Breast Enlargement

The most common internationally is the use of silicon implants. Doctor and patient select the size and type of the implants before the operation. Only EU checked implants are used from the market leaders: Mc–ghan (www.collagen.com), PIP (www.implantspip.com), Eurosilicone (www.tapmed.com) and www.polytechsilimed.de). The patient is given a check up and thoroughly informed the day before the operation.

The central issues of this consultation are the risks, techniques, incisions and aims.

Preparation - Under 40s: blood analysis (Family GP)
- Over 40s: in depth blood analysis, cardiogram (Family GP or on location). Also mammogram where required.
These tests can also be carried out on location if needed.
Type of anesthetic General Anesthetic
Operation duration 1 – 2 Hours
Incisions Incision 4 – 5 cm along the fold of the breast, a curved incision that partly borders the nipple (acromastium), or armpit: incision 4 – 5 cm.
Placement of the implants Depending upon the shape and composition of the breast, the implant is placed on or below the breast muscle. In the case of relative little breast tissue, the implants are more likely to be positioned below the muscle so that the implant itself does not show.
Operation aims Depending upon the shape and composition of the breast, the implant is placed on or below the breast muscle
Clinic residence 1 – 2 Days
Post- operation Showering or bathing is possible after the removal of the stitches. Gymnastics or swimming is possible approx 6 weeks after the operation.
After treatment and controls Self- dissolving stitches are used. The stitches do not have to be taken out after the operation. The healing progress of the wound should however be checked after 10- 12 days by a Doctor you trust. In order to guard against capsular contracture, different methods are used (massaging the breasts, calming through plasters or stabilizing bras as required). You should take the control examinations seriously in order to recognize a build up at an early stage.
Risks / Dangers/
Capsular Contraction
The probability of capsular contraction lies at around 5%. This includes various stages however. A minor capsular contraction does not require correction. If changes in the breasts are observed then the surgeon or gynecologist should be informed in a timely manner. Further stiffening can be avoided without an operation. In 1% of cases an exchange or removal of the implants is necessary because of capsular contraction. These complications have become less common due to the texturing of rough edged implant surfaces.

As is the case with any operation, there is small risk of infection or blood clotting. In order to prevent this you will be given blood thinning drugs and antibiotics.

Breast cancer risk? Studies in different countries document that there is no link between the use of breast implants and the occurrence of breast cancer. Statistics show that women with breast implants detect breast cancer at an earlier stage than those without. This is likely to be due to the raised awareness or sensitization as there is likely to be more frequent testing.
Breast Feeding The ability to breast-feed is not affected by a breast enlargement .
Implant Durability At least 10-15 years. If the body accepts the implants well then there may be no necessity to replace them at all according to many specialist Doctors. Yearly check ups are required.
Lifting and enlargement? In the case of small sagging breasts, a modeling operation is additionally required. The skin covering is reduced before the implants are inserted. The nipples are put back in their original form. Please read the information on breast- lifting.
