Breast augmentation is the procedure in which breast which are small in size can be enlarged and also to improve and shape of the breasts in one surgical procedure. Breast augmentation surgery can be a means to increase the size of small breasts to make you feel more feminine

Two methods by which breast augmentation is done are:

  1. Fat grafting
  2. Breast implants.

Either silicon or saline implant is recommended and size will be selected according to your an preference of size, your body frame, mass and current status of breast tissue during the consultation.

Fat is taken  from the body part where extra fat is present such as from tummy region, hips or thigh region and it is transferred to the breast.

A main benefit of breast augmentation via fat grafting is foreign material is inserted into your breasts. And because this procedure uses tissues similar to the tissues that make up the breast, it’s possible to form a breast that feels natural and creates a natural silhouette. Breast augmentation via fat grafting can result in an added benefit: a trimmer body. Liposuction removes excess fat from areas of the body that have not responded well to diet and exercise. For a breast augmentation procedure, this fat is then used to enhance the breasts.

During the Procedure (4 Questions):

The duration of the surgery is usually 2-3 hours.

It will take around 45 minutes to one hour to do breast augmentation surgery.

Breast augmentation surgery is a day care procedure performed under general anesthesia. The procedure involves making an incision either underneath the breast, just above the crease, around the lower edge of the areola and an implant is inserted in the pocket in the breast.

Breast augmentation via fat grafting is a breast enhancement procedure that uses the body’s own fat to enlarge the breasts. This method of breast augmentation uses liposuction to remove unwanted fat from another part of the body, such as the thighs, buttocks or abdomen. The fat is then used to create larger breasts that look and feel natural.

Post the Procedure (15 Questions):

Many patients return to work within the first week after breast augmentation surgery, depending on the nature of their jobs, and resume most daily activities after a week or so.

You will need to limit exercise for the first 2-6 weeks after a breast lift, Sleep on your back for the first several weeks or more after surgery and for silicone implants, it is recommended that patients undergo periodic monitoring to screen for ruptures

Specific changes to the breasts with both saline and silicone implant includes scar tissue formation around the implant referred to as a capsule.

Breast implants are strong enough to withstand even the most enthusiastic gropes and squeezes.

The scar will be in hidden under the breast crease which will be of very small size and that too improve in appearance over a period of time

There are no major side effects other than the swelling, bruising and very rarely some alteration in nipple sensation.

Rest of 1-2 days is recommended. Do not raise arms above shoulder level and avoid sleeping on the belly. Sleep with your head elevated for at least 2 weeks after the surgery and do not sleep on your belly. Ensure that the suture line is clean and dry. Avoid exercise or strenuous activities for 3 to 4 weeks.

It is a day care surgery you can go home on the same day of surgery .can resume your work whenever you are comfortable. There will be small tapes put on the stitch sites and these stitches will be removed within 10 days

It is a safe and effective technique for enhancing the breasts. Lumps or ripples are felt initially which occurs due to some fat being reabsorbed into the body. Swelling and bruising occur for first week which disappear after that.
