Breast Augmentation – Don’t Assume Bigger Is Always Better

Breast Augmentation Dubai | 26 August 2018

One of the first things people want to know about getting breast augmentation is what size of implants they should get. In order to answer this question, you need to know a few things about deciding on your ideal breast implant size.

Implants aren’t measured in cup size. You can’t just go in to the plastic surgeon’s office and ask for a set of C cups. First, implants are measured in cubic centimeters or CCs and the number of CCs does not necessarily translate into a certain cup size. Further, since bra sizing is not consistent across brands, this wouldn’t be a reliable way to measure implant sizes anyway.

Proportion is more important than size. When you’re deciding how big you want to go, think about how you want your body to look. Consider the whole picture, rather than just focusing on some ideal size. Going too big can cause breast implant rippling and other undesirable results.

Consider your body type. Your anatomy will help to determine your ideal breast implant size. Your height, weight, shoulder width, chest shape, and other physical factors will affect the way implants look on your body. Thus, an implant size that looks great on someone else might not work for you.

Think about your lifestyle. You should also take your lifestyle into account when deciding on breast implant size. Your job, the kinds of activities you do and even your fashion sense can play a role in determining what’s best for you. If you engage in a lot of highly athletic activities, very large implants might not be the best choice.

Breast Augmentation – What should I expect in terms of treatment, procedures and outcomes?

Breast Augmentation Dubai | 20 August 2018

Breast enlargement surgery takes between one and one-and-a-half hours, and is done under general anaesthetic. The operation itself involves accessing and creating the pocket into which the implant will be placed, using one of the insertion routes mentioned above: breast- crease, armpit or nipple.

Once the pocket has been created, the implant is inserted and the incision wounds are stitched. You may be able to go home the same day. Post-operative pain in these procedures is easily controlled. Patients will be mobile from day one and should be back to full exercise within six weeks. Patients are recommended to take around two weeks off work immediately after the operation in order to ensure they recuperate fully.

The nature of the scars will depend on the technique that has been used. Scars tend to be quite red in the first six weeks, changing to purple over next three months and then fading to white. Most patients will form good quality scars over time.

Breast Augmentation – Getting Back on Track

Most breast augmentation patients want to know how their surgery is going to impact their daily routine and most importantly, their active lifestyle. My patients usually return to basic daily routines within the first week following surgery – things like showering, driving your car and preparing your own meals.

Although every patient is different, the physical activity schedule shown below is typical for breast augmentation patients My expert technique, incision method and leading edge surgical technology ultimately lead to less bruising, less swelling, and quicker recovery times.





My patients are impressed that they can expect to return to all aspects of their day-to-day lives a month following surgery.

Breast Augmentation – Pre-Surgery Checklist

Breast Augmentation Dubai | 14 August 2018

During your pre-surgery planning visit, you’ll be given a checklist to ensure you are ready for surgery. Here are 10 highlights from the list:

1) Discontinue all medications that thin the blood 2 weeks prior to surgery and for 5 days after surgery (i.e., aspirin, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, etc.).

2) Make sure your “at home” support team/caregiver will provide transportation to and from the surgical facility and be available to stay with you for at least 24 hours.

3) Fill prescriptions in advance and bring them with you to your surgery.

4) Do not eat or drink any food or water after midnight on the night before surgery. Do not drink alcohol 2 weeks before or after your surgery. Drink plenty of water the day before your surgery.

5) Take a shower the night before surgery and the day of surgery using DialTM soap.

6) Confirm the choices you and I have made for your procedure, including implant size.

7) Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes that you do not have to pull over your head on theday of your surgery. We suggest slippers, a zip-up hoodie and pants with an elastic waistband.

8) Do not wear make-up, deodorant, perfume, hair products, lotions or jewelry to your surgery.

9) Decide where you are going to stay to avoid extended traveling.

10) Have prune juice on-hand to help prevent constipation following surgery, which can sometimes be caused by pain medication.

Breast Augmentation – Choosing your “at home” support

Breast Augmentation Dubai | 7 August 2018

Choosing your “at home” support team is a critical decision. They will be elevated to super-human status immediately following your surgery, and should be worthy of the role. Your “at home” care team must:

1) Be present at your final pre-surgery planning appointment tofully understand post-surgery instructions and to become familiar with all the items in your take-home supply kit.

2) Drop you off and pick you up on the day of surgery.

3) Stay with you throughout your first night at home.

4) Ensure you take all medications as scheduled and follow all instructions in your take home materials.

5) Not smoke in your recovery area.

6) Help you bathe, change clothing, prepare meals, and do allthe heavy lifting in the days following surgery.

7) Be prepared to stay up all night following surgery, if necessary.

Breast Augmentation – Preparing Emotionally

Breast Augmentation Dubai | 5 August 2018

I strive to ensure my patients are emotionally well-prepared for breast augmentation surgery. Being able to discuss any issue or question with me is a big part of identifying emotional concerns. I find most women who have breast augmentation surgery are realistic about the surgery and their anticipated results. Patients with a realistic outlook tend to have a better overall experience. Patients seeking breast enhancement for their own personal reasons – and not to fulfill someone else’s desires – also leads to better emotional satisfaction. Every patient will experience some degree of emotional stress and depression after surgery.  Typically, this can reach its peak on Day 5 following surgery – due to very predictable physiological reasons (fluid retention, swelling,etc.). When patients are counseled properly to recognize the onset of this experience, they know it’s just a normal part of the healing process.

As a patient who’s done their due diligence, you’ve arrived at your consultation because you were able to evaluate the “tangibles” of a surgeon’s reputation; things like education, experience, certifications and patient results. Now, during the consultation, it’s time to evaluate the “intangibles;” things like demeanor, personality, patience, passion, compassion and heart.

Ask yourself:

Do I feel a sense of trust?

Do I feel cared for?
Do I feel important?
Do I feel comfortable?

If you answer “no” to any of the above, chances are the surgeon is falling short on the equally important “intangibles” that can make or break your surgical experience. Pay close attention to your inner voice when evaluating matters of the heart.
