A complete guide to Breast Surgery-Things you should Know -Best Breast Surgery Clinic in Dubai


Have you ever considered getting work done on your breasts? A majority of women may have undoubtedly contemplated altering the form or even the size of their breasts at least once in their life. Breast augmentation might just be the solution to feeling more confident and comfortable in your own skin. Before you decide to get breast surgery in Dubai, however, there are a few things you should think about.

Are you in need of breast surgery?

The general assumption surrounding breast surgery is that its sole purpose is to enlarge breasts for those who feel that they have a smaller bust size. While this may hold some truth, there is no such thing as a “traditional” breast enhancement patient. Women get the treatment for a variety of reasons, including volume decrease due to weight loss, pregnancy, or lactation.

For women who have had a mastectomy, a breast surgery procedure can assist in the restoration or addition of symmetry to the chest. Some candidates opt for the treatment for aesthetic purposes, such as optimizing their physique and accentuating their curved hips for an hourglass shape. This is especially beneficial for patients who want to boost their self-esteem. If you fall under any of these categories of women, breast surgery may be a path for you to consider.

Surgical Expectations:

Breast surgery is typically done at a surgical center or in a hospital setting. It hardly involves hospitalization, so patients may usually return home the same day if no problems develop post-op. Here are some factors to anticipate during a breast surgery procedure.

The Procedure:

Silicone breast implants are usually filled with silicone gel prior to the surgery after which the implant will be placed and positioned behind the nipple through an incision made under the arm by the surgeon.  The incision will then be sealed with sutures once the implant is set. Finally, the operated area will be bound together with an adhesive as well as bandages to help the recovery process.


For breast surgery, surgeons typically employ general anesthetic to keep the patient unconscious. Under certain cases, however, the patient may remain awake and the surgeon simply administers local anesthesia to numb the breast region. Plastic surgeons may provide you with several sedation alternatives during your consultation to help you decide which might be the most suitable option for you.

Recovery Time:

The recovery period may vary depending on the outcome of the surgery. The general length of recovery may take one week to resume mild activities. It may take two to three weeks to go back to a strenuous routine. As for physical discomfort, the surgeon may supply patients with analgesics to assist with the swelling and tenderness that follow a breast procedure. The swelling is likely to disappear within three to four weeks though it may take even longer to see the true results of the procedure

Risks and Side Effects:

There are a few side effects that can arise after breast surgery, some of which may include but are not limited to:

  • The formation of scar tissue around the newly placed implant causes the breast around the implant to harden and therefore creates an asymmetrical distribution throughout the chest region.
  • Breast tissue atrophy thins out the skin surrounding and covering the breast region.
  • Rupturing of the implant results in the breast deflating and losing its intended shape.
  •  Breast-Implant associated Lymphoma which is a cancer of the immune system that can be due to the scar tissue that surrounds the breast implant. However, the chances of developing this kind of cancer due to breast procedures are extremely low.

In most cases, signs of these symptoms lead to correction procedures where the implant is either replaced, modified, ­or even removed completely.

How much does it cost?

The average breast surgery cost in Dubai starts at roughly AED 20,000 yet can vary depending on certain protocols and standard operating procedures (SOPs) put forward by hospitals and clinics. These factors include medical examinations, duration of the procedure, pharmaceutical prescriptions as well as the surgeon’s charges.

Bear in mind that cosmetic surgeries are usually disregarded by medical institutions to fall under health insurance. It might also be useful to also think about the expenses following the surgery such as the recuperation period. As a result, patients may need to schedule time off from work on the day of the surgery and throughout the duration of their recovery.
