Breast enlargement is one of the most popular procedures within the plastic surgery portfolio. It is chosen by women of all age groups to help achieve their dream look. In our clinics, we have specialists in the field with over 20 years of practice who will personally advice you on how to approach your surgery and what kind of implants to choose.
Breast enlargement is for women, who are not satisfied with their breast size, have asymmetry problems, or dropping breasts. Women after breast enlargement become more self confident, and gain a new life perspective. The enlargement is done by inserting silicone implants in a way agreed with the surgeon prior to the operation.
Before the operation
The procedure is done under general anaesthesia with 1-2 days of hospitalization.
All pre-op checks are required including a baseline mammogram of the breasts
In patients older than 35 years old lung and hearth scan will also be required
No food or drink is to be consumed at least 8 hours before the surgery.
Breast enlargement is performed under general anaesthesia. A special implant is put under the mammary gland or under the pectoral muscle (if allowed by the anatomic built). This implant is of anatomical shape of the breast. The access is provided by about 5 cm long cut in the groove under the breast. The produced scar is very gentle and after surgical laser operation practically invisible.
Another possibility of how to insert the implant is under the nipple or from under the armpit. The surgeon suggests these procedures during the consultation before the operation.
Discomfort will occur in the first few days after surgery
Slightly raised temperature
You might experience pain in the area of the scars. This is quite common but an analgesic can ease it
You may experience temporary soreness, tightness, swelling and bruising as well as some discomfort in the incision area
Your breasts may be sensitive to stimulation for a few weeks
Very little bleeding and swelling (lasts for aproximately 2 weeks)
Drainage onto the steri-strips covering the incisions
During the healing process the scars can slightly change color. This should fade out during time
As with any surgery, there is a risk of thrombosis
After the operation
After the surgery, the whole chest is fixed by soft bandage. The patient wears a support bra for 6 weeks after the surgery and for 1-2 month no sport activities should be performed since the implants tend to move upwards. In the first week after the enlargement, bed rest is recommended. From the second week you can follow your everyday routine. Radiation or solarium is strictly prohibited for at least 2 months.
