Breast augmentation

Most often, breast augmentation surgery is performed to increase small breasts or to fight the loss of breast volume after breastfeeding. For the final effect to look natural, the size and shape of breast implants must be chosen carefully, in accordance with the natural frame of Your chest. Breast augmentation surgery helps women gain confidence and boosts their self-esteem. Results desired by patients may vary depending on their individual preferences.

To accommodate every patient, KCM Clinic hospital offers several types of breast implants, available in multiple shapes and sizes. Each of them is of the best quality. Those are:

  • Mentor round implants,
  • Mentor teardrop implants,
  • Polytech B-Lite implants.

MENTOR round implants filled with silicone

Mentor implants are produced by the renowned company Johnson & Johnson. They are filled with the best quality cohesive silicone gel. Before Your breast augmentation surgery, You might be wondering if You should choose round or teardrop implants. Both of them have certain advantages. The shape of breast implants should be chosen based on the amount of Your natural chest area fat tissue and Your desired results. Round Mentor implants provide You with a full cleavage and a voluminous upper breast.MENTOR teardrop implants filled with silicone

When it comes to selecting the type and size of breast implants, You should consult a doctor about Your expectations. The surgeon will examine the natural shape of Your body and advise You on the best implants for You individually. Depending on Your preferences, You can choose round or teardrop implants. Mentor teardrop implants are also referred to as anatomical breast implants. In most patients, those implants look the most natural, providing the breasts with a sloped shape and a fuller bottom.

Polytech B-Lite implants

Breast augmentation surgery may help You feel better in Your own body. It is performed by experienced surgeons and with the use of top-quality materials. Its results in enhancing the shape of Your breasts are permanent. There are, however, some dangers of breast augmentation surgery, especially when You decide to use large implants. The increased bust can be quite heavy, which sometimes causes premature sagging breasts. A solution for this problem is choosing innovative Polytech B-Lite implants that are up to 30% lighter than regular implants of the same size.

Polytech B-Lite implants reduce the strain on the breasts, even if You choose a large model. They help You retain the natural, attractive shape of Your bust and provide You with freedom of movement. The implants are filled with B-Lite gel, which is a combination of medical silicone and microspheres — minuscule spherical particles that are empty on the inside. B-Lite implants have an excellent safety profile, and they offer a significantly lighter weight compared to more traditional breast implants while maintaining a natural appearance.

Breast implant replacement with capsulotomy using MENTOR round implants or MENTOR teardrop implants

In some cases, breast implants might have to be replaced. Contrary to popular belief, it is not compulsory to replace them every ten years. There are several reasons for replacing breasts implants. If You have breast implants, but You are not satisfied with their shape or size, You can exchange them for a different model. Breast implants might also have to be replaced due to side effects of breast augmentation surgery, such as:

  • Breast implant rupture,
  • Capsular contracture.

The danger of implant rupture increases after ten years since breast augmentation surgery. It often changes the appearance of the breast and the way it feels. Capsular contracture may happen in a few months following the operation, and it is an incident of the body rejecting the implants. Since the implant is a foreign body, scar tissue forms around it. In the case of capsular contracture, the scar tissue becomes too thick, so the implant feels firm and sometimes causes pain.

Capsular contracture is treated by making incisions in the scar tissue. It allows it to form again properly. This procedure is called a capsulotomy. It is recommended to remove the implant that caused capsular contracture and replace it with a safe breast implant, such as a Mentor implant. A Mentor round implant provides You with a full cleavage and a lot of volume in the upper breast, while a Mentor teardrop implant has an anatomical shape that resembles a real breast. The teardrop-shaped implant offers You a voluminous lower breast and a sloped silhouette of the bust.

    Breast implant enlargement – augmentation, mammoplasty

    Breast augmentation surgery is performed under general anesthesia. The augmentation procedure lasts for 1-2 hours. The exact course of the procedure depends on the individual needs and health of the patient. It is tailored to the patient during medical consultation.

    Not every plastic surgeon is authorized to perform breast surgery. This should be borne in mind when making decisions about undergoing breast surgery. You should also pay attention to the clinic, in particular the conditions, equipment and medical team. Quality and safety are paramount. Before consulting, read the consent to the procedure to discuss any ambiguities related to the procedure. Patients qualified for surgery come to the clinic in the morning on the day of surgery. You should be fasting, without food or drink. Remember to take the test results and medicines that you take permanently. Most often, it is recommended to perform a set of about 15 screening tests, such as morphology, blood clotting and sugar levels, but the plastic surgeon will adjust individually which tests should be performed.

    After surgery, the patient should stay in the hospital for 1-2 days. After returning home, it is necessary to wear a special surgical bra for about seven weeks. You should not carry weights and do intense physical exercises for a period of about 8 weeks. Avoid sunlight for six months. The full recovery period can take up to a year.

    For safety reasons, the operation plan is determined individually between the patient and the surgeon during the pre-surgery consultation. Goals and expectations must go hand in hand with real possibilities and safety at the highest level.

    How should I choose the right size and type of implant?

    During the pre-procedure consultation, the right type and size of the breast implant is adjusted. It is important to best present your goals and expectations, for example in the form of a photo. You can also bring a flexible sports bra to try on different implants and decide which implants are the most suitable.


    How will you help me choose the right size?

    The right implant size is extremely important because too small implants can be associated with patient dissatisfaction after surgery. On the other hand, too large breast implants can have a negative effect on our health and cause numerous complications after surgery. To avoid this, shoulder width, chest height and chest width are measured during the consultation. Thanks to this, it is possible to choose implants that will match the patient’s figure, meet the patient’s expectations, but above all reduce the risk of complications and increase the level of safety.


    Do breast implants need replacing?

    If the capsule is leaking or contracting (hardening around the implant), the implants may need to be replaced. This is decided by the surgeon during medical consultation.

    Is breastfeeding safe after breast augmentation?

    Yes. Studies show that breastfeeding a baby after implants does not pose a risk to the health of the baby or mother. They also showed that in mother’s milk bought in the store is more silicone than in mother’s milk from women with implants. In addition, it has been shown that the vast majority of women who try to breastfeed after having their breasts enlarged are able to do so successfully.


    Do implants require a massage?

    Depending on the type of implant, you can start massaging your breasts routinely one week after surgery to minimize the risk of hardening. Dr. Marta is a very experienced authority in the field of breast implants and will show you the appropriate techniques. However, if you have an implant in the form of coherent tear-shaped gel joints, a massage is not necessary.


    Can I do mammography or magnetic resonance imaging of the breast after having augmented with implants?

    Yes. However, be sure to inform the technician about your breast implants prior to testing. It is important to be able to see the structure around the implant for a contrast study. Technicians in every hospital will know how to make additional views correctly.
