BREAST AUGMENTATION (IMPLANTS)
Women choose to have breast augmentation surgery to balance the proportion between the breast and body, as well as gain a shapelier contour. Breast augmentation, one of the most popular and common cosmetic surgeries, involves the placement of a silicone breast implant beneath or over the chest muscle to increase breast size. In most cases, the incision is made either around the lower half of the nipple or under the breast crease, which leaves practically no scar resulting in a natural appearance. Dr Samer Bassilios Habre offers silicone breast implants or fat injection, depending on each unique patient case and their individual aesthetic goals. He blends surgeons skills and new techniques to create gorgeous results.
WHO IS THE BEST CANDIDATE?
Good candidates for breast augmentation are women who demonstrate:
Small breast size for body shape
Size discrepancy of breasts
Breasts that have become smaller and lost their firmness after having children
WHAT TO EXPECT?
The patient’s overall health, along with the current breast size and breast shape will be discussed during the initial consultation. Additionally, we will evaluate the underlying bone anatomy of the chest, the presence of breast masses (if any), the looseness of the skin of the breasts (if any) and the patient’s overall body shape in proportion to the breasts. Finally, measurements will be taken of the breasts to help determine the best implant size. This evaluation will help to develop a customized and individual breast augmentation plan.
THINGS TO CONSIDER
When choosing the right breast implant, the surgeon will discuss several aspects of the various implants that are offered today. Each implant is produced with varying profiles, which is the amount of projection the implant will offer. This is taken into consideration along with the chest wall and the breast base width. The goal is to find an implant that will fill the base width naturally, while at the same time offering a projection the patient will be happy with. Breast implants also come in various shapes (round or tear-shaped), and different textures. Our surgeon, Dr Samer Bassilios Habre, is an expert in breast surgery and augmentation; he will guide you to choose the right implant. The incision type and the implant placement will also be addressed. A common approach for the incision is either within the natural crease of the breast or along the nipple. Both of these techniques hide scarring and offer a natural result.
After breast augmentation surgery, patients are placed in a surgical dressing that may include a support bra or wrap. Swelling is expected after surgery. The swelling and bruising will start to resolve 1-2 weeks after surgery, although this will vary between patients. Usually patients may return to work within 3-5 days. Most patients can resume modest activity in 2 weeks and a complete recovery can be expected between 4-6 weeks after surgery.
