Breast Surgery

It’s your body, it’s your choice. Breast Augmentation is more than breast implants, it’s about changing the way you look and feel about yourself. Learn more about the procedure and your options with GCA®.

What is it?

Aesthetic breast surgery includes breast augmentation, reduction, and mastopexy (breast lift), which are performed using tissue rearrangement techniques or by using breast implants.

Breast Augmentation

Also referred to as augmentation mammoplasty, it involves using breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of your breasts. This procedure can also restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy, achieve a more rounded breast shape or improve natural breast size asymmetry.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size more in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with excessively large breasts (macromastia).

Breast lift

Also known as mastopexy, raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour.

What should I expect during the procedure?

You and your Surgeon have decided your anesthesia, incision, breast implants and placement before surgery.

When your surgery takes place, be sure it’s a certified hospital that has every mean to care for you in case of an emergency. It’s unlikely, but it’s better to be cautious and safe.

Once your anesthesia takes effect, your Plastic Surgeon will make the incision to place the breast implants.

Your surgeon will place and position the implants depending on the type of implant, degree of enlargement and your body type.

The Surgeon will close the incisions. You will see instant results, however, the final results will set in until up to 3 months later. Remember to use a post-operative bra for your comfort.
