Also known as augmentation mammaplasty, breast augmentation involves surgery to fulfill your desire for fuller breasts or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy.

Breast Augmentation is a process were in the natural breasts are enhanced to appear bigger. This can be done using breast implants made of silicone. The effects are long lasting. The implant is placed with a small incision. The site of the incison may be in the breast fold, axilla, areola or the umblicus depending on the patient’s choice. In some people it is possible to augment the breast using one’s own fat from abdomen or thighs.

If you are dissatisfied with your breast size, augmentation surgery is a choice to consider. Breast augmentation can:
  • Increase fullness and projection of your breasts
  • Improve the balance of your figure
  • Enhance your self-image and self-confidence

    Breast augmentation may be a good option for you if
  • You are bothered by the feeling that your breasts are too small
  • You are dissatisfied with your breasts losing shape and volume after pregnancy, weight loss, or with aging
  • Your breasts vary in size or shape
  • One or both breasts failed to develop normally

The surgery can be done if you are physically healthy and if your breasts are fully developed.

Breast augmentation does not correct severely drooping breasts. If you want your breasts to look fuller and to be lifted due to sagging, a breast lift may be required in conjunction with breast augmentation. Breast lifting can often be done at the same time as your augmentation or may require a separate operation. Your plastic surgeon will assist you in making this decision.

Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water. They can be filled with varying amounts of saline which can affect the shape, firmness and feel of the breast. Should the implant shell leak, a saline implant will collapse and the saline will be absorbed and naturally expelled by the body.

Silicone implants are filled with an elastic gel. The gel feels and moves much like natural breast tissue. If the implant leaks, the gel may remain within the implant shell, or may escape into the breast implant pocket.

After a post-surgical recovery period of 24 to 48 hours and an additional reduced-activity period of a few days, you are likely experience soreness and swelling for a few weeks. Exercise and normal activity can resume at the direction of your plastic surgeon. Over a period of time, post-surgical swelling will decrease and incision lines will fade.

The results of your breast augmentation surgery will be long-lasting. You will find it easier to wear certain styles of clothing and swim wear. Like many women who have had breast augmentation, you may also have a boost in self confidence.

Over time, your breasts can change due to aging, weight fluctuations, hormonal factors and gravity. If, after a period of years, you become dissatisfied with the appearance of your breasts, you may choose to undergo a breast lift or implant exchange to restore a more youthful contour.
