All about Breast Augmentation surgery in Korea

What is Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation and augmentation mammoplasty (terms known as a "boob job") are plastic surgery terms for the breast-implant and the fat-graft mammoplasty approaches used to increase the size, change the shape, and alter the texture of the breasts of a woman. As an elective, cosmetic surgery, primary augmentation changes the aesthetics – of size, shape, and texture – of healthy breasts. The surgical implantation approach effects the global augmentation of the breast hemisphere using a breast implant, an implant filled with silicone-gel; moreover, the surgical augmentation approach can include the application of transplanted autologous skin flaps harvested from the woman's body. The fat-graft transfer approach augments the size and corrects contour defects of the breast hemisphere with grafts of autologous adipocyte fat tissue, drawn from the woman's body.

AnesthesiaGeneral anesthesia
Hospitalization1 day(including the day of the operation)

Number of
postoperative visits3 times
Recovery periodAble to return to daily activity within 2~3 days after operation

What is combined breast augmentation?
Many women undergo breast augmentation to achieve beautiful and natural-looking breasts. If you happen to have extremely small breasts or thin subcutaneous fat, a general breast augmentation using breast implants is not enough. If you get breast implants using breast augmentation only, the breast implants may be visible or the skin may become wrinkled after an operation.
Not only does a combined breast augmentation make soft tissues thicker by grafting autologous fat, but it also makes your breasts more voluptuous and natural by inserting breast implants.

The features of combined breast augmentation

01 Soft texture- If you have thin subcutaneous fat, you may be able to feel the breast implants under the skin after an operation. In this case, autologous fat should be grafted as well for a more natural feel.
02 Voluptuous breasts- A combined breast augmentation can make your breasts more voluptuous than when either breast implants or autologous fat is inserted. If bigger breast implants are inserted without fat transfer, the breasts may become unnatural and feel awkward.
03 Natural movements- A combined breast augmentation allows for natural movements whenever you stand up, lie down, or take other poses and makes your breasts more elastic.
04 Teardrop breasts- Even though the same teardrop breast implants are inserted, the breast shape may vary depending on the patient’s body shapes. Using fat transfer, we can create more beautiful and voluptuous teardrop breasts.
05 Breast symmetry- We can correct asymmetrical breasts by inserting different sizes of breast implants. In addition, combination breast surgery performed with precise fat transfer can correct asymmetrical breasts more precisely.
06 Beautiful cleavage- If you have wide-set breasts or pigeon breasts, breast implants may make your breasts wider. In this case, fat should be grafted between the breasts to create a beautiful cleavage.
07 Liposuction- For a fat transfer to the breasts, fat is collected from the abdomen or thighs.
In addition, this procedure is effective for reducing cellulites of the abdomen or thighs.

01 Breast Augmentation by using of Endoscopy for the Breast surgery

02 Specialized Medicine prescriptions after operation
03 Minimization of Scar
All the incision area has to be minimized. Because longer incision can make surgery much easier but scar will be shown more also we use melting thread on the hypoderm and special tape to attaching the surface of the skin to minimize the scar. You can start to take shower 2 to 3 days after the operation.

1. We got to find most wrinkled area by moving arms up and downward
2. Make an incision mark about 3.5cm on the most wrinkled area so scar can be hidden after operation
3. Local anesthesia on the armpit and breast 
4. Find right position where implant will inserted by using of HD endoscopy after make an incision 
 5. Minimizing Scar by performing same stitching method as facial plastic surgery
6. 12 months after breast augmentation 

05 Various breast implants
JW Plastic Surgery has various types and sizes of breast implants to find the best breast implants for each patient. In order to design beautiful breasts, we are using various breast implants of Allergan, Mentor, Silimed, Sebbin, Polytech, and Motiva that have been proved safe.

We recommend combined breast augmentation to the following people!
  • 01 Those who have extremely small breasts or thin subcutaneous fat If there is a high probability that the inserted breast implants may be seen due to extremely small breasts or thin subcutaneous fat, we also conduct autoplasty for more natural-looking breasts.
  • 02 Those who have pigeon breasts or wide breastbones (sternum) If you have pigeon breasts, you cannot attain a beautiful cleavage solely though breast implants.
    Cleavage is an important element for femininity. Many women who are willing to undergo a breast augmentation want beautiful and natural-looking cleavage.
    If you have wide sternum or pigeon breasts, you cannot attain natural-looking cleavage solely through breast implants.
    In this case, we graft fat into the cleavage to create beautiful cleavage and voluptuous breasts.
  • 03 Those whose nipples are overly distant from each other If you have wide-set breasts, situating the breast implants closer to the center is not enough to correct the breast shape.
It may instead make the nipples look more distant from each other.
In this case, we apply combined breast augmentation to adjust the center of the nipples and breast implants and then correct the breast asymmetry with fat transfer. This way, we correct wide-set breasts.

Nose surgery with rib cartilage in Korea

Many people, who are considering plastic surgery, are reluctant because they worry about foreign materials being put in their bodies. What options are there for them? For people who want a nose job, their own septal cartilage and ear cartilage can be used to help them get the nose they want. These two cartilages are the most commonly used materials for the augmentation of the nose. What if these are not enough for the augmentation? How about rib cartilage in our chest?

1. What is rhinoplasty with rib cartilage?

Rib cartilage is bigger than septal cartilage or ear cartilage. It is able to provide enough material to modify your nose any way you would like, whether it is lengthening your nose or increasing the height you’ll notice a drastic change.

Sometimes the body will reject foreign materials, however, this doesn’t occur in the case of using rib cartilage. As well, the absorption rate of rib cartilage is much lower than other cartilages so it is able to maintain the shape of the …
