FAQ's Regarding Breast Augmentation

What is Breast Augmentation and how it is done?
Breast augmentation (or Mammoplasty) is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breast. This procedure can be done for a number of reasons: to enhance the body contour of a woman who feels her breast size is too small; to correct a difference in breast size; to correct a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy; as a reconstructive technique after breast surgery.
By inserting an implant, filled with either silicone gel or a salt-water solution (saline), behind each breast, we are able to increase a woman’s bustline by one or more bra cup sizes.
In the initial consultation, we can discuss your expectations and explain which surgical techniques are most appropriate, based on the condition of your breasts and the skin tone.
The method of inserting and positioning the implant will depend on your anatomy and our recommendation. The incision can be made in the crease where the breast meets the chest, around the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple) or in the armpit. Every effort will be made to assure that the incision is placed so scars will be as inconspicuous as possible.
The breast tissue and skin is lifted to create a pocket, either directly behind the breast tissue or underneath the chest wall muscle (pectoral muscle). The implants are then centered beneath the nipples.
We will discuss with you the pros and cons of where the implant is placed. It is also important to note that the aesthetic look of the breasts can vary depending upon placement of the implants along with your body structure.
The operation usually takes one to two hours to complete. Stitches are used to close the incisions, which may also be taped for greater support. You may feel tired and sore for a few days following the surgery, but should be up and around in 24 to 48 hours. Most of the discomfort can be controlled by medication. Within several days,you will be given a surgical bra. The stitches will come out in a week to ten days, but swelling in your breasts may take three to five weeks to disappear.

You will be able to return to work within a few days, depending on the level of activity required for your job. We will advise you on when to begin exercises and normal activities.
