A breast enlargement (augmentation) procedure is performed by inserting a breast implant behind a woman’s natural breast tissue. The inserted implant projects the natural breast tissue forward, giving a fuller appearance. The augmentation procedure is performed on women within a broad age range who wish to enhance their breast size and shape for the following reasons:
- Dissatisfaction with their original breast size
- A desire to regain or improve breast shape and size following significant weight loss or child birth
- A wish to correct uneven breasts (asymmetry)
- Correction of a congenital deformity of one or both breasts
Breast implant surgery can provide both physical and psychological benefits. Patients who have undergone this procedure report that they feel more feminine and confident with their new body image.
Breast enlargement surgery is generally performed under general anaesthesia. The procedure takes around one hour to perform and patients typically stay in hospital for one night to recover.
Breast augmentation surgery is performed by making a fine incision in the crease-line beneath the breast itself, through the armpit, or around the underside of the nipple area. Implants can be positioned in one of two places within the breast cavity:
The two potential sites are:
- In front of the chest muscle. This route is typically chosen when a patient has sufficient skin and breast tissue to give good natural looking coverage over the breast implant.
- Behind the chest muscle. This route is typically chosen when a patient has insufficient skin and breast tissue to give a natural looking coverage over the breast implant.
