Welcome to Dr. Nazmi Baycin’s breast augmentation page. As a plastic surgeon in Dubai, UAE, here I will share my professional knowledge and personal experience about the techniques such as short scar and scarless breast augmentation, implant models, implant placement, recovery after procedure, tips to avoid unwanted results, risks and complications, side effects and more…. You will also have an idea regarding the breast augmentation prices in Dubai. I can show you my personal breast augmentation before and after pictures during the consultation.
The breast is an erogenous organ with symbolizing femininity. Also plays an important role in the physical appearance of a woman. Because women with breast implants feel more confident.
Of course, every woman aspires to look beautiful. However, due to bilateral or unilateral underdevelopment or weight loss after delivery, the breast loses volume.
Consequently, they look smaller than normal size. Breast augmentation surgery provides you fuller, aesthetically pleasing appearance for those who are not pleased with their breast size.
Breast augmentation alone for the patients who have loose breast and likely sagged is not proper choice. Because soft tissue of the breast would sag over the silicone after the procedure.
In such cases, a combination of breast lifting or breast reduction procedure additional to breast augmentation provides much more satisfying result. If you plan to have breast augmentation in Dubai, here, you will find out all the information you need.
Some surgeons have still been performing autologous fat transfer for breast augmentation insistently, in spite of many drawbacks and less patient satisfaction. That is individually an article subject. However, here, I will explain briefly without diving into the details.
If the volume of the fat transplanted into the breast is less than 150 ml on each side, the result of breast augmentation is less obvious. However, the maximum quantity of fat to be transferred is less than 200 ml in general, which is not adequate to obtain a significant difference. Furthermore, 20-50% of the transferred fat will be resorbed by the body within a couple of months, which leads to volume lessens inevitably.
If the maximum quantity of the fat that can be transferred in one session is assumed as 200 ml, the volume contribution of fat transfer is much less than that of the implant can, which ranges between 250 ml and 400+ ml in general. So, multiple fat transfer sessions may require to achieve a significant difference for breast augmentation.
On the other hand, transferred fat may enlarge the breast; however, it cannot give shape. Whereas, since the breast implant has a particular shape, it can also give shape, besides the volume enhancement.
Most importantly, the mammographic view of the calcifications arising from transferred fat, which looks like snowfall, may mask breast cancer and lead to misdiagnosis.
Despite these disadvantages, autologous fat transfer is a useful method to correct breast asymmetries rather than breast augmentation.
My objective is to make you happy as achieving a natural-looking ideal breast size proportioned with your body form with minimum surgical mark. So, breast augmentation will both improve your body image and restore your self-confidence.
Some patients seek a solution as they experienced a failed breast implant surgery before. Inappropriate implant size selection and asymmetric implant positioning are the most common complaint of the patients consulting me. Sometimes, their corrective surgery challenges even more than to do the primary surgery. Therefore your first surgery is crucial. The goal is to achieve the best outcome in a single shot.
Nobody has unlimited breast capacity. Your breast capacity is limited with current breast size and existing breast base width. The larger the breast, the larger the capacity.
So, the breast size you have been dreaming must be the achievable size as regarding your breast capacity. Implant diameter MUST BE LESS than your breast base width to cover it fully. Otherwise, the edge of the implant exceeds the breast margin, becomes visible and palpable a couple of months after breast augmentation. For this reason, the size you have been dreaming and wishing to realize must be realistic and technically feasible.
You may desire your breasts to be larger than the suitable size proportionate to your body before having a breast implant. However, to realize it, if I stuff an implant larger than your breast capacity, the surrounding tissue thinners too much due to the excessive expansion. So that, the implant manifests itself after breast augmentation.
The larger implant, the less natural appearance, the higher risk of late term complication. That is a general rule of breast augmentation surgery. Please note it.
If you wish a huge breast, I can only select an implant as maximum big as your breast capacity and tissue thickness allow. To have a huge breast, do not compel me to select oversized implant. I do not want both you and me to suffer a headache later on.
