How does Breast Implants Surgery work?
In the case of breast augmentation, an implant or fat from your body is surgically inserted behind each breast. The implants are located either behind the muscles in your chest or behind the tissues of your natural breasts. This may increase the size of your breast by a cup or more.
You may choose a contoured or round breast implant. The implant material works to increase the size of your breasts as well as to give shape to areas that may have previously felt “empty.”
Keep in mind that breast enlargement is not the same procedure as breast lifting. The lift is working to correct the sagging breasts.
Implants are generally soft, flexible silicone shells that are either saline or silicone-filled. While there has been some controversy surrounding the use of silicone implants, they are still widely popular among people who choose breast augmentation surgery.
Procedure for a Breast Implants Surgery
Under general anesthesia, the operation will most likely be done so that you do not experience any discomfort. In the 24 hours prior to your operation, follow the instructions of your surgeon to plan.
Using one of three types of incisions, your surgeon will insert your breast implants:
- Infra-mammalian (beneath your breast)
- axillary (in the underarm) (in the underarm)
- Periareolar Radius (in the tissue surrounding your nipples)
Your surgeon will then create a pocket by separating your breast tissue from the muscles and tissue of your chest. Inside these pockets, your implants will be positioned and centered inside your breasts.
Your surgeon will fill them with sterile saline solution after the shell has been successfully installed if you have opted for saline implants. They’ll already be filled if you want silicone.
They’ll close the incisions with stitches after your surgeon has successfully positioned your implants, and then bandage them tightly with surgical tape and surgical glue. In recovery, you will be checked and finally allowed to go home once the anesthesia wears down enough.
Are there any risks or side effects?
The need for follow-up surgical procedures to correct any problems that might occur is a common danger with breast augmentation surgery. Some people also later desire a larger size implant or a raise as their skin stretches over time.
Other risks and side effects are:
- Hemorrhages and bruises
- In your breasts, the pain
- Infection at the site of the surgery or around the implant
- Capsular contracture, or scar tissue formation inside the breast (this can cause your implants to become misshapen, displaced, painful, or more visible)
- Rupture or implant leakage
- Changing the sensation in your breasts (often temporary following surgery)
- Wrong implant positioning or movement
- Fluid accumulation around the implant
- The healing challenge at the site of the incision
- Breast discharge or at the incision site
- Severe skin scarring
- Severe nighttime sweating
Recovery of the Breast Implants Surgery
As the anesthetic wears off, painkillers will be given to the patient to relieve the pain.
The patient will not be able to drive after general anesthesia. They’re supposed to arrange for a friend to take them home.
Absorbable or dissolved usually disappear within 6 weeks.
If the patient has sutures that do not dissolve, or if drainage tubes are placed near the breasts, a follow-up appointment will be needed to remove them.
