Breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty is currently a highly sought-after surgical technique. It is recommended to anyone who suffers from breast hypotrophy (insufficient development of the mammary gland) or in cases where the volume of the breasts has fallen substantially, following weight loss or breastfeeding.

The surgeon and the patient together will determine the shape, volume and size of the implants. Your surgeon will also make a clear and precise choice of the type of implants to use.
The patient will notice a difference immediately after the surgery. After six weeks, the skin will begin to soften and the implants become a natural part of the body. Scarring will almost disappear over a period of 10 to 12 months.

This cosmetic surgery is performed under a general anaesthetic, avoiding any risk of negligence. The patient is always monitored with a view to excluding any abnormality or complication, such as infection or a capsular contracture. The implants are placed behind the pectoral muscle with a view to increasing breast volume, thereby enabling all women who have not yet had children, or plan to have them, to breastfeed normally. Mammograms can continue to be done; in this case, you will need to inform the radiologist that you have had a breast implant, so that your breast image is not misinterpreted.

The images show a real case of a breast increase, before and following introduction of the implant.
