Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, also known as Boob Job or Breast Enlargement, is one of the top cosmetic surgeries in Dubai (United Arab Emirates). Breast augmentation can be done by placing an implant or fat tissue into your breasts to add volume. A surgeon can also replace lost tissue resulting from pregnancy, weight loss, or menopause in this procedure. This boob job allows women to recover more quickly than with breast lift surgery. Breast implants use silicone or saline to fill the augmented area of the breast. If implants are not used, fat can be transferred from another part of the body to create natural-looking breasts.

Breast augmentation, also called augmentation mammoplasty, enlarges and reshapes breasts. Some examples of what this procedure may achieve:

  • Increase fullness and projection of breasts
  • Restore or create fuller curves in the upper third of the breast
  • Correct minor deformities such as misshapen nipples caused by pregnancy or breast-feeding

How is the procedure performed?

The first step is to make incisions. The site and the pattern of incisions vary depending on the breast augmentation technique being used. Once the incisions are made, pockets are created in the breasts for the insertion of implants. Implants can be inserted either above the pectoral muscles or beneath them. Silicone implants are inserted pre-filled while saline implants are filled with saline solution after insertion. In the end, the incisions are closed with sutures.

Types of Breast Augmentation In Dubai

There are three main types of breast augmentation surgery which include;

  • Scarless Breast Augmentation
  • Short Scar Breast Augmentation
  • AFT Breast Augmentation Dubai

Scarless Breast Augmentation

It is a cosmetic procedure that focuses on improving the aesthetic appearance of the breasts with the additional goal of making the scars invisible or well hidden from the naked eye. Incisions would be made in the sites that are minimally visible. So, even if a small scar is formed, it will not be visible. Scar formation is a very rare scenario in scarless breast augmentation in Dubai. The common locations for incisions are;

Armpit Incisions: This type of incision is usually made in the armpit area which is away from the breasts and is the best place to hide scars. The axilla or armpit incision eventually blends in with the creases in the armpits’ skin after the healing period. Therefore, it is the best option for an invisible scar breast augmentation.

Under the Breast Incision: This type of incision is strategically made under the crease of the breasts. Incisions made are usually four to five centimeters per breast area.

Umbilical Incision: This incision does not leave any scars on the breasts because it is far away from the breast area. However, the umbilical incision is not much popular among surgeons.

Short Scar Breast Augmentation

Short scar breast augmentation is a surgical procedure designed by expert breast surgeons for patients who complain about having prominent scars after augmentation surgery. The surgeons usually use saline implants for short scar breast augmentation in Dubai. It is because saline implants can be rolled like a cigar and inserted into the pockets made by the incision. The incision is made behind each breast to create a pocket. This pocket provides space, allowing the insertion of implants into the breast tissues. The size of the incision is about 1.7 cm that shrinks to 1.5 cm during the healing phase.

AFT Breast Augmentation

AFT breast augmentation increases the size of breasts without using breast implants. In this type of breast augmentation, excess fats are transferred from one part of the body to the breasts.


Breast augmentation Dubai provides the following benefits;

  • It enhances the curves and contours of the body by making breasts proportional to the rest of the body.
  • It results in a more positive self-image.
  • It boosts your confidence.
  • The procedure provides aesthetic benefits and increases clothing options for you.

Results of Breast Augmentation in Dubai

After breast augmentation surgery, you will observe an immediate increase in breast size. However, the final results will appear once the swelling has disappeared and the skin stretching has been completed. It can take a few weeks but in the end, you will get the desired shape and size. The scars caused by breast augmentation in Dubai take months to fade away. To achieve optimal breast augmentation results, follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions, and go for follow-up visits.

Breast Augmentation FAQs

What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation Dubai or augmentation mammoplasty refers to a surgical procedure that enhances your breast silhouette by giving you the desired shape and size. It makes your breasts larger and fuller according to your requirements. It is also known as breast implant surgery or breast reconstruction surgery. This procedure can be performed both as an outpatient procedure and as an inpatient procedure under general anesthesia. 

Why opt for Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation can be undergone to increase the shape or size of breasts and enhance their texture to make them look fuller and bigger. You can also get it for reconstruction purposes if you have lost breasts due to mastectomy or for the correction of deformities. However, you should know that breast augmentation cannot be done to correct sagging breasts. For that, you need to have breast lift surgery. Breast enhancement Dubai aims at;

Increasing the breast volume 
Reducing breast asymmetry 
Improving the balance of breasts and hip contours 
Boosting your self-image and confidence.

Who is an ideal candidate for breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation Dubai is suitable for the following candidates;

Women who have small breasts or hypoplastic breasts.
Women who have lost breast size after pregnancy or weight loss. 
Women with asymmetrical breasts 
Women suffering from tuberous breast deformity 
Women who have lost breasts during cancer treatment and require reconstruction.

