Breast Surgery F.A.Q

Here are some common question we are asked about these procedures.

How big can my breast be?

There are many customers who come to our clinic after seeing the before & after photos or obtaining information on the Internet. They usually say ‘It requires ~cc for achieving ~cup during surgery’, ‘It requires ~cc to avoid future regrets.’. But, for breast augmentation, it’s important to choose a breast implant type and size that’s ideal for your body type and taste with accurate breast examination and detailed consultation.

A same-size implant can look different like voluminous, moderate, or sometimes small depending on the patient’s body type. The reason why is that every patient has a different body type. We recommend that you choose a breast implant size that’s right for your body type and taste with detailed consultation.

How does it feel?

For a good feeling after breast surgery, it’s the most important to choose an appropriate implant and get a safe surgery. Also, it’s important that they can move with the breast implant pocket without feeling of irritation.

There are general opinions that smooth breast implants feel soft and textured breast implants feel firm and recently, micro-textured breast implants that combine both advantages are used for surgery to improve the feeling and reduce side-effects.  

What kind of implants do you use?

We use authentic implants from Allergan and Mentor approved by FDA, Korea Food & Drug Administration. Recently, lots of micro-textured implants have been introduced, so we use them from Motiva, Bellagel, Eurosilicon. 

Isn’t there any problem with breastfeeding?

Most women with breast implants can still breastfeed normally. A recent study found similar levels of silicon in breast milk from mothers with implants compared with mothers without implants.

When can I return to daily activities?

It is okay to shower immediately after surgery except for the suture area. But, for the suture area, you can shower day after suture removal.

You may be able to go home on the day of your operation, do your simple daily routines day after the surgery and do all of your regular daily activities without inconvenience after 3 days.

Stitches are removed 7 days after surgery but you should avoid carrying heavy objects or lift your arms over your head for 10 days.

What will my scars look like?

For a transaxillary incision, scars is the least noticeable because the incision is made in the natural folds of the armpit, but It’s not suitable for those who experience frequent armpit exposure like a model, an entertainer. 

Inframammary fold incision is the most noticeable incision but recently it leaves scars to the level of transaxillary incision with scar treatment. It is recently recommended because of easy surgery and rapid recovery. 

For Areolar incision, an incision is made around the areola, reducing the visibility of scarring by hiding the incision within the border of the areola. It can create natural breast shape and  get the maximum effect especially for sagging breasts.
