One of the commonest cosmetic surgical procedures is the breast implant. These are now safe and simple and effective, but for some they are a step too far, just not yet or sometimes not ever. For these latter patients we have been searching for an alternative. One which is safer, simpler and more natural. More acceptable than the surgical alternative.
Developed from the same NASHA technology as the gold standard facial filler Restylane, Macrolane™ is a smoother thicker gel which is designed to be placed under the breast tissue and lift it forwards enhancing the shape and fullness in a soft and natural manner. This product is a form of Hyaluronic Acid which is a natural component of skin and is therefore very safe and simple to administer. It has been used in over 40,000 treatments in Japan over the last four years and so, like its facial counterpart, it has an excellent safety record.
One potentially controversial aspect of the gel is that it is temporary in nature and this can be seen as a negative. However for most patients the temporary nature of the enhancement is a positive bonus. It is this temporary nature which appeals to those who are nervous of implanting a plastic foreign body underneath the breast tissue. Macrolane™ lasts from 12 to 18 months and then gradually fades away naturally.
This means that it does benefit from being ‘topped up’ roughly once a year. However this aspect also gives another unique reason for choosing Macrolane™. Because of this temporary nature we can tailor the volume used to your own personal preference balancing up uneven sides and choosing to be a little bigger this year or slightly smaller next as you decide how you want to look. This allows us to provide an individually tailored enhancement to your own personal preferences. Whereas surgeons have a small selection of standard volumes they can add, we can implant precisely as much as you want or feel you need.
We can also precisely tailor the position of the gel to add a little more here and a little less there, again allowing us to adjust the result to individually enhance your own shape.
Have you noticed how frequently some well known people in the public eye have changed there implants for smaller or larger ones? This is much easier with the Macrolane™ injectable enhancement.
This safe and simple procedure is performed under a local anaesthetic through a small injection site and so there is minimal downtime, minimal risk and minimal discomfort. The results are visible instantaneously and can add between a half a cup size to a cup and a half depending on your personal preference and what we start with. This technique is more advanced than normal fillers and so you will only find it at a select few clinics.
