The Breast Augmentation is the placing of mammary implants in order to increase the size of the breasts, as well as achieving a symmetrical appearance of the chest. This is a procedure aimed at enlarging breasts that are naturally small, regain the volume lost after pregnancy or an excessive weight loss or get a better proportioned body and shape.
A permanent breast augmentation can only be achieved with a surgical procedure. There are no medical treatments that have the efficacy of theaugmentation mammaplasty or its satisfaction rate.
Am I a good candidate?
Good candidates are those women that are motivated by their personal wishes since this is the key factor that will make them feel satisfied with the results of the surgery. They must be in good health and cannot have any disease that may interfere with their healing process o risk their lives. It is preferable if they do not smoke and they have to be convinced that they want to improve their looks.

Are there other options?
There is no alternative treatment. Fat grafting or adipose tissue are not suitable for it, and the scientific research regarding that is very little.
What does the surgery consist of?
Once you’ve been through all the consults with Dra. Robles and arranged the kind, size and technique to put the implant, you will be ready to go into the operating room. On the day of the surgery, Dra. Robles will mark the areas he will treat in order to limit his work area, and he will take some pictures of those areas to measure the results. After this, the assisting team will sedate you and then they will locally anesthetize you in order to proceed with the surgery. Mammaplasty needs a cohesive gel implant in order to augment and “highlight” the breast according to the desired results.
The most common incisions done are the “underbreast”, “underarm” and “periareolar”. Incision patterns will depend on the kind of implant, the target size, the patient’s body and the doctor’s decision. Through the incision, the doctor will create a “pocket” whether behind the breast tissue, under the pectoral muscle, or the chest wall. The implant will be placed inside that pocket and the incision will be closed with non-removable or self absorbing stitches in the breast tissue, and adhesive stitches for the skin or taped shut.
The results of the breast augmentation will be visible immediately. As time goes by, the post-operation swelling and the incision marks will wear off. Your satisfaction will increase as the healing process takes place.
How is the recovery from the surgery?
When the procedure is completed, the doctor will place bandages over the incisions and you will need to use a compressing bra to reduce the swelling and to support the breasts as the healing occurs.
During the initial healing there will be swelling and inflammation in the area, as well as a discomfort feeling on the incision lines. All of these are normal symptoms which are easily manageable with the medication Dra. Robles will prescribe. The bra must be used for the following weeks until indicated otherwise. It is of vital importance that the incision areas are kept clean. After 5 to 10 days, some of the stitches will be removed, at that moment you will be able to take up your work as long as it doesn’t imply much effort. Anyway, the healing will continue for several more weeks, as the implant amalgamates with your body and the incision lines improve, even though these are permanent.
