It's needless to ask what the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in the world is. It's breast augmentation, of course. Thousands of women have had augmentation mammoplasty in 2018. It is estimated that 9 percent of women will get breast implants in the course of their lives. The likelihood of encountering the implants in a younger woman is extremely low. Older women are the ones who have breast augmentation.

Why is there a surge of mature patients? Probably because they need it. When they get to a certain age, women experience age-related issues like sagging, especially if they have children and have been overweight in the past. Augmentation mammoplasty is a surgical procedure that can be performed at any age and the best of surgeons have experience dealing with all kinds of patients. Those who decide to go from an A-cup to a C-cup or D-cup make a decision that changes their lives for the better.

There are many variations concerning pre-operative planning, surgical management, and post-operative care. Technology helps facilitate change. So, what is hot in breast augmentation this year? There is no way of knowing if these trends will stick around for the following year. What is sure is that these directions are very popular at the time being. Here are the breast augmentation trends that are hot right now.


Breast implants that give the most natural look

It's not hard for people to tell if someone has breast implants. A look is enough to determine whether or not a pair of boobs is natural. What gives away that the breasts aren't natural? The fact that they sit too high on the chest, for example. The top of the breasts is supposed to start where the armpits are. When the implants are sitting too high, it's quite obvious that something isn't right. Naturally, there are other signs that give away breast augmentation.

Nowadays, breast implants look a lot more natural. It's difficult if not impossible for others to tell that a person has undergone surgery. Plastic surgeons are great at what they do and, with time, they have perfected their technique. They had no choice considering that more and more women ask for natural looking prosthesis. Women want to make changes in the way they look, but they don't want the entire world to know that. Consequently, they don't ask for a larger cup size, such as DD. They prefer B and C breasts due to the fact that they are easier to implant and they are more comfortable.

As mentioned earlier, technology has helped plastic surgery advance. Treatments are more affordable and less invasive. One innovation that is worth talking about is gummy bear implants. These implants feature a silicone shell and a silicone gel filling. As opposed to other prostheses of the kind, they retain their shape and are pleasant to the touch. If the implants happen to rupture or leak, then the gel doesn't get inside the body. Gummy bear implants are mostly performed in the United States, yet they have been gracing the breasts of Canada as well. Those who are looking for an aesthetically pleasing breast implant will be happy to know that they have the gummy bear option.


Breast augmentation and lift at the same time

Breast augmentation by Dr. Beber can and will add natural-looking volume and fullness. Plastic surgeons specializing in this kind of medical procedure often see numbers of patients looking forward to improving their appearance. Not only do they want to achieve great results with breast implants, but also they desire a lift to adjust the skin envelope. A breast augmentation and lift can be done at the same time. An ever-increasing number of women choose to have these two surgical procedures carried out at the same time because it's less stressful. Breast augmentation leaves scars. Even if they aren't visible, women don't feel comfortable in their skin. The breast lift procedure provides immediate results, supporting the newly shaped breasts.

It's important to understand that a lift helps achieve the most optimal shape and it's one of the most challenging procedures. In the beginning, it was performed in a single stage. That isn't the case anymore. At present, the lift is performed and a certain amount of time passes until the augmentation is realized. Staging the procedure isn't a good thing due to the fact that it increases the complexity for the patient. The result is that many plastic surgeons perform the interventions at the same time. Patients who are considering the idea of having breast augmentation and lift at the same time need to ask questions during the cosmetic consultation.


Fast recovery

As a rule, recovery from breast augmentation surgery takes somewhere between 4 and 6 weeks. The women of today want advanced implants, but they also want to get out of the hospital as fast as possible. Breast augmentation is a major type of surgery, despite the fact that it's minimally invasive. Nevertheless, if the plastic surgeon is experienced enough, they can reduce post-operative healing, bleeding, pain, and inflammation. The point is that it's possible to achieve faster recovery. A professional may not be necessary able to provide evidence of fast recovery. The best that they can do is inform the patient about the outcome of the surgical procedure and support them during their time of need.

Attention needs to be paid to the fact that there are women who experience better results. The reason why they make a quick recovery is that they are in good health and know how to take care of themselves. These women don't need to take much time off work and are able to make a full recovery. Before leaving home, every patient receives post-operative instructions and is required to come for a follow-up. The experience can vary greatly from individual to individual, which is understandable, taking into account the fact that every woman is different.

Breast augmentation has been and always will be popular. So, there will be no changes in this respect. The New Year will no doubt come with many changes and we can only hope for the better.
