Breast Enlargement (Augmentation)

Women’s bosom has been a symbol of beauty and womanliness. The shape, symmetry, and size of the breasts will naturally produce a significant effect on a woman’s psyche if a deviation occurs in her opinion or in the opinion of others.

Enlargement of the breasts by inserting implants is a very effective surgery, suitable for women with insufficiently developed breasts or when the mammary gland system is shedding and the skin is slightly loose, as may be the case after breast feeding or significant weight loss.

The optimal age limit for breast augmentation is generally 18 years, after the mammary glands are fully developed. It is recommended that breast augmentation only be performed when a woman does not plan to get pregnant any more, as pregnancy and breast feeding result in changes of volume, producing a negative effect on the outcome of the surgery. The implants do not influence the pregnancy in any way and they will not expose the fetus to any danger. It should be noted that a number of patients were able to breast-feed normally after a breast augmentation. However, complications may occur due to insufficient lactation.

Pre-operative Arrangements

  1. The first step, is to contact our Clinic and we will reply within 24 hours. If possible, it is helpful to send the photos of the body parts in question for the plastic surgeon to evaluate them. We respect every client´s privacy, therefore we ensure that the photos are always delivered straight to the plastic surgeon. Thus, the very first consultation with the plastic surgeon can happen via e-mail.

    The photos can be sent in the following ways:

    a. using our contact form placed on our website
    b. mailing them to the Clinic Rumunska 22, Praha 2, 120 00, CZ
    c. sending an MMS direct to the plastic surgeon’s phone +420 608 703 150.

    After receiving your photos and getting the plastic surgeon’s recommendation, we are able to give you the first available date of the operation or to confirm the date of your preference.
    Every client then receives (via email) detailed instructions and information about the particular plastic surgery operation, needed for planning.   
  2. It is recommended to get the pre-operative examination at the client’s local clinic, with the patient's GP. The Pre-operative Evaluation Form is sent to the client via e-mail. If necessary, the examination can be done at our Clinic here in Prague.
  3. Good planning includes: making allowances for time off work (usually 2-3 weeks depending on the operation and the nature of the client’s job); making arrangements with the client’s family to provide support and help in the recovery period (avoiding physically demanding jobs, important social events etc.); if needed (and possible), arranging for children care.
  4. A deposit of €300 is required one month prior to your scheduled operation date, sent together with the confirmation of your reservation. The account number shall be sent to you via e-mail. In the event of a sudden illness or unavoidable problem, your operation date can be re-booked for a more convenient time.
  5. One month prior the operation, do not use any medications containing acetylsalicyclic acid (such as Acylpyrin, Aspirin, Alnagon, Mironal etc.). It might increase bleeding during and after the plastic surgery.
  6. It is assumed that no acute illnesses have occurred in the period of at least 3 weeks prior to the planned plastic operation (a viral illness, a cold etc.). If so, it is necessary to inform the plastic surgeon.
  7. It is essential to remember to drink enough water (2-3 litres a day for min. three days prior to the operation) and to rest well the night before the operation. Nevertheless, no alcohol may be consumed the night before the operation and for six hours before the operation, do not drink, eat or smoke.
    During the process of the operation, you will receive antibiotics. Therefore we highly recommend that right after the operation, you start consuming certain dairy products (e.g. Actimel yoghurt milk and others containing life yoghurt culture).
  8. Wash your hair the day before the operation and do not put any facial lotion or make-up on the day of the plastic surgery. Any jewelry, including earrings, should not be worn.
  10. The clients staying in the suites arranged for by our Clinic enjoy the benefit of having their plastic surgeon in-house, as the Chief surgeon’s  consultation office is in the same building as the suites, and the Clinic itself is within 50 m distance.

Breast Enlargement Operation

Breast augmentation is performed under general anaesthetic and takes approximately 1-1,5 hours. An incision, approximately 4 to 5cm long, may be made in the crease of the underside of the breast, the armpit or lower edge of the areola. Most commonly, this will be in the crease of the breast; however, your surgeon will advise you on the most appropriate area for yourself.

