WHAT TO EXPECT
AT YOUR CONSULTATION

You will be asked about the texture and shape you are looking for. It is important to remember that your breast size should be in proportion to your body shape. There are factors such as personal preferences which need to be considered to decide what breast size is best for you. You can expect the consultation with Dr. Viral Desai to last about 30 minutes.
We give utmost importance to patient confidentiality and take strictest care to ensure your privacy. The staff at CPLSS understands that it can be difficult for a patient to make enquiries about such a delicate matter. It is our aim to make you feel as relaxed, comfortable and fully informed about the procedure as possible.
HOW BREAST ENLARGEMENT IS PERFORMED?
After an incision is taken, a pocket is created either in front of or behind the muscle. The implant is then placed into the pocket and the result is obtained. Dr. Viral Desai will inform you of the best position to place your implant, as this depends on the individual body shape and quantity of the existing breast.
TYPES OF IMPLANTS: NATURAL LOOK & FEEL
Choosing the right implant, the right shape and size is very crucial. During the consultation Dr Viral will take proper measurements, understand your requirements and needs and select the correct implant for you. The implants used are micro textured having natural look, touch and feel wherein after implantation no one will realize any procedure has been done as they look like normal breasts.
The new generation implants are made of highly cohesive and soft gel as a result they do not leak compared to the older implants and have the natural look and feel. The implants used are Europe CE and US FDA approved.
Breast Augmentation can also be performed with autologous fat transfer wherein is fat taken from one’s own body, specially treated and injected into the breast to increase the size and enhance the shape. This is ideal for anyone who is concerned about allowing a foreign body being implanted and prefers their own body tissue; then fat from other areas of the body like stomach, thighs and hips can be taken.
The advantages of fat grafting to the breast are its natural, your own body fat so no chances of any allergies or infections. The disadvantages are that fat can get reabsorbed over a period of time and may require a repeat procedure later on.
WHERE ARE INCISIONS PLACED?
The incisions are hidden in natural body creases and are placed in a manner which leaves minimal scarring. Incisions are made either within the armpit, underneath the breast in the crease or around the areola.

Due to the new shapes of implants, the breasts look absolutely natural.
There seems to be varying opinions on this. Some say no, because there is equal amounts of force being exerted on the implant. However, according to Dr. Viral Desai, it is possible for very severe cases of capsule contracture to rupture the implant. Thankfully, this does not seem to be a common problem. Out of the women patients treated by Dr. Viral, not one of them has had their implants rupture due to capsular contracture.
No, implants themselves do not get hard. However, in the event that capsular contracture occurs, your breasts will feel firm. This is due to the scar capsule shrinking, and squeezing the implant, thus making it feel firm. In actuality, when the implant is removed, it feels just as it did when it was placed during the initial surgery.
