Breast Augmentation in Cyprus
Breast augmentation, commonly known as boob job is a cosmetic surgery and one of the most performed surgical breast treatments in Cyprus. Patients get breast augmentation surgery in Cyprus for their own reasons and most of the time they combine it with a breast lift surgery.
This breast surgery aims at increasing the size of the breasts and changing their shape with the use of artificial implants, fat transfer or a combination of the two.
Surgery time: 40 – 60 minutes
Results last around 15 to 20 years or more
Anesthetic: General anesthesia
Downtime: 3 – 4 weeks
Boob job is usually performed with a breast lift as well, but this is not always the case. The implants do lift the breasts a bit anyway, but if a patient wishes for breast augmentation plus breast lift, they must discuss it with our amazing doctors. A lift and breast augmentation surgery is called Augmentation Mastopexy.
Breast implants come in different sizes and our surgeons can help patients decide which size they want based on their body shape and desires.
Right after a boob job in Cyprus there will be swelling and tightness which can last from some weeks to 3 months.
Breast Augmentation Incision Types
The inframammary fold (IMF)
During a boob job in Cyprus, the incision is made under the breast, at the point where the breast meets the chest. With this incision the doctor has clear visibility, thus can precisely place the implant. Moreover, with this type of incision, the scars can easily be hidden under the breast.
With the periareolar incision, the scar can also be hidden or camouflaged because the incision is made at the outer edge of the areola, which is anyway a different colour than the breast skin.
Breast augmentation in Cyprus can be achieved through two different types of incisions. Of course, our doctors explain the surgery procedure and the types of incisions to each patient, discuss the risks and benefits of each one with them and they can decide how they want to proceed.
Yes, your doctor will provide you with a special surgical bra which you must wear for as long as your doctor tells you to. This timeframe depends on each case and patient, but it is usually from 3 to 6 weeks.
Of course, this is called an augmentation mastopexy and it is very common. Patients who wish to have breast augmentation usually request a lift as well, since the enlargement of the breasts does not guarantee a lifted result. The combination of the two is perfect for a beautiful and youthful final result.
After breast augmentation in Cyprus, the breasts are sore and tight and there is some pain. However, this pain is manageable with the pain medication our doctors always prescribe to our patients. The most pain is usually the first 3 days post-surgery.
