The Breast / Breast augmentation
Breast volume may be insufficient, following limited development during puberty, or after pregnancy or weight loss. Dissatisfaction with breast size can lead to discomfort or a decrease in self-confidence.
An increase in volume involves cohesive silicone gel implants or lipofilling (injection of fat). Dre Schaepkens will explain you in detail these two surgical methods of breast augmentation, but today, she performs this surgery only by the technique of lipofilling. During this surgery, your own fat is used to add volume to your breasts.
This aesthetic surgery performed under general anaesthesia and in an outpatient setting is not covered by health insurance.
Regarding each treatment
After consultation and clinical examination, Dre Schaepkens van Riempst will discuss with you the possible treatment(s), each with its advantages, disadvantages and eventual complications. If appropriate, she will give you more information using sketches or pictures.
The final result of aesthetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery can often only be observed at one year after the procedure; during this time, the scars fade, the swelling decreases, the treated area becomes more harmonious and natural.
In the early postopertive period, Dre Schaepkens will see you regularly until healing is complete eventually followed by three monthly consultations during one year.
