Breast Implant Surgery Trends for 2020
In 2020, breast implant surgery remain one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the world. In fact, every year, more than a quarter of a million women decide breast implant surgery is right from them. And thanks to contemporary trends and technological innovations, getting breast implants is now safer and easier than ever before.
In this article our Lansing, MI area plastic surgeons discuss some of the latest trends in breast implant surgery techniques and technologies that are popular in 2020.
Smaller Breast Implants
While extremely large, obviously surgically-enhanced breast implants were once all the rage, patients today tend to favor a less extreme outcome. Current trends show a much greater interest in breast implants of a more natural shape and size.
The best breast implants are designed to perfectly fit the patient’s proportions. For many women, simply going up to a “B-cup” or “C-cup” gives them the figure they desire, while feeling both attractive and realistic looking.
Breast implants that are too big for the patient’s frame can also result in numerous complications. Capsular contracture, for example, can occur when an implant is too big for the patient’s existing breast skin. Extremely large breast implants can also be uncomfortable, and in some cases can result in back problems.
At Aurora Plastic Surgery in Lansing, MI, Dr. Huettner will help you chose breast implants that perfectly fit your body type, enhancing your silhouette without appearing unrealistic.
Gel Breast Implants
Recent technological developments have provided a number of new materials used in the creation of breast implants. At Aurora Plastic Surgery in the Lansing, MI area, one of the most popular are the “Gummy Bear” breast implants, which are comprised of a soft gel that feels incredibly natural.
Softer and more pliable than previous generations of silicone breast implants, “gummy bear” breast implants do a remarkable job of replicating the feel of natural breast tissue. And, unlike saline breast implants and previous types of “liquid” silicone implants, gel breast implants do not leak when damaged.
Gel breast implants also hold their shape remarkably well, and don’t tend to wrinkle, ripple, or sag like older types of breast implants. In fact, gel breast implants are so “cohesive”, they retain their shape even when cut in half!
Less Downtime after Breast Implant Surgery
While getting breast implants is still considered major surgery, the cutting-edge techniques implemented at our Lansing, MI practice make breast augmentation much less invasive. In this way, our patients face a significantly reduced risk of infection, and enjoy a substantially shorter recovery period.
For example, when administering under-the-muscle breast implants, Lansing MI board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Huettner places the implant within a precisely-created “breast pocket.” In doing so, the patient experiences much less bleeding, bruising, inflammation, and pain – all which help with a speedy, comfortable recovery.
Less Pain Medication after Breast Implant Surgery
Lansing, MI board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Huettner – like countless doctors throughout the country – takes America’s current opioid addition crisis incredibly seriously. To help combat this, Dr. Huettner encourages his patients to select under-the-muscle breast implants; which has a quicker and more comfortable recovery period less dependent on opioid painkillers.
