Breas-t Augmentation in Dubai, Abu Dhabi

Breas-t augmentation medically termed as augmentation mammoplasty is an aesthetic procedure that helps to enlarge the breas-ts, improve cleavage, and create symmetry, thereby proving a pleasing breas-t profile. It is a convenient, outpatient procedure performed by Dr. Parag Telang, an expert plastic surgeon in Dubai. After a breas-t augmentation, one can achieve improved self-esteem and therefore better job and social opportunities, a youthful chest profile, and one can wear any clothing of their choice and flaunt their bodies. 


The following techniques are used for breas-t augmentation

Fat transfer mammoplasty- In this minimally-invasive procedure, fat derived from another body part by liposuction technique is used to restore the lost breas-t volume. Usually, the autologous fat transfer takes place from the abdomen, hips, and thighs to the breas-ts with the help of injections containing the prepared and refined fat cells. It is a less conventional method and is known for its efficacy and safety. The surgery is performed in cases when the requirement or changes required are minimal.   

Breas-t implantation- In this invasive procedure, the breas-t implants are inserted under the large pectoralis muscle which lies beneath the breas-t. 


Types of breas-t implants

Various types of implants can be inserted into the pocket created in the breas-t tissue by surgery. This includes

Saline breas-t implant- It is a sterile, saltwater-filled implant that offers a uniform breas-t shape and firmness. FDA has approved its usage in females aged 18 years and above. This is less commonly used because of its potential collapse if there is a leakage in the shell of the implant. The leaked saline gets absorbed and expelled naturally by the body.

Structured saline breas-t implant- The only added difference between this type of implant and saline breas-t implant is the presence of an internal structure for better holding of the implant. The shell is made of silicone material. 

Silicone breas-t implant- It is the most common type of implant which is composed of cohesive silicone gel. This is soft and elastic and provides a natural breas-t appearance. If there is any leakage, the implant would not collapse as the silicone gel either remain inside the shell of the implant or gets accumulated in the breas-t implant pocket. 

Smooth breas-t implant- It provides a natural look as the implant does not get affixed in one place rather it moves along with the breas-ts.

Textured breas-t implant- This type of implant gets stuck, repositioned, and is less mobile due to the development of scar tissue which minimizes the risk of tight scar capsules.

Round breas-t implant- It possesses an all-over round shape, hence best used for patients who wish to get a fuller breas-t appearance.

Gummy bear breas-t implant- It is a form-stable implant containing a thicker cohesive silicone gel as it appears in the same shape even after there is a breakage of the shell of the implant.

Why is breas-t augmentation surgery performed?

Breas-t augmentation is needed when women possess

  • Undersized breas-ts which becomes an embarrassment and bothersome issue.
  • Asymmetrical breas-ts.
  • Lack of proportion and imbalanced appearance of curvy hip and breas-t contour.
  • Non-fuller breas-ts after pregnancy or nursing of the child.
  • Poor cleavage.
  • Lack of projection of breas-ts which makes them have a poor self-image and lack of self-confidence.
  • Uneven breas-ts, i.e. one or both breas-ts have developed abnormally, or have an elongated shape. 
  • This surgery is also a goal for women who wish to reconstruct their breas-ts after an injury or a mastectomy surgery that removes the entire breas-t in breas-t cancer patients.

Who is best suited for breas-t augmentation surgery?

  • Physically fit individuals who have realistic expectations with the surgery.
  • Women with fully-developed breas-ts which are small-sized, abnormally shaped, have imbalanced physical proportions, or asymmetrical.
  • Females who are not pregnant or breas-tfeeding.
  • Individuals who suffer from significant weight loss sometimes due to bariatric surgeries.


How to prepare for breas-t augmentation?

The preparation of breas-t augmentation surgery involves following some pre-operative instructions given by the surgeon. These include-

  • Physical examination of the patients to evaluate their health condition, review of their medical history, the conduct of blood tests, and scheduling of a baseline mammogram.
  • Smoking cessation at least a month before the surgery. This is necessary as it would interfere with the healing process because it restricts blood flow in the body, lowers immunity, and increase the risk of having an infection.
  • Keeping the body well-hydrated by increasing the water intake.
  • Making arrangements at home for the recovery period. This also includes looking for a caretaker who would bring the patient home and stay with him/her at least for the first night.
  • Avoiding an intake of blood thinners and anti-inflammatory drugs.
  • Wearing loose garments on the day of surgery and coming for surgery without jewelry or other precious items.


