Breast Enlargement

Duration of the procedure:

1 –1,5 hours

Type of anaesthesia:

general anaesthetic

Outpatient treatment

with medical supervision during the first night

Indication

Under-developed, deformed, or asymmetrical breasts are often congenital and cause many women considerable suffering due to their appearance and their lack of feminine proportions.

Sagging breasts caused by pregnancy, nursing or weight loss can also be improved by means of silicone implants in combination with breast lifting.

In case of breast tissue removal because of diseases (e.g. cancer), reconstruction with an implant can create a breast shape which again matches the healthy one on the other side.

Implants

The most suitable implant in terms of filling, shape and size is determined before the operation in a personal consultation which includes a demonstration.

We exclusively use implants of the highest quality that bear all of the required quality seals.

Operation

Before the operation, patient and doctor plan the optimal size of the breasts according to the patient’s wishes, taking into consideration the original shape and size of the breasts.

Various approaches – insertion through the inframammary fold below the breasts or at the areola – reduce scarring to a minimum. Depending on the thickness of the subcutaneous tissue, the implant is inserted in a pocket under the breast gland or, in the case of very slim patients, under the pectoral muscle, then positioned and secured.

For patients with extremely saggy breast tissue a breast lift should be performed as well.

After the operation

  • Sutures are removed after 2 weeks
  • Wear a bandage (‘Stuttgarter Gürtel’) for at least 2 weeks
  • Wear a support bra for 3 months
  • Post-surgical wound care (with scar massage und possibly self-adhesive silicone pads) begins after suture removal
  • Avoid physical strain (especially raising your arms) for 3 weeks
  • Avoid sports involving the use of your arms for 3 months

Alternatives

For patients who want a breast enlargement without the use of a silicone implant, we offer lipofilling of the breasts. In this procedure, the patient's own expendable body fat is harvested and transferred to their breasts. This method can be supported by means of an external vacuum pump system worn mainly at night for 3 to 6 weeks before the fat transfer. The results are excellent and long-lasting. A further alternative for breast enlargement without implants involves augmentation with a specially formulated hyaluronic acid.
