Being unhappy with your body as a woman is one of the worst things you can face. A woman needs to feel beautiful and instead of getting depressed due to her looks or being unable to accept certain defects, there’s always the possibility of changing it. Breastfeeding can really affect the shape and size of your breasts. If you feel it’s time for a change and are considering breast implants, you need to do your research.
We spoke to experts in the field of breast implants, Helen clinic, to get you the information you need on how to choose the correct breast implants. If you’re considering a breast augmentation surgery, Helen Clinic offers a 10% discounts to all Rahet Bally mamas.
What type of breast implants do you use at Helen clinic?
While there are numerous breast implant types, the most popular ones are silicon implants. At Helen clinics, we use the best types available for our surgeries. The American brand Mentor and the French brand Sebbin are the latest versions available and are recommended due to their smoothness.
What factors affect the breast implant size?
When it comes to choosing the right size for a patient’s breast implants, there are certain factors that need to be taken into consideration. However, it is a matter of comparing between chest diameter and breast volume to ensure that the patient gets a natural look in the end. These are the factors that we take into consideration:
- The patient’s body contouring: Body width, height and rib cage.
- Chest diameters
- Type and shape of breast
- Breast volume
An overly large implant can cause complications, both right after surgery and a few years down the road. Such complications include separation of incision lines and excessive sagging. In order to help a patient determine the actual size and get an idea of the final look, it is best to insert sizers into a bra to get the overall feel of the final look.
Is there an age limit to getting a breast implant?
Anyone can get breast implant, but it’s best to wait until the female has reached puberty. That way, we’ll know the final shape and volume of the breast to be able to make a proper decision.
How do you make the best size recommendation at Helen Clinic?
The size of the silicon implant depends greatly on the patient’s satisfaction but also needs to be suitable with the shape and volume of her body.
After meeting the patient at the clinic and discussing the image she has in mind as well as her fears, we look for any breast ptosis or breast drooping in order to decide the appropriate surgery for the patient.
This can be one of the three surgeries we offer at Helen Clinic:
- Mastopexy: A breast lift that changes the shape of the breast by removing excess skin and reshaping the breast tissue to raise the breasts.
- Mammaplasty: A breast reduction surgery where excess fat, tissue, and skin are removed from the breasts.
- Augmentation: A breast surgery used to increase the breast size by inserting breast implants under the breast tissues or muscles.
If a patient suffers from breast ptosis, silicon implants might be a bad decision as they could lead to the drooping of the silicon implants, too. Based on each patient’s case and their preferences, the clinic recommends the type of surgery needed to get the desired outcome.
Silicon implants are usually placed sub-glandular or under the glands, away from the milk glands to avoid having any effects on breastfeeding. However, there are cases where it is best to place the implants underneath the chest muscle to prevent future ptosis.
How long does the procedure take and how long do the effects last before needing to be redone?

The augmentation surgery is very simple and takes 40 minutes only. The patient even gets to leave the hospital within just a few hours with no or little pain.
The silicon implants have no expiry date and can be kept forever unless the patient needs to remove them for any reason or decides to change the size.
