Breast augmentation surgery sometimes referred to as a ‘boob job’ by patients, involves using breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of your breasts.
Also known as bilateral augmentation mammoplasty, breast enlargement or breast implants.
What breast augmentation surgery achieves:
You are most likely a good candidate for this procedure if:
An implant can be placed either directly behind the breast tissue (subglandular or subfascial), or more deeply under the pectoralis major muscle (submuscular or subpectoral) or using a combination of the above (dual plane technique).
There are two types of Breast Implants:
Fourth generation silicone implants are the best breast implants which are used by our team
Patients also have a choice of:
We would normally see patients for two consultations, to ensure that their aesthetic goals are met with respect to shape and size.
The woman with breast implants is able to breast-feed her infant; yet breast implant devices occasionally cause functional breast-feeding difficulties, especially the mammoplasty procedures that feature periareolar incisions and subglandular emplacement, which have greater incidences of breast-feeding difficulties.
Surgery is performed under a general anaesthetic and is normally performed as a day case procedure. Patients are discharged home after surgery on oral pain relief and seen for post-operative reviews at 24 hours and seven days after the procedure. Patients are requested to avoid vigorous physical activity and wear a support bra for a period of at least six weeks after surgery.
It is possible to combine a breast augmentation with a mastopexy (breast lift). This is a common procedure that is used to correct the loss of volume and the sagging breastfeedingd with the changes that occur during breast-feeding (lactation).
The advantage of combining the procedures is that it may reduce the costs and it is also possible to reduce the size, length and number of scars involved. Not all cases are suitable to undergo a combined procedure.
It may be necessary to perform the mastopexy three months prior to performing an augmentation. When a combined procedure is performed, only a moderate projection implant can usually be employed. Furthermore, it is very difficult to perform the surgery as a single stage procedure if very large implants are used.
When a combined procedure is performed, only a moderate projection implant can usually be employed. Furthermore, it is very difficult to perform the surgery as a single stage procedure if very large implants are used. The mastopexy scar may be a circular scar around the nipple (periareolar), a circumvertical scar which is a lollipop type scar with the scar running around the circumference of the nipple with an extension running from the nipple to below the breast fold.
In extreme cases, it may be necessary to employ an anchor pattern scar (or Wise pattern) which consists of a circular scar around the nipple, a vertical scar from the nipple which connects with a small horizontal scar running underneath the breasts. The breast implant may be able to be inserted through any of the above three types of scars.
Dr Rajesh Gawai, Dr. Vinay Jacob and Dr. Giovanna Spinzo are acknowledged as best plastic surgeons for breast implants. They have achieved incredible desired results for many a patient. This has been significantly relevant in the context of the difficult and tuberous breast volume and shape enhancement.
