Breast Enlargement in Manchester

Breast EnlargementDuring surgery to increase the breast size, an implant is put in position beneath the breast tissue or beneath the chest muscle under the breast. The type of implant used is made of a silicone shell which is soft and is usually filled with a saline solution or a silicone gel.

To put the implant in place, it is necessary to cut an incision in the armpit, in the breast along the bottom crease or along the bottom side of the areola. This is the coloured part which surrounds the nipple area. The implant is introduced through the incision and could be placed in position either beneath the chest muscle or breast tissue. Some doctors think that placing the implant under the chest muscle decreases the risk of capsular contracture which is when there is a hardening of tissue around the implant. Once the implant has been adjusted to the right position and shape, the incision is stitched up.

Once the surgery has been completed, gauze is fixed over the incisions that have been stitched and an elastic bandage is used to encase the breasts. The stitches are usually removed within 7 to 10 days.

Normally, women will experience some bruising, swelling, and soreness in their breasts for a few days following the procedure, which can be relieved by taking suitable medicine prescribed by the surgeon.  There are usually some scars following breast enlargement surgery, but they are virtually invisible and usually fade to nothing after a few months.

The majority of women are back to normal activities in a few days, as long as it’s not too strenuous.
