A more permanent and effective solution - instead of constantly wearing push-up bras.

Breast augmentation with implant

Breast augmentation with implants

What happens during the operation and what is the treatment procedure?

Firstly, the planned incision is marked in a sitting position and the planned implant position is marked with a felt-tip pen. Once the anaesthetic has been induced, a local anaesthetic is also injected. The anaesthetic is mixed with a drug that causes the small blood vessels to contract locally. This minimises bleeding during the operation.

After the skin incision, the required cavity is created for the implant. This is crucial for the subsequent result. The implant of the desired size and shape is then placed in the breast. With the patient in a half-sitting position, our plastic surgeon checks whether the resulting breast shape appears natural and aesthetic.

In most cases, a drain is inserted through which the wound secretion is sucked out for one to two days. The wound is then closed in several layers with fine sutures. The operation is performed under general anaesthetic and takes about two hours.

Choice of implant

The operation should lead to the best possible result, which is why the procedure is preceded by very careful planning. Dr Kania will discuss the various options for breast lifting and augmentation with implants with you. All implants consist of a silicone shell. We prefer microtextured implants with a minimally roughened surface. The silicone shell is filled with the latest generation of high-quality, cohesive silicone gel, which cannot leak.

The modern silicone gel flows downwards when standing and to the side when lying down, creating a very natural breast shape. Implants filled with saline solution can also be used on request.

The Choice of the for you suitable implant is an important part of surgical planning. It is best to bring a light-coloured T-shirt to the consultation so that Dr Kania can simulate the effect of different implants with you in front of the mirror. The novoLinea clinic only uses high-quality implants that come with a guarantee.

For your safety, you will also receive a personal implant passport, in which the data of the inserted implant is listed and can therefore be checked at any time.

Incision and placement of the implant

The most frequently chosen incisions are

  • in the Underbust crease (submammary) 
  • at the lower edge of the Areola (periareolar)
  • through or around the areola (transareolar)
  • in the Armpit (axillary)

Dr Kania will discuss the best procedure for you in detail before the operation.

Placement of the implant

The implant can be placed either partially or completely behind the muscles (submuscular) or between the muscles and the mammary gland (subglandular) can be placed. 

Ultrasound examination, mammography Dr Kania will discuss with you during the detailed consultation whether an ultrasound examination and/or mammography is advisable before the operation.

Preparation for breast augmentation
Breast augmentation with autologous fat

Breast augmentation with autologous fat

What happens during the operation? Liposuction Firstly, the areas where fat is to be removed are marked with a felt-tip pen. Liposuction is performed using water-jet assisted? liposuction (WAL). The fat cells are flushed out of the tissue and filtered. Scientific studies have shown that most fat cells remain intact with this method.

Transplantation of fatty tissue

The filtered fatty tissue is injected into the breast through tiny incisions in the skin using thin cannulas in different layers. The fat is injected into the subcutaneous fatty tissue, behind the mammary gland and sometimes also into the pectoral muscle. Fat cannot be injected into the mammary gland itself. The operation takes two to three hours and can be performed under twilight sleep or general anaesthetic. We recommend one night in hospital.

Which is better silicone or autologous fat?

The most sensible method depends on your initial situation and the desired change. We have listed all the advantages and disadvantages below:

Advantages of breast augmentation with implants

  • Variable size and shape
  • Durable
  • Extensive and long-term experience available
  • Larger volume changes also possible

Disadvantages of breast implants:

  • Risks of implantation (e.g. capsular fibrosis, implant rupture)
  • Possible need to change implants over the years

Advantages of autologous fat breast augmentation

  • Use of the body's own tissue
  • Fat reduction at the donor site (e.g. stomach, legs, buttocks)
  • No scarring on the breast as the implant is inserted through a very fine cannula

Disadvantages of breast augmentation with autologous fat grafting

  • Only small volume changes possible
  • There must be sufficient fat in the body

Frequently asked questions about breast augmentation

Below you will find frequently asked questions and answers about breast surgery (one of the most common operations in the field of aesthetic surgery):

How old do I have to be for a breast augmentation?

Basically, the following applies: physical growth and Age of majority must be finalised.

What should I look out for after breast augmentation with implants?

