Breast augmentation with implants

Breasts are one of the most intimate areas of a woman’s body. It is therefore natural that breasts express femininity and sexuality. Over the years, even the shape of a beautiful breast changes: firmness decreases, and breasts sag and flatten. This often happens not only to older women but also to mothers who have breastfed. The shape, size and appearance of the breasts are determined by many factors, the most important of which are age, heredity, weight changes, pregnancy, physical activity, and congenital diseases.

Breast augmentation is performed when a woman wants larger breasts, to regain her pre-pregnancy breast size, or to reduce pronounced asymmetry between breasts of different sizes. Unfortunately, however, breast augmentation does not lift very saggy breasts. In the case of more pronounced breast sagging, another procedure is needed – breast lift and breast augmentation with implants.

Breast augmentation with implants is a surgery in which an implant of a chosen size, shape and texture is inserted into a “pocket” in the breast tissue formed by the surgeon. Implants are filled with silicone gel. They can be circular or drop-shaped (‘anatomical’).

Breast augmentation with implants can be performed in different ways. The choice depends on the patient’s preference, anthropometric data and the plastic surgeon’s recommendations during the consultation.

During your consultation, you will discuss the main aspects of breast augmentation with your plastic surgeon:

  • The location of the surgical incision. There are three ways to place an implant:
    • under the breast (post-breast line),
    • in the nipple areola
    • armpit.
  • The shape and size of breast implants. Implants are selected based on the woman’s expectations and preferences, the shape of the breast and the individual dimensions of the breast
  • Implant pocket location:
    • Under the pectoralis major muscle
    • Partially under the muscle (dual plan), where the upper part of the implant is “hidden” under the muscle and the lower part remains under the gland.
    • Under the mammary gland (between the mammary gland and pectoral muscles)

How is breast augmentation surgery performed?

Breast augmentation surgery is relatively simple and can be performed in a relatively short period of time – it takes about a couple of hours, and sometimes even less. The operation is performed under general anaesthesia. After breast augmentation surgery, you can return to normal life quite quickly, but it is important to follow a few of the doctor’s instructions, such as limiting physical activity and arm movements and wearing a special bra for a few weeks.

What is important to pay attention to after surgery?

  • The swelling in the breasts persists for two to three weeks.
  • The surgical incisions need to be re-tied every 2-3 days.
  • The sutures are removed 10-12 days after surgery.
  • You should not raise your arms above your head for the first few weeks after surgery, as the implants may move out of place.
  • A special bra must be worn for 8 weeks after surgery (22-23 hours a day).
  • Avoid strenuous physical activity and sport for 2-3 months.
  • After a few days, you can start working without making very strenuous movements or moving your arms.
