• The procedure is used cosmetically to

    • Enlarge a naturally small breast, most commonly the result of heredity
    • Restore breast volume lost following pregnancy, as a result of breast-feeding or due to weight loss
    • Achieve better symmetry when breasts are moderately disproportionate in size and shape
  • The Procedure

    • Step 1 - Anesthesia : Medications are administered for your comfort during breast augmentation surgery. The choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.
    • Step 2 - The incision : Incisions are made in inconspicuous areas to minimize visible scarring. You and your cosmetic surgeon will discuss which incision options are appropriate for your desired outcome.
    • Step 3 - Implant choice: Silicone breast implants or saline breast implants?
      Breast size and shape are important, so be honest and open about your expectations when talking with your surgeon. Implant type and size will be determined not just on your desired increase in size but more importantly on your breast anatomy, skin elasticity and body type.
    • Step 4 - Inserting and placing the breast implant : After the incision is made, a breast implant is inserted into a pocket either: Under the pectoral muscle (a submuscular placement), or directly behind the breast tissue, over the pectoral muscle (a submammary/ subglandular placement). The method for inserting and positioning implants depends on the type of implant, degree of enlargement desired, your body type, and your surgeon’s recommendations.
    • Step 5 - Closing the incisions : Incisions are closed with layered sutures in the breast tissue and with sutures, skin adhesive or surgical tape to close the skin. Over time the incision lines will fade. The navel incision of the TUBA method is the one which requires only the simplest and most un-complicated closure method.
    • Step 6 - See the results : The results of breast augmentation surgery are immediately visible. Over time, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover and realize the fulfillment of your goal for fuller breasts.
  • The Recovery

    Although many factors are involved with determining your actual recovery time for breast augmentation, you will likely experience a post-surgical recovery period of 24 to 48 hours and an additional reduced-activity period of a few days, you will likely experience soreness and swelling for a few weeks.

    Exercise and normal activity can resume at the direction of your cosmetic surgeon. Over time, post-surgical swelling will decrease and incision lines will fade.

    You will be given specific instructions that may include: How to care for your breasts following breast augmentation surgery, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection, and when to follow-up with your doctor.
