What to expect?

Right after the operation, you may experience some muscle pain at the upper chest and in your back. Your breasts may also feel taut. It takes a few days for the breast implant to settle.
The healing process lasts at least 3-6 months. The final result will only be visible after this time.

If you have any concerns or questions, you are always welcome for a post-operative consultation. All our aftercare is free of charge. Don't hesitate to call us for an appointment, or you can book one online.

Type of Implants - We offer most brands of breast implants

Silicone breast implants

Modern cohesive silicone implants are safe. They have a strong, reliable shell and are filled with a solid silicone mass, which does not leak into the body if the shell ruptures. Silicone implants are soft and soft to the touch, they give the chest a very attractive shape and feel a bit more like natural breast tissue. There are different models, to be chosen during your consultation with the doctor: round or anatomical (tear-shaped), with an extra high, high, medium or low profile.

Hydrogel breast implants (water gel)

The hydrogel breast implant consists of a silicone shell filled with 3,7% carboxymethylcellulose and 96,3% physiological serum (water). The hydrogel prosthesis allows the breast to be x-rayed just like the salt-water prosthesis. Hydrogel implants are 100% biodegradable thus the body will naturally secrete the harmless fluid in case of leakage. With hydrogel implants, there is a higher risk of leakage because the prosthesis is likely to absorb some body moisture.

Salt water breast implants (saline)

It is possible to insert inflatable implants through a small incision (2-3 cm) that are then filled with a special saline solution (physiological serum). This serum is completely harmless and is passed out of the body in case of any leakage. The implants can be inserted in front of or behind the breast muscle.

Saltwater filled implants are not as supple as hydrogel or silicone implants and don't feel as soft. Hydrogel implants are a better alternative.
In any case, our surgeons always have your best interest at heart and will discuss all your options during your consultation.

Shape of the Breast Implant

Anatomical implants (teardrop implants)

Anatomically shaped implants, also called "teardrop implants", as well as round breast implants are widely used in breast enlargement surgery.

Teardrop implants have an anatomical shape. They are often used in reconstructive breast augmentation, such as after breast cancer for example. For aesthetic breast augmentation, our surgeons generally prefer round implants.

Round implants

Round shaped breast implants are softer and more natural to touch than the harder anatomical implants.

If your teardrop-shaped (anatomically breast implant) rotates over time, your breasts are no longer symmetrical. When a round-shaped implant rotates, there will be no change in aesthetic appearance.

The centre of gravity of an anatomical implant lays lower than its centre (middle point). The danger is that over time your breast will be sagging.

The most beautiful and natural shape of the breast can be achieved with round implants. Round prostheses create an anatomic, natural shape when you are standing up. Your breasts will fall slightly outwards when lying down.

With round breast implants, the surgeon can create natural-looking, beautifully proportioned, breasts. The large availability of various sizes, diameters and degrees of projection offer great flexibility, to ensure the breast implant that fits you perfectly.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect? What is normal?
Muscle pain in the rib cage and in the back, pain and a burning or stabbing sensation in the wounds, swollen breasts, bruising and hematomas. You may feel more discomfort in one breast.
Which implant is best for me?
In consultation with your plastic surgeon, you determine which Monobloc Silicone SoftOne implant, in terms of shape, profile and volume will give the best results for you. We take your body shape and your wishes into account. You choose the shape and volume yourself.
How big are the scars?
A large incision is not necessary! Each prosthesis can be inserted through an incision measuring about 1.2 inch / 3 cm = Minimally Invasive Breast Implant Surgery. In consultation with the doctor, you determine yourself where the incision will be made: round the areola, in the fold under the breast or in the cavity of the armpit. A small incision round the areola or under the breast is the least visible in the long term, so that one can hardly tell that you have implants.
When will I be able to see the final result?
The healing process lasts at least 3-6 months. The final result will only be visible after this time.
Can a breast implant cause cancer?
No. No other type of implant (hip, knee, etc.) has been the subject of so much research to demonstrate its safety as breast implants have. Dozens of studies have been performed in multiple countries. Seven long-term studies have also been conducted that show that there is no connection between breast cancer, autoimmune diseases or system diseases.
Are silicone implants really safe?
It has never been scientifically proven that silicone breast implants cause breast cancer, rheumatism or immunity disorders. It is true that the prostheses used to be filled with a liquid silicone gel. If there is a tear in the implant's shell then the gel could leak out and spread into the body. Fortunately this was in the past!Modern silicone implants have a strong silicone wall and are filled with a firm silicone mass. If there is a tear in the wall the solid gel doesn't leak into the body.
How long can the implants stay in place?
Many women have had their original implants for more than 20 years. If you consider that the quality of present day implants has significantly improved, you can assume that the majority of patients benefit from their procedure for many years, even for the rest of their lives. Prostheses with a weaker shell are not used, not even if the patient insists on a cheaper alternative.
Are yearly check-ups necessary?
No. High quality breast prostheses carry less risk of complications. As a result, unless otherwised specified by the surgeon, a routine yearly check-up is unnecessary. If you are going to have a mammography, don’t forget to mention that you have breast implants.
Can I still breastfeed after a breast enlargement?
Yes. After a breast enlargement you are still capable of breastfeeding.
My breast makes a strange sound
It is possible that you will feel or hear a rustling if you touch your breast(s). This rustling is caused by air bubbles that are (still) present around the implant. The rustling will disappear by itself a few days after the operation.
