During a breast augmentation procedure, Mr Tariq Ahmad will make an incision along the natural crease underneath the breast, which is called the inframammary fold, or around the nipple. Then an implant pocket is made either above or below the chest muscle and the implant is inserted.
Modern implants have a thicker are developed using the latest technology and have specially coated shell which means there is far less chance of the implant rupturing and that the risk of capsular contracture is reduced.
Mr Ahmad performs a breast augmentation procedure under general Anaesthetic and it usually involves a one-night stay in hospital.Book Consultation
