Procedure techniques & scars



Dr. Mok most often uses silicone cohesive gel smooth round implants. The type of implant, silicone or saline, and the position of the implant, above or below the muscle, depends on several factors that are patient and surgeon specific. During your consultation Dr. Mok helps patients determine the right type of implant for them.

Most often, a small incision is made along the bottom fold of the breast, where the breast meets the ribcage. This incision is easily hidden along the crease of the breast to provide very natural looking results. The implant is placed through the incision and into a breast pocket created by Dr. Mok. The breast pocket largely determines how your results will look, a pocket to large can create implant movement and an unnatural look. For this reason, it is extremely important to see a surgeon with many years of experience.

Custom dual plane technique
with internal bra

By using a combination of advanced, signature augmentation techniques, Dr. Mok can achieve a sort of “scarless breast lift” on many patients who have mild to moderate breast and nipple sagging.

The implant can be placed in different ways to give patients the results they are looking for. The dual plane technique involves placing the top portion of the implant behind the chest muscle, while leaving the bottom portion behind the breast tissue. This is used most by Dr. Mok for patients who have normal breast shape and desire an augmentation. In some cases, however, implant placement above the muscle and behind the breast tissue may be recommended.

Breast augmentation surgery is designed to increase the size and volume of the breasts by inserting an implant behind the breast tissue. Breast implants fill out the breast and create a fuller, rounder look which can appear to lift the breast to a certain degree and reduce sag. With that said, this is not the primary goal of augmentation and if sagging breasts is of concern, a breast lift may also be recommended during your surgery.

Healthy patients who undergo surgery with no complications typically take 1-2 weeks away from their regular activities. This may depend on the nature of their job and how well they are healing after surgery. After one month of healing, patients usually feel they can resume light exercise, but are recommended to avoid strenuous activity and heavy lifting for at least six weeks.

Despite having a breast augmentation, some patients find their lifestyle changes, or the effects of aging change the way they feel about their results.
