  • What is Breast Augmentation Surgery?

    Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to increase the size and improve the shape of breasts. It is one of the most commonly requested and performed cosmetic surgery worldwide.  Often referred to as a “boob job,” breast enlargement surgery can be done for medical as well as functional reasons. 

    While the cosmetic aspect of the treatment focuses on improving the shape and size of the breasts to enhance the feminine features, the medical aspect emphasizes correcting congenital defects of the breasts and chest wall and reconstructing the breasts after mastectomy. 

    Breast augmentation surgery can be done in two ways- breast implants and fat-graft mammoplasty. Almost 90% of breast augmentation surgeries are performed using breast implants. Only 10% of cases use fat transfer for breast augmentation, which involves taking fat from one body part and injecting it into the breasts. As it is a major surgical procedure, the decision to undergo breast augmentation surgery should be made after careful consideration and consultation with a qualified and experienced plastic or cosmetic surgeon.

    Types of Breast Augmentation

    Breast Augmentation is of two types- the first one is breast implants, and the second is fat transfer augmentation. In both types, there are different treatment options based on how you want your breasts to look. The right type of augmentation is suggested by the doctor after a detailed discussion.

    Fat Transfer for Breast Augmentation

    This type of augmentation leverages the liposuction technique to take fat from other body parts and inject it directly into the breasts. This method is usually recommended for a woman who wishes to increase her breast size to a small extent. The fat tissues are taken from the belly, flanks, back, or thighs. 

    Breast Implants

    The most popular type of breast augmentation is breast implants. In this method, an implant is inserted behind each breast to increase the cup size and enhance its shape. The breast implants can be placed by using one of the following types of incisions-

    • Inframammary Fold or Sub-pectoral Incision- This incision is made underneath the breasts to allow the surgeon to place the implant precisely. It has minimal effects on the milk-producing glands. 
    • Trans-axillary Incision- This incision is made in the armpit or axilla to insert the implant. The placement is done either above or below the pectoral muscle. The correct and symmetrical placement of implants is more difficult with this incision. 
    • Peri-Areolar Incision- This incision is made around the nipple, i.e., the edges of the areola. Women who receive peri-areolar augmentation have more difficulty in breastfeeding. It is generally used for women who have small breasts without any fold. 
    • Trans Umbilical Breast Augmentation (TUBA)– It is a newer approach in which the incision is made on the belly button to insert the implant. This type of incision is made when subglandular saline implants are used to augment the breast size.

    What happens in Breast Augmentation?

    On the day of surgery, the patient is admitted to the hospital and asked to sign the consent form before proceeding. The steps of the procedure will vary for each patient, depending on the technique chosen. The general steps involved are explained below:

    The entire procedure takes 1-2 hours approximately and is performed on an outpatient basis. It means the patient is likely to be discharged on the same day after surgery. In some cases, the surgeon may suggest an overnight stay for patients who are at high risk of developing infection or other complications.

    Who Can Consider Breast Augmentation?

    Undergoing breast augmentation surgery is a personal decision and is suitable for individuals who are dissatisfied with the size, shape, or volume of their breasts and wish to enhance their appearance. There is no one-size-fits-all answer to who can consider the surgery. Some common reasons why people may opt for breast augmentation include the following:

    • Small Breast Size: Some individuals may have naturally small breasts that they feel are out of proportion with the rest of their body, and they desire a fuller and more proportionate breast appearance.
    • Loss of Breast Volume: After pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women experience a decrease in breast volume. They can consider surgery to restore the fullness and shape of the breasts. 
    • Asymmetry: Generally, breasts are asymmetrical. However, in some individuals, the asymmetry is very clear, and one breast is noticeably larger or differently shaped than the other breast. This symmetry can be corrected with breast augmentation surgery. 
    • Lack of Confidence: For some individuals, the small size of the breasts may affect their self-confidence and body image negatively. Breast augmentation surgery can help to improve their self-esteem and confidence. 
    • Breast Reconstruction: Women who have had a mastectomy(breast removal surgery) on one or both sides can consider undergoing breast augmentation surgery to reconstruct the breasts and restore their natural appearance.

    It’s important to discuss the goals and expectations of breast augmentation surgery with the surgeon to understand its risks, benefits, and other aspects clearly.

    Diagnosis & Evaluations Before Breast Augmentation

    A thorough diagnosis and evaluation are done during initial consultations to determine whether breast augmentation surgery is suitable for the individual. During the evaluations, the plastic/cosmetic surgeon discusses the patient’s aesthetic goals, medical history, previous surgeries, allergies, and other medications and supplements that they take on a regular basis. 

    The surgeon also conducts a comprehensive physical exam by palpating the breasts and chest wall to assess the breast size, shape, skin quality, and nipple position. The surgeon will also take detailed measurements of the breasts, such as width, height, nipple-to-breast fold distance, etc., to determine the most suitable technique and/or size of the implant. For further evaluation, the surgeon may also recommend the following tests:

    After confirming that the individual is healthy, the surgeon will use imaging software to create a 3D simulation of the breasts before and after augmentation. This will help the patient to choose the right size and shape of the implant to get the desired outcome. 

