Breast Surgery is a popular plastic surgery the operation designed to increase breast size and also improve shape. It performed under general anesthesia, and most patients go home on the same day. During the operation, a small incision made under the chest in the natural fold of the chest. The implant is inserted above the muscle or just below the muscle. The incisions are closed with dissolving resorbable sutures, and a simple tape applied to the
There are many different shapes and sizes of breast implants, and the breast implant is compatible with your goals for surgery, in other words, what kind of Look you expect and also your natural anatomy. At the end of the operation, a bra used to support the breasts, but there are no other dressings and drains. Patients often go home on the day of surgery, and I recommend taking a week off.
Breast Surgery is a routine procedure, and the vast majority of patients pass without any problems. However,
there are some complications that you need to be aware of, and these include general things such as infection or bleeding. They are very rare in breast augmentation surgery occurring in about 1 in 100 patients, but perhaps one reason why you need to go back to the theater.
There are complications related to the implant. The implants we use today are very durable and sturdy, but in a minority of cases, they can pierce or form scar tissue around them that deforms the chest. This is called capsular contracture and is one of the most common reasons why patients go through an examination. Some things are common to all patients. These include having a certain degree of numbness of the pacifier of the skin around the chest. This situation usually improves from six weeks to six months.
There will also be swelling, and it takes several weeks and months to settle down. Another common problem is that breast implants are often sitting too high at first, and they take some time to settle into their natural position. This process is called fluff and drops. In a minority of patients, bleeding after the procedure can lead to swelling of the chest pocket around the implant and require an additional operation to remove the blood clot. Approximately 15% of patients who have breast augmentation surgery will have an examination within 10 to 15 years.
The scar is minimal, about 4cm, and is placed directly in the fold under the chest. Over time, the scar disappears, and due to its location,
he becomes very discreet. Pain is very subjective and varies from
one patient to another. Most patients need regular analgesics for the first time.
Four or five days. On the fourth or fifth day, most patients are relatively free of pain, moving
comfortably, no need for more analgesia.
Implants are often seated high, and it takes time for them to settle in a more natural position. This process takes about six months. I generally recommend that patients take a week off from work, and that’s four or five weeks before they can return to intense exercise like lifting weights, running, and swimming. This is an omnipresent and essential issue. I tell all my patients that they have to expect another operation at some point in their lives.
However, if there are no problems with implants, and patients are satisfied with The Shape of their breasts, there is no need for revision or redirection of surgery. Approximately 15-20% of patients will have a revision procedure within 10-15 years.
The most common reason for this is the scar tissue around the implant, which can deform the shape of the chest and make it hard. This is called capsular contracture. Another reason, but less common, is that the implant may rupture, and sometimes patients just want a change in the size of their implant or a new breast remodeling procedure, such as an elevator.
