What is Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Breast augmentation surgery, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to increase the size of the breasts. During this procedure, the surgeon puts breast implants under the breast tissues to make them look enhanced and enlarged.

This plastic surgery is performed to reconstruct the size and shape of the breasts. It improves the aesthetic appearance, makes the breasts look symmetrical, and fulfills the desired expectation of a patient to achieve a bigger breast size.

      What happens in Breast Augmentation?

      Diagnosis 

      To confirm that you can undergo breast augmentation surgery without major complications, the surgeon will recommend the following tests- 

      • Routine Blood & Urine Test– These tests are standard before all surgical procedures. The purpose of these tests is to examine the overall health of the individual, look for any signs of infection, or to find out if a specific organ is not functioning properly. 
      • Mammogram– A mammogram or mammography test is done to detect early signs of cancer in the breasts. 
      • ECG or Electrocardiography- This test is done to assess the chances of experiencing heart-related problems during breast augmentation. 
      • Chest X-ray- This test is done to identify if there is a heart or lung disease present that can increase the risks during breast augmentation surgery. 

      Procedure 

      Here is what you can expect during the breast augmentation surgery- 

       

      • The anesthetist will use local or general anesthesia to sedate the patient. 
      • Once the patient cannot feel the upper body, the plastic surgeon uses an inframammary, periareolar, or transaxillary incision depending on the shape and size of the breast implants required by the patient. 
      • There are two ways to insert the breast implant, either under the breast tissues (in front of the muscle) or behind the breast muscle (pectoral muscle). The placement of the implant is done based on the patient’s requirements. 
      • After the implants are placed accurately, the surgeon closes the incisions using dissolvable stitches. 
      • Drainage tubes are also placed in the incision site to ensure that the excess bodily fluid doesn’t get stored inside the body. 

      The entire procedure takes around 60 to 90 minutes and the patient is most likely discharged on the same day.

      How to prepare for the surgery?

      How to prepare for the surgery?

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

      • Get a blood test done. 
      • Adjust the current medications. 
      • Stop smoking and drinking alcohol.
      • Avoid taking blood thinners, anti-inflammatory drugs, herbal supplements, etc. 

      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- 

      • Take the regular medications as ordered by the primary care provider with a small sip of water. 
      • You may take your heart medicines, BP medicines, birth control pills, steroids, thyroid medicines, asthma medicines, etc. 
      • Avoid eating or drinking anything from midnight prior to the day of surgery. It includes all food items, such as water, milk, chewing gum, candies, coffee, juice, etc. 
      • Do not wear makeup, jewelry, dentures, contact lenses, or hearing aids as all of these will be removed while taking you to the operating room. 
      • Make sure that you arrange for someone to drive you home and stay with you for the first few nights after the surgery. 

      Along with taking care of the above-mentioned things, it will be better if you prepare your 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.

      Benefits of Breast Augmentation

      Benefits of Breast Augmentation

      Breast augmentation is a procedure that is beneficial for patients in multiple ways. Some of the key benefits are- 

      • Higher Self Esteem- Women who get breast implants often report that the procedure helped them to feel good about their bodies. Thus, their self-esteem improved. 
      • Long-lasting Results- The procedure has very long-lasting results, i.e., around 10 to 20 years. Most of the implants have longer durability, which means that the new appearance of the breasts will be the same for a long time. 
      • Improved Breast Symmetry- During breast augmentation, the surgeon often chooses the implants that will make the breasts symmetrical. 
      • Restore Perkiness After Multiple Pregnancies- Most women tend to lose volume after multiple pregnancies. Breast augmentation helps to restore fullness, thereby making the breasts look much better. 
      • New Wardrobe Options- With the new shape and size of the breasts after augmentation, you can try clothes with new styles. 
      • Younger Appearance- Age is one of the major factors due to which volume in the breasts is lost. Breast augmentation fixes that and makes the breasts look fuller and younger. 
      • Restore Breasts After Mastectomy- A breast augmentation can be done for cosmetic and reconstructive reasons. So, if a woman had her breasts removed due to some reason, augmentation can restore the breasts. 

      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

      Recovery & Results After Breast Augmentation Surgery

      Recovery & Results After Breast Augmentation Surgery

      The results of breast augmentation are visible right after the procedure. There may be some bruising and swelling around the area, which will subside in the next few days. You will be able to notice the difference in the shape and size of your breasts clearly. This might also improve your body image and self-esteem, giving you a confidence boost. But make sure that you keep realistic expectations from the procedure. 

      The complete recovery after breast augmentation surgery may take somewhere around 4-6 weeks. However, one can resume work after 10-12 days of surgery. In addition, the duration of the recovery may also vary based on the profession you are in. The surgeon will recommend a few instructions for faster and smooth recovery- 

      • Always lie on your back while sleeping. 
      • Eat a healthy diet enriched with vitamins, fiber, nutrients, and protein to promote the healing process. 
      • Always take your prescribed medication on time to minimize the chances of post-surgery complications.
      • Do consult your plastic surgeon if you feel or notice any odd symptoms during your recovery period.
      • Wear a compression bra for at least 2-3 weeks post-breast augmentation to support the breasts. 
      • Avoid smoking and consumption of alcohol during your recovery period.
      • Do not remove your bandage on your own unless recommended by your plastic surgeon.
      • Do not take a hot water bath or soak your body in hot water, as it can complicate the post-surgery recovery. 
      • Avoid doing strenuous activities for at least 3-4 weeks post-surgery or as advised by your plastic surgeon. 
      • Do not indulge in sexual activity for 3 weeks, at least after breast augmentation surgery.

      Types of Breast Augmentation Surgery

      Fat Transfer 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.

      Augmentation with 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.

      Other Options to Increase the Breast Size

      Other Options to Increase the Breast Size

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

      • Breast Exercise- By targeting the pectoral muscles, you will get firm and perkier breasts that will give the appearance of fuller breasts. 
      • Eat Foods That Affect the Breasts- There are some food items that are known to have phytoestrogen or plant estrogen. The estrogen hormone is responsible for the development of breasts. Increasing its intake will certainly improve the size of the breasts. Such food items are cashew, fennel, brown rice, white wine, oats, cucumber, green tea, carrots, plum, fenugreek, etc. Vitamin C will also help to make your breasts look bigger. 
      • Breast Massage- Massaging can also help to increase breast size by improving blood circulation in the chest region. Fenugreek oil is the best for massage.
      • Wear the Right Size of Bra- Wearing the right bra will ensure that your breasts stay in shape and don’t sag. You can also try wearing push-up bras that will make the breasts appear larger than they actually are.

      Case Study

      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.
