Women who have small breasts tend to be conscious about this, and such an insecurity may even affect their confidence. But fret not. It is possible to increase the size of their breasts by undergoing a cosmetic surgical procedure known as breast augmentation. This procedure involves placing an implant below the breast tissue to increase the size of the breasts.
How It Works
The surgeon would decide on the type of implant (saline/silicon) and size after a consultation with the patient, based on the patient’s requirements. The implant is inserted by carrying out a minor surgical procedure. It is usually done after administering general anesthesia. In some cases, it can be done under local anesthesia.
The surgeon would make an incision either below the breast, under the arm or around the nipple to open the skin. The surgeon would then create a pocket by moving the tissues. The implant is then placed in the pocket after ensuring it is right behind the nipple. Once the implant is inserted, the incision is closed through sutures.
The doctor would advise a compression garment to be worn. A sports bra would be recommended for use after the procedure. The patient can return to work within a couple of weeks of completion of the procedure.
A breast augmentation would lead to an increase in breast size and can thus help a woman change the way she looks and be more confident in social situations.
