Breast Augmentation Surgery
Breast enlargement, or augmentation mammoplasty often referred to as “breast implants”, enhances the body contour of a woman who is unhappy with her breast size. This procedure can also correct a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy or balance a difference in breast size. In certain cases where the breasts have sagging or droopiness, a simultaneous breast lift may be necessary.
During the procedure, an implant is inserted through an incision made in the crease under the breast. The implant may be placed under the breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle. Women may choose to have saline or silicone implants. Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure which usually takes about one hour under general anesthesia. Most patients return to routine activity within the first week but aerobic activity and strenuous upper body activity are limited for 3-4 weeks.
