Breast augmentation or breast enlargement is one of the most popular plastic procedures in the world and it isn’t just for younger women. Older women who want to restore their youthful appearance and increase their self-confidence can also benefit from breast augmentation in New York.
As women get older they start to notice multiple changes in their bodies. Their clothes do not fit the same. There is more fat and loose skin in places than there used to be. This is because of natural aging and weight fluctuations after multiple pregnancies. The aging factor affects a woman’s breasts no matter how physically fit she may be. Breasts show signs of sagging as the skin ages and loses laxity. The breasts may start to sag and the nipples can start to face downward, creating a deflated look. Breast Augmentation not only changes your physical appearance but has emotional benefits that can help promote a positive lifestyle for the individual.
According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 90,000 women aged 40 and up had cosmetic breast augmentation surgery in 2012. A woman is considered a candidate for breast augmentation if she is physically healthy enough to recover from the procedure. A woman’s skin will also determine if the body will be able to adjust and heal after the body contouring. At K Plastic Surgery, Dr. Sanjiv Kayastha offers his patients a variety of options to improve the shape of their breasts with saline or silicone implants.
Saline breast implants are filled with a sterile saline solution. They can be placed in the breast empty and then filled after, which allows for a smaller incision to be made. The smaller the incision is, the smaller the scar that is left behind. Women 18 and older are available to have the surgery. If the breast implant becomes ruptured or leaks, the solution is absorbed into the body and does not pose a threat to the body’s health.
Silicone gel implants provide a more natural look and feel. The implant is pre-filled with silicone gel. These are made available to women 22 and older. Both options are also made available to patients who opt for breast reconstruction. Implant rupture is rare and new advancements with the silicone gel often prevent it from traveling outside of the breast cavity.
The type and size of the implants used in the procedure will impact the size of the incision. Dr. Kayastha is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has the knowledge and experience to make the incision at the patient’s desired location including the armpit, nipple, or under the crease of the breast. To further enhance the look of sagging breasts, a breast lift can be combined with augmentation to lift the breast tissue and restore your youthful appearance.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, nearly 85,000 people aged 65 and older chose to go under the knife to enhance their physical appearance. Beauty doesn’t have to stop at a specific age and there is no shame in still wanting to look good. Women can get excited to wear that low-cut blouse that they used to wear in their twenties. They can feel sexy again when they put on that strapless dress to go out on dates.
A woman’s confidence will increase after having a breast enhancement, no matter what age. Her breasts will no longer sag and her body will look just as good as she feels. This improved confidence has a positive effect on her own self-image, intimate relationships, and all aspects of life.
