Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation – also known as breast enlargement or augmentation mammoplasty – involves the use of implants or fat transfers to give you fuller breasts or to restore your breast volume after weight reduction or pregnancy. For some women, this procedure means increasing their self-confidence, whilst others consider it to reconstruct the breast after undergoing a mastectomy or after an illness.

Whatever your reason, if you are dissatisfied with your breast size, augmentation surgery is a choice to consider as this will increase the fullness and projection of your breasts, improve the overall balance of your figure, and certainly help to boost your self-confidence.

Typical Uses

If you are dissatisfied with your breast size, augmentation surgery is a choice to consider. Breast augmentation can:

Breast augmentation is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfil someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image. Nevertheless, this procedure can help improve your overall appearance  by endowing your breasts with volume and fullness.

What It Entails

During breast augmentation surgery, incisions are made in an inconspicuous area to minimize visible scarring. Next, silicone breast implants – filled with an elastic gel – are inserted, either under the pectoral muscle or directly behind the breast tissue, over the pectoral muscle. Finally, the incisions are closed with layered sutures in the breast tissue and using sutures, skin adhesive or surgical tape to close the skin.

How It Works

1.During the consultation

If you are interested in getting breast augmentation, you should start by booking a consultation with our clinic doctor. During the consultation, you will be able to express what you are hoping to gain from this treatment and, after reviewing your medical history, our doctor will be able to determine whether you are eligible to undergo this type of procedure.

If you are a viable candidate, our doctor will outline the best course of treatment to ensure that you achieve optimal results.

2.During the procedure

During the surgical procedure, a general anaesthetic is administered to ensure your comfort throughout. Once the anaesthesia has taken effect, our plastic surgeon will start by making the required incisions in an inconspicuous area to minimise visible scarring. Next, the breast implants - in the agreed upon size - are inserted, either under the pectoral muscle or directly behind the breast tissue, over the pectoral muscle. Once these silicone implants have been accurately positioned, incisions are closed with layered sutures in the breast tissue, and sutures, skin adhesive or surgical tape is used to close the skin.

The entire procedure typically takes between one to two hours, depending on the extent of the surgery.

3.After the treatment

Post-surgery, 24 to 48 hours of downtime is needed, with an additional reduced-activity period of a few days. After this recovery time has passed, you will most likely experience soreness and swelling for a few weeks. Exercise and normal activity can be resumed at the direction of your plastic surgeon and, over time, post-surgical swelling will decrease and incision lines will fade.

Following the procedure, you will be given specific instructions to ease your recovery such as: when to follow-up with your plastic surgeon, how to care for your breasts following surgery and any medications needed to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection.

Nevertheless, it is important to know that your breast implants may require replacement during your lifetime. You should expect to have future visits with your plastic surgeon to discuss changes in your breasts. 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.

  • You are physically healthy and maintain a stable weight
  • You are a non smoker

  • Your breasts are fully developed
  • 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

Follow-Up Procedures

After getting breast augmentation surgery, follow up sessions may be needed to monitor your recovery. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary.

In some cases, when the breasts are also sagging, breast augmentation is best combined with breast lift surgery for better results.
