Plastic surgeon will assist you to make a decision in the choice of type and size of breast implants. Most people who decide to have their breast augmented are women who would like to have the looks of their breast from the past brought back. They are also young women who have natural small breasts. In this case, the size of implants used is determined by the most natural looks.
During an operation the surgeon usually makes an incision (cut) of about 4-5cm under the breast. The implant is placed in a pouch under the mammary gland in front of pectoralis major muscle or under pectoralis major muscle. Plastic surgeon takes part in the choice of method based on patient’s expectations, to obtain the best effect in every particular case. Prostheses have different sizes and shapes. Whatever suits individually depends on the initial breast size, age and woman’s expectations.
