Breast augmentation

For more self-esteem

Breast augmentation is a plastic surgery term for the breast implant used to increase the size, change the shape and alter the texture of the breasts.

Many women feel that their size of their breasts diminish their self-esteem and their femininity. Therefore, breast augmentation is often associated with the wish to increase their subjective well-being.

Modern operation techniques, along with high-quality implants, offer the patient a very reliable and natural looking results.

Breast size is often congenital underdevelopment or non-development of the breasts. Similarly, pregnancies, breast-feeding and weight loss can cause the breast volume to shrink too.
Breast augmentation can be performed at any age once the body has stopped growing. As a rule, sensation and the ability to breast-feed are retained after breast augmentation. 

For today's breast augmentation procedures, implants with a silicone capsule filled with various materials such as silicone gel, physiological saline (salt) solution or hydrogel are used. The use of a rough (textured) surface considerably reduces the risk of hardening of the implant capsule. Silicone gel implants are considered today to be tolerated best. They most closely imitate the feel of a natural breast and are available in almost every shape and size.

To date, none of the numerous international scientific studies conducted has proven any connection between silicone gel implants and the onset of cancer, rheumatism or autoimmune diseases.

Small skin incisions are needed to insert the implants, which, depending on the technique used, are made either in the armpit, the inframammary fold (under the breast) or around the edge of the areola (nipple). When the wound heals the scars should remain virtually invisible. The cavity needed to hold the implant is formed between the mammary gland and the chest muscle or behind the chest muscle itself.

Immediately after the operation, an elastic dressing is applied to the chest. The stitches are removed about 10 days after the procedure. For about 4 weeks, the patient should wear a special bra day and night that provides firm support and must avoid any form of strenuous physical activity.
