How is the intervention?
Breast augmentation or also called mammoplasty is becoming more and more common in our country, with almost 20,000 operations of this type performed annually.
The breast is considered a very important part of a woman's body. Most of them take into account the picture of your breasts and their proportionality. For this reason, many of them who suffer from the so-called hypoplasty or small breast since they are young seek over the years to remedy this disproportionality.
Although a priori it may seem a complicated or dangerous operation, nothing is further from reality. It is a very simple as long as it is done by professionals. It does not have to last more than an hour or an hour and a half, although as in all treatments and operations, it depends on the patient in question. It is very important to note that the person who undergoes breast augmentation must have a fully developed body, this development being both physically and psychologically.
To perform breast augmentation, an incision is made around the areola or under the breast, this being the space through which the prosthesis that has been selected will be placed. For this, the patient will have general anesthesia and will not feel any pain at the time the doctor performs his function.
Regarding the previous preparation, the patient will simply have to spend the night before under observation to prepare the intervention. The preparation will be very basic and simple since, as explained above, it is a simple operation in which there are no risks.
Types of implants
The mammoplasty It can be performed with different types of implants that will be selected taking into account the patient and the purpose that is desired. It should be noted that there are different types of fabrications, guarantees and materials, as well as the shape of breast prostheses.
If we have to make a difference in terms of the shape of the prostheses, we will highlight the following:
Round that always fill the cleavage more and that are the most used in mastopexy with prostheses. Special care must be taken with them in thinner patients, as their shape can be somewhat more artificial depending on the proportion of these with the patient's body.
Anatomical that stand out for their naturalness and are ideal for patients who are thin as they present a greater naturalness and simplicity. Unlike the round ones, this type of prosthesis reveals its birth from the neckline itself.
If we highlight the difference in terms of the material with which these implants are manufactured, we distinguish two:
Silicone that is the most common and at the same time the most natural and that prevents the filling from spilling in the event of breakage.
Saline serum that is less common since with the passage of time it can begin to flaccid and the chest may begin to sag.
It is important to also talk about the duration of implants. It should be noted that as always it depends on each patient and that the prostheses themselves do not have an expiration date, but it is recommended that routine check-ups be carried out to see that everything is correct. Many experts point out that the life of a prosthesis can range from 15 to 30 years, although it is true that today they are covered with polyurethane for cases in which the implants are given some other problem.
Increase with own fat
Breast augmentation can be done not only with implants but also with your own fat. Opting for this type of increase also has advantages:
➕ Natural appearance since it does not stop being body fat.
➕ Sensation to the touch since a change in touch is not noticeable because it is the skin of the body itself.
➕ Almost invisible scar.
As the main disadvantage of this type of augmentation, we highlight that the postoperative period must be carried out in two areas, in the area from which the fat is extracted and from which it is implanted.
Advantages of breast augmentation
✅ Surgery without complications.
✅ Few days of hospitalization.
✅ Duration of implants.
✅ You will feel good again looking in the mirror.
✅ You will increase your self-esteem.
Like all interventions, breast augmentation also has a postoperative period. Although in this case it is a fairly simple recovery, it is important to clarify that the patient - always based on her profile - will notice pain in the intervened area for 4 or 5 days. In the same way and as far as return to work is concerned, it will take 5 to 7 days to rejoin. If we talk about returning to a regular routine such as exercising or leading a life like the one before the increase, it will take almost a month, but it is always recommended that you visit the doctor and perform several check-ups with him since it will be your evolution that determines your return to the routine.
During the first days and even weeks we will observe a shape in the implants that will not be the definitive one since little by little it will become more natural and adapt to the skin. After three months, you will already find the definitive appearance of your new breasts, although it will be much earlier when you begin to notice their natural appearance more. The Doctor will advise you on which bra you should wear during the first month or which chest band you should purchase.
