Breast Augmentation Choices:

Nowadays, it  is easy to have breast augmentation as today we have more choices and techniques available than ever that can help you customize your look to your requirements. Best plastic surgeons in Mumbai will explain to you all the options about procedures, and type of implants. Here are some choices that you will learn about during the consultation for breast augmentation

Filling types for breast augmentation procedure:

The choice of type of breast implant depends on the cost and incision requirements of individual patients. Your cosmetic surgeon will help find the right implant type for you. There are two basic types of implants used by top plastic surgeons in Mumbai:

  • Silicone gel or ‘Gummy Bear’ implants: These implants are filled with a plastic gel and they feel more natural similar to the real breasts. If the gel leaks then it can leak into breast implant pocket and the implant may collapse.
  • Saline implants: They are elastomer silicone pockets that are filled with sterile salt water. They can be pre filled or filled during the implant procedure. The amount of saline water in these implants effects their shape, firmness, and size. If the saline leaks then it is absorbed by the body and flushed out naturally.

Breast augmentation surgery using Fat grafting:

In this process, the fat is taken from the patient’s own body using the liposuction technique and is transferred in the breasts to increase the volume.


The shape of both silicon and saline gel implants is round and gummy bear implants come in shaped and round choices. Your plastic surgeon in India will suggest you the right shape for breast augmentation. Round implants are used to give a fuller look to the top of the breasts and shaped implants are used to add a slope to the side profile of breasts. Skilled cosmetic surgeons can deliver most natural look using the shaped implants.

Round implants ensure that the breast shape is maintained and the cost of breast augmentation using round implants is less than shaped implants. An experienced plastic surgeon can use a round implant vertically to give the desired results.

Contoured or tear drop breast implants are used by best plastic surgeons in India for breast reconstruction. They usually look oval shaped and add volume to the bottom of the breasts. However, the downside is that if they shift in position they can cause the breast shape to distort. Therefore, you need the services of skilled cosmetic surgeons at The Esthetic Clinics to create precise pockets with textured surface to make sure the contoured implants stay in place.


Your existing body proportions play an important role in deciding the choice of breast augmentation in Mumbai. If you have a short body frame then top plastic surgeons in Mumbai will suggest implants that give a higher profile and are not wide on the base.

Size: Breast implants come in a wide range of sizes and the suitable size for your body profile will depend on your goals and existing breast size. Some women might need different implant sizes to restore the symmetry in breast shape.


The surface of the implants for breast augmentation can be smooth or textured. Textured implants have little bumps on the surface and they reduce the risk of contracture. Smooth breast implants on the other hand are preferred by most cosmetic surgeons in Mumbai as they present a softer and more natural feel.

Placement of implants in breast augmentation surgery:

There are two types of placement methods employed by top cosmetic surgeons for the breast augmentation surgery.

Subglandular placement: The implant is placed behind the breast tissue. This type of implant is more suitable for correct sag in the breasts i.e. correct the drooping breasts. This type of implant is suitable for athletic women seeking breast augmentation. However, these implants have higher visibility and appear in mammograms, X rays of the chest area making it difficult for the doctors to detect abnormality.

Submuscular or subpectoral implant: The implant is placed behind the pectoralis chest muscles. This is the most common type of implant placement as it reduces the chances of shrinkage of the scar tissue. These implants have low visibility and are more stable. Submuscular implant placement is more suitable for women who want to increase the breast size considerably.   This type of placement has a longer recovery time.

Good plastic surgeons at The Esthetic Clinics are experts in both techniques and can customizethe breast augmentation surgery according to the patient’s tissue characteristics.

Breast Augmentation Surgery Procedure:

Breast augmentation surgery is mostly an outpatient procedure and is done under general anaesthesia. The time taken for the procedure will depend on the placement of incision and the position of the implant. One of the major concerns that most patients have for breast implants is the location and visibility of the scar. Top experienced plastic surgeons use different surgical techniques to place the breast augmentation incisions in such a way that the scar is easily hidden and unremarkable. There are four different incision procedures used in breast augmentation surgery.

Inframammary or sub pectoral: This type of incision method is most commonly used for breast augmentation by best cosmetic surgeons.  In this process, an incision is placed under the crease of the breast (the inframammary fold). This way the scar is hidden under the crease.


  • Gives the breast augmentation surgeon a wider access in the breast to place large implants with ease.
  • Gives direct control to place gummy bear implants with precision.
  • Does not affect milk-producing areas of the breasts.

This type of incision procedure is suitable for women who are older and have had children since a natural amount of sag is already present in the breasts. The same incision cannot be used for additional breast augmentation surgery or correct complications

Peri-areolar incision technique: The incision is made around the edge of the nipple areolar complex and the scar blends with the natural colour pigmentation of the edges around the areola. After making the incision the surgeon can insert the implant in the tissue or behind the pectoral muscles.


  • Can be coupled with mild to moderate breast lifts at the same time
  • The same incisions can be used for further breast augmentation surgeries.
  • Suitable for women with small breasts
  • Greater control over implant placement

In this incision, procedure there is some risk of damage to the milk ducts and some women might feel difficulty in breastfeeding.

Trans-axillary: A small incision of about 2.5 cms is made in the natural folds of the armpit and the implant is inserted either above or below the muscles. This type of breast augmentation procedure is done with the help of an endoscope.


  • No scars on the breast
  • Saline implants are preferred for this procedure
  • Less chances of damage to the mammary glands

This type of incision method makes it difficult to correct any post-operative problems and additional incisions are required for further surgeries. In addition, this type of breast augmentation surgery gives lesser control to the plastic surgeon over implant placement.

Transumbilical: or TUBA or Umbilical Breast Augmentation A small incision is made above the belly button and an endoscope is used to create a pocket under the breast. The implant is inserted through the incision and brought up the breast.


  • This is the shortest breast augmentation surgery technique and the average time takes only about 45 minutes.
  • Faster recovery
  • No visible scar on the breasts and the scar on belly button is easily hidden

However, the TUBA inserting technique for breast augmentation surgery only allows the use of subglandular saline implants and has an increased chance of damage. Chest discomfort and abdominal swelling is are common side effects of this type of breast implant incision. In addition, TUBA implants are not covered under warranty.

The choice of incision for your breast augmentation surgery in Mumbai will depend on your anatomy, the amount of enlargement required, and the type of implant selected.  Top cosmetic surgeons in Mumbai will discuss the options in detail with you.

Top cosmetic surgeons in Mumbai also use non-surgical aids such as Botox and Dermal fillers to aid to the breast augmentation procedure.

Life after breast augmentation surgery

After  days of the breast augmentation surgery, you might feel that the implants are sitting high on the chest but this is very normal and as the implants settle in they will mould in the natural body shape and you will only get to enjoy the ‘new breast’. To maintain the implants make sure that you

  • Go regular breast screen as prescribed by the doctor
  • If you have silicone implants then go for periodic monitoring like mammogram, or MRP to check for any damage
  • Pregnancies and weight changes affect the result of breast augmentation and therefore if you see any changes then a corrective surgery might be needed.
  • Wear adequate and proper support suited to your activity level to ensure there is no unnecessary sagging.
  • If you are planning to get pregnant then wait for at least six months after the surgery

Implants usually last for about 10-12 years and if you are young woman then you might need implant replacement in future. The team at The Esthetic Clinics will set up follow up appointments to ensure there are no complications or problems.
