The ideal candidates are those women who want to increase the size of their breasts, for different reasons:
Women who feel that their breast size is too small or out of proportion to their body.
Women with insufficient development.
Women with congenital asymmetry.
Women with slightly sagging breasts.
Women whose breast size and shape have changed after childbirth and lactation.
After carrying out the preoperative tests and their due control with the doctor, about two weeks before surgery, patients should stop smoking or drinking alcohol to reduce the risk of blood clots or infection.
Certain medicines such as aspirin or anti-inflammatories should also be avoided because they can increase the risk of bleeding. It is also important to arrange transfer to the hospital on the day of the operation and, conveniently, have someone who can stay with the patient the first night after the operation. Finally, it should be noted that patients who are on long-term treatments will also be supervised by the physician who will decide whether or not to suppress the medication being taken prior to surgery.
Breast augmentation surgery is normally carried out with a hospital stay and under general anesthesia. The technical details of the intervention will depend on the method that you and your surgeon have chosen. Depending on the case, the surgeon will make a small incision in the breast fold, armpit or areola and the implant will be placed behind the breast tissue or under the muscle.
Immediately after surgery, the patient will be taken to a recovery room for a short period of time and then to a general room to monitor her progress. Consult with your plastic surgeon all the pertinent details and your specific needs in the general information appointments.
As with any other surgery, there are some risks associated with breast augmentation. Possible complications include reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, infection, and changes in breast or nipple sensation.
One of the most common risks associated with breast augmentation is prosthesis encapsulation, which occurs when scar tissue that forms immediately around the implant can contract, causing the prosthesis to become round, firm, and possibly painful.
Many of the side effects of breast augmentation such as swelling, redness, scarring, or hardness will gradually disappear over time. It is therefore important to discuss with the surgeon the risks and benefits of the breast augmentation operation before undergoing the surgical procedure.
The implants do not interfere with lactation, so a baby can be breastfed perfectly after surgery.
The return to work can be done between 3 and 4 days after surgery.
This must be treated by the patient and the surgeon, the size of the prosthesis must be based on the constitution of the patient to achieve a harmonious result.
