Surgery for inclusion Silicone implants

The Breast Augmentation is one of the most performed surgeries in Brazil and the United States. The surgery to enlarge the breasts with Breast Implants uses silicone implants to add volume to the breasts or to restore breast volume lost after weight loss or pregnancy.


We can increase the size and projection of the breasts when performing this surgical procedure. The vast majority of patients report improved self-esteem and self-confidence and the level of satisfaction is very high.


Each patient is unique and their characteristics and wishes should be taken into account when planning this surgery and in choosing the silicone implant. There is no size or ideal way to implant the desire of the patient associated with aesthetic sense and the surgeon's expertise will be useful for that choice.


Breast implants are silicone shells filled with silicone gel. Despite the implants filled with saline are safe, in Brazil this type of implant has fallen into disuse.   


The choice of techniques to be used for the incisios  (the periareolar, the transareolopapilar, the inframammary crease and axillary) depends on both the physical examination of the patient as your preferences. We will discuss the placement of the implants, behind the pectoral muscle on the chest wall or above the muscle.  At the time of your consultation, Dr. Lyrio will discuss in detail the choice of implants best suited for your and the pros and cons each model of silicone implants. 


Dr. Lyrio use only U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved silicone breast implants for breast augmentation surgery.   

A big question of the patients is the location of the implants. Basically we can choose between two techniques: subglandular (behind the mammary glands) and submuscular (behind the pectoralis major muscle). Again the physical examination and the patient's wishes should be taken into account when deciding.

There are several types and manufacturers of breast implants. These texturized, the polyurethane and salines. The implant profile can also be chosen (high-profile, low, ultra-high, moderate and anatomical). This variety of forms should be presented with all the information inherent in each so that the choice is as close as possible to the result that the patient expects.


The implants can also be used for breast reconstruction after mastectomy or injury by trauma.


Dr. Lyrio performs breast implants Insertion surgery in hospitals with ICU support always striving for patient safety.


Surgery to reduce de size of the Breast

Breast Reduction is also known as Mammoplasty Reduction Surgery. This operation promotes breast reduction by surgical removal of excess fat, glandular tissue and skin, causing a commensurate size with Breast the body of the patient. The operation, besides improving the aesthetic appearance of the breasts, promotes improvement of symptoms generated by the weight of very large breasts, such as back pain and discomfort.


Large breasts can cause pain, poor posture, skin lesions at the bottom of the breasts, breathing problems, skeletal deformities. Also it leads to low self-esteem, and deprivation of the patient in attending environments like the beach and clubs for having embarrassed to wear bathing suits. The Reducing Breast usually fosters a rediscovery of this social participation, making the patient more active and thereby improving the quality of life.


The breasts are smaller and lighter after surgery. The success of the procedure depends on the sincerity of medical plastic surgeon and real expectation of patient, so before performing this surgery is very important that patients discuss with the surgeon and remove all doubt. Usually the main questions are the ultimate breast size and scars ..
