Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation

One of the determining characteristics of beauty, femininity and sexuality of the female body is the breast. Whatever the personal reasons might be, many ladies would like such an intervention to give them a bigger, fuller and beautifully shaped bust.
Breast augmentation is a procedure with 40-year history. The first cases date back at the beginning of 1960s in America. Upon the breast augmentation procedure an incision is made in the skin – in the infra-mammary fold, around the areola or in the armpit. Then the surgeon makes place for the implant – it is located under the mammary gland or under the breast muscle. The operation is envisaged to restore the lacking volume being a result from rapid weight loss, delivery and breast-feeding or sagging with age.

Breast augmentation can be undertaken at any age after the process of development and breast maturity have already finished but not earlier than 18 years of age. Besides the positive aesthetic result of the breast augmentation intervention, our experience shows us that our patients demonstrate considerable psychological superiority after this intervention, higher self-esteem and self-confidence. In addition, we can say that the surgical techniques and implants are constantly improved and this guarantees higher safety and reliability of the intervention.

The Procedure

The breast augmentation intervention is undertaken in order to provide the lacking balance in the body’s contours by improving the shape and size of the breast. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Emil Georgiev places silicone based implants under the tissues of the mammary gland and even under the breast muscle guaranteeing a more consistent and natural contour of the body.
The methods for placement and positioning of the implant depend on the individual anatomy, recommendations and preferences of the surgeon. The incisions are made in places where they are slightly visible and at the same time they provide a good vision for the surgeon – in the inframammary fold, around the areola оr in the armpit.
