Breast augmentation is a surgical treatment for women and used to increase the size and shape of the breasts. The treatment involves the use of silicone breast implants that are inserted into the breasts to gain the desired appearance and size. There are many reasons why some women opt for breast enlargement. Some women want a boost in self-confidence, others want to fit into certain types of clothing, and others have cosmetic issues that cannot be remedied by other means.
Professional breast augmentation can increase the fullness and roundness of the breasts, improve the balance and symmetry, and still create a natural appearance. Although it is most common for women aged in their 20s and 30s to seek breast enlargement, women in their 40s and even 50s can benefit from this popular treatment. In the majority of cases, breast enhancement is a safe treatment that can generate excellent results within weeks of surgery.
Most patients who undergo breast augmentation experience great results and are extremely happy with the final outcome. In fact, initial results can be seen after surgery once the bandaging has been removed. The results become even more apparent after a number of weeks and months as the breasts heal. By talking with the plastic surgeon and having a thorough examination and consultation, it is possible to create the perfect appearance. At Elite Style, our plastic surgeon will be realistic and truthful about what is possible in each individual case.
Breast augmentation benefits women in different ways. Some patients simply want to increase the size of their breasts. Others want to create a more balanced appearance, or may wish to reduce sagging. Slightly older patients often want to create a more youthful appearance. Whatever the ultimate goal, the majority of women can benefit from breast enlargement or enhancement. And while the treatment requires surgery and incisions into the breasts, it is safe and usually requires around 1 hour to complete. Full recovery is possible within weeks.
When a patient makes an enquiry about breast enlargement at Elite Style Polyclinic, they will be invited to a free examination and consultation with a plastic surgeon. This enables the doctor to see the patient and advise on whether breast augmentation is appropriate. We always work on a case by case basis and provide a bespoke service to each and every patient. This ensures the best possible results. Part of the consultation will also assess the patient’s suitability for surgery and whether they have pre-existing medical conditions. It also gives the surgeon the opportunity to describe the treatment in full and allows the patient to ask questions prior to treatment.
During the treatment, a small, single incision is made beneath each breast. The plastic surgeon will make the incisions so that the scarring can be minimized. Cutting into the breast uncovers the inner tissues so that the silicone implant can be inserted and adjusted correctly. This part of the treatment is important and requires concentration to achieve the designed outcome. Having a detailed pre-treatment consultation allows the surgeon to generate the best results. After treatment, there will be some soreness and the patient will need to wear a supportive bra for a few weeks. Lightweight activities can be resumed within a week after surgery.
Breast augmentation is a surgical treatment and some low-level pain is to be expected. That said, the plastic surgeon, doctors, and nurses will minimize discomfort as much as possible. There will be no pain during the treatment, but there will be minor swelling and soreness for a few days after surgery. Walking is possible an hour or so after surgery. Patients can start lightweight activities and desk jobs within 1 to 3 days. Heavy activities, lifting, and pulling should not be attempted for at least 3 to 4 weeks. This gives the breasts time to heal correctly.
A noticeable difference in the size and/or shape of the breasts can be seen immediately after surgery. As the scarring heals over the weeks and months, the full impact of the surgery will become apparent. The breasts will begin to look more natural after 4 weeks as any redness and bruising subsides. The full extent of the results can be seen around 6 to 12 months after surgery. At this point, the appearance of scarring will have lessened extensively.
Breast augmentation, otherwise known as breast implants, or simply a “boob job”, is the enlargement of women’s breasts using silicone implants. Breast size is important to many women who may feel that their small breasts restrict fashion choices and cause dissatisfaction with their body image. The only real way to increase the fullness of the breasts, symmetry, and natural appearance is by professional breast augmentation.
At Elite Style Polyclinic in Dubai, we use Mentor breast implants. These are silicone implants that are made from a proprietary cohesive gel. The implants mimic the appearance of authentic breast tissue, ensuring a natural appearance. Mentor is a leading American brand of silicone implants and has a very high success rate internationally. Patients undergoing breast augmentation suffer minimal complications and often benefit from fuller, more voluminous and balanced breasts.
While the majority of patients are usually in their 20s or 30s, breast augmentation is also suitable for people in their 40s and beyond. Many women want to reduce the appearance of ageing and benefit from increased body self-confidence. Provided the patient is in general good health with no concerning or underlying health conditions that could impact the procedure, breast implants are typically safe.
Soon after the procedure, it is possible to walk and take part in very lightweight tasks and exercise. After the surgery, the patient will need to wear a support bra to reduce swelling and ensure adequate healing. Most patients can go back to work in around 7 days, but they should not undertake any strenuous work or sport activities. Full recovery can take up to 4 to 6 weeks. After this, all activities can be resumed. The incisions are made below the breast and will fade over 6 to 12 months.
After surgery, it is possible to see results immediately and the breasts will feel noticeably fuller and more rounded. A supportive sports-type bra will need to be worn for the first few weeks. This helps the healing process and ensures the best possible results. Patients will continue to see results over the course of 4 to 6 weeks. For women who need to breastfeed, this is possible within weeks after surgery.
Pregnancy is safe around 4 to 6 weeks after surgery. It is always recommended that clients follow the advice of their doctor and maintain a healthy weight. Stretching of the breasts and natural enlargement is common during pregnancy. Therefore, limiting weight gain as far as possible will assist with the natural healing process. Breastfeeding after giving birth is also perfectly safe after breast augmentation.
The size of the breast augmentation is ultimately at the discretion of the patient. But we usually recommend a 2 to 3 bra size increase. Patients should consider their height and build when choosing a breast cup size. Larger breasts may cause problems and can become uncomfortable for some people. This is why the plastic surgeon will provide guidance to enable the patient to come to a suitable decision.
Most patients will only need to stay in hospital for half a day. A person having breast enlargement surgery can arrive in the morning and leave later in the afternoon.
After 1 or 2 weeks, the stitches are ready to be removed. All of the stitches are dissolvable and should fall out within the required timeframe.
Once a patient has undergone breast enlargement, they will need to wear a medical bra. This has a similar appearance to a supportive sports bra. Patients need to wear this for 3 to 4 weeks to ensure correct support and maximum healing.
It is possible to shower 48 hours after the surgery. Patients should try and avoid wetting the breast area as much as possible during this time. It is recommended that patients avoid strong “power showers” to minimize pain and discomfort.
Most patients can return to lightweight work duties after one day’s rest. Desk-based jobs will place the least amount of strain on the breasts. For work that requires more movement or lifting, it is best to wait at least 2 to 3 weeks. Light practice and sports such as walking can begin after 2 to 3 days. But heavy activities like football or basketball need longer recovery time (usually around 6 weeks).
Scarring is localized to beneath the breasts and is not excessive. Most patients find that scars gradually fade and become less obvious over the course of 6 to 12 months. Most patients find the scars blend into their natural skin tone. But other cosmetic treatments can be used to improve the appearance of scarred skin. Scarring can be further minimized by using topical creams, eating healthily, and by keeping out of direct sunlight.
The process includes a free examination and a complete consultation on the various breast augmentation options available. We provide realistic advice on the results that can be expected and aim to answer all questions from the patient. The consultation also allows the client to consider whether the treatment is the right option for them.

Breast augmentation may be a suitable treatment for many women. But it is not always the most appropriate choice. The aspirations of the patient must be carefully discussed with a qualified doctor and plastic surgeon. In most cases, the designed outcome can be achieved with silicone implants. But less invasive methods may be appropriate in some cases. When deciding whether breast augmentation is suitable, it is always best to fully research the topic and talk with qualified medical professionals with experience of breast enlargement and breast enhancement.
