Breast Augmentation

Seeking a better figure

If you often wish that your breasts were larger, symmetrical and proportionate to the rest of your body, a breast augmentation surgery with implants will be the best option for you.

After giving birth or loosing weight, breasts tend to loose volume and firmness, which changes the way they look. In some cases, one of the breasts may be much larger than the other one.

 

First step: The medical consultation

During the first consult, the plastic surgeon and you will define whether or not the breast augmentation surgery is the most convenient option. If it is, he will decide the best way to insert the silicone implants, as well as their shape and size. The best option is through the base of the breast. A small incision is made, and the implant is placed behind the chestwall muscles, or behind the mammary gland, so as to avoid harming it for future pregnancies. There are other options to place the silicone implants, such as doing it through a small incision around the areola or through the axilla.

About the breast augmentation surgery

The breast augmentation surgery is performed in one of the operating rooms at Clínica Robles.

The silicone implants are placed through a 1,5 inch inframammary or periareolar incision so as to avoid injuring the mammary gland. The breast prosthetics are made up of a bag-like sealed membrane, which comes in several shapes and sizes, filled with a silicone gel. The procedure lasts for about an hour, and one day clinic admittance is expected.

How is the post-operatory?

The patient leaves Clínica Robles wearing a compressing bra or corset which keeps the prosthetics in the correct area. The patient must rest for 2 or 3 days. By the fourth day, the patient may use gym tops and between 7 to 10 days, the patient may return to its regular activities. 12 days after the surgery, the stitches will be removed; one month after the procedure, the patient will be able to workout again as well as sunbathe, covering the incision.

How are the results?

You will be thrilled with the results. Your new and natural curves will allow you to wear much more varied outfits and you will love your body for years.

20 days after the breast augmentation surgery, the patient will have to massage its breasts as indicated by the surgeon to avoid implant encapsulation, which is something that happens with any foreign object inside your body.

As for the incisions, these will be hidden as much as possible, both below the breast, just over the areola, or in the axilla.

After the breast augmentation surgery, the scars will fade, every patient will have a different healing speed.

Regarding the silicone implant, it will be placed behind the chest muscle and/or behind the mammary gland, depending on each case.
