Breast Augmentation Surgery
Breast augmentation, clinically referred to augmentation mammoplasty, also known as breast enlargement or breast implants or breast enhancement, is one of the most sought after cosmetic breast surgery all over India.
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to place implants inside breast to get better fullness or make it symmetrical. There are different approaches to get the surgery done. The most advanced one even does not leave a scar mark on breast after surgery. It is done with saline breast implants.
Who are best candidates for the surgery?
1. Women who naturally have smaller breasts.
2. Restoration of the volume of the breast following a pregnancy and breast feeding or loss of volume due to sudden weight loss.
3. To get better symmetry in shape and size.
Why should one go in for breast augmentation?
Women with small breasts might have an altered body image and are a source of ridicule from their peers which makes them feel less feminine and are perfect candidates for breast augmentation. Breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty or increase in the size of the breasts is commonly done with the help of an implant (filled with saline or silicone gel) which is put under the breast or under the muscle of the chest to portend an increase in its size.
A lot of factors help in deciding whether the implant needs to be placed under the breasts or under the muscle or in both planes. A variety of incisions are used in putting this implant, please discuss with your surgeon about which would suit you best. Apart from implants, increase in breast size can also be achieved with injections of fat harvested elsewhere from your body in multiple sittings and this form of surgery is usually advocated in patients who desire only a moderate improvement in the size of the breasts. However, owing to the variable absorption of fat, the results can be unpredictable and therefore requires multiple sessions to achieve a good result.
General anesthesia is used during this surgery which means that you would be put to sleep during the procedure. Depending on your recovery, you might be discharged on the same day of the surgery although a 1 day stay in the hospital is recommended. If you are likely to get pregnant in future, your surgeon would take extra caution so that breastfeeding is not hampered.
Complications of surgery include infection with resultant need to remove the implants, hypertrophic scarring over the incision line or can be related to the implant like implant rupture, extrusion and capsular contracture of the breasts which make the breasts appear contracted and make them painful.
