BEFORE THE CONSULTATION

If you've reached this point, it means you're already envisioning your dream. In this phase, I ask you to make an effort to clearly define what you don't like about your breasts and what you hope to achieve from the breast augmentation procedure. You may gather photos of women with breasts that you find pleasing.

THE CONSULTATION

Now, after listening to you, I will try to thoroughly understand your desires and expectations from the breast augmentation procedure. The examination of your breasts aims to help me understand if what you desire is achievable. Only when there is full agreement between what you want and what can be achieved will we proceed with this journey together.

BEFORE THE SURGERY

It's time to undergo tests to prepare for the breast augmentation procedure: blood tests, an electrocardiogram, and finally, an ultrasound or mammogram.

THE SURGERY

As I favor natural results, I tend to prefer placing the implant beneath the large pectoral muscle (dual-plane technique), rarely beneath the mammary gland. You will end up with a small scar (2.5 to 3.5 cm depending on the size of the implant) in the inframammary fold. Sometimes along the lower edge of the areola. I don't use drains, and you will be discharged the same day. Immediate mobility is crucial for a rapid recovery.

HYBRID BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY

This is a different way to perform breast augmentation surgery. In fact, both an implant and fat are used simultaneously.

You may ask, why not just use the implant? The aim is to further increase the naturalness of the result by increasing the thickness of the tissue covering the implants, as well as achieving a lighter breast for a given volume (fat is lighter than silicone). However, if you are too thin, this technique may not be feasible. It is indeed a slightly more complex procedure that requires the presence of available adipose tissue deposits.

AFTER THE SURGERY

I will want to see you regularly starting from the first week until the result is stabilized. You can return to work starting from 1 week. Sports activities in 6 weeks. Your breasts will certainly be larger. But also heavier: so I recommend regularly wearing a supportive bra.

IMPLANTS

Aiming for the best possible result is a constant focus for me. Therefore, I have chosen to work with Motiva implants, characterized by high-quality materials and advanced technological research. They have a very low rate of capsular contracture and a reduced risk of rupture due to increased shell resistance compared to other implants. The Ergonomix version offers a very soft gel that better follows the body's movements

Natural Result Breast Augmentation

Natural Result Breast Augmentation

By now, it will be clear to you. This is my primary goal when performing breast augmentation surgery. It depends on the choice of implant diameter based on the breast base, its tissue coverage (preferably submuscular or hybrid), and the type of implant (preferably the ergonomix version).
