Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation - Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure to increase the size of the breasts. Breast augmentation will also correct slight sagging of the breast and can increase breast firmness.

A similar procedure can sometimes be used to recreate a breast after mastectomy. Breast augmentation is useful if your breasts are unequal in size or if they have decreased in size following pregnancy.

There are currently several techniques for augmentation mammoplasty. They all involve the insertion of an implant either behind the breast tissue or behind the pectoral muscle.

The implant is inserted through a small incision (about 5cm long) either under the breast or around the nipple. A surgical drain is usually inserted. Implants can be either filled with silicon gel or saline. Both types of implant have a silicon outer shell. Your surgeon will discuss the relative merits and drawbacks of each type of implant with you.

Your surgeon will also see you three months after your surgery. You may have some bruising and swelling of the breasts for two or three weeks.

Although scars are the inevitable results of any surgery, your surgeon will make every effort to make the scars as inconspicuous as possible. The goal of your surgery is to augment your breasts to a size that is in better proportion with your physique. An exact cup size is difficult to achieve, but your surgeon is the best person to determine whether your expectations are realistic.
