Breast Enlargement

Increasing the size of the breasts by surgical insertion of breast implants is called breast augmentation. Augmentation Mammaplasty is typically performed to enlarge small breasts or breasts that have decreased in size after a woman has had children. It is accomplished by surgically inserting an implant behind each breast.Breast implants are safe and there is no evidence to suggest they cause breast cancer or other diseases. Your surgeon will be able to discuss this further at the time of the consultation.

The surgery is done under a general anaesthetic. Three types of incisions can be made for this surgery.Usually an incision is made either under the breast, around the areola (the pigmented skin surrounding the nipple), or in the armpit. A pocket is created for the implant either behind the breast tissue or behind the muscle between the breast and the chest wall.The implant is inserted in the pocket and the pocket is closed.

Following surgery, you will wear a gauze dressing or surgical bra. Post surgery, there maybe some restriction of vigorous activities especially lifting heavy objects. Most women can go back to work in one week and to normal activities in about 2-3 weeks. This will also depend on your general level of fitness and the type of job you do.
The most common of the known risks associated with breast implants is capsular contracture, a tightening of scar tissue around the implant, which results in varying degrees of breast firmness and may cause pain or changes in the breast's appearance. Other known risks include implant rupture (deflation of a saline-filled implant) and temporary or permanent changes in nipple or breast sensation. Traditionally, breast implants have been round and work by adding volume to the breasts. However a new variety called anatomical of teardrop shaped implants are also now available which give more natural shape to the breasts.

Fat Grafting for Breast Augmentation
Fat taken from the patient's own body is the latest procedure for adding volume to the breasts. Fat is generally taken from the patient's tummy, thighs or buttocks by liposuction,processed and transferred to the breast. It is more natural than implants and can also be used to fill in defects post breast reconstruction. Fat grafting can be used in conjunction with implants to add volume & shape to breasts .The fat grafting is a good procedure for correcting the asymmetry in size of both breasts .Dr Anup Dhir has extensive experience in fat grafting and it is being routinely done at Image Medical Centre.
