Breat augmentation - enlarging of the female breast
When is breast enlargement a viable option?
Breast enlargement is viable procedure in the following cases:
- Breasts haven’t developed as expected during or after puberty
- Assymetrical breasts
- Altered shape of size of breasts after childbirth, breastfeeding or weight gain
What happens before, during and after breast enlargement?
Before the procedure, a thorough, detailed and comprehensive consultation takes place, plans are discussed and the patient is supplied with all the information necessary. Next, a careful preoperative examination is performed.
The patient is made perfectly ready and prepared in order to ensure maximal safety for the procedure. (See the information on the consultation form.)
Breast enlargement is performed under so called intubatednarcosis, with the patient protected by antibiotics in every case.
A cavity for the implant is carefully planned before the procedure and formed according to the breast’s anatomical capacity. Implants are usually placed into this cavity through a tiny, hidden incision in the fold of skin under the breast. During a breast enlargement, the implant is placed either under the gland tissue, or partly under the muscle and partly under the gland tissue with the so-called dual-plane method. Sometimes implants can be placed under the fascia. The correct method is chosen after a “pinch test.”
The size of the breast implant is defined by its width and length in profile. The former depends on the chest’s individual anatomy, while the latter can be chosen according to the size of the future cleavage requested by the patient herself.
All up-to-date implants used in the procedure are subjected to continuous professional control and strict safety tests.

EQUAM - The European and International Committee for Quality Assurance, Medical Technologies and Devices in Plastic Surgery
EQUAM is a European and international committee, responsible for the quality control of tools and methods used in plastic surgery, and its main goal is to guarantee their safe use and the safets of patients.
6th Consensus Declaration of EQUAM, 26 June 2004
“The purpose of breast implant surgery is to improve the mental and physical condition of the patient. The breast implants should be chosen on the basis of those best fitting and most suited to the individual patient.
A. Silicone gel continues to be widely used for implants. No better alternative material has become available.
B. Additional medical studies have not demonstrated any association between silicone-gel filled breast implants and traditional auto-immune or connective tissue diseases, cancer or any other malignant disease.
C. Silicone-gel filled breast implants do not adversely affect pregnancy, fetal development, breast feeding or the health of breast-fed children.
D. No definite period of time has yet been defined for the longevity of breast implants; routine replacement of implants is therefore not mandatory. It is a misconception that one third of implants rupture ten years after the surgery!”
Jan Poell, President of EQUAM 2005 – 04 – 15
