Breast augmentation with breast implants– The procedure may begin with an initial consultation with the surgeon and then medications for anesthesia are administered either through intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. In this case, the surgeon will give the best recommendation which would be safe and comfortable for the candidate. The incisions are made in such inconspicuous areas that they are hard to spot. The plastic surgeon will make incisions according to the discussions made in the previous consultations to achieve the desired outcome.
The incision options include making incisions along the areolar edge, in the breast fold, and also the armpit. A belly button approach is associated with a higher complication rate. Ultimately, the incisions are made based on the type of breast implants, the degree of enlargement and the anatomy of the patient. After making the incision in the desired locations, the silicone implants are placed under the pectoral muscle or directly behind the breast tissue that is over the pectoral muscle. This method for inserting and positioning the breast implants depends on the type of implants used, the desired degree of enlargement and the physique of the patient. Finally, at the end of the procedure, the incisions are closed with layered sutures in the breast tissue, skin adhesives or surgical tape. The incision scars may be visible but over time the lines will fade. The results will be visible immediately after the procedure.
Fat transfer– Autologous fat transfer procedure involves removing the fat through liposuction from the areas of the body which have abundant fat cells such thighs, abdomen, hip, etc. After processing and refining, these fat cells are injected into the breasts. The surgeons may combine both the procedures to achieve a fuller breast. The fat transfer process is a least invasive procedure but significant amount of enlargement will not be achievable with this process.
Preparation before, during and after the procedure
- After the patient has selected out a surgeon and the exact procedure to undergo, the candidate can go for a consultation with the surgeon.
- The surgeon, after explaining every detail about the procedure, analyses the health condition of the patients and asks the patient to maintain a healthy diet that can speed up the recovery.
- Patients who smoke are instructed to quit smoking for a minimum of two weeks before and after the surgery. This is because nicotine tends to increase the complication rate entirely, before undergoing the surgery.
- Some medications are restricted before the surgery as they may increase the bleeding.

Q How much pain is associated with Abdominoplasty?
A The amount of pain varies from person to person. There will obviously be some pain but the surgeon can prescribe medications for relief.
QIs scaring related to the procedure?
A Yes, scarring will be present but the severity of the scar mostly depends on the amount of skin that is removed. Though, surgeons now place the scars in such areas that they are left hidden under the bikini line.
QWhen will the results be visible?
A The results are permanent. Though, abrupt weight loss or gain may affect the results. The results will be visible as soon as the swelling will subside.
