Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation with implants is the most common cosmetic procedure for women. The reasons for a breast augmentation varies but many women feels that their breast are disproportionate to the rest of their body.

Breast augmentation is also performed as reconstructive surgery for breast cancer survivors.

The treatment process

1. Patient selection
As a doctor, daring to say: “I do not do this”, can be the most important thing. Sometimes the best surgery is the one that is not performed.

2. Proportional
The right implant for the right person, correctly placed, gives the right results – The golden ratio.

3. Planning
Everything follows a schedule. Nothing happens by chance, everything is done for a reason. Both drawing and implant selection.

4. Performance
To perform an optimal surgical flow where everyone knows their task, before, during and after surgery

5. Post-operative
Doctors, healthcare professionals and patients take responsibility after the operation, for best results, with follow-ups and guarantees.

Implant

There are many breast implants on the market. Victoriakliniken only use cohesive silicone gel, also known as ‘gummy bear’ implants. There is textured and Nano-textured coating on the surface of the implants.

Our most frequently used implants are round and “Ergonomix” from the manufactured Motiva, Establishment Labs. These implants have a nano-textured surface coating that yet feels smooth to the touch, a difference that is noticeable when compared to textured implants from other manufacturers. Motiva implants are very popular amongst patients and professionals alike as they feel and move like natural breasts.

Since 2005 we have also used micro-textured form stable anatomical implants from Mentor. They are included in the “CPG” (Contour Profile Gel) implant family group. They are a good alternative to use to correct asymmetries and for breasts that benefit from a bit of extra internal stability and structure.

The implants we use all have a lifetime guarantee from the
manufacturer, which means that they are replaced
free of charge if, for example, they break.

Method

The implant can be placed behind and over the breast muscle. The incision is placed in the crease of the breast, also known as inframammary fold. This approach gives minimal risk of complications and best chances for scar healing. The location of the incision makes it almost impossible to see the scars in years to come.

Your unique genetic proportions and personal goals determine the surgical approach and implant options

Operation

The surgery will be performed under general anaesthetic, which means you are asleep and won’t be able to feel any pain during the whole procedure. You will stay one night at our state of the art hospital and have full access to all our service and care. You will be discharged from the hospital the day after your operation.

Some swelling and discomfort is likely to occur and it usually peaks around day 2 or 3 and then starts to subside. The painkillers we prescribe for your healing journey will help you feel more comfortable. Your first post op check is at 3 weeks after the procedure, where we will monitor your results, inspect the incisions and remove any sutures. After 6 months you will have another post op check and we will then take your “after pictures”.

Following your 6-months check up we will offer you a post op check every other year for 10 years after your breast augmentation. We also provide you with a complimentary ultrasound scan of your breasts with our in-house Radiologist to thoroughly monitor your implants.

Risks and complication

As with all surgery there are associated risks and potential complications. Some risks are related to surgery itself such as swelling, redness, bleeding, pain or a reaction to anaesthesia. These are all quite common experiences in the first few weeks in the healing journey. Patients are given direct contact details to our medical team once discharged, should they want to discuss any post surgical concerns.

Here we list the most common long-term complications
that have to do with breast augmentation,
and the fact that a breast augmentation introduces a
foreign material into the body – the implant.

Capsular contracture

As when any implant is inserted into the body, such as with breast implants, an immune response will trigger the body to create a scar tissue around the foreign object. In some cases the collagen fibre tissue capsule shrinks and tightens and compresses the implant. This can make the breasts feel hard and give them a unnatural look, this condition is called capsular contracture.
The problem of capsule contraction around breast implants
has always existed and no clear cause has been established. In the 70’s,
they managed to reduce the risk by placing the smooth implants that were
then used deeper, under the large pectoral muscle. Later, in the 80’s,i
mplants were developed with an uneven, textured surface, which further
reduced the risk and again, with a relatively small risk of capsule contraction,
the implants could be placed both in front of and behind the pectoral muscle.

The following are believed to increase the risk of developing
capsule contraction:

  • Transmitted bacterial infection. Bacterial contamination and / or
    prolonged bacterial contamination of the implant casing can cause
    an inflammatory reaction, leading to shrinkage of the capsule.
  • Subglandular location. Breast implants placed above
    the muscle tend to have a higher frequency of capsule
    contraction, compared to breast implants placed below the muscle.
  • Infection. Capsule contraction seems to occur more often in connection with infections.
  • Serum (fluid formation). If you have had a serum,
    it may increase the risk of capsule formation.
  • Hematoma (bleeding). A hematoma can cause an inflammatory reaction,
    which can lead to capsule contraction.

Currently there is 10% risk of capsular contracture within 10 years after all breast augmentation that are performed around the world. Studies have shown that with the implant choice and method we use at Victoriakliniken we have a statistic below 5% risk of capsular contracture of the last 15 years.

The goal at Victoriakliniken is to have a zero risks of capsular contracture, which we actively are working on. Our efforts have brought us to today’s statistic of 2-4%.
You can read more about this in our statistics section.

Capsule contraction can be surgically remedied by so-called
capsule cleavage, which is usually performed no earlier than six
months after the breast augmentation operation. However, it is important
to remedy a capsule contraction as soon as possible as otherwise the tissue
around the implant will gradually thin out. There is a 50% risk that
a new capsule contraction will occur despite this surgery.
