Overview of facial- and figure corrections:

Breast lift
When doing a breast lift, the breast gland is molded into the wanted shape and attached to the breast muscle. Afterwards the excess skin is removed and the nipple is placed higher up which creates a natural looking and firm breast.

Breast augmentation
When doing a breast augmentation an implant is placed through the nipple or breast fold. The cut in the skin is about 4 to 5 cm wide. Implants are placed behind or in front of the breast muscle. Sometimes Dr. Brewaeys applies the implant less deep, in between the breast muscle and breast gland. This is done mostly when the breast has sagged a little bit. The positioning is chosen dependant on the existing situating, the volume, the firmness and the patient's personal wishes.

Which implant to chose?
Choosing the right volume is very important and Dr. Brewaeys will guide you when choosing it with his vast experience. There needs to be made a choice on size and shape.

The size
For most women it's important that the end result looks natural, not too big not too small. There are different profiles, low, normal and high. A high profile is narrower at the base but protrudes more to the front. This profile is more compatible with women who have a narrow thorax. A low profile is wider and flatter and looks more natural. Dr. Brewaeys will advise you in choosing the right profile.

The shape
Round implants are a little bit more supple and are mostly placed in front of the breast muscle. They give the breasts nice round shape. Also on the top side of the breast.
Anatomical implants have a droplet-like shape and guarantee a very natural result.

The filling
The implant is made out of a silicone exterior and are filled with a silicone gel or with water.
- A silicone implant is the most popular type because they feel more like genuine breast tissue. The gel makes sure that the shape stays.
Water-filled implants are filled with a salt water solution during the operation. This type of implant feels less natural but can be placed through the armpit. This type is less commonly applied.

The brand
Dr. Brewaeys works with the best implants made by Mentor, who provide the best warranty available on their products.

Breast reduction
When doing a breast reduction we remove breast tissue and excess skin. At the same time the nipple is lifted and often made smaller. The breast gland is then put into the desired shape and attached to the breast muscle.

Tummy tuck.
A tummy tuck consists out of three parts. First the weak and stretched muscles are tightened to create a flat belly. In the second phase Dr. Brewaeys cuts out the excess skin and he relocates the the navel. The third part is a liposculpture of the abdominal area and the sides.

Thigh lift
Thigh lift surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.
 
Arm lift
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that reduces excess sagging skin that droops downward.

Liposuction
Through liposuction you can correct your figure locally. Liposuction is one of the most popular operations. Especially at the hips, belly and inner side of the thighs.

Labia correction
Despite the fact that this is a very simple procedure it still is, unfortunately, for many women hard to talk about.
A labia correction consists of removing the superfluous part of the labia. The clitoris stays untouched, the sensitivity in the erogenous zone does not change.
 
Narcosis
Most operations are performed under full narcosis because this is experienced as being more comfortable and pleasant for the patient. Especially during long procedures and when multiple zones are being worked on. The social handicap is mainly there for facial operations and it can run up to three weeks. The unfitness for work runs from one day to two weeks. With major contour procedures it can be up to four weeks.
