Before the operation you will undergo a preoperative check, including:
- blood tests
- chest X-ray
- electrocardiogram (ECG)
- any other specialized tests, depending on the case
Dr Karmiris will answer all the questions related to the necessary pre-op check and he will inform you in detail.
The surgical procedure:
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure which is performed under general anaesthesia. The incisions are placed in such a way to be easily hidden and nearly indistinguishable post-op. Most often, scars are placed:
- at the inframammary fold line (IMF)
- in the armpit
- at the nipple border
The selection of the incision is related to the type of the implant which will be used, its size, woman’s body frame as well as surgeon’s preference. For instance, in women with small nipples the incision cannot be made to the specific area.
After creating the pocket of the breast, the implant is placed in a specific anatomic position, depending again on the body frame and particular characteristics of each woman.
Selecting and applying the appropriate method for you is something that you will discuss in detail with the doctor in order to achieve an optimal and natural result.
