An aesthetic breast enhancement is one of the most common treatments that we perform. Do you have small breasts, and does this cause a low self-esteem? Then a breast augmentation might be the solution. Larger breasts will give you more confidence, making you stronger in life and your low self-esteem disappears. The risks associated with an aesthetic breast augmentation today are minimal. Breast Actives
PREPARATION FOR BREAST AUGMENTATION
Preparation for breast augmentation surgery: The plastic surgeon will first check whether you are in good health. You must be well informed and have realistic expectations about the outcome of a breast correction, the risks associated with plastic surgery and the postoperative period, before you make an appointment for the operation. It is also important that the doctor understands which size of breast implants you want. Before surgery, your breasts are measured and the plastic surgeon puts markings on your chest.
The plastic surgeon also decides where the breast implant will come. The breast implant can be placed partially or completely under the pectoralis major muscle (submuscular) or on top of the muscle and under the glands (subglandular). The doctor will determine the location in consultation with you.
That depends on your physical characteristics, such as how much breast tissue you have and whether you intend to do heavy physical work.
HOW DOES THE OPERATION WORK?
With an aesthetic breast enlargement an incision is made. This incision can take place in different places:
- Under the chest: The incision is made in the crease under the chest. That is the most common method.
- Next to the areola: The incision is made along the edge of the areola, next to the nipple.
- In the armpit: The incision is made in the armpit.
- Then an implant is placed under or above the pectoral muscle, where exactly it will be discussed with the doctor before treatment.
