The operation is usually performed when the breast reaches its mature and final size after puberty at approximately 18 y/o. There are instances however when it can be done earlier such as when one is dealing with congenital breast hypoplasia. This is done with utmost patient confidence.

A simple Breast Augmentation takes approximately an hour or two. It may take longer to complete if combined with other cosmetic plastic surgery procedures.

Local anesthesia may be infiltrated around the breasts in addition to general anesthesia.

There are several incisions, which could be utilized by your plastic surgeon in his approach for placing the breast implant. The inframammary approach makes use of an incision just below the inframammary fold wherein the lower part of the breast connects with the chest. A periareolar approach is placed around the inferior border of the areola. On the other hand, the transaxillary approach utilizes an incision in the armpit. Each technique has its own advantages and potential downside.

Generally, the plastic surgeon lifts the breast tissue up together with the muscle to create a pocket for the implant. At times, he may prefer creating a pocket without lifting the muscle. This is called the sub-glandular or sub-pectoral/sub-muscular placement of implants. There are numerous factors that come into play in deciding which technique to use. Your plastic surgeon will discuss everything with you.

Wound closures are always carefully and meticulously performed by your cosmetic plastic surgeon. Scars are natural consequences of any incision or surgery. Your cosmetic plastic surgeon will try his best to keep them well concealed and hardly noticeable as possible. Following surgery, dressings will be applied over the wounds while bandages have to be maintained over the superior pole of the breasts to hold them in place and prevent migration of the implants.
