Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that aims to increase the size of the breasts and is now the most common plastic surgery procedure worldwide. This is typically achieved by placing an insert into the breast through a small incision.

The insert is placed under your own tissue and will show a natural part of your own breast. In certain cases, the increase in size can be achieved without the use of an implant in a procedure called “fat transfer”.

By removing a quantity of your own fat from specific areas using the liposuction technique, it can then be processed and placed directly on the breast to achieve the desired result.

implant selection

An important part of our discussion will include the choice of the breast size you wish to have after surgery. Your own desires will be discussed in relation to your body type.

During the discussion you will have the opportunity to try different types and sizes of inserts from our samples, so you will have an idea of the final result that will help you in your final choice.

The latest generation of implants that are now used are safe and minimize the risks that existed with the use of the older ones. The choice of quality is always based on patient safety and the desire to achieve the best possible result.

Depending on the case, round, anatomical (tear) or ergonomic inserts can be chosen. The selection of inserts is made with strict criteria and without any compromise on issues concerning their quality and reliability.


These inserts have the specific surface that resembles the smooth surface but has a subtle roughness (nanotextured).

This roughness created on the surface of the implant uses Nanotechnology rather than traditional industrial methods with salt or sugar, making it safer.


Another part of the discussion will include the level at which the insert will be placed. Depending on the situation it could be placed:

  • πάνω από τον θωρακικό μυ (κάτω ακριβώς από το παρέγχυμα του μαστού)
  • πάνω από τον θωρακικό μυ αλλά κάτω από την περιτονία του (λεπτός υμένας που καλύπτει την επιφάνειά του)
  • κάτω από τον θωρακικό μυ
  • μέρος του κάτω και το υπόλοιπο πάνω από τον μυ (dualplane)


The choice is individualized depending on the particular characteristics of the patient and the desired implant.


The position of the incision depending on the specific anatomy, the type and size of the implant can be either around the nipple (perithecal approach) or under the breast (submastia). In this way, the resulting incisions are “hidden” either in natural folds or in areas where the skin colour darkens and becomes less visible.

The use of new techniques avoids the undesirable effects of older methods, such as the inability to breastfeed or the loss of sensation in the nipple area and achieves a much more natural result that does not betray the fact that an operation was performed.

The duration of the surgery is 1 to ½ hours and is performed under general anesthesia.
