Breast Enlargement

Breast enlargement, otherwise known as breast augmentation, is a surgical procedure that allows women to enhance the size and shape of their breasts through the insertion of breast implants. The breast implants are a silicone elastomer shell that is filled with either saline or silicone, and are surgically inserted under the breast tissue. The use of breast implants also allows the Cosmetic Surgeon to reshape the women’s breast tissue to achieve a desirable look and shape.

Not all women are endowed with large breasts, so more women continue to choose to pursue breast enlargement surgery as a solution. Other reasons that prompt women to seek this surgery may be more restorative or reconstructive, for example, to restore breast size and shape following pregnancy and breast feeding, significant weight loss or breast removal. This kind of surgery can restore a women’s self confidence and boost self esteem. A small, sagging and deflated breast may be a psychological and emotional issue for many women. Breast enlargement surgery can usually provide a safe and effective solution with a minimum recovery period. In this day and age when there is an increased focus on our appearance, many women are starting to consider breast enlargement surgery to enhance their appearance, body proportion and contours.

Breast enlargement surgery offers other advantages. Breast implants can be used to increase volume for women whose breasts have not fully developed. Breast implants can also effectively address Breast ptosis (breast droop or sag) in some women. Breast augmentation surgery can also be used to address asymmetry of the breasts.

Among the conventional Cosmetic Surgical techniques available today, breast enlargement surgery is by far the most common. The procedure may be performed under general anaesthetic or twilight sedation, usually at a day surgery hospital. After the Cosmetic Surgeon makes an incision in the breast, the breast implants are inserted and secured in place in a pocket within the breast tissue. The incision can be made in the inconspicuous skin crease just under the breast, called the mammary fold. Other potential incision sites include around the nipple areola or under the armpit.

Anyone who is seriously considering breast enlargement surgery should conduct comprehensive research and try to learn as much as possible about the procedure before making a decision to pursue surgery. As with any surgical procedure, breast enlargement surgery entails complications and risks, including bleeding, infection, leakage/rupture of implant, seroma or capsular contracture. It is important to weigh these risks carefully with the advantages of surgery. Finally, choose the best Cosmetic Surgeon with whom you can feel comfortable, safe and fully informed.
