Breast Augmentation Surgeon

A breast augmentation procedure or enhancement, also known as a ‘boob job’, is a treatment that surgically alters the size and shape of your breasts. Breast implants come in all shapes and sizes so whether you want a subtle or more noticeable change this procedure could be right for you, providing you have thought about it carefully and consulted with a plastic surgeon.

Only a qualified cosmetic surgeon can determine whether breast augmentation is right for you, but providing you are fit and healthy and have realistic expectations of what can be achieved then surgery can be a great way of giving you more confidence in the way you look.

Before Breast Augmentation Surgery

Before making the decision to undergo breast augmentation, you should find out as much information as possible about the procedure, the surgeon and hospital you are being treated at.

Always discuss the procedure with your clinic or hospital first and then go away and think about it before making your decision. You should also have a consultation of at least an hour with your surgeon before going ahead. Do not be afraid to ask any questions and make sure all of your concerns are addressed before you sign on the dotted line. For more information on Breast Augmentation check Ubvvn

The most important thing is to make an informed decision that you feel confident about. During your consultation your surgeon should take a thorough medical history and give you a consent form to sign to make sure you fully understand the possible risks and complications. It is very important that you read this form carefully.

Preparing for breast augmentation surgery:

A. Avoid taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs for a period of 10 days before your surgery, because they cause the blood to thin and make surgery more dangerous.

B. Give up smoking at least two months before the procedure, as it increases the risks and can delay the healing process.

C. On the day of your breast augmentation surgery, you should wear loose-fitting clothes that can be removed and replaced easily.

You should also consider when, and if, you want to have children. If you are considering trying for children in the near future, it is advisable to wait before having surgery. Breast augmentation should not interfere with breast-feeding, but there is a risk of breast implant revision if you get pregnant after having implants. Pregnancy and breast-feeding can dramatically change the size and shape of your breasts so it may have an impact on the look of your implants.

During Breast Augmentation Surgery

During breast enlargement surgery, you will be put under general anesthetic while the surgeon makes the incisions and inserts the implants. The type and size or your implants and where the scars will be placed will have been discussed at your consultation. In some cases, you can have the operation done while you are awake, using a combination of a local anaesthetic and sedative.

Incisions are most commonly made under the breast using a technique called inframammary incision, so that the scars can be hidden in the natural skin fold beneath the breast. Implants can also be inserted through the nipple, known as periareolar incision, which creates a tiny scar around the edge of the pigmented area surrounding the nipple.

In the case of saline implants, they can also be inserted through the armpit, known as transaxillary incision or belly button, known as the TUBA technique, although this technique is not commonly used in the UK.

The implants can either be placed under the muscle, known as submuscular, or on top of the muscle just behind the breast tissue, known as subglandular. Benefits of submuscular placement may include decreased risk of capsular contracture and less interference with mammography.

However, breast implant surgery with subglandular placement can take less recovery time and may involve a lesser amount of post-operative pain.

The operation usually takes between one and two hours but can be as little as 40 minutes. Nowadays breast augmentation does not usually involve an overnight stay in hospital so you will be able to go home the same day.
