Augmentation mammoplasty is a surgical operation that is performed to increase the size of the mammary glands with the help of an implant, which is placed under the mammary gland or under the large pectoral muscle.
Endoprosthetics of mammary glands (increasing mammoplasty) is carried out with the purpose of increasing the volume of the breast, to correct the asymmetry of the mammary glands, to give them a more aesthetic form, in order to eliminate ptosis (omission of the sagging of the breast) in the postpartum period.
Plastic surgery on breast augmentation is carried out with the help of special implants, which differ in shape, size, shell (texture) and filler.
The choice of this or that type of implant depends on the form of the breast to be given, on the methods of the incisions, and also on the physiological characteristics of the patient’s mammary glands.
We also use innovative equipment, with which we perform 3D modeling of the results of plastic surgery.
Quite often, breast augmentation is carried out simultaneously with breast lift surgery (mastopexy).
We insure against possible postoperative complications
Frequent questions about Breast augmentation (augmentation mammoplasty)
(RU) Операция категорически противопоказана, когда у пациентки: присутствуют заболевания сердечно-сосудистой системы, обостряются заболевания внутренних органов и хронические болезни, протекающие инфекционные и / или онкологическими заболеваниями или наблюдаются нарушения свертывания крови.
Также запрещено хирургическое вмешательство в период кормления грудью.
Нельзя оперироваться использовав имплант, и девочкам, не достигшим совершеннолетия без письменного разрешения родителей. В этот период – молочная железа еще не сформировалась полностью, поэтому такая операция опасна для здоровья.
Опытный и профессиональный хирург не возьмется за операцию, если женщина с такими болезнями как сахарный диабет, глаукома, ревматизм, красная волчанка, ожирение, мастопатия или другими хроническими или аутоиммунными заболеваниями не пройдет комплексное обследование. При таких заболеваниях – есть существенный риск осложнений.
The form of implants. There are two main forms of implants on the market: round and drop-shaped (implants of anatomical shape). Round endoprostheses give a more filled appearance and form a globular shape of the breast. Breast implants of anatomical shape provide more natural lines of the mammary gland, but they are more expensive and more difficult to install.
The shell of the implants. The surface of the breast endoprostheses can be smooth and textured. The use of textured implants reduces the likelihood of their rotation after implantation. In addition, they have a thicker shell, which reduces the risk of rupture, but such endoprostheses require larger incisions compared to smooth ones. Smooth implants are easier to install, require smaller incisions, but have a thinner shell, which increases the risk of rupture.
Fillers of implants. Depending on the filler used, the implants are divided into saline and silicone. As a filler in saline implants, physiological saline is used. Saline endoprostheses have both advantages and disadvantages. Advantages include: harmlessness of the filler for the body (saline is absorbed by surrounding tissues), they are much cheaper than silicone, because the implants are filled with liquid after the installation, they need smaller sections. Minuses: shorter life due to the penetration of saline into the surrounding tissue through the implant shell. Silicone implants are filled with cohesive gel, which provides fairly high elasticity and keeps the shape, even in cases of damage of the shell of endoprosthesis.
At the meeting, we will discuss your medical history, especially as regards previous injuries (damages), allergic reactions and previous plastic surgeries, if any.
We will consider in detail all the problems that you are experiencing because of the breast and its aesthetic characteristics, which, you think, are undesirable and must be corrected.
After examining external characteristics of mammary glands, we will discuss in detail your wishes and on how much, in our opinion, the operation will meet them.
Also you will be informed about all the details of the upcoming augmentation mammoplasty, its duration, rehabilitation period and possible complications.
All of the above-mentioned complications after augmentation mammoplasty are exceptions that arise periodically despite the leading standards in surgical practice. We have outlined them for the purpose of informing you properly and in no way intimidating.

for the service "Breast augmentation":
The unique 3D modeling of the future operation result using the Vectra 3D XT machine, allows you, together with the doctor, to select the most natural, and organic result of breast surgery (changing the shapes or sizes according to the individual proportions).
Modeling procedure takes place during the personal consultation, where you have the opportunity to discuss with the doctor all the details of the future result. At the end of the procedure, the full presentation will be prepared by the doctor for you , with the view “before and after the changes”.
A personalized approach to the patient allows us to organize an online consultation and determine the exact volume of surgical treatment based on the provided diagnostics and studies, shows the results “before and after” on similar operations, identify the individual needs and wishes
