Breast implant or Augmentation Mammoplasty is one of the most popular surgeries among women. Breast implant is best suited for women who have small breasts or have lost breast volume because of breast feeding, pregnancy, weight lost, and cancer.
This surgery is done by placing the implant behind the breast tissue or under the pectoral muscle, depending on the doctor`s decision. In this surgery, depending on the patient`s status, either general anesthesia or local anesthesia is used.
Breast implants surgery in Iran
Breast implant surgery is one of the five top surgeries performed in Iran. Doctors are highly experienced and have about 200000 cases of breast implant surgery per year. The hospitals of Iran meet the highest standards of cleaning and comfort, provide the cutting-edge equipment for surgery, the best possible service for the patient`s comfort and satisfactory, and cheap prices with high quality. (because of the low value of Iranian money, you will be able to get the same surgery much cheaper (about $2000) in Iran than your country (about $4000)! This applies to all of the medical care in Iran for international patients.)
There is no need for overnight stay in the hospital for breast augmentation surgery and you can return to your hotel and rest for the next one week. Post-surgery you are forbidden to anything heavy, you can just move around and do light activities, so in the case you are alone we provide you someone to help you around so you can rest.
The implant itself is a sac filled with sterile water (Saline) or a material named silicone.
+ less monitoring and supervision is needed
+ costs less
+ slightly smaller incision is needed
+ in the case of breakage, there is no harm to the body. Since it is saltwater it can be absorbed into the body
-- high risk of getting wrinkled
-- gives unnatural feeling when touching the breast
-- can affect the tissue and texture of the breast
-- possibility of rupturing and leaking of the implant inside the breast
Silicone Implant (Gummy Bears):
+ Gummy bear implants are highly cohesive gel so they can hold their form even in the case of breakage
+ lower risk of getting wrinkled
+ no possibility of implant getting depleted by itself inside the breast
+ looks and feels natural especially when moving
+ implant`s chances of getting ruptured is quite low due to its gel-like consistency
+ Silicone implants last quite longer than Saline implants
-- need of constant monitoring and checking with ultrasound and MRI
-- possibility of rupturing with no signs
-- costs more
-- bigger incision is needed
The shape of the implants can be Round or Teardrop.

There are different places on the body for incision to avoid visible scaring. Incision can be along the areolar edge (peri-areolar incision), the fold under the breast (inframammary fold) and in the armpit (trans axillary incision).
Breast lift is best suited for people whose breasts are saggy, lost volume and they want more perky breasts. Also, for people who have been through weight lost, pregnancy, have nipples pointing downwards, people whose nipples and the dark area around nipples (areolae) have stretched and are not in proportion with their breasts, and for people who have lost the firm shape of their breasts due to aging.
Breast lift is not suited for people whom are breast feeding and have plans for pregnancy in the future because it will stretch and offset the result of the breast lift.
This surgery does not change the size of the breast. The incisions are done:
- Around the areolae (the darker area surrounding the nipples)
- Extending downward from the areolae to the breast creases
- Horizontally along the breast creases
Some of the breast lift surgery`s risks are:
Sacring (although they will soften over the time, they can be hidden under the bra or bathing suit), losing nipple sensation, possibility of breasts asymmetry in shape and size of the breasts, difficulty in breast feeding, and possibility of infection.
