Breast Augmentation Suitability
A common question is who breast augmentation surgery is suitable for.
It is potentially suitable for anyone who has concerns relating to the size and / or volume of their breasts or a singular breast if asymmetry is a problem.
For some, it can work to rectify breasts that remained underdeveloped because of genetics, a condition called hypomastia, while others will seek to redress changes to the breasts that occurred during pregnancy, weight loss or simply through ageing.
Others choose to have breast augmentation surgery because they don’t like the look or feel of their breasts, the enlargement the opportunity to get the figure they have always desired.
Your surgeon would discuss your hopes for the surgery at consultation and the reasons a procedure is desired – this is not to delve into the person’s life, but instead to ensure that surgery is truly in their best interests.
Ultimately, the individual reasons for seeking this procedure are less important than whether it is a suitable option and whether it can achieve the desired results.
Consultation to Discuss Breast Augmentation
Miss Breahna, in common with all leading cosmetic surgeons, places great importance on the need for thorough and detailed consultations.
These consultations are the opportunity for the prospective patient to talk and for her to listen. They are a chance for the prospective patient to say their aims for surgery and what has brought them to this stage.
For many, this is a surgery that will have psychological benefits as well as physical; breast augmentation can boost self-esteem and help restore confidence.
Miss Breahna can then recommend the best plan of action, this taking into account all that has been discussed.
Options for Breast Enlargement
There are numerous options for the type of implant and how and where they are inserted. In truth, the patient does not need to have a preconception of which is the best option as this would be discussed at consultation.
The place of incision and placement of implants will also vary on a patient-by-patient basis. The best option for you as an individual would be discussed.
Breast Augmentation Procedure
Carried out at the wonderful Grosvenor Hospital, a facility with modern operating theatres and luxurious suites in which to relax and recovery post-surgery, the procedure would start with Miss Breahna taking photographs of the breasts.
The points of incision would be marked – there are typically two options – under the breast and around the areola. The skilled surgeon will choose the option that leads to the best results while also minimising visible scarring.
The implants can be inserted in one of two places – between the breast tissue and chest muscle or under the chest muscle. If the breast augmentation was also utilising fat transfer via liposuction, for instance as part of a Mummy Makeover, this will help to further shape and refine the appearance of the breasts.
Once the implants are inserted and positioned, the incisions are closed up and a dressing applied.
The nature of expected recovery times would be fully discussed prior to surgery.
Typically, an overnight stay in hospital is required, while there is then a period of up to two weeks off work and around 12 weeks until full exercise can be resumed.
There can be minor short term side effects such as swelling, bruising and numbness – these are managed through prescribed painkillers.
Miss Breahna would hold regular follow-up appointments, the first of which would come after a week and would check the healing and dressings. Further appointments typically follow at three weeks, six weeks, three months and six months.
Patients can, of course, ask questions at any point in between these scheduled appointments.
