Frequently asked questions

Breast Surgery Questions

Considering breast augmentation, breast lift or breast reduction in the Czech Republic. Answers to your questions are here.

Are the doctors you work with certified?

arrow-procedures

Yes, the doctors we partner with are board-certified plastic surgeons who perform a full range of cosmetic surgery procedures. Some of whose experience spans over twenty years. They perform anywhere from 20-30 procedures per week.

Are there age limits for breast augmentation or reduction?

arrow-procedures

There really aren’t any set age limits for surgery. However, you must be at least 18 years of age as the breasts are still developing into your early twenties.

Your BMI is important, it mustn’t exceed 35 for implants or reduction.

As there isn’t a hard age limit, you should be aware cosmetic surgery is riskier with age. Also, important to note, as the breasts lose elasticity over time women typically elect implants with a lift. It’s important to bear in mind that you may be advised to have a mammogram prior to surgery as breast cancer is a higher risk with age.

Are there any associated risks or side effects with breast augmentation?

arrow-procedures

The most common risks include infection or complications due to the surgery, such as breakage and leakage, breast or nipple numbness, chronic breast pain and capsular contracture. There is also a possibility that you may require additional surgery, particularly if cosmetic expectations are not met.

Can I pay by credit card or cash?

arrow-procedures

Yes, we accept VISA, VISA Electron, MasterCard and Maestro credit cards. However, our partner clinics do not accept American Express. Please verify that the highest limit of your credit card will allow payment for the surgery. We also accept cash in only these currencies CZK and EUR.

Do you offer any natural breast enhancement options?

arrow-procedures

Yes, we offer auto-augmentation which utilise your own tissue and excess skin to add fullness and volume to your breasts. We also offer fat transfer which is augmentation done with your own body fat which is taken via liposuction from another body area (buttocks, stomach).

How long are the implants expected to last?

arrow-procedures

B-Lite implants offer a lifetime guarantee as they use highly advanced, lighter material that is not influenced by the sagging effects caused by aging.

On average manufacturers estimate 10 years for their life expectancy. However, this can vary per person. In some cases, implants can last up to 25 years, while others may need to be replaced as early as two years in case there is a problem such as a fold or rupture.

How many nights will I stay at the clinic?

arrow-procedures

For the majority of breast surgery procedures only 1-2 nights at the clinic are required.

What are the standards of implants in the Czech Republic?

arrow-procedures

Every medicinal product and implant used in the Czech Republic has been approved by the State Institute for Drug Control, which carefully monitors quality and in case of doubt will issue a regulation banning the use of the drug or implant. At the present time, the use of textured implants is considered safe and it is not necessary to be concerned about using them or having them removed.

What if my breasts are asymmetrical?

arrow-procedures

In the event your breasts are extremely asymmetrical, different implant sizes will be used to even out this.

If there is only a minor discrepancy as is the case with most women to have a slight asymmetry, the doctor will shape the breast prior to inserting the implant which would be the same size.

When can I return to normal activities?

arrow-procedures

Patients are encouraged to begin walking immediately after surgery. You should be able to resume non-strenuous activities within 7 days. However, women should not perform any intense physical exercise for at least 6 weeks following surgery. Exercise includes jogging, biking and weightlifting, essentially anything which would put too much strain on healing.

When is the ideal time of year to have breast surgery?

arrow-procedures

You may undergo surgery at any time throughout the year. However, bear in mind if you will have the surgery in the summer months expect that you will not be able to swim or sunbath as there is a special contouring bra which must be worn for 6 weeks.

Where is the clinic located?

arrow-procedures

We work with several partner clinics which are all centrally located in Prague and easily accessible via public transport.

Which types of implants do you offer?

arrow-procedures

We offer only silicone implants, Polytech and Motiva which are German brands. We also offer FDA approved Mentor, B-Lites (EU CE mark) and Nagor (UK brand).
