Get beautiful, voluptuous and symmetrical cleavage with a natural-looking and youthful shape. At Geoplasty Plastic Surgery, we offer the most contemporary and reliable treatments and techniques for breast augmentation, using silicone implants, fat or both, which let you highlight your figure and boost your confidence.
What breast augmentation is
Breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic procedure. The main objective is:
- To improve body proportions, mainly of the upper body.
- To get natural breasts, without exaggerations.
- To boost your confidence and femininity.
There is a range of reasons that people decide to get breast augmentation surgery:
- Small or aplastic breasts.
- Breasts of different size and shape (anisomastia).
- Breasts that have lost volume after pregnancy, breastfeeding or massive weight loss.
- Previous breast augmentation that requires revision.
The size of the implant you select should suit your body measurements (height, weight, chest width, cleavage gap, etc.) and not the size you may desire.
Dr Georgopoulos will select the right breast implant for your body type and get the size you desire, with a natural and younger-looking shape, as well as lasting results.
Breast augmentation may be performed on adult women of any age.
How breast augmentation is performed
The breast augmentation procedure is performed under general anaesthesia.
Before the procedure, a detailed medical history is obtained, and preoperative check-up and imaging tests of the breast are performed.
There are various techniques for breast augmentation, which are continuously improving and evolving. A discussion with the doctor always takes place beforehand and the necessary simulation is performed with special external implants, so that Dr Georgopoulos may be able to understand your desires and offer you an idea of the end result.
Breast augmentation with silicone implants
It is the most popular and safe technique in breast augmentation. Over the last few years, it has been perfected and offers excellent results.
It involves inserting a silicone implant, round or tear-drop shaped for an even more natural result.
The placement of the silicone implants and the incision site depend on your physique. The incision is performed mainly either under the breast (inframammary fold) or beneath the lower areola. The surgical scars are less visible in these two options.
Dr Georgopoulos uses the incision to lift the underlying breast tissue and form a pocket for the breast implant placement. The correct placement of the implant and the proper positioning of the breast on top provide pleasing aesthetic results.
The breast implants may be placed in 3 levels:
- Under the mammary gland (subglandular).
- Under the pectoralis major muscle.
- Under the fascia of the pectoralis major muscle (subfascial).
The final decision depends on the patient’s clinical condition and is determined after discussion with the doctor.
The ultimate aim of all the available options is that Dr Georgopoulos provides natural-looking and lasting results.
The implants we use are manufactured by US company Mentor and are the best choice worldwide.
Breast augmentation with fat
Over the last few years, this technique is becoming all the more popular. It is also called breast augmentation with stem cells, due to their high concentration in fatty tissue.
The procedure includes:
- Extensive liposuction from various parts of the body for harvesting fat.
- Fat processing to remove unwanted components.
- Injection of fat to the breast, with a special technique.
The stem cells in the fat help it get integrated into the breasts, resulting in the development of blood vessels around them and, by extension, in the desired breast augmentation.
With modern techniques and technology, fat viability may reach to 90%.
The benefits of breast augmentation with fat are:
- Autologous tissue is used instead of a foreign body.
- Women benefit from a liposuction.
- There are no incisions.
- The total postoperative recovery time is shorter.
- It is the most common supplementary method in breast revision surgeries.
The disadvantage of this method is that the procedure has to be repeated more than once for acquiring the desired volume.
The use of a breast enlargement pump for 3-4 weeks prior to surgery is the solution to this problem for breast enhancement. This is the BRAVA breast enhancement device, which is covered with clothing.
In one session, it may increase the amount of the autologous fat to be grafted to the breast and adjust to its new environment, without being absorbed.
Breast augmentation with silicone implant and fat
It is the latest development in breast augmentation surgery and the most popular technique for Dr Georgopoulos.
One surgery includes:
- Inserting a silicone implant, in most cases under the pectoralis major muscle.
- Harvesting and placing fat in the breast.
This allows the implant to increase the breast volume and shape adequately to a point that fat grafting alone could not provide.
Moreover, fat grafting provides a natural appearance. Dr Georgopoulos’ ultimate aim is to create natural-looking breasts all around, with a beautiful and voluptuous bosom, symmetrical under boob and well-defined side boob.
