Through an incision of a few centimetres, inthe fold of the breast or in the areola, we make a pocket where the implant is introduced, This implant can be placed, under the muscle or above. The result is a stylized figure, in harmony with your body, you will feel more beautiful, you will have more confidence in yourself and your quality of life will improve drastically.

There are various types of implants. Depending on the size, the implants can be divided into, types of round implants or types of anatomical implants.

Frequently asked questions

The pocket, which is the space where the implants are placed, can be made under or over the muscle. The decision depends on a lot of factors.

You can go to the beach or the pool as soon as the wounds are completely closed, which is usually after two weeks.

Breast prothesis last for many years. We have seen patients with prothesis of over 20 years of age and in perfect conditions. But you should know that although we use the best quality that exist on the market, they still need to be changed, they dont last a lifetime.

There are many types of implants, according to its surface and composition, but in general we tend to divide between round or anatomical. The round implants give more volume on the upper area and the anatomical give a more natural result. It all depends on the breasts of the patient, of the patients  tastes and preferences. Our plastic surgeons will explain, in your particular case, which type of result can be found wich each implant.

At the first consultation, which is free and non compromisal, you will speak with our doctors. They will ask a few questions about basic health background and you can comment about what type of result you would like, what type of chest you are looking for. They will explain the surgical technique, the types of implants, the risks, the benefits and the costs. You will be given test implants to try to see how you will look, so you leave the clinic knowing how the end result will be. This consultation, can be in person or by video phonecall. You are in no way obliged, nor pressured, to fulfill the surgery after this informative consultation. Our team of surgeons will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Dia de la cirugia

On the day of surgery

The breast augmentation surgery, is an intervention done under general aneasthetic and requires one nights stay in the hospital. You will be given a room upon arrival and then you will be taken to the operating theatre, where our doctors will speak with you and respond to any last minute questions. You will meet the rest of the surgical team, nurses, auxiliares etc. Photos and a video will be taken. We will mark the anatomy areas to be treated, they will explain once again where the incisions will be made. You will be given aneasthesia so there is no pain from the operated areas during your hospital stay. The organised incisions will be made and the pocket designed in accordance to the implant chosen. Once the hemostasis is done, the implant is placed and the wound closed. At this time we can use the laser Urgotouch so that the scar is less visible. The stitches are dissolvable so they do not need to be removed. Its normal for drainage to be fitted. You will leave the operating theatre with a compressive bandage so that your breasts inflame the least possible.

You will be accompanied by our team at all times, during your recuperation. You will have the compressive bandage as placed after the surgery which we will change at the next consultation, three or four days after surgery, and we will supply you with a sports bra which will need to be worn for the first month. You will need to take antibiotics and painkillers. Its normal that you may have some bruising which will disappear with the recommendations that we will give you. Our surgeons will tell you, how long before you can return to work. Also, when you can return to exercising or when you can drive again. Its better not to smoke until a few weeks have passed, as tobacco causes the scarring to take longer.
