According to statistics, the vast majority of women are dissatisfied with the size of their breasts. Without intervention, the breast may gain weight with pre-menstrual weight gain during pregnancy. In other cases, to correct the shape, you need to resort to methods that have been proven to be effective: surgery, massage, sports, cosmetology.
To choose an effective and safe way to enlarge the mammary glands, it is necessary to take into account their initial condition, the planned outcome of the transformation and the general health of the patient.
Techniques for breast augmentation
Breast augmentation with implants is characterized by the access to the pocket in which the silicone prosthesis is located.
In most cases, the doctor will cut tissue around the circumference of the nipple. This is due to the fact that the scar on the areola is invisible and almost all patients who choose plastic surgery require a reduction in the diameter of the nipple.
Access through the armpit or the area around the navel is used less often as this technique is much more complicated and requires long-term rehabilitation.
The method of performing the operation can differ in the position of the implant: under the gland, under the muscle or a combined method.
The predicted outcome of breast augmentation with implants
The operation with silicone prostheses can enlarge the breast by several sizes. To judge how harmonious the new shapes will be, 3D modeling is used - visualization in a graphics program into which the patient's photos are loaded.
Almost 95% of women who have had a mammoplasty are happy with the result, unlike statistics on another popular surgery - nose job, which has a high number of repeat visits to the surgeon.
Implants differ in their shape:
- anatomical, teardrop-shaped.
The choice is made by the patient based on aesthetic preferences and body type. Anatomical prostheses look natural. After the tissue has healed, the surgeon's intervention can no longer be seen. But round implants do not lose their shape even a few decades after surgery. To prevent the migration of artificial breasts, you should choose prostheses with a structured instead of a smooth surface.
Can also differ in the composition of the implant filler:
- saline solution.
Prostheses filled with saline solution are soft to the touch and are reasonably priced. Gel and silicone make the implants firm and elastic. Prostheses filled with gel are not always rigid: There are three degrees of density:
- soft, which lose their shape faster than others, but cannot be distinguished from the mammary glands;
- firm, keeps its shape for a long time;
- Soft Touch, a compromise between hard and soft.
In order to select an implant, the surgeon should describe in detail what result he would like to see after the operation and whether the breast should look natural.
With fluctuations in body weight, lactation or an initially large breast size, ptosis inevitably develops: the breast sags and looks unfilled. In this case, excess tissue must be cut out to restore a beautiful shape. In this case, prostheses must not be used, as the breast looks visually more voluminous after the operation.
The method of operation depends on how severe the ptosis is. With a light lift, periareolar surgery is usually performed in which the surgeon makes two cuts: along the contour of the areola of the nipple and above. The excess flap of tissue is cut out and the edges of the two incisions are sewn.
If the patient's breasts are more deformed in the upper half and the nipples are pointing downwards, a crescent 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 anchor-shaped incision is made with the upper point starting from the nipple and the lower line running horizontally along the breast fold.
Endoscopic breast augmentation
Endoscopy differs from the usual operation in the use of special devices that allow you to make an incision no more than 4 cm in length to insert the prosthesis from a point away from the breast. The surgeon can observe the process of placing the implant under the muscles on a screen on which the image of an endoscope equipped with a camera is transmitted.
This method of surgical intervention is safe, while no one can guess the unnatural nature of the breast, as there are no signs of breast intervention.
Breast augmentation in the salon
If you plan on increasing your breast by no more than one size, you can resort to cosmetic procedures that stimulate blood circulation and strengthen the skin.
During myostimulation, current discharges affect the chest muscles. The mammary glands do not increase, but the muscles become bulky. A similar effect can be achieved with the help of physical exercise, but sports, unlike the course of myostimulation, have many contraindications.
Like myostimulation, microcurrents are a process in which electrical current is applied. In this case, however, it is the skin and not the muscles that are affected. The improvement in local metabolism has the effect of reducing collagen fibers, which are responsible for skin firmness.
Laser helps tighten the skin and get rid of minor ptosis. In some clinics, the procedure is called laser rejuvenation: by strengthening the chest frame, you can make it more voluminous and elastic, but it is not possible to increase the size of the breast in this way.
Mesotherapy or biorevitalization
Injection cosmetics are one of the most effective methods of improving the condition of the skin. Biorevitalization and mesotherapy allow you to inject hyaluronic acid and vitamin complexes into the desired skin depth. And the injections themselves provoke an accelerated production of elastin and collagen for the regeneration of the skin damaged by the needle.
Treatments to improve the condition of the skin cannot enlarge the breasts. However, you can introduce fillers into the breast, which will make the shapes luscious for up to six months.
Before breast augmentation with contour plastic surgery, you must ensure that there are no contraindications:
- decreased blood viscosity;
- infection in the body;
- allergies or autoimmune diseases.
How to enlarge breasts using folk methods
Numerous alternative breast enlargement methods are usually ineffective. Therapy methods such as massage, medication, exercise, 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.
Breast enlargement massage
Massage is an effective method of enlarging the breasts without surgery or injections. It helps improve local blood circulation, strengthen muscles, and tone the skin. Immediately after the procedure, the effect of a slight breast enlargement occurs,, but this disappears after a few hours.
Contraindications for a massage are:
- sensitive skin that is prone to irritation.
There are several methods of massage, but any technology requires that you first fully perform all the manipulations with one breast, and only then move on to the other.
Breast water massage
Hydromassage can be done every day in the shower. After adjusting the pressure so that the water gushes with force, 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.
You can then complicate the process by adjusting the shower contrast. In order not to catch a cold, you have to gradually increase the exposure time compared to cold water: first 10 seconds with a break of one minute, then 20, 30 or 60 seconds.
Corrective breast massage
The breast reshaping massage is performed with the help of the hands and is therefore also referred to as manual. It acts on both the muscles and the skin, helping to make the chest rounder and firmer.
The following manipulations are carried out during the massage:
- Three fingers (middle, index finger and ring) should be run around the chest to gradually increase the pressure.
- Slide your fingers from the nipples up onto your chest.
- pinch your chest and try not to pull the skin, but to act on the soft tissues.
- takes the breast in one hand and the other should tap it gently;
This simple breast enlargement massage includes all the steps of a classic massage: stroking, pinching and tapping. In this case, the process will take no more than 5-7 minutes.
Vacuum breast massage
The vacuum massage enlarges the breast in a few minutes, but the effect quickly disappears. The procedure requires special equipment that places each breast separately and that allows a pump to be used to pump air to create a negative pressure, thereby improving blood supply.
Japanese breast massage
Japanese or acupressure massage promises to make the shapes more curvy by acting on biologically active points that are:
- on both sides of the thyroid gland;
- over the shoulder blades;
