Breast augmentation (mammoplasty) or breast augmentation, is probably the most performed procedure in the world, after liposuction. There are basically two types of breast implants: silicone and saline. Both are very suitable because they do not harm the patient at any time. The breast augmentation medically known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the size and shape of the breast for different reasons:

To improve the figure of the body.
To correct the bust volume after a pregnancy.
To balance the size of the bust.
As reconstructive surgery after breast surgery.
Implantation Pathways: Bust implants can be introduced through the following routes:

Submammary pathway: through an incision located in the submammary fold.

Via areolar: the incision is located at the boundary of the areola-nipple complex.
Axillary route: the prosthesis is inserted through an incision located at the bottom of the axillary dome.

  • Subglandular: under the mammary gland and on the aponeurosis of the pectoralis major muscle.
  • Subpectoral: between the pectoralis major muscle and the costal plane
  • Subfascial: between the aponeurosis and the pectoral muscle.
  • The breast implant is an outpatient surgery. This procedure is performed under anesthesia, depending on the case it can be with local, sedation, epidural or general. Recovery is rapid and requires rest around 7 – 10 days. Both the route of introduction and the situation of the prosthesis depend on the assessment of each case and the expectations of each patient.
