    Breast augmentation

     

    With silicon implants

    Description

    Breast size is important to many women for a variety if reasons. When a patient is dissatisfied with her breast size, augmentation surgery is a choice to consider. Breast augmentation can :

    •  Increase fullness and projection of the breasts
    •  Improve the balance of the patient’s figure
    •  Enhance self-image and self confidence.

    The procedure involves using silicone implants to fulfill the patient’s desire for fuller breasts or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy.

    Intervention

    The scar can be placed in the breast crease, in the underarm or around the areola.
The location of the scar, the type and size of the prosthesis will be decided in consultation according to the particular anatomical context and the wishes expressed by the patient.
    Placement of implants beneath the chest wall muscle or directly behind breast tissue using cohesive silicone gel implants creates desired volume.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient surgery.

    After your surgery

    The postoperative course can be painful the first few days requiring analgesics.
Recovery period can last from 8 up to 15 days. Sport activities can be resumed after one to two months.

    The result

    The result is immediate. Swelling should subside in 2-4 weeks. Incision lines will continue to flatten and fade for up to 1 year.

    Implants may need to be replaced : It’s important to know that breast implants are not designed to last a lifetime. Patients should plan for an annual examination by their plastic surgeon to see if the implants need to be replaced.
