Breast Augmentation / Enlargement / Mammoplasty / Silicone Implants

Breast enlargement, also called “Enlargement Mammoplasty”, involves surgical placement of an implant behind each breast to increase its volume and enhance its shape. Since implants are placed behind the breasts there is no interference with baby feeding. Many women choose to have their breasts enlarged in order to satisfy their own desire for a fuller bustline. Breast enlargement can enhance your breast size and shape and can give you the more proportional figure that you always wanted. Many women gain a great deal of self-confidence and satisfaction from breast augmentation.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR CONSULTATION
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 their aim to make you feel as relaxed, comfortable and fully informed about the procedure as possible. Our staff will be happy to help you make an appointment with Dr. Viral Desai.

During the consultation, Dr. Viral Desai will discuss with you your needs and expectations, to gain a good understanding of the results you are hoping to see after your breast surgery. 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.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON THE DAY OF SURGERY
There are two types of breast implants: saline implants and silicone implants. These are placed by means of incisions. The incisions are taken in a manner so as to leave minimal scarring and are hidden in natural body creases. Incisions are made either within the armpit, underneath the breast in the crease or around the areola. After the incision is taken, a pocket is created either in front of or behind the muscle. The implant is then placed into the pocket. Dr. Viral Desai will suggest the best position to place your implant, as this depends on the individual body shape and quantity of the existing breast.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY SURGERY
Breast augmentation is a day care procedure and generally hospitalization is not required. Most likely, you could go home the same day.Special suturing techniques are used, which ensure that no removal of sutures is necessary. You can take bath after the first dressing is done

You may experience some pain & discomfort for 2-3 days. You will need to allow yourself 2-4 days off work, depending on the degree of physical activity in your job. If you have small children, it is important that you do not lift or carry them to avoid any implant movement in the first few weeks post-operatively. You should abstain from sexual activity for at least one week and from physical exercises for three weeks.

YOUR NEW LOOK
Due to the new shapes of implants, the breasts look absolutely natural.Silicone implants make the breast feel absolutely natural.Following breast enlargement it may be easier to find clothing that fits you well and you feel more confident about your appearance.

ANATOMICALLY SHAPED COHESIVE SILICONE GEL
This unique shape-retaining cohesive silicone gel implant maintains its original shape. The disadvantages of the anatomical or tear-drop shape is that it keeps the same shape in the standing and the lying position whereas a normal breast is round in the lying position and tear-drop shaped in the standing position. Studies have shown that the round implant is teardrop shaped in the standing position. Anatomical implants generally have a greater forward projection than the same volume round implant.

SILICONE GEL IMPLANTS
Silicone implants have been successfully used since 1962. Silicone gel has an excellent texture as a filling material because it is soft and pliable and allows for natural movement. Silicone gel feels like natural breast tissue. There has been no evidence that silicone gel is related to connective tissue disease or breast cancer. It is conclusively proved that Silicone does not cause breast cancer. In fact, silicone appears to be one of the most inert materials known.

SAFETY
Breast enlargement is a relatively safe procedure. However, as with any other surgical procedure, there are certain risks and specific complications that you should discuss with Dr. Desai.
