A breast enlargement/augmentation (augmentation mammoplasty) is a surgically method to increase the volume and differing the shape of the breast by inserting implants under the chests muscle or breast tissue for a number of reasons:
To enhance the body contour of a woman, who for personal reasons feels that her breast size is too small and/or to correct a loss in breast volume after pregnancy and/or to balance breast size, when there exists a significant difference between the size of the breasts and/or as a reconstructive technique for various conditions to help correct loss of confidence, self esteem, impaired body image and reduced quality of life as a result of breast size.
The shape and size of the breasts prior to surgery will influence both the recommended treatment and the final results. If the breasts are not the same size or shape before surgery, it is unlikely that they will be completely symmetrical afterward.
Breast enlargement is accomplished by inserting a breast implant either behind the breast tissue or under the chest muscles. Incisions are made to keep scars as inconspicuous as possible, usually under the breast, around the lower part of the areola, or in the armpit. The method of inserting and positioning breast implants will depend on your preferences, your anatomy and your surgeon’s recommendation and preferences.
Clearly communicate your expectations especially regarding size, shape and appearance to your surgeon so that she/he is able to evaluate your situation and to clearly inform you about the best procedure.
The post-operational process including recovery and expectable operative consequences varies as well as the process may show differences in general and/or detail from patient to patient. The general recovery for most patients of good health and expectable operative consequences are listed as follows. Please notice that the general recovery and/or expectable operative consequences are not limited to the mentioned below.
Mild to moderate pain, soreness as well as swellings are likely for a few weeks after surgery. Bruising may appear as well. Expect scars to fade over time but not disappear completely.
If you don't have a physically demanding job, you might be able to return to work within a few weeks and for returning to regular activities please consult your surgeon. Avoid strenuous activities; anything that could raise your pulse or blood pressure; for at least two weeks post-operative.
This surgery type typically is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anaesthesia. Depending on the condition of the patient a 1 night overstay at the hospital is may required. You should schedule at least 5 days starting from the day of surgery before returning to your home country.
