Breast enlargement makes it possible to achieve a natural, well-shaped and well-formed breast that meets your personal and individual aesthetic needs. However, asymmetries (special size differences and different heights of the breast folds) that exist before enlargement can not always be fully compensated.
Your doctor will try to achieve the size of the cup you have agreed upon. A final vote, which implant size is possible, however, can only be done intraoperatively, as it depends on the anatomical conditions and the tissue extensibility.
The final result of breast augmentation can only be assessed after 2 to 3 months.
Most patients are very satisfied with the result, but a guarantee for a satisfactory surgical result can not be given even if surgery is successful.