Once the incision is made, the surgeon will create a pocket for the implant to lie in. This may be either beneath the muscle or beneath the breast tissue. Your size and shape will determine the outcome of the position of the implant and will be discussed fully at consultation with the surgeon. Following the surgery you will have stitches (these will be dissolvable) in place, covered with a dressing and a sports bra which will be provided by our Clinic.

In our Clinic, we use silicon implants by Polytech SILIMED, the best implants recently available in the martket. We have had a very good experience with these. At the present time, two basics implants are available, round or drop-shaped (in a full range of shapes and volumes). The implants may be inserted using three different techniques – the incision can be made in the axilla, around the areola or under the breast. A booklet entitled “Breast Implants”, produced by the Department of Health, is available from your clinic to accompany this information leaflet, and provides a full understanding of your breast implants.

Breast Enlargement Post-operative Period

Until your state of health stabilized, our medical staff will check on your every day after the operation, to ensure your healing is going well.

After this plastic surgery, patients stay at the clinic overnight and are usually released the next day, provided they feel fit enough. Before the patient leaves, the bandages are changed and the drains are removed. It is necessary to refrain from bathing and showering for the next 3 to 4 days. It is recommended to rest well and to sleep only on the back for 6 weeks after the operation, to avoid physical strain, especially lifting the arms up.

Until the your state of health stabilized, our medical staff will check on you every day after the operation, to ensure your healing is going well.

According to your surgeon’s instructions, our special bra and belt (provided by our Clinic) is to be worn 24 hours a day for up to 3 months after the operation.

After the operation, it is necessary to wear a top with buttoning or a zipper.

It is not recommended to wear things that have to be put on over your head. After the breast surgery, such movement of arms is not suitable. For 6 weeks after the operation, sleep on your back, not on the side. In 3 to 4 weeks, supposed the wound has healed as expected, the patient may begin applying the scar pressure massage.

The breasts are considered to be stable in 1-2 months after the surgery.

It is recommended to get a mammary clinic check up in 6 months after this plastic surgery.

November 2011
Breast Enlargement
Hi all,
I've been to Prague twice for different cosmetic procedures. The first was for a breast enlargement in 2006, which I went to Laderma clinic for, and the second procedure was for my ears being pinned back in Nov 2011, where I went to Bodies Beautiful.

Prague is so much cheaper than the UK for cosmetic procedures, hence why I've been there twice.

Laderma clinic was great, and I would recommend them to anyone. When you contact the clinic by phone or email you speak the staff in the clinic, unlike Bodies Beautiful. The care at Laderma was fab, the clinic was spotless and very high tech, the staff where very caring and the surgeon (Dr Cerna) was lovely. They have their own apartments near the clinic for your accommodation, and she even came to me to see me after my surgery rather than me going to her. The apartments are big, with a DVD player and films for you to watch, there was even a big pile of books in the hall for you to choose from.
I came back from having my ears done 3 weeks ago.. I used Bodies Beautiful Direct as Laderma was fully booked and I could only have time off in October from work, hence finding this clinic. The good points are that they are cheap and the communication to sort everything was really good. The company is based in the UK, so they just book you in and that's it pretty much. The bad points are that when you arrive you don't really have much of a connection with anyone if that makes sense. I didn't see anyone from the clinic until I went to the clinic on the Monday, they don't have apartments, so I booked into a hotel. This obviously didn't have DVDs etc, and the Prague TV has no English channels, so bare this in mind for recovery!! I met the surgeon at 9am, and had the surgery an hour later. I then went back to my hotel for the evening and returned the next day to have the dressings changed. The surgeon was nice, but there wasn't as much care as I had from the Laderma clinic, so would definitely go back to Laderma in future. The other bad point about this company is that I have had no contact with them since the surgery. The company emailed me loads before going and I was impressed with the communication, but I didn't receive one after the surely to ask how it went etc. I've also tried to contact them with a query as I was worried about my healing, and I've had no reply.. this has been two emails sent. It kind of feels that they have had my money now and they couldn't care less about me. Nice!

That's my opinion anyway, please feel free to ask any more questions guys.. I know how nerve racking this can all be!!
