What Is Breast Augmentation?
In most cases, breast augmentation involves depositing an implant or fatty tissue behind each breast. Whether the surgeon places the implants or tissue behind the muscle or not depends on the desired results. If fatty tissue is used, it is harvested from another area of the patient’s body. Implants are silicone or brine-filled sacks that give the breasts either a round or contoured appearance.
What to Expect from the Procedure?
Most breast augmentations are carried out under general anesthetic, although patients can usually undergo the procedure as an outpatient.
Incisions are made either in the armpit, the tissue surrounding the nipples, or just underneath the breasts. A “pocket” is then created by separating the breast tissue from the muscle. The surgeon places the implants in these “pockets” before stitching the incisions with tape or
The “pocket” in the breast is created in one of two possible ways:
● Sublingual — Made directly behind the breast tissue
● Subcutaneous — Made under the muscle in the chest wall
While the sublingual method is quicker, the subcutaneous method delivers a more natural result.
There are many types of breast implants to choose from, so your physician will discuss all the options with you during an initial assessment. They include:
While silicone implants deliver the most natural shape and feel, they have been known to leak.
Saline implants are less life-like, but they’re generally considered to be the best option for long-term success.
What to Expect After Breast Augmentation
Your surgeon will bandage your breasts immediately after surgery. You may be told to wear a sports bra for the first few days.
Most patients are told to refrain from strenuous exercise for at least two weeks. But recovery periods can be longer for some people. You should be able to return to normal activity after a few days, but you may need a little longer if your job involves heavy lifting or strenuous activity.
You’ll see results immediately after your surgery. However, you’ll need to wait for the swelling to subside and for your wounds to heal to see the full effects of your surgery.
Breast implants aren’t designed to last forever. You should therefore watch for any changes to the shape, feel, or appearance of your breasts. Sudden changes might suggest it’s time for replacements.
Health Tips & FAQ
The positioning of the incisions depends on the condition of each patient and will be decided in consultation with the plastic surgeon. Positioning the incisions below the breast is usually the fastest and safest approach that reduces the risk of possible subsequent complications with breastfeeding. The placement of implants through the areola are less noticeable, but can, in turn, cause breastfeeding complications. The discomfort of scarring under the breast is minimal, at the expense of exceptional postoperative symmetry and aesthetic appearance of the breast.
Breast enlargement is often combined with a breast lift procedure and body sculpting procedures such as liposuction or abdominoplasty. When all of these procedures are performed simultaneously, a complete change is created in only one operative intervention known as – A Complete Change of Mom!
Everyone is recovering differently. The length of the recovery period depends on how many procedures were performed simultaneously. The recommended rest period after surgery is one week.
Exercise workouts can be started no earlier than two months after surgery, since in most procedures the implants are placed in the sub muscular space, they need time to stabilize in this position.
Surgeons recommend delaying the purchase of a new bra for at least two months. While the breast is accustomed to the new placement of the implant, it is appropriate to wait and not rush into choosing a bra. Wearing lace bras or banana bras is possible after 3 weeks.
