What is breast mammoplasty
According to Wikipedia:
Breast mammoplasty is a plastic surgery on the mammary gland aimed at correcting the shape and / or volume. Mammoplasty can be performed to either enlarge or reduce the breast.
Women’s breasts are a symbol of beauty, motherhood and sexuality, a source of creative inspiration. Correct breast shape is an important criterion for women’s health, which plays a key role in intimate life. That is why many women are eager to change their lives.
What are the indications for mammoplasty
- Micromastia or hypoplasia of the mammary glands (small size of the mammary glands)
- Asymmetry of the mammary glands (acquired and congenital)
- Mastoptosis or prolapse of the mammary glands (as a result of breastfeeding and age-related changes)
- Mastectomy (breast amputation)
- The desire of the patient
- Cosmetic defects
- Gynecomastia (male breast augmentation)
What are the types of mammoplasty?
Our experienced plastic surgeons perform all types of mammoplasty – breast augmentation, reduction and correction.
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Breast reduction
- Correction of nipples
- Non-surgical mammoplasty (lipofilling)
Breast augmentation: augmentation mammoplasty (endoprosthetics)
Augmentation mammoplasty includes breast arthroplasty and breast lipofilling. The main advantage of breast augmentation: the creation of harmonious shapes and long-lasting results. Modern endoprostheses or breast implants take root well and keep the main female forms for a long time.
Breast lift (mammopexy and mastopexy)
Mastoptosis is a loss of shape and elasticity of the breast. It is especially typical for adulthood and for the postnatal period. One of the best ways to correct ptosis is mastopexy.
Gigantomastia is quite common. With gigantomastia, the chest can be greatly enlarged. Excessively large breasts create constant stress, discomfort and even pain for their owner. The patient suffers from regular pain and curvature of the spine.
One of the significant disadvantages of the reduction is the possibility of suppressing the milk ducts. In the future, this will make breastfeeding impossible. However, an experienced plastic surgeon tries to prevent this possibility and correct the nipple areola without injuring the ducts.
Reduction is also performed to correct gynecomastia in men.
Correction of nipples or nipple-areola complex
Light plastic surgery to correct the nipple areola. It is performed as an independent mammoplasty or in combination with other types of breast augmentation.
Non-surgical breast augmentation is possible thanks to lipofilling. That is, breast augmentation occurs at the expense of the patient’s own adipose tissue. Donor fat can be removed from the patient’s buttocks, thighs and abdomen.
The undoubted advantage of such an operation is the absence of an operation. Adipose tissue is injected through punctures. The downside is that you can increase the breast by no more than 1 size during the procedure.
What is breast arthroplasty?
Endoprosthetics of the mammary glands is augmentation mammoplasty. That is, this is a plastic surgery aimed at correcting the shape and increasing the volume of the mammary glands with the help of endoprostheses. Breast endoprostheses are also called breast implants.
Our specialists with many years of experience are successfully engaged in endoprosthetics of implants. We help women with flat breasts, with the problem of sagging breasts after pregnancy and as a result of age-related changes. And also for patients after surgical removal of the mammary gland – mastectomy.
Sergey Krysko is a leading plastic surgeon at Coollaser Clinic – mammologist with a great experience. He operated more than a thousand patients with various aesthetic problems of the mammary gland.
What are the types of augmentation mammoplasty?
Mammoplasty types differ in the way the breast implant is placed and the location of the incision for breast augmentation.
There are 3 incision methods for placing a breast implant:
- Submamal or chest method
The incision for placing the implant is made under the breast crease. The method is characterized by low trauma and minimal risk of complications.
Scar: In the postoperative period, a small scar remains in the fold.
- Periareolar way
Race cut relies on the projection of the lower edge of the nipple. Mainly performed for women who have already given birth.
Scar: scar after breast augmentation is invisible
Risks: Breastfeeding complications are possible in the future.
- Axillary method
The incision is located in the projection of the axillary fossa. This method is considered the most optimal. Requires careful training and high qualifications of the surgeon.
Scar: there is no scar in the area of the mammary glands.
Depending on the level of installation, the implant can be located:
- Subglandular (implant placement under the gland)
A breast augmentation implant is placed under the gland without peeling the pectoralis major muscle. As a rule, such an arrangement of endoprostheses is recommended for women who are actively involved in sports.
- Subpectoral (placement of an implant under the pectoral muscle)
Breast augmentation occurs due to an endoprosthesis, which is placed under the pectoral muscle. The implant bed is prepared under the pectoralis major muscle. This operation is recommended for thin patients with a thin layer of subcutaneous fat.
The pectoralis muscle as a layer smooths out the contours of the implant, which is not visible through the thin skin.
Who is breast augmentation with endoprostheses suitable for?
- Breast augmentation is suitable for almost all patients over 18 years of age.
- Micromastia or underdevelopment of the breast is not a direct indication for breast augmentation. Breast surgery aimed at reshaping and / or increasing the size helps thousands of women regain confidence in their own beauty.
- Endoprosthetics of the mammary glands is suitable for addressing age-related changes such as loss of volume, asymmetry or atrophy of the mammary glands. In this case, the surgeon will correct the shape and, together with the patient, select the desired size.
- Breast reshaping and augmentation is suitable for women after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
What are breast implants?
Breast implants that are used for breast augmentation vary in size and shape.
- Round shaped breast implants
Rounded breast implants resemble a hemisphere in appearance. Their advantage is that they give their owner a chic upper bust volume.
- Teardrop-shaped (anatomical) breast implants
Anatomical or teardrop implants completely duplicate the natural shape of the mammary glands. The volume of the upper pole is significantly lower than that of the lower pole.
Which breast implants are better: anatomical or round?
This question cannot be answered unequivocally, because round and teardrop-shaped implants with breast augmentation give different visual results. Experienced surgeons usually recommend the anatomical shape of the implant, which looks more harmonious on the body.
How are breast implants selected for breast augmentation?
The choice of an implant for breast augmentation is determined during the consultation process. In this case, the doctor takes into account all the anthropometric characteristics of the patients. After an objective examination, the doctor determines:
2.Size and shape of the chest
3.Structure of glandular tissue
4.Anatomical features of the pectoral muscle
As a result, the sizes of endoprostheses for breast augmentation are selected depending on the desired result and individual characteristics.
We use implants from different manufacturers, depending on the surgeon’s recommendations, the patient’s wishes, and also the price:
Polytech, Silimed Europe Gmbh
Mentor, McGhan Medical
Motiva, Establishment Labs
How mammoplasty is done?

Preparation for endoprosthetics of the mammary glands
Any plastic surgery and especially breast mammoplasty requires careful preparation on the part of the doctor and the patient. The surgeon prescribes a list of examinations that the patient must undergo before breast plastic surgery.
The exact list of necessary examinations and tests is given only by the surgeon after a personal consultation. This is due to the fact that some patients may need additional consultations of narrow specialists.
