Breast implant surgery, also known as breast augmentation or “boob job”, is a popular plastic surgery procedure preferred by thousands of women every year in order to increase the size or change the shape of their breasts. Almost 300,000 breast augmentation surgeries have been performed in 2014 making breast augmentation the most popular plastic surgery procedure. Breast augmentation is also preferred by breast cancer patients following a mastectomy surgery – over 100,000 breast cancer patients have undergone a breast enlargement surgery in 2014.
A breast lift surgery may be performed together with the breast augmentation in order move the nipple to a higher position and to remove excess skin in the breast area.
Types of Breast Implants:
Round vs Teardrop Breast Implants
Round breast implants are widely used by many surgeons today. They look fuller and they have a softer implant shell compared to other breast implant types. If implant rotates, there is no visible change due to the round shape of the implant. Both saline and silicone options are available.
Teardrop breast implants, also called form-stable or gummy bear implants, is a relatively new breast implant type being introduced in 2012. Teardrop implants can maintain their shape and are produced in different shapes. Teardrop implants have a thicker shell which makes them more durable.
HOW IS BREAST AUGMENTATION PERFORMED ?
Breast augmentation surgery is performed under general anesthesia and it usually takes around an hour. The surgeon makes a small cut along the breast crease and places the implant through the incision. The size of the incision changes based on the shape and size of the implant. Dissolving stitches are used to close the incision, so there is no need to remove the stitches after the surgery.
Over the muscle vs under the muscle
One decision that needs to be made is where to place the implant:
Breast implant over the muscle – implant is placed between the chest muscle and breast tissue. It is a simple technique and recovery period is usually shorter compared to other techniques. Implant edges are more visible when the implant is placed over the muscle – making it hard to achieve a more natural look. Also, mammograms may become less effective up to 40%, as the implant can interfere with breast cancer screenings.
Breast implant under the muscle – is a more difficult technique where the implant is placed under the chest muscle. A more desirable and natural look can be achieved using this technique. It is suggested for women with little breast tissue.

BREAST AUGMENTATION FAQ
Breast Implants vs Fat Transfer
Fat transfer is a popular plastic surgery procedure used to restore the volume of many parts of the body, however increasing the breast size with fat transfer is a little complicated. There are some studies that show that breast implants are still the safest method for breast augmentation as the translated fat may not live or it may lead to oil cysts.
Can I breastfeed with implants?
Yes, you can. Breast augmentation surgery is compatible with breastfeeding. Chemicals inside the implants do not mix with the breast milk and it is safe for the baby.
Does breast implants cause breast cancer?
There is not any scientific evidence suggesting that breast implants cause breast cancer or having breast implants increases the chance of developing breast cancer.
