Today, it is possible to change breasts surgically to a very beautiful natural result. A breast augmentation is often done to improve the shape and size of the breasts. Many women also lose elasticity in their breasts same goes for volume and firmness over the years, which can be restored through an enlargement. A breast augmentation can also be done to correct congenital deformities or to reconstruct breasts after cancer surgery. It is also possible to reduce the size of the nipples that have stretched out and become longer due to breastfeeding.
We make both minor and major changes, and regardless of breast size, many of our patients desire a natural appearance. With our aesthetic and medical expertise, high-quality implants and a skilled plastic surgeons who listens to your wishes and based on your conditions, you will get a nice result that you can be satisfied with for many years.
Provides advice and support before your choice
We also measure the dimensions of the breasts and chest to be able to calculate where to place your implants. Our plastic surgeons and nurses can provide advice and support, but the decisive factor in the choice of implant and size is your wishes and what is medically and technically possible.
Helps you book surgery time
During the visit, you will receive information about how much the procedure may cost, as well as our waiting times and more. You will also be asked to complete a questionnaire about your health and any previous illnesses and surgeries. If you choose to go ahead with an operation, we will help you with an appointment that suits you
As with any type of surgery, there is a risk of infection. Other risks are asymmetry in the healing phase, rotation of the implant, folding of the outer casing of the prosthesis, sensory impact around the scar and in some cases also on other parts of the breast. In recent years, attention has been drawn to a new cause of so-called late wound fluid formation, BIA-ALCL. It is a very rare form of lymphoma that in most cases can be completely cured by removing the implant and surrounding connective tissue membrane.
Yes, it is fine to have a mammogram but it is important that you tell the nurse before the examination that you have breast implants so that they can perform it correctly
They are soft and pliable but of course not as soft as a completely “natural” breast feels. In connection with your consultation, you will have the opportunity to feel and squeeze the v
With today’s implants, there is not really an exact limit, but many choose to replace their implants for various reasons after 10-15 years, when it may be appropriate to book a new consultation. On the one hand, you get help with an examination of the breasts and implants, and on the other hand suggestions for possible new surgery if necessary. It is important to remember that a lot happens to the body in 10-15 years – it ages and undergoes other changes such as weight loss and pregnancy and breastfeeding. If you are still satisfied with the implants after 10-15 years, there is no reason to replace them if they are intact. Today’s modern implants can last for 20-25 years.
It’s really a matter of taste. What results do you want to achieve and how do you want your breasts to look after your breast surgery. You can get a naturally nice result with both variants.
You get help from the plastic surgeon in connection with the consultation to choose the breast implant that suits you best for the result you want to achieve. It is important to carefully analyze and discuss before making the final choice.
The breast may become a little tender, lose its shape and feel uncomfortable. Often, the side with capsular formation becomes firmer and pulls slightly upwards on the ribcage. If you suspect capsule formation or that something else is not as it should be with the breasts or implants, it is important to contact us. Then we book a visit with your plastic surgeon who examines and suggests the appropriate measure.
Simply explained, this means that the body forms a tissue around the implant itself, roughly like a shell. It is not dangerous in itself, but can feel uncomfortable, among other things, because the breast can become hard and it can also change shape. This is remedied with a new operation where the implant is replaced. The risk is approximately 4-5% in the first 10-15 years after the operation.
In many cases, a breast augmentation is more about getting the shape and volume you want the breasts to have, rather than getting them that much bigger. In that way, the word “magnification” is a bit misleading. Most of our patients want proportional breasts that fit their body.
Which type of implant and size suits you best depends on your individual circumstances and how your body looks. With a high probability, you and your friend do not look exactly alike and what will be best for you may not be the same one that suited her. We do a proper analysis in connection with the consultation and together select it if it corresponds to the result you want to achieve
Yes, you must be prepared for it to hurt during the first period after the operation, but we will help you with appropriate pain relief. Often it feels more like a pressure and weight over the chest because the pectoral muscle is stretched over the implant.
We recommend that you do not exercise at all during the first three weeks after your operation. Walking is already ok immediately after the operation. After three weeks it is ok to start training, but you should avoid training that affects the chest muscles and therefore you should avoid all exercises where the arms are used. Also “bumpy” activity such as jogging and horse riding.
Yes, it is not completely invisible, but it is normally very small and discreet. Usually just as a very thin and fine line that lies right in the breast crease when the scar has completely healed after a few months.
Most often, it is best to place it under the pectoral muscle. Partly, the muscle hides the implant itself, which gives a more natural result. In part, it contributes to the breast implant being better kept in place.
Capsular formation is something that occurs when a thickened connective tissue capsule forms around the implant, causing the breast to feel hard.
A capsule formation is not dangerous in itself, but can impair the shape and texture of the breasts. In the event that severe capsular formation occurs, it may be necessary to have a supplementary operation. The capsule is then widened via the old skin incisions so that the breasts feel soft again, a so-called capsule splitting.
If you have more questions and concerns, please contact us. Likewise, if you want to book an appointment for a consultation, you are welcome to contact us.
For us, it is important that you get as natural a result as possible. And to get that, you have to measure yourself and take into account your biological conditions. How the implant is inserted affects the position of your nipples. If the implant is placed too low, the nipples point upwards and if placed too high, they instead point downwards
The silicone that the implant contains is so-called dimensionally stable, i.e. it is not liquid but resembles the consistency of a jelly raspberry. If the implant were to break for some reason, the contents cannot “flow out” into the body”. It then stays inside the thin capsule that the body has formed around the implant.
In the last 25 years, the methods of anesthesia have developed a lot and the risks today are very low. Everyone who is to be sedated undergoes a risk assessment by the anesthesiologist. Certain medical conditions can mean an increased risk, eg heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity. The week before your operation, your case is discussed at an operation conference with the surgeon, anesthesiologist and operating room nurse.
In order for the anesthesia to be carried out safely, it is important that the anesthesiologist is informed of the state of health, any medication and the diseases that are present.
All operations and anesthesia carry a risk, but it depends on many factors, for example type of surgery and state of health. For the vast majority, the risk is low. Ask the anesthetist how the risk assessment is for you. The fear many people experience before anesthesia is usually unfounded and is rather due to a loss of control.
There is no standard dose. All anesthetics are adapted for the individual based on the operation to be carried out and the individual’s conditions.
We all react differently to anesthesia. The differences depend on, among other things, genetic factors, metabolism, the state of health and morbidity.
The amount of anesthetic varies due to factors such as weight, age, sex, medication and illnesses.
During anesthesia, heart rate and rhythm, blood pressure, respiratory rate, breath volume and content of oxygen and carbon dioxide as well as oxygen saturation are monitored, measured and recorded. Because each patient is unique, the choice of anesthetic and method must be tailored.
