What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty or breast implant surgery, is a surgical procedure designed to enhance the breasts' size, shape, or symmetry. Breast augmentation involves the insertion of breast implants, which are typically filled with saline or silicone gel, to enhance the size, shape, or symmetry of the breasts. The procedure begins with making a small incision, often under the breast near the crease, although other incision locations may be used depending on the patient's anatomy and preferences. The implants are placed behind the breast tissue or beneath the chest muscle. This augmentation aims to achieve a more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing breast contour, addressing concerns such as small breast size, volume loss due to weight loss or pregnancy, asymmetry, or dissatisfaction with breast shape.

Saline vs. Silicone Implants

Saline breast implants are filled with sterile saltwater solution and are inserted into the breast empty before being filled to the desired size. They are often chosen for their adjustability during surgery and their lower cost. However, some patients find them less natural-feeling than silicone implants. Silicone breast implants are pre-filled with a silicone gel that closely mimics the feel of natural breast tissue. They are often preferred for their natural appearance and feel, with less risk of visible rippling or wrinkling. While they typically require a larger incision for insertion than saline implants, many patients find the results more satisfying regarding both look and feel. After exploring the differences between saline and silicone breast implants, we will guide you through the decision-making process to determine which option aligns best with your goals and preferences before proceeding with surgery.

Is Breast Augmentation Right for Me?

Determining if breast augmentation is the right choice involves considering various factors. Ideal candidates are generally in good physical health, have realistic expectations about the outcomes, and desire to enhance the size or shape of their breasts. Those who feel their breasts are too small, asymmetrical or have lost volume due to pregnancy, weight loss, or aging may benefit from breast implants, or other benefits of this procedure. However, individual suitability can only be determined through a consultation with our expert team, who can assess your medical history and aesthetic goals to recommend the most suitable approach for achieving your desired bust.

What to Expect: The Breast Augmentation Procedure

During a breast augmentation procedure, you will typically receive general anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. We will then make incisions in inconspicuous locations to minimize visible scarring, such as underneath the breast, around the areola, or in the armpit. The choice of incision location depends on factors like the type of implant, your anatomy, and your surgeon's preference. Once the incisions are made, we will carefully create a pocket behind the breast tissue or beneath the chest muscle to accommodate the breast implant. The implant is inserted into the pocket, and the incisions are closed with sutures. The entire procedure usually takes about one to two hours, though this can vary depending on factors such as the complexity of the surgery and whether additional procedures, such as a breast lift, are performed simultaneously.

Breast Augmentation Recovery

After receiving breast implants, you can expect some downtime as your body heals. Initially, you may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed pain medication and wearing a supportive surgical bra. It's essential to follow our postoperative instructions carefully, which may include restrictions on physical activities and proper wound care to minimize the risk of complications.

Most patients can return to light activities within a few days to a week but should avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for several weeks. It's normal for your breasts to feel firm and swollen initially, but they will gradually soften and settle into their final position over the coming weeks and months. We will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and ensure optimal healing and results.
