An innovative breast augmentation technique
Minimally invasive breast augmentation is an advanced 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 when possible.
Results and advantages of the minimally invasive 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, the amount of analgesic used is less and recovery is faster.
In addition, the Keller introducer prevents the implant from coming into contact with the patient's skin, reducing the risk of infection.
Finally, by reducing the tensions and constraints around the insertion zone, this technology allows a more painless insertion, also limits the potential pain during healing and accelerates the recovery time.
Very small scars
The incision is placed directly in one of the natural folds of the skin, 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 reduces the size of scars to a maximum of 3 cm.
Minimally invasive breast augmentation is not very painful
The discomfort that results from the intervention 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 sub-fascial position being much less painful.
How is 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. Through this incision, it creates a space in front of or behind the pectoral muscle to accommodate the implant. He then inserts the implants using Keller's introducer, a technology that allows him to significantly reduce stress during insertion.
Once the breast implants are placed, the incision is closed with deep stitches that slowly subside 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).
