Breast surgery in Barcelona may includethe following procedures:
Breast augmentationis a surgical operation designed to change the shape, contour, and size of the breast. First, a silicone base (prosthesis) is placed under the mammary gland (submammary plastic) or under the pectoral muscle (subpectoral plastic). After that, the prosthesis is filled with solution. The solution expands, filling the space and enlarging the mammary gland. Breast augmentation procedure usually lasts from one to two hours and is performed under local and sedative anesthesia. Submammary plastic is a simpler way to install a breast implant, while subpectoral plastic reduces the risk of complications, such as capsular contracture and skin ripples (waviness of skin).
The cost of breast augmentation in Barcelona is about 4500–5000 Euros.
A breast lift in Barcelona can be performed along with breast augmentation or reduction procedures. During the operation (mastopexy), the plastic surgeon lifts the mammary gland and removes the sagging tissues in the breast. It is not always necessary to insert implants when performing the breast lift procedure, but rather depends on the physiology of the breasts and the patient’s expectations. If the mammary gland has significantly lost its volume due to changes caused by age or after pregnancy and breastfeeding, the doctor may suggest inserting an implant.
Breast reductionis a surgical procedure in which the size of the breast is reduced by removing breast tissue. Thus, the breast becomes harder and lighter. If desired, the procedure involves reducing the areola of the nipple. The operation lasts from two to four hours. Currently, various techniques for breast reduction are possible in Barcelona, but normally the plastic surgeon makes several vertical and horizontal cuts around the areola and thereby removes parts of the breast tissue.
Where to insert breast implants in Barcelona
Breast implants are prostheses applied to alter the size, shape, and contour of the breasts. Implants can be silicone liquid or gel, solid implants similar to plastic, or saline (physiological) implants, which consist of a silicone base filled with solution. Some clinics use the recently developed cohesive silicone gel prostheses. The fracture or leakage risk from this type of prosthesis is lower, and the plastic surgery procedure results often appear more natural. There are smooth, rough, round, and drop-shaped implants available. The choice of the implant material and shape depends on both the plastic surgeon’s advice and the patient's expectations.
