Breast augmentation (enlargement) is a surgical operation whereby the breast is made larger to create an enhanced cosmetic outcome.
This is usually achieved by inserting a prosthetic implant or through autologous fat transfer in selected patients. By far, breast implants are the treatment option of choice.
The surgery is usually done through a short incision through the skin at the base of the breast. The resulting scar is then hidden under the mound of the breast.
The breast implants are either placed under the breast or under the muscle of the chest. The appropriate plane for implant displacement depends on the size and volume of the breast preoperatively. This will be discussed with you at your consultation as Breast implants vary in many ways and come in various different sizes and shapes. Implants of the right size are individually selected for each patient based on their breast size, shape, and the build of their body. You will actively participate in choosing the right one for yourself.
Breast implants are not permanent devices and you will need an operation in the future to either remove or to replace it. The implants which we use (Nagor) come with a lifetime guarantee against leaking or rupture. We do not use PIP implants.
In women with mild to moderate saggy breasts, this problem may be corrected with implants. In selected cases, augmentation is done with mastopexy (uplift).