However, the most important thing is the age bracket. You should be 18 or above because at this age your breasts are fully developed.

What type of implants are used?

Usually, three main types of implants are used in breast augmentation surgery which include the following;

Silicone Implants
Saline Implants 
Fat Graft Implants 

Silicone Implants

Silicone implants are filled with silicone gel and are suitable for women who are 22 or above. They are long-lasting and feel more like real breasts but pose more risk in case they leak. Nowadays, highly cohesive silicone implants known as Gummy Bear Implants are also used.

Saline Implants 

They are filled with sterile saltwater and are suitable for women who are 18 or above in age. Saline breast implants Dubai do not give a natural feel but can be inserted with a small incision.

Fat Graft Implants

They are harvested from the person’s own body and used in breast enlargement surgery. Such implants are very effective but there is a limitation. Only one cup of fat can be implanted and harvested which makes it good for a small amount of breast enlargement only.

The type of implant used depends entirely on the receiver of surgery and the results you expect from the surgery. The surgeon will decide what type of material should be used and his/her decision will be based on your expected results.

What are incision options for Breast Implants?

There are four options to make incisions for breast augmentation in Dubai which are as follows;


In this technique, a small incision is made below the breasts at the breast fold line which is also known as an inframammary fold. This leaves a small and thin scar that is only 1 to 2 inches in size and can be easily concealed in the inframammary fold. This type of incision creates a large access point which allows the surgeon to place larger implants such as Gummy Bear with accuracy.


In this type of technique, an incision is made in the umbilical area to insert the implant. It is not commonly performed and is used for saline implants only.


In this technique, an incision is made below the areola in the shape of a half-moon. It is normally used for women with large nipple-areola complex.


In this technique, the scar is made in the armpit area. The implant is placed in the armpit by using a specialized camera and special instruments are used to ensure good placement. The advantage of this procedure is that it causes no scar on the breasts. 

How are the breast implants placed?

The breast surgeons use two ways for implant placement;

Submuscular placement – under the chest 
Subglandular placement – under the breast glands

Submuscular Placement

It makes sure that breast implants cannot be felt through the skin easily and are properly covered by the muscles. Also, it provides a better image of the breast.

Subglandular Placement 

It is a quick implant placement procedure and has a short recovery period.

What are the shapes of the implants?

Saline and Silicone implants come only in round shapes while gummy bear implants come in a variety of shapes. The round shape will give its maximum advantage to the upper part of breasts and they will appear firmer while the shaped implants will give sloppy look to the breasts. When performed by a skilled surgeon both the round and shaped implants look very natural.

How long does the surgery take?

Breast augmentation surgery normally takes 1 to 1.5 hrs. However, if you are undergoing more extensive surgery, it can take longer.

Is breast augmentation painful?

Yes, you will experience pain after the surgery for a couple of days but it is manageable. Your surgeon will prescribe certain pain medications for this purpose.

Can I breastfeed after the surgery?

Yes, you can breastfeed after the surgery. However, it depends on a couple of factors such as the type of incisions made and placement of the implant. If the incision is made under the breast and the implant is placed behind the muscle, the breast tissue is least disturbed. No, Guarantees can be made about the possibility of breastfeeding.

What size of the implant is good for me?

It is the decision of your surgeon to choose the most suitable size and type of implant for you. The size of the implant is determined by several factors. Our surgeons take into consideration your weight, height, chest size, the current volume of the breast, and the size you desire. We will show you pictures of the other patients who were of the same size as you are and had undergone breast augmentation. From these pictures, you can get a fairly good idea about the size of the breast you want.

Is breast augmentation permanent?

Breast implants can last for 15 years but after that, you will have to replace them. Or you will have to remove them in case they rupture.

Am I too old for the Breast augmentation surgery?

There is no age limitation for breast augmentation surgery. Women in their 40’s and 50’s can also undergo it. 

What Is The Cost of Breast Augmentation?

These factors include the expertise of your surgeon, your desired results, selection of technique and location of the clinic, etc. So, if you would like to know the exact cost, you have to consult with your surgeon. 

How Long Is the Recovery?

The recovery period of breast augmentation is generally small which is why it is popular among women. If you have undergone breast augmentation on an outpatient basis then you can go home soon after the surgery.  

After completing the surgery, your breasts will be bandaged and you will be asked to wear an elastic bra that reduces swelling and offers support to the breasts. Most of the patients experience more pain and discomfort during the initial three days. Therefore, painkillers and antibiotics are prescribed to control this pain. 

Usually, it takes about a week to get back to the normal routine and work. You can walk as an exercise during the recovery process but avoid rigorous activities like aerobics. You should not lift heavy loads during the first ten days of recovery. Also, it is advisable to take a week off from work. Your surgeon will also suggest some vitamins that will aid the process of recovery.
