Breast augmentation technique: What is it?

Breast augmentation is intended to increase the volume of the breasts of women with atrophy, breast asymmetry or in whom it is noted the absence of breast. This malformation of the breast can be either innate, therefore present from the development of the breast, in adolescence, or the result of a hormonal variation or a significant weight loss.

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 by placing a breast prosthesis lasts about an hour and is done under general anesthesia. The patient then spends a night in the clinic and leaves the next day.

When you do a lipofilling, the operation can last between one hour and two hours. The operation then takes place under local anesthesia and the patient can go home the same day.

Breast augmentation before / after: the results

The results of breast augmentation, whether by lipofilling or breast prosthesis, are immediately visible. However, in the case of the use of breast implants, the final results will only be visible after 2 or 3 months, the time for the edema to subside and the bruises to disappear. The more elastic your skin is, the more optimal the result will be. Finally, your breasts will experience the effects of time and attraction, like a natural breast.

For a lipofilling, you have to wait about six months to appreciate the final results of the operation.

In both cases, after breast augmentation, your breast is reshaped and reshaped. You get a natural result, in harmony with your figure.

Breast augmentation: how to give volume to your breast?

A true indicator of seduction, breasts are the object of much envy, especially among men. Thus, when the breast is small, flat or nonexistent, some women may feel self-conscious. This is why, today, breast augmentation is one of the most requested interventions in terms of breast surgery.

Breast augmentation: course of the operation

Before the operation, your surgeon will see you during a first consultation. This is an opportunity for him to know your history, but also to examine your chest to decide on the best technique to adopt.

If your surgeon chooses to increase the size of your breasts by placing breast implants:

  • 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.
