Breast Augmentation with Implants

We understand that the desire to alter the size, shape, or overall appearance of your breasts comes from personal aspirations unique to you. Your reasons are deeply personal, and our mission is to support those desires. We are fully prepared to guide you on this journey. For numerous women, the proportion and aesthetics of their breasts play a significant role in feeling vibrant, alluring, and self-assured. Achieving a certain level of fitness and body shape through exercise is possible, yet if you find that your natural breast shape doesn’t align with your vision, surgical intervention might present the most effective solution.

What is a Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation, or mammoplasty, is a bespoke surgical option designed to enhance or modify the shape, volume, and overall size of your breasts. This procedure can involve the insertion of implants either behind the breast tissue or beneath the chest muscles, with options for implants filled with either a saline solution or a silicone-based material. Alternatively, some patients may opt for fat transfer breast augmentation, utilising their own body fat harvested from different areas to achieve a natural increase in breast size and shape. Typically, the selection of the implant type and size, as well as the surgical incision sites and whether to position implants below or above the chest muscles, is made by the patient, supported by the expert advice and guidance of our aesthetic surgeons. At Laragh Medical, we are committed to providing personalised care to ensure outcomes that align with our patients’ visions and desires.

Are you a Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

In Ireland, it’s essential that an individual’s breasts are fully developed before considering breast augmentation. While specific age regulations may vary, it’s generally advised that patients reach a certain age to ensure physical maturity before undergoing this type of surgery. For those contemplating breast augmentation at Laragh Medical, we underscore the importance of understanding all aspects of the procedure:
Individuals opting for silicone gel implants should be prepared for follow-up care, including MRI examinations. Initially, this may be advised three years post-surgery and subsequently around every two years to monitor for potential leaks or ruptures of the implants. It’s also important to be aware that breast augmentation can sometimes complicate mammography exams and, in certain instances, may affect breastfeeding capabilities. At Laragh Medical, our priority is to ensure that you are fully informed and comfortable with all aspects of your breast augmentation journey, aligning with Ireland’s health regulations and best practices.

Types of Breast Implants

Implants vary in terms of their shape, profile, and size. Both saline and silicone gel implants are generally available in round shapes, whereas the more robustly cohesive “gummy bear” implants offer both shaped and round varieties. Regarding the implant profile, your cosmetic surgeon at Laragh Medical will assist in selecting the most suitable option that aligns with your personal aspirations and your body’s natural proportions. The sizes of breast implants can range from approximately 150cc to 800cc or even slightly larger in some cases. The choice of implant size for your breast augmentation will be influenced by your current breast dimensions, your desired aesthetic outcome, and the professional guidance and recommendations provided by your surgeon.

Is Breast Augmentation Safe?

Breast augmentation is considered a secure procedure when carried out by a qualified and board-certified plastic surgeon. It’s entirely understandable to have queries regarding the safety of breast implants, and our surgeons at Laragh Medical are committed to assisting you in comprehending the potential risks, thereby enabling you to make well-informed choices regarding your surgery. Extensive research conducted over the last ten years has consistently affirmed the safety of both saline and silicone gel breast implants.

Recovery And Fftercare

At Laragh Medical, we advise our patients to take a gentle approach to recovery following their breast augmentation procedure. Your doctor will arrange a follow-up appointment to remove any sutures and drainage tubes. It’s likely you’ll be required to wear a surgical bra for several weeks to support the healing process.
