What is Breast Augmentation?

Also known as breast enlargement, a breast augmentation can improve the fullness of your breasts and provide a curvier look to them. Although there are many ways to augment the breasts, the most common way is to create a pocket under the breast tissue and place a breast implant into that pocket. A breast enlargement operation is done under either local or general anaesthetic.

Types of Breast Augmentation

· Implants
Implants can increase and restore breast size and enhance the shape and texture of the breasts. With implants, people with small breasts can achieve more symmetric, attractive and voluminous breasts. After a close assessment, the most suitable implant type, size and incision location will be recommended.

· Fat Graft/Fat Transfer Method
A breast augmentation using a fat graft involves the harvesting of unnecessary fat from your chosen area (usually from the abdomen or thigh) and transferring it to your breasts. Instead of placing implants in the breasts, the fat transfer or fat graft method can provide a safer and more natural appearance.

Q1: Which anesthesia is used for this procedure?
A1: Either sedation or general anesthesia can be used.

Q2: My breasts are unshapely after undergoing a mastectomy: Should I undergo a breast implant procedure?
A2: Typically, a breast reconstruction procedure is chosen by those who have undergone a mastectomy.

Q3: What are the advantages of the different locations for implant insertions?
A3: The subglandular insertion is known for preventing muscle movement from affecting the implant. The submuscular insertion is known for better concealment of the implant. The subfascial insertion is known for preventing the implant from rotating and retaining symmetry even when muscles contract.

Q4: What are the advantages of the different incision locations?
A4: The armpit incision is known for its barely visible incision marks. The areola incision is known for allowing a direct view of the surgical site, which permits the surgeon to be careful and precise when inserting the implant. It also allows for the surgeon to handle the breast tissue directly for better implant adaptation. The breast fold incision is known for its shorter surgery time and faster recovery period. However, scars may be visible if the lower part of the breast is exposed.
