Cosmetic surgeries, like breast augmentation Dubai or breast implants, have made it easier to
help women enhance their aesthetic appeal. Popular as ‘boob job’, this surgery involves fat
transfer treatment to let the patient get a desired shape or size for their breasts. The
breast sizes of women may naturally differ due to various reasons such as heredity, or
serious deformities and asymmetry due to cancer surgeries. Breast augmentation is also an
effective method to regain breasts volume that is often reduced during weight loss or post
pregnancy, which gives it the name "Mammaplasty".

Ideal Candidate for the Surgery
Breast augmentation is a deeply personal procedure, and it's important that you're doing it
for yourself and not for someone else, even if that person has offered to pay for it.
Patient satisfaction is high, specifically when they want the procedure themselves.
You may be a candidate for breast augmentation surgery in Dubai if:
- You are physically healthy and you aren't pregnant or breastfeeding
- You have realistic expectations
- Your breasts are fully developed
- You are bothered by the feeling that your breasts are too small
- You are dissatisfied with your breasts losing shape and volume after pregnancy, weight
loss or with aging
- You are unhappy with the upper part of your breast appearing "empty"
- Your breasts are asymmetrical
- One or both breasts failed to develop normally or have an elongated shape
If you're considering surgery, spend some time reviewing breast augmentation photos and
learning about what to expect during recovery. Preparation ahead of time helps patients have
reasonable expectations and a smoother recovery.
Breast Implant Types
Saline Breast Implants
These implants are filled with sterile salt water. Should the implant shell leak, a saline
implant will collapse and the saline will be absorbed and naturally expelled by the body.
Saline breast implants provide a uniform shape, firmness and feel, and are FDA-approved in
Dubai for augmentation in women age 18 or older.
Structured Breast Implants
Structured implants are filled with sterile salt water and contain an inner structure which
aims to make the implant feel more natural.
Silicone breast implants are filled with silicone gel. The gel feels a bit more like natural
breast tissue. If the implant leaks, the gel may remain within the implant shell, or may
escape into the breast implant pocket. A leaking implant filled with silicone gel will not
If you choose silicone implants for breast augmentation, you may need to visit your plastic
surgeon in Dubai regularly to make sure the implants are functioning properly. An ultrasound
or MRI screening can assess the condition of breast implants.
Silicone breast implants are FDA-approved for augmentation in women age 22 or older in
Gummy Bear Breast Implants
Form-stable implants are sometimes referred to as gummy bear breast implants because they
maintain their shape even when the implant shell is broken.
The consistency of the silicone gel inside the implant is thicker than traditional silicone
gel implants. These implants are also firmer than traditional implants.
Shaped gummy bear breast implants have more projection at the bottom and are tapered towards
the top. If a shaped implant rotates, it may lead to an unusual appearance of the breast
that requires a separate procedure to correct.
Placement of gummy bear implants requires a slightly longer incision in the skin.
Round Breast Implants
Round breast implants tend to make breasts appear fuller than form-stable
implants. Higher profile augmentation options in Dubai can achieve even more projection.
Because round implants are the same shape all over, there is less concern about them
rotating out of place.
Smooth Breast Implants
Smooth breast implants are the softest feeling. They can move with the breast implant
pocket, which may give more natural movement.
Smooth implants may have some palpable or visible rippling under the skin.
Textured Breast Implants
Textured breast implants develop scar tissue to stick to the implant, making them
less likely to move around inside of the breast and become repositioned.
Texturing offers some advantage in diminishing the risk of a tight scar capsule.
Implant manufacturers occasionally introduce new styles and types of breast implants, so
there may be additional options available.
Whether you choose saline or silicone implants, it is important for you to monitor your
breast implants and follow-up with your plastic surgeon for appropriate checkups.
Breast Implant Replacement
Breast implants are not considered to be lifetime devices, and they may need to be replaced.
You can see your plastic surgeon for an annual examination to evaluate your breast health
and implant or augmentation integrity in Dubai.
Over time, your breasts will change due to aging, weight fluctuations, hormonal factors and
gravity. As the appearance of their breast’s changes with time, some patients have a breast
lift or an implant exchange to restore a more youthful contour.
Our Breast Augmentation Procedure
A breast augmentation procedure Dubai includes the following steps:
Step 1 – Anesthesia
Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices
include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best
choice for you.
Step 2 – The Incision
Incisions are made in inconspicuous areas to minimize visible scarring. You and your plastic
surgeon will discuss which incision options are appropriate for your desired outcome.
Incision options include: along the areolar edge (peri-areolar incision), the fold under the
breast (inframammary fold) and in the armpit (axillary incision). A belly-button approach is
associated with a higher complication rate.
Incisions vary based on the type of breast implant, degree of enlargement desired, your
particular anatomy and patient-surgeon preference.
Step 3 – Inserting And Placing The Breast Implant
After the incision is made, a breast implant is inserted into a pocket either:
A. Under the pectoral muscle (a submuscular placement)
B. Directly behind the breast tissue, over the pectoral muscle (a submammary/ subglandular
The method for inserting and positioning breast implants depends on the type of implant,
degree of enlargement desired, your body type and your surgeon's recommendations.
Step 4 – Closing The Incisions
Incisions are closed with layered sutures in the breast tissue and with sutures, skin
adhesive or surgical tape to close the skin.
Over time the incision lines will fade. The quality of scar depends on many things,
including your genetics, exposure of your body to nicotine and infection.

Breast Augmentation Recovery
Immediately after surgery, during your breast augmentation recovery in Dubai, you will be
taken into a recovery area for close monitoring.
Your breasts will be wrapped in gauze dressings and an elastic bandage or support bra will
minimize swelling and support the breasts as they heal.
You may be permitted to go home in Dubai when you are stable for discharge, after an hour or
Before leaving, you will be given specific postoperative instructions and a follow-up
appointment with your plastic surgeon. You may also receive medications or a prescription,
but many plastic surgeons prescribe postoperative medications in advance. Your prescribed
medications may include pain pills and an antibiotic to prevent infection. Wear your support
garment (a bra or elastic band, called a bandeau) around the clock as instructed by your
plastic surgeon. Some surgeons may ask patients cleanse the incision sites and apply
ointment, while others will ask their patients to keep tape or a bandage on. Because
instructions vary, it's important to follow all your plastic surgeon's instructions
Because it is possible to bleed into the pockets around the breast implants for the first
several days, take it easy until you have permission to increase your activity level. Acute
pain typically subsides after one to five days, but you may experience soreness and swelling
for a few weeks.
Resume exercise and normal activity according to your plastic surgeon's directions.
Breast Augmentation Results
While a breast augmentation yields larger breasts right away, the final results may take a few weeks as the swelling subsides, and the skin stretches. Some patients may need to wear a bandeau to help shape their breasts, especially if they have underlying asymmetry or very small breasts to start with. Incision lines may take several months, even a couple of years, to fade.
To achieve optimal breast augmentation results, follow your surgeon's post-operative
instructions and return for follow-up visits in Dubai.
Risks And Safety
The decision to have plastic surgery is extremely personal and you will have to weigh the
potential benefits in achieving your goals with the risks and potential complications of
breast augmentation. Only you can make that decision for yourself.
You will be asked to sign consent forms in Dubai to ensure that you fully understand the
procedure and any risks and potential complications.
