Description

Procedure

Breast augmentation is also known as breast enlargement. It involves the placement of silicone or saline breast implants under or above the chest muscle.  Breast augmentation is usually done to enhance the size or shape of breasts or to balance a difference in breast size. This creates a cosmetic enhancement.

The procedure is performed by inserting a breast implant behind the breast tissue or above the breast muscle.  Breast Implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes, with varying designs, in a range of materials.  They can be placed in different positions through a variety of incision locations. The goal is to leave your breasts looking as natural as possible while enlarging them to your desired size.

The surgeon may recommend that a breast lift and breast augmentation be performed at the same time. This is most commonly recommended to treat the sagging appearance that results from aging or pregnancy. During this combined procedure, some breast tissue is removed, the breast skin is tightened and lifted, and an implant is inserted.

Length

The entire process takes about two hours.

Anesthesia

The patient can be completely unconscious or given general anesthesia. Or, intravenous sedation may also be administered. Please check with your consultant on what anesthesia may be used with your surgeon of choice. 

Inpatient/Outpatient

Depending on the surgeon’s preference, either inpatient or outpatient. Some packages include a hospital stay. Please check with your consultant on whether the procedure is inpatient (hospital stay) or outpatient (day surgery).  

Side effects possible

Temporary, mild discomfort, mild to moderate swelling and bruising. For a few weeks, breasts can be sensitive to stimulation.

There are risks

One breast implant, or both, may need to be removed or replaced in order to correct problems such as deflation, implant failure, scar tissue formation around the implant (capsular contracture), which can cause breast pain, hardness, bleeding, and infection. There are also risks associated with increased or decreased sensitivity to the breast skin or nipples, which can sometimes be permanent.

Recovery

Within a few days, the patient can return to work. For approximately three to four week, she should not have any contact with her breasts (except her bra). Depending on how each patient heals, scars will fade and flatten in three to six months.

Results

Each patient’s experience will be different. The overall effect is an increase in breast size to improve appearance.

Cost of Breast Augmentation

Costs of breast augmentation can vary based on surgeon fees, anesthesia used, inpatient (hospital) or outpatient (day surgery), implant type, method of insertion, and package inclusions.  Please ask your consultant for verification on what is/is not included.