Breast augmentation with implant

In the first few days, it is usually necessary to take painkillers.

The patient can leave the bed on the day of the operation. The inpatient stay is one day. Once the drains have been removed, the well-fitting special bra must be worn day and night for the next 6 weeks.

The patient is fit for socialising again as soon as she is discharged from hospital.

Nevertheless, physical rest is necessary for the first three weeks after breast augmentation. Lifting the arms in particular leads to tension on the sutures and should be strictly avoided for the first three weeks. Sports such as tennis and golf or heavy lifting should be avoided for six weeks. The stitches dissolve by themselves and do not need to be removed.

Breast augmentation with autologous fat

Severe pain is not to be expected after the operation, but rather the feeling of a strong muscle ache. This is why painkillers are rarely necessary. A special bra and compression trousers should be worn for six weeks after the operation. The fine stitches are removed after one week.

As part of the transplanted fat tissue (approx. 20 to 30 %) is always absorbed by the body, the final result can only be assessed after six months. At the follow-up examination, you will decide together with Dr Kania whether the breast augmentation achieved is sufficient or whether a further fat graft is advisable.

What is a minimal scar breast augmentation?

Minimal scar breast augmentation is a surgical method with very short scars and little pain (More information on minimal scar breast augmentation).

What complications can occur?

Breast augmentation with the help of a silicone implant

In the first few days, it is usually necessary to take painkillers.

The patient can leave the bed on the day of the operation. The inpatient stay is one day. Once the drains have been removed, the well-fitting special bra must be worn day and night for the next 6 weeks.

The patient is fit for socialising again as soon as she is discharged from hospital.

Nevertheless, physical rest is necessary for the first three weeks after breast augmentation. Lifting the arms in particular leads to tension on the sutures and should be strictly avoided for the first three weeks. Sports such as tennis and golf or heavy lifting should be avoided for six weeks. The stitches dissolve by themselves and do not need to be removed.

Breast augmentation through autologous fat transplantation

Severe pain is not to be expected after the operation, but rather the feeling of a strong muscle ache. This is why painkillers are rarely necessary. A special bra and compression trousers should be worn for six weeks after the operation. The fine stitches are removed after one week.

As part of the transplanted fat tissue (approx. 20 to 30 %) is always absorbed by the body, the final result can only be assessed after six months. At the follow-up examination, you will decide together with Dr Kania whether the breast augmentation achieved is sufficient or whether a further fat graft is advisable.

What scars can be expected?

When an implant is inserted, the tiny scars are placed in natural skin folds and are barely visible later on.Breast augmentation with autologous fat results in small scars when the fat is harvested and optical marks at the injection site that become relatively invisible within a short time.

What are the risks of breast augmentation?

Every breast augmentation requires the utmost precision and a sensitive procedure.

After breast augmentation, slight Swelling and haematomas occur. These are normal reactions of the body to the surgical procedure. They usually subside after a few days.

The resulting Scars fade over time. You can support your body with gentle therapies using ointments and scar massages.

Modern, high-quality silicone breast implants are among the best-studied medical products available today. They are usually very well tolerated. Nevertheless, they are a foreign body to which the body can react in different ways. Capsular fibrosis can develop after the insertion of a silicone breast implant. This is a tissue membrane that surrounds the implant. In rare cases, the breast implant may slip or harden.

Depending on the degree of severity, this can have a disturbing effect and may require a new breast operation. If the operation is performed in the area of the mammary gland, the ability to breastfeed can also be affected.

We will advise you on your individual risks during your consultation appointment and the corresponding preliminary examination. 

How long do silicone implants last?

The implants we use can theoretically be worn for a lifetime without any problems. However, we recommend regular implant checks. Please note, however, that the possible wearing time can vary from body to body.

How long will I have pain after breast augmentation?

Every person has an individual perception of pain. Pain is often described in the first few days after treatment, which can be reduced by taking appropriate medication.

How much does breast augmentation cost in Frankfurt am Main?

The cost of breast augmentation in Frankfurt depends on various factors. On the one hand, your personal wishes with regard to the shape and size of your new breasts and your personal requirements will have an influence. During your consultation and preliminary examination, you will find out the exact costs, including preventive care, surgery, anaesthesia, aftercare, etc.
