Many factors can influence the shape of a woman’s breasts. Pregnancy, weight loss and previous surgeries could all cause breasts to change form or lose their shape. Breast augmentation surgery is able to change the shape and the size of a woman’s breast. The procedure can enlarge the breasts or increase fullness and is also effective in restoring symmetry to breasts. Breast augmentation allows women to alter the appearance of their breasts to where they feel more self-confident about this part of their body.
Breast augmentation is also referred to as augmentation mammoplasty and is a cosmetic surgery where the surgeon places a silicone or saline implant under the chest muscle or breast tissue to give the breast a new form. An incision is made under the breast, against the chest, to reduce the visibility of scar tissue as much as possible. The implants that are used are not permanent and will need to be maintained as they last from 7 to 12 years on average. The procedure has seen many advancements over the years, it can be performed under general anaesthetic and can be completed within an hour. Our team of facilitators at Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is available to answer any questions you may have regarding the operation and the aftercare. They will provide you with the instructions you need to follow to prepare for the surgery and help you to determine what cosmetic procedure would best suit your individual needs.
Breast augmentation is performed on an outpatient basis and a patient will be able to return home on the day of the surgery. It is normal to experience some swelling and discomfort in the days after the surgery, but a patient should be able to return to work within two weeks. Patients are advised to refrain from strenuous activity for at least a month and follow-up appointments with a medical practitioner are required to ensure that wounds are healing properly. Pain medication will be prescribed to treat any discomfort and it is important to ensure that you consult a medical professional if any excessive pain or bleeding occurs.
