Breasts are a sign of Feminity to a lady. A self-conscious lady may feel disappointed with small or saggy breasts. This can be improved by various means, like (1) Implant placement and (2) Fat Injection. This is also known as Breast Enlargement Surgery or Breast Augmentation Surgery.
Breast augmentation is performed to
- Enlarge underdeveloped breast,
- Balance difference in breast size and
- Improve contour/ fullness of small/ptotic (falling) breast after childbirth.
Sometimes, this surgery is also performed for enlargement of post-cancer excision breast.
Most commonly this is achieved with placement of Silicone Breast Implants underneath breasts. There are two types of implants available:
- Silicone filled
Silicone filled implants are most commonly used, as they give a more natural feel to a breast.
An implant can be inserted through an incision under breast crease, areola border or armpit. Among all these approaches, we use breast crease incision most commonly. An implant is placed under the breast tissue or under chest muscle depending upon the condition of existing breast, your expectations, and surgeon’s aesthetic judgment.
Our surgeon will take your help while choosing an implant size to give your breasts best possible size and shape. If you are looking for very large breast size, then two-staged approach may be used.
Safety of silicone implants is established now clinically. It neither cause cancer nor interferes with breastfeeding.
A procedure is done as day care procedure. You can resume your routine work from next day.
