Exploring Breast Reconstruction Process in Dubai

Breast reconstruction surgery in Dubai offers two distinct approaches. One involves utilizing the body’s own tissues (such as fat, tissue, and muscles) for reconstruction, while the other employs breast implants. In certain cases, a combination of both methods may be used to achieve optimal results.

Free Tissue Transfer: This method, considered the gold standard for breast reconstruction, involves extracting tissue and muscle flaps from the abdomen through abdominoplasty. These are then meticulously relocated and reattached in the breast area to provide volume. This specialized microsurgery technique, often employing a TRAM flap, minimizes complications and ensures a successful outcome. The extraction of muscle and fat tissue is based on the patient’s health considerations.

Silicone Implants: Silicone implants are commonly used in breast reconstruction, especially after mastectomy. These implants, filled with gel-like material encased in silicone, are positioned beneath the skin of the breast. The decision to incorporate tissue transfer implants alongside breast reconstruction depends on individual circumstances.

Body Fat Transfer: In conjunction with breast implants, a breast surgeon may utilize the patient’s own body fat to shape the breasts. This approach involves Autologous Fat Transfer (AFT), where fat is harvested through liposuction. The extracted fat is then processed and injected into and around the breast tissue or implant, resulting in desired breast shape and natural volume. Fat transfer contributes to balanced proportions and symmetry in the breasts. Often, this procedure is followed by nipple and areola reconstruction to finalize the overall breast reconstruction.

Nipple and Areola Reconstruction: The nipple, a central protrusion of the breast, is accompanied by the pigmented area around it known as the areola. Reconstruction of both the nipple and areola is integral following a mastectomy. Restoration can be achieved using native breast skin, tattooing, or hyperpigmentation, which involves enhancing the pigmented region.

If you’re considering breast reconstruction surgery in Dubai, Dr. Yasser Khattab is ready to guide you through the process, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of your options. This journey begins with an informative consultation to address your specific needs.
