Everything You Need To Know About Breast Augmentation

Beauty is subjective and has a different definition according to everyone!

However, there is nothing wrong with yearning for a particular kind of body goal. For example, some want an ideal hip; some people crave well-shaped buttocks, some may want well-toned thighs, and so on.

Similarly, many women these days desire perfect breasts. They want to size it up according to their body proportion by either reducing or enhancing their breast size. Breast augmentation is one such procedure that helps women achieve larger and firmer breasts.

What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical technique that involves inserting implants into pre-existing breasts. It adds fullness, size, and attractiveness to the breasts. This technique is also useful for restoring your breast volume after weight loss or pregnancy. It makes the breasts appear more rounded and symmetrical.

Fat transfer via liposuction is sometimes carried out for routine breast enlargement.

Who is a suitable candidate for breast augmentation?

    • Candidates seeking a larger and fuller chest

    • Candidates seeking a curvaceous and appealing physique

    • For women who had breast cancer surgery and lost their breast

    • Post-lactation sagging breasts in women

However, you need to be healthy and have no major physical ailment. Also, pregnant and lactating mothers cannot get breast augmentation done.

What are the techniques used for breast augmentation?

There are mainly two popular techniques for breast augmentation:

Breast augmentation with implants

Breast augmentation with implants is performed as an outpatient surgery and takes about 1.5 hours. In this procedure silicone gel-filled implants or saline-filled implants are inserted in the breasts through an incision. Breast implants have high success rates and thus are quite popular for developing curved breasts.

Regular doctor appointments and MRI checkups should be taken to track the implants’ condition.

Breast augmentation with fat transfer

In this procedure, liposuction is used to extract spare fat from other places of the body like hips, thighs, tummy, or butt. This fat is then injected into your breasts. This technique allows many women to achieve round, well-shaped, and fuller breasts.

What is the procedure for breast augmentation surgery?

Our surgeon begins with an incision in the armpit to avoid major scarring on the breast. The implant will then be placed in a pocket beneath or above the pectoralis muscle. The manner of insertion and placement is determined by the type of implant used, the desired level of augmentation, and your body type.

After inserting the implant, the incision is sewed up and closed using skin adhesive and surgical tape. The incision mark fades with time, and its location beneath the arm keeps it quite unnoticed.

What should you expect post-breast augmentation surgery?

 

    • Patients spend about 2 hours in the recovery room before being discharged.

    • A sense of chest tightness, fullness, or slight pain may occur.

    • After 2-3 hours of operation, patients are permitted to walk carefully.

    • You may continue with light physical activities; however, you must avoid lifting anything heavy.

    • Patients must be accompanied by a responsible adult who can safely drive them home following surgery.

Recovery

The recovery period after the surgery is around 3 to 6 weeks. In fact, patients who adhere to aftercare guidelines properly recover even faster.

What kind of results should you expect from breast augmentation surgery?

Breast augmentations are a long-term approach to reaching your ideal body shape. You will feel better about yourself and look better in swimwear and apparel. You will have a more youthful appearance, and your new appearance will improve your self-esteem and view on life.
