Avané Clinic in Nairobi, Kenya offers Breast augmentation, or simply boob job, which is the surgical placement of breast implants to increase fullness and projection of the breasts or just to improve symmetry of the breasts. Breast augmentation is performed to enhance the size and shape of their natural bust line by surgically inserting an implant behind each breast, or by augmenting the breast volume with fat (lipofilling, fat grafting).
A feminine body image is important to many women, and that includes the appearance of the breasts. In fact, breast implants come in a variety of sizes, shapes and profiles to achieve a natural-looking physique. Other important features include the texture of an implant’s shell and the substance that fills the shell, like silicone.
Why go for Breast Enhancement/ Enlargement
If exercise and weight loss efforts have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to your overall body image, or if this has resulted in loose, saggy skin, then a surgical breast augmentation may be right for you.
This surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.
uring consultation with our specialists, you will be asked about the results you would like to achieve from your breast augmentation surgery. This will help us to understand your expectations and determine whether they realistically can be achieved.
How does the Breast Enhancement Procedure Performed?
There are a number of different techniques used to perform a breast augmentation, depending on the shape of the breast and the desired result. Implants can be placed either directly behind the breast (known as subglandular placement), or behind the breast and chest wall muscle (known as submuscular placement). The implants are usually inserted using an incision under the breast at the crease, which is he safest method, also used by Dr Stasch.
The Implant Placement – Behind the Breast
The insertion of implants behind the breast is considered to be the simplest of the available enlargement procedures, and the least likely to cause discomfort. This route is also the most effective for patients with slightly drooping breasts, resulting in fuller volume and better uplift. One must consider thou, that with this technique it is more difficult to create a natural shape in patients who are very thin.
The Implant Placement – Behind the Muscle
The insertion of implants behind the breast muscle provides more padding, which is a key consideration for slender patients and those with very little breast tissue where the edge of an implant may be detectable through the skin. The muscle provides extra cover and helps to hide the upper portion of the implant, and so is strongly recommended for those whose ribs are visible.
A Special Technique – The Dual Plane Operation
When slender women with slightly drooping breasts seek enlargement surgery, Dr Stasch often combine these two routes, placing the implants partly behind the breast and partly behind the muscle. Through this combined approach we give you the benefits of both techniques.
To enlarge the breast the implant is inserted either directly behind the breast itself or beneath the muscle behind the breast.
Implants can either be round or tear-shaped. Round implants provide a bigger volume at the top of the breast, along with a deeper cleavage. Tear-shaped implants, meanwhile, can look more natural. With either of these options, there are varying degrees of projection, depending on whether you want your augmented breasts to look subtle or more noticeably pert. Temporary implants, placed inside a bra, can help us to assess our options and make decisions about which implants will help you achieve the augmentation you desire.
Breast augmentation – The Operation
Breast enlargement surgery takes between one and one-and-a-half hours, and is done under general anaesthetic. The operation itself involves accessing and creating the pocket into which the implant will be placed, using the insertion route mentioned above: an approximately 6 cm incision will be placed on the lower outer edge of the breast-crease, making it almost invisible. Once the pocket has been created, the implant is inserted and the incision wound is stitched. The breast is then supported by adhesive tapes, which hold the breast in shape and allow a little compression.
The results of your breast augmentation surgery will be long-lasting. You will find it easier to wear certain styles of clothing and swim wear. Like many women who have had breast augmentation, you may also have a boost in self confidence.
It’s important to know that after receiving breast implants, results are not permanent, as your body ages, weight fluctuations and gravity, it is natural to lose some firmness and projection. The implants may require replacement during your lifetime. If, after a period of years, you become dissatisfied with the appearance of your breasts, you may choose to undergo a breast lift or implant exchange to restore a more youthful contour.
