An incision is made at the site, and a silicone implant is inserted either above or below the muscle. The surgery takes 1-3 hours and is usually performed under general anaesthetic on an outpatient basis.
Temporary discomfort, tightness of tissues, swelling, bruising and temporary nerve numbness or tingling.
Movement of the implant, infection, bleeding, hypertrophic or keloid scarring. If implants become infected they would most likely need to be removed, and then re-inserted once the tissues have healed.
Infection, asymmetry, sensory changes, scarring.
Results are location-specific and are designed to realign the body through a subtle increase in volume to targeted areas. While most implants are used to create balance, custom implants can be made to recreate symmetry for patients who have had previous surgery, injury or disease.
Results are permanent.
