Breast enlargement

A poorly developed breast often has an impact on the entire self, because as soon as self-esteem is attacked, this is also reflected in gestures, facial expressions and mood. The reasons for this are different. For example, if the glandular tissue shrinks significantly after pregnancy, an undesirable breast shape can result. It is not uncommon for people to “disappear” This causes the cleavage, which is usually not just an aesthetic problem. The affected women very often want the breasts they had before pregnancy back.


“Nature also needs help sometimes.”

Breast enlargement

The patients constantly have the feeling that they have to conceal something and want their breasts to be back to their original state. Others, on the other hand, suffer from breasts that are too small.

Such problems can be optimally solved with breast enlargement: using an implant, the shape and size of the breast can be adjusted to your requirements become. The ability to breastfeed is retained and radiological checks are of course still possible.

The procedure is carried out under general anesthesia. A hospital stay of 2 days is to be expected. During breast augmentation, the implant is placed either under the mammary gland or under the pectoral muscle through a small incision in the submammary fold under the breast, on the edge of the nipple or in the armpit. Modern breast implants are made of cohesive silicone gel, which reduces the risk of “leakage” makes impossible. In addition, these implants are coated in such a way that the most commonly feared complication, capsular fibrosis, is significantly reduced.

The breast implant is surrounded by a fine connective tissue cover (capsule) in the body. Very rarely, a cicatricial thickening of this covering leads to capsular fibrosis. Infections, secondary bleeding and sensory disturbances in the nipple area are possible.
