Breast augmentation with hyaluronic acid is now considered the safest method. Before the advent of this method, mammoplasty was used.
The operation was performed on the breast into which the implants were placed. The breast was enlarged by several sizes but looked unnatural.
At the same time, no one could give a complete guarantee that the operation would go smoothly. The advent of this method of breast augmentation puts women at lower risk.
How are breasts enlarged with hyaluronic acid?
Many have heard of hyaluronic acid. Someone knows it as the main component of the synovial fluid, which provides the lubrication of the articular cartilage in the connective tissue, and someone has heard it from the world of cosmetology.
In particular, it has become known to maintain the firmness and elasticity of the skin. How does this happen?
Hyaluronic acid has the unique ability to attract and store water like a sponge and to add volume and moisture to the tissue.
It is thanks to this property that this polysaccharide is successfully used in plastic surgery for breast enlargement.
This technique allows you to achieve the breast size you want without resorting to surgery.
Breast enlargement takes place through gel injections, namely dermal fillers based on hyaluronic acid.
Since the molecules of this polysaccharide are large and retain a lot of water, it resembles a thick gel in consistency. Approx. 300 ml of gel are required for one-size-fits-all breast enlargement.
How is the procedure carried out? The procedure is painful and is therefore performed under local anesthesia. Before the operation, all the necessary tests are carried out and the day of the operation is determined.
Non-surgical breast augmentation takes approximately 40 minutes. The drug is injected into the chest using a cannula.
This is a special tube that resembles a spring and replaces a needle. Punctures, where cosmetic sutures are made, remain at the injection site.
The breast is given exactly the shape the patient wants it to be. It is very important that the procedure is performed by an experienced specialist, as not all doctors can properly insert the gel into the breast.
After the procedure is over, on days 2 and 3 you will experience uncomfortable pain and burning sensation in the mammary gland area. Reddening of the breast skin, bruises and itching are also possible. All of these symptoms will soon go away.
The patient should not expose the upper body to any physical activity within 1 month. Both excessive heat and cold are contraindicated.
You cannot pressurize the mammary gland, so massage or sleep on it, as the gel can shift and deform the breast.
It is recommended to wear compression garments to support the chest. The recovery period depends on the age of the patient, the quality of the epidermis, the amount of gel injected and the lifestyle.
Duration of action
Fillers are divided into absorbable and non-absorbable. For breast enlargement, injections of the first type are mainly used because they are based on hyaluronic acid, which dissolves quickly.
The effect of its influence is temporary - from 6 months to a year. Non-absorbable injections are dangerous with the development of various complications, so they are practically not used.
Breast augmentation with botox is often confused with dermal fillers. The difference is that botox supplements are harmful to the body as they contain the botulism toxin.
A gel with hyaluronic acid is a filler that increases tissue volume.
What types of breast fillers are used?
There are many different hyaluronic acid fillers available for breast enlargement.
Since they differ from each other in their characteristics, a specialist should choose them based on the characteristics of the patient's skin and mammary glands.
There is one more point to consider: the gel with hyaluronic acid has an antidote. It's a special enzyme called hyaluronidase. He is able to destroy the unsuccessful result.
Contraindications and Complications
Does hyaluronic acid breast augmentation have any contraindications? There are a number of cases when it is impossible to use a gel for breast enlargement.
Contraindications are all benign and malignant neoplasms of the breast.
Even if a woman is planning a pregnancy, such operations are not performed, since the unabsorbed remnants of the gel can squeeze the milk ducts during breastfeeding. In autoimmune diseases, interventions in the mammary gland are contraindicated.
When doing an ultrasound scan of the mammary glands or an X-ray, cysts are no different from the accumulation of fillers and are often confused.
This makes it difficult to examine the organ for possible neoplasms. Palpation also makes diagnosis difficult.
If the breasts become infected, surgery and antibiotics will be needed for treatment.
For the sake of perfection, many women risk their health and do not pay attention to contraindications.
The effect after the introduction of hyaluronic acid is undeniable and the result is tangible: the breast becomes elastic and plump, the skin much younger.
However, this result is temporary, so you will need to repeat the process. Such interventions can have negative consequences.
Advantages and disadvantages of the procedure
This method is not suitable for women with organ prolapse (ptosis). This procedure will only make the problem worse.
Hyaluronic acid dissolves over time, but no procedures related to exposure to the mammary glands should be used beforehand.
The fact that this procedure hardly damages the mammary gland is a great advantage, but after the drug is administered in the mammary glands, soft tissues, vessels and ducts are compressed due to the swelling of hyaluronic acid.
The drug, which occupies a certain place in the chest, acts on nearby tissues.
Why is breast augmentation with hyaluronic acid banned in France? This method does not present any particular risks or dangers to health.
But a precautionary decision was made in this country to ban it, as the diagnosis of malignant tumors is very complicated after the introduction of hyaluronic acid.
