Breast Reduction
Breast Augmentation

BREAST AUGMENTATION DUBAI. Breast implants have been used for enhancement since the late 1970s. However, the implants that were used were shown to have adverse effects and major complications such as leaking and rupture tendency for the implants. Today, breast implants have been tested to last longer and are better and more advanced in terms of safety when compared to previously used implants from decades before.

THE SURGERY

The breast augmentation surgery is carried out under sedation as an out-patient surgery. This means that patients are not aware of their surroundings during the surgery and are also pain-free. Moreover, with sedation, patients recover faster compared with general anaesthesia and can also go home the same day. The surgery will usually take around half an hour to a couple of hours. After the surgery, patients are closely monitored before they are deemed safe to go home. 

AFTER THE SURGERY

A dressing is placed around to support the new breasts, which is then removed after three or four days. It is also important to wear a non-wired cotton bra for one month. During the first few days after the surgery, the breasts will look pointy and swollen. This is a normal occurrence and will resolve after a few weeks. Most of the time, the new breasts will also look a bit high. This is also expected and the will eventually settle down to their normal position after a few weeks. 

The scars which are located underneath the breast folds will be a little bit bumpy during the first few weeks and will eventually flatten after a few months.

Here in Dubai, Breast Augmentation is available at London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery located in Dubai Healthcare City.

Restore your tummy with a Tummy Tuck | Dr Maurizio Viel | Dubai | London | LCAS

Tummy Tuck

TUMMY TUCK DUBAI

Bulging tummy. Loose tummy. These all happens as a result of pregnancy or significant weight loss. Furthermore, wearing a bikini can sometimes be a daunting issue and can affect one’s self-esteem.

A tummy tuck is a type of operation that removes these loose, bulging tummy through surgical removal of excess fat and skin. With a tummy tuck operation, it is important to note that a long surgical scar is expected and the recovery time is longer compared to some aesthetic operations like breast augmentation.

The tummy tuck surgery can be done in our Dubai Healthcare City Day Surgery Clinic under intravenous sedation, a type of anaesthesia that involves a cocktail of sedative medications and pain killers given through a vein. Sedation, when compared to general anaesthesia, involves fast recovery and can be done as a day case surgery. With tummy tuck under sedation, it does not necessarily require an overnight stay at the clinic.  

The entire surgery will typically last from 3.5 to 4 hours. A compression garment will be worn immediately after the operation and may also involve the attachment of a couple of drains. These drains will help with the swelling by draining excess fluids. Usually, the drains are kept for a day or two until the drained fluids are less likely to cause any complications like seroma (the accumulation of fluid within the surrounding tissues.

During the first couple of weeks, it is crucial to be careful when moving or doing chores. Some individuals are moving up and about after the first week. Although this may seem so, it is still important to take everything at minimal until the first month.

The first couple of weeks, you may already feel tightness on the tummy as a result of the stitches made on the muscles. This helps achieve a flatter tummy and involves suturing the muscles together. 

A full tummy tuck surgery involves transposition of the belly button. Moreover, a scar is expected on the same place as the previously positioned navel; while a mini tummy tuck only involves a horizontal scar along the bikini line.

A tummy tuck has been proven as an efficient operation in achieving a flatter tummy however, certain issues such as long recovery, permanent scars, must be considered.

Breast Lift Dubai | Dr Maurizio and Dr Roberto Viel | Best Cosmetic Surgeon

BREAST LIFT DUBAI. Having saggy breasts can be an unpleasant experience for women. This may be a result from breastfeeding and multiple pregnancies where the breasts are stretched and lose its elasticity. The nipples and areola may sometimes be oddly positioned and may be pointing downward.

Before you decide to do a breast lift surgery, a few important things need to be considered. Firstly, permanent scars are expected. The scars may appear bumpy at first and will flatten in time, usually in six months and sometimes a year. Another important issue to consider is also breastfeeding. With breast lift surgery, breastfeeding may be impaired as the breast tissues are surgically repositioned. It is recommended to do a breast lift surgery when you are not planning to have more children. 

Immediately after the surgery, the breasts will be swollen and bruised. These will minimise after a couple of weeks to a month. Sensations during this first month may also be absent and will typically return gradually. Although very rare, slight loss of nipple sensation can happen. 

After the breast lift surgery, a dressing and an additional bandage will be wrapped around the breasts to support the newly positioned breasts. You may already feel minimal pain and discomfort after the first day but can be managed with an over-the-counter pain medication. Like any operation, it is usually the first couple of weeks that is a challenge. recommended that you take it easy for this first couple of weeks.

