Of all the possible plastic surgery interventions, breast augmentation is undoubtedly the most popular procedure. Of course, breasts are the most visible sign of femininity and, if due to some circumstances (age-related changes, weight loss), this sign is practically absent or does not live up to expectations, then for the patient this is tantamount to underestimation of self-evaluation.
Very often, women who decide to have a breast change operation rely on plastic surgery as a magic wand, which will help them overcome internal psychological discomfort. Many patients, in search of harmony with themselves, go to the procedure contrary to the advice of her husband, family or friend. Before deciding on an operation, one must be aware that breast prostheses are certainly not a way out of serious psychological problems.
Who is recommended for breast plastic surgery?
Breast augmentation is a type of intervention specifically recommended for:
- small breasts;
- underdeveloped breasts;
- breast, which has decreased in volume over time.
To perform such an operation effectively, it is necessary that the mammary gland is fully formed, that means after 18 years.
Before surgery, the patient consults with a plastic surgeon regarding the type, size and shape of the prosthesis. The doctor evaluates the size of the breast and the constitution of the body as a whole, then determines whether there are defects in the position and asymmetry of the mammary glands.
Recommendations before breast surgery
Two weeks before the operation and two weeks after it, it is forbidden to take aspirin and birth control pills, since the drugs affect blood coagulation and can cause complications during the operation.
Before surgery, it is necessary to conduct a series of clinical tests that determine the physical condition of the woman, as well as an ECG, if necessary, an x-ray of the chest. The surgeon must provide the patient with clear and complete information regarding the risk of using breast implants (for example, loss of sensitivity of the areola and nipple, capsular contracture, rupture of the prosthesis, etc.).
How is the operation going?
Breast augmentation surgery can be performed under general anesthesia, or under local anesthesia. Duration - from one to two hours. We must be prepared for the fact that after the intervention during the first few days, the breast may look slightly higher than usual, but after 3 to 6 weeks it will settle down naturally.
If the operation took place under general anesthesia, then on the first day after the intervention, the patient is required to maintain absolute bed rest. Food should be light. Perhaps the appointment of painkillers and antibiotics. After the examination, the next day, the patient can go home.
3 - 5 days after discharge, it is necessary to come for a control examination and removal of part of the sutures. If you went in for sport before, then after the operation, in order to resume your classes, you will have to wait from three to six weeks. You will also have to temporarily stop wearing compression underwear and taking warm baths.
