Frequently asked questions

What’s the best type of implant for breast enlargement?

There are many different brands of breast implant, and different types within those. What you need to remember is that each woman is different, and there is no one size fits all. Essentially, there are two kinds of shape you will encounter during your consultation period – round or regular implants, and teardrop or anatomical implants. As the names suggest, round implants maintain a curvaceous, round shape whether you’re lying down or standing up. Teardrop implants are teardrop shaped and so they mainly add volume to the lower half, just like natural breasts. One of Dr. Rotsaert’s preferred options is the Ergonomix Motiva implant. This is a highly responsive implant that behaves very much like natural tissue. They hold their roundness when you’re lying down, and form more of a teardrop shape when you’re standing. It’s the best of both worlds.

Will my breasts look natural?

In the hands of a skilled breast enhancement specialised Plastic Surgeon like Dr. Veerle Rotsaert, your breast augmentation results will be as imperceptible and natural as possible. Dr. Rotsaert spends copious amounts of time deciding on the perfect implants size, placement of the implant and approach to surgery, in order to determine and ensure the optimum result. The best possible results can only be achieved when the surgery is personalised to each patient’s individual desires and conditions. Dr. Rotsaert will ensure that you get the best advice after your surgery for the best possible outcome. Dr. Rotsaert is a suture expert and uses the finest and most precise sewing technique is order to minimize any scarring and ensure speedy fading.

How much scarring is left after my breast enlargement surgery?

Like they say: many roads lead to Rome, likewise many surgeons will use different approaches. Dr. V usually positions the scars within the fold under the breast, or the ‘inframammary fold’, so that they are hidden as much as possible. The sutures we use are dissolving sutures, so your body processes them naturally over time – no need for stitches. The scars left by breast implants do not run the whole length of the breast, and tend to be thin. Remember, scar healing is a process – scars can change colour over the course of the healing, and it may take up to 18 months before they reach their maximum diminishing point.

How long is breast augmentation recovery?

Advice might differ on a case-by-case basis. Generally speaking no heavy lifting, pushing, pulling or cycling are allowed for a very strict 4 weeks after surgery. After this you can gradually start doing all these things again. Running is strictly prohibited for 6 weeks, same goes for heavy lifting.

How often should breast implants be replaced?

Breast implants are not designed to last forever, but are regarded as a permanent or semi-permanent enhancement, and they have a lengthy “shelf life”. It’s good practice for implants to be removed or replaced roughly every 10-15 years. Depending on changes women may see in their bodies over the years, some like to revisit sooner than that. However, if after 1O years everything is still looking and feeling perfectly fine and your surgeon is still happy you can leave them as they are, just make sure you get regular check-ups.

Should I have over or under the muscle placement?

You will likely have heard of implants being placed both behind and in front of the muscle. Both are valid options that come with their own merits, and which is best depends entirely on the patient. What your Plastic Surgeon will recommend will be based on your health and previous surgical history, your body type, quality of your skin and also the size and type of the implant itself. In the case of a wide chest bone, it can sometimes be better to place the implant in front of the muscle. This is because the muscle attaches to the chest bone, so positioning an implant under the muscle makes it more difficult to narrow the cleavage gap.
