Breast implants underneath the breast muscle
Ideal for slender women.
In most cases, and particularly on slender women, there is a tendency to place the breast implant underneath the pectoral muscle (submuscular placement), in order to ensure the edges of the implants are fully covered and thus remain invisible. Using this technique, the base of the breast will appear larger and the contour transitions will look smoother.
Breast implants in front of the pectoral muscle
A viable option for women with more endogenous tissue.
Placing the breast implants between the mammal gland and the pectoral muscle (subglandular placement) can be advantageous for women with abundant endogenous tissue or with sagging breasts. Depending on where the incision is made, recovery time may vary.
Breast augmentation with autologous fat – for particularly natural looking breasts!
More and more women are articulating their desire to have bigger breasts. However, some are reluctant to insert any foreign material into their body. For those women, getting a breast augmentation with autologous fat – provided they have enough fat deposits – represents a viable alternative to a traditional augmentation with breast implants.
A breast augmentation with autologous fat has many advantages: For one, you can augment and shape your breasts entirely without any foreign material. The breasts remain soft and look particularly natural – which is why even women with breast implants have begun to give their breasts a more natural look by getting supplementary injections of autologous fat.
A breast augmentation with autologous fat is particularly suited for a combination with a breast lift operation. Last but not least: Suctioning bothersome pockets of fat tissue is a great secondary effect of this method.

Hot tip: Stay away from breast augmentations with hyaluronic acid!
For a brief period of time there was a lot of buzz around breast augmentations with hyaluronic acid. However, due to the many disadvantages, the hype quickly faded away. The costs of this method were extremely high – without any lasting results.
In addition to that, there was no agreement on how to perform radiological examinations on breasts that contained injectable materials. Due to this general uncertainty that method eventually became obsolete.
Nowadays, there are two tried and tested methods to perform breast augmentations: with breast implants or with autologous fat. The specialized plastic surgeons at Aesthea can perform both methods expertly and safely – giving you the bosom of your dreams!
