Breasts are a defining feature of any woman’s body. They signify femininity, sexuality, and beauty; when they don't match the rest of you or your breasts aren’t big enough for some reason it can have profound effects on your self-confidence levels! That's why cosmetic surgery like breast augmentation has become so popular recently among many different kinds of people who want to feel confident about themselves again - no matter what their age may be.
Breast augmentation surgery, also known as “boob job” or “augmentation mammoplasty,” is a surgical procedure to enhance breast size and shape. It is a process that helps women achieve the body they want. Whether it’s through fat grafting or breast implants, this procedure can give women larger breasts to make their frame more proportionate.
Breast augmentation can be done through two different methods, depending on the individual situation:
Breast augmentation with breast implants: In this procedure, saline implants or silicone implants are placed under the breast tissue or chest muscles.
Breast augmentation with fat grafting: In this procedure, fat is extracted from the patient’s own body through liposuction and injected into the breasts.
Here are a few of the reasons women opt for breast augmentation or breast enlargement surgery:
To improve self-confidence
To get a better, well-proportioned figure
To correct uneven breasts
To adjust breast size after pregnancy
To correct a congenital breast defect such as tubular breasts
To increase the projection of breasts
To improve breast balance
Dr. Vasant Gholave, Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon and the founder of Arra Aesthetics, Pune, has made a list of factors that are needed for a patient to be considered a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery:
Good physical health
A non-smoker (or willing to quit smoking for the duration prescribed by the surgeon)
Healthy reasons for wanting to undergo breast augmentation
Willing to take time off for recovery
If you match the above criteria, then you are a good candidate for breast augmentation. The decision to have breast augmentation is a very personal choice. You should consult with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon to determine if this is the right procedure for you.
During the consultation for breast augmentation, Dr. Vasant Gholave, experienced cosmetic surgeon and founder of Arra Aesthetics, Pune, will examine the current condition of the patient, the patient’s breasts, and discuss their desired size and the patient’s expectations. He will take all of these into account and advise the patient as to which breast augmentation procedure is most suitable for their needs.
After the type of procedure has been determined by the patient and the surgeon, Dr. Gholave will describe the procedure to the patient in detail, including the type and size of breast implants or from which body part the fat should be extracted.
At Arra Aesthetics, Pune, our priority is the patient’s safety and satisfaction, so Dr. Vasant Gholave will analyze every aspect of the procedure and give the best possible results.
Breast augmentation surgery is not covered by insurance since it is a cosmetic procedure. When it comes to the overall breast augmentation surgery cost, be it breast implant surgery or fat grafting/fat transfer breast augmentation, the following factors are included:
Breast implants costs (in case of breast implant surgery)
The cost of breast augmentation surgery will differ based on several factors, such as the condition of the breasts, the type and quality of breast implants, the kind of operation (first-time or revision surgery), and the type of procedure.
The average cost of breast augmentation ranges from Rs. 1,00,000/- to Rs. 1,50,000/- + 18% GST at Arra Aesthetics, Pune. Dr. Vasant Gholave will discuss every aspect of the cost of breast augmentation surgery with you during consultation.
Dr. Vasant Gholave, founder of Arra Aesthetics, Pune, might give you certain instructions that need to be followed before the breast augmentation procedure takes place, like:
If you are a smoker, you may be asked to stop smoking about 6 weeks before the surgery.
You may be asked to stop taking medications or supplements such as blood thinners, aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications, vitamin E, and fish oil.
You may be asked to make sure that a trustworthy adult will be there to take you home from the procedure and stay with you for at least the first 24 to 48 hours.
Breast augmentation with breast implants is done in the following steps:
Before the surgery, the surgeon will discuss with the patient where the implants need to be placed.
During the surgery, first general anesthesia will be administered.
Then, the surgeon will make an incision where the implant has to be placed. There are generally three places where the incision may be made:
The crease of the breast
Under the arm
Around the nipple
The surgeon will then separate the breast tissue from the muscles and the connective tissue in the chest.
This creates a pocket either in front of the outermost muscle or behind it. The implant will be placed within this breast pocket and centered behind the nipple. The type of breast implant will be determined at the time of consultation.
After the placement, the surgeon will close the incision with stitches.
Breast augmentation surgery with breast implants tends to take around an hour to be fully completed.
The procedure for breast augmentation with fat grafting is as follows:
First, local anesthesia or general anesthesia will be administered.
Then the surgeon will use liposuction to extract fat from areas with excess fat like the stomach, hips, and thighs.
The collected fat will be processed and unwanted components like oil, water, and blood will be separated.
The processed fat will then be injected into the breasts with the help of fine cannulas.
Multiple injections will be required to produce symmetrical and natural-looking results.
Yes, breast augmentation can be combined with other cosmetic procedures. The most common procedures that are combined with breast augmentation are breast lift, asymmetry correction, liposuction, and tummy tuck. Breast augmentation can also be performed along with other procedures as part of a mommy makeover package.
Breast augmentation surgery is generally an outpatient procedure and the patient will be able to return home the same day as the procedure.
The patient may have some swelling and soreness after the surgery, but both should disappear after a few days. The surgeon may prescribe painkillers for the patient’s comfort and antibiotics to prevent infection. The patient will also be asked to wear a sports bra for 4 to 6 weeks after the surgery. In the case of fat grafting, the patient will also have to wear compression garments in the areas where liposuction was done.
In most cases, the patient will be able to return to work and daily activities within a week without any strenuous discomfort. Rigorous exercise will be prohibited for at least 2 to 3 weeks to give the breasts time to heal fully. The patient will be asked to walk at least 3 times daily to improve circulation and prevent blood clots.
The patient will be advised to diligently attend the follow-up appointments with the surgeon to carefully analyze the results and the recovery.
Like all surgeries, there are a few risks associated with breast augmentation surgery. They are:
Chances of infection
Persistent swelling and pain
Temporary numbness around the areola
Leakage or rupturing of implants
These risks can be avoided if utmost care is taken during the procedure and recovery process.
How long do breast implants last?
Breast implants are not designed to be a lifetime device, and most women will eventually need to have them replaced. The average lifespan of silicone or saline breast implants is 10-12 years.
Is it safe to get breast implants?
The safety of silicone and saline breast implants has been well-established over the past several decades. Breast implants are made of safe, biocompatible materials that are well tolerated by the body.
Does breast implant surgery have any side effects?
The most common side effects of breast implant surgery are pain, swelling, and bruising. These side effects are typically temporary and will go away on their own within a couple of weeks.
Should I have breast augmentation surgery after giving birth?
It is generally recommended that women wait to have a breast augmentation until after they have finished having children. This is because pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause changes in the breasts that may impact the results of the surgery.
Will I have visible scars after breast augmentation?
If performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, the incisions for breast augmentation are usually very small and well-hidden. The scars will continue to fade over time and will eventually be nearly invisible.
