  • Types of breast implants

    Saline breast implants

    Saline breast implants are filled with sterile salt water. At the time of surgery, they are filled to make minor modifications in implant size or prefilled at a predetermined size.

    Silicone breast implants

    Silicone breast implants are filled with soft elastic silicone gel and are available in variety of shapes. They are prefilled at a predetermined size and the gel feels a bit more like natural breast tissue. If you decide to have silicone implants, to make sure the implants are functioning properly you may need to visit your plastic surgeon regularly.

    Gummy bear breast implants

    Form-stable implants are sometimes referred to as gummy bear breast implants / cohesive gel silicone implants because they maintain their shape even when the implant shell is broken. These implants are thicker and firmer in consistency than the silicone implants and are made up of cross linked molecules of silicone. These implants are also firmer than traditional implants, but are thought to be less likely to break.

    Fat transfer breast augmentation

    This is an option for women who would prefer natural results and are looking for a relatively small increase in breast size. Fat transfer breast augmentation essentially uses liposuction to take fat from other parts of your body and inject it into your breasts.

  • Breast augmentation recovery and follow up

    During your breast augmentation recovery, your breasts will be wrapped in surgical dressings and a support bra/garment or elastic bandage have to be worn around the clock for the first couple of weeks. This will minimize swelling and support the breasts as they heal. It's important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, swelling, abrasion, or motion during the time of healing.

    Following your surgery, you may experience stiff chest, soreness and swelling for a few days to weeks. You should avoid pulling, pushing, lifting or physical activities that may cause pain, discomfort, or strain your upper part of the body. You may resume exercise and normal activity as directed by your plastic surgeon. You may return to work within few days to weeks depending on the nature of your job. Be extremely gentle with your breasts for a month at least.

    At the time of discharge you will be given specific instructions. Following your surgeon's instructions is key to the success of your surgery. Be sure to follow all of them carefully. The instructions include:

    • How to care for the surgical/treated areas and small temporary drains.
    • To aid healing and reduce the potential for infection you will be given medications to apply or take orally.
    • Specific instructions to look for at the surgical site or in your general health
    • Your surgeon will brief you about the normal symptoms you will experience any signs of complications.
    • Your next follow up date with your Plastic surgeon for suture removal or dressing.
