Breast Enlargement Surgery

Dec 2, 2016Posted by nameless

Also known as augmentation mammaplasty, breast augmentation involves using implants to fulfill your desire for fuller breasts or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy.


Step 1 – General anesthesia

Step 2 - The Incision options include:

Inframammary incision

Transaxillary incision

Periareolar incision

Step 3 - Implant choice: Silicone breast implants or saline breast implants?

Step 4 - Inserting and placing the breast implant

? Under the pectoral muscle (a submuscular placement), or

? Directly behind the breast tissue, over the pectoral muscle (a submammary/ subglandular placement)

Step 5 - Closing the incisions

Length of the procedure: 1 – 2 hours

Recovery: Although many factors are involved with determining your actual recovery time for breast augmentation, you will likely experience a post-surgical recovery period  of 24 to 48 hours and an additional reduced-activity period of a few days, you will likely experience soreness and swelling for a few weeks.

Results: The results of your breast augmentation surgery will be long-lasting. You will find it easier to wear certain styles of clothing and swim wear. Like many women who have had breast augmentation, you may also have a boost in self confidence.

Unfavorable scarring

Bleeding (hematoma)


Poor healing of incisions

Changes in nipple or breast sensation, may be temporary or permanent

Capsular contracture, which is the formation of firm scar tissue around the implant

Implant leakage or rupture

Wrinkling of the skin over the implant

Deep vein thrombosis, cardiac and pulmonary complications

Possibility of revisional surgery
