Breast enhancement, is the technical term used to indicate the surgery to increase the volume and improve the shape of the breast. The procedure, in the hands of experienced plastic surgeons, is relatively eazy on the patient, fairly quick, has a very high rate of patient satisfaction, and cosmetic results that are visible immediately.
Harmony and Beauty are the keywords that describe the goal behind any such procedure. The trend is to respect the original anatomic features and to provide volume and shape to the tissues that have shrank after pregnancy or weight loss. Asian and European women chose on average a size 285 ml while Americans chose on average a size of 325 ml.
The operation consists of placing of a textured breast implant trough a small incision (usually around the areola or in the mammary crease or in the armpit) underneath the breast tissue (submammary) or the pectoral muscle (submuscular, dual-plane technique), particularly enhancing nipple projection and volume and providing a very natural and elegant look.
There are several types of breast implants (round and anatomic implants) with a content of cohesive silicone gel, hydrogel, or saline (salted water), while the external lining is always silicone. Silicone has been proven by countless scientific studies to be completely safe. The choice of the implant depends on patient’ wishes, anatomical features, and surgical indications. Slightly more natural results are achieved with the anatomic implants but the majority of surgeons report higher complications rates 1-2 years down the road (rotation of the anatomical implants).
The goal is to provide volume, nice projection and shape as well as achieving a non-operated look.
The current fifth generation implants (cohesive gel) come with a lifetime manufacturer warranty. In rare cases of spontaneous failure, the implant is replaced at no additional material cost except for the operating room and surgeon fees.

Normal social life is usually regained in one week but vigourous physical activity is only allowed after 4-6 weeks.
