This surgical procedure is performed using breast implants to enhance the size and shape of your breasts profile. The most common reasons for breast augmentation include enhancing breast size when women feel that their breasts are too small or not in proportion with their overall body contour. And the improvement of breast shapes for women who have sagging or have lost skin elasticity (a reason that frequently involves breast lift surgery, too). Breast augmentations can also correct minor asymmetries.
The operation is performed under general anaesthetic. Surgery planning begins with an overall evaluation to ensure you are healthy enough. You must be honest about your medical history. This includes information about any medical conditions, drug allergies, smoking habits and medications that you currently take. It is important for you to provide complete information. You also have to undergo a mammogram or ultrasound examination and take baseline blood tests and in some cases an ECG.
There are a lot of different techniques. An incision can be made either underneath the breast, just above the crease, around the areola or within the armpit. Unless the breasts are sagging, we prefer the inframammary incision, which is placed in the natural fold beneath your breast.
Your doctor will decide which incision technique (placement location) is best for you based on your goals, breast type and other factors. You can have your implants placed above the muscle (subglandular) or below the muscle (subpectoral).
We use only textured silicone-gel implants. Gel-filled breast implants have an elastic silicone rubber shell and are filled with cohesive silicone gel.
The body type and breast goals are personal from woman to woman. Each woman is unique in her form. That’s why we offer You a broad range of implants with a design for your body type and breast augmentation or enlargement goals. In addition to silicone gel choices a woman’s implant is based upon breast width, projection, and volume.
There are 2 basic shapes of breast implant to choose from: round or anatomical. Some people may call anatomical implants “tear-drop”, “contoured” or “shaped” implants. Anatomical implants are meant to mimic the slope of a natural breast. Some plastic surgeons and women feel that the anatomical implants reflect a more mature breast.
We will discuss the procedure in detail with you during your consultation. The consultation includes an explanation of the surgical procedure, risks and possible complications associated with the surgery, and what to expect after surgery such as possible post-operative side effects and pain management. The consultation also include an evaluation of what would be the right breast implant size, shape, placement and incision site for you based on your personal goals for surgery, and a thorough and realistic review of your expectations. You will also be shown many pre and post-operative photographs of other patients previous breast augmentations performed by our surgeons. We will answer all your questions. A consultation takes 1 – 2 hours.
Once you know that breast augmentation is right for you, you may schedule surgery several days or weeks from the time of your consultation to assure you have had enough time to understand and accept all aspects of the operation.
The surgery is done as an inpatient in Estonia´s finest private hospital which provides round the clock care. Our patients have full board and rooms with all comforts (toilet, shower, TV, alarm clock). We offer our customers a complete package. We arrange the round-trip ticket between Helsinki and Tallinn, transport from the ferry port to the hospital and back. The price also includes 1 night at the hospital,, complete care, anesthesia, surgery, medications and aftercare services performed by our co-operation partners, such as counseling, removal of sutures and follow-up care.
You will meet your plastic surgeon at the hospital. Plastic surgeon Jyri Kullamaa performs breast operations. They are his area of expertise as well as face procedures. The surgeon will examine your breasts, mark the position of the implant pockets and explain which surgical technique is most appropriate for you. The operation takes place shortly after your discussion with the surgeon. It is very important not to eat or drink anything (not even water, gum or mints) for a minimum of 6 hours prior to surgery. The surgery takes one hour to complete. When surgery is completed, you will be taken into a recovery area where you will continue to be closely monitored. You will be provided with effective medication for postoperative discomfort and pain. Usually patients spend one (1) night under observation. On the first postoperative day the plastic surgeon will check the operated area. Everyone heals differently. Some discoloration and swelling will occur initially, but most residual swelling will resolve within a month.
The sutures will be removed about 10 days after surgery. The follow-up appointment is 6 month postoperative. After breast augmentation surgery, it is often possible to return to work within 2-10 days, depending on your job and the technique (if the implant have been placed below the muscle, you might have severe pain for several days). You cannot exercise for 4 weeks after surgery. The procedure requires a supportive bra, which is provided from the hospital. You have to wear it for 4 week after surgery. Please follow the postoperative instructions which you will be given in written form.
For the best results, Plastikakirurgia Finest advises every customer to purchase a second support bra from the Nagor implant import company. They can be bought from the importer’s online store . It is important to invest in the correct support garment.
Our co-operation partners offer our patients safe postoperative care, such as suture removal, counseling and follow-up appointments.
As with any surgery, breast augmentation does have some risks and complications associated with it. The complications are rare, but for safety reasons, all our patients get a mobile phone number, from where our patients can reach us anytime. In Helsinki we have a co-operating surgeon, who is able to provide additional check-ups if needed and to prescribe any additional medication if so required
Regardless of the age of the implant, the manifactor provides product replacement in the event of a deflation or rupture due to loss of shell integrity. It automatically applies to all recipients of silicone filled breast implant products.
When a foreign object like a breast implant is placed into the body, the body naturally forms a capsule or scar tissue around the object. Capsular contraction is not caused by the surgeon or the implant. Sometimes this capsule or scar tissue can contract, which is known as Capsular Contracture and is the most common complication with women with breast implants. There are varying grades (Baker grade I-IV) of Capsular Contracture, from the implant feeling slightly firm to the implant becoming hard and distorted in shape. Capsular contraction can happen at any time. Capsular contraction is often treated by removing or replacing of the implant. Capsular contraction may happen again after this additional surgery.
We offer our patients a capsular warranty for capsular contraction. GCA Comfort Guarantee automatically applies to all Nagor silicone-filled breast implants. Nagor implants has a lifetime warranty against rupture of the implant or severe capsular contracture (Baker grade 3-4).
The price of breast augmentation with round implants is 3 800 €. Breast augmentation with anatomical implants costs 3 950 €.
The price includes everything except the examinations that are required prior the surgery.
