PD Dr. Alawi:
Your breast enlargement expert

Many women dream of a harmonious breast shape that looks natural and fits the rest of their body. PD Dr. Alawi understands these desires and uses his expertise in plastic surgery to make this dream a reality. With his many years of experience as a surgeon in plastic and aesthetic surgery, he offers individual consultations to clarify all questions and find the best solutions for each patient.

Types of breast enlargements

There are various methods to increase breast volume and adjust the shape and size of the breast to your personal preferences.

Brustvergrößerung - Eigenfett

Breast enlargement using your own fat is an innovative and aesthetic method that is particularly popular with slim women. The biggest advantage of this method is its naturalness. Instead of using foreign materials, the body's own fat is used to optimize the volume and shape of the female breast. The fat is usually taken from areas such as the stomach, hips or thighs. After special processing, this fat is then injected into the breast. Another advantage is that there are no scars that can occur when implants are placed. However, it should be noted that some of the injected fat may be broken down by the body over time, affecting the final result.

Breast enlargement - implants

Breast enlargement with implants is the best-known method of increasing breast volume. This involves the use of silicone implants or other materials that are inserted between the pectoral muscle and the mammary gland or under the pectoral muscle. A silicone implant usually consists of a shell filled with a solid, cohesive silicone gel.

There are different implant options to choose from:

  • Round implants: These implants give the breast a fuller shape, especially in the upper area.

  • Anatomically shaped implants: Also known as “teardrop” implants, they mimic the natural shape of the breast and provide a very natural look.

Choosing the right implant depends on various factors, including the patient's individual anatomy, her wishes and the surgeon's recommendation. It is therefore important to have a consultation with PD Dr. Alawi - your specialist in plastic surgery - to discuss the options and your individual wishes.

Breast implants or your own fat: Which method is right for you?

Choosing between breast implants and fat transfer is one of the most fundamental decisions you will have to make when undergoing breast augmentation. Both methods have their own advantages and limitations.

Breast implants often offer a more permanent and precise result. They are particularly suitable for women who want significant enlargement or whose breasts have little fat. Silicone implants are the most commonly chosen option because they offer a natural feel and appearance. They are available in different shapes, from round to anatomical, and can be individually adapted to the wishes and anatomy of the patient.

Breast enlargement using your own fat, on the other hand, is a less invasive method and is particularly suitable for women who want moderate enlargement or who have concerns about foreign materials. Since the body's own material is used, there is no risk of a rejection reaction. However, some of the injected fat may be broken down by the body over time, which may result in a slight reduction in volume.

Ultimately, the decision depends on your individual wishes, your anatomy and the recommendations of your surgeon. A non-binding consultation with PD Dr. Alawi can help you find the best method for you and clarify any questions you may have.

Who is breast enlargement suitable for?

The decision to have breast enlargement is a very personal and individual one. There are different reasons for breast enlargement, and not every woman chooses it for the same reasons.

1. Dissatisfaction with natural breast size: Many women want larger breasts to feel more feminine and confident. This can increase self-esteem and improve overall body image.

2. Changes after pregnancy or breastfeeding: The breast may lose volume or change shape after birth or breastfeeding. Breast augmentation can help restore the original appearance or even achieve a desired shape and size.

3. Breast asymmetry: Some women naturally have unequally sized breasts. Breast augmentation can help achieve a harmonious and symmetrical appearance.

4. Reconstruction after a mastectomy: Women who have had to have a breast or part of it removed due to breast cancer may choose breast augmentation to restore the look and feel of the breast.

5. Aging Process: With age, the breast can lose firmness and volume. Breast augmentation can help achieve a more youthful and fuller breast shape.

It is important to emphasize that breast enlargement is a very individual decision. A detailed consultation with a specialist plastic and aesthetic surgeon is essential to ensure that the decision is well-informed and made in the best interests of the patient.

Breast enlargement procedure

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that requires careful planning and preparation. The first step is always a detailed consultation with the plastic surgeon, PD Dr. Alawi. Here all questions are clarified, the risks and options are discussed and an initial assessment is made.

The patient is admitted to the clinic on the day of the operation. When breast enlargement with implants, the procedure is usually carried out under general anesthesia. The surgeon makes an incision, usually in the inframammary fold or around the nipple, to insert the implant. Depending on your individual anatomy and wishes, the implant is placed either under the pectoral muscle or directly under the mammary gland. After the implant is positioned, the wound is carefully closed and a bandage is applied.

During breast enlargement using your own fat, fat is first removed from certain areas of the body, such as the stomach or hips. This fat is then prepared and injected into the breast. The procedure can be carried out under local anesthesia or twilight sleep.

Cost of breast enlargement

The cost of breast augmentation can vary depending on the method chosen, the surgeon and the clinic. The average price for breast enlargement is €6,500 in Germany. The price of breast enlargement usually includes surgery, the implant or fat, anesthesia and aftercare. It is important to find out about all the costs involved in advance and to receive a transparent breakdown of costs.

Care and handling of implants after surgery

After breast enlargement with implants, it is important to take proper care of the breast. This includes regularly checking the implants for changes and keeping follow-up appointments. With silicone implants, you should find out about the lifetime guarantee and know when an implant replacement is recommended.
