Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures. It enhances the breast volume, creating a more aesthetically pleasing appearance, and improving the overall body contour. The procedure is suitable for woman who are not satisfied with the size of their breasts, as well as for woman who have lost firmness and/or volume in their breasts after pregnancy, weight loss or due to ageing. In the following menu you can find more information on breast augmentation. In case you would like our professional advice or if you would like to make an appointment, please contact us.
Before undergoing breast augmentation surgery there are a lot of decisions to be made, this ranges from size to type of implants and their placement. The first consultation is thus very important, since this will enable you to discuss all the different aspects of breast augmentation with Dr. Fantozzi. He will discuss your aesthetic wishes and subsequently advise you which method of treatment will let you meet those wishes in the best way possible. By making use of the unique anthropometric techniques that were developed by Dr. Fantozzi himself, this can even be scientifically calculated. This technique involves measuring the distance between the breasts and other parts of the body, through which perfect harmony can be reached. Furthermore you will be informed on the results you may expect, possible downtime and temporary limitations after the surgery. You can rest assured that you will always receive honest and professional advice during this consultation.
When undergoing breast augmentation surgery, one of the first decisions to make usually regards the desired cup size. Many women find it hard to choose the right size as they are afraid of making the wrong decision. During a non-committal consultation with Dr. Fantozzi it can be determined which size will meet your aesthetic wishes. By making use of the abovementioned anthropometric techniques, this can even be scientifically calculated to make sure that perfect harmony can be reached.
Besides choosing a size which suits your body type, one of the most important decisions to make when undergoing breast augmentation is which type of implants are used. Not only is there a difference between saline and silicone implants, but one can also choose between round or teardrop shaped implants. Regardless of the choice you make when it comes to the implants, Clinic Fantozzi only uses the highest quality materials which have been controlled strictly and are medically approved to ensure that your procedure is a success.
Another important aspect is to decide where the implants will be placed. For the most natural looking results, you will want to achieve a natural movement of the breasts with the breast implants. In order to make the breast implant and breast tissue move as one it would be best to place the implant in front of the pectoral muscle. The downside of this technique is that it might be possible to see the outline of the implant through the skin. Placing the implant behind the pectoral muscle solves this problem, but the downside with this is that the implant will lose its natural move when this muscle is being flexed. A relatively new technique is the dual plane method, which combines the best of both options. The implant will be partially placed in front as well as partially behind the pectoral muscle. This usually promotes the most natural movement of the breasts while making sure the outline of the implant is invisible.
Besides opting for implants, it is also possible to perform a breast augmentation surgery using the techniques of lipo-filling. This procedure has the unique advantage of restoring the aesthetic harmony of your body by making use of your own body fat, as it involves transferring fat from a part of your body to the face via injection. After the fat is retrieved from the body it is being filtered and placed back under the skin in order to create contour, volume and durable skin improvement. The idea behind this is to place back what was naturally there, to attain the most natural results. Since the tissue is retrieved from your own body it is a completely safe procedure with the risk of rejection, inflammation and allergic reaction being eliminated.
The procedure itself will depend on the selected method of surgery. When it regards a breast augmentation procedure with use of implants, the implants will be inserted through a small incision will be made at the inconspicuous place right below the breast as to keep the visibility of scar tissue limited to a minimum. When the method of lipo-filling is selected, a mini soft-liposculpture will be performed to retrieve fat from the body, after which it will be placed in the breast area using injection. No matter which choice you make with regards to the technique of the breast augmentation surgery, you can rest assured that Dr. Fantozzi and his highly-skilled team will make no concessions when it comes to the quality and safety of the procedure. Breast augmentation procedures are performed under light anesthesia and usually take about 1 hour.
During the consultation Dr. Fantozzi will inform you on the expected down-time and temporary limitations after a breast augmentation procedure. To secure the quality and results of the surgery, we will schedule an appointment for a check-up following the procedure. Besides that we will make sure you can prepare accordingly prior to the surgery, think for example about medicine use, help around the household during the recovery period and buying a supporting sports bra.
