The HARMONIE Breast Augmentation technique was co-developed by IMAGN INSTITUTE associated surgeons to deliver the smoothest, most natural results to breast augmentation patients.
Breast augmentation is one of the most common reasons women visit a plastic surgeon today. With many options to choose from, it can be challenging to determine which technique will give you the best results possible. For many women, that choice is an innovative method known as HARMONIE Breast Augmentation, co-pioneered by IMAGN INSTUTUTE surgeons to provide patients with natural results and minimal discomfort and downtime.
HARMONIE Breast Augmentation involves a slightly different placement of the implant, which presents a profound difference in the results. Our patients find that the surgery produces natural, elegant results with less discomfort and downtime compared with other breast augmentation techniques. In addition, the HARMONIE method does not disturb the pectoral muscles, which means no distortion of the breast when the muscle is flexed.
Are You a Candidate for a harmonie breast augmentation?
Women looking for a natural shape and curve to their breast augmentation may find the HARMONIE method is the right choice for them. This technique can be used on any woman with the following goals:
- More size and fullness of the breasts
- A natural upper pole and increased volume in the lower half of the breast
- Less discomfort and a faster recovery than traditional breast augmentation techniques
- Larger breasts to increase their confidence in their appearance
- Enhancement in breast size without worry over distortion when the chest muscle is flexed
The HARMONIE method is only offered by IMAGN INSTITUTE and by our collaborators that helped develop this technique.
Harmonie Breast Augmentation options
While teardrop-shaped silicone implants are always used for this surgery, the size of the implant can vary based on the specifications of the individual patient. We can help you visualize what various sizes and profiles will look like to help you make the right choice for you.
Incisions for the HARMONIE Breast Augmentation might include placement within the breast crease, around the areola, or in the armpit. No matter which incision you choose, we will take all the necessary steps to minimize visible scarring after your procedure by placing the incision within the natural lines of the skin and using suturing techniques that will promote the best healing of the incision after surgery.
During the procedure a pocket will be created between the fascia and the pectoral muscle, in which your implant will be inserted. Once the implant is in the correct position, the incision will be closed and the augmentation process will be completed.

The Recovery Process
Because the pectoral muscle is not disturbed during a HARMONIE Breast Augmentation, recovery is usually faster and more comfortable than with other techniques. Our patients typically experience minimal discomfort after this surgery, and oral pain medication is sufficient to keep you pain-free during the first few days after surgery. The breasts also tend to heal faster during this time frame, which means you will likely be back to regular activities within a matter of days.
Despite the shorter recovery after HARMONIE Breast Augmentation, your final results will be just as satisfactory and long-lasting. HARMONIE provides a smooth, natural slope to the breast, enhanced by the fascia covering the implant. The results are superior, even in women with less breast tissue. You will not have to worry about distortion to the breasts during certain activities and exercise.
