In most cases, breast augmentation is performed by inserting new generation silicone implants, which come with a lifetime guarantee against ruptures and do not need to be replaced.
Round and anatomical implants (teardrop shape) are available, and which option will suit most the specific patient, depends on her body constitution.
The size and the shape of the implant are determined during the consultation, and the decision is based on the dimensions of the chest and the volume and characteristics of the patient’s breasts.
Ideal candidates for breast augmentation surgery are patients with smaller breasts who would like to enlarge them and improve their body proportions, mothers whose breasts have “deflated” after pregnancy and breastfeeding, and patients with congenital breast anomalies, such as asymmetry or an unnatural appearance.
Breast augmentation surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia. The duration of the operation is between 60 and 90 minutes.
