Breast augmentation surgery procedures
Once the anesthesia is in effect, the plastic surgeon creates an incision behind each breast to form a pocket between the inner breast tissue to place the implant. The implants are then placed in the pockets with a specific location for optimal and consistent appearance.
After comparing both breasts to ensure proper placement of the implants, the plastic surgeon closes the two incisions by sewing them, and sometimes adhesive or medical glue can be used.
