Breast augmentation can enhance the size of the breast as well as improve body proportions, correcting the loss of volume or shape that can be caused by weight loss, childbirth or aging. Surgery will be customized to your individual factors and personal preferences. Depending on what will work best for you, a breast lift may also be recommended.
Your surgeon will discuss with you the differences between non-cohesive silicone gel-filled, saline-filled and cohesive silicone gel implants. Your surgeon will also suggest implant placement and incision location, as every approach carries advantages and disadvantages. Once the appropriate incision is made, the implant will be inserted.
No hospitalization is required, and you can return to work within three to seven days. Discolouration or swelling will disappear quickly, with any residual swelling healing within a month.
It is important to keep in mind that generally, the larger the implant, the greater the risk of complications, including infection, reactions to anesthesia, and blood accumulation. An infection may require temporary removal of the implant, although this is rare. Changes in nipple or breast sensation are usually only temporary.
As a result of the surgery, your body will form a lining around the implant, which may tighten and compress it, causing the breast to feel firmer than normal. This is a natural reaction that is to be expected. Only if this causes discomfort or changes the breast's appearance will more surgery be considered to modify or remove the lining or implant.
You must also consider that breast implants can make it more difficult to read mammograms, and so your surgeon will discuss cancer detection with you. As they are not lifetime devices, surgery may be required at some point to replace your implants.
