The wish to have breast augmentation or enlargement depends on the individual perception of a small breast or irritating asymmetry of the breast. The breast might also lose some of its volume and elasticity related to age, after losing weight, or pregnancy. Enlargement can generally take place at any age, however, the breast should be fully developed. Furthermore, planned pregnancies should be taken into consideration at the time of the operation as they can influence the aesthetic result permanently. The requested form, size, available implants, direction of incision and location of the implants is discussed with you during a thorough consultation.
We use high-quality silicone implants of best quality, bearing the EU mark of quality, with a textured surface to avoid capsular fibrosis and contracture.
Position of implants
The implant can be put behind or in front of the larger breast muscle, pectoral muscle. For very slim women we recommend the positioning behind the muscle in order to avoid the edges of the implant being seen. A more aesthetically pleasing result is achieved with limp breasts, as they are typical after pregnancies or related to age, when the implant is positioned in front of the breast muscle.
Breast augmentation can be combined with a fat transfer, so called lipo filling. This helps to hide the edges of the implants. This is very special technique, called Lipo-Implant-Augmentation.
Breast augmentation can either be done as a single procedure or combined with other cosmetic operations. If you want more information on this procedure please call us or contact us by e-mail.
