From recent statistical data, more than 10 million people have undergone breast augmentation worldwide. In 2018, American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the largest plastic surgery specialty organization in the world reveals that breast augmentation has remained the 1st rank of the most popular plastic surgery. Its popularity has been increasingly growing with over 300,000 cases per year. Domestically, in Thailand, International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) indicates that an estimated number of women with breast augmentation is approximately 14,000 cases per year. In fact, this number seems to be underestimated since the actual number should be over 20,000 cases per year
Types Of Breast Implants
Breast augmentation can be categorized into 2 main types. It could be performed as a single approach or in a combination at the same time.
- Breast implant augmentation: Available implants are saline and various types of silicones. Saline-filled implants are silicone shells filled with sterile salt water (saline). Some types are pre-filled and others are filled during the implant surgery. While silicone gel-filled implants are silicone shells filled with a plastic gel (silicone).
- Fat transfer augmentation: Fat transfer breast augmentation takes fat from other parts of patient’s body through liposuction and injects it into the breasts in order to enlarge their size. This is an increasingly used technique since it uses autologous fats obtained from patients themselves with less possible side effects that might cause by artificial implants. In addition, it looks more natural in comparison with implant ones. Nevertheless, it is more complicated procedure due to the fat transfer requires liposuction and the predicted outcomes after fat implant might vary among individuals.
