Breast augmentation technique: What is it?
Breast augmentation can be done in two distinct ways:
- The installation of breast prosthesis which consists of placing breast implants at the level of the breasts to restore volume and redesign them.
- Breast lipofilling, which removes fat from your body and injects it back into your breast. This technique can then be performed at the same time as a liposuction and allows you to have a natural breast and in harmony with your figure.
The surgeon sometimes combines these two techniques. He thus places a smaller prosthesis around which he injects a layer of fatty tissue. This allows for a more natural result, both in terms of appearance and touch.
Breast augmentation: anesthesia, hospitalization, duration
Breast augmentation before / after: the results
Breast surgery includes all surgical interventions that aim to change the shape, size or support of the breast.

Breast augmentation: course of the operation
- He first makes a 4 to 5 mm incision which will allow him to insert the prostheses. These incisions are then hidden at the level of the breast crease, around the nipples or in the armpits.
- He then sets up a space to insert the breast prostheses. These will then be placed between the pectoral muscle and the mammary gland, behind the pectoral muscle or a part behind the pectoral muscle and another under the mammary gland.
- After the operation, the surgeon closes the incisions and places a modeling bandage on your scars.
On the other hand, if he decides to perform lipofilling to increase the volume of your breasts:
- It first takes a little fat from your thighs, your saddlebags or your belly.
- Depending on the surgeon, either he directly reinjects the fat removed, or he places the fat cells in a centrifuge to rid them of their impurities. In all cases, a large amount of fat cells must be retained.
- It then injects the fat cells in the form of a fat microbead. This technique allows fat to come into contact with the capillaries and gain access to the nutrients and oxygen they need to survive.
