Breast augmentation

Starting from


Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure used to increase the size and fullness of the breasts to achieve the desired shape and body proportions. This procedure involves the insertion of implants or fat transfer into the breasts to enhance their volume and contour.




Candidates for breast augmentation typically include women with small or underdeveloped breasts, or those whose breasts have lost volume and fullness due to breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging. This procedure can be beneficial for women seeking to increase breast size and achieve a symmetrical and balanced body appearance.


Before breast augmentation, patients will consult with a surgeon to understand the goals of the procedure and potential outcomes. Preoperative preparation may involve medical examinations and evaluations to ensure safety during the surgery.


During breast augmentation, the surgeon will insert implants or use the patient's own fat to increase breast volume. The goal is to achieve a natural and proportional appearance of the breasts that complements the patient's body.


The results of breast augmentation typically include an increase in breast size and fullness, improvement in body symmetry and proportions, and increased self-confidence for patients.


After breast augmentation, it is important to follow the surgeon's instructions to reduce the risk of complications and achieve successful recovery. Regular visits to the surgeon for progress monitoring and proper wound care are also important for achieving optimal results.

How is breast augmentation surgery performed?

Breast augmentation surgery usually lasts about two to three hours and is performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, an incision is made under the breast in the natural fold of the breast or around the lower edge of the nipple. Implants filled with silicone gel are placed under the breast tissue or under the muscle, and most often partially under the gland and partially under the muscle, depending on what size or shape is desired.

Who is the best candidate for breast augmentation?

Women opt for breast augmentation to improve their appearance in a way that helps boost self-confidence or reduce self-criticism. The most common reasons are; • Breasts did not develop to the desired size after puberty. • Larger breasts achieve balance in relation to a stronger/more developed lower part of the body and give the appearance of an hourglass. • Breasts are pointed, flat or of some other shape that does not suit the patient. • Breast reduction after weight loss or pregnancy/breastfeeding. • Decreased strength due to physical changes such as aging. • Breast asymmetry in terms of size or shape. • Breast reconstruction after preventive removal in order to prevent the occurrence of cancer.

How long does recovery take after the procedure?

The recovery time required after breast augmentation depends on the procedure performed and on the patient. Most of the patients need help during the first and second day, after that they can usually take care of themselves, but there is a possibility that they need help taking care of smaller children. Patients can function normally on the second day after the procedure, but it depends on the person and the condition.

Which size is best for me?

That is one of the most important questions. We always try to satisfy the wishes of the patients regarding the size if it is within achievable limits. Breast beauty is not determined by size, but by nipple position, tissue tension and fullness in all directions. At a clinic, we offer the possibility of consultations with the VECTRA 3D device, which allows you to display 3D simulations of how they might look after the procedure. The high resolution of the recording ensures a realistic display down to the smallest details, and the final result will be very similar to the simulation that we create together with the patient. In breast surgery, the simulations are based on real implants that we use during the procedure, and which are currently the highest quality implants on the market. VECTRA 3D provides the patient with certainty about the result of the procedure, and for us it is a great indicator of what the patient wants.

What are the possible complications?

Any surgical procedure carries certain risks, such as the risks of anaesthesia, infection, bleeding and swelling. These complications occur rarely and can usually be avoided. At a clinic, we have the most modern anaesthesia equipment, which drastically reduces the risk of the operation itself. Thousands of women perform breast augmentation every year successfully and are very satisfied with the results. Our team takes all possible protective measures to minimize any risk. However, very often the responsibility for avoiding risk lies with you. dr. During the consultation, doctor will explain the risks of the operation in detail.

Breast augmentation can affect breastfeeding, especially if the implants are placed beneath the glandular tissue. It is important to discuss your plans for breastfeeding with the surgeon to assess the options and choose the best approach for your goals.

How long do the results of breast augmentation last?

The results of breast augmentation can be long-lasting, but it is not possible to guarantee that they will last forever. Natural aging processes, changes in body weight, and other factors can impact the appearance of the breasts over time. Regularly following the surgeon's recommendations and maintaining a healthy body weight can help preserve the achieved results.

How often do I need to replace the implants after breast augmentation?

It is common for implants to be replaced after approximately 10-15 years. However, this can vary depending on individual factors and achieved results. It is important to regularly follow the surgeon's advice and schedule periodic check-ups to timely detect any changes or the need for implant replacement.
