Why Breast Augmentation?
You may feel that your breasts are too small. Your breast size may not be proportional to the rest of your body. You may want to balance breast size and shape.Or you may want to improve contour and fullness following pregnancy, breast-feeding, and/or weight-loss.
Which Implant Placement?Implants can be placed under the breast tissue or under the chest wall muscle.
Implants under the muscle have a more natural shape and a lower chance of hardening. However, if you do a lot of upper-body gym work, implants are best placed under the breast.
Breast implant placement may depend on the amount of breast tissue available to hide the implant. If you have minimal breast tissue, you may benefit from under-the-muscle placement. This may provide more cover, preventing visible rippling.
Which Incision?Implants can be placed through an incision under the areola, in the crease under the breast, or via the armpit.
The incision placement may be influenced by your clothing preferences, the shape of the implant, and/or the size and placement of the implant. A visible scar concern may influence your choice.
Which Type Implant?At CE our preferred implants are Allergan Natrelle and Mentor. Both are premium silicone gel implants.
Silicone implants have been shown to be biocompatible, reliable, flexible, and easy to sterilise.
Saline implants, which are filled with salt water rather than elastic gel, can be associated with rippling that can be seen through the skin.
Silicone implants can offer a more natural, breast-like result. Their casing can have a smooth or textured surface. We offer both surface options.
Textured implants are said to minimise the scar tissue that forms around them, which may cause hardening. They are also associated with reduced implant movement.
Smooth implants are said to be more natural to the touch and less likely to cause visible rippling.
Which Implant Shape?Shapes vary from round to tear-drop shape.
Round are available in low and high profile.
Tear-drop are available in various widths, heights, projections, and sizes.
Round implants are more suited to patients who are happy with their breast shape but are looking for a size increase. They give more upper-pole fullness to your breasts.
Tear-drop implants give a much more natural shape to the breast. The more projected lower-half lifts the nipple. These implants may be more suited to patients with slightly droopy breast associated with post-pregnancy, breast-feeding, and/or weight-loss.
During a private consultation, your doctor will help you select the most optimal implant depending on your chest size and breast base measurements.
Price may vary based on patient and procedure. Remember, any surgery carries risks. Individual results may vary. As part of your careful planning, consider that breast augmentation is a life-long commitment.
|Procedure Name||Breast Augmentation|
|Body Location (where procedure is performed):||Breast|
|How the Procedure is Performed:||
Step 1 Anaesthesia
Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.
Step 2 The incision
Incisions vary based on the type of breast implant, degree of enlargement desired, your particular anatomy and patient-surgeon preference.
6 weeks before surgery
During your breast augmentation recovery, your breasts will be wrapped in gauze dressings and an elastic bandage or support bra will minimsze swelling and support the breasts as they heal.
Once you have a firm idea about your desired look, your surgeon will go through the different surgical options with you to determine the best way to get your desired cosmetic result for your lifestyle.
There are many factors that affect what your breasts will look like after surgery. These include your natural anatomy, the location of the incisions and the type, size, shape, texture and placement of your implants.
