Breast Augmentation

 

 

 

Boost your attractiveness

Breast augmentation assisted by SEL is a procedure for enhancing the size, form, and feel of a woman’s breasts or correcting the post mastectomy defects. Feel attractive and beautiful, with guaranteed natural, outstanding results by our unique technique, SEL.

Perfect Results by SEL

The SEL approach effects global breast augmentation by using the Stromal Enriched Lipograft approach alone, where stem cell enriched fat is used to build a more enhanced natural looking breast, and the composite breast augmentation, where a silicone-filled implant combined with the Stromal Enriched Lipograft approach are used together when there is lack of sufficient fat. These approaches correct also post–mastectomy defects in a breast reconstruction procedure - congenital defects and congenital abnormalities of the chest wall - and aesthetically enhance the natural size, look, and feel of the bust.

In the Breast augmentation assisted by SEL, the breasts are contoured by layering the stromal enriched lipograft into different levels within the breast, until achieving the desired breast form. Your own fat enriched with your own stem cells, obtained from liposuction, is used to build your breast. There is no need any more to use excessive amounts of fat to overfill the breast, because in the SEL procedure, we are transplanting fat drop by drop, guaranteeing sufficient blood supply for the stem cell enriched fat to survive, avoiding fat necrosis. The three-dimensional contour of the breast is enhanced by building a harmonic breast and avoiding the artificial stigma of the “ball looking” breast, typically present in patients that have undergone traditional breast augmentation by silicone implant.

In the Composite breast augmentation by SEL, the use of breast silicone implant combined with Stromal Enriched Lipograft is used. The patient is typically thin, which means that she does not have enough fat donor area to be used for performing only Breast augmentation assisted by SEL. Initially an incision is made along the areolar periphery (border), the medial-half (inferior half) of the areola’s circumference. This approach provides an optimal approach when adjustments to the inframmary fold position are required, or when a mastopexy (breast lift) is included to the primary mammoplasty procedure. Aesthetically, because the scars are at the areola’s border, they usually are less visible. The polyurethane breast implant is emplaced in the subfascial plane, beneath the fascia of the pectoralis major muscle. The subfascial breast-implant pocket technique provides greater implant coverage and better sustains its position. Although this approach closely approximates the plane of normal breast tissue, and affords the most aesthetic results; it is quite often observed ripples and marking of the underlying implant borders especially in thin patients. In order to avoid the “implant show” stigma, your own fat enriched with your own stem cells, obtained from liposuction, is used to contour your breast by layering the stromal enriched lipograft into different levels above and on the side of the silicone implant. There is no need any more to use large silicone implants, because with Composite breast augmentation by SEL procedure, we are using smaller size implants as a base and by transplanting fat drop by drop, guarantying sufficient blood supply for the stem cell enriched fat to survive, we achieve medium to large size naturally looking breasts. The three-dimensional contour of the breast is enhanced by building a harmonic breast and avoiding the artificial stigma of the “ball looking” breast typically present in patients that have undergone traditional breast augmentation by silicone implant.

Contraindications

Contraindications to breast augmentation surgery include severe concomitant medical problems. While not absolute contraindications, the risk of postoperative complications is increased in cigarette smokers and patients with hypertension and diabetes. Patients are typically asked to abstain from taking aspirin or other blood thinners for at least one week prior to surgery.

Pain-free recovery

Patients can expect some discomfort after breast augmentation surgery, but this can be managed with medication. Some bruising, swelling, and numb sensation will likely affect the breasts and nipples within the first 1-2 weeks following the procedure. Stitches, when used, are typically removed within the first 10 days after surgery. Patients can usually get back to their normal routines within a few days to a week. A special bra is advised to be worn for 2 weeks after the surgery. A mammogram and/or ultrasound examination of the breasts should be performed before breast augmentation and repeated after the surgery.
