Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that women have been resorting to for over 5 decades. The women motivation may differ, from women in whom the breast has not developed enough, when the size decreased after pregnancy and breastfeeding, after major weight changes or simply by the aging process of the mammary gland. Whatever the case, breast augmentation not only contributes to the improvement of physical appearance, but also to the enhancement of self-esteem, which is often the supreme reason for a woman to undergo breast augmentation.
Through a small incision is introduced a flexible implant that will boost the mammary gland, increasing its volume. The implant is completely imperceptible and will be located behind the pectoral muscle or gland, so the woman will still be able to breastfeed and prevent breast cancer through exams.
At all stages, including the first consultation, there is a photo record of the body by the most advanced imaging equipment. For breast augmentation, Canfield’s Vectra XT 3D is used, which allows a 3D simulation of the final result according to the type of prosthesis and size chosen.
