Breast augmentation is operated to compensate for insufficient breast tissue development, either since puberty or for loss of volume due to circumstances such as pregnancy, loss of weight or hormone changes. Augmentation with implants is the most used and most effective form of breast enlargement. The most extensively used and new generation implants in the world today are silicone implants with a coherent silicone gel within. The new generation of implants is secure not only in definitions of their material, but also in terms of their outer wall, which does not lead any leakage.
Breast augmentation surgery is done under general anesthesia and the duration of operation is 1 to 1,5 hours. Normally 1 night of hospital stay is expected. Aspirin or any anticoagulatory should not be used from 15 days prior to the surgery. Also, anti-inflammatory medicines, Omega – 3 supplements should not be used 1 week before operation. It is also advised to give up or reduce smoking a few days before surgery.
Why it's done
After the procedure
Soreness and swelling are likely for a few weeks after surgery. Bruising is possible, too. Expect scars to fade over time but not disappear completely. While you are recovering, it may help to wear a compression bandage or sports bra for additional breast implant support and positioning. Your doctor can recommend pain medication as well.
Follow your doctor's directions to get back to regular practices. If you don't have a physically demanding job, you may be able to get back to work in a couple of weeks. Prevent strenuous activity — anything that could increase your heartbeat or blood pressure — for at least two weeks. While you're recovering, note that your breasts will be responsive to physical contact.
Breast enlargement will change the size and form of your breasts. The operation can boost your body image and self-esteem.
