Breast augmentation with implant

Many women want a beautiful and well-shaped breast. Breast augmentation is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries in Europe, because a breast that matches your own sense of beauty also has a positive effect on your perception of your body and self-confidence.

The size and shape of the breasts represent an important aspect of femininity for many women. After breastfeeding or after major weight loss, the breasts can change dramatically, which is a burden for many women. If the breasts have been small since puberty, this is medically referred to as “micromastia” or “breast hypoplasia”.

Implants made of high-quality silicone make the breasts look beautiful. Dr. Colette C. Camenisch, your specialist for breast surgery in Switzerland, models your breasts with great c care and ensures a harmonious overall appearance with natural-looking curves.

“A 3D simulation depicts your breast augmentation precisely and realistically.”

The ideal preparation for breast augmentation is a 3D simulation. We assess your chest, photograph you from all sides and create a 3D simulation within minutes. The selected breast implants are adjusted according to needs and body shape.

The doctor told me: “Until now, I've always claimed that I would look at every sweater to see if there is an implant underneath. But I definitely can't say that with you anymore!”

Frequently asked questions

Will I feel the implant afterwards?

At first, you may feel a slight sensation of pressure. If the implant is placed under the chest muscle, the pain may be slightly more pronounced in the first two weeks. For a few weeks, and in rare cases somewhat longer, sensation is lost or changed. However, in most cases, this normalizes over time. Patients occasionally complain of a certain foreign body sensation during the first six weeks. In very slim patients with little subcutaneous fat tissue, the implant may be palpable on the sides or in the chest fold. Normally, however, an implant is not noticeable from the outside.

How long will I be unable to work?

Depending on the professional activity, you can expect to be unable to work for at least five to seven days.

When will I be able to exercise again?

After six to eight weeks, operation incisions have largely healed and you can slowly resume physical activity. You can engage in light exercise, such as walking or cycling, around four weeks after surgery. Strength training, jogging, tennis or swimming can only be resumed again after eight weeks.

What are the risks of a breast augmentation?

In principle, every operation involves certain risks (e.g. drug intolerance, bruises, wound healing disorders, inflammation, scarring or sensory disorders). They also depend on the individual's state of health.

The formation of capsular fibrosis represents a specific risk. This is a reaction towards a foreign body that results in the implant being covered with the body's own connective tissue.

When this layer of tissue contracts, the implant is constricted so that the chest feels harder. In severe cases, a corrective procedure is then carried out to remove the scar tissue. This requires an implant replacement.

The doctor discusses possible risks with you during the consultation and preparatory meetings.

Which implants are most commonly used?

We only use the most modern, high-quality and tested (FDA approved, CE certification) implants made of cross-linked silicone. The advantages: they can no longer expire and produce very nice, natural and long-lasting results.

Does breast augmentation leave visible scars?

The four-and-a-half to five-centimeter-long scar lies in the chest fold and is usually barely visible after healing is complete.

Do implants lead to an increased risk of breast cancer?

No, extensive studies show that breast implants do not increase the risk of breast cancer.

Do I have to tell you if I am taking medication?

It is extremely important that you always inform the treating doctor about any illnesses and medications you are taking. You should cease taking any blood-thinning medications (aspirin, aspegic or omega-3 fatty acids) two weeks before the procedure. Such medications can cause increased bleeding during surgery and delay the subsequent healing process. The doctor may decide not to perform a planned operation at any time if the surgical risk is increased as a result of the prior use of medication.

Do the implants have to be replaced after a certain period of time?

As with other procedures involving foreign material and implants, when it comes to breast augmentation it cannot be ruled out that follow-up treatment may be required at some time. The reason for any replacement lies not only with the durability of the implant, but also to changes in one's own body, which is why the likelihood of a replacement increases with age. However, based on experience with the latest silicone implants, it can be assumed that they will last a long time.