BREAST REDUCTION DUBAI | BREAST SURGERY DUBAI | LCAS

Breast Reduction

BREAST REDUCTION DUBAI. Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reduce the size and shape of overly large breasts. Abnormally large breasts can sometimes pose a problem to the individual. Physical discomforts such as neck and back pain and even skin irritations on the breast folds can occur. On top of that, finding the right size of bra can present a challenge. 

During breast reduction surgery, a significant part of the breast tissues and skin are removed, and the remaining skin is reduced and distributed to the required size and shape. Breast reduction surgery also gives a “lifting effect “as the breasts, nipple and areola are lifted to a new position proportional to the body structure of the individual.

When deciding to undergo breast reduction surgery, it is critical to understand that longer downtime is expected. Typically, patients can go back to non-strenuous activities, like walking, after a couple of weeks. Sleeping on the side is recommended for the first two weeks and on the front, at one month after the procedure. However, it will take a month before one can resume regular activities. 

The presence of permanent scars should also be considered. It usually takes months to a year before the scars are almost unnoticeable to the naked eye. Breastfeeding might also be impaired since a part of the breast tissues are removed. It is best to postpone breast reduction surgery if you have certain future plans like childbirth.

Here in Dubai, Breast Reduction is available at London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery located in Dubai Healthcare City.

Breast augmentation

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons statistical data, breast augmentation is the top cosmetic surgery done worldwide. The number of patients undergoing breast augmentation with implants have seen a substantial increase in the past three years and will likely continue to rise.

Breast augmentation with implants is a surgical procedure for enhancing the size, shape and contour of the breasts. Women opt to undergo breast augmentation for various reasons such as to enlarge the breasts, to correct asymmetry, or to achieve breasts that are proportionate to their body.

Currently, breast implants have evolved in terms of safety, structure, and components. They have fewer complications compared to the implants previously used. There are a variety of breast implants out in the market but the most popular one is the “gummy bear” implants. Just like the gummy bear candies, these implants have the ability to return to its original shape. This advancement in the component of the breast implants is in response to the complication of previous implants that have a higher risk of rupture and possible leaking into the body.

In terms of incision, there are three possible access. The inframammary, which is done under the breasts fold; the second is around the areola; and lastly is through the armpit. 

The breast implants can either be placed on top of the muscle and below the breast tissues, known as subglandular; the other is submuscular, which is under the muscles.

Mommy Makeover | A Trend after Pregnancy | Dubai | London | LCAS

Having children changes a woman’s body and most of the time things do not go back to the way they were. Women are left with loose skin on the tummy, saggy breasts and excess fat on some parts of the body despite following a strict exercise and diet plan. 

breast augmentation

MOMMY MAKEOVER: WHAT IS IT?

Mommy makeover is a term used for a combination of cosmetic surgeries to improve the structure and appearance of the body after pregnancy. Mommy makeover may include breast lift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck and liposuction. This may also include non-invasive cosmetic procedures. The goal of mommy makeover is to restore the body to pre-pregnancy state and address unwanted changes to the body brought about by childbirth and breastfeeding. 

Each individual has their own personal needs and goals and the specific surgery needed will depend on these aspects. The following are a few goals women want to achieve with mommy make-over: improve the shape and volume of the breasts, correct breast asymmetry, remove excess skin on the tummy, repair the weakening of the abdominal walls due to stretching and separation from pregnancy (diastasis recti), and reduce the appearance of unwanted fat pockets that are resistance to diet and exercise.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO DO THE MAKE OVER?

The best time to do a mommy makeover is a personal decision but few factors need to be considered. You need to wait a few months after you have completely finished with breastfeeding before considering a breast augmentation. Typically, it is best to arrange a mommy makeover when you are finished having children especially for tummy tuck since a possible pregnancy can hinder the tummy tuck ineffective. If you plan to have more children, a non-surgical cosmetic body contouring might be an option. 

Mommy makeover is not a one-time procedure, it requires multiple surgeries carried out at different times. It is a custom-tailored procedure that addresses the patient’s individual needs.

Eyelid Surgery | Blepharoplasty | Dubai | London | LCAS

lower blepharoplasty at lcas
Eyelid Surgery with Drs Maurizio and Roberto Viel

Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is the surgical removal of skin and sometimes fat on the upper and lower eyelids to address droopy eyelids and eye bags. Eyelid surgery has received highly satisfactory results from both surgeons and doctors.

The surgery is carried out as an outpatient procedure under local anaesthesia with sedation. You will be able to return home on the same day of the surgery.

Preparations before the surgery are necessary as with all cosmetic surgery. Firstly, a consultation with the surgeon is required to determine the specific goal and need of the patient. After the consultation, a pre-anaesthesia consultation will be conducted. Blood tests are also necessary to rule out any medical problem that can impede the flow of the surgery and the recovery period. Once everything is in order, the patient can now proceed in scheduling for the surgery.

