Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation is technically known as “augmentation mammoplasty,” breast augmentation is designed to surgically enhance breast size with breast implants. It can correct a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy, help balance a difference in size, or implemented as a reconstructive technique following breast surgery. Breast enhancement can be performed using either saline or silicone-gel implants, depending on a variety of factors. Sometimes, breast augmentation can be performed in conjunction with or as an alternative to the breast lift procedure.

Duration of the surgery:

Surgery time is 1 hour or more.

Hospital/clinic admission:

Anesthesia Used:

Local with Sedation

Side Effects:

Temporary soreness, swelling, change in nipple sensation and bruising. Breast sensitive to stimulation for several weeks.

To speed recovery and ensure the skin contours nicely to your newly enhanced shape, we recommend you follow our regimen of all natural supplements.

Risks and possible complications:

Lack of implant permanence – surgical removal or replacement of the implants (commonly known as breast implant revision) may be required to treat problems, including: deflation; the formation of scar tissue around the implant (known as capsular contracture), which may cause the breast to feel tight or hard; bleeding or infection. Increase or decrease in sensitivity of nipples or breast skin, occasionally permanent. Mammography may require a special technique. (Note: If you have any special concerns regarding the recent FDA approval, be sure to consult a medical professional.)

Surgery results

Surgery result is variable. Breast implants may eventually require removal or replacement.
