Breast / Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is surgery that increases and shapes the volume of the breast.

Since breast augmentation enlarges the breasts, the intervention does not move it, nor rises it.

Breast augmentation is a big help to those who want a breast with a fuller profile,
after pregnancy and breast-feeding or
those who underwent a breast reconstruction surgery.

What can you to expect after breast augmentation?

The same day

You will be constantly monitored and observed until you are able to go home. Sometimes it will be necessary to stay in the clinic overnight. Someone will have to take you home and drive. At home you will need to be assisted for a day or two. Remember to buy the medicines prescribed before surgery and keep them on hand. Please have ice packs  available  to put on the chest.

The first week

In the first few days your breasts will be covered with a dressing and a bra provided by the staff. One can not take a shower until the dressing is removed. Do not lift anything heavier than 10 kg. Do not do exercises, but if you feel like walking you can do so. Usually four days after surgery Dr. Borra takes away the dressing and you will see your new breasts for the first time.  A bit of burning and itching are normal.

A month

You’ll see yourself beautiful. You can do exercises with  arms and chest after 1 month from the breast augmentation. The skin and the muscles will be adapting to the presence of the prosthesis and the breasts will be softer and will adapt to your movements in a natural way. You will appreciate the meticulousness with which Dr. Borra closed incisions because the scars will become invisible.

What patients say: Manuela T.

Dear girls and women I want you to know that if you want a very professional cosmetic surgeon, but above all capable, I would strongly advise Dr Luca Borra of Lugano.I turned to him for a breast augmentation. I state I was very skeptical because I had already been seen by a renowned surgeon, but unfortunately during the visit he was dismissive and very quick with his explanation wich left me puzzled, so I tried to find another surgeon that would meet my needs.During the visit with dr Luca Borra I realized that in front of me there was a pleasant surgeon who also could see the human side and not just the aesthetics.I asked a lot of questions and doubts that I had flashed on my mind and he responded with calm and tranquility to all my perplexities without dodging any problem. I had surgery with him and to this day it has been a year and a half and the results are perfect without consequences. Apart from the initial pain I have not had any problems and returned to work after about a week.I would strongly recommend Luca Borra for any surgery, because the main difference lies in the human factor, and he is able to grasp the human and aesthetic aspects. Not least the size and type of prosthesis that he recommends are not like we could imagine, but he creates union and harmony with the body without falling into the vulgar.
