What is breast augmentation surgery?

Breast augmentation surgery is a procedure that targets the patient’s breasts with the aim of altering their size and/or shape. This procedure involves the placement of prostheses, usually made of silicone and of the desired size, in the breasts to create a volume increase. Today, this aesthetic procedure is the most widely performed of all breast surgery procedures in Belgium and around the world.

This involves making a small incision in the patient’s breasts to insert the breast implants in front of or behind the pectoral muscle. There are a variety of implant shapes, volumes and materials, as well as incision and positioning techniques.

Why choose breast augmentation?

Most breast augmentation patients find that their breasts are too small. Breast augmentation is then the most appropriate solution to satisfy their desires and restore their self-confidence.

Breast asymmetry is another reason why women have recourse to this procedure. This asymmetry, which may be present from birth or appear following pregnancy or breast-feeding, concerns the size, shape or areola of the breasts.

Whatever your reason for wanting a breast augmentation procedure in Charleroi or in one of our aesthetic clinics in Belgium, our team of specialists is there to accompany you, listen to you and advise you on your choices so that you can find the body well-being you’re looking for.

How does breast augmentation work?

Preliminary consultation

During the first consultation with the surgeon, you will be asked to express your expectations and wishes concerning the desired result of the operation. This is also the time when you discuss your doubts and questions with the surgeon, so that you can better understand how your breast augmentation in Charleroi, or in one of our three aesthetic clinics in Belgium, will proceed.

The expert answers all your questions and guides you in your choices. It also introduces you to the issues, potential risks and post-operative care to consider following your breast surgery. For a better visualization of the result, he offers you different implant sizes to meet your desires in the most harmonious way possible according to your figure.

Operation sequence

As the operation is performed under general anesthesia, a consultation with an anesthetist is essential. The procedure takes around 45 minutes. During this phase, the surgeon will place the implants previously chosen during the consultation. To do this, he will make an incision under the armpit or under the breasts to position the implant above or below the pectoral muscle. These decisions will depend on your preferences, as well as on the volume of the implant filling. Following your operation, you will wake up peacefully in the recovery room before being taken to one of our comfortably appointed rooms.

After the operation

After your breast surgery, it is important to follow your surgeon’s recommendations to avoid any complications and to ensure perfect healing, particularly with regard to :

  • post-operative care, its nature and progress
  • recovery time
  • authorized and prohibited activities
  • any symptoms of poor healing
  • upcoming consultations with your surgeon to monitor the progress of the results of the operation

  • Scars are more visible than expected, so care is recommended to minimize their appearance.

Which implants for your breast augmentation in Charleroi?

Choose your implant: shape, material and volume

The shape of your breast implant

There are three types of breast prosthesis available for breast augmentation. The round, half-sphere-shaped implant gives breasts a rounded, bouncy appearance, while the anatomical, teardrop-shaped implant matches the natural curve of your breasts as closely as possible. As for the ergonomic implant, although it is also round in shape, it is less voluminous than the first, creating a natural effect while reducing the risk of the silicone prosthesis turning inside out.

The materials used in your breast prostheses

Cohesive silicone gel-filled implants are the most commonly used, offering a natural feel that adapts to your morphology. Regular check-ups with your surgeon are crucial to identify any ruptures.

The volume of your breast implant

The volume of your breast implant depends on the results you want to achieve and the size of your current breasts.

You will discuss this with your surgeon during your pre-operative consultation. He or she will present you with several implant volumes and advise you on the volume that best suits your figure.


Placement of the prosthesis duringduringmentation

The incision can be made in three different places:

  • Under the armpits, also called axillary incision
  • In the fold under the breast, the most frequently used incision is called the infra-mammary incision.
  • At the level of the areola of the breasts, this is the peri-areolar incision.

The surgeon can then position the implant in three different ways:

In a dual plane, which means that the implant will be placed partly under the pectoral muscle for a more natural look. Behind the pectoral muscle, this technique is generally reserved for patients with small breasts, requiring the implant to be placed under the muscle. And finally, in front of the pectoral muscle, which is the technique most frequently used by our specialists. It’s also the easiest way to achieve breast augmentation, since the surgeon doesn’t touch the pectoral muscles.

How long can I keep a breast implant?

Service life of a breast implant is generally 10 to 15 years. During this period, it is imperative that you consult your surgeon regularly to ensure that you do not encounter any of the complications listed below:

  • Silicone implant rupture
  • Implant rotation or displacement
  • Problems related to incision healing…

If you would like to change the shape or volume of your implants following breast augmentation in Charleroi or at one of our aesthetic clinics in Belgium, you can make an appointment with one of our surgeons for an informative consultation.
