Breast augmentation is the one of most common and desired plastic surgery procedures today. Also known as breast enhancement or getting a ‘boob job,’ breast augmentation surgery is available to consenting, healthy adults longing for an improvement in their bodies and figures.
While most patients opt to get some type of breast implants during breast augmentation surgeries, the development of fat grafting techniques (retrieving fat from one part of the body and moving it to the breasts) has given women an alternative method when it comes to a desire to increase breast size. In general, fat grafting involves more surgery (the addition of liposuction in order to retrieve the fat), is more expensive, and yields smaller gains and benefits after complete healing. For these reasons, the use of silicone implants is still considered the ‘Gold Standard’ in breast augmentation surgery.
The traditional incision is an inframammary incision, which means an incision is made along the natural crease of the skin created underneath the breast. Despite having a negative reputation in some parts of the West, its cosmetic result can be excellent and it is Dr. Minniti’s preferred incision as well as the most common incision used worldwide.
Dr. Minniti is a native New Yorker who received his training in general and plastic surgery on the east coast in Boston, New York, and Providence. Dr. Minniti came west to practice and is now one of the premier aesthetic plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills. He has more than 21 years of experience in cosmetic plastic surgery, is an innovator of many surgical procedures for which he lectures to other surgeons, and is published in leading plastic surgery journals.
Choosing the best type of breast is an importance decision for any patient undergoing breast augmentation surgery. Today, American patients have more choices in breast implants than in any other time in history. Most patients choose some variation of the silicone gel filled implant that is made by one of the three major manufacturers: Mentor, Natrelle, or Sientra. Additionally, there is a new silicone gel filled device available: the highly cohesive, form stable silicone gel implants that has acquired the name ‘gummy bear breast implants’. While many plastic surgeons have not yet recognized its amazing benefits, are showing promise to be the implant with the least risk of complications overall.Contact Us Today
