What is breast augmentation?

BreastsWhat is a
breast augmentation
? It is first and foremost a surgical procedure. It involves modulating the shape and size of the patient’s breasts. As its name implies, breast augmentation results in an increase in breast size. larger breasts.

The procedure itself involves placing a breast prosthesis, also known as a breast implant, at the level of the pectoral muscle in the chest. The surgeon then makes an incision to place the pre-selected implants that will reshape your breasts.

What are the reasons for breast augmentation?

Although intended for aesthetic purposes, breast augmentation is also a solution considered for the mental well-being. Most patients who come to the
Claris Clinic
are looking to feel better about their bodies with breasts that are more symmetrical, fuller or rounder.

L’breast augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures, according to ASPS, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. There are many reasons why women opt for this procedure.

Some patients have a complex about
the size of their breasts
and want to gain one or more cup sizes. Others want to change the shape of their breasts. Still others want to correct a
asymmetry, due to pregnancy, genetic factors, weight loss or other reasons…

Finally, women who have undergone a mastectomy after breast cancer are also often inclined to resort to breast augmentation.

Stages of breast augmentation surgery

The first consultation: discussion, questions, information and quotation

Before we even talk aboutsurgical interventionIt is important to take the time to discuss this with your surgeon. How does this exchange work?

First, you will explain your motivations and wishes to the surgeon. What result are you hoping for? Why do you want a breast augmentation? What implant volume would you like? By answering these types of questions, you will help the surgeon better understand your wishes.

This consultation is also the right time to discuss
your questions
your concerns about the operation and the final outcome. Which implant? What are the risks? What are the consequences for your breasts? How long does a breast prosthesis last? How much does it cost? No question should go unanswered during this appointment. It’s also a time to create a bond of trust with the surgeon who will operate on you.

At the Claris Clinic in La HulpeWe offer 45-minute consultations dedicated to this preliminary exchange. Our surgeons listen to you and try to put you at ease, so that no grey areas remain.

How does the operation work?

The procedure is always performed under general anaesthetic in our La Hulpe operating theater. It lasts around 45 minutes, during which your surgeon makes two small incisions to place the breast implants in your chest.

The incision can be made in several places:

  • Peri-areolar incision: at nipple level, this incision is rarely used, as it is rather complex.
  • Inframammary incision: under the breast, this is the most common method and the scar is barely visible after the operation.
  • Axillary incision : quite rare, this incision leaves a scar in the armpit.

After making the incision, the surgeon places the silicone prosthesisin front of or behind the pectoral muscle, depending on the individual patient.

Once the implant has been placed and the incision closed, you will rest in the recovery room before going to your room, where you will be monitored while the effects of the anesthetic wear off.

Medical follow-up and post-operative care

cosmetic surgery
The patient’s progress must be carefully monitored. You and your surgeon will therefore agree on several appointments for post-operative follow-up to check that your recovery is going well, that there are no complications in the healing process, and that you are satisfied with the result.

It’s also the right time for our specialist to recommend treatments and reflexes to speed up your recovery. He’ll share best practices with you to help you avoidpossible complications.

Recovery time generally ranges from 4 to 7 days, but follow-up is planned for the longer term. In fact, regular consultations with your plastic surgeon are highly recommended, whether just to discuss and ask any questions you may have, or to consider a longer-term plan.

Risks of breast augmentation

Breast augmentationAs with any surgical procedure, breast augmentation is not without risks. However, by choosing a renowned clinic with
renowned surgeons
such as the Claris Clinic in La Hulpe, you reduce these risks considerably.

During the pre-operative consultation, your surgeon will mention the risks of this cosmetic procedure, which are as follows:

  • Risks associated with anesthesia
  • Infection of the incision wound,

  • Abnormal wound healing
  • Implant leakage, rupture or reversal,
  • Unsatisfactory result,
  • Appearance of hematoma,
  • Allergic reaction.

These risks do exist, but are greatly reduced if you choose a trusted clinic like the Claris Clinic. What’s more, in the event of complications, our specialists will be at your disposal for optimal follow-up.

Which prostheses for breast augmentation in La Hulpe?

Implants to match your aesthetic preferences

Choose the volume of your dentures

The first thing to choose is the implant volume you want. You will discuss your wishes and desired result with your plastic surgeon, who will be able to guide you.

In fact, it’s important to seek the advice of a specialist, as overly large breasts can have a negative impact on your posture and lead to complications. You’ll benefit from the advice of our experts to make a choice that’s right for you.

If you want to gain one or more cup sizes, the volume of your prostheses will be different. Our team will be on hand to explain everything to you: size differences, projections, and potential complications.

Choose the shape of your breast forms

After choosing the volume, you can also decide on the shape of your implants. Here are the possibilities:

  • The anatomical, teardrop-shaped implant: This anatomical implant is chosen by patients seeking a natural look.
  • The round implant: This prosthesis generally offers a very round, smooth appearance and is also a common choice among patients.
  • The ergonomic implant: This round prosthesis offers a more natural appearance, as it is less filled than the round implant.

The shape of your breast forms therefore depends on your aesthetic preferences. Once again, your plastic surgeon will advise you on the shape best suited to your morphology and figure.

Choose your implant material

There are two commonly used implant materials. The first, and most common, is the silicone. It’s the most natural and comfortable solution for patients, both visually and to the touch. However, although rare, ruptures and leaks are less easily detected.

Some implants are filled with saline solution. This method makes it easier to modify the volume of your breasts, as the amount of solution can be easily adjusted within the prosthesis. However, this one is less comfortable and very rarely used.

Breast augmentation

Where are implants placed during breast augmentation?

As mentioned above, the breast prosthesis can be inserted via several different routes, which you can choose in consultation with your specialist.

In addition, there are three methods of placing the silicone prosthesis in your breast:

  • In front of the pectoral muscle: This is the most common and simplest technique, since the surgeon does not need to lift the pectoral muscle.
  • Behind the pectoral muscle: This method is reserved for patients with little breast tissue. More complex, it involves lifting the pectoral muscle to place the implant underneath.
  • The dual plane: this third technique involves partially placing the prosthesis under the pectoral muscle. The result is a more natural look that’s still easy to achieve.

How long does a breast implant last?

breast lipofillingSilicone implants can normally be kept at least 10 to 15 years. It is therefore a
breast operation
that doesn’t need to be repeated frequently.

However, it is advisable to consult your surgeon at the Claris Clinic in La Hulpe regularly to ensure that there are no complications such as a leakage or implant rupture.
