Breast Augmentation (Breast Implants)

Here you can find information to help you better understand your options if you are considering breast augmentation surgery!

Below is the basic knowledge of breast augmentation, you can click on the topic to read more.

Breast Augmentation (Breast Implants)

What is breast augmentation (breast implants)?

Breast augmentation is the surgical placement of breast implants to increase fullness and projection of the breasts or to improve symmetry of the breasts. Clinically referred to as augmentation mammaplasty. If you are dissatisfied with your breast size, breast augmentation surgery is a choice to consider. (Breast implants also may be used for breast reconstruction after mastectomy or injury)


Can do breast lift with implants at the same time?

Breast lifting can often be done at the same time as your augmentation or may require a separate operation. Your plastic surgeon will assist you in making this decision.


Can mother breastfeed after having breast augmentation?

Yes, mother can do breastfeeding after having breast augmentation. Implant insertion through the fold of the breast and through the armpit is recommended in order to escape possible troubles in breastfeeding.


Can silicone gel pass into breast milk?

No, silicone gel could not pass into breast-milk because the silicone molecule is too small to get into the milk ducts.


How do I choose the right doctor for me?

It is very important that you select a physician with exceptional credentials, training and experience. Whether you choose our plastic surgeon or not, we strongly recommend that you consider a surgeon who is board certified for plastic surgery but be aware that just because a doctor is “board-certified” doesn’t mean he or she has had training or experience in cosmetic plastic surgery. Make sure your surgeon is experienced in the procedure you are considering.


What is the risk / complication of breast augmentation?

Capsular contracture occurs if the capsules around the implants begin to tighten and thicken. This will cause the breasts to feel hard and appear unnatural. Hard breasts can be treated in several ways. Sometimes removal of the capsule is required, or perhaps the implant needs to be replaced. Bleeding is usually minimal during the operation. In an unusual case, bleeding after surgery may cause a large blood clot that needs to be removed. Infection is an uncommon risk. However, if a breast becomes infected, the implant must be removed immediately. You need to wait for several months before repeating the operation.

Our team and our plastic surgeons take every precaution possible to prevent and minimize the risks of surgery. However, much of the responsibility for risk avoidance rests with the patient as well.
