Beauty and harmony of the breast

Breast augmentation with prosthesis

There is no doubt about the great importance of breasts for corporal beauty, as they are a clear symbol of feminine identity. That is why mammoplasty operations, or breast surgery, are the most frequent.


The lack of breast development is resolved by using breast implants, although this operation varies depending on where and how they are placed. They can be situated behind the mammary gland, behind the pectoral muscles or under the pectoral fascia, depending on each individual case.

Implants can also be inserted through various entry points.

If this is done via the areola, only a very discrete scar remains as the incision is made just in the zone where the skin changes color. It can also be done from the armpit or from the fold formed under the breasts.

The most suitable option is chosen according to the characteristics of each individual case and according to the kind of implant.

Implants solve the problem satisfactorily and do not impede breastfeeding, although the breasts need to be massaged during the first few weeks after the operation to avoid any possible (albeit infrequent) hardening due to capsular contracture.

External ultrasound treatment, created in the research department of Clínica Planas, is also of great help in avoiding this complication.
