- Breast augmentation
Breast augmentation surgery has been very popular for years. If the patient is dissatisfied with the size or shape of her breasts, surgical breast augmentation may prove to be an excellent solution to the problem and put an end to any complexes on this background.
Implants that are used for this type of treatment look very natural. Most importantly, the patient decides how many sizes she wants to enlarge her breasts. The effect of breast augmentation surgery is permanent.
Breast augmentation – what is it?
Surgical breast augmentation involves inserting implants under the breast gland or under the pectoralis major muscle. In slim people, placing the implant under the muscle improves the shape of the breast without overfilling the upper part of the breast. The inserts are filled with gel-like silicone, have an anatomical or round shape, are of various sizes, and are produced by several manufacturers. Mentor, McGhan and Nagor implants are the most commonly used. During the operation, the surgeon makes an incision in the inframammary crease or periareola. The incision in the inframammary crease allows you to maintain the possibility of breastfeeding. The selection of the size and type of implants depends on the joint decision of the doctor and the patient. It is conditioned primarily by body structure, condition and size of your own breasts.
Breast augmentation – for whom?
Women who are not satisfied with the natural size or shape of their breasts decide to undergo breast augmentation surgery. Surgery is not recommended for people under the age of 22, as the breasts can still grow and develop by then.
Recommendations before the procedure
Before the operation, it is necessary to perform appropriate tests. It is also important to abstain from smoking and taking anticoagulants at least a month before the procedure. On the day of surgery, you must fast – do not eat or drink.
Recommendations after the procedure
The stay in the clinic after surgery is usually one day. Immediately after the procedure, swelling may appear, which should subside after about 2 weeks. Some patients complain of pain (spreading in the chest) immediately after surgery. This is completely natural, because the tissues under which the implant is inserted need time to stretch. Painkillers prescribed by your doctor may be used to relieve pain. Some patients may also experience an overflowing sensation in the breast, numbness and decreased nipple sensation, which resolves over time. After the procedure, the patient should wear a special bra that helps both in the regeneration and the final shape of the appearance of the bust.
Breast enlargement effects
Breasts after surgical augmentation become larger, fuller, firmer and more shapely. The first effects are visible immediately, but you should wait a few weeks after the procedure for the final result.
