Breast augmentation is one of the most popular and most frequently performed operations in the field of aesthetic medicine and plastic surgery today.

Mammoplasty means reshaping or modifying the appearance of the breasts. The contour of breasts is important from the point of perception of our figure.

Breast plastic surgery solves the problems of insufficient development of the mammary glands, severe asymmetry or deformation as a result of breastfeeding or sudden weight loss. Plastic surgery is the only true and effective method for correcting the volume and shape of the breast. A well-balanced, symmetrical bust in relation to the rest of our body increases our self-confidence. This is naturally not the most important thing in life; however, if the asymmetry of breasts starts having a negative impact on our life, the situation can be remedied by means of plastic surgery.

  • Congenital malformations of the breast;

  • Breast asymmetry;

  • Dissatisfaction with the shape and size of the chest;

What types of breast implants are available?

All implants differ in type of filler, size and shape - round or teardrop-shaped. Surgeons at the EMC clinic use implants from the best manufacturing companies, such as Mentor (Clovermed), Arion, Mghan (Allergan), who confirmed their endoprostheses with international quality certificates.

Breast augmentation with drop-shaped (or anatomical) implants is ideal for patients with initially small breast volume. Due to their shape, anatomical implants repeat the natural shape of the breast and look as natural as possible.

Spherical (round) endoprostheses are suitable for women with severe ptosis or breast asymmetry. The task of round implants in this case is to make the woman's breasts higher (raised) and voluminous. The most suitable option for implants is determined by the surgeon at a face-to-face consultation, based on the body structure, physiology and the desired patient outcome. The technology of computer 3D-modeling allows the patient and the doctor to evaluate the result before the operation.


What is the best placement for breast implants?

  • Subglandular placement puts the implant directly behind the mammary gland and in front of the muscle.

  • Subpectoral placement involves lodging the implant under the pectoralis major muscle.;

  • Submuscular placement puts the implant firmly behind the chest muscle wall.

The process of breast enlargement "from" and "to"

During a face-to-face consultation, the doctor will conduct an examination and explain all the features related to your age, condition and elasticity of the skin, shape and size of the chest. If desired, the patient and indications, along with breast augmentation, the doctor may recommend a breast lift.

After a face-to-face consultation with a surgeon, a medical examination is the second important condition for preparing for an operation. The examination includes blood, urine, sugar, ECG, as well as a mandatory consultation with an anesthetist. You can go through the entire list of necessary tests and a preoperative examination on site, in the EMC clinic.

For the period prescribed by the doctor, it will also be necessary to give up smoking and alcohol consumption. The surgeon prescribes more detailed recommendations individually.
