The »ideal« breast shape, as we know it from actresses and models, is by nature just as rare as ‘normal’ breasts. There are many different shapes that vary by breadth of bosom, the height, colour and size of nipples, the distance between the breasts, their weight and skin structure.
Not only can breasts be too large or too small, but they can also be malformed. Most malformations occur either at puberty or are congenital. Among these, the tuberous breast (lat. tubulus, small tube), the lack of lower tissue portions and breast asymmetry are most common. A complete absence of breast on one side (Poland syndrome) is rare.
In all such cases, the correction of the shape is not limited to a simple augmentation of the breast, as the mammary gland needs to be significantly remodelled. At best, this can be achieved through a small incision underneath the breast. The experienced breast surgery specialists at Park-Klinik Birkenwerder/Berlin provide surgical correction options for any kind of malformation.
It does not necessarily have to be silicone! In 2007, Dr. med. Klaus Ueberreiter developed a procedure to more gently collect fat cells via body jet liposuction, the so-called BEAULI™ Method. This is the procedure we prefer to use in patients after mastectomy, for breast augmentation or breast corrections.
If you are thinking about a breast augmentation, we suggest that you seek thorough advice by one of the experts at the Park-Klinik Birkenwerder/Berlin. Which shape would fit the proportions of your body? Would you also like to get a breast lift? Which implants are suitable for you and where should the incision be located? We will inform you about all the different options available. Decide for a breast augmentation with a natural, beautiful result.
You would like to get a breast augmentation but you dislike silicone implants? In this case, the breast augmentation using autologous fat grafting might be an alternative for you. In this method, small amounts of fat cells located in other parts of your body – such as thighs or buttocks – are used for the reconstruction of the breast. We have developed our own method to achieve ideal and safe results – a method that has already proved successful in hundreds of treatments.
A breast that is too heavy and large can be very distressing. Apart from the negative impact on self-confidence, it can also lead to back pains and postural defects. After pregnancy and lactation, many women would like to get a breast reduction or a breast lift. Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the size or shape of a breast significantly through dieting or exercising. A surgical reduction of the breasts is the solution to give you back your confidence and your good posture.
Women with congenital malformations of the breast are seeking breast correction that will allow them to feel beautiful and attractive. Such corrections are feasible for all types of malformations but they require a lot of experience and expertise on the part of the surgeon. In many of these cases, a simple augmentation of the breast is not sufficient, and the breast has to be fully reconstructed. This can also be done at the Park-Klinik Birkenwerder/Berlin.
There are different reasons for the absence of one breast such as congenital malformations, diseases or accidents that caused the loss of a breast. Only very few women resign themselves to such a fate. If prostheses to be used in pocketed lingerie are not an option for you, you could consider surgical breast reconstruction. Almost always, the reconstruction of both breasts is also feasible. The choice of procedure depends on various factors and is always decided on a case-by-case basis.
Dorsal warts are mainly an aesthetic problem and are associated with no medical complications. You can cause problems when breastfeeding, if the warts do not straighten up and the infant food intake is difficult. If an outward-facing nipple changes to be permanently inward (“confiscation”), this may be an indication of the presence of breast cancer and is usually the cause of further investigation.
Gynecomastia is the propagation of mammary gland tissue in men. These enlarged breasts are usually distressing for the men affected and have a negative impact on their self-confidence. Prior to a surgical intervention, the surgeon first has to make sure that the respective case is a genuine case of gynecomastia and not an accumulation of fat that can develop in overweight or obese men. Even in a genuine case, several other treatment options will be attempted initially. A removal is only justified, once all of them have failed and the patient is significantly suffering from his enlarged breasts.
