Breast augmentation

Thousands of women have improved their appearance and gained more confidence thanks to the breast augmentation. If you are aware of the size of your breasts, increasing breasts offer you the chance to get  better shaped, fuller breasts using the latest techniques in the cosmetic surgery. We invite you to arrange a consultation in the Bagatin Clinic where you will have the opportunity to see how you may look after the surgery and can discuss your wishes.

About the procedure

Breast augmentation surgery or augmentation mammoplasty is one of the most common procedures in the Bagatin Clinic. It is performed  by building in the implants that are designed to increase the small, underdeveloped breasts or after breastfeeding to restore and increase the volume of the breasts. Choosing the right size of implant is the most important joint decision of the patient and the surgeon. When the implants are too large compared with the tissue of your chest, or if it  does not perform an  adequate cover, after plastic surgery ends of implants can be seen through the skin and be visible. Also, inappropriate size implants can increase the effect of gravity due to weight and improve earlier sagging breasts.

Today, before the operation it is possible to see final results in 3D simulation how you will look after the procedure which greatly helps in the communication between doctors and patients. This is possible with  VECTRA 3D, and it is only available in our clinic in our region. Simulations are based on actual silicone implants that we use during breast augmentation, which are currently the highest quality implants on the market.

Breast augmentation is a surgical method that primarily improves the appearance or achieves a higher volume of the breasts. Also, it can correct asymmetry (uneven breast size), or it can do a surgical breast reconstruction after a mastectomy (removal of the breast). 

These photographs show the real condition before and after the procedure. The results of each procedure are subject to individualities and normal variability of surgical results. Consequently, Bagatin Clinic cannot guarantee equal results for each individual client. 

Bagatin Clinic uses only top quality Mentor implants, produced by the company Johnson & Johnson in strictly controlled conditions. The implants are filled with cohesive silicone gel of the latest generation. The patient can choose between two types of implants, anatomical teardrop-shaped or round, depending on the effect that she wants to achieve.

Also more information and details about the operations you can see in 3D animation that opens when you click on the blue "banner" bellow. 3D animation simulation provides to patients and potential patients with an excellent summary of events during surgery. Animation enters into all aspects of the procedure, from the decision-making process through the preparation for the procedure and the procedure itself to recovery after the procedure, allowing the patient visual and sound presentation. Our doctors and staff are ready to help you with answer any questions, but the best answer how you will look after the procedure can give you 3D simulated animation. The popular procedures such as breast augmentation are simply explained to the patient and in that way provides an extra sense of security.

Am I a candidate?

Women choose breast augmentation to enhance their appearance, strengthen their confidence and reduce self-criticism. These are the typical problems of an aesthetic nature that patients want to correct:

  • Breasts after puberty have not developed to the desired size.
  • Bigger breasts provide a balance in relation to the stronger/more developed lower body to provide the appearance of an hourglass.
  • The breasts are pointed, flat or some other form that is not desired for our patient.
  • Breast reduction after weight loss or pregnancy/lactation.
  • Reduced strength due to physical changes such as aging.
  • Asymmetrical breasts in terms of size or shape.
  • Reconstruction of the breast after mastectomy.

How do you prepare?

It is necessary to stop smoking four to six weeks before the procedure, and two weeks before that stop taking aspirins, herbals or any other supplements that affect blood coagulation and certain medications that inhibit the formation of inflammation, because  their contents can cause significant bleeding.

During the consultation in Bagatin Clinic talk frankly with a doctor about your expectations, speak openly  about the history of the disease, allergies to medications or food and tell the doctor if you are suffering from some chronical disease or  taking certain medications. Doctor Bagatin will make a review with the device VECTRA 3D display that provides realistic 3D simulation of your body and gives us the ability to show patients  how they can look after the surgery. 

Breast augmentation

12 to 24 hours before the procedure we  recommend: the day before the procedure use antibacterial soap and leave the foam of the antibacterial soap for about 10 minutes on the part of the body that will undergo surgery. Repeat this procedure in the morning. Wash the breast and underarm area thoroughly.
Eight hours before the surgery: Do not eat or drink, remove all jewelry, remove nail polish on hands and feet.

During the procedure

Breast augmentation surgery usually takes about two to three hours and is performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure an incision is made under the breast in a natural groove breast, around the lower edge of the nipple or underarm area. Implants filled with silicone gel are placed under the breast tissue or underneath, and usually partially below the gland and partially underlying muscles, depending on what size or shape, as well as whether your job is related to greater efforts. Dr. Bagatin will, in cooperation with you, decide which size, shape and type of implant is best to shape your breasts.

Recovery time

In order to go home after surgery in secure and good general condition, you will be placed in the recovery room overnight because you have been subjected to general anesthesia. After the procedure is carried a soft, comfortable compression bra is obligatory to be worn for four weeks in order to reduce post-operative swelling and retain implants where they are placed. You may return to normal activities gradually over the next two to three weeks, while greater efforts can be performed after six weeks.

Drainage is usually not made after cosmetic breast augmentation, but such possibility exists, and it is not to worry if you are put a small surgical drain, mostly through one night, while your breasts will be wrapped with elastic bands. After surgery, you will continuously get strong painkillers  intravenously. Patients sensitive to painkillers may have nausea and it is necessary to immediately inform the nurse.

Recovery time that takes after breast augmentation depends on the procedure that is performed on the patient. Most patients need help during the first and second day, and after that can usually take care of themselves, but there is a possibility that help should be needed in caring for young children. A patient on a second day after the operation can function normally, but it can be individually. Many are able to return to work within 7-10 days, but it depends on the individual. It is necessary to avoid hard efforts and heavy lifting during the next 4-6 weeks.


Every surgical procedure carries certain risks, such as risks of anesthesia, infection, bleeding and swelling. These complications occur rarely and can usually be avoided. The Bagatin Clinic besides the best, internationally renowned anesthesiologist has  the most modern anesthetic apparatus that represents safety for the patient and reduces the risk of the operation. Thousands of women annually perform breast augmentation surgery successfully and are very pleased with the results. Our team is taking all possible measures in order to reduce any risk to a minimum. However, very often the responsibility for avoiding the risk lies in you. Dr. Bagatin will inform you during the consultation about the risks of the surgery in detail and give instructions that should be followed in the postoperative recovery.