How is the Breas-t Augmentation Surgery performed

The steps involved in breas-t augmentation surgery using implants are as follows:

Providing anesthesia: Mostly, the patient is administered with general anesthesia or IV sedation, but sometimes local sedation may be given to numb only the breas-ts. The type of anesthesia to be provided is determined based on the procedure being performed and the health condition of the patient.

Making incision: Dr. Parag Telang, breas-t augmentation surgeon in Abu Dhabi prefers to make incisions in inconspicuous areas of the chest to achieve minimally visible scarring. The location of the incision depends upon the breas-t anatomy, type of implant used, preference made by the surgeon, and the desired results. The options include an inframammary incision (under breas-t creases), a periareolar incision (at the outer edge of the areola), a transumbilical incision (above belly button), and a transaxillary incision (at a point where chest area and armpit meets).

Placement of breas-t implant: Through the incision, the surgeon separates the breas-t tissue from connective tissue and chest muscles. This forms a pocket either in the front or behind the breas-t tissue i.e. under the pectoral muscles. The implant is positioned centrally behind the areolae region.

Closing of incisions: Using dissolvable sutures, the incisions are closed and the skin is joined with a skin adhesive or surgical tape. 


What to expect after the breas-t augmentation surgery?

For a few days, the patient may experience pain, swelling, soreness of breas-ts, and also sensitivity to physical contact and jarring movements. All these gradually subside within a week. The operated breas-ts are wrapped with surgical gauze and an elastic bandage or supportive surgical bra is asked to be worn by the patient as additional support and also to reduce swelling. Some patients are advised to wear a bandeau for giving a proper shape to their new symmetrical or larger breas-ts. 


Drainage tubes may be inserted at incision sites to take out extra body fluids or blood. It is removed in the follow-up appointment with the surgeon. The final results may be noticed after a few weeks. The scars left by incisions usually fade in a couple of months or sometimes years.


Breas-t augmentation surgery does not guarantee a life-term result because over time with increasing age, gravity, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and menopause the enhanced appearance of breas-ts may get affected. For maintaining a healthy breas-t shape and to know the impact of breas-t implant, Dr. Parag Telang, cosmetic surgeon in Dubai recommends regular breas-t examination after the surgery.


Possible risks:

There are minimal chances of having any risks if the surgery is performed by an expert. But sometimes, the surgery may be associated with some of these risks-

  • Anesthesia side effects
  • Infection. 
  • Sensitive breas-ts and changes in the areolae region.
  • Rupture and leakage of implants.
  • Bleeding or bruising.
  • Hematoma.
  • Development of scar tissue around the implant that may lead to a distorted shape of breas-t implant.
  • Incorrect placement of breas-t implant.
  • Fluid build-up around the implant.
  • Persistent breas-t pain. 
  • Wrinkled breas-t skin over the implant.


Aftercare required after surgery

The patient must take certain precautions after the surgery to ensure a quick recovery and the best healing. Dr. Parag Telang, breas-t surgeon in Abu Dhabi recommends the patient to follow these post-surgery instructions:

  • Complete the prescribed course of antibiotics, painkillers, or other medications as given by the doctor.
  • Wear the compression or support garments as recommended by the surgeon.
  • Avoid or limit strenuous physical activities for a minimum of two weeks.
  • Return to work or daily activities only when the doctor’s permission.
  • Avoid wetting of surgical dressing or bandages and keep the incisions site clean and dry. At least for the first 48 hours, do not take a shower or wet the surgical site. An ointment may be applied for quick healing of the wounded area. But before applying any cream, lotion, or deodorant close to the incision, the patient must take permission from the doctor.
  • Do not go for swimming, hot baths, or saunas for at least 6 weeks after the surgery.
  • After a month of breas-t implant surgery, schedule an appointment with the surgeon to assess the condition of the implant using MRI or ultrasound.
  • If the patient has got a silicone-based implant in their chest, then it is recommended to visit the surgeon after every 6 months to ensure the correct working of the implant.
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle, if the patient is a smoker or alcohol abuser, then both must be quit, as it may delay healing.
