Breast Enlargement

When do women consider bust enlargement?

Most often the candidates for this surgical interventional are women whom have small or normal sized breasts and wish to enlarge them.

Typically surgical enlargement is recommended for women with the following physical characteristics:

  • An underdeveloped bust
  • With disproportionately developed breasts
  • With one breast significantly smaller than the other
  • For cases of a loss of the original breast form and volume due to pregnancy, nursing, the effects of aging or specific diseases

The desired bust size is determined during the consultation and depends mainly on three factors:

 - The patients wish

 - The ability of the area to accept the desired implant volume

 - The patients body shape

During the consultation the doctor discusses with the patient the size of the desired bust, implant types, operation access points, as well as possible risks and complications.


In order to achieve the desired bust size, silicon gel or other specialized implants are used. We offer several surgical incision options: a one to two inch incision under the breast along the natural breast fold, a half moon shaped incision along the lower edge of the areola, or an incision in the underarm area. During the consultation, an evaluation and assessment of the best options by the treating specialist and the patient is performed. 

Whether the implant should be placed on or under the pectoral muscle depends on the specific case and the type of selected implant. After the surgical incision is made, a pocket is formed in which the implant is inserted on top of or under the pectoral muscle. For cases of breast sagging, a breast lift is recommended to be performed during the breast augmentation procedure.  Additionally, we offer computer based modeling to select the best selection for our patients in terms of size and form of the breasts.

For these breast augmentation procedures, we administer general anesthesia and conduct the procedure in a specialized operation theatre. 


After the procedure the common symptoms are temporary pain, sensitivity, changes in nipple sensitivity, stiffness and soreness for approximately 2-3 weeks. One can expect to return to work if not physically stressed in several days after the procedure. To support the recovery process and maximize the results, it is required to wear a support bra or specialized garment for approximately a month after the procedure, and normal physical activity can be resumed approximately 2-3 weeks after the intervention.
