									Breast Augmentation (Breast Implants)

Women who choose to have breast implants for breast enlargement surgery do so for a number of reasons.
They may be unhappy with the size of their breasts and with having a 'flat' chest. Or they are women who
have had a baby and breastfed, and have found their breasts have lost shape and volume. The majority of
women are either seeking to enhance or restore their breast volume and shape.

Breast augmentation surgery should be performed by a certified Cosmetic Surgeon. Initial consultations are
critical for discussion with your Cosmetic Surgeon as to your expectations and what surgery can achieve.
Consultations should include discussion of your medical history, what you are seeking to achieve, and the
Cosmetic Surgeon's recommendations for your options.

Usually you are able to 'try' some breast implants to get an idea of the size and shape achievable if you
decide to proceed with a Breast Augmentation. To help this process it is helpful to wear a well fitting bra
(the breast implants are placed inside your bra) and a fitted t-shirt.

The Cosmetic Surgeon will discuss your options with regard to the breast implant size and shape. This can
depend on your chest size and shape, the characteristics of your skin and the naturalness of the result you are
seeking. Many women seek a breast implant size that produces a natural looking result - they don't want to
advertise that they have had breast implants.

 Breast augmentation should attempt to produce an aesthetic and natural result. Unfortunately some
Cosmetic Surgeons will recommend a very large breast implant that may result in an 'implanted unnatural

Usually breast augmentation surgery takes between 1 and 2 hours and can be done under sedation or general
anaesthetic. Most women take up to 2 weeks off work following surgery. Some women can return to work
earlier so long as they are not required to bend and lift heavy objects. Most women have usually recovered
by 6 weeks. The experience of pain depends on the individual, but most women do not find pain after the
operation to be an issue and this is easily addressed by mild pain relief such as paracetamol.

Typically following breast augmentation women describe feeling more confident about their feminine figure
and shape. Often they can wear clothes and styles that they previously wouldn't have considered.
