Your surgeon will guide you in choosing the best implant and procedure for you. You will need to discuss these options with your surgeon to get the best possible results.
There are many aspects to consider when planning for Breast Augmentation Surgery, including:
- Not all implant brands are equal in reputation and longevity.
- What material are they made of?
- Round or anatomical (teardrop)?
- What will work best for you and your body in the long term?
- In front of the muscle
- Behind the muscle
- Or dual-plane?
- Incision Location
The procedure itself generally lasts for 2-4 hours. But, this will vary from patient to patient. Furthermore, patients will be under general anaesthesia during the procedure.
Your surgeon will administer Medications and General Anaesthesia for your comfort during your surgical procedure.
There are a number of surgery options and incision approaches to Breast Implant Surgery, including; Inframammary, periareolar or transaxillary incisions.
Closing the Incisions
At the end of the operation, your surgeon will close the incisions with dissolving stitches. This often means that you will not need to have the stitches taken out following surgery.
Your surgeon will also cover the suture (incision) line with a waterproof dressing.
