 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.

FAQs

Breast reduction procedure

Breast reduction is a plastic surgery for women who suffer from large breast symptoms. This procedure is also known as a type of breast augmentation and is intended to remove adipose tissue and skin from the breasts to make them smaller, lighter and more rigid.

Breast reduction surgery can also reduce the size of the areola of the nipples (the dark area around the nipple). The main goal of breast reduction is to provide women with a smaller, lighter breast and to give them better alignment with the rest of the body.

Breast reduction surgery is ideal for women with:

  • Breast size which does not fit with their body
  • Chest pain due to breast size
  • Irritation in the skin
  • Restrictions during movement
  • Unequal breast size

Breast reduction surgery procedures

Individual factors and personal preferences determine the type of technique that will be used to reduce the size of your breasts.

The most common method of minimizing the breast involves three incisions. One is created around the areola of the nipples. The other incision is vertical from the lower edge of the areola of the nipples to the crease under the breast. The third incision follows the natural curve of the breast curl.

After the surgeon removes the tissue, fat, and excess breast skin, the nipple and areola are lifted to a higher position. The size of the areola, which is usually extended in large breasts, is also reduced. The skin that was above the nipple is placed at the bottom to reshape the breast. Liposuction can also be used in conjunction with this process.
