Surgery

  • Breast Augmentation through Implants: There are various breast implants techniques and the choice of the technique depends upon the case and your expectation. The different breast implants procedures are;
  • Scarless Breast Augmentation: This surgery is performed under general anesthesia, and it lasts for two to three hours. In this procedure, incisions are made either on the armpit zone or under the breasts. Incisions are not going to be longer than 1.7 cm so that there are no scars. A small patch is made near the incisions under the chest muscles to insert implants through them. Then, implants are filled with a solution called saline or silicone via a tube on the incision. After making sure that the implants are filled according to the candidate’s desired size, they are closed through a self-sewing valve. In the end, incisions are closed in a way that no scar is visible
  • Short Scar Breast Augmentation: Performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia, short scar breast augmentation is administered before starting the procedure, and it lasts for two to three hours. In the procedure, small unnoticeable incisions behind breasts are made. Pockets are made near the incisions and implants are inserted. The surgeon usually uses saline implants for this technique, because it can be rolled like a cigar and can be inserted into the pockets easily. After their proper implantation, incisions are closed through stitches.
  • AFT Breast Augmentation: Autologous Fat Transfer is an outpatient procedure which takes approximately two hours. The surgeon will first analysis the fat-enriched area and then make small incisions on the donor areas, and they mostly include thighs and hips. The extra fat is extracted out through liposuction using a cannula and a suction pump. The withdrawn fat is then filtered, and all the impurities, including the blood and other harmful fluids, are removed. Afterward, the incisions are closed with sutures. The pure fatty liquid gets ready for implantation and is injected into the breast tissue and under the skin of the breast. The fat is massaged and molded to produce a uniform breast enlargement.

Post Surgery
