According to statistics, the overwhelming majority of women are dissatisfied with the size of their breasts. Without intervention, the bust can increase during pregnancy, with weight gain, before menstruation. In other cases, to correct the shape, you will have to resort to methods that have proven effective: surgery, massage, sports, cosmetology.
In order to choose an effective and safe way to enlarge the mammary glands, it is necessary to take into account their initial state, the planned transformation result, the general health of the patient.
Techniques for breast augmentation surgery
Breast augmentation with implants is characterized by access to the pocket where the silicone prosthesis will be located.
In most cases, the doctor will cut the tissue around the circumference of the nipple. This is due to the fact that the scar will be invisible on the areola, and a reduction in the diameter of the nipple is required for almost all patients who decide on plastic surgery.
Access through the armpit or the area around the navel is used less often, since this technique is much more complicated and requires long-term rehabilitation.
The method of performing the operation may differ in the location of the implant: under the gland, under the muscle or a combined method.
Predicted outcome of breast augmentation with implants
As a result of the operation with the use of silicone prostheses, it is possible to enlarge the bust by several sizes. But in order to assess how harmonious the new forms will be, 3D modeling is used - visualization in a graphics program into which the patient's photographs are loaded.
Almost 95% of women who have undergone mammoplasty are satisfied with the result, in contrast to statistics on another popular operation - rhinoplasty, where the number of repeated visits to the surgeon is high.
Types of implants
Implants are distinguished by their shape:
- anatomical, teardrop-shaped.
The choice is made by the patient based on aesthetic preferences and body type. Anatomical prostheses look natural; after the tissue has healed, the surgeon's intervention will not be noticeable. But round implants do not lose their shape, even several decades after the operation. To prevent the migration of artificial breasts, you should choose prostheses with textured rather than smooth surface.
May also differ in the composition of the implant filler:
Saline filled prostheses are soft to the touch and have the most affordable price. Gel and silicone make the implants firm and elastic. Dentures filled with gel are not always rigid: there are three degrees of density:
- soft, which lose their shape faster than others, but are indistinguishable from the mammary glands;
- firm, retaining its shape for a long time;
- soft touch, which is a compromise between hard and soft.
To select an implant, the surgeon should describe in detail what result he wants to see after the operation and whether the bust should look natural.
With fluctuations in body weight, lactation, or with an initially large breast size, ptosis inevitably develops: the bust sags, looks unfilled. In this case, it is required to excise excess tissue in order to restore a beautiful shape. In this case, prostheses may not be used, since the breast visually looks more voluminous after the operation.
The method of surgery depends on how severe the ptosis is. With a slight lift, periareolar surgery is usually used, in which the surgeon makes two incisions: along the contour of the areola of the nipple and above. The excess tissue flap is excised, and the edges of the two incisions are sutured.
If the patient's breasts are more deformed in the upper half, and the nipples are directed downward, a crescent cut method is used, when the nipple is brought up in the same way as for periareolar mastopexy.
For significant ptosis, an anchor lift is used, in which an anchor-shaped incision is made, the top point of which starts from the nipple and the bottom line runs horizontally along the breast crease.
Endoscopic Breast Augmentation
Endoscopy differs from the usual operation by the use of special equipment that allows you to make an incision no more than 4 cm long to insert the prosthesis from a point remote from the chest. The surgeon can observe the process of placing the implant under the muscles on a screen, where the image from a camera-equipped endoscope is broadcast.
This method of surgical intervention is safe, while no one can guess about the unnaturalness of the breast, since there will be no signs of intervention on the bust.
Breast augmentation in the salon
If you plan to increase your bust by no more than 1 size, you can resort to cosmetic procedures that stimulate blood circulation and strengthen the skin.
During myostimulation, there is an effect of current discharges on the pectoral muscles. The mammary glands do not increase in size, but the muscles will become bulky. A similar effect can be achieved with the help of physical exercises, but sports, in contrast to the course of myostimulation, have many contraindications.
Microcurrents, like myostimulation, are a procedure in which an electric current is applied. But in this case, it does not affect the muscles, but the skin. Improving local metabolism affects the reduction of collagen fibers, which are responsible for skin firmness.
Laser helps to firm the skin and get rid of minor ptosis. In some clinics, the procedure is called laser rejuvenation: by strengthening the breast frame, you can make it more voluminous and elastic, but it will not be possible to increase the size of the bust in this way.
Mesotherapy or biorevitalization
Injection cosmetology is one of the most effective ways to improve skin condition. Biorevitalization and mesotherapy allow you to inject hyaluronic acid and vitamin complexes to the desired depth of the skin. And the injections themselves provoke an accelerated production of elastin and collagen for the regeneration of the skin damaged by the needle.
Treatments aimed at improving skin condition cannot enlarge breasts. But you can introduce fillers into the bust, which will make the forms lush for up to six months.
Before breast augmentation with contour plasty, you need to make sure that there are no contraindications:
- decreased blood viscosity;
- infection in the body;
- allergies or autoimmune diseases.
How to enlarge breasts using folk methods?
Numerous alternative methods of breast enlargement are usually ineffective. Such methods of therapy as massage, drugs, sports and special cosmetics have a proven clinical effect, while decoctions, infusions and lotions do not in any way affect the size of the mammary glands and muscles.
Breast enlargement massage
Massage is an effective method for enlarging breasts without surgery or injections. It helps improve local blood circulation, strengthen muscles and tighten skin. Immediately after the procedure, the effect of a slight breast augmentation occurs,, but it disappears after a few hours.
Contraindications for massage are:
- sensitive skin prone to irritation.
There are several massage methods, but with any technology, you must first completely carry out all the manipulations with one breast, and only then move on to the other.
Water massage of the breast
Hydromassage can be done while showering every day. Having adjusted the pressure so that the water gushes with force, you need to massage the chest in a circle for 2-3 minutes on each side. The water should be comfortable, but not too hot.
Subsequently, you can complicate the procedure by making the shower contrast. In order not to catch a cold, you need to gradually increase the exposure time to cold water: first 10 seconds with a minute break, then 20, 30 and 60 seconds, respectively.
Corrective breast massage
Breast reshaping massage is performed with the help of hands, therefore it is otherwise called manual. It works on both the muscles and the skin, thereby helping to make the bust more round and toned.
The following manipulations are performed during the massage:
- three fingers (middle, index and ring) should be driven around the circumference of the chest, gradually increasing the pressure;
- slide your fingers from the nipples to the top of the chest;
- pinch the breast, trying not to pull the skin, but to act on the soft tissues.
- taking the chest in one hand, the other should gently pat on it;
This simple breast enlargement massage includes all the steps of a classic massage: stroking, pinching and tapping. In this case, the procedure does not take more than 5-7 minutes.
Vacuum breast massage
Vacuum massage increases the size of the bust in a few minutes, but the effect quickly disappears. For the procedure, a special device is needed, in which each breast is placed separately, and which allows, using a pump for pumping air, to create negative pressure, which improves blood supply.
Japanese breast massage
Japanese or acupressure massage promises to make the forms more curvaceous by acting on biological active points that are located:
- on both sides of the thyroid gland;
- above the shoulder blades;
- above the collarbones.
The points must be pressed for 5-7 seconds with a break of 20 seconds. The total duration of the procedure is 5 minutes.
Masks for breast enlargement
Traditional medicine offers several ways to enlarge breasts without special devices and drugs.
- A bag of yeast should be diluted in warm water to the consistency of sour cream, applied to the bust for 15 minutes, rinsed with water.
