What Is Breast Augmentation?

At Hyde Park Cosmetic Surgery Center, we are committed to providing our patients with the procedure or procedures that best meet their needs for creating the appearance that they desire. One of the ways we do this is through breast augmentation. Simply put, breast augmentation in Tampa is performed to enhance the fullness of the breasts that was either lost (due to such things as weight loss or pregnancy) or not ever present. This procedure enhances breast size but does not reverse sagging breasts. A breast lift, which will be discussed separately, might be an additional procedure that you consider to combat drooping breasts.

As breast augmentation in Tampa is a procedure that is expected to last for a long period of time, careful consideration should be taken when choosing the type, shape, and size of the implant. There are two types of implants that can be used. One is a saline implant that is filled with sterile salt water. This type does not have the exact feel of natural breast tissue, however, should the shell leak, the salt water is removed naturally by the body. Silicone implants are filled with a gel that acts in much the same way as natural breast tissue. These types of implants should be monitored as directed to ensure that the gel has not leaked from the shell as it will not be absorbed and removed from the body naturally. Your surgeon can assist you in determining which implant is right for your body and situation.

One of the major benefits of undergoing breast augmentation in Tampa is elevated self-confidence. Whether there is a natural difference in the size of each breast, a need for reconstruction after illness or injury, or simply a feeling that breast size is too small, breast augmentation can help eliminate those feelings of inadequacy.
