Breast augmentation

The surgery consists of inserting breast implants to change the volume and shape of the breasts. This aesthetic choice may follow a pregnancy or weight loss, or simply a desire for improved well-being and femininity.

The choice of the size and shape of the breast augmentation is made during the consultation, between the surgeon and her patient, according to her wishes ,anatomy, and the elasticity of the skin.
Breast augmentation surgery consists of making “space” in your chest to place the breast prosthesis/implants, in front of or behind the pectoral muscle or in a “dual plane”. There are then 3 possibilities of access to this “space”, the incision made by the surgeon through: axillary (armpits), submammary (fold under the breast) and areolar (through the areola).
The choice of technique will depend mainly on the volume of the implants, the anatomy or the elasticity of the skin. Due to the the location and size of the incision, the scar after the operation will be as discreet as possible. But results will also depend on how your skin reacts. It is on this factor that the UrgoTouch ® laser will act on during the operation.

To know
Scars are normally very discreet because they are not located in areas of tension and are hidden (under the armpits, under the breast curve, around the areola). However, a beautiful scar is not guaranteed: the final result will depend on the patient’s skin and can be improved thanks to the use of the UrgoTouch ® laser
