The breasts can lose volume and their shape can change after weight loss, childbirth or as a result of aging. Breast augmentation can enhance the size of the breast as well as give you a better proportioned figure. We 'll examine your breasts and take into consideration factors such as the size and shape of your breasts, the quality of your skin and the placement of your nipples. If your breasts are sagging, a breast lift may also be recommended.
All women have a risk of breast cancer, so a mammogram or an ultrasound must be took into consideration before surgery. After the procedure, MRI or ultrasound will be ideal to monitor the implants.
Implants are usually cohesive and can be placed under the pectoralis mayor muscle, between the muscle and the breast tissue or in combination of the above (dual plane). This decision has many advantages and disadvantages with each choice. The same goes for the choice of the possible incision location through which to place the implant. We 'll discuss implant placement location and location of the incision with you. Sometimes the breast augmentation can be combined with lipofiling before or after the initial procedure in order to correct the "rippling" (at the upper/inner pole) and optimize the result.
Breast augmentation is usually performed on one day surgery basis so it is important to arrange for someone to stay with you the first night following surgery. Individual factors and personal preferences will help you and us to determine your appropriate breast size and the location of incisions. Keep in mind that in general, the larger the implant, the greater the risk of complications.
