Breast augmentation (Augmentation Mammaplasty)
Breast augmentation involves placing the breast implant behind the sub-glandular breast tissue or behind the pectoralis major muscle.
Slimmer patients usually are best suited to placement of the implant under the muscle so that its upper edge is inconspicuous.
Anatomically or round shaped implants are filled with gel-like silicone and are available in various sizes. Manufacturers include the following companies: Mentor, McGhan, Nagor.
The incisions are made in the crease under the breast or periareolarly. The cut in the crease allows for natural breast feeding after the surgery. The size and type of implants used depend on the mutual decision of the patient and the surgeon. For the most part it is determined by the patient's anatomy, condition and size of the breasts, understanding the limitations and possible complications after the enlargements, planned long-term best possible surgery outcome.
