A Breast Augmentation procedure usually involves the use of saline or silicone implants: medical prosthetics with a solid silicone shell, filled with either saline or silicone. Our highly trained and experienced staff will make an incision underneath the breast, around the nipple, or even in the armpit, and implant the prosthetic above or below the pectoral muscle. The incisions are then sutured. This procedure takes between 1-2 hours and is performed under a general anesthetic.
ADVANTAGES OF SALINE BREAST IMPLANTS
Saline breast implants can be filled during surgery, which allows for a smaller scar. Saline breast implants are also less expensive than silicone breast implants.
ADVANTAGES OF SILICONE BREAST IMPLANTS
Silicone implants are lighter and feel more natural than saline breast implants.
RESULTS AND AFTERCARE
Breast augmentation usually takes few days. However, our highly skilled surgeons are specialized in 24 Hour Recovery Breast Augmentation Technique, which means that our team uses every tool and technique at their disposal to minimize inflammation, bruising and tissue trauma. Patients can usually return to work in a day, although they must wear a special support bra for some days following the surgery.
Although breast implants do not expire, patients should be prepared to have a revision surgery at some point in their life. This is because in some cases, the body will recognize the implant as a foreign body and attempt to wall it off with a membrane that may contract over time. This is called capsular contracture, and can make the implant feel hard. Breast implant rupture is also a possibility. Other risks that inevitably come with surgery include infection, inflammation, and noticeable scar formation. If this occurs, you may want to consider removing or replacing your breast implants, or booking a consultation with us.
During your consultation, our skilled surgeons can provide more detailed information about the risk of complications during or after breast augmentation.
