Breast enlargement with breast implants – Overview
Today, breast enlargement with breast implants is the top cosmetic surgery worldwide with about 1.8 million procedures performed in 2013 (source: ISAPS).
In fact, the statistics of breast enlargement in Spain show that demand for breast augmentation surgery is markedly in progress in Spain.
Such an increase can easily be explained if we consider the ever improved quality of breast implants (i.e. texture of the envelope and shape of the prostheses), the cohesivity of the silicone gel and the quite immediate possibility of a natural and long-term result with a safe, effective and low-risk technique.
1- Breast augmentation surgery in Spain – Procedures
Breast surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia.
Thus, a pre-op consultation with an anesthetist is conducted within 2 days before surgery.
It takes less than 2 hours for the procedure to be carried out by a specialist.
Breast implant surgery involves different kinds of techniques with either periareolar, inframmamary or transaxillary incisions. However. after assessing on the patient’s anatomy lines, the plastic surgeon will define the most appropriate option for each patient.
After a breast augmentation, patients usually stay overnight at the hospital.
2- Breast augmentation post op
After breast implants have been placed under the pectoral muscle, which is today the case for the vast majority of patients, a body aching sensation may arise, most intensely felt during certain movements.
This is the reason why a pain killer treatment is usually prescribed by the surgeon after the procedure.
Moreover, stiches will normally be removed ten days after surgery.
During the weeks following a breast enlargement procedure, the area treated will probably feel sensitive and remain swollen. Moderate bruises may eventually show for a while.
The plastic surgeon will normally recommend the use of a sports bra during a month or a month and a half after the surgery.
Operated patients are strongly advised to perform medical checks with a specialist after 1 month, 3 months and 6 months. Then, a yearly check will prove sufficient.
Final results of the plastic surgery will only show up after 3 to 6 months and, in case of a breast implants procedure, after a year.
3- Breast enlargement prices
Prices for breast augmentation range from 4.000 to 7.000 euros depending on the surgeon fees and on the type of implants used.
In Spain, at Vithas Xanit Hospital International, the price for breast implants is 4.200 euros.
4- Renewing breast implants
Breast implants are usually renewed after 10 to 15 years, though it is sometimes necessary to replace the implants before, in case of unexpected problems like an implant rupture, for example.
