Breast enlargement

Breast enlargement surgery increases the volume of your breasts and improves their shape and proportion. Every year, many women who feel they have small breasts undergo breast enlargement surgery. Most women choose breast enlargement to give underdeveloped breasts volume or to regain the former proportions of their breasts after pregnancy or losing weight. With breast enlargement, your breasts do not only gain extra volume, but they also become firmer. The goal is to ensure that your breasts form a beautiful whole with your body. Our plastic surgeons are happy to meet with you in a personal consultation where they will answer all of your questions and work with you to determine which treatment options are best for you.

During the initial consultation, you will discuss your needs and expectations with the plastic surgeon. The surgeon will tell you what options are available and what results you can expect. The plastic surgeon will explain how a breast enlargement is performed. The entire treatment process will be discussed and you will be informed in detail about the different options, the pros and cons of breast enlargement, aftercare, risks of and possible complications after surgery. In addition, we will discuss whether your personal wishes fit your initial situation.

In this consultation you can also ask all your questions about breast enlargement. The size of your breasts will be measured. Next you can get an impression of the possible result with fitting prostheses. We always take into consideration your wishes, your figure and the quality of your skin when choosing a breast prosthesis. Prostheses differ not only in size, but also in shape (round or drop-shaped). The prostheses can be placed under the pectoral muscle or under the mammary gland. Which placement gives you the best results depends on your skin and tissue. Don’t want silicone prostheses? Wilt u geen siliconen protheses? Then in some cases it is possible to enlarge breasts with body fat, i.e. lipofilling. This is only possible if you have sufficient body fat in the appropriate areas. Ask your surgeon about the possibilities.

We believe it is important to properly inform you during the consultation about the results to be achieved, the risks and possible complications so that you can make an informed decision. Ultimately, your wishes and satisfaction with the results of the treatment are our primary concerns.

A consultation is subject to a €100 consultation fee. These will be deducted from the final price of the treatment.

Breast enlargement is performed under general anesthesia and takes an average of one to one and a half hours. During surgery, the prosthesis is inserted through a small incision of about 5 cm in the inframammary fold. Then the incisions are carefully sutured and taped with a band-aid. If necessary, the breasts are bandaged with supportive bandages to enhance recovery. After surgery, fluid may drip from the wound. To drain the wound fluid properly, two thin tubes (drains) are inserted. When hardly any fluid drips from the wound, the tubes are removed. In most cases, this happens the next morning.

Your breasts may feel sore and tight after breast enlargement. The pain will gradually subside in the days following surgery. To help with breast recovery, we have some tips:

  • For the first six weeks after surgery, wear a sports bra without underwire day and night. We will hand out this bra after surgery.
  • For the first six weeks after surgery, avoid any form of intense exercise, such as sports or heavy lifting.
  • Movements that you can perform painlessly will always be allowed, for they will not interfere with recovery.

For several months after breast enlargement surgery, the nipples may be extra sensitive or less sensitive. This is a normal phenomenon that generally disappears after a few months. To ensure that we can intervene immediately in case of any complications and to relieve you in the first important hours after the procedure, we recommend staying in the hospital overnight in most cases.

For the first six weeks after breast enlargement, the scars are swollen and red. After that, this swelling and redness gradually disappear. The complete healing process of scars takes one to one and a half years. To promote this process, we recommend using a good scar cream and to avoid exposure of your scars to UV radiation. To promote the wound healing process, we advise you not to smoke for six weeks before and six weeks after surgery. This reduces the risk of bleeding and other complications. We also recommend that you do not drink alcohol one week before and one week after surgery.

As with any surgery, there is a small chance of complications. Common risks are: The general risks are:

  • post-bleeding
  • infections
  • swelling
  • delayed wound healing
  • allergic reactions

Specific complications that may occur in exceptional cases of breast enlargement are:

  • sensory changes
  • asymmetry
  • capsular contracture

A capsular contracture occurs when the connective tissue layer that forms around the prosthesis contracts instead of remaining flexible and thin. This contraction can make the breasts feel harder. In extremely rare cases, this is accompanied by pain and distortion of the breast.

At Blooming Plastic Surgery, we like to be transparent about the potential complications that may arise after surgery. Disturbing reports are currently circulating about breast enlargement with implants.

Frequently asked questions about breast enlargement

At Blooming Plastic Surgery, only qualified and experienced plastic surgeons perform breast enlargement. The safety of breast implants has been under discussion in the media recently which is why we have prepared this article (in Dutch) in which we inform in detail about possible complications with silicone breast implants.

Breast augmentation is performed under general anesthesia, and therefore you will not experience anything from the procedure itself. Once the anesthesia wears off, you may experience pain symptoms, but these are different for everyone. In addition, it also depends on where the breast prosthesis is inserted. When the plastic surgeon places the breast prostheses behind the breast muscle during breast augmentation, the pain symptoms will be more severe than when placed behind the glandular tissue. After surgery, you will stay in the hospital overnight so that we can provide aftercare. When you are allowed to go home, we will give you a prescription for painkillers.

After surgery, paracetamol is sufficient to relieve pain. In case of extreme pain, please contact the clinic and something stronger may be prescribed. Never use blood-thinning medication such as Aspirin.
