Why choose Dr. Kelly

Coming from a breast surgery background, having performed many breast cancer surgeries, having done research in the field of breast surgery for many years and having experienced the surgery myself as a patient, I have a very different attitude and expertise on the subject of breast augmentation. 

  • Experience: Decades of surgical experience in the field of breast cancer surgery and aesthetic breast surgery.
  • Research: PhD publication and extensive research in the field of Breast Surgery
  • Safety: Professional, well-rehearsed team, outpatient anesthesia and highest standards in equipment (according to AQC recommendations)
  • Technique: Surgery planning by 3D scan and surgery execution by Dual-Plane, MST (Minimal Scaring Technique) and no-touch technique (Keller Funnel)
  • Accessibility: Dr. Kelly Vasileiadou and team are available for you 24/7 after surgery
  • Individuality: Bespoke instead of mass produced
  • Satisfaction: Highest patient satisfaction, due to the individual interest and personal relationship we develop with our patients
  • Woman to woman: a different kind of connection, better understanding of women’s needs

I consider breast augmentation as a way to achieve not only an ideal size or shape for the particular woman, but also to improve her overall body profile. Therefore, a well-performed breast implant surgery should take into account the shape of the breast as well as the patient’s overall shape and body size. It is an operation that I plan for weeks before I enter the operating room, it is not a mass production for me. In addition, my primary goal is to develop a personal relationship with each patient, to listen to and understand her wishes and fears. After all, this is surgery on one of the most unique and sensual parts of the female body.

Breast augmentation with Dr. Kelly is an experience. 

What a breast augmentation means to Dr. Kelly

From my point of view, breast augmentation is an operation on the breast, but it has an impact on the whole body. The enlargement of the upper body creates a completely different silhouette and body image.

The best breast augmentation is the one that looks completely natural and does not cause “funny” looks from your opposite. Whatever the reason you want to increase the size of your breasts and want or need an augmentation for a small breast, we must first sit down together and answer all your questions in an intensive conversation.

My goal is to offer every woman the perfect breasts, which are proportional to their body and also fit their individual body image.

How does breast augmentation work at Dr. Kelly?

Breast augmentation takes place with us in Hünenberg See, in our own operating room with high standards. Depending on the method and technique, the operation takes 1-1.5 hours. An overnight stay in the clinic is no longer necessary today for medical reasons.

You can usually leave your private recovery room on the same day. For our patients who come from abroad or from far away from Switzerland, we also offer overnight inpatient care.
When you are discharged, you will be given a support bra to wear for 6 weeks, as well as all the medication you need so that you do not have to visit a pharmacy on the same day.

You will also have all the necessary instructions for after the surgery explained to you personally and also sent to you by mail. And most importantly, you can always reach our team 24/7 if you have any questions. Immediately after the surgery, you can always reach Dr. Kelly Vasileiadou on a cell phone number, even at night.

Further check-ups in the office are important in order to optimally accompany the healing process. After 2 days the dressings are changed and after about 1 week another wound check follows. Suture removal is not necessary, as the sutures are absorbable.

We will closely follow you during the healing process and scarring, advise you and provide you with proper care. If you are prone to severe scarring, we can assist you with Factional Laser or Medical Needling (special price for our surgery patients 250,-/session).

After a successful surgery and waiting for the healing process, you will be pain-free, able to breastfeed and exercise without any problems.

I will be very happy to advise you personally

In an initial, no-obligation consultation, I can explain to you the breast augmentation in detail and answer all your questions.

Where will the implant be positioned?

Breast implants can be placed on the pectoralis muscle in different ways depending on one’s anatomy: on the muscle, below the muscle and in the so-called “dual plane” technique.

The implant is often placed above the muscle and below the mammary gland when the breast is pendulous. This is still a frequently used technique by many surgeons today because it is technically easier. But if you don’t have a significant amount of natural breast tissue, you may be able to feel the outline of the implant and the transition from your breast to your upper body may look less natural. For this reason, this is not my preferred technique.

A submuscular approach (implant all the way under the muscle) results in a nice transition from the breast to the torso.  This approach also has the advantage of a lower rate of capsular contracture. This means that if your body naturally forms a capsule around the implant, it is much less likely to harden, become painful, or deform the breast shape. However, this technique often leads to the so-called “double bubble” effect or deformities of the implant because of the constant pressure of the implant from the muscle. 

The preferred technique for breast augmentation and the one I use the most is the “dual-plane” technique. This means the use of a dual plane, where the upper part of the implant is under the pectoralis muscle and the lower part is under the gland. This technique combines all the advantages of the two techniques described above and provides a particularly natural result in that the implant remains less palpable, the patient gets a more natural breast shape, and the rate of capsular contracture is reduced.

During your consultation, I will help you determine which option will give you the most natural result and give you a perfect outcome.

