Breast surgery

Plastic surgery

The aim of plastic surgery in general is the renovation and/or the remodeling of the face and the silhouette of subjects in good health.

This is different from reconstructive and repair surgery,which is to restore what nature, disease or a trauma has taken away or deformed.

Only doctors qualified in plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery and registered by the order are allowed to practice this specialty.

There are many techniques and non surgical alternatives in cosmetic surgery which can be proposed according to each case.

Dr Legaillard's practice combines the most effective current techniques of intervention to provide, with a very developed artistic and aesthetic sense, the best solutions for the needs of his patients.
Dr Legaillard has been practicing breast augmentation surgery for over 20 years in Bordeaux.

Breast correction may be carried out with or without mammary implants.

Today, an increase in breast size uses mammary prosthesis which are round or anatomical made out of silicone-gel, or using a technique without implant by lipofilling (this technique has strict criteria according to the age of the patient).


Breast plastic surgery is a safe and time tested procedure, but it also requires extreme aestheticism and sensitivity. Every patient is unique, and the results they anticipate must be catered for individually in order to attain the patient's ideal.

The Expression of femininity ...Breast surgery interventions practiced by Doctor Philippe Legaillard are based principally on the ethos of aestheticism and of beauty than purely results based on technical and safety considerations, in order to attain the best results of long term wellbeing and self confidence.
