Women with small breasts often have low self-esteem and find it hard to come across with confidence in public. On the contrary, women with good breasts look confident as they walk. Objective of augmentation mammoplasty, or breast augmentation, is to enlarge small, underdeveloped breasts. The process is also used to restore a breast which has been removed or disfigured for any reason.
Dr. M.S.Venkatesh, among the most reputed plastic surgeons in India, uses sophisticated approach and attention to detail for breast augmentation surgery candidates. He is willing to provide complimentary consultation for patients who want to gather complete information on the breast augmentation procedure before moving on their plans about surgery in India.
Any healthy woman over 18 is a good candidate for the breast implant. However, if you have an active infection in any body part; currently pregnant or breastfeeding, you won’t be a good candidate. The infection has to be controlled and if you are breast-feeding then it has to be stopped before doing the procedure. A pre- operative mammogram is necessary to rule out any pathology. On average, the breast augmentation surgery lasts about one to two hours. You are first administered anesthesia. When it takes effect, the surgeon makes an incision in each breast to create pockets within your breast tissues. Markings are done in sitting or standing position. Implants will be positioned for optimal appearance and symmetry. Incisions are closed after the implant. You may be asked to put cold compresses on your breasts for the first 48 hours after surgery. There are several incision sites and it is for your surgeon to decide where to make it – under the arm (trans axillary), the belly button (trans umbilical), around the nipple (periareolar) and within the breast fold (inframammary). Your surgeon will take important decisions regarding the breast size, location of incisions and the placement of implants after discussing it with you and considering other factors.
A breast implant can be done in varied sizes, shapes and profiles to help women achieve a natural-looking physique. Silicone cohesive gel filled implants with texturized surface and high profile implants (US FDA Approved) implants are used. These provide a higher projection for a smaller volume. Moderate profile and low profile implants are also used in some situations when the woman does not prefer a high projection. These implants are durable and give a higher projection for a given volume as compared to normal profile implants. Your surgeon will take important decisions regarding the breast size, location of incisions and the placement of implants after discussing it with you and considering other factors.