Where does the scar run in breast augmentation?

The incision for breast augmentation for a small breast is strategically placed to hide any signs of surgery. There are three ways to place the incision: under the breast (inframammary), a semicircle at the base of the areola (periareolar), or through the armpit (transaxillary).

An incision under the breast is used in 90% of cases because it heals well, is well hidden, and provides an excellent view of the tissue and the position of the implant during surgery. Although periareolar incisions (an incision at the base of the areola) are also popular, studies have shown that they can lead to higher rates of capsular contracture and loss of nipple sensation. The transaxillary approach is the third choice for breast augmentation. However, I do not recommend this incision because the scar is visible when you wear a sleeveless top and increases the risk of infection.

Which breast augmentation size is right for me?

Deciding how big your breast implant should be for your breast is very important and requires careful planning and consideration, and can put a lot of stress on my patients. I take a lot of time with you to make the final decision. In my office, you can try on the “implant sizer” and work with my simulation program to get the best idea of how the added volume will look when you wear clothes.

Much of the decision is based on the width of your chest. Smaller, petite patients need a smaller breast implant because larger implants would show under their arms. Aside from considering your own ideals or vision, you also need to consider the goals you want to achieve with breast augmentation surgery, your lifestyle, and your age.

How quickly will I recover from breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is an operation where you will recover very quickly after the procedure. However, it is important that you carefully follow the post-operative instructions that you receive from me. 

The procedure takes no more than 60 minutes and you can go home the same day. Basically, you can start light daily activities on the first day after surgery and you can return to work five days post-operatively. However, you may resume strenuous activities and sports only after four weeks. You should wear the compression bra, which you will receive from us at home, for 6 weeks after the operation.

Which implant shall I choose?

There are round and teardrop-shaped (anatomical) breast implants.

The anatomical implant has the peculiarity that 65% of the volume is in the lower pole, whereas in the round implant the distribution is 50:50. As a result, round implants emphasize the upper pole and the décolleté more than anatomical implants, which offer a more natural shape of the breast.

The implants also differ in texture. There are the textured, the smooth and the micro or nano textured implants. The difference lies in the manufacturing process, which is why textured implants are usually also firmer and more dimensionally stable than smooth implants. 

I work with the latest generation of silicone implants, which are very stable in shape, reliable, tested for many years and of high quality. The newest implants are characterized by a high standard of quality and safety, they integrate better with the female breast, the silicone gel adapts to the natural movement of the body and the feeling of the body is absolutely natural and pleasant. 

We do not have exclusive cooperation with any manufacturer of breast implants (e.g. Mentor, Motiva, GCA, Polytech etc.) and hence are not obliged to a vendor. We use the implant that fits you and only that. Here we do not make any compromises.

Will the implant need to be replaced over time?

The latest generation of breast implants do not have a date after which they need to be replaced. If you feel comfortable, there is no reason to replace them. It is very important that the breast implant I use for breast augmentation comes with a lifetime guarantee.

We do not have exclusive cooperation with any manufacturer of breast implants (e.g. Mentor, Motiva, GCA, Polytech etc.). We use the implant that fits you and only that. Here we do not make any compromises.

“As a woman, I develop a connection with you and your desires because I can understand what makes you want breast augmentation.”

Breast augmentation, pregnancy and breastfeeding, what do I need to consider?

During pregnancy, the size and shape of the breasts change – regardless of whether breast augmentation was performed or not. Pregnancy often changes the shape of your breast tissue, but the implants remain the same. The hormonal changes during pregnancy affect the structure of your breasts, but do not affect the implant.

Many of my patients have asked when is the best time for breast augmentation. Here I have found that there are two age groups. The first group is women in their twenties, and the second is women in their late thirties or early forties who already have children. With the first group, I often talk to them about their plans to have children. If they are getting married and expecting children soon, we may postpone placing breast implants because the breasts will change during pregnancy. But if you are not planning to have children in the near future, there is no reason to wait.

Contrary to the fears of many women, breast augmentation with implants does not affect the ability to breastfeed. The implant is placed under the breast tissue and often under the pectoralis muscle, away from the milk ducts.

Breast augmentation cost

In my practice, your well-being and an optimal result is our top priority. Each patient has an individuality whose needs are the focus of my treatments. Therefore, it is not always possible to give a general estimate of the costs. Therefore, please understand that we cannot give generally valid prices for breast augmentation. The costs of each surgical treatment also depend on your personal initial situation and your wishes.

Are you interested in breast augmentation and would like to know more about the prices?

Write us a message and make your appointment! Only in the context of a medical examination can we give you a personal and binding estimate that is tailored to you!

Prices for breast augmentation start from CHF 9,300.- A specific, bespoke offer will be made to you after a personal consultation with clinical examination.
