Beautiful breasts are a symbol of femininity. The female hormone, estrogen, is the reason for the blossoming of the female physical secondary sexual characteristics. A beautiful physique is a signal of health and fertility, thus building bonds with a potential companion!
Breasts are often a source of concern for many women, particularly when they are not of the size or shape a woman wants. Breast augmentation with implants and fat is the most popular method that enlarges and adds fullness to the breasts.
Breast augmentation is a popular surgical procedure that helps increase the shape and size of the breasts. This procedure involves the placement of an implant either behind the breast tissue or under the chest wall muscle called pectoralis major muscle. This insertion of the implant will push the breast tissue forward and make the breast look larger and fuller. Another popular technique of breast augmentation is with fat tissues. In this process, unwanted fat is taken out from one region of the body and is processed and injected into the breasts to achieve the desired size and shape. This treatment also helps one to get defined, beautiful and natural-looking breasts. This procedure requires more than one surgical sittings, though.
For a great experience and beautiful results, one must always choose a plastic surgeon who is an expert, experienced, and personally committed to tailored results. At Lasercosmesis, our philosophy has been based on the realization that true beauty and attractiveness have their foundations in good health.
Implants come in several sizes and shapes. Experts at Lasercosmesis will help you choose the most suitable implants according to your body profile. The size of the base and height of the implant is to be selected with care. If a very large implant is used, it will create a load on your shoulders, and it may tend to sag in the future. Hence a moderate-sized implant suitable according to one’s body will be recommended.
At Lasercosmesis, we will discuss the shapes and textures available and let you make an informed decision.
The implants can have texture, or they can be smooth. The smooth implants can sometimes cause capsule formation and tightness around it. The textured ones are associated with a very rare possibility of implant-associated large cell lymphoma. Both nano-textured and smooth implants are widely used in the world by plastic surgeons.
Nowadays, sophisticated software is available that use computer simulation to predict how the implants will look after inserting different types and sizes of implants!
This enables you and your surgeon to visualize how you are going to look after the operation when all post-operative swelling has settled. Then you can discuss with the surgeon and choose a suitable implant. Another useful thing is to go through some pre and post-operative photographs of patients who have undergone such procedures that help choose the best implant type. At Lasercosmesis, we offer 3-D simulation to choose the best size of implant and type of surgery. This gives you clarity of results post-operatively, although exactly the same result cannot be guaranteed.
There are three main methods utilized to augment the breasts. This involves the use of implants, breast lift, and fat injection. These treatments can also be combined judiciously to get the final result.
Breast implants method has been used for decades by many plastic surgeons. Technology has moved on to gel-filled silicone implants with surface texture from the older types of implants, further evolving to nano-textured or smooth implants. They can be inserted under the muscle which sits below the breast tissue, or above it. The surgeon determines the proper incision and implant placement according to individual body anatomy. Three different incision locations can be used to insert the implant, such as through the armpit, the areola, or the crease under the breast.
All incisions are placed to make them as invisible as possible. The latest techniques involve the strategic placement of implants in the upper pole under the muscle while the lower part is sitting upon the muscle, which gives a beautiful fullness to the upper part. This is called dual plane augmentation. Another way is to insert it under a tissue sheet that separates the breast and muscle called the subfascial approach. Once the implant has been positioned, the incisions will be closed. If the breast tissue is very thin, it is advisable to place the implant under the chest wall muscle names pectoralis major.
With time and especially after pregnancy and breastfeeding, sometimes the breasts also become heavy, and they also lose their elasticity and become sag with the effects of gravity. In such situations, breast lift and enhancement with own breast tissue or implant are done. This is called aug-pexy when the implant is used for better fullness in the upper part.
Transfer of the patient's own fat tissue from their abdominal or thigh region to the breast is also one of the newer techniques to give the desired fullness to the upper part and create a lovely cleavage line. This is called the fat transfer technique and is the best option for people who do not want to insert foreign material in their bodies. Women who are thin are not candidates as there is not enough fat to transfer. This technique is the best option for breast reconstruction if somebody has a lumpectomy or people who want to correct defects like uneven breasts. It is the best and effective correction option for misshapen or underdeveloped breasts due to genetic problems such as tuberous breast or Poland syndrome.
