How is the procedure performed?
Breast implantation surgery is generally done on general anesthesia.
Your surgeon will make incisions in inconspicuous areas to minimise visible scarring. Areas under the breasts, under the arms and around the nipples are usually points where incisions are made, depedning on the implant type and size.
After making the incision, the breast implant is inserted into either a submuscular (under the pectoral muscle) or a subglandular (over the pectoral muscle)pocket.
The method for inserting and positioning breast implants will vary depending on the type and size of the implant and anatomy of the patient.
After the implant placement, the incisions are closed with sutures or surgical staples.
