Breast enlargement

The size of the female breasts has its own fashion. In the twenties of the last century the boyish, small, flat breasts used to be fashionable. This was the counteraction to the former dominal trend and put an end to the era of women with full breasts and figures. The aesthetical and erotic admiration for the full breasts is coming into prominence again.

The problem

The lack of the mammary glands, their atrophy, the unequal development of the bilateral glands can result in a ‘small breasts’ symptom causing psychic disturbances.Physical factors can also be the cause of small breasts in case of women who does not have a child, however, the atrophy of the bilateral glands due to hormonal effects after having a baby is also a frequent phenomenon.

The intervention

The cosmetic breast enlargement operation means the implantation of alloplastic materials (endoprosthesis). The process of implanting good quality implants with a CE sign has no alternative at the moment. The unjustified fears resulting from the implantation of silicone prostheses are dissolved by the consensus declaration of 28th June 1996 of the European Committe on Quality Assurance and Medical Devices in Plastic Surgery which in 9 articles summerizes what harmful effects a silicone implant does not have, based on several million follow-up examinations. The choice of the type and size of the endoprosthesis is to be discussed with the surgeon carrying out the operation.

During the operation the missing volume of the breast is supplied by the implant. This can be implanted under the muscles or between the muscles of the chest and the glands. The surgical incision can be made in the armpit, at the edge of the areola or transversely through the nipple, however, most often under the breasts.

The small surgical incision can be united with an inner cosmetic row of stitches inside the skin and this way only a barely visible scar remains in an optimal case. Occasionally, a suction pipe is inserted beside the prosthesis for one day to remove the tissue-fluids and blood. After the operation a pressing bandage holding the breasts has to be worn for a period specified by your surgeon. The operation can be carried out under local anaesthetic and in narcosis as well. After having a breast implantation it is recommended to spend one day at the hospital. The physician will tell the patient when she will be able to play sports again, for how long and which parts of the day she has to wear a bra and when she can wash the surgical area.
