For many women, the size and shape of their breasts are of major importance. It can have a dramatic effect on her psychological, social, and medical well-being. Today, women who are troubled with small, underdeveloped, or asymmetric breasts can be helped with the technique known as Augmentation Mammaplasty. The ultimate goal of a breast augmentation is to create fuller breasts and improve the contour of a woman’s body by placing implants behind the breast tissue.
Prior to Surgery
A complete medical history and a careful examination with blood tests will be done in the initial preoperative visit to determine the general health of the patient. The surgeon will then evaluate the shape and structure of the patient’s breasts, and determine the extent of surgery and approach required to achieve the desired shape. Other options available will also be discussed to help achieve this desired shape, such as a breast lift at the same time as the augmentation.
