Apart from the plastic surgery itself, the patient would also need to consider extra costs that are not included in the price quote they receive. These can comprise of the cost of prescription drugs the patient may need to take, the surgical garments required for after the surgery, and the costs of medical tests if necessary, among others. It should be noted, though, that some plastic doctors exclude the anaesthesiologist's fee and operating room charges from their quote, so it is always recommended to read the small letters or ask what's included in the offered package so you can have the right overall cost estimate for the Brazilian buttock augmentation.
Dr. Jugenburg uses advanced wound closure techniques and dissolvable deep sutures to support the repositioned skin and tissue on the breasts and minimize the risk of visible scar stretching. In some patients, permanent Gore-Tex sutures may also be used to provide long-term support. All patients are required to wear a surgical support bra at all times for 6 weeks after surgery, which will lessen tension on the incision lines and prevent scar stretching. Patients are also instructed to sleep on their backs during this time to avoid pressure on the breasts.
Finally, there’s the so-called scarless lift. Women who are seeking a mild lift but are dead set against leaving scars anywhere on their breasts may opt for a technique that uses a network of dissolving surgical threads inserted through tiny incisions along the collar bone, guided under the breast tissue, and then anchored to the collar bone, to create an internal bra of sorts. Scar tissue forms around the threads, theoretically providing support to lift the nipple.
