HOW WILL THE PROCEDURE BE PERFORMED?
The breast implant can be placed either partially under the pectoralis major muscle (submuscular) or on top of the muscle and under the breast glands (subglandular), depending on the thickness of your breast tissue and its ability to adequately cover the breast implant. You should discuss with your surgeon the pros and cons of the implant placement selected for you.
Incisions can be placed either in the armpit , around the nipple or areolae, which usually enlarge in proportion to the increased breast size, or in the lower breast crease.
The space is madding exactly in the right place and position to correspond to the exact type of implant.
The surgeon will start by measuring your breast base width. Implants come in a variety of widths. You and your surgeon will also want to discuss cup size. Implants come in a variety of volumes and, generally, the larger you want your cup size, the larger the breast implant the surgeon will consider.
Your surgeon will also evaluate your existing tissue to determine if you have enough tissue to cover the breast implant.
A breast implant that is too large for your tissue can result in excessive stretching of the skin and result in the need for future corrective surgeries.
In addition, the implant edges may be apparent or visible postoperatively. Also, excessively large breast implants may speed up the effects of gravity and result in earlier droop or sag.
In addition to size, you will also be able to determine if you want to re-shape your breast. Some implants give the breast a more rounded appearance, while others create a breast shaped like a teardrop.
TYPE OF IMPLANTS
There are two contemporary types of breast implant filler materials with many different shapes and textures available:
Saline, which have a silicone rubber shell filled with sterile saline liquid.
Silicone gel, which have a silicone shell filled with a viscous silicone gel. In the 80 countries where silicone implants are available, they are used in approximately 90-95% of implant operations. The silicone gel used in breast implants has been shown to be biocompatible and reliable, making it an appropriate choice for an implantable medical device.
Both saline and silicone gel breast implants are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The choice of implant filler, implant size, shape and other features will be determined based on your breast anatomy, body type and your desired increase in size. Your lifestyle, goals and personal preferences, as well your plastic surgeon’s recommendations and sound surgical judgment are also determining factors.
As our patients come from all over the world, we give you the possibility to choose the brand and type of implant according to your preference and the implants used in your own country. All the implants we use are FDA approved.
You will be able to choose:
US implants (brands: Mentor and Inamed).

Only the surgeons with the flexibility to offer a range of implant options can deliver your One Right Result.
From the many options available, you will select with your surgeon the appropriate implant based upon your goals of surgery and your unique physical characteristics. This preoperative planning process is critically important in achieving the best surgical result because it helps you and your surgeon to know exactly which implant size, shape, filler and profile fits both your goals and body type.
Local anaesthesia and complementary sedation, or general anaesthesia.
From half and hour to 120 minutes.
You will have to rest at the clinic during 48 hours.
You will feel very groggy for the first two days and weak for about 1 week.
Breasts are high on the chest for the first three weeks then settle into a very normal position contour.
Rest is important to the healing process, so do it as much as possible following your procedure.
For at least 3-5 days, you should try to keep arm extension to a minimal. The tissues will heal more quickly if you avoid stretching and separating muscle/tissue surrounding the breast implants.
You will be able to resume calm, quiet work within a few days of your surgery.
You may be required to wear a support bra to help your breasts form and maintain a pleasing, balanced shape.
Breast augmentation stretches the tissues, and can be painful. This is especially true when the implants are placed under the muscle and in young women who have never had children. The pain is greatest within the first 48 hours, but improves with each day and is somewhat relieved by pain medications.
REMOVAL OF THE STITCHES
The stitches will come out within a week to ten days.
BRUISES AND SWELLING
Swelling may continue several weeks.
Your scars will be pink for several weeks. After several months they will begin to fade.
