The contribution of the breast to a woman's body shape and self-image has changed greatly over the years and varies amongst different cultures. At present, a fuller breasted body is desired by many women in America. Because an individual's body build is largely determined by genetics, women may not be able to achieve this look through diet and physical exercise. In addition, the effects of pregnancy on a woman's breasts are usually not favorable, often causing sagging and loss of breast volume. Today, through modern biomaterials technology, it is now possible to safely and reliably alter the shape of a woman's body. Some with small, underdeveloped, asymmetrical, or sagging breasts may choose to undergo breast augmentation. This operation is very effective at improving the size and shape of the breast by implanting specially designed materials beneath the breast or chest wall muscles.
The most important decision that any woman makes about breast augmentation is the type of breast implant she chooses. Options include the base materials of saline and several types of silicone gel (cohesive gel, gummy bear breast implants). All of these breast implant materials will do an excellent job of enlarging the breast and all are FDA approved. But there are subtle differences between these material types that can affect how they feel, what incision is needed for their placement, how long they will last, how they will eventually fail (if they do) and their costs. It is important that each patient be aware of these breast implant differences so they can make the best long-term choice.
In addition to performing breast augmentation and breast reduction, Dr. Eppley also helps breast lift patients reverse the signs of aging at his modern plastic surgery Indianapolis, Indiana facility. He also combines these procedures for his Indianapolis mommy makeover surgery patients. Please visit these pages to learn more about these procedures.
