Breast Augmentation, what should you know?

The Breast Augmentation has become increasingly popular over the past few years. Although this is a straightforward surgical procedure, some in-depth discussion between surgeon and patient is always required. This is why a consultation with Dr Abel Mounir will include a very full and frank appraisal of individual's suitability, as well as review the risks and benefits of the Breast surgery in general.


Usually, Patient would start by asking which implant is the best for the breast enlargement. The task of the surgeon would be to try to explain to the patient the difference between differences between the different type of implants and especially between the Silicone breast implants and Saline implants. Basically, patients do wish to know which type of implant is more suitable for them. Also patients sometimes are more specific and would ask which type of silicone implant is the best. They wish to know what implant is more suitable for them and understand the differences between the Natrelle implants, (Allergan), the CUI implants (Allergan) and the Mentor implants.

In fact, most patients are aware that Saline implants are easy to insert in the breast because when these implants are placed in the breast, they are empty and only after placement the implants are filled with saline. Patients could be attracted by the fact that these implants are always inserted through a very small incision. However, As a surgeon I try to make them aware that although the placement of the saline implants in the breast is simple and involves lesser risks to the body, these implants are reported to have a higher complication rate such as wrinkling or rippling. Poor cosmetic out-come after augmentation with saline implant are usually easily noticeable to the naked eye and can be felt by touching the breasts.

Patients interested to have Silicone made implants do know that these implants necessitate a longer incision (about 2 to 3 cm more) as the implants are already filled with cohesive silicone-gel and then placed in the body. The cosmetic out come produced with the silicone-based implant is usually superior to the Saline implants. Effectively, post operatively, the breasts do feel and look more natural. Therefore, the Breast enhancement the so –called "boob-job" with silicone implant has become increasingly popular among women. Nevertheless, it is very important to make your surgeon aware whether you wish to have a natural look or a more rounded (fake) look.
