What is breast augmentation surgery?

Breast augmentation surgery aims to modify the size and/or shape of the breasts by placing prostheses, generally made of silicone, of the size desired by the patient and previously discussed with the surgeon. This procedure is common in cosmetic surgery and is one of the most frequently performed procedures in the world.

This involves making a discreet incision in the breast to place the 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 women seeking breast augmentation want to increase the size of their breasts, which they often perceive as too small. For these women, breast augmentation offers a suitable solution, enabling them to fulfill their wishes and regain their self-confidence.

Other reasons may prompt women to opt for this procedure, notably asymmetry of the breasts, which may concern their size, shape or areola. This asymmetry may be present from birth or result from changes following pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Our team is there to support you during your breast augmentation in Namur or in one of our aesthetic clinics in Belgium, and to meet your expectations as best as possible to guarantee a harmonious result as close as possible to your expectations.

How does breast augmentation work?

Preliminary consultation

It is essential to start with an initial consultation with your surgeon. The aim of this event is twofold. First, it allows you to express your expectations concerning your

Breast reduction

breast augmentation. This meeting offers a time for dialogue, where you can ask all your questions and express your doubts. It’s also an opportunity to share the reasons behind your decision to undergo breast surgery. On the surgeon’s side, the aim of this consultation is to understand your motivations and support you in your choices. Our specialist brings her expertise to bear on the important aspects and recommended practices of breast augmentation. It also presents the different options and sizes of prostheses available to help you make the right decision.

Operation sequence

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure requiring general anesthesia. This surgery, which lasts approximately 45 minutes, is performed by our plastic surgeon, who inserts the pre-selected implants. The operation involves an incision under the breasts, or under the armpits, to place the implant above or below the pectoral muscle. The choice of method depends on your personal preferences, your morphology, and the size of silicone prosthesis you choose.

After the operation, you’ll have the opportunity to wake up gently in our clinic’s recovery room, then enjoy a few hours’ rest in one of our rooms.

After the operation

It’s crucial to follow your surgeon’s advice scrupulously after your breast augmentation to prevent complications and ensure optimal healing. This includes several aspects such as :

  • Post-operative care: what you need and how you need it.
  • Recovery time: our expert will tell you how long it will take to recover fully.
  • What to do and what not to do: your surgeon will tell you what you can and cannot do during the healing period.
  • Signs of problematic healing: be alert for symptoms that could indicate complications.
  • Follow-up appointments: schedule subsequent consultations with your surgeon to assess the progress and results of the operation. It is during these consultations that he can check that the incision has healed properly.

  • Possible infection linked to the incision made during surgery.
  • Formation of a scar that is more visible than expected, requiring specific care to reduce its appearance.

Which implants for your breast augmentation near Namur.

Choose your implant: shape, material and volume

The shape of your breast implant

For your breast augmentation, you can choose from several forms of prostheses:

– The round implant: this half-spherical prosthesis gives the breasts a rounded, generously curved appearance.

– The anatomical implant: shaped like a drop of water, this prosthesis gives a more natural appearance to the breasts.

– The ergonomic implant: also round, but less voluminous than the classic round implant, it gives a natural appearance to the breasts while reducing the risk of rotation of the silicone prosthesis.

Your decision will depend on your expectations and the shape of your breasts. Our surgeon will outline the advantages and disadvantages of each option to help you make your choice.

The materials used in your breast prostheses

You can choose between different materials for your breast implants. Silicone is often preferred for its ability to provide a natural feel and harmonize with your body. However, it is important to carry out regular checks to identify any risk of implant leakage.

The volume of your breast implant

The choice of breast implant volume is primarily guided by the result you wish to achieve. If your goal is to increase your cup size by one or more levels, the implant volume will vary accordingly, depending on the desired breast size and your current size.

However, it is essential to discuss these choices with your surgeon. The expertise of a professional is crucial to determine whether the chosen volume is appropriate and adapted to your morphology. Choosing implants that are too large for your natural breasts, for example, can cause posture problems. The advice of your surgeon is therefore essential when making such an important decision.

Prosthesis placement during breast augmentation

There are three possible incision sites for breast augmentation:

  1. The axillary incision, made under the armpits.
  2. The infra-mammary incision, in the fold under the breast, is the most commonly used.
  3. The peri-areolar incision, located around the areola.

As for implant positioning, the surgeon can choose from three techniques:

– Dual-plane placement, where the implant is partially inserted under the pectoral muscle, offering a more natural appearance.

– Placement behind the pectoral muscle, often chosen for patients with smaller breasts, requiring the implant to be positioned under the muscle.

– Placement in front of the pectoral muscle, a frequently used method and the simplest for breast augmentation, as it does not require manipulation of the pectoral muscles.

How long can I keep a breast implant?

The longevity of breast implants is generally estimated at between 10 and 15 years, but this may vary depending on the patient and the type of implant used. However, it is essential to have regular consultations with a surgeon in order to monitor and detect possible complications at an early stage, such as :

implant change

  1. Silicone implant rupture.
  2. Prosthesis leakage.
  3. Turning or moving the implant.
  4. Problems related to the incision scar.

You can also make an appointment with one of our surgeons in La Hulpe, whether to ask questions, discuss a possible replacement or even consider changing the shape or volume of your implants. We are at your disposal to meet your needs.