    *Note: Besides health assessment, the surgeon also does a psychological evaluation to confirm the individual is in a good state of mind and choosing to undergo surgery for the right reasons. Patients with healthy mindsets are more likely to be satisfied with the outcome of the surgery. 

    How to prepare for the breast augmentation surgery?

    The plastic surgeon will give detailed instructions to prepare the patient for breast augmentation surgery. The standard preparation involves the following steps- 

    The doctor’s staff usually contacts the patient to ensure that all preoperative instructions are followed. If not, the surgery may be delayed as needed. 

    If everything goes right, the surgery will be planned accordingly, and the doctor’s staff will provide further instructions for the day of the surgery. These instructions will include- 

    Along with taking care of the above-mentioned things, it will be better if the patient prepares the home recovery area prior to the surgery. This includes buying the prescribed pain medications, ointment for incisions, clean gauze to cover the incisions, and loose & comfortable clothes to wear.

    What to Expect After Breast Augmentation?

    Immediately after the breast augmentation surgery, the patient can expect to feel slightly disoriented, numb, and sore due to the side effects of anesthesia. The nurses will constantly monitor the patient’s vitals to ensure they are stable. 

    The breasts will be covered with bandages, and there will be bruising, swelling, and redness in the treated area after the procedure. These are temporary side effects of surgery that can be managed by medications and proper post-op care. Some discomfort and mild to moderate pain are also common after breast augmentation. 

    On the day of surgery, the patient is advised to take complete bed rest and avoid all activities. Before discharge, the patient is given detailed care instructions and diet tips for a smooth and faster recovery. A follow-up schedule is also given to the patient to monitor the recovery.

    Breast Augmentation Risks & Potential Complications

    While breast augmentation surgery is generally safe, like any other surgical procedure, it carries certain risks and complications. It is important for individuals to understand these potential complications to make an informed decision about proceeding with the surgery. Some common risks and complications associated with breast augmentation surgery are:

    The surgeon usually takes the necessary measures to prevent these complications from arising. If the patient notices any sign of post-op complications, it is advised to consult the doctor as soon as possible.

    Benefits of Breast Augmentation Surgery

    Breast augmentation offers several benefits, both cosmetic and psychological, for individuals who choose to undergo the procedure. Some of the key benefits of breast augmentation include:

    Recovery & Results After Breast Augmentation Surgery

    The results of breast augmentation surgery are visible right after the procedure. But there may be significant bruising and swelling around the area which may take several weeks to subside. Thus, the patient won’t be able to see the results clearly until then. Generally, the recovery will take around 4 to 6 weeks, but the breast implants will take some additional time to settle. Due to this, the patient may need to see the final results within 6 to 8 weeks after breast augmentation.

    The recovery timeline will be as below: 

    In the upcoming weeks, the scar will also start to fade away, and the breasts will settle into their new shape and size. Throughout the recovery period, it’s important for the patients to stay in touch with the surgeon and clear all their doubts and concerns regarding physical activities, diet, and lifestyle.

    Dos & Don’t After Breast Augmentation

    To achieve the desired results from breast augmentation, the patients will have to follow the surgeon’s instructions strictly for a smooth and optimal recovery. Some common instructions regardings dos and don’ts after the surgery are given below:

    Other Options to Increase the Breast Size

    Some other non-surgical options that you can consider to increase the breast size include the following-

    Case Study

    Mrs. Stuti Sharma(name changed) contacted us to get a breast augmentation procedure and booked an appointment with Dr. Devidutta Mohanty. She went for a consultation and had a thorough discussion about the procedure. The doctor also recommended some tests to ensure that Mrs. Stuti was completely healthy for the procedure.

    In the following consultation, Dr. Devidutta Mohanty evaluated the results of the diagnostic tests and determined the peri-areolar technique for the breast augmentation procedure. He scheduled the surgery after twelve days and gave some guidelines to get prepare for the surgery. The surgery took place as scheduled. The entire procedure took around 2 hours to complete. 

    Once the surgery was finished, she was shifted to the recovery room and kept under observation, where all her vitals were monitored thoroughly by the doctor. Mrs. Stuti was discharged on the same day. Her follow-up consultation was scheduled a week later. She showed substantial recovery. After a month, she came again for the follow-up consultation and said that she felt satisfied with the increased size after breast augmentation surgery.

    Breast Augmentation/Implant Cost In India

    On average, breast augmentation surgery cost in India is around Rs. 1,00,000 to Rs. 1,50,000. It is an estimated cost range that varies from one patient to another due to various factors, such as:

    While making the decision to undergo breast augmentation surgery, it’s important that the individual prioritizes the quality of care and the surgeon’s experience instead of the cost of surgery to get the best results. 

