Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation, commonly referred to as breast enlargement or boob job, is performed to increase the fullness and projection of breasts, improve the balance of breasts and enhance self-image as well as confidence. This procedure can also restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy, achieve a more rounded breast shape or improve natural breast size asymmetry.

Studies have shown that silicone implants and saline implants are both safe. Also, having breast implants does not necessarily take away the patient’s ability to breastfeed but it depends on many factors regarding the patient’s case.

The fact that breast implants can help boost self-esteem, body image, and sexual satisfaction is proven by the statements of the patients who opted for the procedure. Additionally, a vast amount of patients state that they are happier with their bodies as a whole, not just the area on which they had the surgery done.

The implants may be placed above or below the muscle tissue in the patient’s breasts. The size of the patient’s implants, body type, health condition will all be a factor while deciding the positioning. There are four methods to place the breast implants.

The most common method called Infra-Mammary Incision is used to place the implants through an incision on the underside of the breast in the natural skin fold.

Trans-Axillary Incision method is used to place implants through an incision around the armpit. The surgeon may perform this surgery using an endoscope (a tool with a camera and surgical instruments at the end).

Peri-Areolar Incision method is used to place implants through an incision around the edge of the areola (the darkened area around the nipple).

Trans-Umbilical Incision method is used to place implants through an incision near your belly button. An endoscope is used to move the implant up to the breast area.

After making an incision, the surgeon separates the patient’s breast tissue from the muscles and connective tissue of their chest. This creates a pocket either behind or in front of the outermost muscle of the chest wall called pectoral muscle.

The surgeon inserts the implant into this pocket and centre it behind the patient’s nipple. Our doctors will be helping and guiding you throughout this process with every detail explained carefully.

  • Notify us as soon as possible if you develop an illness, such as a cold, prior to surgery.
  • Do not Smoke. Smoking is harmful to wound healing and increases the chance of complications. If you do smoke, you should inform your doctor and stop smoking for 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your surgery.

Post-Op Instructions

  • Expect to have less energy than usual. It’s a serious process and the overall effects can take more of a toll on your body than you might expect. You need to have patience and rest while your body heals.
  • For the first 10 days after the surgery, do not take certain medications. Please contact us for further information.
  • Only use your prescribed medications by your doctor and contact us if you need to ask anything else. Take your antibiotics until they are finished.

  • The anaesthesia may make you feel nauseated in the first couple of days. It is wise to drink liquids and eat mild foods during this time.
  • Scars may become reddened before they fade. This is a normal process, so be patient. However, it is not recommended for you to tan your scars in the first 9 months following the surgery, as they are more sensitive and may tan darker (and possibly permanently) than the surrounding skin.
  • You can not sleep on your stomach or sides for 6 weeks. Sleeping on your back is crucial for your breasts’ healing.
  • It is recommended for you to take showers, not have baths. You can start taking showers after the first 2-5 days, but make sure to dry your wounds very well.
