Types of Plastic Surgery
Breast plastic surgery is a cosmetic procedure aimed at improving the appearance of women's breasts. It may involve mastopexy - the removal of fatty tissue from the breast - or augmentation (addition) of breast size through implants or breast-enhancing surgery. Other cosmetic breast plastic surgery procedures comprise breast reduction, removal of excessive skin or fat to make the breast appear larger, enhancement of breast cup size through breast implants or augmentation of one breast with another. Breast plastic surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia in hospital operating theaters.
There are many cosmetic breast surgery clinics in the U.S. Most of them use general anesthesia as a part of the surgical process and patients remain sedated. After breast plastic surgery, recovery is painless and can last between one and three days. Patients need regular support for healing and may be prescribed limited exercise.

Reconstruction Surgery: Breast reconstruction surgery is a reconstructive procedure used to repair or replace a breast after mastectomy. A mastectomy is the medical term used to describe a surgical amputation of one or both breasts. The procedure can be done under local or general anesthesia and is typically covered by health insurance. In some cases, a plastic surgeon allows the patient to have a mammoplasty, which is a reverse of a mastectomy.
Breast reconstruction surgery is performed to repair or replace a breast following mastectomy due to breast cancer. An individual who has experienced a mastectomy is often best suited for this type of procedure. Sometimes family members or friends will want to help a woman who has had breast cancer surgery to restore her former beauty. This is usually done with reconstruction techniques that resemble those used for the production of natural breasts. While some people may still want to retain their realistic expectations, most plastic surgeons believe that most women reach optimum physical condition through use of their realistic expectations.
Augmentation/ Reduction: One of the most popular types of breast plastic surgery is a breast augmentation/reduction. In an augmentation, excess tissue is removed. Typically, a breast tissue or muscle is then implanted in its place. The results can be immediate or occur over time. If the reduction method is used, the size and shape of the implant can be altered before the operation.
Silicone Breast Implants: Most plastic surgeons favor silicone implants because they have a very low incidence of allergic reaction, hardening of the skin, rippling or numbness, and leaching.
Silicone is also known as 'viperatin' and is made from a synthetic form of silicone. Silicone breast implants have many benefits including being firmer, more resistant to tearing and stretching, as well as having a more realistic and natural look than saline implants. Many patients find that silicone breast implants are more comfortable and can help reduce breast creases after surgery. Find out more about boob job newport beach.
