An ‘impressive’ breast, that was once a privilege of a few fortunate ‘magazine cover beauties’ has always been considered an aesthetic requisite of primary importance, a crucial attraction factor and a symbol of excellence of feminine charm. A much desired feature by most women, a harmonious proportionate breast, is not a mirage anymore.

Modern cosmetic surgery provides effective help for all those who were not fortunate to be born with a prominent neckline, and who often experience inferiority complexes or feelings of inadequacy. Cosmetic procedures meet the most diverse requirements through safe, personalised and effective additive mastoplasty surgery.

Additive mastoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to increase the volume of breasts that are too small by inserting a silicone prosthesis. It improves the appearance and consistency of ‘sagging’ breasts that lack turgor by redefining their contour and enhancing both tone and appearance. The functional worth of additive mastoplasty can also be observed beyond solely aesthetic purposes. Indeed, a prostheses is indicated to correct undesirable and/or asymmetrical shapes and volumes, and for breast reconstruction after particularly invasive surgery.

Surgery, which is generally performed under general anaesthesia (and which can also be carried out under local anaesthesia combined with sedation), envisages some small surgical incisions (few cm) to insert the prostheses, whose size and position must be assessed with the doctor to avoid impairing balanced proportions between body structure and the breast.


To guarantee an aesthetically perfect and subtle result, incisions are generally performed in ‘concealed’ areas to leave few traces and be virtually invisible (edge of the aerola, underarm and groove between the breasts). The prostheses can be inserted into a pocket under the breast, under the chest muscle or partly under the breast and partly under the muscle (dual plane). In all cases, the surgical procedure, which has a short duration, does not present particular contraindications and allows patients to return to routine activities in one or two weeks (the patient is, instead, recommended to wait for at least one month before practising sports).

There is no reason for concern if the breast appears ‘higher’ than normal (especially if the implant was inserted under the chest muscle) during the days that closely follow surgery. The breast will acquire a totally natural appearance over a period of 3-6 weeks.



If breasts present very evident sagging, it might be necessary to combine mastoplasty and mastopexy, which lifts tissues and enhances the volume increase, also improving appearance, shape and consistency of the breast.
