What Is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is an enlargement procedure that can balance your breast size and compensate for uneven breasts. If you’ve experienced a decrease in breast tissue due to weight loss, aging or childbirth, this procedure may be right for you. Most importantly, this procedure can help improve your confidence and regain control of your body.
How Is Breast Augmentation Performed?
Breast augmentation is performed under general anesthesia. As for the process itself, there are several implant types and ways to perform the surgery. The procedure will begin with an incision, the type of incision made will depend on your specific needs.
An incision can be made:
- Along the areolar edge (periareolar incision).
- In the fold under the breast (inframammary fold).
After the incision, the implant will be placed either under the pectoral muscle or over the pectoral muscle. Placement will depend on the type of implant chosen as well as the desired breast shape/size. Dr. Polynice can discuss the procedure in greater depth and help you explore your options during your initial consultation.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation
This is a great option if you have lost breast size or if you have small breasts naturally. The most obvious benefit of this procedure is that it can improve your confidence. The procedure itself allows for a lot of flexibility too. You can choose your breast size and even have your implants removed at a later date if you change your mind.
