This is done to enlarge an underdeveloped breast or breast that become small and loose after child birth.
A silicone or saline implant is placed behind the muscle of breast tissue. Implant is placed through incision in axilla, below the breast or areola (dark skin around the nipple), usually leaving behind no evident tell-tale signs.
Breast augmentation is performed to balance a difference in breast size, improve body contour or as a post-surgery reconstructive technique. Silicone shells filled with saline solution are implanted either directly under the breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle, giving breasts a fuller and more natural contour.
The methods for inserting and positioning implants depend on the patient's anatomy and doctor recommendations. Incisions are made in as inconspicuous an area as possible - usually the armpit, around the areola (nipple area), or under the breast itself to minimize visible scarring. Working through these incisions, the doctor lifts the breast tissue and inserts the implant. It is then centered beneath the nipple, either under or above the pectoral muscle.
Breast augmentation has been available for over 40 years. With that said, the surgical techniques and breast implants themselves are continuously being refined, increasing the safety and reliability of the procedure. Breast augmentation will make your breasts fuller and enhance their shape. In addition, you will find it easier to wear certain styles of clothing and swim wear. Like many women who have had breast augmentation, you may have a boost in self-confidence.
Correction Of uneven Breasts
According to the desire of the patient and if tissues permit, either the small breast can be made larger, or the larger one can be made smaller. There are times when a combination of surgeries may have to be done, like enlargement of one side and simple lift (Mastopexy) or reduction of the other.
Women who have had their breast removed (one or both ) due to illness ( usually breast cancer ) can have their configuration reconstituted by this procedure. Tissue can be taken from the lower abdomen or back, or implants may be used to form the breast. The nipple and areola can also be reconstructed to let the women regain her natural appearance and confidence.
