Breast Enlargement – Are You Considering Cosmetic Breast Surgery?

A breast enlargement surgery is a popular cosmetic procedure for women. This procedure is an ideal solution for women who want to enhance their body contours. It is also a viable solution for breast reconstruction and to correct any size imbalance. The procedure consists of inserting silicone implants behind each breast to add 1 or more cup sizes by enhancing the volume and bust size of the breasts. The implants are usually inserted directly underneath the breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle.

I Am Considering a Breast Enlargement Surgery

If you are considering a breast enlargement, we advise you to book a consultation with one of our surgeons for an in-depth explanation on the surgery and how it can benefit you. This will allow you to make an informed decision that is based on a professional surgeon’s assessment and opinion on how a breast enlargement surgery can work for you. By keeping your expectations realistic, augmentation mammoplasty can serve as a solution to improve your body contours based on your build.

The Procedure

Your surgeon will discuss and choose an optimal way to insert and position the implants based on your body and your surgeon’s recommendations. With a breast enlargement surgery, the surgeon makes an incision in the crease where the breast and the chest meet to ensure that the scars are as inconspicuous as possible. From here, the surgeon will insert and position the silicone implants to ensure that they are perfectly placed before the incisions are stitched up. This procedure can also be combined with a breast lift surgery.

The Recovery

You can expect some pain and discomfort after your surgery. You will receive a prescription for medication to deal with any discomfort while your body is recovering from surgery. If you are a smoker, prepare yourself to refrain from smoking for at least 2 months after the surgery. This will optimise the oxygen flow in your body to help the healing process on a cellular level. You can also expect some swelling. Not to worry, the swelling will subside after about 3 to 5 weeks. Your surgeon may also request that you wear a sports bra during recovery.
