Breast augmentation is as common in Singapore as it is in other parts of the world. Breast augmentation is a procedure done to enhance the breasts,by making them bigger and fuller. Women considering breast augmentation should take time to consider the type of implants, as well as the placement of implants before undergoing surgery.
Types of breast implants
When it comes to choosing breast implants women have options. Breast augmentation can be done with the use of silicone-filled or saline-filled implants. Some women prefer silicone implants, because they feelnatural, andcloselyresemble the natural breasts. In addition, silicone implants are lighter, and last longer. However, silicone implants pose a greater risk if they rupture.
Breast implant procedure
Breast augmentation is usually performed under general anesthesia. The incisions can be made under the armpit, around the areola, or under the breasts. The placement of the incisions will depend on several factors including the type of the implants being used, as well as the extent of the enlargement being done.
Placement of Implants
The implants will be placed either above or below the chest muscles, and are fitted inside a specially designed pocket. After the implants have been positioned, the surgeon will suture the incisions with surgical tape.
The breasts will be understandably tender after surgery, and will be covered with gauze. Patients will be fitted with a surgical bra, to enhance comfort during the healing process, and also to reduce swelling. Patients can usually resume light activities after a few days, and many return to work within a week. However, this time will vary depending on the size of the implants chosen.
