Breast augmentation in Temecula is more common than you might think. Here and across the country, breast augmentation remains at the top of the charts in popularity. According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons®, 307,000 breast augmentation procedures were performed in the United States in 2011 – a 4% increase from 2010. Breast augmentation was performed more often than rhinoplasty, liposuction, eyelid surgery or facelift, making it the number #1 cosmetic surgery in America.
As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I have the pleasure of helping patients understand the advancements in procedural technology for breast augmentation. There are several reasons why this procedure is becoming so popular. Perhaps most notably, breast implant materials are safer and more lifelike than ever before.
Women can now choose from a wide variety of implant sizes, shapes, textures and styles for a truly customized and natural look. And since both saline and silicone gel implants are approved by the FDA, women can rest assured that their implants meet high standards for safety.
Surgical techniques for breast augmentation have also improved. Breast implants can now be placed in such a way as to reduce downtime, minimize scarring and decrease the risk of complications. This makes it safer and more convenient for women to enhance their breasts. Today, it is not uncommon for women to return to work within just a few days of their surgery.
There’s no doubt that breast augmentation techniques will continue to evolve during the coming years. By staying current with the newest advances in breast augmentation and incorporating these innovations into my practice, I am able to provide safer and more satisfying results.