Implants are inserted inside millions of women worldwide without any problems later in life. There was a concern raised whether some ladies developed disorders like arthritis, years after having implants placed. Careful studies showed that there was no relationship between the procedure and the development of any disease.
A few women develop a thick capsule around the implant after a few years. Within those capsules, they sometimes can develop a tissue growth called ALCL, a type of tumor that grows locally and causes local swelling and hardness. However, this is rare and hardly ever seen in Indian women. It is not a breast tissue cancer but cancer due to irritation by the implant material limited to the capsule. It is treatable by removing the implant and the capsule. Obviously, early detection is important. Implants are safe and popular operations are regularly performed all over the world. At Lasercosmesis, we use the best quality branded and FDA approved implants.
There is some soreness and discomfort for the first one or two days, but it's manageable with medicines. Stitches are usually dissolving type, and the dressing and checkup are done by the 5th day after surgery. If non-dissolving stitches are used, they are removed after two weeks. The patient is advised not to do any strenuous exercise or stretching for 6 weeks. The patient is advised not to sleep on one side for 3 weeks, and one should avoid sleeping face down for 6 weeks.
Wearing a sports bra or customized support bra for 6 weeks is very useful since it will support and protect your figure.
Initially, the elevated shape will feel unfamiliar, and the chest may feel somewhat hard and shoulders heavy, but this will gradually settle. One can see the best results after a few weeks as the swelling subsides and the skin stretches. Scars initially feel firm and seem prominent but gradually heal and settle down nicely. They are often placed under the breasts so as to be inconspicuous.
Genetic factors, nutritional deficiencies, or other health reasons are the major factors that cause underdevelopment of breasts. For such candidates, breast augmentation surgery is an ideal option to get a defined chest profile.
Many women may consider having enlarged breasts for several reasons:
An essential test is mammography of the breast to check the presence of any disease of the breast. This is the baseline test. The report is also used as a reference in case any problem arises in the breast tissues later.
Other than that, you are evaluated for your physical fitness to undergo surgery under anesthesia. Safety is paramount at Lasercosmesis. Basic blood tests, X-rays of the chest, and ECG tests are performed to ensure one is fit to undergo the surgical procedure. The surgeon also checks for current patient medicines, medical history, and one should also stop the consumption of blood thinners before surgery. Smoking has to be stopped at least 3 weeks before any surgery.

How long do I stay in the hospital?
One day stay is enough. If everything goes well, one can go home at night, but we would prefer a stay of one night.
Are there any complications to worry about?
At Lasercosmesis, proper information is given to every patient well before any procedure. Breast augmentation is not considered a high-risk surgery when performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon. Complications such as infection, scar breakdown, skin breakdown, and extrusion of the implant in the long term, leakage, and deflation of implant, are truly uncommon nowadays because implant size is carefully chosen, quality ensures, and fitness for operation is scrupulously evaluated beforehand. Minor irregularities, asymmetries can occur. Very rarely, infection, fluid accumulation called a seroma, or blood accumulation called hematoma can develop in the first 15 -20 days. Those need appropriate treatment.
If you develop tightness or mild pain or some irregular shape, please do report to your surgeon. This condition occurs very rarely, but it may be due to the formation of a capsule around the implant. In most cases, massage helps. Sometimes the capsule may have to be cut or removed.
The nipple sensation reduces for a few days but usually recovers over a period of time.
How often the follow up is required after surgery?
Any breast surgery is a dynamic process. It is desirable to check once a year with your surgeon to confirm that things are fine. Sometimes a little change occurs due to aging weight fluctuations, hormonal factors, and gravity. This can be corrected with other procedures.
The life of an implant is about 10 years as per current information. It is a good idea to review your status periodically.
