Breast Augmentation

A Breast according to your Personal Wishes

A woman's breast shape, fullness and size can suffer as a result of pregnancy, weak connective tissue or significant weight loss. Breast augmentation surgery offers an ideal solution here.

During the procedure, a result according to your personal wishes can be achieved using different surgical techniques and a wide variety of breast implants. The ability to breastfeed is fully retained, and radiological control (mammography or MRT or ultrasound examination) is still possible. In the following sections we have summarized the most important information for you.

Breast Enlargement Options

Infraareolar breast enlargement (incision into the edge of the areola)
In this method of breast enlargement with implants, which we primarily use, the scar is concealed by the natural skin colour of the areola of the breasts, whereby the length of the incision is limited by the size of the areola of the breasts.

Inframammary breast augmentation (incision under the breast)
This method is suitable for almost any implant size and the implants can be easily and perfectly placed. As a possible disadvantage, heavy breast implants can cause the breast fold to shift.

Transaxillary breast augmentation (incision in the armpit)
This does not result in a scar on the chest, but rather inconspicuously in the armpit. This method is also suitable for larger implants, but placement of the implants is more complicated due to the access under the arm.

Breast enlargement with your own fat (lipofilling)
As an alternative to breast enlargement with silicone implants, we are happy to offer breast enlargement with your own fat. This is particularly useful if a breast enlargement of approx. one cup size is desired and excess fat, e.g. in the hip area, is available.


Placement of Implants

A distinction is made here between placing the breast implant behind the mammary gland (subglandular) and placing the breast implant under the pectoral muscle (submuscular).

  • preliminary medical examination by the general practitioner/internist

  • detailed consultation

  • discontinuation of anticoagulant medication, e.g., Aspirin, Thomapyrin or ThromboAss, at least one week before and one week after the operation

  • limitation of alcohol and nicotine

  • Unlike many other plastic surgery procedures, breast enlargements are carried out under general anesthesia or twilight sleep and in most cases including an overnight stay (Privatklinik Hochrum).

  • Operation time for breast enlargements: approx. 2 hours depending on the technique used: the implant is placed by the doctor either submuscularly, i.e. behind the pectoral muscle, or subglandularly, i.e. behind the mammary gland.

  • At the end of the operation, the patient receives a sports bra.

For the period of 6 weeks after breast enlargement, we recommend…

  • no sports

  • avoid sauna visits

  • avoid visiting the solarium; after recovery, SPF 50 is recommended to achieve the best possible scar formation

  • wearing a special/sports bra (non-wired)

  • avoid lifting heavy loads, especially above shoulder level

There is no need to pull threads because we generally use self-dissolving suture material.

The following side effects can occur after breast enlargement:

  • implant rupture

  • foreign body sensation (cold)

  • infections

  • slipping of the silicone implant

  • minor inequalities (chest left/right)

Capsular Fibrosis

  • When the connective tissue covering the implant in the body forms cicatricial thickenings, this is called capsular fibrosis. In such a case, which is very rare these days, the implant would have to be replaced.
