Breast Augmentation - Augmentation Mammoplasty

Do you feel self-conscious and depressed because your Breasts are Too Small or different sizes?  Maybe Breast Augmentation is the answer.

What is a Breast Augmentation?  Breast Augmentation (or Augmentation Mammoplasty) involves inserting an implant behind the breast to increase its size by one or more cup sizes.  You will be left with a scar - in the crease under the breast, around the nipple or under the armpit.  Scarring usually fades over time.

Breast Implants  A Breast Implant is a silicone shell filled with either silicone gel or saline - a salt water solution.   Silicone gel filled implants are currently under evaluation within approved studies. The implant may be places either under the breast tissue or under the chest wall muscle.

The operation is usually performed under a general anesthetic.  It can be performed on an outpatient basis or as an occasionally as inpatient - requiring a stay of a day or two.

Breast Augmentation Risks Breast Augmentation is a commonly performed and generally safe surgical procedure if performed by a suitably qualified surgeon.  As with any operation conducted under general anesthetic - there are risks and possible side effects or complications.

You should discuss with your surgeon what you are hoping to gain from the operation and be sure know what you can reasonably expect and that you understand the risks.

You should look for a specialist cosmetic surgeon operating at a suitable clinic or hospital and check they have appropriate qualifications and can provide evidence of successful procedures.
