Most of us are scared of surgery just because they are unknown about the exact process. So here, we discuss all about breast augmentation and I am sure you will get all your doubts cleared after this.
What Do You Mean by Breast Augmentation?
This is a very common question almost every cosmetic surgeon must have heard millions of times. It is a clinical process where breast implants are placed below your breast to increase their size. There are various uses, apart from getting fullness, of the breast augmentation process –
- It helps you improve your self image if you are uncomfortable about your breast size.
- If you experience weight loss (after pregnancy or other reasons), it helps you restore your volume of the breasts.
- It is used to get better symmetry in both the breasts if the size varies due to any reason.
Breast size depends upon heredity and so if your mother has small breasts so will you. But the condition does not always need to remain the same. Breast implants help you reconstruct your breasts and you can enjoy fuller breasts with no problems.
However, a breast augmentation cannot help you if your breasts are severely drooping, surgery won’t be able to help you. In that case, you will be required to get breast lifting.
The procedure for breast augmentation involves an easy three-step process.
Step 1 – at first you will be given anesthesia. You can opt for either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia depending on your level of comfort.
Step 2 – Now you will be given small incisions and care is taken to make it less visible as possible. There are various incision options out of which, you would be required to opt for one. You can choose from inframammary incision, transaxillary or Periareolar incision.
Step 3 – now you will be given breast implants. Here also you have two options – silicone implants or saline implants. Take care to keep the shape of implants according to your body size or the implants will look abnormal and anybody could make out that you have got the job done.
No surgery is complete without risks or side effects. The same goes for breast augmentation.
Complications and Risks
The complications are the only thing that you need to take care before deciding on what method to use to get fuller breasts.
- Bleeding after surgery

- Sometimes, a firm scar tissue gets formed around the implants and cause discomfort
