Are you considering a breast augmentation? Then you are definitely not the only one. In the Netherlands, around 3,000 breast augmentation procedures are carried out per year. Perhaps you are not satisfied with the size of your breasts, or your breasts no longer have the firmness they had some years ago. Whatever the reason is, it is crucial that it is your wish to enlarge your breasts and that you do not feel pressured by your environment.
During the operation, a breast prosthesis is inserted in front of or (obliquely) behind the chest muscle. The implants are inserted through a cut in the crease under the breast. A cavity is created that is large enough for the breast prosthesis to fit properly. Breast augmentation surgery is performed under general anesthesia.
