Breast augmentation at Ocean Clinic Madrid, performed to enhance the appearance, size and contour of a woman’s breasts. Women consider breast augmentation surgery for many different reasons. Some women feel their breasts are too small. Some desire breast enhancement after the breasts change after pregnancy. Others desire to correct an asymmetry in breast size.
The breast enlargement procedure consists in the implantation of silicone-gel filled implants underneath the existing breast.
Through those breast implants we achieve a 3-dimensional breast enhancement, which can be tailored to almost every patient’s need thanks to the extensive range of implant styles, profiles and volumes available today. At Ocean Clinic Madrid we use silicone breast implants manufactured by the 3 market leading companies: MENTOR, ALLERGAN and NAGOR. They all come with lifetime guarantee against implant rupture and are available in round, anatomic and high profile styles.
The placement of the breast implant can either be under the pectoralis (breast) muscle or on top of it, the incision to introduce the breast implant can be made below the nipple, in the breast fold or under the armpit. Plastic surgeon Dr Richard Fakin will assess your individual case and your expectations to make this decision together with you in an extensive consultation where you will have the chance to try on different styles and sizes.
At Ocean Clinic in Madrid the breast augmentation operation takes between 1 - 1.5 hours, depending on the technique, and can be performed under twilight sedation combined with local anesthesia or general anesthesia.

Breast Augmentation Implants can be inserted either through the nipple, which leaves an almost invisible scar, through the crease under the breast, which leaves a small (3cm) scar, or through the Axilla (armpit).
A team of physicians, chemists, biologists and engineers developed the world’s first-ever lightweight breast implant. Patient safety was the primary concern to reduce risks to a minimum. Strict design limitations were set. All materials used are proven biocompatible materials. No introduction of new materials. No changes on the shell of the implant, only the filler. No modification to the surgical procedure, so that surgeons can continue operating in the manner they are accustomed.
Based on these guidelines, G&G Biotechnology succeeded in developing a lightweight breast implant, that has the same look and feel of a traditional silicone implant but weighs less. That is almost a third less of weight to carry around. Maximum comfort in addition to the long-term safety. Both 390 CC implants on the scale, the traditional implant weighs 392 grams and the B-Lite implant weighs 272 grams. About 30% less!
The B-Lite technology uses existing silicon shells but fills them with microsphere enhance silicone gel. The cosy body of the B-Lite implant has less gel protrudes than the traditional implant. Because of its high coercivity, B-Lite implants are manufactured in Germany, in a factory that has 25 years of experience with breast implants. G&G Biotechnology is ISO 1345 approved and the implants carry the C II mark from the European health authorities.
Contact plastic surgeon Dr Richard Fakin in Madrid to learn more about B-Lite implants and how it can help you achieve the body you want with more comfort and less risk.
Breast augmentation is the most common procedure performed in plastic cosmetic surgery. Every year over a million and a half surgeries are performed worldwide, but in the past 50 years little has changed in the world of breast implants.
The implants have the same structure that they had in 1962 when Conan and Gove introduced the first one, a silicone shell filled with either saline or silicone gel. About ten years ago dr Green, a world-renowned plastic surgeon, had an aha moment. Having performed thousands of breast augmentations, he realized that the weight of the implants is responsible for a large number of the side effects.
Experienced over time, concerned with the safety of women, the solution was obvious in his mind. Create a lightweight breast implant that would enable the women to have the breast size and shape they wanted without the side effects.
The breast, a soft tissue composed mostly of glandular tissue and fat. There are no muscles or significant ligaments to support the breasts. That is the reason why with time and gravity the breasts will sag and doop. Gravity works on us 24/7. The force of gravity is in direct proportion to weight. Women carry their breasts everywhere and all the time. In any activity such as sitting, standing, walking and all forms of sports, the breasts will undergo a stretch in proportion to their weight.
After having lost much of my breast tissue due to two pregnancies I underwent breast enlargement surgery one year ago, and I feel it is the best decision I have ever made.
The doctor gave me the right advice about which size to take for my figure and to correct the volume loss and apart from that I felt confident from the start that he is a professional and I felt I was in good hands. The operation went smooth and I have hardly had any pain afterwards. I stayed one night in the clinic and was discharged the next day only with a small bandage and almost no swelling or bruising. Now I am already one year post surgery and everything feels so natural that at times it is hard to believe I have implants.
I would recommend it to every woman feeling unconfortable with their small breasts! I told the doctor that I don’t see him as a doctor but as an artist because what he has done to me is a piece of art.
Silicone implants are made of a silicone rubber shell filled with a silicone gel that feels very similar to natural breast tissue. Saline implants are made of a silicone rubber shell and are filled with sterile salt water.
Breast implants come in two different textures:
In the majority of breast augmentation surgeries, the smooth breast implants are used. Plastic surgeon Dr Richard Fakin, chief consultant plastic surgery and director of Ocean Clinic Madrid, will help you choose the proper style and size of breast implants based on your lifestyle, body contours, and existing amount of breast tissue to achieve the cup size and appearance you desire.
Round implants are the traditional implants, provide natural-looking and satisfying results especially on young women. Round implants primarily adds volume to the breast with a rounded upper breast curve.
Anatomical implants also known as Teardrop, form-stable or gummy-bear breast implants. One of their main characteristics is a flatter upper breast pole and a fuller lower breast curve. Anatomical breast implants are fully customizable in shape and volume. Anatomical implants are able to provide truly 3D Breast Enhancement.
The profile of an implant measures the distance an implant projects outward from the chest wall. There are three projection types of breast implant profiles available:
The implants volume is the amount of space the implant occupies and is measured in cubic centimeters.
The three primary options for inserting silicone implants into the breast are:
An incision made along the areolar periphery. Aesthetically, because the scars are at the areola’s border, they usually are less visible than the IMF-incision scars.
The incision is made to the axilla, armpit and allows emplacing the implants without producing visible scars upon the breast proper. Transaxillary emplacement can be performed directly or with an endoscope (illuminated video microcamera).
Breast implants can be placed in various locations:
The breast implant is emplaced behind the glandular tissue but in front the muscle and affords the most aesthetic results.
The breast implant is emplaced beneath the pectoralis major muscle. The implant partially behind the pectoralis muscle, wherein the lower portion of the implant is not completely covered by the muscle, is referred to as dual plane placement.
The breast implant is emplaced beneath the pectoralis major muscle as well as behind connective tissue, such that it is firmly behind the chest muscle wall.
Plastic surgeon Dr Fakin will help determine the implant placement that is best for you.
Most breast augmentation procedures are done in outpatient surgery facilities. A compression dressing or bra and prescribe medication will help to manage pain. Recover before resuming daily activities. Follow activity and lifting restrictions to avoid complications. Swelling will subside within a few days, some swelling may persist for several weeks.
Bottoming Out, breast implants shifts downward and settles there giving the breast a hanging look.
