What should you know about a breast augmentation? What happens during the first consultation?
Female breast is maybe the most important symbol of sexuality and femininity; it is natural that every lady desires an aesthetic, pretty décolletage. However, genetics or the passage of time often works against us. An unsatisfactory shape or size may even cause psychological problems, which lead to the loss of self-confidence, relationship problems and the deterioration of a fulfilling sexual life. The breast augmentation by implants offers an opportunity for enhancing the size of the breast, eliminating asymmetry, or for a necessary correction after childbearing and breastfeeding.
On the basis of the examination performed during the first consultation our plastic surgeon shows you the different implant types, recommends the most suitable breast enhancement surgery for you, and you choose the most appropriate breast implants together. When choosing the right size and type of the implant, the plastic surgeon will take into account your bodily conditions, the build-up of your breasts, and your personal desires. At the consultation you have the chance to see the reference photos of the plastic surgeon.
Preparing for the breast enlargement
Before the breast augmentation you must attend a complete medical check-up. The reason for this is to find out whether you have any health problems that could have an influence on the breast enlargement. All preliminary examinations are made at our Plastic Surgery Institute, saving you the pains of queuing and waiting in other health centers. In the course of the examination laboratory tests, and as occasion requires, other examinations (ECG, X-ray, breast ultrasound, mammography, etc.) are performed on the basis of the suggestion of the plastic surgeon.
In certain cases we advise our patients to change their lifestyle in the days preceding the breast enhancement. To facilitate proper recovery, it is important that you do not smoke, because nicotine slows down the processes of regeneration and harmfully influences the healing of the wound. In the days before the breast augmentation you should eat light foods, drink lots of fluids and take some vitamins (vitamin C, selenium, zinc). Two weeks before the breast enlargement you should avoid the use of aspirin, ginko biloba and other naturopathic products.
The breast augmentation
In the course of the breast augmentation we supplement the lacking volume by the insertion of implants. Breast enlargement is performed under general anesthesia in all cases. In our Plastic Surgery Institute our surgeons use the most modern American, German or Brazilian implants for which the manufacturer undertakes a lifelong guarantee. As for their shape, they can be round or drop-shaped, the surface of them might be textured or polyurethane foam which are the most long-lasting implants of our time.
The techniques of the breast enhancement
The technique of the operation means the choice and localization of the necessary incisions. The insertion method of the implant is determined by the plastic surgeon performing the breast augmentation. When choosing the appropriate technique he takes into account your personal genetic givens and the structure of your breast. The implant may be inserted either through a few centimeter-long incision made under the breast, or an incision made around the nipples in the shape of the semicircle. It can be inserted under the gland stock or the pectoral muscle. The breast enlargement usually takes an hour and is performed under general anesthesia.
Recovery and risks of the breast augmentation
In our Plastic Surgery Institute we aim to make the period after the breast enlargement as convenient as possible for you. In order to do this, a waterproof bandage is placed on the wounds, so you can even have a shower at home. After the breast augmentation you must spend one night in our Plastic Surgery Institute. To achieve the perfect result and look we work with self-absorbing stitches, this way the scars heal much more aesthetically and we save you the possible inconveniences of the stitch removal. After the breast enhancement you must wear a special bra for 4 weeks, which is provided by our institute.
In the first 2 weeks of the recovery all demanding physical activities must be avoided. After 2 weeks you can gradually return to your previous lifestyle. After three weeks you can start to do light exercises. Sunbathing, the use of solarium and sauna must be avoided for 2 months. After the breast enlargement you have to attend control examinations on the 7th and 14th day, and the 6th and 12th week. The recovery time of the outer scars is 6 months, while the inner scars heal completely in 2 years. To facilitate the healing of the wound it is advisable to use scar creams.
Before the breast augmentation we aim to filter out the possible risk factors with preliminary examinations but even so unpredictable complications may occur. Breast augmentations count as routine plastic surgery procedures and the occurrence of complications is extremely slight, but it cannot be excluded. These complications can be the following: infection, oedema, serous oedema, the formation of a keloid scar, temporary alteration regarding the sensitivity of the nipples, and asymmetry between the two breasts.
The results of the breast enlargement
After the breast augmentation women can be proud of the most beautiful symbol of their femininity again, their self-confidence increases, which, according to the feedback of our guests, has a positive effect in every field of their lives. After the breast enhancement a thin, inconspicuous scar is left on the skin at some visible and invisible places. The scars are permanent, but they will fade with time. The breasts will obtain their final shape after half a year.
