Who Is It For?
Women decide for a breast enlargement for many reasons such as discontent with their natural size or form, breast asymmetry or mammary gland decrease following breastfeeding. Given the fact that the breast size and shape changes constantly during a woman’s life and, what’s more, every woman has a different idea of their ideal looks, it is always absolutely necessary to get a high quality individual consultation during which the surgeon and the client decide for suitable implants (while taking into consideration their type, shape and size), ideal operating procedure and the apt place to introduce the implants, either under the mammary gland or muscle. Breast enlargement cosmetic surgery is one of the most common procedures performed annually around the world.
How Is It Done?
A breast enhancement operation involves surgically inserting breast implants behind the natural breast tissues to increase the size of the breasts. Breast enlargement procedures are performed to create better symmetry and make the breasts larger, firmer and fuller.
During the consultation the client together with the surgeon decide whether the incision is made on the lower border of the areolae, in the armpit or in the under-breast fold. Then a silicone implant is placed under the mammary gland or muscle. We only work with the highest quality implants. During suturing non-absorbable or absorbable materials can be used. In the case of non-absorbable materials, the sutures must be extracted within two or three weeks after the operation, while absorbable sutures dissolve in the body on their own and their advantage is also the fact that the scar is finer.
The operation is performed under general anaesthetic and takes one to two hours.
Breast augmentation procedure requires one overnight stay at the clinic and a two-week rest period. A post-operative check-up is done at the clinic on the third to fifth day after leaving it. Then special compressive bra is worn – non-stop for two months and later only when exercising, and the client starts doing pressure massages. It is not advisable to sleep on the side and also all movements involving lifting arms up should be avoided.
In the first three to four months after the operation, it is not recommended to go to a swimming pool as there is a high risk of acquiring infection. Restrict excessive use of arms for at least 5-7 days. No lifting above the head for two weeks.
Back To Normal
Following uneventful recovery, it is normally possible to return to work and resume customary activities within two weeks of the operation. Normal physical activity, including easy exercise, can be resumed within four weeks; strenuous exercise not until at least six weeks after the surgery.
The resulting shape and size of the breasts can be considered final only after two to three months.
Some clients may find out that the implant insertion alone cannot solve their problems with breast size and particularly their shape; in these cases it is recommended to combine augmentation with breast uplift in order to achieve the ideal result.
