Breast Augmentation

What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation, sometimes referred to as augmentation mammoplasty, is a type of cosmetic surgery used to improve a woman's breast size and form. Usually, fat transfer or breast implants are used to accomplish this.

When and Why is Breast Augmentation Recommended?

Breast augmentation is recommended for women who are dissatisfied with the size or shape of their breasts or who have experienced changes in breast volume due to factors such as pregnancy, weight loss, or aging. Common reasons for considering breast augmentation include:

  • Small Breast Size: Women who feel their breasts are too small or disproportionate to the rest of their body.

  • Changes after Pregnancy: Mothers may experience changes in breast size and shape after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

  • Asymmetry: Some women have naturally uneven breasts, and breast augmentation can help achieve symmetry.

  • Reconstruction: Breast augmentation is also used in breast reconstruction following mastectomy or other breast surgery.

How is Breast Augmentation Different from Conventional Treatment?

Conventional treatments for dissatisfaction with breast size often involve the use of padded bras, push-up bras, or other non-surgical methods to enhance the appearance of the breasts. Breast augmentation differs as it involves a surgical procedure to physically alter the size and shape of the breasts.

How is Life After Breast Augmentation?

Life after breast augmentation involves a period of recovery, during which patients need to follow post-operative care instructions. 

  • Improved Breast Appearance: Patients typically experience enhanced breast volume and shape, leading to increased confidence and satisfaction with their appearance.

  • Recovery Period: The initial recovery period involves some discomfort, swelling, and restrictions on certain activities. Full recovery may take several weeks.

  • Scarring: Breast augmentation leaves scars, usually around the areola, in the breast crease, or in the axilla (armpit). Scars vary in appearance and fade over time.

  • Follow-Up Care: Regular follow-up appointments with the surgeon are important to monitor the healing process and address any concerns.

  • Breast Implant Longevity: While breast implants are not lifetime devices, they can last for many years. Some individuals may need additional surgeries for implant replacement or removal.

What types of breast implants are available?

Saline and silicone gel implants are the two main types. Each has its advantages, and the choice depends on individual preferences and factors.

How soon can I return to work and normal activities?

The timeline varies, but most patients can return to work within a week and gradually resume normal activities.

Is breast augmentation painful?

Some discomfort is normal after surgery, but pain is typically manageable with prescribed medications.

Can breast augmentation affect breastfeeding?

While breast implants generally do not interfere with breastfeeding, it's essential to discuss this with the surgeon, especially if future pregnancies are planned.
