Breast Enlargement - Helping Nature Reach Fulfillment

Our experience at Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery shows: breast enlargements not only refer to just another body part – the breasts are an expression of personality, directly influencing one’s sense of self-value und emotional balance. That’s why women put such a great emphasis on harmonious proportions and an appealing relation between breasts and the rest of the body. But not all women are treated fairly by nature – many women suffer from having too small breasts. In such cases, a breast enlargement (also known as “breast enhancement” or “breast augmentation”) can lead to new self-respect and a higher quality of life.

Small breasts are often felt to be a flaw, even though they do not represent any drawback for the body. The contours of the breasts are important as well. Rounded and/or well-shaped breasts are regarded as ideals; by contrast, a lack in firmness – even as a result of pregnancy and breast feeding – may sometimes be experienced as a blemish. A breast enlargement conducted at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery can help offer women new self-confidence and quality of life.

At the same time, it’s important to safeguard the natural conditions. The ability for breast feeding, tactile sensitivity and healthy breast functions are at least as important as a feminine contour or even erotic charisma. It is necessary to talk about the real reasons before any corrective measures will be taken – weighing options and considering alternatives.

Once you’ve taken your decision in favour of surgery, please be assured that you are in the best hands with us here at Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery – we will treat you with all our experience, tact and appreciation, respecting your feelings and caring for your individual well-being in all regards.

FAQ on Breast Enlargement

How old does one have to be to get a breast enlargement?

A breast enlargement is possible for women 18 years or older, i.e. once they have reached legal age. In order to be able to conduct the operation, it is also important that the patient has a good health status.

Who may benefit from a breast enlargement?

A breast enlargement is suitable for any woman of legal age who wishes to have larger and well-shaped breasts. NB: A good health status is a pre-requisite. Contra-indications, i.e. reasons against a breast enlargement, can be an unclear mammal report, acute infections, or the age of the patient in case she is not yet 18 years old.

Which breast enlargement methods are there?

At the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we provide breast enlargement with implants or one’s own body’s fatty tissue. The implants may be positioned on top or underneath the pectoral muscle. Positioning is generally achieved via an axillary incision, i.e. a small cut in the armpit. Upon request, we also offer our patients breast fold incisions (inframammary incision). In an individual personal consultation, our doctors will discuss with you which breast enlargement method will best suit you and your needs.

How many cup sizes can a breast enlargement achieve?

On average, when using implants, the breasts can be enlarged by max. 2 cup sizes. When using fat transfer, the breast enlargement will as a rule achieve only 1 cup size. We’ll be happy to discuss with you during an individual consultation, which options for breast enlargement there are in your particular case.

Will a breast enlargement leave scars?

Thanks to the ancillary incision used by us at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we can realise breast enlargement with implants leaving only particularly discreet scars. In the case of breast enlargement by fat transfer, there are no scars, since the fat cells are injected into the breast using a thin hollow needle (canula).

What is important before a breast enlargement?

For 2 weeks before the breast surgery date, you should not take any blood-thinning medication such as Aspirin. We also advise you to have your gynaecologist check your breasts beforehand. 

How is a breast enlargement carried out?

Prior to the breast surgery, we will discuss your wishes and expectations during a detailed consultation appointment at our Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Moreover, we will provide comprehensive information about how the operation itself will take place and which risks may occur. Then we will define the best-suited mode of operation as well as the size, shape, and positioning of the implants.

The breast enlargement operation itself will last about 1–3 hours, depending on the chosen method, and is carried out with general anaesthesia.

After the operation, you will stay 1–2 days with us at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. In order to promote healing, it is necessary to wear a special supportive bra after the operation. Stitch removal will take place after about 14 days. Also, you will be presentable again after about 2 weeks. You should not do any hard work or perform any kind of sports for about 6 weeks.

What is important following a breast enlargement?

After the breast augmentation, it is necessary to wear a special supportive bra. After the operation, you will stay 1–2 days with us at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. About 2 weeks after the operation, you will be presentable again. At that time, the stitches are removed as well. You may not do any hard work or perform any kind of sports until after about 6 weeks.

When will I be presentable again after a breast enlargement and will be able to do sports?

About 2 weeks after the breast enlargement, you will be presentable again. You should not perform any kind of sports until after about 6 weeks.

Which risks are there with regard to a breast enlargement?

Like with any other operation, a breast enlargement also comes with the usual operation risks such as wound healing issues, infections, or bleeding. At our Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, you will be treated exclusively by qualified medical specialists with long-standing experience, so that we are able to reduce these risks to a large extent. In addition, in case of breast enlargement with implants, a so-called capsular fibrosis may occur, a foreign-body reaction.

Does a breast enlargement hurt?

In order to alleviate any pain, you will receive pain medication after the breast correction. During the first days after the operation, our patients normally perceive a slight tension which, however, can also be alleviated by taking pain medication.

Will the breast still feel real after a breast enlargement?

In particular by positioning the implant underneath the pectoral muscle, we are able to achieve especially natural results, since the breast implants can hardly be felt that way. But you will need a bit of patience after the operation, since the breast area will first be swollen for a while and will thus feel harder to the touch. A breast enlargement by fat transfer will also feel very natural.

How often do breast implants need to be changed?

The service life of breast implants depends on individual parameters and varies from patient to patient. There is no general rule as to the service life of implants.

Will the health insurance cover the cost of a breast enlargement?

A breast enlargement is an aesthetic operation so that the costs will as a rule not be covered by the health insurance. If, however, the breast surgery is undertaken due to a medical necessity, e.g. a breast reconstruction following a bout of cancer, then the health insurers will as a rule take over the costs.

What are the costs for a breast enlargement?

The costs for a breast enlargement in our Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery start at 6,000 €. Depending on the treatment effort, these may, however, vary from patient to patient. We will be happy to prepare an individual cost calculation for you during a personal consultation.
