Cosmetic breast surgery: how does it work?

Cosmetic breast surgery: how does it work?

Women like to have a harmonious and firm breast. Cosmetic surgery today represents the most durable and reliable alternative to take the plunge and obtain a result that meets your expectations. Different techniques exist depending on your needs and your surgeon, Dr Didier Van Den Broeck accompanies you every step of the way.

Cosmetic breast surgery, a decision not to be taken lightly

Like any cosmetic surgery, breast surgery requires thought and time. Do not hesitate to turn to Dr. Didier Van Den Broeck, who will answer any of your questions, even before you have made a firm and final decision to turn to this solution.

Cosmetic surgery increasingly safer

Over time, techniques have evolved sufficiently to provide a perfectly secure environment for patients. It's important to remember that breast augmentation is still surgery, so it comes with some risks.

Dr Didier Van Den Broeck offers regular follow-up to gauge the wear of prostheses, if there are any, to check for leaks, etc.

Zoom on the breast prosthesis

A true object of curiosity for the public, the breast prosthesis is a small jewel of medical technology.

Round, pear, choose the shape that suits you and meets your desires. Dr Didier Van Den Broeck always strives to obtain a natural result, harmonious with the rest of the body of each patient.

Volume is also a matter of taste. Of course, your cosmetic surgeon in Mauritius will advise you so that the result is beautiful and does not in any way cause discomfort, such as back pain.

The filling material varies. There are prostheses filled with silicone gel, the most common, but also hydrogel or physiological serum. Here too, Dr Didier Van Den Broeck will closely support you in choosing the material for your breast prosthesis.

The texture of the outer shell of the breast prosthesis is also important. Did you know that you can choose between a textured and a smooth texture?

As for the way in which Dr. Didier Van Den Broeck introduces a breast prosthesis, it can go through the fold of the armpit, on the areola, or even in the inframammary fold. Ask your plastic surgery for advice on the presence of a scar and choose the option that is best for you.

Regarding the position of the prosthesis, it can be inserted behind the mammary gland, behind the pectoral muscle or behind the aponeurosis of the pectoral muscle. This is undoubtedly one of the few decisions made by the surgeon, who will choose the most appropriate to obtain a very good result.

How is cosmetic breast surgery performed?

A cosmetic breast surgery operation usually lasts an hour and a half and is performed under general anesthesia. It takes one night of hospitalization.

Dr Didier Van Den Broeck offers you personalized support so that your cosmetic breast surgery becomes a real well-being step in your life.
