  Breast correction   Enlargement - firming  - reduction
  Our striving for harmony, proportion and aesthetics is not limited to the parts of the body that are exposed such as the face. We also perform surgery on more intimate areas of the body. It must be borne in mind that there is no natural symmetry of the paired organs. In other words, organs such as the eyes, ears, breasts etc. are not naturally symmetrical.
Different cultural circles have different ideas as to what “NORMAL” feminine breasts should look like. For example, a “youthful French breast” would be considered underdeveloped in the U.S.A. whereas a large pair of American breasts would be considered unattractive by the French, and would therefore qualify for a reduction.
To us, the breasts, like any other part or area of the body, play a vitally important role in your erotic feminine radiance. Therefore, we aim at creating a natural-looking shape that suits your body. This applies in equal measure to the complete range of body-shaping procedures.
The breasts of a woman play an important role in her feelings of self-worth. If  the breasts are to undergo an operation due to any characteristics that are unpleasing to the patient, three important facts must be taken into consideration:
  • Attractive feminine shape (must be adapted to suit the size and shape of the body)
  • The breasts, in their role as an important erogenous zone, must retain their sensitivity
  • They must feel natural to the touch
  • A woman who has had a breast operation should still be able to breastfeed
  • The result must be long-lasting
In order to reach these goals, the various issues surrounding the problem must be considered individually and the procedure must be performed accordingly. Unlike in the face, where the rich blood supply promotes good healing, operations on the breasts are performed on a part of the body where the formation of scar tissue is not solely dependent on the efforts and the expertise of the surgeon. 
Rather, it is the genetics (DNA) of the patient – the quality of the scar tissue produced – that determines the end result to a large extent, making it difficult to make an exact prediction. 
This difficulty in predicting the quality of the scarring should be one of the main topics during the consultation preceding every operation.
 
 

Enlargement

In this procedure, an incision is made, according to the pre-determined wishes of the patient, and an implant, also selected by the patient, is inserted – usually BEHIND the mammary gland and IN FRONT OF the breast muscle. The results in terms of size and shape should match the desires of the patient as discussed in the pre-surgery consultation, at which time the risks should also be discussed.
Hospitalisation: 1 – 2 days.

Sports, the sauna and sunbeds etc. must be avoided for four weeks.

The risks are mostly related to CAPSULAR CONTRACTURE or HARDENING as described by BAKER. These possibilities are thoroughly discussed in a consultation before the procedure. The procedure is performed under full anaesthetic. Pain is extremely rare and is easily treated, should it occur.
 
 

Breast firming

Hormonal influences cause changes in the volume of the breasts during the course of a woman’s life. Both the mammary tissue and the fat volume fluctuate. This causes sagging or pendulous breasts which often leads to reduced feelings of self-worth. In this procedure, the breasts are firmed – the end result (firming, shaping) is dependent on the initial situation, the desires of the patient and the possibilities that present themselves. The surgeon strives to achieve the most feminine shape possible using the tissue available.

Sometimes pronounced asymmetry of the breasts is present. Pronounced sagging of the breasts with an absence of tissue substance, retracted nipples, or for example exceptionally large areola and/or hyperplasia may also be problematic. All these conditions are discussed thoroughly with the patient in advance, with the goal of achieving an aesthetic, feminine shape of the breasts. Techniques that are used so as to retain the sensitivity of the breasts, and possible breastfeeding problems in the case of younger women, are also discussed.

Only the quality of the scars is not in the hands of the surgeon. Even with the highest level of effort in terms of technique – and using exactly the same technique – the quality of the scars is different in each and every patient. As already stated, this has to do with the genetics (DNA) of the patient. A perfect technique provides the best possible basis for optimal scar formation, but unfortunately, it does not guarantee it.

Hospitalisation: 1 – 2 days
Sports, sunbeds, sunshine etc. must be avoided for four weeks. Generally pain free.
 
 

Breast reduction

Large breasts that are too heavy can become a real burden in the truest sense of the word: Pain in the neck and backache, in certain cases eczema in the folds of the breasts, etc. are just a few of the symptoms – not to mention the psychological aspect. The breasts must be attractive and sensitive, and in a certain age-group, breast-feeding must still be possible. Thanks to modern techniques, all this is possible with very pleasing results!

The only aspect that cannot be predicted is the possibility of hypertrophy or other quality-related problems of the scar tissue which occurs occasionally, despite perfect suturing and the best suture materials.
Nevertheless, most women who formerly suffered under the effects of too-heavy breasts are generally pleased with the results and a “heavy burden” is taken from them both literally and figuratively.
Hospitalisation: 2 – 3 days.
General anaesthetic. Usually pain-free.