If you insist to have huge breasts, a serial of gradual breast augmentation requires. So, you will need more than one surgery.
On the other hand, implant size is highly discussed topic on the internet forums. Many women share their experiences on breast augmentation surgery and mention about the outcomes they have achieved related to implant size. So you may get an idea regarding the implant sizes; how much cc implant increases the breast volume and makes how much difference in the breast size.
However, there is a point that you overlook… All such information misleads you and makes your mind confused.
Do not forget that every woman has a different body and breast size. Any implant size reveals different outcomes for each woman. For example, while 250 cc implant provides significant increment for a petite woman with small breast, same implant may show little difference for hefty woman.
So, I as a plastic surgeon, advise you not to determine yourself how much cc you need. Let myself to decide implant size according to your expectation. Just explain me what your expectation is.
After this introduction, it is time to discuss the size. What is ideal breast size? Which size should be after breast augmentation?
Most of the woman express the breast size as referring to bra size. A cup, B cup, C cup so on. However, body proportions vary from woman to woman. For example, while B cup may suit for a petite woman, but may not suit for hefty woman. So, I am leaving the letters of cup sizes, A, B, C so on aside…
I describe the ideal breast as follows:
I always design the new breast size as considering above criteria regardless the A, B, C letters. If you agree with me, I would be pleased for you to be my patient.
Now you can get other technical information regarding the breast augmentation below.
The breast consists of milk glands and fat tissue. Chest muscles (pectoralis major and minor muscles) lie between the ribs and glandular tissue. During the breast augmentation procedure, the implant is either placed between the milk glands and the chest muscle or between the muscle and the ribs.
Both the muscle and glandular tissue together to cover the implant conceals it better. Therefore, the edge of the implant is not noticeable by direct vision and palpation manually following breast augmentation. Because the muscle contributes to the thickness of the covering tissue.
Dual plane breast augmentation is a modification of the sub-muscular placement technique. In this technique, implant locates partly under the muscle, partly under the glandular tissue. According to plastic surgeon’s vision the muscle attachments cover partly.
Placing the implant under the muscle provides more natural look.
Achieving a natural look as well as the placement under the muscle is far in this technique. Usually you would feel the implant when you palpate your breast manually if you have thin breasts. Even, implant edges may be noticeable by direct vision. Sometimes it may look like a ball placed underneath the skin in women who are thin and skinny following breast augmentation. Implant placement over the muscle provides good result and natural appearance only in selected women with adequate soft tissue to cover the implant.
There are 3 ways to insert the implants:
Skin incision about 4 cm locates on the lower margin of the brown area called as areola around the nipple. The surgeon reaches the plane, where the implant locates as passing through the breast glands.
Cutting the glands during the breast augmentation may cause likely breast feed disorder and milk decrement after pregnancy. The nerve involved intimately with the nipple and incision site. Therefore, any possible nerve damage may cause temporary, rarely permanent sensation loss on the nipple.
The surgical wound heals leaving a slight faint mark on the lower margin of the areola.
4 cm skin incision locates on the fold line of the lower breast margin. The wound heals leaving a slight faint mark on the lower margin of the breast.
When the surgeon uses this route, the breast glands remain intact. Thus, even after breast augmentation, breastfeeding disorder and milk decrement will not be a matter after possible pregnancy.
Damage of the nerve supplying the nipple, therefore, the sensation loss of the nipple is also unusual.
Skin incision about 3-4 cm locates on the deep fold lines at the underarm region. I create a tunnel toward underneath the chest muscle, then insert implant through the tunnel. Implants usually locates under the muscle through this route.
In this technique, especially when implant placed under the muscle, the risk of the infection significantly reduces after breast augmentation.
Since the surgical wound locates on underarm, there will be no surgical mark over the breast. The surgical mark on the underarm evanesces by the time; because of overlapping with the fold line.
In axillary incision technique, the breast glands remain intact. Thus, even after breast augmentation, breastfeeding disorder and milk decrement will not happen after possible pregnancy.
