Breast augmentation can dramatically improve the appearance of a woman’s breasts. During your breast augmentation consultation, you’ll learn more about your options for creating your ideal breast appearance, including:
- Implant size
- Implant type
- Implant material (silicone gel or saline)
- Implant position (above or below the pectoralis muscle)
- Implant incision
Once you’ve decided to pursue breast augmentation, you want to make sure to find the right surgeon, the right implant, and the right technique to meet your expectations. Our surgeons have extensive surgical experience.
Breast Enlargement Procedure
Breast enlargements are one of the most commonly performed operations in my practice. There are different ways of performing a breast enlargement.
- The type of prosthesis
- Incision placement
- The positioning of the prosthesis with regard to the chest muscle ( pectoralis major)
We mainly place prosthesis behind the muscle (dual plane) because of better quality soft tissue coverage, usually allowing for a more natural feel. If, patients have sufficient soft tissue, i.e. breast tissue and subcutaneous fat, we will consider to position the prosthesis in front of the muscle.
All breast enlargements are done under general anesthetic.
Patients are normally discharged on the same day.
Duration of Procedure approximately 1.5 hours
