As beautiful breasts must be symmetrical with the entire body, breast surgeons must be equipped with outstanding aesthetic sense. MD hospital can create perfect breasts for patients as it focuses only on the creation of beautiful breasts without implementing surgery of other body parts, such as eyes or nose.

  • 04. Customized
  • MD hospital does not apply the same method to all patients. Rather, the optimal implant, size and method are decided by considering individual characteristics and preference. We do not insist on a certain texture type or select a certain incision site according to doctor’s preference, but choose the most appropriate method for each patient to produce optimal results.

  • 05. 3-step pain suppressing system
  • MD hospital carries out the 3-step pain suppressing system in addition to the intercostal nerve block, the knowhow that we have implemented from 2003. MD hospital suppresses pain in advance during surgery to provide patients with top satisfaction in relation to less pain and quick recovery.

If capsular contracture is generated, MD hospital provides patients with the most effective revision surgery.

  • 07. Continuous research

  • Rigorous examination before surgery
  • For the safest operation, anesthesia and other risks involved in the operation are checked and eliminated. Especially, the patient’s burden and discomfort is reduced as we provide free breast cancer examination (detailed mammography and ultrasonography), chest X-ray, electrocardiography, various blood tests (anemia workup including blood pigment, electrolyte, liver and kidney function, blood sugar, blood coagulation hepatitis B/C, syphilis, AIDS).

  • Surgery
  • The surgery is performed in general anesthesia and takes about one hour in case of first-time patients and 1-3 hours for re-surgery. After inserting the implant during the operation, the operation bed is raised straight to evaluate the look, symmetry, and size. The operation by breast surgeon and cooperation of specialist anesthesiologist provides fast and accurate surgery, and patients can experience different surgery of MD Hospital by three-step pain restraint system and minimized scar by using special adhesive or tape for suture.
  • Post-surgery process
  • Patients can move somewhat about 4-5 hours after the surgery and leave the hospital on the day of surgery. (However, patients can choose to be hospitalized if they wish) After leaving the hospital, patients receive treatment for the second and third days, and come back to remove the stiches. When special adhesive or tape was used for suture, there is no need for stitch removal. For two weeks after the surgery, it is helpful for recovery to avoid alcohol or smoking. Recovery periods vary depending on individuals. In general, patients can do daily tasks after 3-4 days but it is safe to wait 4-7 days for work. You can take a shower after one week, but bathing in the bathtub must wait four weeks. You can also do mild exercise after one week such as walking, cycling, or mild stretching, but golf, swimming, yoga, and other exercises that require aggressive arm movement must wait four weeks.

  • For breast augmentation, post-surgery treatment is as important as the operation. First, after one week from the surgery, the treatment including message must begin. It can be uncomfortable and painful at first, but you will get used to it after 2 weeks.

(For texture type, only mechanic treatment is provided without requiring massage)
