The desire for breast augmentation always is a very individual one including enlarging the breasts to make the body more proportional or reshaping and enlarging breasts that have lost their silhouette due to breast feeding.
Others want more balanced breasts, because of a difference in size or shape. For the best natural shape today we use cohesive gel implants with a textured surface in the submuscular placement. This position helps to reduce the chance of scar tissue hardening around the implant. Possible disadvantages of this placement could be a longer surgery or recovery period compared to the subglandular (prepectoral) placement.
The operation is normally performed using one of 3 incision sites
very popular und safe, concealing the incision in the skinfold below the breast.
in the lower circumference of the areola, milk ducts have to be cut.
from the axilla.
The recovery period after the operation normally is one week, the patient should be one night under our supervision. Pain is treatet by adequate pain medication.
Possible complications can be infection (low incidene, we give a perioperative antibiotic prophylaxis) or bleeding/ hematoma (within the first hours). That is why we prefer to have the patient at the least one night under our control.
according to german law the presentation of before and after photos in the internet is not allowed since 2005.
Following your physician's instructions is key to the success of your surgery. It is important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, swelling, abrasion or motion during the time of healing. Dr. Michel will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself. Additionally it is of major importance to comply with the rules of the follow up intervals.
Costs of your operation
As aesthetic and reconstructive surgery is always a very individual procedure the costs can vary widely according to the extent of the operation. A concrete price note can be given with the first appointment.
If financing is desired the best is to contact your bank. German institutions financing beauty procedures might be available too.
