Indications for breast enlargement

  • Small breast size.
  • Age-related changes.
  • Rapid weight loss.
  • Volume and shape deterioration after childbirth.
  • Acquired or congenital asymmetry of the mammary glands.

Breast Augmentation Surgery Technology

Before the operation, the patient must go through a preliminary consultation. In addition to seeing a plastic surgeon, be sure to consult an anesthetist.

Breast augmentation is classified as an important surgical procedure under general anesthesia. Because of this, there are a number of tests that you should do before you get breast augmentation.

These are mainly:

  • Biochemical and general analysis of blood and urine.
  • Breast fluorography.
  • Examination by a gynecologist and oncologist-mammologist.
  • Electrocardiographic Study.

In addition, an analysis is carried out for the possible occurrence of an allergic reaction to the drugs used. If you are taking certain medications, be sure to tell your doctor about them.

Before the operation, the goals of the operation are also discussed and implants and fillers are selected.

A few weeks before the operation, the patient should stop smoking and drink alcohol. Before having breast augmentation surgery, it is better to follow a low-calorie diet that will help cleanse the body.

Breast augmentation is based on endoprosthetics. The implant is located under the pectoralis major muscle or under the mammary gland.

The following operating methods are distinguished at the point of access:

  • Installation through armpit access.
  • Installation through periareolar access.
  • Installation via sub-mammary access.

The type of access is determined individually by the plastic surgeon. In most cases, the incision is made in the areola or armpit.

Before and after breast augmentation

Rehabilitation after breast augmentation

Immediately after the operation, the patient is brought to the ward. She is under the supervision of a doctor for 5 days. After two weeks, the doctors remove the postoperative sutures.

In the first few days after the operation, the formation of hematomas and swelling in the seam area is possible. This problem does not require additional treatment, soon they will go on on their own.

After the operation, a special tension bandage is applied to the chest. After removing the stitches, a "medical" bra must be worn that will maintain the correct shape of the breast. Such underwear must be worn for several months.

Pain and tenderness may occur immediately after breast augmentation. Over time, all of these sensations will go away.

The rehabilitation period is short. You can do simple household chores within a week of the operation. You can evaluate the end result in a few months. This is due to the fact that at this point the implant takes root and a new mammary gland is formed.