The nipple damage, therefore, the sensation loss of the nipple is also unusual.
The standard length of the axillary skin incision is 3-4 cm. Even though the surgical mark will fade, I modified this technique. In order to leave an invisible scar, I designed special instruments developed by myself.
Since the fold line and short scar overlaps, the scar tissue visibility lessens in six months. Then vanishes in one year totally. Thanks to the fact that the surgical wound is as short as 1.5 cm, you will recover quicker with minimal discomfort following breast augmentation.
If you are older than 40, it is better if you take mammography before the breast augmentation surgery.
If you plan to undergo breast augmentation, there are three points you should take account:
I will explain and discuss all of these points during the consultation.
The breast augmentation procedure requires general anesthesia. Surgery will last 0.5 to 1.5 hours depending on which technique I will use.
Cutting the skin in 1,5 cm length through the underarm has some advantages. So, I would prefer scar free breast augmentation technique for the women without deformity and sagging.
You will recover sooner than recovery period of standard breast augmentation techniques because the surgical wound is smaller. Thus you will return your usual life sooner.
You will be able to mobilize few hours after surgery. Most patients feel good enough to return home 4-5 hours after they have breast augmentation.
So, you will be able to return your home same evening. However, if you need rest, you may stay at the hospital overnight.
You will not feel severe pain after breast augmentation procedure. Although the surgery will be under general anesthesia, I will also inject a local anesthetic to the surgical area. Thanks to long-lasting local anesthetic I will use during the procedure, you will not feel any pain on the first day when the actual pain is mostly felt. Mild or moderate pain you will feel on the following days can easily be controlled by pain medication. I will prescribe both antibiotic and pain medication just after the surgery.
Swelling (edema) inherent to surgery, occasional bruising may occur. Swelling and bruising disappear within 10 days.
You will be able to take a shower 2-3 days after breast augmentation.
I always stitch the skin with absorbable and hidden sutures. So you will not feel stitch removal stress.
You will be mobile, not depend on the bed in recovery period. If you feel good yourself enough, then you can return to work in a few days, even you can fly.
A bandage or special garment is worn for 2 weeks following breast augmentation. You will be able to swim after 15 days which is enough time wound to heal.
The complication rates of breast augmentation are the compilation of medical literature data. That does not mean you will experience all those complications.
The surgical risks such as infection and hematoma (blood collection) are all preventable with thorough surgical technique and medication.
Capsule formation surrounding the implant rarely tends to contract as a result of excessive scar tissue, which is out of the surgeon’s control. Usually, it emerges in the first year following breast augmentation. Daily regular breast massaging minimizes the risk of capsular contracture. I will show you how the breast augmentation massage is after the procedure.
Although capsular contracture is the most prominent complication among all risks and complications, the probability is pretty far (less than 5% according to world standards of plastic surgery). To have an opinion, in my career so far, I carried out up to 2000 breast augmentation surgery; I witnessed about 25 capsular contracture cases. Most of the cases recovered with the intensive massaging program, a few of them needed surgical capsule relieving.
Minor asymmetry of breasts may occur after breast augmentation surgery. Though, asymmetric breasts are already naturally seen most of the women in terms of both shape and size. Less than 10% of women have absolute symmetry.
If your breasts are already asymmetric, although I will do my best to correct it, yet minor, negligible asymmetry may still persist.

For the patients who underwent breast augmentation surgery in the past, the necessity of breast implant removal or replacement issue was controversial among plastic surgeons until recently. However, as the implant production technology develops, much more durable implants have come out in recent years. Implants are lifelong devices unless you have any problem arising from the implant or your health. Following the surgery, in particular cases, breast implant removal or exchange may necessitate:
UAE rules do not allow to share breast augmentation before and after pictures. However if you visit me for consultation, I will show you plenty of before and after pictures.
IMPORTANT ! Before getting the appointment, check your medical conditions yourself.
