When is it justified?
Today breast enlargement is considered a routine surgery, which is underlined by the fact how its renown has changed during the past decade: earlier nobody admitted to having an augmentation willingly, whereas these days it is more and more accepted to say that you would feel more comfortable in your own skin with larger breasts. Another reason women might choose to have this intervention is to correct their sagging or asymmetric breasts. Our plastic surgeon examines you during a preliminary consultation and shows you his reference works to illustrate the expected best outcome. The implant materials used are high-quality German and Brazilian brands with a lifetime warranty.
Before the surgery, you have to undergo a complete and throughout screening. To make the process more comfortable for you, we perform all the necessary screenings at our Institute in the same place and time. Besides laboratory tests, our surgeon might recommend you to have an ECG examination and an ultrasound screening. You also have to have a consultation with the anesthesiologist before the surgery. Your plastic surgeon will also inform you about the advised temporary adjustments in your lifestyle to speed up your recovery.
The course of the intervention
The surgery is performed in anesthesia. First, a few centimetre wide incision is made underneath the breast then the implant is inserted through these, under the glands or muscles. The absorbable sutures we use will spare you the unpleasantness of having the stitches removed. The complete intervention takes 1 hour.
Recovery and aftercare
Following the intervention you spend one night in our hospital where you can relax in a calm and exclusive environment. The next morning our plastic surgeon puts waterproof bandages over your scars, so you do not have to worry about them getting wet when you take a shower. You have to wear the special bra we provide for 8 weeks. It is important to avoid any strenuous physical activity for the first two weeks and even after this period, return to your previous lifestyle gradually, in small steps. However, light exercise is allowed after three weeks. It is not recommended to visit a tanning salon or sauna for 2 months. Your control examinations will be scheduled for the 7th and 14th days, then during weeks 6 and 12 after your surgery. Visible scars will disappear in 6 months, while the skin-deep ones will completely heal in 2 years.
The risk of complications is very low, but if there is any, it can only be wound infection, a temporary loss of feeling in the nipples or the slight asymmetry of the two breasts.
