In your first consultation with Dr. Vishal Patel a full evaluation will be performed. Taking into account the size, shape, firmness of the skin, your expectations and your general health, you can plan the most appropriate procedure to achieve the best possible result in each case.

Breast Anatomy

The breast is formed by adipose, glandular and fibrous tissue. Inside it, there are blood vessels, lactated ducts, fat, glands and sensory nerves. Underneath the breast is the muscle that assists in arm movement.

Who is the ideal candidate to have breast augmentation in Mumbai?

Those women who want to increase the size of their breasts, either because they consider that their current silhouette is too small, that there is a disproportion between both breasts or because, as a result of considerable weight loss or pregnancy, the breast has become empty.

Before surgery

During the first consultation, we will evaluate the size and shape of your breasts, the firmness of the skin and the general state of health.

We will contrast the different surgical techniques, discuss the desired shape and size and the options or combination of procedures that are best for your specific case. You must expose your expectations in a sincere and frank way, so that the plastic surgeon in Mumbai detects the most important points and shows you the alternatives available to achieve the desired objective, with the risks and limitations of each of them. You will also be explained what type of anesthesia will be used, the need or not to enter the clinic where the surgery is performed and the costs of the intervention.

Do not forget to tell if you are a smoker or take any medication or vitamin. Do not hesitate to ask any questions that arise, especially those related to your expectations about the results.

Preparing for surgery

You will be given instructions about how to prepare for surgery, including rules about taking food and liquids, taking or suppressing medications, vitamins and iron supplements, and stopping smoking. Also make sure that a family member or companion can take you home when you are discharged and that, if necessary, they can help you some days.

Surgical technique and anesthesia


Breast augmentation in Mumbai is usually performed using one of the three most common incisions: around the areola (periareolar), inframammary (inframammary) or in the armpit ((transaxillary).

  • Periareolar – This incision has the advantage of being more hidden.
  • Inframammary – Very popular access because the scar is hidden in the groove below the breast.
  • Transaxilla – Good option for women who do not want breast scars.

Your doctor will explain each type of incision in more detail, to help you choose the one that suits you best.

Implant Position

During the breast augmentation procedure, your implants may be positioned below the thoracic muscle (submuscular) or over the muscle and below the mammary glands (subglandular).

  • Submuscular position In: this position, there is a reduction in the possibility of your implants being felt through the skin. It can even facilitate the examination of your breasts during a mammogram.
  • Subglandular position: In this position, the recovery time may be shorter.

Your doctor can talk to you about which of the two implant placement options is related to your individual needs.

How is Breast Augmentation Surgery?

This intervention is performed in an operating room and lasts between one and two hours. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and the patient is usually discharged the next day.

Breast augmentation is done through a small incision. Depending on the patient’s anatomy and the preferences of plastic surgeon in Malad, the cut can be made in the groove under the chest or around the areola so that the scar is as little visible as possible.

After surgery

After breast augmentation in Mumbai, it is normal to find yourself somewhat tired and sore for a few days, but you will be able to live almost normal life after 4-5 days. Most discomfort is well controlled with the medication prescribed by your plastic surgeon, although you may notice occasional discomfort for a couple of weeks. It is normal to have a burning sensation in your nipples for the first two weeks.

The stitches are resorbable so, in general, you do not have to remove stitches; the edema does not completely subside until 3 or 6 weeks.

After a breast augmentation in Mumbai you can return to work in a few days, depending on the activity you perform. We will give you all the instructions about what exercises you can perform at any given time; you should avoid lifting objects above your head for 2 to 3 weeks. At first, the scars will be pink, an appearance that will improve continuously from 6 weeks. Controls with ultrasound and mammography appropriate for each woman according to age can continue to be performed, although the existence of the prosthesis should be noticed. The operation does not interfere with the ability to breastfeed in case of pregnancy.

Are there risks? Are there guarantees?

Breast augmentation in Mumbai is a safe technique, as long as it is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon.

However, as in any operation, there can always be complications and associated risks. Breast augmentation can cause capsular contracture, which occurs when the internal scar that forms around the implant contracts excessively, causing the breast to become harder. It can be treated in various ways, sometimes requiring the removal of the internal scar and the replacement of the prosthesis.

Another complication, typical of any surgery, is the hematoma that only in specific cases requires a new intervention to eliminate the accumulated blood. An infection around the prosthesis is extremely rare. Some women notice more or less sensitive nipples, and even, sensation may be lost. These changes are usually temporary, although in a few cases they will be permanent. There is no evidence that breast prostheses affect fertility, pregnancy or breastfeeding.

The results

Upon discharge you will be provided with a direct telephone number of Dr Vishal Patel for emergency cases and available 24 hours a day. In addition, a detailed postoperative follow-up is carried out with the necessary cures to verify that the treatment follows a favorable evolution.
