What happens in a Breast Augmentation Implant procedure?

The doctor will first discuss the extent of enlargement and shape that can be given to your breasts.

The doctor will make incisions in the lower part of your breasts or along the underarm that gives the doctor better access to place the implant. The doctor will first insert a tissue expander to make adequate space for holding the breast implant in place. This tissue expander is then removed and the implant is placed and fixed to the proper place. The doctor will then stitch the incision close. The doctor might attach drainage tubes to your operated breasts for draining any excess fluid which might get collected.
