Another of the most popular breast augmentation techniques is known as the Inferior Follicular Augmentation. This technique involves inserting two or three implants behind the breast tissue. Unlike in the Inferior Pedicle Augmentation, which is only performed on younger women, the Inferior Follicular Augmentation is generally recommended for women who are in their middle ages or older. In this case, the implants may be placed close to the armpits. Unlike the Inferior Pedicle Augmentation, however, cosmetic surgeons are not likely to suggest this procedure to women who have large breasts, as this procedure may lead to excessive scarring.
One of the most commonly used techniques when it comes to breast augmentation techniques is the Small Incision Breast Augmentation. This technique involves inserting an implant behind the breast tissue in such a way that the surgeon can use a small incision and create enough room for him or her to perform the operation. A small incision is much better than a large one, especially if the implants are positioned in areas where scars are less noticeable. However, many patients also prefer to undergo this procedure under the supervision of a general practitioner because small incisions tend to bleed and create more infections than larger incisions.
Finally, the last surgical technique we are going to discuss is called the Adopexy. Like the Inferior Pedicle Augmentation, this procedure is performed in order to expand the breast through creating a new pit. The difference lies in the size of the implant used. In addition to being a less invasive procedure, it is also less risky and can be performed on patients with very good skin quality.
There are also some breast augmentation techniques that may not require hormone therapy or implants. For example, the Thermo Inflammatory Stress Augmentation, which uses heat and cold to reduce swelling and pain. A breast augmentation procedure using this method has been shown to give the same results as hormone therapy, but is much safer. It is not uncommon for women who undergo the Thermo Inflammatory Stress Augmentation to still be able to breast feed, so women who choose to use this technique should not worry about hormone therapy either.
Women who have chosen silicone implants over other methods have also a choice for incision placement. Depending on their goals for augmentation, some choose to have the incision placed below the pectoral muscle. Others choose to have the incision placed above the muscle, but beneath the skin fold. Still others choose to have the incision placed inside the natural crease under the breast. Breast augmentation patients choose the incision placements that best meet their goals for enhancement.
