The female breast: Central Element of Femininity

The female breast is the very symbol of femininity and the principal erotic attribute of women. It has been described as the nourisher of humankind, but also as a dangerous weapon; it has been sanctified and venerated as an element of the Mother of God, and demonized as a symbol of the female Eros. That is a lot of consequence and cultural history for a body part already in a prominent position.

It is, therefore, hardly surprising that every woman pays a great deal of attention to her breasts – and often enough quite critically. Yet, the norm is not necessarily always beautiful, and not every deviation is ugly. One thing is evident, however: the variety in shape is greater than the ideal of beauty allows. Too small, too big, sagging, or even asymmetrical – many women are unhappy with their breasts. As a plastic surgeon, I have specialized in breast surgery for many years, and I know how stressful it can be for women to perceive their breasts as unattractive. At worst, such a situation may lead to social avoidance behavior and depression. Fortunately, we now have reliable medical solutions to help these women. Surgical treatments are not always necessary; sometimes, non- or minimally invasive procedures are more promising.

Whether or not a woman is happy and content with her breasts has a significant impact on her self-esteem and emotions. This is why many women want their breasts to be as perfect as possible. However, not every woman has the kind of breasts that she, herself, considers perfect. Small breasts, especially, are often perceived as a disadvantage. In such cases, breast augmentation may help women to achieve a better quality of life. In the meantime, several objective scientific studies have emphasized the significant improvements in self-esteem and a higher quality of life after such an operation.

However, not only the size but especially the shape of the breasts is an issue. A majority prefers youthfully plump, rounded, and symmetrically formed breasts. Sagging breasts that have lost their firmness due to pregnancy, nursing, or asymmetrical breasts are not desirable. Another critical factor is the harmonious interaction between the breasts and the rest of the body. The result of a breast augmentation procedure will only be successful if the correct proportions are taken into account.

A breast augmentation performed by Dr. Dr. Christina Günter may help affected women to achieve a new quality of life.

Before such a treatment, detailed consultations are mandatory. It is essential to talk about the motivation for this kind of surgery, to discuss whether the desired result can be achieved, and to speak about possible limitations. Other important topics are alternative treatments, as well as potential adverse side effects and possible risks.

It goes without saying that your health is always given priority. Breast augmentation procedures that negatively affect your health or the breast’s natural function, such as its sensitivity, the ability to nurse, and the breast’s physical integrity, are not recommended. I also do not support requests for extreme augmentations, since oversized breasts usually lead to health problems (e.g., back pain, herniated disks).

If you decide on breast augmentation, it is essential that you are cared for professionally and personally during the entire process.

I attach great importance to perceiving, advising, and treating you as an individual, with all your personality’s facets. My many years of experience, expertise, empathy, and communication are central pillars of my therapeutic success. Intensive and personal post-treatment care is as much a focus of my work as the preparation and the treatment itself. After all, a perfect result can only be achieved by working together as a team.

Breast Augmentation with Implants

The vast majority of women worldwide opt for implants when they decide on breast augmentation. The high reliability in achieving the desired result plays a significant role in favor of this decision. Besides, the quality of silicone implants has made considerable progress in recent years, ensuring a higher level of safety, compatibility, and longevity of implants, which is undoubtedly another factor in favor.

Before performing breast augmentation with implants, several decisions need to be made – regarding the type of implant and the surgical procedure. On the one hand, we need to consider the implant’s characteristics: shape (anatomical or round), size, and the properties of the gel. On the other, the implant’s position below or above the pectoral muscle, and the location of the incision need to be discussed. There are three different established options for the incision: the axillary fold, the inframammary fold, or the areola. All three have their specific advantages and disadvantages. The incision in the axillary fold has the benefit that the breast itself will remain free of scars. The nipple’s sensitivity will remain unimpaired, and the incidence of capsular fibrosis is very low. The procedure itself will take about one hour and is performed under general anesthesia. An inpatient stay of 1 to 2 days is recommended.

Dr. Dr. Christina Irene Günter is a well-known specialist in axillary breast augmentation. Emphasizing on natural looking, long lasting results.

Before such a treatment, detailed consultations are mandatory. It is essential to talk about the motivation for this kind of surgery, to discuss whether the desired result can be achieved, and to speak about possible limitations. Other important topics are alternative treatments, as well as potential adverse side effects and possible risks.

Risks

As with any surgical procedure, breast augmentation may lead to bruising (hematoma), secondary bleeding, swelling, wound healing disorders, infections, and wound dehiscence. Temporary numbness of the treated area may also occur.

In addition to the usual surgical risks, some occur simply because an implant is inserted into the body. The risks associated with such an implant include infection, possible biofilm formation, the development of capsular fibrosis, implant leakage or rupture, breast implant illness and the extremely rare ALCL (anaplastic large cell lymphoma). I will discuss these issues with you extensively and comprehensibly in a face-to-face conversation.

Breast Augmentation with Autologous Fat Injection

Not every woman who wants a fuller breast and is considering breast augmentation is willing to accept the implantation of a foreign body (= silicon implant). In many cases, concern about possible, even long-term, adverse side effects is the decisive factor.

For these women, Dr. Dr. Christina Günter offers breast augmentation with autologous fat as an alternative. This method was first described and performed more than 100 years ago. For a long time, however, it was said to have substantial disadvantages, particularly a lack of durability. In the last few years, extensive research and a better understanding of the processes involved in autologous fat transplants have led to significant improvements, both in the fat grafting and the injection technique. Consequently, the long-term results have also improved significantly. Despite all the progress, however, breast augmentation with autologous fat injection is still a method requiring the patient’s understanding and cooperation. The results are not as standardized as in the case of breast augmentation with implants. 

Here, a detailed preparatory consultation is of particular importance. It is essential to discuss whether the desired result can be achieved and to talk about possible limitations. Other important topics are alternative treatments, as well as potential adverse side effects and possible risks.