    Is Breast Augmentation Covered Under Insurance?

    Breast augmentation surgery is typically considered an elective cosmetic procedure, and insurance companies don’t offer coverage for cosmetic surgeries. Thus, it’s not covered by health insurance when the surgery is solely performed for aesthetic purposes and does not address any medical concern.

    However, there are certain scenarios where breast augmentation surgery is eligible for insurance coverage, such as:

    It’s essential for patients to review their insurance policy and talk to their insurance provider to understand the coverage for breast augmentation surgery.

    Difference Between Breast Augmentation & Breast Implant Surgery

    Breast augmentation and breast implants are related procedures used synchronously for cosmetic breast enhancement, but there are several differences between the two- 

    In summary, breast augmentation is a broader term that encompasses various techniques that are used to enhance the appearance of the breasts, including breast implants. 

    Non-Surgical Breast Augmentation Techniques

    There are numerous non-surgical methods available to increase breast size, including diet, exercise, creams, pills, supplements, etc. These non-surgical breast augmentation methods may or may not work for all individuals. Therefore, before trying the below-discussed methods, it’ll be best to talk to a healthcare professional to ensure they are safe and suitable. 

    Increase Breast Size With Foods 

    There are numerous foods available that can be helpful to augment breast size naturally. Diet plays a major role in elevating the estrogen levels in the body, which results in the growth of breast tissues. Some common foods that are high in estrogen are given below:

    Exercises to Increase Breast Size

    Exercise doesn’t have a direct impact on breast size. They only affect the pectoral muscles which make the breasts appear larger and firmer. Some common exercises to enhance the breast shape and size naturally are:

    Remember that exercises alone will not do the trick, and the individual will have to combine exercises with a healthy diet rich in estrogen to increase breast size. And even after that, there are still possibilities that the individual may not get the desired results. 

    Supplements, Pills, & Cream to Increase Breast Size

    There are numerous supplements, creams, and pills available in the market and online platforms that claim to provide bigger breasts size to women. These pills and supplements claim to contain herbs that boost estrogen levels and increase breast size. Some common products available for use are:

    It should be noted that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) hasn’t approved any breast enhancement or augmentation product. Furthermore, the safety and effectiveness of these products are also questionable. An individual should consult a medical professional before trying out these products as they can sometimes lead to negative effects, such as headaches, indigestion, vaginal bleeding, breast tenderness, bloating, etc.

    Home Remedies for Breast Augmentation

    Some methods to try for breast augmentation at home include the following: 

    FAQ Around Breast Augmentation

    How long does breast augmentation last?

    The implants used for breast augmentation generally have a lifetime of 10-20 years. It means the treatment is likely to last that long. However, you should not plan to keep the implants longer than that.

    What is the difference between breast augmentation and breast implants?

    The only difference between breast augmentation and a breast implant is that the former is the procedure to enhance breast size, and the latter is the mechanism through which the size is increased.

    Is breast augmentation painful?

    The surgery itself is not painful at all, as general anesthesia is used during the procedure. The patient is asleep the entire team, and before waking up, pain medications are given through the IV.

    Is it possible to increase the size of breasts without implants?

    Yes, it is possible to increase breast size without using implants. The fat transfer technique is used for that. Fat from a different part of the body is transferred to the breasts to increase their size.

    What are the side effects of breast augmentation?

    Some common side effects of breast augmentation are- 

    • Breast pain 
    • Infection 
    • Changes in nipple and breast sensation

    What are the different shapes of breast implants?

    Breast implants come in various shapes, and the most common shapes are round and teardrop. Round implants are symmetrical and provide fullness in both the upper and lower parts of the breasts. Teardrop implants have a tapered shape, and they mimic the naturally sloping contours of the breasts.

    Can I breastfeed with breast augmentation?

    Yes, breast augmentation typically does not interfere with a woman’s ability to breastfeed. The surgery usually involves placing the implants behind the breast tissues or chest muscles, leaving the milk ducts and glands unaffected. However, there is a risk of damage to the milk ducts in the case of the periareolar incision technique. Therefore, it’ll be best to discuss this possibility with the doctor beforehand while planning the surgery. 

    When can I return to work or other activities after breast augmentation?

    You can return to work and normal activities within 7 to 10 days after breast augmentation surgery. Most patients can resume light activities within one or two weeks, but strenuous activities need to be avoided for at least 4 to 6 weeks or longer if necessary. The surgeon will guide the patient to resume activities according to their specific healing progress.

    What is the fastest way to recover from breast augmentation?

    There is no shortcut to recovering faster after breast augmentation. As long as the patients take prescribed medications, eat a healthy diet, wear the supportive bra, get plenty of rest, and follow the surgeon’s instructions, the recovery will be smooth, and they will be able to recover very quickly without developing any complications.
