What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation refers to any of several procedures that can increase the size of the breasts, either by inserting implants or fat grafting. It is also used to create symmetry between the breasts, when one is larger than the other.

There are two types of implants that may be used:

  • Saline implants – Saline implants are inflatable, rolled-up, cigar-shaped shells that are inserted into the incision and filled with a sterile saline solution to create the exact breast size desired.
  • Silicone implants – Silicone implants are pre-filled with silicone gel and come in specific sizes.

Preparing for Breast Augmentation Surgery

General actions should include:

  • Arranging for someone to drive you home from the surgery and stay with you for the first 24 hours. Also arrange for childcare and/or pet care, if appropriate.
  • Ensuring you have shirts that button up the front to minimize the need for large arm movements, as well as comfortable nightclothes or lounging attire.
  • Having low-sodium food in the house to minimize fluid retention and swelling. You may want to prepare and freeze some meals ahead of time.

Certain products can interfere with clotting or healing or interact negatively with anesthesia. Starting two weeks before surgery, do not:

  • Drink alcohol.
  • Smoke.
  • Take aspirin or ibuprofen (acetaminophen—Tylenol—is acceptable).
  • Herbal supplements.

Types of Incisions

Your surgeon will determine the optimal incision for your procedure. They are:

  • Periareolar – Around the areola, where the darker skin around the nipple meets the lighter skin of the breast
  • Inframammary – Under the breast, where it connects with the chest
  • Transaxillary – Next to the armpit
  • Transumbilical (TUBA) – In the navel

Fat Grafting

This is, essentially, a liposuction procedure, in which fat is removed from one part of the body, cleansed, and injected into the breast; there is no large incision.

What Is the Recovery from Breast Augmentation Like?

You will receive detailed instructions about your activities, medications, washing and so on.

The type of incision and the implant size determine the downtime—which includes exercise. It can be in the range of two or three days to a week.

Will I have visible scars from the incisions?

There will be no visible scars from a periareolar incision.

There will be minor scarring from an inframammary incision, but because it is in the crease below the breast, it will be covered by breast tissue.

There will be some scarring with both the transaxillary and transumbilical incisions, but it is virtually invisible.
