Breast implant surgery, also known as breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts. Here is an overview of breast implant surgery:

Consultation and Preoperative Assessment:

Initial Consultation: The process begins with a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. During this consultation, the surgeon discusses the patient’s goals, medical history, and expectations.

Physical Examination: The surgeon performs a physical examination to assess breast size, shape, and symmetry.

Choosing Implants:

Implant Types: Patients can choose between saline-filled or silicone gel-filled implants. The choice depends on factors such as personal preference, desired outcome, and the surgeon’s recommendations.

Size and Shape: Implants come in various sizes and shapes, allowing for customization based on the patient’s anatomy and aesthetic goals.

Surgical Procedure:

Anesthesia: Breast implant surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort during the procedure.

Incision Placement: The surgeon makes incisions in strategic locations to minimize visible scarring. Common incision sites include under the breast crease, around the areola, or in the armpit.

Implant Placement: The implants are inserted either under the chest muscle (submuscular) or directly behind the breast tissue (subglandular).

Closure: After placing the implants, the incisions are closed using sutures.


Postoperative Care: Patients are provided with postoperative care instructions, including wearing a supportive bra, managing discomfort with prescribed medications, and avoiding strenuous activities during the initial recovery period.

Follow-Up Appointments: Regular follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor healing and address any concerns.

Results and Longevity:

Immediate Results: The initial results of breast implant surgery are visible immediately, although some swelling and bruising may take time to subside.

Long-Term Satisfaction: Many patients experience long-term satisfaction with the results, but it’s important to note that breast implants are not considered lifetime devices.

Potential Complications:

Risks: While breast implant surgery is generally safe, it carries potential risks and complications, including infection, bleeding, changes in nipple or breast sensation, or implant rupture.

Regular Monitoring: Patients are advised to monitor their breasts regularly and report any unusual changes to their surgeon.

Mammograms and Breast Health:

Routine Screening: Breast implants may impact routine mammograms, and additional imaging techniques may be recommended for breast cancer screening.

Regular Check-ups: Regular breast self-exams and clinical breast exams remain important for women with breast implants.

Breast implant surgery is a highly individualized procedure, and patients should thoroughly discuss their goals, concerns, and expectations with a qualified plastic surgeon. A personalized approach ensures that the surgery aligns with the patient’s unique anatomy and desired outcome.
