Breast augmentation at a glance
We believe it is very important for all patient concerns and questions related to the surgery to be addressed during one-on-one meetings with the patient’s doctor.
In order to ensure maximum success of the operation, we arrange at least three follow up and aftercare appointments at your M1 Schlossklinik facility during the recovery period.
In the rare case of complications, our specialised doctors can address them without delay.
The breast augmentation procedure takes about one hour and is done in-patient under general anaesthesia in one of Germany’s most modern private clinics, the M1 Schlossklinik, located in the Köpenick neighborhood of Berlin. During the one night stay, the price of which is included in the breast augmentation procedure, the highly qualified team of doctors and care givers on the M1 Schlossklinik team will provide individualised attention, in order to make the overnight stay as conducive to recuperating as possible. After the operation, the patient receives a specially created sports bra, which is to be worn for six to eight weeks.
In order to achieve optimal results, physical rest is required for a minimum of two weeks.
Are you unhappy with your breasts?
Female breasts – a sign of being a woman – can have a large effect on a woman’s self-esteem. Changes in the shape and size of breasts is often a consequence of weight loss, pregnancy, hormonal factors, ageing or genetic factors. These factors often lead women all over the world to contemplate having breast augmentation. In Germany alone there were about 55,000 breast augmentation procedures done in 2015. It is not only breast augmentation that can enhance self-esteem, breast reduction, breast lifts and nipple reshaping are becoming increasingly popular.
Breast augmentation with silicon gel implants
It is not only the types and procedures regarding breast augmentation that have changed in recent years, but also the silicon gel implants have improved greatly in terms of material, quality and safety. In addition to the variety of sizes available, with silicon gel implants, it is also possible to choose different shapes.
More and more women are choosing the classic round shape, as well as the anatomical breast implant (teardrop shape), which can achieve a more natural looking result. The M1 Schlossklinik only works with high- quality name brand products from leading manufacturers so as to find you the most suitable and high-quality breast implants. These latest generation silicon gel implants, with a lifetime guarantee, consist of a cohesive (cross-linked) silicon gel that prevents leaks in the case of damage to the implant.
Various methods of breast augmentation
In addition to the shape and size, the type of operation is also an important factor in the aesthetic of the breast. With a minimally invasive approach, usually in the lower fold of the breast, the breast implant can be inserted submuscularly (behind all four muscles of the breast) or sub pectorally (by lifting the large breast muscle). It is important that the different and specific treatment methods of breast augmentation are discussed extensively with our highly qualified and experienced doctors. They will advise you based on your current breast shape and your body as a whole, which method would be personally best for you in order to realise your wish to have a beautiful bustline.
Alternative treatment methods
There are various methods of breast augmentation. In addition to creams and pills, which often do not achieve the desired result, there is also breast augmentation with the patient’s own fat or with hyaluronic acid.
Indeed a breast augmentation using the patient’s own fat cells is a more gentle procedure, but it is only possible to increase size by a half cup per operation. The wait time between the first and second procedures is about three months. Since the body breaks down a certain amount of the fat, not all of the fat cells will grow after being injected. Additionally, the breasts will be very swollen for a time after the operation.
For breast augmentation using hyaluronic acidthe price is considerably higher. Unfortunately, these methods are not long-term solutions, because over time the body breaks down the materials used. In certain instances, the operation must be done again in order to maintain the desired result. When hyaluronic acid is used in the breast region, cysts or granulomas may occur. Breast cancer diagnosis in the presence of hyaluronic acid also becomes much more difficult.
The most effective solution for modelling a beautiful breast is to do the breast augmentation with modern silicon gel implants.
What should one pay attention to after breast augmentation?
In order to optimally monitor and examine the healing process, regular follow-up appointments with our doctors are very important.
Most importantly, only a support-bra should be worn during the first few weeks following a breast augmentation. This support-bra is designed to maintain the shape of your breasts and as a means of preventing the shifting of the implants. We recommend that you wear this support-bra for six to eight weeks after having breast augmentation. After that, it is recommended that you wear a sports bra and refrain from wearing underwires, particularly push-up bras. The support-bra is included in the cost of treatment.
Just two weeks after breast augmentation, swelling in the breast area will subside and after three months the final results will be visible.
You can begin doing gentle exercise after ten days, but anything that strains the breast and back areas should be avoided for at least six weeks.
Arrange an appointment and let our specialised doctors, board certified in Germany, advise you on the best options.
