About the Breast Augmentation

The idea of youthfulness for women has been fairly associated with how well structured their breasts are. But with time and because of several other reasons, the breasts may start drooping. This may diminish physical appeal and self-confidence.

There are many women in the fashion and entertainment industry who often go for breast augmentation surgery or mammoplasty to enhance their appearance. Many other women who feel low due to small breast size or drooping breasts undergo breast augmentation to feel better.

Women with bigger breasts, on the other hand, may decide to undergo a breast reduction. Breast reduction is also known as reduction mammoplasty.

Some of the reasons why a woman may decide to undergo breast augmentation include the following:

  • Naturally smaller breast size compared to the body as per age
  • Breasts have grown smaller or have drooped after childbirth and breastfeeding
  • Due to rapid weight loss, the breasts have drooped down
  • One breast is significantly smaller compared to the other breast due to a congenital condition or any other kind of trauma.
  • During gender transition

Drooping breasts or small-sized breasts can be a real problem when it comes to wearing clothes. A woman may also feel uncomfortable due to the non-uniformity of the two breasts or may feel heavy at times.

Breast augmentation is the second most popular surgical procedure performed on women in the US.  Silicone implants or many other kinds of gel-filled or saline-filled implants are inserted in the breast pocket to augment their size and make it look fuller and appealing.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation

  • A very simple process that does not require the patients to stay overnight
  • Morbidity and mortality rates are low
  • Enhances the overall beauty and appearance of a woman
  • Improves self-confidence
  • No visible scars left from the incision

How is Breast Augmentation performed?

Firstly, an incision is made in the skin covering the breast and the underlying tissue region. A pocket is created within the tissue region to place the breast implant.

All kinds of breast implants that are available have a filling material covered by an outer shell, which is composed of silicone elastomer. They are available in different shapes such as circular, oval directed projection-type or contoured-type. The latter types are called anatomic implants with tapering tips and fuller size at the bottom. The shape of these implants closely resembles the natural shape of the breasts of a fully grown mature woman.

The movement, weight, and feel of silicone gel-filled implants are very similar to that of natural breasts. The modern generation gel-type implants have a thick viscous fluid called a cohesive gel that always stays in place even if the outer shell gets damaged. Gel implants come pre-filled and sealed and as a result, they cannot be adjusted further in the operating room.

  • Silicone rubber shells are filled by surgeons with sterile salt water or saline in the operating room. If the implants start leaking, then saline used for an intravenous fluid of the body will be absorbed by the body without any harm. They are preferred because of their safety profile. The implants, in this case, are inserted empty by making a relatively smaller incision.
  • The surface of the implant can be smooth or textured. The texturing is important since it is thought that hardened scarring can be prevented around the implants. There will be lower chances of implant rupture since the textured surface is thicker. The implant also gets stabilized due to texturing, which is desired at times.
  • The pocket of the breast implants can be made in two positions. This is with respect to the pectoralis major muscle fascia, which is found deep in the breast or the breast tissue. When the pocket is made directly behind the breast tissue on top of the muscle fascia, then it is called subglandular placement. The advantage of this pocket is control of the shape of the breast and quick post-operative recovery. However, there remains a chance of seeing the edge of the implant under the skin.
  • In case of submuscular placement for implants, the pocket is made underneath the muscles of the chest wall. The contour of the breast looks smooth in this case as muscles hide the edges of the implants. There will be a lower chance of developing hard scars around the rim of the implant. Even nipple sensation is well protected.

Postoperative discomfort will be pertinent in this case. The recovery period can also be long in this case. The ability to have the upper breasts filled centrally will be less.

Recovery from Breast Augmentation

Recovery after breast enlargement depends on a number of factors such as the elasticity of the breast tissues, the size of the implant, position of the implant, and whether it is under or on top of the muscle. In case the implant has been placed on top of the muscle, pain is minimal and recovery period does not stretch beyond two days. A patient who has had implants placed under the muscle can experience some pain and may take longer to recover.

It is advisable to abstain from lifting activities or any other strenuous activity for the next two weeks. Retention of fluid and subsequent swelling can be avoided by doing so.

Keep taking the drugs prescribed by the surgeon but refrain from using them beyond the advised dosage even if the pain is bothering. Contact the surgeon immediately if you experience some other discomfort, including swelling, bleeding, fever, or inflammation.

What are the factors affecting the cost of Breast Augmentation in Israel?

While there are many factors that can affect the cost of breast augmentation surgery in Israel, here are a few factors one can keep in mind, in general -

  • Procedure: Admittedly, the cost of the surgery would vary based on the approach. Some cases require only a breast lift while on the other hand, some might require both a lift and an implant procedure. Especially, in the case of implants, the type of material used would also affect the overall cost of the procedure. Silicone implants are more expensive than saline and the cost generally increases with the size of implants. Fat transfers are also an option but in certain cases, this could be performed in a two-step procedure that in turn drives up the cost of treatment. Between two procedures, implants are the most preferred. Some hospitals waive off the cost of implants, hence the choice of surgeon and facility can significantly affect the charges of breast augmentation in Israel.

  • Location: The location of the clinic will also determine the cost of the procedure, if a facility is in the heart of the city then the price of surgery can vary accordingly.

  • Surgeon: A surgeon’s demand is also to be factored into the total cost since it is natural that skillful surgeons are in high demand, highly sought after and therefore, one would have to spend higher to seek their services. Other costs like the anesthetist’s fee, postoperative hospitalization period, and cost of medicines will add up into the net cost (and may or may not be covered by insurance companies).

    1. Inframammary or subpectoral incision - a popular choice of incision due to its discreet nature, the inframammary incision is made beneath the breast (in the breast fold). 

    1. Periareolar incision - also known as donut incision and most commonly used in the case of breast lift, this incision is made around the areola. Based on the requirement areolar incision could be extended into :

  •  Lollipop incision: include an incision around the areola along with a vertical incision from the edge of the areola towards the bottom of the breast - forming a lollipop shape.

  •  Anchor incision: the combination of ‘c’ shaped inframammary incision and the lollipop incision forming an anchor.

    1. Transaxillary incision - it is made underneath the armpit from where the surgeon accesses or fills into or implants the breasts often through an endoscopic instrument. 

    2. Transumbilical incision - it is made at the belly button and the breast is accessed through an endoscopic instrument.

2. Breast implants (surface) - Breast implants are made of silicone and are unusually concave patches that are inserted behind the breast tissue in order to accentuate the shape of the breasts. They come in round (commonly used) and teardrop-shaped (natural looking). Based on whether the patient requires a volume enhancement, the implants could be filled to give breasts the desired volume. This volume enhancement is known as a breast filler procedure. The fillers could be Silicon gel or Saline (saltwater). Saline is considered the safest among the two while the silicone gel gives a natural texture.
