Breast augmentation with implants requires consultation with a plastic surgeon. The implantation of implants is associated not only with the elimination of complexes related to too small breasts, but also enables breast reduction with implants, which is a frequent indication for its implementation. Especially women after pregnancy and breastfeeding are struggling with an altered appearance of the breasts, which is not always aesthetic. It is also worth remembering that implant placement is used in the case of breast reconstruction, because of a mastectomy or after injuries and congenital defects affecting the aesthetics of the breast. Also, if you want to:
- improve the proportion of your breasts,
- change the shape and volume of the bust,
- straighten the symmetry of the breasts,
- lift the breasts, reducing excess skin,
- enlarge or reduce the size of your natural breasts
and you want to forget about the complexes related to too small or too large breasts once and for all, the procedure of breast augmentation or reduction with implants will be an excellent decision.
Implant placement is considered a surgical operation. For this reason, proper preparation is required. During the consultation before the surgery, the doctor makes a thorough analysis of the patient’s health. For this purpose, it is necessary to perform specialized tests also in terms of oncology. If there are no health contraindications for the procedure, the doctor selects the appropriate type of implant. It should depend on the patient’s age, health condition and lifestyle. Of course, the patient’s expectations are also taken into account. After selecting the type, shape and size of the implant, the date of the surgery is set. Shortly before it, guidelines are marked on the patient’s body.
The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia. Implants are inserted under the skin using incisions and creating a sub-muscle or supramuscular pocket. After placing the implant under the skin, the doctor checks its position, then closes the blood vessels and sutures the wound. In the case of an operation aimed at reducing the breasts, excess skin is removed, sometimes also part of the gland. In such a situation, it is formed higher, which is why this procedure is called breast lifting with implants. After the new shape of the breast is formed, an implant is inserted. After the surgery is finished, dressings and a special bra are put on. The operation lasts about 2 hours and is performed under the close supervision of an anaesthesiologist.
The results of breast augmentation surgery with implants are visible to the naked eye. However, the patient must stay in a special bra until the wounds heal, the stitches are pulled down and any edema disappears. About 1-2 weeks after the procedure, the patient can drive the car and return to work and daily activities, excluding high physical activity. After this time, you can already see the new shape and size of the breasts.
After the swelling has completely subsided, it will be perfectly visible to align the symmetry, lift and the new shape of the breast. The procedure of enlarging and reducing the breast with implants primarily results in the self-acceptance of the patient’s appearance and visible changes in the figure.
It is worth emphasizing the fact that implanted implants remain intact for many years, therefore the effects last for a long time and it is not necessary to repeat the treatment.
If you are looking for a way to change the size and appearance of your breasts, breast augmentation with implants will be the best and long-lasting solution that will meet your expectations.
