Breast augmentation is the surgical placement of breast implants to increase fullness and projection of the breasts or to improve symmetry of the breasts. Clinically referred to as augmentation mammaplasty, the procedure is used cosmetically to:
•Enlarge a naturally small breast, most commonly the result of heredity.
•Restore breast volume lost following pregnancy, as a result of breast-feeding or due to weight loss.
•Achieve better symmetry when breasts are moderately disproportionate in size and shape.
Anaesthetic : General.
Stay in clinic : 1 day and 1 night.
Recuperation : 8 days
A small incision is made and the prosthesis is inserted between the gland and the breast plate and in some cases (delicate skin and no gland) slithered under the pectoral muscle. The prosthesis used is a variety of high-grade silicone gels filled implants.
Length of breast augmentation surgery: One hour and 30 minutes
Post operative care:
At some point in the first 24 to 48 hours, you will experience swelling, bruising, numbness, discomfort and temporary soreness in the chest area but with a degree of subtlety still.
During the first 15 days, you will feel temporary pain whenever you tend to move your arms as your breast will be still fragile and sore.
You will need 3 months at least to be accustomed to the presence of the implant and be able to resume to normal activities such as exercising, breast feeding and pregnancy.
Unlike what you hear at times, flying and diving do not have any effects on the breast augmentation surgery.
After a breast augmentation surgery, Breasts are supple and naturally looking. The natural sensitivity to stimulation of breasts is preserved.
