Macrolane is a hyaluronic acid , of the same kind that have been used for the last 15 years as a filler for wrinkles in the face. The product is produced in a clean, chemical fermentation process and has no risk of causing allergies or a foreign body reaction. A major part of the skin is made up of hyaluronic acid. It does break down over time in the body to be eliminated out of the body as water and carbon dioxide. This means that over time the substance will disappear and for a continuous effect and result, the injection needs to be repeated every two years. A treatment of this kind is suitable for patients, who donít want a permanent implant and whose expectations of enlargement is moderate or maybe only want to improve the shape of the breasts.
The Macrolane treatment can be done in local anesthesia with sedation, and the patient may leave the clinic after a few hours of observation.
Normal physical activity can be resumed in a week.
