Breast surgery, also known as mammoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to improve the size, shape, or symmetry of the breasts. Breast surgery can be performed for aesthetic reasons, such as to enhance the appearance of the breasts, or for reconstructive reasons, such as after a mastectomy. In this article, we will discuss the different types of breast surgery, their benefits and risks, and what to expect during and after the procedure.

Types of Breast Surgery

There are several types of breast surgery, each designed to address different concerns.

  1. Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, also known as breast enlargement, is a surgical procedure that involves placing implants in the breast tissue to increase its size and volume. The implants can be made of silicone or saline and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The procedure takes about one to two hours to complete and is usually performed under general anesthesia.

  1. Breast Lift

Breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that involves lifting and reshaping sagging breasts. The procedure can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. The surgery takes about one to three hours to complete and is usually performed under general anesthesia.

  1. Breast Reduction

Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to reduce the size of the breasts. The procedure can relieve symptoms such as back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain caused by the weight of the breasts. The surgery takes about two to four hours to complete and is usually performed under general anesthesia.

  1. Breast Reconstruction

Breast reconstruction is a surgical procedure that involves rebuilding the breast tissue after a mastectomy. The procedure can be done immediately after the mastectomy or delayed until the patient has healed. The reconstruction can be done using implants or tissue from other parts of the body, such as the abdomen or buttocks.

Benefits of Breast Surgery

Breast surgery can have many benefits, including:

  1. Improved appearance and self-confidence

It can enhance the size, shape, and symmetry of the breasts, which can improve a person’s self-confidence and self-esteem.

  1. Relief of physical symptoms

Breast reduction surgery can alleviate back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain caused by the weight of the breasts.

  1. Restoration of breast tissue

Breast reconstruction surgery can restore the appearance of the breast tissue after a mastectomy.

Risks of Breast Surgery

Like any surgical procedure, it also comes with risks. Some of the risks include:

  1. Infection

Infection can occur after any surgical procedure, including breast surgery. Patients are given antibiotics to help prevent infection.

  1. Bleeding

Bleeding can occur during or after the procedure. If it is severe, it may require a blood transfusion.

  1. Scarring

Scarring is a common side effect of breast surgery. The amount of scarring will depend on the type of procedure and the patient’s healing ability.

  1. Implant rupture or leakage

Implant rupture or leakage can occur with breast implants. Patients are advised to have regular check-ups to ensure the implants are functioning properly.

What to Expect During and After the Surgery

Before the procedure, the surgeon will discuss the patient’s expectations and medical history. The surgeon will also discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure and answer any questions the patient may have.

During the procedure, the patient is placed under general anesthesia. The surgeon makes incisions in the breast tissue and inserts the implants, removes excess tissue, or reshapes the breast tissue.

After the procedure, the patient will need to wear a surgical bra to support the breasts and minimize swelling. Pain medication may be prescribed to manage any discomfort

I am an Italian woman and I would like to share my amazing experience with Dr. Faisal. When I decided to have my breast augmentation I visited several doctors, and I must say that every time I was more and more confused because I always received different advice and I felt a little lost. However, I decided to continue searching and found Dr. Faisal's profile on google, read some of his reviews and contacted him for a consultation. For the first time I really felt listened to, where I wasn't a "30 min visit" to sell the operation, but it was me as a person. Dr. Faisal asked me many questions to make me feel at ease and understand what my goals were (there was no time, he was just listening to me). I had finally left the studio happy, and sure he was the right surgeon. I want to clarify that I am a super sporty girl (I do running, CrossFit, kickboxing, tennis hiking), and also during the appointment, for me the most important aspect was to obtain a natural effect and be able to continue to do my sports activities as before. So I took a couple of weeks where every time I needed clarification he asked me to stop by the studio to explain me everything in detail! After my thousand dramas I decided the date of the operation :) it was a Friday. The day after I went out for a walk (Dr. please don't read, that I promised you I would be rested). On Monday I was already back to work and on Wednesday I could already drive. As for sport, I followed everything the Dr. advised me and after about 3 weeks I was back to running a bit. After about 5 weeks I was back to doing some weights. Now after 3 months I'm back to doing all my sports. I was already super happy with the result after the operation, now is absolutely incredible. I hope my experience can help other people because in addition to professionalism, he is a doctor who truly listens and cares about the person's happiness and I can't recommend him enough.

I highly recommend Dr Faisal to anyone thinking of undergoing surgery. I had a few consultations with other Drs but instantly i had a really good feeling when discussing everything with Dr Faisal. He really took the time to listen and understand exactly what I wanted to achieve. He reassured all the way through the process and made me feel so at ease. I had done extensive research (15 years) before I decided to do the surgery of Breast Augmentation. Dubai can be a minefield trying to find the right surgeon but he came highly recommended from many people and I now know why. I’m so happy with my results.

I had the best experience with Dr.Faisal for my 360 lypo surgery. Starting from my very first consultation in which he was very welcoming and open to listening to what I was looking to achieve. He really took my case with all care and professionalism, and I couldn’t be happier with what we achieved. Beyond his professional capabilities, his after care and support post operation has been second to none. I highly recommend Dr.Faisal to anyone who is looking to do any cosmetic work- minor or major in Dubai, there is no need to travel abroad looking for better doctors or prices ..etc. Dr.Faisal’s procedure and care have been the utmost best in class.

I decided to undergo lower eyelid surgery with Dr. Faisal Salim after many years of having a complex and I can truly say that it was one of the best choice I've made. Knowing Dr. Faisal for some years I had plenty of faith that he would do a great job. His care to detail, precision, and overall perfectionist that he is are what made me put my trust in him to perform my surgery and it shows as I'm highly happy with the result!

I am 27 yrs old and I had a desire of getting larger and proportionate breasts since my younger age. When I researched surgeons and was looking through many, many galleries of results, I wasn’t impressed by almost any of the doctor's work. After a long search, I came across the website of Dr. Faisal Salim, read his reviews, and looked at his results. I was so happy and just knew i had to do a consultation with him! I spoke with his clinic first on the phone and she gave me so much information even before booking a consultation with a doctor. From the first tele conversation, I was so impressed, and comfortable and felt that they cared about me as a patient. I went to my consultation where he explained every part of the procedure and answered all my questions. As we have a family history of breast cancer, Dr Faisal referred me to do an ultrasound mammogram, along with a health screening and tests to check i was a proper candidate for surgery. When I was cleared I had my surgery in October 2021, and have had many checkups with Dr. Faisal since he is very involved and wanting to make sure i have the best results. He and his team are better than I could have imagined. I have had a lot of friends, and even strangers ask me to know my doctor's name because they are wondering about my result. I recommend him to every female out there wanting the Best Results!!!

I had been thinking about getting a tummy tuck for years but I was so afraid of doing it. I had been searching for various surgeons because I knew it is an extensive surgery. But when I met Dr. Faisal Salim, I just knew he was the one I was searching for. After my first consultation with him, I got a confidence of doing tummy tuck surgery. It has been 6 months since my procedure and the result is amazing. He and his staff were welcoming, friendly, attentive and answered to all my questions in a positive way. I had a wonderful experience at his clinic, and his staffs were more caring. Thank you for your entire support and caring you had given me during my days in your clinic
