What Is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a surgery that uses breast implants to increase the size or restore the volume of your breasts. This cosmetic procedure improves the balance of your figure, enhances self-confidence, and increases the fullness and projection of your breasts. Breast augmentation is also used for those who have undergone a mastectomy.
How Is Breast Augmentation Performed?
There are several options for breast augmentation procedures. Options include the size and the shape of the implant, as well as the material inside the implants. Two of the most common materials are saline and silicone. Other options include the size and location of the incision and the placement of the implants.
Under general anesthesia, Dr. Glat makes an incision either in the navel, around the areola, in the armpit or under the fold of the breast. Once the incisions are made, silicone or saline implants are placed directly behind the breast tissue or under the pectoral muscles. Once the implants are placed in the breasts, the incisions are closed.