On the day of the operation, fasting is a must from midnight. The length of the surgery typically lasts around one to one and a half hour.

After the surgery, tiny dressings will be placed on the surgical wound to aid in closure. Minimal bruises and swelling are expected for the first couple of weeks. Also, intermittent ice pack application is recommended for the first day to reduce swelling and bleeding. Oozing of blood is not uncommon for the first day. However, it is best to return immediately for a follow-up with the surgeon should any prolonged bleeding persist.

The stitches are removed after four or five days and a small dressing is applied. This dressing can then be removed after a day.

Tummy Tuck Dubai | London | LCAS.AE

Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is an effective treatment for addressing excess fat, loose skin and tighten the abdomen. Because of certain factors such as fluctuations in weight or pregnancy, the abdomen is significantly stretched and the skin sometimes is not able to retain to its original elasticity. These results to the untoward signs of redundant and protruding abdominal feature.

There are two types of abdominoplasty. One is the mini abdominoplasty and the other is the full abdominoplasty. 

THE DIFFERENCE

MINI ABDOMINOPLASTY

  • Mini abdominoplasty is typically for those with minimal excess fat and mild loose skin on the lower abdomen. 
  • The incision is made on the bikini line below the navel and the navel is kept at its original position. 
  • Tightening of the lower abdominal muscle will depend on the degree of weakness. 
  • The procedure will usually last for one a half to two hours.

FULL ABDOMINOPLASTY

  • Full abdominoplasty is for individuals who have mild to moderate excess fat, moderate loose skin, and weakness of the abdominal muscles on both upper and lower abdomen.
  • The excess skin from below the navel are removed and the remaining  skin above the navel line are pulled down and stitched on the bikini line. In addition, a new navel is formed. 
  • Tightening of the muscles are also performed through permanent stitches along the central part of the abdomen. This will eventually give a flatter and tighter tummy.
  • Since the full abdominoplasty addresses both upper and lower part of the abdomen, the procedure is twice as long as the mini abdominoplasty.
  • Two drains are attached on the lower abdomen to help remove excess fluid and prevent fluid accumulation (seroma).

COMPLICATIONS AND RISKS

Minor complications are swelling, bruises and fluid accumulation (seroma). Swelling and bruises usually disappear after a few weeks. Seroma can be treated through aspiration of the fluid through a needle attached to as syringe. There is also the risk of scar and keloid formation.

Although very rare, major complications can still occur. The most critical is the death of the tissue. This can be prevented by careful planning and taking a detailed medical history of the patient. Smoking and intake of certain medications are few factors that can affect and slow down the progress. 

Here in Dubai, tummy tuck is available at London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery Gulf located in Dubai Healthcare City.

3 Popular Procedures for Men by Dr. Roberto Viel | Dubai | LCAS

HD Vaser Liposuction for Men
Dubai has seen a growing industry in aesthetic procedures not only for women but also for men.

Dr Roberto Viel of the London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery Gulf discusses the 3 most popular procedures men seek.

  1. Penis Enlargement and Lengthening (Penoplasty)

The phallus has been a symbol of masculinity since time immemorial. This may be the reason that men seek to increase the size and shape of the penis in order to somehow prove masculinity and of course to enhance self-esteem.

Penoplasty is an aesthetic procedure that involves lengthening and enlargement of the penis. The procedure usually takes around 2.5 to 3 hours and is done under local anaesthesia with sedation. Sedation is a type of deep sleep anaesthesia wherein patients are not aware of the surgery but will still be able to respond with stimuli and the breathing is not compromised. Unlike general anaesthesia wherein total patient response is diminished and spontaneous breathing is assisted through intubation or other assistive breathing devices.

In penoplasty, penis lengthening is achieved through an incision on the pubis to release a ligament that acts as a mobile point for the penis during an erection. This release of the ligament increases the size of the penis to 1-3 cm during flaccid. However, it is important for the patient to understand that the length will be the same during the flaccid and erected state.

Meanwhile, penis enlargement is done through the injection of one’s own fat. Initially, the surgeon will collect fat from an area where you have abundant of them, like abdomen or flanks, by liposuction. The collected fat tissues are then filtered and removed of excess fluids. For additional viability of these fat tissues, stem cells or platelet-rich plasma may be added. Finally, the surgeon will inject the collected fat tissues into the penis using a small cannulae.

The usually expected side complications will be mild to moderate pain and discomfort, bruising and swelling of the penis and the donor area. The complete recovery from penoplasty will be around a month. Medicine to decrease erection will be given and should be taken according to the surgeon’s instructions.

  • VASER Liposuction

The abdomen, chest and flanks are the most common areas that men seek for VASER liposuction. 

The advantage of VASER liposuction is that it targets fat cells and leaves other surrounding tissues like blood vessels intact. This selective ability decreases the risk of an increased bleeding and bruising tendency.

