Beverly Hills Breast Implant Surgery is the enhancement of a woman's breasts through the placement of silicone breast implants or saline breast implants that enlarge the breast. The most common reasons that women undergo breast enlargement surgery are cosmetic or reconstruction. As per the statistical data available with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 350,000 breast enlargement procedures were performed by plastic and cosmetic surgeons across the United States.
Contrary to a popular belief that beverly hills breast enlargement is a late twentieth century procedure, there are evidences that show that silicone breast implants have been used to enlarge and enhance the shape of women's breasts since 1895. The first known breast implant was attempted by a German doctor, Vincenz Czerny who used a woman's own adipose tissue (from her back) for the purpose, but unfortunately the procedure did not give desirable results. Over the next handful of decades, a number of varying substances were tried as a breast implant substance. Many different substances were tried including ivory, glass balls and ground rubber. The search for the 'right' material finally ended with the discovery of saline and silicone breast implants.
The Saline Breast Implant is more commonly used than the silicone breast implant. It has an exterior case made of solid silicone and is filled with a sterile saline solution. Breast implant surgery Beverly Hills recommends the saline implant over the silicone breast implant due to its safety as the saline is easily absorbed by the body should the implant leak and also posses a very low infection rate. Secondly, saline breasts are filled after being inserted into the breast; therefore the Beverly Hills Cosmetic Surgeon needs to make a very small incision in order to insert it.
The Silicone Breast Implants come pre-filled with a silicone gel and are a favorite choice among women due to their natural appearance and feel. A few years back, questions were raised about the safety of Silicone Breast Implants. It was believed that Silicone Breast Implants were causing autoimmune diseases and hardening of the breasts in the women who opted for silicon breasts implants. As a result, the FDA banned them for use except in cases of mastectomy and for women who had enrolled themselves for long-term clinical studies.
After a 10 year ban and after numerous clinical studies, the FDA lifted the ban on Silicon Breast Implants allowing anyone undergoing Beverly Hills breast augmentation the choice of saline breast implants or silicone breast implants.
