Combination Breast Augmentation
What is combined breast augmentation?
Combined breast augmentation for voluptuous and natural-looking breasts
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.
Combined Breast Augmentation
Tear drop Implant Breast Augmentation by using of HD Endoscopy
|Surgery Duration||1.5~2 hours||Anesthesia||General anesthesia|
|Hospitalization||Not Required||Removal of stitches||5~7 days after the operation|
|Number of postoperative visits||3 times||Recovery Period||Able to return to daily activity within 2~3 days after operation|
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.
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.
The Knowhow for JW’s Natural Breast Augmentation
01. Natural and Well-rounded breast!
02. Natural and Soft textured breast!
03. Minimized damaged to the tissues and blood vessel!
04. Minimized uneven breast!
05. No Contracture!
06. No Scar and No Pain!
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.
Minimizing Scar on Armpit.
We got to find most wrinkled area by moving arms up and downward
|Make an incision mark about 3.5cm on the most wrinkled area so scar can be hidden after operation|
|Local anesthesia on the armpit and breast
|Find right position where implant will inserted by using of HD endoscopy after make an incision
|Minimizing Scar by performing same stitching method as facial plastic surgery|
|12 months after breast augmentation|
Normally previous periareola incision method was circular incision so scar was more shown but JW Plastic Surgery Korea use “zigzag periareola incision method” to minimize the scar.

04. Wearing of Special correction bra
There are possibilities of moving implants after operation related with life cycle, breast tissue, etc. even though there was correction of unevenness breast. As an example right handed person use right arm than left arm so there could be movement of implants after operation. To improve these problems there will be need of wearing correction bra after Breast augmentation.
05. Pain management system
Many patients worry about the pain of breast surgery.
Pain is generally generated by bleeding and tissue damages. Using HD endoscopy, JW Plastic Surgery minimizes bleeding and tissue damages to reduce pain. In addition, intercostal anesthesia is provided during an operation and analgesics are prescribed after an operation. In this way, the patients hardly feel any pain and don’t need any epidural injections for pain. Patients can leave the hospital on the day of surgery without hospitalization.
06. Breast surgery that doesn’t require any massage
Smooth breast implants
When using smooth breast implants, enough space of the breast implants should be secured. This space should not be narrowed so that the breast implants can freely move. For this purpose, the patient should get a massage therapy one week after an operation.
Textured breast implants
Massage not required
The rough surface of textured breast implants prevents contracture and induces the assimilation the breast implants with the neighboring tissues by weakening the force tightening the capsula. Therefore, textured breast implants reduce the risk of side effects such as capsular contracture and location transformation, compared to smooth breast implants. In addition, breast augmentation using textured breast implants does not require any massage therapy. In the past, textured breast implants were not widely used because their texture was unnatural compared to smooth breast implants. Now, textured breast implants have become more widely used since their texture has been greatly improved.
Tip. What is capsular contracture?
When breast implants are inserted, a thin film consisting of scar tissues is formed around them. This film is called capsule. All patients who undergo breast augmentation using breast implants experience this phenomenon. Capsular contracture refers to a phenomenon that the capsule becomes abnormally thick. If the patient experiences severe capsular contracture, the breasts may be transformed into the shape of a ball. Capsular contracture may occur when the surgical sites are filled with blood or infected. The patient may experience capsular contracture due to severe rejection reactions, depending on his/her constitution. To prevent this, the surgical sites should be carefully stanched and disinfected and space for breast implants should be secured accurately. In addition, the patient should take contraction preventives after an operation. The patient should receive massage therapies after an operation using smooth breast implants. However, textured breast implants do not require massage therapies because their surface is already treated with capsular contracture preventives.
The features of JW’s breast surgery
01. Pioneer in endoscopic breast augmentation
M.D. Seul Chul-hwan of JW Plastic Surgery has been performing endoscopic breast augmentation since it was first introduced to Korea. Through numerous academic presentations and activities, he has contributed to spreading endoscopic breast augmentation in Korea. M.D. Seul Chul-hwan designs beautiful breasts through safe HD endoscopic breast augmentation.
02. With 18 years of Experiences of Knowhow in fat transfer
Some patients experience bumpy and uneven skin after liposuction on their thighs or abdomen. JW Plastic Surgery performs liposuction in the shape of a fan to create smooth body lines.
High survival rates through precise transfer
In traditional fat transfer procedures, a lump of fat is used for grafting. However, JW Plastic Surgery applies a micro fat transfer. After separating fat, it is grafted under the skin using a micro syringe. This procedure minimizes pain but maximizes the survival rate of transferred fat.
03.Customized Breast Augmentation using a sizer
Before inserting breast implants, check the optimal breast size, breast symmetry, and detachment using a sizer.
As this step extends the surgery duration and increases the costs, many hospitals often skip it. However, JW Plastic Surgery considers this step to be very important to find the most suitable sized breast implants and obtain optimized results.
- STEP 01 Secure space for breast implants using HD endoscopy equipment for breast surgery.
- STEP 02 Insert a sizer to find appropriate-sized breast implants.
- STEP 03 Based on the analysis results, insert appropriately-sized breast implants.
- STEP 04 This method to find an appropriate size helps to create beautiful and natural-looking breasts and correct asymmetrical breasts.
04. Minimized incisions, scars, and pain
JW Plastic Surgery minimizes incisions for less scarring and patient’s satisfaction and rapid recovery.
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, and Polytech 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 fat transfer 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.

Beautiful cleavage project: Combined breast augmentation
If you have wide sternum, pigeon breasts, or wide-set breasts, it is difficult to create natural-looking cleavage. In combined breast augmentation, autologous fat is grafted to the empty part between the breasts to create natural-looking cleavage.
- STEP 01 Secure space for breast implants using endoscopy machine and predict the expected breast shape and size using a sizer.
- STEP 02 Reinforce soft tissues with fat transfer
- STEP 03 Select and insert the most suitable breast implants, considering the expected breast size and shape.
- STEP 04 Transfer more fat to the breasts if necessary.
* Postoperative complications such as bleeding and infection vary depending on the patient’s conditions. Pay extra attention to postoperative management.
