But what is plastic surgery?

Well, plastic surgery refers to any type of surgery performed to restructure or alter the form or characteristics of a body part.

There are two types of plastic surgery: Cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.

  1. Reconstructive surgery: It is a treatment used to improve dysfunctional body parts. While it may also change the individual’s appearance, it is initiated primarily to restore function and the appearance is not in the consideration.
  2. Cosmetic surgery. It is for an individual who wants to change the physical appearance of a feature of their body. Although in many cases there is nothing wrong with their physical appearance, they may still want to change it, like alter the size of their breasts or the shape of the nose. A person may also use cosmetic surgery to change mutilated body parts and give them a more normal appearance, like scar removal.

Surgeries for breasts fall under both cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries.


Over time, women’s breasts can lose their form. This commonly occurs after life events such as pregnancy or weight loss, and even age.

When breasts appear less full, misshapen or lopsided, a person’s self-esteem and confidence can be affected. Breast augmentation, sometimes breast enlargement, is an option to make breasts look more shapely and youthful. It can also be a reconstructive option after a mastectomy.

Mastectomy is the process in which the surgeon removes the breast tissue either due to or in the prevention of breast cancer.

Implants used in breast augmentation

It performed by surgically inserting implants to improve breast symmetry and appearance. Implants can be either saline or silicone.

Silicone Implants

Silicone implants are silicone discs filled with silicone gel. They’re filled prior to the surgery and implanted. The benefit of silicone is that it feels more like real breast tissue.

A downside to silicone implants is if they rupture, there is a greater risk for more extensive intervention. Since silicone isn’t a natural substance, the body doesn’t readily absorb it. No real health issues are linked with a ruptured silicone implant. But the silicone can leak out around the implant and into the breast, eventually altering the shape.

Once it ruptures, a silicone implant also doesn’t just deflate. When this happens, it’s known as a silent rupture. Silicone implants also usually cost more than saline. You must be at least 22 years old to get them.

Gummy Bear Silicone Implants are also available for a more natural looking breast augmentation.

Saline Implants

The exterior of the saline implant is composed of silicone. But it’s filled with sterilized salt water. When a woman opts for saline implants, the disc will be implanted empty. Then, once it’s in place, it will be filled to the desired size.

If a saline implant ruptures, it will deflate, and the salt water will simply be absorbed into your body. However, additional surgery will be needed to remove the ruptured disc, and a new one can be inserted.  You must be at least 18 years old if you’re looking at getting saline implants.


When breasts are disproportionately large for your body size, their size and weight can cause physical difficulties such as the neck, back or even shoulder pain.

Breast reduction surgery is performed more often to relieve the physical difficulties associated with very large breasts. Women are the most common recipients of the surgery. But even men with abnormally large breasts, gynecomastia, may also be candidates for breast reduction surgery.

What is Breast Reduction procedure?

During a typical breast reduction surgery, an incision is made around the nipple and extended inferiorly. Different techniques may be used based on your breasts and desired outcome. From there, breast tissue, the extra skin, and fat will be removed. This usually results in the whole breast being raised into a smaller and more youthful shape.


Over time, weight changes, breastfeeding, and age can cause the breast to become droopy and lifeless, and this can cause significant issues with confidence. If this applies to you, a breast lift might be in order. The procedure may also come into play after the removal of an implant.

What Is a Breast Lift Procedure?

During a typical breast lift surgery, the surgeon moves the areola and nipple to a higher, and more appropriate anatomical position, on the chest, and remove any extra skin or breast tissue. This results in breasts appearing more youthful.

In some cases, a patient may also opt for implants while undergoing breast lift surgery to further enhance the breast’s appearance.

Breast lifts aren’t permanent due to the fact that it will naturally be affected by gravity. Touch-up procedures may be necessary to maintain the desired appearance as you age. Another breast lift may not be necessary. But this will depend on your unique needs.
