Revolutionary Breast Augmentation Procedure ‘PEBAM,’ Offered by Sayeg Plastic Surgery Center, Drastically Reduces Scarring
Minimally Invasive Procedure Requires Less Than 1 Centimeter Incision
Sept. 7, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) — Dr. Ayoub Sayeg, announced his new cutting-edge procedure which will redefine the future of breast implant surgery. The procedure known as PEBAM is patent pending and is an acronym, which stands for Percutaneous, Endoscopic, Bilateral, Augmentation, Mammaplasty.
In a move that revolutionizes breast implant surgery, Dr. Sayeg has merged endoscopy and minimally invasive surgery to redefine the entire procedure, leaving the patient with virtually minimal scars. The procedure involves making a mini-incision and creating and molding a pocket, into which he inserts a deflated saline breast implant. The desired amount of saline is inflated into the implant through tiny tubes.
After the filling is complete and the tubes removed, Dr. Sayeg closes the incision, which is done with an absorbable suture. Following closure of the incision, drains are not needed, and healing progresses quickly. The resultant scar is normally less than one centimeter in length, which heals very well, and with the additional therapy of a silicone-based covering, is virtually unnoticeable.
Of particular note with this surgery are (1) the incisions are one-third of an inch, not the usual three centimeters (more than one inch); (2) the smaller the incision, the quicker the healing and the less the tension; (3) placement of the incision under the breast or in the axilla instead of through the belly button allows a smaller scar in less visible positions on the body; and (4) placement of the saline implant under the muscle, allowing the most optimal cosmetic effect.
“With PEBAM, making a tiny incision 1 centimeter in length and placing the implant under the breast muscle, a patient can now receive breast implants with minimal scarring,” said Dr. Ayoub Sayeg.
