We wish you pleasant reading.
Pre-Breast Augmentation and Decision-Making Process
Especially breast augmentation surgery is a surgery they prefer frequently because it makes women very happy. Breasts appear differently in every woman like fingerprints. Not only the shape and size of the breast, but also the person’s height, width, breast structure, skin consistency and texture, breast consistency, sagging or uprightness are different. Therefore, each breast must be intervened in its own unique condition.
Women who want breast augmentation to have the most difficulty in determining the size of the silicone to be attached. It is difficult for the patient or the physician to decide this alone. Physician and patient should decide together. They should evaluate the patient’s body structure and wishes for the decision. The plastic surgeon makes the final decision. The physician must have perceived the patient’s wishes well. Because sometimes the patient may not know exactly what he wants. In this case, they first examine the patient’s body structure and then his social status. Accordingly, they decide which size of silicone they will wear. They make the final decision after applying the trial lengths during surgery to the patient.
Since this breast augmentation is not a medical necessity, the physician should focus entirely on patient happiness. Especially with the development of anesthesia science, breast augmentation surgery, like many surgeries, has become very comfortable for the patient. Factors such as less pain, less hospital stay, and faster recovery made life easier for both physicians and patients.
What Kinds of Implants Do They Use in Breast Augmentation Surgeries?
In breast augmentation surgeries, they can use the fat tissue and stem cells in the body itself, as well as implants containing silicone or saline water.
In the operations where they use the body’s own tissue, they place the fat taken from the fat layer on both sides of the abdomen into the breast tissue. In order for these adipose tissues to be permanent in their new places, they must be fed with veins. They are transplanted with stem cells to create new vascularization.
Implants may contain saline or a silicone gel contained in a silicone sheath. They fill the saline-containing implants with sterile saline fluid after they are in place.
Breast Augmentation Operation
To insert the breast implant, your surgeon can make a single incision (incision) in one of three possible locations:
In the fold under your chest,
Under your arm
Around your nipple
After making the incision, the surgeon will separate your breast tissue from the muscles and connective tissue of your breast. This creates a pocket behind or in front of the outermost muscle of the chest wall (pectoral muscle). The surgeon will insert the implant into this pocket and center it behind the nipple.
They insert the saline implants empty and then fill them with sterile saline after they are in place. They pre-fill silicone implants with silicone gel.
After placing the implant in place, the surgeon will close the incision with stitches and bandage it with skin glue and surgical tape. The selection of the incision site is important to minimize scar formation.
Results of Breast Augmentation Surgery
Breast enlargement can change the size and shape of your breasts. Surgery can change your body’s image and increase your self-confidence. Weight gain or loss after surgery can also change the appearance of your breasts. If you are not satisfied with the appearance of your breasts, you may have further surgery to correct these problems.
What Will You Experience After the Operation?
Pain and swelling may occur several weeks after breast augmentation surgery. There may be bruising. Scars fade over time but may not disappear completely.
While healing, it is necessary to wear a compression bandage or sports bra to provide extra support to breast implants and maintain positioning. Your surgeon will recommend the required bra to you.
You should carefully follow your surgeon’s instructions about returning to your routine life. If you do not have a physically demanding job that requires your body to work actively, you can return to work within a few weeks. You should avoid strenuous activities that increase your heart rate or blood pressure for at least two weeks. As you heal, keep in mind that your breasts will be sensitive to physical contact or jolting movements.
If your surgeon has used sutures (stitches) that are not absorbed by the body, or placed drainage tubes near your breasts, you will need a follow-up appointment for removal.
If you notice warmth, redness in your breast or get a fever, you may be having a surgical infection. In such a case, you should contact your surgeon as soon as possible. Likewise, in cases with shortness of breath or chest pain, you should consult the surgeon immediately.
Is There Any Risk of Breast Surgery?
Every surgery has specific complications and risks. Since augmentation plasty is also a surgical procedure, it has a number of risks listed below.
• Scar tissue that distorts the shape of the breast implant (capsular contracture)
• Breast pain
• Changes in nipple and breast sensation
• Implant leakage or rupture
More surgery may be required to correct these complications and to remove or replace implants.
