
Later, you can complicate the procedure by making the shower contrast. In order not to cool down, it is necessary to gradually increase the time of exposure to cold water: first 10 seconds with a minute interval, then 20, 30 and 60 seconds, respectively.
Corrective breast massage
The breast remodeling massage is performed with the help of the hands, so it is called a manual. It acts on both the muscles and the skin, thus helping to make the bust more round and toned.
The following manipulations are performed during the massage:
- three fingers (middle, index and ring) should be directed around the circumference of the chest, gradually increasing the pressure;
- slide your fingers from the nipples to the upper part of the chest;
- pinch the breast, trying not to pull the skin, but to act on the soft tissues.
- taking the chest with one hand, the other should pat it lightly;
This simple breast enhancement massage includes all the steps of a classic massage: caressing, pinching and touching. In this case, the procedure takes no more than 5 to 7 minutes.
Vacuum breast massage
Vacuum massage increases the size of the bust in a few minutes, but the effect wears off quickly. For the procedure, a special device is needed, in which each breast is placed separately, and which allows, using a pump to pump air, to create negative pressure, which improves blood supply.
Japanese breast massage
Japanese or acupressure massage promises to make the shapes more curvilinear, acting on biological active points, which are located:
- on both sides of the thyroid gland;
- above the shoulder blades;
- above the clavicles.
Points must be pressed for 5 to 7 seconds with an interval of 20 seconds. The total duration of the procedure is 5 minutes.
Masks for breast augmentation
