Breast Augmentation or Enlargement
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to increase the size of a woman's breasts. It is also known as augmentation mammaplasty. It is a cosmetic surgical procedure used to enlarge or symmetrically improve the appearance of your breasts. Breast augmentation can be accomplished by either transferring fat from another part of your body or, more popularly, by surgically placing breast implants. Individuals opt for breast augmentation due to various reasons including:
- Increase naturally small breasts.
- Restore the size and shape of breast post-pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss.
- Restore symmetry in case of asymmetrical breasts.
- Restore the breast/s post-surgery.
An implant is a medical device that is installed within the breast to enhance, regenerate, or establish the definite shape of the breast. Breast implants are classified into three types:
Saline implants - Sterile saline solution, similar to saltwater is used to fill these implants. The amount of solution may vary depending on the breast's firmness, feel, and shape.
Silicone gel-filled implants - This contains silicone gel, filled in a silicone outer shell. Alternate composite implants - Polypropylene string, soy oil, or another material could be used to fill these types of implants. Why choose 7DMC?

Before the procedure, our surgeon, Dr. Georgia Vadarli will assist you to determine the size of the implant that is required. The procedure will almost certainly be done under general anesthesia, so you will not experience pain. In the 24 hours leading up to your treatment, follow our surgeon's guidelines for preparation. Our surgeon will insert your breast implants through one of three incision options:
- Inframammary, done beneath your breast.
- Axillary, in the underarm.
- Periareolar, around the nipples.
Our surgeon will then separate your breast tissue from your chest muscles and tissue to create a space. In these spaces, your implants will be positioned in the center of your breasts. Once our surgeon has successfully inserted your implants, your cuts will be sewed up and secured with surgical tape and adhesive. As soon as the anesthetic wears off enough, you'll be free to go home after being watched in the recovery area.
A compression bandage or sports bra will likely be recommended by our surgeon following your breast augmentation treatment to give you the support you need during recuperation. Pain medication may also be prescribed by them. Our surgeon will also give suggestions as to when you can return to regular job and leisure activities after your recovery period. You may need a week off from work to recover. Physically demanding jobs may require extra time off from work to recuperate.
Sports and physical activity should be avoided for at least two weeks. Keep your blood pressure and pulse low during the first several days after invasive surgery. Apart from that, a lot of movement will cause your breasts to ache. To remove stitches that don't dissolve on their own or drainage tubes attached to your breasts, you'll need to make an appointment with our surgeon for a follow-up session.
In the event that you experience breast or armpit pain after healing, as well as any changes in breast size or shape, our surgeon must be consulted. Healthy living is essential after surgery. If you smoke, quit smoking as a smoker's body takes longer to heal.
