Breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance and feel of your breasts. It typically involves the placement of silicone gel or saline implants under your breast tissue or the chest muscle.
There are many reasons why you might choose to have breast augmentation surgery. For example, you may be unhappy with your natural breast size or shape. You may want to restore the volume of your breasts after weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. Or you may simply want to improve your self-image and confidence.

Implants are available in a variety of sizes, shapes, and materials. Your surgeon will help you choose the best option for your body type and desired results.
Fat grafting is another option for breast augmentation. In this procedure, fat is removed from another area of your body via liposuction and injected into your breasts. This can give you a more natural look and feel and avoid the potential complications associated with implants.
A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, involves removing of excess breast tissue and skin to raise and reshape sagging breasts. Breast lift surgeries are sometimes combined with breast implants to add volume and achieve a more youthful appearance.

Saline and silicone breast implants are the two most common types. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water, whereas silicone implants are filled with gel. Both types of implants have silicone outer shells.
Smooth implants have a smooth outer shell that allows them to move freely within the implant pocket. This can give the breasts a more natural look and feel.
Textured implants have a rougher outer surface that helps to keep them in place. This can give the breasts a more firm feel.
Teardrop-shaped implants are wider at the bottom than at the top and are designed to give the breasts a more natural shape. Round implants are uniform in shape and can give the breasts more fullness.
High-profile implants are narrower and taller than moderate or low-profile implants. They can provide more fullness to the upper part of the breasts. Moderate-profile implants are wider than high-profile implants but not as wide as low-profile implants. They offer a good balance of fullness to the upper and lower parts of the breasts.
Low-profile implants are the widest type of implants, providing more fullness to the lower part of the breasts.
When it comes to breast implants, there are two main types of materials that are used: silicone and saline. Both have their specific benefits and drawbacks, so it’s important to know the difference between the two before making a decision.
Silicone implants are made of a gel material that closely resembles human fat. They tend to feel more natural than saline implants and are less likely to cause rippling or wrinkling of the skin. However, silicone implants are also more expensive than saline, and there is a small risk that they could leak or rupture.
Saline implants are made of a sterile saltwater solution. They are less expensive than silicone implants, and there is no risk of leakage or rupture. However, saline implants can sometimes cause rippling or wrinkling of the skin, and they may not feel as natural as silicone implants.
Which type of implant is right for you? Ultimately, the decision comes down to personal preference and your budget.
During your breast augmentation surgery, your surgeon will make incisions in your breasts and create a pocket for the implant. They will then insert the implants into the pockets and close the incisions. The entire procedure usually takes about 1-2 hours to complete.
In most cases, general anesthesia will be used during the surgery. This means that you will be asleep for the duration of the procedure. After the surgery, you will be taken to a recovery room, where you will be closely monitored. You will likely feel groggy and experience some pain and swelling after the surgery. These effects will usually subside within a few days.
You will need to take it easy for the first few days after the surgery, but you should be able to return to your normal activities within a week or so.
There are four main types of breast implant incisions: inframammary, periareolar, transaxillary, and umbilical.
The location of the incision will be determined by your surgeon based on several factors, such as the type of implants being used, the size of the implants, your desired results, and your anatomy.
A transaxillary incision is made in the crease of the armpit. The surgeon will then create a pocket for the implant and insert it through the incision. This type of incision leaves no visible breast augmentation scars.
An inframammary incision is made in the crease beneath the breast. The surgeon will then create a pocket for the implant and insert it through the incision. This type of incision leaves a small scar that is hidden beneath the breast.
An areolar incision is made around the edge of the areola. The surgeon will then create a pocket for the implant and insert it through the incision. This type of incision leaves a small scar hidden within the border of the areola.
A trans-umbilical breast augmentation (TUBA) is a type of surgery that is done through an incision in the navel. The surgeon will then create a pocket for the implant and insert it through the incision. This type of surgery leaves no visible scars on the breast.
After your breast augmentation surgery, you will be taken to a recovery room, where you will be closely monitored. You will likely feel groggy and experience some pain and swelling after the surgery. These effects usually subside within a few days and may be managed with oral pain medication.
You will need to take it easy for the first few days after the surgery, but you should be able to return to your normal activities within a week. However, following your surgeon’s instructions during your breast augmentation recovery is important to reduce the risk of complications.
