Augment the size and shape of your breasts
In this procedure breast size is enhanced by the use of implants (usually gel or silicone based). Implants can be used to return the breast to normal size during reconstructive surgery.
Augmentation can also be used to correct an imbalance in size between breasts.
The procedure usually takes between one and two hours.
Augmentation is carried out under a general anaesthetic. Various techniques are used to reduce visible scaring from the procedure: Implants may be introduced under the armpit or through the areola; another common technique is to make an incision under the breast allowing the breast itself to hide any scaring. Yet another technique allows the surgeon to use an endoscopic procedure, with the implant brought in through the navel area.
Commonly, patients can return to normal activity within a week, with strenuous activity possible within four weeks. Temporary bruising and swelling are part of the recovery process and vary from patient to patient, all signs will usually be gone within six months. Scarring will result from any incision but will fade over time. Recovery is faster in healthy fit individuals who refrain from smoking.
Implants are liable to deflation, which will require the operation to be repeated. The procedure may result in a change of sensitivity of the skin and nipples. Capsular contraction, which is the formation of scar tissue around the implant, results in a hardening of the breast and can cause infection or bleeding.