VASER liposuction is also done under local anaesthesia with sedation. The procedure time will depend on the amount of area to be done. After the treatment, a compression garment will be worn for a month which can help minimise swelling and bruising. 

Initial improvement will be seen after a couple of weeks to a month when the swelling has lessened. However, the final result will be evident after 6 months.

  • Botulinum toxin Injection Treatment

Botulinum toxin Injections is an easy and effective way to improve wrinkles and fine lines. This is by far the most popular for men and women alike as a facial rejuvenation therapy. 

The treatment will usually take around 15 to 20 minutes to finish and no downtime. There might be some pinpoint redness and sometimes very minimal bruising on the injection site but will eventually fade in 24 hours.

Massaging or rubbing the area is prohibited for the first 4 hours after the treatment, and any facial treatment should be avoided for 24 hours. 

Botulinum Toxin Injections is a temporary treatment and may be repeated as necessary, typically after 3 – 4 months or depending on the need.

BREAST UPLIFT: Lift those Breasts Up! | Dubai | LCAS

BREAST UPLIFT DUBAI

Age, gravity, fluctuations in weight and decrease in elasticity can contribute to the lowering of the breasts over time. The amount of drooping will depend on the volume and elasticity of the breast tissues. 

Breast uplift surgery is an effective way to reshape the breasts making them look lifted, firmer and more youthful in appearance. This type of surgery is for patients who are experiencing moderate to severe ptosis (droopy) of the breasts and who are not planning to have more children. Although there are no risks associated with pregnancy or breastfeeding after breast uplift surgery, there is the possibility of the skin stretching again and will render the surgery ineffective.

THE SURGERY, ANAESTHESIA METHOD, AND RECOVERY

The surgery is usually done under local anaesthesia with moderate sedation, but can also be under general anaesthesia. Moderate sedation is a drug-induced depression of consciousness wherein patients are able to respond to verbal commands either alone or accompanied by movement stimulation. Spontaneous breathing is observed in sedation unlike in general anaesthesia where the breathing ability is compromised thereby requiring airway assistance devices like intubation. The surgery will last approximately 3 to 3.5 hours and recovery in the clinic will take around 2 to 4 hours and can be longer depending on the amount of time for the patient to recover.

AFTER BREAST UPLIFT

After the surgery, you will have an adhesive bandage dressing around the breasts which will act as a support as well as maintain the shape of the breasts. This adhesive bandage dressing will be removed in 4 days. A cotton, non-wired bra is worn for a period of 1 month. The stitches will be removed in a couple of weeks. The breasts will look pointy and high for the first few weeks but will eventually settle down and will look more natural.

IMPORTANT CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Refrain from stretching the arms above shoulder length so as not to stretch the incisions. Sleeping on the back is required for a month. Strenuous exercise should be avoided until one month.

RISKS

As with all surgeries, breast uplift surgery carries uncertain risks and complications. 

Scar formation is possible if you have history of keloid formation. Complications like infection, bleeding, and asymmetry of the breasts may happen. 

Breast uplift surgery is a good operation which can reduce and improve the appearance of droopy breasts.

Breast augmentation with implants is an effective way to increase the size of one’s breasts. It is considered as one of the most sought aesthetic procedures all over the world. 

How will I know which breast implant size is suitable?

The breast implant size will be based on the outcome you want to achieve. Recently, more women are deciding to have natural-looking breasts. 

During the consultation, a physical examination will be conducted as well as a breast simulation using a one-of-a-kind technology which can help you visualise the different sizes of implants.

Where are the implants placed?

The implants are either placed between the breast tissues and the muscles (subglandular) or below the muscles (submuscular). 

Where will the incisions be?

The incisions will be placed on the natural crease of the skin, which is the fold under the breasts. The incisions will be around 4cm long. The incisions will flatten in a few months and will be less conspicuous.

How is the surgery done?

Breast augmentation is done under local anaesthesia with sedation. During sedation, you will be asleep and will not be able to remember the operation. The whole procedure will take around 1.5 to 2 hours. 

What happens after the surgery?

You will be expected to remain 2-4 hours after the surgery. This may be longer depending on how fast you recover.

There will be a dressing as well as an adhesive bandage around the breasts which will be left in place for 4-5 days. 

Once this adhesive tape is removed, a regular non-wired cotton bra is recommended and will be worn for a month. 

When can I go back to my daily activities?

As with all surgeries, resting for the first couple of days is advised. It is for your own safety to have someone assist you for the first 2 days. Driving is also not allowed during these 2 days because of the sedative medications. 

You can start exercise on the lower body 2 weeks after the surgery and upper body for 4 weeks. 

It is important that in order not to stretch the incision scars, you are advised not to raise your arms above shoulder level for a month.
