Breast Augmentation in Dubai

Breasts have always been one of the most charming and attractive features of a woman’s body. Some women are blessed with nice, firm, and attractive breasts, while others opt for other methods to get their desired breasts. Among all methods, breast augmentation is considered the best procedure to enlarge, firm, and enhance the looks of your breasts.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons says that breast augmentation surgery is among the top 5 performed cosmetic surgeries globally. This surgery is carried out also for reconstructive purposes like after mastectomy for breast cancer.

The main goal of breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery is done for three reasons: to increase breast size, to restore the bust that has lost its shape, and to give symmetry to the breast that has different shape and size from each other.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation Surgery

Some of the benefits of Breast Augmentation are:

  • It helps to increase the size, shape, and fullness of the breasts.
  • 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 and boosts your confidence.
  • It can also correct any imbalance between the breasts.
  • The results of Breast Augmentation are usually lasting well over ten years.
  • Breast implants are highly customizable, so you can select a size that works best for your body type and lifestyle.
  • It can correct an excessively flat chest, help you achieve a better appearance after pregnancy or dramatic weight loss, and reconstruction the breasts after a mastectomy or breast cancer.

The ideal candidate for breast augmentation

Doctors and certified boards have defined specific terms and conditions for breast augmentation. You are an ideal candidate for breast enlargement if you fulfill the following criteria. 

  • You are in good health condition and have no severe infection or untreated cancer
  • The breasts are asymmetrical or flattened, or you want to get rid of cleavage lines
  • According to FDA, you must be 18 years old for breast augmentation
  • You are not consuming a significant amount of alcohol

How You Prepare For Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation requires a lot of in-depth research. For that purpose, you will have to meet with your doctor to find out your preferred size. The surgeon will provide a thorough guideline about the different breast implants –round or teardrop-shaped, saline or silicone gel, and smooth or textured.

Pre-procedure care

  • Avoid smoking about 4-6 weeks before and after surgery
  • Let your family or friends know about your surgery so that they can drive you back home after the surgery
  • Your surgeon may suggest you avoid some medication like aspirin before the surgery.

What are the types of breast augmentation?

Generally, there are two types of breast augmentation: 

  • Breast implant
  • Fat transfer

Breast implants in breast augmentation surgery

Before entering the operation room, the surgeon will draw marks on your breast that will help him know exactly where to make the incision and where to place the implants.

  • In the operating room, the doctor will apply anesthesia to the lower back. This injection is better known as an epidural. The injection will help the patient feel no pain during the procedure.
  • Afterward, following the previously made mark, the surgeon will make an incision 3-4 centimeters long below the natural fold of the breast.
  • After that, the surgeon will use an electrocautery device, a medical instrument that applies heat and helps separate tissues to prevent bleeding.
  • With the same device, the surgeon will separate the fat from the muscle to create a pocket-like space where the implant will be placed. This technique is known as sub-glandular.
  • The surgeon will place the implant in the correct position.
  • The incision will then close with sutures.
  • This surgery lasts between 45 minutes and 2 hours.

Difference between saline and silicone gel implants

  • A saline implant is filled with sterile salt water. Some of them are inserted empty and then filled with saline, while others are pre-filled.
  • Silicone gel implants are filled with a plastic gel called silicone. Some women prefer it because it feels more natural than saline. However, it carries more risk if it leaks.
  • When saline implants rupture, the saline is absorbed by the body. However, when silicone implants rupture, the Silicone gel may remain inside the implant shell.
  • The saline implant deflates when it leaks. But the silicone implant shows no obvious symptoms

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

Fat transfer breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure in which a surgeon takes fat cells from your hips, thighs, back, arms, or stomach and then injects them into your breast. This procedure is done to enlarge your breasts.

Post-procedure care

For the next four to six weeks, you should follow these steps

  • Avoid raising your arms above the shoulder
  • Avoid carrying, pulling, and pushing heavy objects.
  • Wear a special bra
  • Attend weekly check-ups
  • Keep the wound clean

  • Changes in sensation in the nipple
  • Scarring
