Mr Ghosh is able to offer the whole range of procedures for breast augmentation including using the classical round shaped implants and the anatomical or tear drop shaped implants. The decision to use a particular type of implant is made following full consultation and examination.
The surgery is carried out under general anaesthetic and involves an overnight stay in hospital. This procedure can help with the following;
- To help correct a loss in breast volume after pregnancy weight loss
- To balance breast size, when there is a significant difference between the size of the breasts.
- As a reconstructive technique for various conditions.
- To replace breast implants for medical or cosmetic reasons.
The shape and size of the breasts prior to surgery will influence both the recommended treatment and the final results. If the breasts are not the same size or shape before surgery, it is unlikely that they will be completely symmetrical afterwards. All implants have a silicone coating. Some are silicone gel filled and others saline filled. Breast enlargement is accomplished by inserting a breast implant either behind the breast tissue or under the chest muscles. Incisions are made to keep scars as inconspicuous as possible, usually under the breast, around the lower part of the areola, or in the armpit. The method of inserting and positioning breast implants will depend on your preferences, your anatomy and your surgeon’s recommendation.
Patients undergoing augmentation mammoplasty surgery must consider the possibility of future re-visionary surgery.
*Results will vary from person to person and a thorough in-depth consultation will first take place.
