If there’s a look you’ve been dreaming of for yourself that you want purely for you, breast enhancements could be an option you want to consider. But before you make any decisions, it’s important you know all the facts and Dr Vivek Eranki from Cosmétique is here to deliver them. “Patients often undergo breast enhancement to boost their confidence,” he says. Bigger doesn’t always mean better, though, but rather it’s all about what you want. “All patients have different motivations to undergo surgery and we conduct a comprehensive consultation to ensure the surgery requested by the patients is consistent with their aesthetic end goals,” Dr Eranki says.
So, how does breast enhancement work? It can be done using saline or silicone breast implants or through fat transfer. The implant process involves placing implants either above or under the muscle to enhance your breasts. Implants come in many shapes and sizes so with the help of your surgeon, you can find the one consistent with your desired aesthetic goals. “At Cosmétique, we only use premium breast implant brands,” Dr Eranki says. “Our implants come with a lifetime warranty against ruptures and a 10-year warranty against capsular contracture.” On the other hand, breast fat transfer involves removing stubborn fat with liposuction and transplanting it to the breasts. If you’re worried about introducing an artificial material into your body, fat transfer could be more ideal and as it is less invasive than implant surgery, patients typically experience less discomfort and faster recovery. There’s also no scarring and no disruption to the muscle or its function.

Following surgery, you will need to wear a supportive bra for recovery and Dr Eranki suggests avoiding intense exercise or gym for six weeks. He also recommends regularly massaging the implants after initial recovery so they stay soft for their lifetime. Because a good recovery process is essential, it’s important you choose an ideal time for surgery that suits your lifestyle best.
