Enhance your female silhouette and create breast symmetry and volume through breast augmentation
Whether you are unhappy with your breasts because of shape, size or symmetry, breast augmentation can help. This procedure uses implants to give you the size and fullness you did not get from Mother Nature. With different sizes and shapes now available, we can tailor your breast augmentation procedure to your specifications to produce results that are natural and beautiful.
We offer a variety of techniques when performing breast augmentation to ensure patients achieve the best possible outcome from their surgery. One of the techniques used at IMAGN INSTITUTE, pioneered by our Medical Director, Dr. Ahmad Saad, is progressively becoming more and more popular around the globe. Known as the Harmonie Breast Augmentation, this method uses a unique placement of the implant to guarantee the most natural results possible, with a quicker recovery time in most cases.
Are You a Candidate for breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation is appropriate for adult those women who would like to enhance the size and shape of their breasts. This procedure might be the right choice for you if you have any of the following concerns:
- Small breasts in relation to your other body contours
- Breasts that are different shapes or sizes
- Loss of breast volume after pregnancy or breastfeeding
- Self-consciousness about your appearance due to your breast size
- Avoidance of certain types of clothing because of your smaller breasts
Once you decide breast augmentation is right for you, there will be numerous decisions to make as you prepare for your procedure.
Breast Augmentation options
You will be given a choice between saline and silicone implants. Both feature a silicone shell, but saline implants are filled with a sterile saline liquid, while silicone have a jelly-like silicone substance inside. The saline implants are considered to have a firmer feel, while silicone implants are described as having a more natural breast tissue feel, due to the thicker and stickier gel inside. There are pros and cons to both types and our surgeons will help you determine which option will meet your needs more appropriately.
There are three placement options for breast implants: in the breast tissue above the fascia and chest muscle, underneath the fascia and chest muscle or underneath the fascia, known as the Harmonie technique, pioneered by our surgeons, which provides a natural look without distortions to the breast when the chest muscle is flexed. While many patients opt for the Harmonie technique, it is not right for everyone. Our surgeons will help you determine which placement method is best for you, based on the type of implant you choose, the size of the implant and your overall body size and shape.
Shape and Size
Breast implants come in different sizes to accommodate every woman’s body shape, and are also available in both round and anatomical (teardrop-shaped) styles. The anatomical implants, used in Harmonie, create a more natural look with less volume on the upper breast than is created with round implants. Round implants can be placed over or under the muscle and fascia. Placement under the muscle can be fully or partially covered by muscle when placed in the sub-pectoral plane. Implants placed under the muscle have been shown to help prevent some of the potential complications of breast augmentation, including limiting risk of capsule contracture, limiting the “round” look of implants, preventing visible rippling or wrinkling of the implants, preventing “bottoming out” of the implants, and increased longevity.

The Recovery Process
Your recovery from breast augmentation surgery will depend in large part on the placement of your implants. The Harmonie technique results in the shortest, most comfortable recovery process in most cases. Patients that undergo this method are usually back to most of their activities within a few days. Implants placed above the chest muscle also tend to result in a quicker, more comfortable healing process, while implants placed under the muscle may require a slightly longer recovery. We will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your bruising and how to implement massage techniques crucial to the recovery process. Most patients are back to a full schedule within 1 week, and strenuous exercise by the four-week mark after getting your breast implants.
