An innovative breast augmentation technique
Minimally invasive breast augmentation is a state-of-the-art technique for placing breast implants by making a very short incision in the breast or under the arms. The procedure involves an incision in a natural crease in your breast so that it is difficult to notice that surgery has been performed.
To reduce scarring to a minimum, the surgeon uses, among other things, a Keller introducer (Keller Funnel). This technology makes it possible to introduce the silicone breast implant through reduced incisions.
Dr. Christophe Desouches, who regularly practices all breast augmentation methods (breast implant, lipofilling), recommends this particularly well-tolerated technique whenever possible.
Results and advantages of this method
Due to the expertise and experience of Dr. Christophe Desouches, the result is a natural breast augmentation that leaves only an almost imperceptible scar. Patient comfort is significantly improved, less analgesic is used, and recovery is faster.
In addition, the Keller introducer prevents the implant from coming into contact with the patient?s epidermis, which reduces the risk of infection.
Finally, by reducing tension and stress around the insertion area, this technology allows for more painless insertion, also limits potential pain during healing and speeds up recovery time.
very small scars
The incision is placed directly into one of the natural skin folds, at the areola, under the breast or in the armpit, so that when it heals it disappears into the natural appearance of the area concerned.
This minimally invasive method can reduce the size of scars to a maximum of 3 cm.
Minimally invasive breast augmentation is painless
The discomfort resulting from the procedure is reduced thanks to the use of the Keller Funnel which limits the stresses around the incision area. The possible pain is mainly due to the submuscular breast augmentation, the implants in front of the muscle in the subfascial position being much less painful.
How is a minimally invasive breast augmentation performed?
Dr. Christophe Desouches studies the optimal position and size of the incision according to your morphology and the size of the implants. Thanks to this incision, he creates a space in front or behind the pectoral muscle to accommodate the implant. He then inserts the implants using the Keller introducer, a technology that allows him to significantly reduce the stresses during insertion.
Once the breast implants are placed, the incision is closed with deep stitches that slowly resorb without any visible threads on the skin.
The type of implant used by Dr. Christophe Desouches is generally a round implant based on cohesive silicone gel without texturing (smooth implant).
