Breast Augmentation

01

What is Breast Augmentation?

There are currently two ways to increase the size of breasts: using implants, typically made of silicone, or using your own fat.

Implants are the first choice due to their availability, easiness, promptness, and safety. Fat generally requires two or more surgical interventions and has less predictable results. Medical implants are placed to augment breasts, which include a lifetime implant rupture warranty and 10-year warranty in case of capsular contractures.  It is recommended to replace implants every 10 years. Although using them longer, provided they do not present any problems, does not represent a hazard to your health.

Remarks: To perform this surgery it is imperative not to have had previous breast surgeries and not to experience breast sagging.

What to Expect

The exceptional results attained with this procedure can be observed immediately after surgery, and a definitive outcome can be seen 8 weeks after, since during this period the areas involved could experience swelling; which is expected to occur and completely normal.

The results consist of well-rounded and lifted breasts. Breast augmentation does not correct the location of nipples. If nipples are separated before surgery, they will remain so afterwards.
