Goal: Breast augmentation and the improvement of the contour of the breast by using double coated textured cohesive gel-filled or smooth cohesive gel-filled implants.

Sub-glandular Breast Implant Placement (also known as "Overs"): breast implants placed below the breast gland but above the muscle. The term 'over' derives from the placement above the muscle.

Partial Sub-muscular Placement (Also Known as Dual Plan Placement): This placement has many names, but essentially the implant is placed partially below the muscle. This can also be referred to as partial submuscular, partial subpectoral, and, although it's not really correct, submuscular and subpectoral. Sometimes people even refer to this placement as 'unders', but that term should really be used for complete submuscular placement.

Complete Sub-muscular Breast Implant Placement (also known as "Unders"): Here the breast implant is placed completely below the muscle. This is correctly referred to as submuscular or subpectoral.

Inframammary Incision: Also known as breast crease or breast fold incision, your plastic surgeon makes this incision on the underside of your breast, near the breast crease.
Periareolar Incision: Your plastic surgeon makes this incision in the tissue surrounding your areola, the dark skin surrounding your nipple.
Transaxillary Incision: An incision made by your plastic surgeon in your armpit, away from the breast area.

Types of implants: Round (low, high and ultra high profile), anatomical and asymmetric.

Duration and anesthesia: 30 min - 1.5 hours in general anesthesia

Recovery: Usual activities can be done after a few days. Stitches will be removed after two weeks and a suspension bra will be recommended for 1 month.

Rare complications: Temporary sensitivity, disorder and mild edema which disappears within 2-4 weeks.
