Benefits of Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast augmentation surgery can provide a range of benefits, both aesthetic and emotional. You can find some of the major benefits of breast augmentation:

  • Improved Self-Confidence: Breast augmentation can help boost self-confidence and self-esteem, as it can provide a more proportionate and symmetrical breast size and shape.
  • Restoring Breast Size After Pregnancy or Weight Loss: Breast size can change due to factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight loss. Breast augmentation can help restore breast volume and shape, enhancing the overall appearance of the breasts.
  • Correcting Asymmetry: Breast asymmetry is a common issue among women. Breast augmentation can correct this by balancing the size and shape of the breasts, creating a more symmetrical appearance.
  • Enhanced Physical Appearance: Breast augmentation can enhance the overall physical appearance of a person, creating a more proportionate and balanced body shape.

Breast Augmentation Surgery Procedure

Breast augmentation is typically performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. The procedure usually takes around one to two hours to complete.

Incision Placement

The incision for breast augmentation can be made in three different locations: under the breast (inframammary), around the nipple (periareolar), or in the armpit (transaxillary). Your surgeon will help determine the best option for you based on your individual needs and preferences.

Implant Placement: Customized Approach for Optimal Results

At Aktif International, we understand that every patient is unique, and our approach to breast augmentation includes personalized implant placement techniques. During your consultation, our experienced surgeons will thoroughly discuss the options of implant placement: above or below the chest muscle.

Each option has its advantages and considerations, and our skilled surgeons will guide you through the decision-making process. Placing implants above the chest muscle (subglandular) can provide quicker recovery and less discomfort, while placement below the chest muscle (submuscular) may offer more natural-looking results and better implant coverage.

We prioritize patient satisfaction and take the time to understand your goals, body type, and lifestyle. By tailoring the implant placement technique to your specific needs, we ensure that you achieve optimal aesthetic results and the natural-looking breasts you desire. Trust Aktif International to provide a customized approach that aligns with your preferences and yields beautiful, harmonious outcomes.

Recovery and Follow-Up Care

After the procedure, it is important to follow your surgeon’s instructions for recovery and follow-up care. This may include wearing a special surgical bra, avoiding certain activities, and attending follow-up appointments.
