Breast enlargements are one of the most commonly performed operations in my practice. There are different ways of performing a breast enlargement.
- The type of prosthesis
- Incision placement
- The positioning of the prosthesis with regard to the chest muscle ( pectoralis major)
I choose to do the following technique:
Round, silicone prosthesis, with different profiles to suit my patient’s needs. ( Eurosilicone, France)
I mainly place prosthesis behind the muscle (dual plane) because of better quality soft tissue coverage, usually allowing for a more natural feel. If, patients have sufficient soft tissue, i.e. breast tissue and subcutaneous fat, I will consider to position the prosthesis in front of the muscle.
All breast enlargements are done under general anesthetic, in a dedicated, fully licensed, cosmetic surgery hospital.
Patients are normally discharged on the same day.
Duration of Procedure approximately 1.5 hours
