Many people want to try cosmetic surgery but are put off by the fact that they can’t be 100% sure of what the results will be.
This is all set to change with new technology that can show women what the results of their breast augmentation will look like before they go under the knife. This is likely to allay the fears of thousands of women who dream of having the procedure but don’t want to end up looking disfigured or scarred like some of the patients they may read about in the weekly magazines.
The SD imaging allows women to see the likely results, note not the guaranteed results, of the breast augmentation procedure which they will be undergoing. This means that discussions about the desired shape, size or position of the new breasts do not now have to be mere abstracted conjecture; visual images can back up any claims made by the surgeon and reassure each patient, or forewarn them as the case may be, as to what the end result will be.
Since the boom in cosmetic surgery began over two decades ago, breast augmentations and reductions have long been at the top of the treatment ladder; everyone wants the perfect pair. The enduring popularity of the so-called ‘boob job’ is down to the fact that women of all ages and sizes want them. Indeed, as Dr. Tiffany McCormack has pointed out everyone “from young women, who never fully developed to the extent that they wanted, to older mothers who just lost a lot of the breast tissue … after say breast-feeding or pregnancy,” are going under the knife.
This imaging technology is not the only advance in the breast augmentation arena to have been made in recent years. Saline implants have burst onto the scene as a really successful and viable alternative to silicone implants for some women. However, for other, the more old fashioned silicone implants are still more appropriate. But whatever the actual implant, whether you want bigger or smaller breasts, whether you want a lift after pregnancy or whether you want more ascetically pleasing nipples, the new SD imaging system will help women of all ages and sizes see the results of their surgery without a cut being made; it will give them a chance, visually at least, to try before they buy. That should certainly give the industry a lift!
