Breast augmentation, or breast enlargement procedure, enhances the body contour of women who are unhappy with their breast size. Breast augmentation can also help women to boost the volume of their breasts which may have lost volume during pregnancy, it can help balance a difference in breast size and also can be used as a reconstructive technique following breast surgery. A breast implant (prosthesis) is placed through an incision, under the breast tissue or under the muscle, the best position for every body is different and will be discussed upon examination with the surgeon. The incision can be made around the nipple, in the belly button, under the breast in the natural crease or under the arm. The implants come in various shapes and sizes to meet the individual woman's needs. When the implant is placed sub muscularly under the breast, there is a lower chance of contracture (contraction of the tissue capsule surrounding the implant), and mammography is more reliable. There is also less risk of visible or palpable implant edges. However, in some cases the implant has a more natural appearance when placed above the muscle, under the breast tissue.

The modern approach to a breast enlargement procedure, which is the technique we employ, incorporates many different variables in attempting to create the ideal result. The main priority is the patient's desires. This is determined only after a very thorough and detailed consultation about wishes for size, shape and contours. The examination requires analysis of the chest size, the amount of breast tissue present, the elasticity of the skin, and the three dimensional appearance of the breast. By incorporating the patient's wishes with the three dimensional analysis, a range of sizes of implants can be chosen that will create the desired result. A thorough examination of size, shape and slope of the breast implant from every angle is needed. It is only after this meticulous process that the final result is achieved. Breast augmentation can be performed through the nipple, the armpit, underneath the breast, or through the belly button as discussed previously. Implants can contain saline or silicone. Our preferred technique is insertion through the nipple or under the breast, with placement in a dual plane, using a silicone implant. The technique used will vary based on the individual and can only be determined after a full consultation.
Preparing For Your Operation
Products that contain Aspirin, Vitamin E, or Evening Primrose oil should be avoided for three weeks before surgery. Alcoholic drinks should be avoided before surgery. You must wash your hair the day before the operation and make up must be thoroughly removed. You must fast (neither eat or drink) for 6 hours before the operation.
Patients should not smoke for at least 2 weeks before surgery and for a few days after surgery. Smoking interferes with the circulation of blood to the skin. If the patient tints, dyes or bleaches his or her hair, this should be done no later than one week before surgery.
Post Operative Care
You must have someone drive you home and stay with you for 24 hours after breast augmentation surgery. You will experience some pain the first day or two that is easily controlled with pain pills. Some tightness in the breast area is also normal as your body adjusts to the implants. You can move about freely after surgery. Wear a bra at all times (except when showering) during the first 2 weeks following surgery. Avoid heavy lifting for 2-3 weeks. Moderate exercise such as walking or stationary biking is allowed after the first week. Vigorous exercise such as jogging or aerobics may be resumed at 3-4 weeks. You will most likely be able to return to work within a few days, but you will need to avoid any strenuous activity for at least a couple of weeks. During recovery, the breasts will be somewhat swollen. Within a few weeks, the actual shape and size will be evident.
