The breast augmentation surgeons know that for many women, self-esteem is closely tied to their feelings about the size and shape of their breasts.
If a woman feels her breasts are too small or unshapely, this can have a strong, negative impact on how she feels about herself overall and a breast augmentation may be the best solution. Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance the shape and size of the bust by means of an implant, gently inserted within the breast. Breast augmentation results in a full, naturally rounded looking breast shape.
Types of Incisions
Inserting and Placing the Implant
The surgeon continues the breast augmentation procedure by placing the implant either beneath the breast gland or, more commonly, under the pectoralis muscle, and then closes the incision.
Closing the Incisions
Incisions are closed with layered sutures in the breast tissue and with sutures, skin adhesive or surgical tape to close the skin. Over time the incision lines will fade.
