Breast enlargement, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, can enhance your body’s contour, if you’re unhappy with your breast size, or to improve the loss of your breast volume following pregnancy and nursing.
This surgery can be done either through the use of breast implants or fat transfer. Silicone gel implants of various sizes, profiles, and shapes, depending on your unique needs, will be implanted by standard routes (peri-areolar, through the lower breast folds or armpits) with placement either above or below the chest muscle.
Whilst breast augmentation will enlarge the breasts, the surgery will not alter underlying basic defects in breast shape and form. Major asymmetries may be improved but will not be completely corrected with breast enlargement alone.
The procedure is usually performed under general anaesthesia or conscious sedation with local anaesthetic. The surgical scar(s) are usually hidden as much as possible in skin folds. A soft bra or compression garment should be worn for several days. All sutures are removed in a couple of weeks, and normal activities can be resumed in about a week or so.
