PREPARING FOR BREAST AUGMENTATION
Breast Augmentation Dubai | 1 December 2021
Women choose primary breast augmentation surgery to increase the size and proportion of their breast(s). In addition, women choose revision-augmentation surgery (replacement of an existing breast implant) to correct or improve the result of a primary augmentation surgery. According to literature reports, most women who have undergone breast implant surgery have reported high levels of satisfaction with their body image and the shape, feel and size of their implants.67 In Sientra’s Clinical Study, most primary and revision-augmentation patients were pleased with the results of their implant surgery. The results showed that most women who underwent primary or revision-augmentation with the Study Implants felt their breast implants made them feel more feminine and more attractive. In addition, the majority of these women indicated that their breast implants made them feel better about themselves. For more information on the benefits of breast augmentation with Sientra’s Implants based on the results of the Clinical Study, refer to Section 8.3 of this brochure.
Preparing For Breast Augmentation Dubai With Silicone Gel Breast Implants
Deciding to have breast augmentation with implants is an important personal decision that has both benefits and risks. You should decide whether it is the right choice for you after discussing all the options with your plastic surgeon and any other doctors who are treating you. This section will give you the information you need to make an informed choice and help you make a number of decisions that have to be made before your surgery.
Should I Have Breast Augmentation Dubai?
Breast augmentation with Silicone Gel Breast Implants
is one option that may be available to you if you wish to enhance the appearance of your breasts. A breast revision-augmentation surgery may be appropriate if you have had
a breast augmentation with implants but need to complete, improve upon, or correct a part of that first surgery (called the primary augmentation). Whether breast augmentation is right for you depends on many things; some of them are personal. You should take into account your medical condition, general health, lifestyle, how you feel emotionally, and your breast size and shape before surgery, as well as your hopes for breast size and shape after surgery. All of these things will affect the outcome of your surgery. Discuss your goals for breast augmentation with your doctors. You may also wish to consult your family and friends and breast implant support groups, to help you learn about the options and decide. Many women who choose implants as part of their augmentation say their augmented breast(s) help them feel more self-confident, feel better about their bodies, and/or give them a greater feeling of well-being. Other women are not satisfied with their implants because of complications, like capsular contracture, rupture, or pain.
Breast Augmentation Dubai With Implants – Understanding The Procedure The surgical procedure for breast augmentation consists of choices you and your surgical team (surgeon(s), nurses, anesthetist, etc.) will make as you plan your surgery. These choices include:
• The surgical setting (where the surgery will be performed, for example, in a hospital, surgery center, or doctor’s office),
• The type of anesthesia used,
• The location of the incisions made to insert the Implants,
• How the Implants will be placed in your breasts
(subglandular or submuscular), and
• Whether your existing skin and/or breast tissue can

Each of these is discussed in the sections that follow. The type of procedure that is available to you depends on your medical situation, breast shape and size, general health, lifestyle, and goals for the augmentation. Breast augmentation with Silicone Gel Breast Implants can usually be completed in a single surgery. SURGICAL SETTING Breast augmentation surgery can be performed in a hospital, private surgery center, clinic, or in the surgeon’s office. Be sure you are comfortable with the location of the surgery before it happens. If you are considering having surgery in a private surgery center or office, you may want to see the area where the surgery will be performed. ANESTHESIA Breast implant surgery may be performed under general or local anesthesia. All anesthetics carry some risk. Discuss the risks and benefits of the anesthetic your surgeon and anesthetist recommend for you before the surgery. INCISION SITES Figure 2 shows the three incision sites
(location of cut through which the breast implant is inserted in your body) usually used for breast augmentation surgery:
• Inframammary – the most common incision, made under your breast at the crease where the breast meets the body,
• Periareolar – an incision is made around the nipple, and
• Transaxillary – the incision is made in the armpit, which gives the surgeon easier access to the chest muscle.

When you and your doctor decide what you want your breasts to look like after augmentation, your doctor can help you choose the right implant to get the effect you want. Your body type, height, and weight will be factors your surgeon considers to help you achieve the best result. IMPLANT SIZE, SHAPE AND SURFACE Your surgeon will examine your breast tissue and skin to figure out if you will have enough to cover the implant. It is possible that you
will not have enough skin and/or breast tissue to cover the implant you desire. In this case, you may be offered several choices. Breast implants that are too big for the amount of breast tissue or skin can cause problems: they can actually speed up the effects of gravity; your breasts may droop or sag earlier with implants that are too large. Implants that are too large can also cause implant extrusion, skin wrinkling, infection, and hematoma. You may be able to feel folds on the implant created by it being squeezed too tightly by the surrounding tissue and skin. If you do not have enough skin, and it is stretched too thin over the implant, you may be able to feel or see the edges of the implant under your skin surface after surgery. As shown in Figure 4, the Implants come with either a smooth shell or a textured shell; you should speak with your surgeon to find out whether he or she recommends smooth or textured implants for you.
