Breast augmentation (enlargement)

Women’s breasts have been admired since ancient times. Prehistoric Venus figurines, paintings in the palace of Knossos, classical sculpture, Renaissance paintings, and even modern photography by Helmut Newton – throughout the ages there has been no greater symbol of the female body than perfect natural breasts.
MAKE AN APPOINTMENT
Are you unhappy with the “small breasts” nature gave you? Have your breasts lost volume due to pregnancy or breastfeeding, yet you are one of the lucky women whose breasts still retain nearly the ideal shape? Do you believe that increasing the volume of your breasts in proportion to your body would give you the figure you desire? Have you always wished to have big breast? Then the information below is meant for you.

BRIEF INFORMATION

We only use implants with a proven track record
Breast augmentation can be performed along with correcting the shape of the breast (lift)

WHAT IS BREAST AUGMENTATION?

Breast enlargement is one of the most commonly requested operations in aesthetic surgery. It aims to change the volume of the breasts, either with breast implants or (less often) with the patient’s own fat (fat grafting, lipofilling). In some cases the two methods are combined and we perform what is called a composite breast augmentation. The implant can be placed underneath the mammary gland (subglandular placement). The other option is to place the implant mostly under the pectoral muscle, which covers the upper part to a greater or lesser degree. Breast augmentation can be performed along with correcting the shape of the breast (lift). All breast implants used in the EU are subject to the strict control and approval process of the relevant regulatory authority. Our clinic uses a few trusted brands (Mentor, Polytech, Motiva) depending on the surgeon’s preference.

WHAT THIS PROCEDURE WILL GIVE YOU:

- proportional, beautiful breasts
- a full décolletage and greater self-confidence
- the feeling of being more yourself

BREAST AUGMENTATION IN PRAGUE

ABClinic Art & Beauty provides breast augmentation services to clients from outside the Czech Republic as well. Our clinic staff speak fluent German, English, Russian and French. The first consultation can be held over the phone or online. The doctor will listen to your wishes, expectations and preferences as to future breast size, and then will propose an optimal type of breast augmentation, size and shape of the implants, as well as placement and incision method. If you decide to have your breast augmentation in Prague, you can schedule an operation date. You need a personal consultation before every aesthetic operation, but for breast augmentation especially so. Perhaps no other operation in aesthetic surgery engenders so much discussion, myths and misinformation. At the consultation on the day before the operation, the surgeon will again assess the ideal shape, size, profile, material, implant brand, placement and incision method. As breast augmentation is performed under general anesthesia, you will need to have a pre-operation examination at our clinic or with your GP. If you wish, you can have this examination here at ABClinic Art & Beauty.

Implant shape

The main decision here is whether to use round or anatomical (tear-drop) implants. Round implants come in a circle shape with the highest point above the center, so the breast augmentation will be equally and regularly distributed. Anatomical (tear-drop) implants have their highest point below the center, giving greater volume in the lower half and less volume in the top half.

Implant size

When deciding on size, it is important to consider not just volume, but volume relative to the base, meaning also the profile or height of the implants. Different profiles can give widely different volumes even at the same implant diameter. For this reason volume is the simplest, yet also the least informative, factor in making the decision.

Implant material

Silicone is the most widely known and used implant material. The implant shell is made of reinforced silicone and filled with silicone gel of varying density (cohesivity). Cohesivity plays an important role, so the surgeon will consider whether a softer or harder implant would be the best fit for you. Some surgeons prefer micropolyurethane implants, which are another available option.

Implant placement

The implant can be placed underneath the mammary gland (subglandular placement). The other option is to place the implant mostly under the pectoral muscle, which covers the upper part to a greater or lesser degree. The choice to place the implant under the gland or muscle is subject to certain medical indications. Your individual anatomy and chosen type of implant (shape, volume, profile) will determine the best placement for your implants.

Incision options

The underarm incision is less common today than it once was, when implants were typically saline-filled. As silicone breast implants have become more widespread, the inframammary incision (in the crease of the breast) and periareolar incision (on the bottom half of the areola) have come to prevail.

With an inframammary incision, ideally the scar will be invisible under the bra even with your arms raised. This type of incision allows good access for the surgeon to place the implant under the mammary gland or under the muscle. Possible drawbacks include poor visibility if an implant needs to be replaced and persistence of the scar if the patient has a breast lift in the future. Special “insertion sleeves” can be used to make the already short scar even shorter.

Periareolar access places the incision on the lower half of the darker skin of the areola and lighter skin of the breast. This is considered the least visible scar from an aesthetic standpoint. Limiting factors are the diameter of the areola and chosen implant size. Implants can usually be replaced through the same incision. Another advantage is that the scar can be removed in a future breast lift.

Simultaneous breast augmentation and lift

Breast augmentation can be performed along with correcting the shape of the breast (lift).

Implant safety

All breast implants used in the EU are subject to the strict control and approval process of the relevant regulatory authority. This ensures maximum safety while maintaining a wide spectrum of shapes and volumes. We choose the implant to best fit each client’s individual anatomy. Our clinic uses a few trusted brands (Mentor, Polytech, Motiva) depending on the surgeon’s preference.

OPERATION

Depending on the complexity of the case, this operation typically takes under an hour. The surgeon makes the incision in the chosen location and prepares the way under the gland or muscle. After carefully controlling the bleeding and putting drains in place, the surgeon uses the sizer to check the chosen shape and size of the implants one last time, inserts the implants, and closes the incision with sutures. The area is covered with a sterile dressing and compression bandage.

BREAST AUGMENTATION RECOVERY - AFTER THE OPERATION

This operation requires a brief in-patient stay at our clinic. Afterwards you will need to be mostly on bed rest for 10 to 14 days, so make sure to arrange for time off work. For optimal results you should wear the special post-operation bra for five to six weeks. You can start exercising again (depending on the implant placement and shape) after three to four weeks.
You will need to wear a high-quality compression bra after the operation. We consider the best post-surgical compression garments to be those by the France-based MEDICAL-Z, available for purchase at our clinic or e-shop. The length of time to wear the compression garment depends on the scope and type of procedure as well as the quality of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. This procedure usually requires four to six or up to eight weeks in the compression garment. It is a good idea to wear a special bra during physical exertion, ideally one from the Z-BRA line.

PRICE

The final price of the operation will be set after a personal consultation with a doctor at our clinic. The price of breast augmentation depends on the implant chosen as well as the compression bra, anesthesia, hospitalization time, etc. The prices given in our price list are for the purposes of orientation only.

POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS

Every medical procedure involves a certain amount of risk. While your surgeon and our clinic’s surgical team will do everything in their power to ensure no complications arise, certain adverse effects cannot be ruled out entirely. Swelling and bruising is temporary and quite normal in the first few days after the procedure.
