Breast augmentation procedures are by far the most frequently performed operations worldwide. Despite the high degree of standardization of the procedure, only a thorough preparation, repeated qualitative pre-operative consulting, as well as a thorough implementation and regular postoperative control of the results promise an aesthetically pleasing result.
Each breast is unique and demands a particularly cautious consideration and handling. We take a lot of time to present all details of the procedure in two pre-operative consultations in order to reach or even surpass the desired surgical result.
The highest priority in all Dr. Matejic’s surgeries is your personal safety. For this reason, only those implants which guarantee maximum safety are used for the purpose of breast augmentation. The ideal implant form for you, the access, and the position of the implant will be discussed with you extensively in the consultation with the help of sample photos. All potential complications as well as ways of dealing with them will be explained to you. Furthermore, you will be able to choose the implant size in a life-3D representation from the range recommended to you by Dr. Matejic. After the entire postoperative guidance has been comprehensibly presented to you, you will be scheduled for a second consultation to give you enough time for a pressure-free decision.
The operation itself proceeds as follows. After you have been gently anesthetized, a 4-4.5cm-long cut is made either in the inframammary fold or at the areola. From there, an implant pocket is prepared either below or above the pectoral muscle. After the trial implants, the original implants are inserted. The wound drains from the respective axilla are painlessly removed next day. After a multilayered wound closure, the breasts are wrapped until the next morning.
On the following day and upon removal of the drainage, you will receive a support bra that you should wear for six weeks (day and night), as well as a so-called Stuttgart belt for two weeks. At least two postoperative checks are to be conducted, according to your individual needs, until the stitches are removed. All further checks are free of charge and can be arranged according to your demand. Regardless of the access/incision you choose, the scars are usually hardly visible. The operation lasts 40 – 50 minutes. Postoperatively you will not experience any pain except for sore muscles.
