Breast Implant

Breast Implant

Experience the renewed confidence and comfort with your appearance that comes with a clearly proportioned body. A firmer and sexier bust-line can be yours.

How will surgery be performed?

The breast implant or augmentation can be placed either partially under the pectoralis major muscle (sub-muscular procedure) or on top of the muscle and under the breast glands (sub-glandular procedure), depending on breast tissue thickness and adequate coverage of the implant. Your FVH Surgeon will explain the options and recommend the most suitable implant placement.

Incision site: Incision can be made either in the armpit, around the nipple or areola, which usually enlarge in proportion to the increased breast size, or alternatively in the lower breast crease. Again, your FVH surgeon will advise you on where the incision will be made dependant on the exact type and size of implant.

Implant size: Your FVH surgeon will start by measuring your breast base width. Implants come in various sizes. Cup size will also be discussed as implants come in a variety of volumes. Generally, the larger the cup size you want, the larger the breast implant your surgeon will consider.

Your FVH surgeon will also evaluate your existing tissue to determine if you have enough tissue to cover the breast implant. A breast implant that is too large can result in excessive skin stretch and future corrective surgeries. The implant edges may be apparent post-operatively. Excessively large breast implants may also result in earlier droop or sag.

Implant shape: In addition to size, you will have the option to re-shape your breasts, either to be more rounded or to be shaped like a teardrop.

Type of Implants:

Two types of breast implant filler materials are used with many different shapes and textures:

  • Saline - a silicone shell filled with sterile saline solution
  • Silicone gel - a silicone shell filled with a viscous silicone gel.

Our saline and silicone gel breast implants are either approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or carry the European standard CE mark (The CE marking is an acronym for the French "Conformité Européenne). The choice of implant filler, implant size, shape and other features will be determined based on your breast anatomy, body type and your desired increase in breast size. Your lifestyle, goals, personal preferences, as well as your FVH surgeon's recommendations and sound surgical judgment will all be factors in the final decision.

We offer our patients from all over the world a choice of brands and types of implants, which are guaranteed for life - Mc Ghan and Mentor implants from America and Eurosilicone implants from France.

What kind of anaesthesia will I need?

General anaesthesia is usual but local anaesthesia, complemented by sedation, is also possible in consultation with your anaesthetist.

How long will surgery take?

Usually between one and two hours.

Will I feel pain afterwards?

Breast augmentation stretches the tissues and can be painful, especially when the implants are placed under the muscle and for younger women who have never had children. The pain is greatest for the first two days and then improves with each day. If severe, your FVH Surgeon will prescribe medication.

How long is recovery?

Three nights in hospital are usually required . You will feel very groggy for the first two and quite weak during the first week. One should plan as much rest as possible as it is very important for healing.

Your new breasts will be elavated for the first three weeks, then settling into a very natural position. A support bra may be required for a while to help your breasts form naturally and maintain a pleasing, balanced and contoured shape.

Arm extension should be kept to a minimum for at least three to five days as tissues will heal more rapidly if you avoid stretching and separating the muscle/tissue surrounding the implants

Calm, quiet work is possible a few days following your surgery.

Will there be bruising and swelling?

Both are expected with such an operation. The swelling could continue for several weeks, then will gradually subside.

Will I have to remove the stitches?

A simple procedure done by your FVH surgeon seven to ten days after surgery - usually during your follow-up consultation.

Will there be scars?

Pink scars lasting for several weeks, beginning to fade after several months.

New developments in breast implant techniques can minimise the amount of visible scarring. A “no-scar” breast implant is impossible but depending on the choice of technique, you could be virtually scar free.

What can be done about scarring following surgery?

Several possibilities can be considered. In addition to innovations used to make your scars as inconspicuous as possible, FVH surgeons have special methods to reduce and remove scars on every part of the body using creams and lotions.

    • War Remnants Museum:
    • Formerly known as the Museum of American War Crimes, this is a poignant display of the futility of war. Some of the black and white photography in the ‘Requiem’ exhibit is particularly touching, dedicated to both foreign and Vietnamese journalists and photographers who perished during the conflict. The courtyard outside contains the spoils of war, namely rusting jets, tanks and cannons captured from the American military machine.
    • Notre Dame Cathedral and Old Post Office: Built between 1877 and 1883 this is one of the city’s best examples of classical French colonial architecture. Remarkably, every stone used in its creation was shipped from France to Vietnam. Her two 40-metre towers, topped with iron spires, dominate the city’s sky line.
