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.

Surgery duration

1 hour


1 day


1 week








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.


Once the mammoplasty is done, the patient should stay at the clinic on observation 24 hours.


All mammoplasty operations require general anesthesia


For a few days following surgery, it is advisable to avoid any sudden movement that might affect the chest area.

Post-operative care, as well as any particular scarring that may result, are commented in detail by the specialist in each case.


Expert opinion

Insufficient breast volume is a source of psychic discomfort for many women, since it does not help them to feel the complete development of her femininity. It is a real pleasure for the patients to achieve or recover the women’s own status. I often hear words like: "Now I can already go with a t-shirt or a top without a bra" or "the bikini suits perfectly now".

The aesthetic result of breast augmentation surgery is excellent, since the breast final volume can be predicted by the doctor’s prior assessment. After the process of scarring and inflammation, breasts will have a natural firmness and consistency. In addition, if you work in an office with a computer, or perform something similar, you can go back to the daily routine a few days after surgery. For professions requiring movement involving breast or need some effort, such as hairdresser, masseuse or pediatric nurse, it is convenient to wait for 7 to 10 days after surgery.

Patient’s satisfaction with the results is usually very good, since breast recovers its shape, turgidity and firmness. After surgery, itn will evolve naturally with the age, the changes in weight, and the skin will show that time goes by.
