Cosmetic breast surgery is being performed on thousands of women each year and the numbers appear to be increasing. It is also important to note that breast surgery is not only for the female.

Men who have conditions such as gynecomastia (breast enlargement) also frequently seek the aid of a plastic surgeon to remove the excess breast. Just like their female counterparts, male breast surgery has seen an almost 150% increase over the past 5 years alone. A few of the men who have undergone transgender surgery also undergo some type of breast augmentation procedure.

Breast augmentation surgery is being done for several reasons:

- some women have had cancer surgery and want the breast reconstructed

- some want the breasts to be symmetrical

- some just want to improve their self confidence and feel better about themselves

Despite the fact that breast augmentation surgery is standardized technically, no two women have the same result. Some women only want minor changes in their breast and others want a radical change in their buxom size.

Breast augmentation is currently being performed with a variety of implants. Nevertheless, each implant requires general anesthesia. The surgery can take anywhere from 1-3 hours. The excess skin, tissue and fat are removed and your nipple is relocated for cosmetic purposes. Your surgeon may use plastic tubes to drain away the blood from the breast. These drainage tubes are typically removed anywhere from 4-10 days after the procedure. Your breasts will be wrapped in a tight compressive garment and you may be required to wear a surgical bra.

The implants are inserted by a couple of small skin incisions which are normally not readily visible to the naked eye. Once the implants are in place, the incisions are closed.

The success of breast augmentation depends on the type of implant, site of skin incision and where the implant has been placed

Every single breast implant available today has a pouch made from a silicone shell. This pouch is then filled with either saline or a silicone gel. Even though millions of women have had silicone implants over the past 40 years, the last decade has been mired into a controversy regarding the silicone.

A few years, ago, the FDA again allowed the use of silicone in implants in certain situations.
