The breast is a cornerstone to the figure of a woman. Some women may decide to change their breast size and shape by having a breast augmentation in Limassol, Cyprus.
Dr. Economou, most often performs breast augmentations in Limassol, Cyprus with the use of silicone implantable devices. In some cases patients opt to augment their breast volume with the use of their own fat.
The female breast changes over the years in shape and size. In addition further changes occur influenced by hormonal cycles of pregnancy and menstruation. The use of silicone implants can enhance the form of the breast giving it a fuller shape, increased projection and definition.
Regardless of the reason for seeking breast augmentation, Dr. Economou can help to guide you to make the best decission regarding the details of the type of procedure that suits your needs.
After many years of inovation and technological advancement, breast implants have evolved immensly. As a result, this gives surgeons an array of options. Traditionaly, projecting salt, sugar or other particles on the implant shell produces textured surfaces. Lately, several studies have shown that aggressive textures, which are typically obtained with such materials, have secondary effects. (Higher surface area textured implants are shown to significantly increase risk of BIA-ALCL in Australia and New Zealand.)
In conclusion, for these reasons Dr. Economou works with implants that have a fine texture and a stable, smooth, natural like core for his breast augmentation in Limassol.
The width of your chest, the quality of your skin and also the amount of relaxation of the breast will mainly determine the size of the implant to be used.
Typically, round implants have been used to give fullness of the breast’s upper-pole, whereas teardrop shaped implants were designed to best mimic the natural breast shape, with more fullness in the lower pole. Dr. Economou prefers to use implants that adapt in shape taking advantage of the recent advancements in implant technology.
Implants can be placed above the chest muscles, or beneath them. Placing implants under the muscle helps to prevent some of the potential complications of breast augmentation. These include, limiting the incidence of capsule formation, providing extra cover and protection for the implant and preventing “waterfall deformities”.
Limitations of this technique are mainly concerned with the partially weakening of the chest wall (pectoral) muscles. Dr. Economou will often use the dual plane technique, which is a mix of the two
Covering the top of the implant giving cover and a natural feel. In selected cases Dr. Economou will use the covering of the muscle to cover the implant leaving the muscle intact.
