Breast augmentation is enlargement of the breasts by the surgical insertion of breast implants to improve the shape and size of the breasts. The procedure is commonly known as a boob job and it is the number one procedure carried out in Brazil . There are lots of reasons why women choose to have breast augmentation. They may have very small breasts and struggle with their confidence or their breasts may have changed since becoming a parent. Whatever the reason, having breast surgery can replenish self-esteem and make women feel great about themselves again.
Why might you consider Breast Augmentation in Dubai?
Women get Breast augmentation in Dubai, technically known as augmentation mammoplasty, a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breast for a number of reasons:
- To enhance the body contour of a woman who, for personal reasons, feels her breast size is too small.
- To correct a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy.
- To balance a difference in breast size.
- As a re-constructive technique following breast surgery.
By inserting an implant behind each breast, our Brazilian plastic surgeon in Dubai, Dr Ricardo Ferla is able to increase a woman’s bust line by one or more bra cup sizes.
When indicated, breast implants are used along with other surgery to remove excess skin, for example, combining breast augmentation with a breast lift.
What are breast implants?
A breast implant is also called a prosthesis. It is a shell made of medical silicone, filled with silicone gel or occasionally with saline (sterile salt water). Some implants are round and others are shaped more like a natural breast referred to as tear drop or anatomical implants. Either can give excellent results.
Whatever the filling of the implant, the outer layer is made of silicone which is a firm type of material referred to as silicone elastomer. Silicon is a naturally occurring element which is manufactured into many items including cosmetics, foods and medical implants.
We use only the best implants from Europe, The United States and Brazil.
Before the Surgery
There are various ways in which Dr Ricardo Ferla may operate on you, depending upon where you would like your scars to be and the shape and size of your breasts. Different types of incision include:
Intramammary Fold – This is a common way to put in breast implants, through incisions in the crease underneath each breast.
Periareolar Incision – This is made around the nipple and is a good choice for someone who is worried about having too much scarring as the scars are minimal.
Axillary Incision – This is where the incision is made under the armpits.
You will be able to discuss the type of surgery with Dr Ferla beforehand and to make an informed decision about which procedure would be best for you.
A few days before the surgery, you will be asked to give a blood sample, and various important tests are conducted to make sure the surgery will be safe for everyone involved.
During the Breast Augmentation Surgery in Dubai
After being admitted into a local hospital, a general anesthesia or an intravenous sedation combined with local anesthesia is given to the patient for the operation, which takes about 1 to 1½ hours. A space for the implant is made under the breast or under the chest muscle below the breast and the implants are then put in place. Depending on the aesthetic of the implants, Dr Ricardo Ferla may make adjustments to the size of the implant to gain the optimal look.
Some patients may experience some pain or mild temporary discomfort for a few days after surgery and your breasts may feel tight or have a mild to moderate swelling. Breasts may be sensitive to stimulation for a few weeks.
As the operation is quick it is usually done as a day case, so provided you feel well enough you may be able to go home on the same day. You can return to work within a few days.
Scars should fade and flatten anywhere from two months to one year after surgery, depending upon how the individual patient heals.
