Breast Augmentation: Everything You Wanted to Know, but Were Afraid to Ask (Part 1)

We have asked our on-board certified Plastic Surgeons at Bizrahmed
9 exciting questions about Breast Augmentation, Trends in Plastic Surgery, and Possible Risks and the Recovery period after the operation.

If you are not comfortable with the shape or size of the breast, then, quite possibly, you have repeatedly thought about Plastic Surgery. And you are not alone – according to statistics, more than half of the girls are unhappy with the state of their breasts and would like to change something in it. Another thing is that Breast Augmentation  (or Mammoplasty) is more than other operations shrouded in myths and legends, as a result of which few decide on it (most often those whose friends or relatives survived such a surgical intervention and were satisfied).


1.How to understand that the operation is necessary?
BMC Plastic Surgeon:  The patient makes the decision about the operation herself, the doctor in no way persuades the person. For our part, we can only explain what in this case we can perform and by what means (Breast Augmentation today can be done in different surgical ways). Initially, the girl herself says that she wants to change: to correct, increase, remove asymmetry or ptosis of the mammary glands, and after that we recommend the way to solve the problem.

Moreover, sometimes we refuse operations. For example, a recent case: a patient with already endoprosthesis breasts decided to correct a ptosis that formed after the operation eight years ago and reduce her breast a little. I explained to her that this would lead to additional scarring and sent her a good thought.

Breast Enlargement, if a woman has not given birth, also includes breast hypertrophy. And if we are talking about a woman who has already given birth and breastfeeding – post-lactation hypertrophy (often the breast after lactation can be in a state of ptosis, then endoprosthesis can be performed). In some cases, we at Bizrahmed resort to the Mastopexy procedure.


2. How to choose a professional Plastic Surgeon?
BMC Plastic Surgeon:  That’s a very difficult question. Today in UAE there are a very large number of clinics and surgeons, so it can sometimes be difficult for a patient to make the right choice. First, you should carefully read the surgeon’s resume: you need to see what kind of education he has, where he trained (in which departments), what is his surgical experience (it must be at least 10 years of experience).

Plus, it is important to pay attention to the reputation of the clinic itself – the success of the operation depends not only on the professionalism of the surgeon, but also on the equipment on which the clinic works (and especially on good aesthetic management). Checking the clinic is easy enough – ratings on Google and reviews on specialized forums such as will come to your aid. Click here  to see what people say about Bizrahmed in Dubai.


3. What Breast Enlargement myth do most girls still believe in?
BMC Plastic Surgeon: The most common questions for consultation are, of course, questions about oncology. Often, they ask whether Breast Augmentation (Mammoplasty) is associated with breast cancer and whether surgery can provoke this kind of oncology. However, you should know that arthroplasty does not cause such problems – this is confirmed by very serious and many years of research. The bottom line is that the implants are placed in the pocked made behind the breast, so there is no contact with the mammary gland.

4. If at one fine moment a girl realizes that she wants to return to her previous breast size, how complicated will the operation be?
 BMC Plastic Surgeon:  In my practice at Bizrahmed , there were no such cases, but if a surgical intervention has already been performed, then it is very difficult to return to the initial state. And the older the operation, the more difficult it is to return to size, since this is a stretching of tissues, scars. Even if the duration of the operation is one year, it is still a change in iron. It is better to think well before the operation than to regret later and try to return something.
