Even though an enhanced appearance is no doubt important for women who choose breast enlargement, Dr. Osmanoglu thinks the purely cosmetic benefits of breast augmentation only tell part of the story. He believes the change should enhance the satisfaction patients feel in their lives. Dr. Osmanoglu appreciates the power of cosmetic surgery to transform both your look and your life.
For most women, their breasts are closely linked to their sense of beauty, femininity and sensuality, so feeling dissatisfied with breast size can have a significant impact on confidence level. With breast augmentation, women can also restore lost volume, achieve a better sense of proportion, and improve clothing fit.
One or more of the following feelings or conditions may indicate that you are a good candidate for breast implants:
– You have a sense of low self-esteem that your breasts are too small
– Apparel that fit well around your hips is often too large at the bustline
– You feel self-conscious wearing form-fitting clothing or a swimsuit
– Your breasts have decreased in size and lost their firmness after having children
– Fluctuation in weight has changed the size and shape of your breasts
– Asymmetry exists where one of your breasts is noticeably smaller than the other
In any case, at our practice at Esthe-Line, breast augmentation is recommended for women who feel that larger breasts will improve their self image, and who have chosen surgery to fulfill their own wishes, not to meet someone else’s expectations.
The naturalness and youthful firmness of the results of autologous stem cell breast augmentation make them impressive. Because the volume increase is achieved with autologous fat tissue rather than artificial foreign materials, the augmented breast feels completely natural and looks “genuine” in any body position, whether at rest or in motion. Furthermore, the local rejuvenating effect of the stem cells gives the breasts a more youthful, firmer, more taut appearance.
Procedure: Breast augmentation with stem cell-enriched autologous fat is an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia. General anesthesia and a hospital stay are not necessary. The necessary steps (liposuction, enrichment of the autologous fat with stem cells, implantation in the breast) take a total of ca. 2 to 4 hours. The second step is omitted in breast augmentation with standard lipotransfer. The patient is discharged on the same day of the procedure. Aftercare is minimal compared to breast augmentation with silicone implants.
Saline breast implants: Solid silicone rubber outer shell filled with sterile salt water. Saline implants are filled at the time of surgery; thus may be inserted via a smaller incision than silicone implants. Saline implants allow for minor modifications in implant size at the time of the operation. Saline is harmlessly absorbed by the body in the case of implant rupture is an important factor for some women.
Silicone filled breast implants: Solid silicone rubber outer shell filled with cohesive silicone gel. Silicone is a naturally occurring element found in sand, quartz and rock. Silicone can be manufactured in a variety of ways, including oils, gels and solids. Silicone products have been shown to be bio-compatible, reliable, flexible and easy to sterilize. All silicone breast implants are pre-filled and may require a longer incision for implant placement. Patients tend to think that silicone implants feel more natural.
