What is breasts enlargment?
Breast enlargment is among the female population the most popular surgical procedure. From year to year, the number of surgical procedures increases, so according to some data, breast augmentation is ranked first in the list of the most popular aesthetic interventions around the world. Women’s breast augmentation is most often decided to improve appearance and increase self-confidence. Unhappiness with your own chest comes after sudden weight loss and after breastfeeding, and then surgical intervention can be of great help. Although breast augmentation is an aesthetic procedure, it is very important to know about it before going to surgery and to consult with the surgeon. The success of the procedure is almost one-hundredth, and such a figure is the result of quality consultations, a top surgeon’s job, and realistic expectations. Conversely, unpleasant consequences or dissatisfaction with the changes can occur.
When you have decided to undergo surgery, about two months before the procedure, stop smoking, and your surgeon will most recommend taking aspirin and herbal preparations two weeks before surgery. Do not eat or drink on the day of surgery.
Breast enlargment does not only change the volume of the breast, but it also corrects the shape and the fullness. Perfectly performed breast augmentation improves all three items, and for a complete and perfect result it is first necessary to determine the patient’s expectations. The surgeon and the patient must together make a decision about the size of the implant that will be placed under the breast tissue. It is the size of the implant that is crucial for a successful operation. Patient expectations therefore need to be realistic because too large implants can cause problems after surgery. Each tissue can carry a certain size of implanted. If it exceeds the size, the implants may become visible or cause chest tightness after a certain time. As far as the operation itself is concerned, it lasts two to three hours in most cases. General anesthesia is given to the patient before the start of the procedure. The cut is made in the lower edge of the nipple and sometimes under the armpits. After that, implants are placed. Depending on the type and size of implants, they can be placed below the tissue or under the muscles.
Implants can be divided according to different criteria such as texture, shape and volume. When texture is concerned, the most common choice of patient and surgeon is the silicone implants filled with viscous silicone gel. The reason for this is the most natural appearance and the smallest visibility of implants over the skin. On the other hand, these trends show in the United States, the more frequent choice of patients are implants filled with physiological saline. It is a process in which an empty implant is first placed underneath the chest muscle or chest gland and then filled with a specific solution at the patient’s wishes. The implant can be filled with sterile salty, polypropylene or some other solution that is rarely used to increase the breast. European data again reveal the popularity of implants filled with a cohesive viscous silicone gel. Again, the best choice for your breasts will come in consultation with your surgeon. When you choose the size of the implants and its texture, it remains to choose one of two shapes.
Unlike the anatomy, the round implants are more safe as far as possible complications are concerned and more financially advantageous. Anatomically, implants work more naturally because of a somewhat wider lower part, but are more noticeable than round.
Recovery process and helpful tips
Complete recovery from surgery can last between four and six weeks, but the painful period usually lasts only a few days. The first symptoms that occur immediately after the operation are pain, swelling, underarms and difficulty breathing. Sleep and pain medications are of great help in the first phase of recovery after surgery. After a few days, the second stage takes place in which a special compressive bra needs to be worn. It keeps the implants in place and allows for gradual return to old habits, doing jobs and the like. Most often, surgeons will also be advised to exercise lightly during this recovery phase, which usually lasts for two weeks. The third stage may take so much more, and it is most important that you do not expose yourself to heavy physical efforts or to lifting heavy loads.
Please note that recovery is completely individual and how each person may have different symptoms at a different time period.
It is important, however, after surgery to continue contact with the surgeon and notify him of any symptoms or possible complications. What can be visible for a certain time after these six weeks is the scars that will be visible after a few months.
What to expect after surgery? The results of breast enlargement are really great throughout the world.
Between 75 and 85% of patients are satisfied with the changes that have been made thanks to aesthetic surgery.
The number of complications is negligible and the vast majority of patients became happier and with greater confidence in years after surgery. Implants last for at least ten years, and a change may be required in cases when an implantable cracking occurs. As with recovery, depending on how the body accepts the implants and the lifestyle, the lifespan of the implants differs from person to person.
