Holly Madison, one of Playboy's Girls Next Door, has always been in the public eye for her body. In 2009, she admited to having her nose altered and her breasts augmented. Today, she is still looking good and a public figure. Could her enhancements have boosted her career?
Contrary to what most people believe, breast implants are available for both men and women. Breast implants serve many purposes, not just to augment the size of the breast, but to correct deformities and other congenital defects. As a surgical practice, breast implants require the reconstruction of the chest wall and the inner breast. There are two main types of breast implants used for mammoplasty, augmentation, and reconstruction procedures today: saline and silicone.
Saline and Silicone Options
The saline breast implant was a physically less invasive surgical technique that was preferred by many patients. However, discovery of the high rates of deflation when compared with silicone implants made it a less approved and accepted type of implant. However, most people would find that they still produce acceptable results such as larger breasts, smoother contour, and a generally more pleasing appearance. Silicone gel implants are the second type of breast implants commonly used today. These tend to be more stable within the breast shell and offer similar results.
Enhancement of the breasts through breast implants is a tricky procedure that involves five types of surgical incisions. As a result there is a longer post-surgical recovery. While the scars tend to fade at the six-week mark, the patient must withhold from physical activity until then as the incisions may open if strenuous activities are engaged in. Such a large operation may also intrude on the patient's mental and emotional health as detailed in various studies. For some women and men, breast implants can raise or lower sexual functioning and self-esteem.
For aesthetic purposes, breast implants may prove to tackle a patient's problem of asymmetry, wrinkling, or other characteristic of the like. It's important to note, however, that breast implants are a surgical operation that has a high risk for complications such as rupture and contracture. Understand the benefits and risks of this type of repair and revision surgery before deciding to engage in the procedure. For someone needing to improve or enhance their figure, they can definitely make a statement, much like Holly Madison.
