Many young women dream of enlarging their breasts. Modern medicine can help you make this dream come true by getting breast implants.

Breast surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures today. The number of women who want to have their breasts surgically enlarged is growing exponentially.

Breast augmentation with implants is a major surgical procedure. As a rule, it is performed using general anesthesia. Sometimes local anesthesia is added to ensure a patient’s comfort.

Methods of implant placement

  1.  An implant is inserted through an incision on the underside of the breast, where the natural fold occurs. It is the most popular and least traumatic technique. However, the scar may become more noticeable as a result of natural breast augmentation during pregnancy. That is why this method is not suitable for young women who are planning to have a baby.

  2.  An implant is inserted through an incision in the armpit. It is a more complex and traumatic technique resorted to in extreme cases. The surgery is performed using the endoscope. The scar will be on the inner arm.

  3.  Implants are inserted through an incision in the nipple area, around the areola. This method is suitable for breasts with large areolas. However, it can lead to loss of nipple sensitivity and problems with breastfeeding.

  4.  Saline implants are inserted through a small incision in the navel area. It is the most modern and lowest-impact method. Using the endoscope, the doctor places the implants inside the breasts, and then fills them with saline solution.

Implants are placed behind the pectoral muscle or behind the chest wall muscles. During the procedure, tube drainage is required. The tissues are connected with several rows of stitches (3-4); steristrips, antiseptic dressings and bandages are applied.

What determines the choice of implants and surgical methods?

  1.  Individual breast features.

  2.  Risk levels of possible implant leakage or rupture in the future.

  3.  Rehabilitation period.

  4.  Mammography results.

Antibacterials are prescribed to prevent the risk of post-surgery infection. The patient stays in hospital under medical supervision during the first 24 hours after the surgery. Tube drains are removed on the 3rd day after surgery. The patient needs to constantly wear an elastic bra for the first 4 weeks. After about 10 days, the stitches are removed or dissolve on their own.
