WHAT HAPPENS BEFORE THE SURGERY
When the dream is becoming a reality
Breasts give women a lot of their charm. Ladies that were not gifted with a plump cleavage or they have lost it due to maternity or strict diet no longer have to cry in front of the mirror. Modern plastic surgery can turn their disadvantage into an advantage in a mere couple of weeks. The first steps on the path to make the dream of a plumper cleavage come true, lead directly to a clinic where you would like the procedure to be performed. You will be taken care of directly by a plastic surgeon (that means the most competent specialist) from the very first moment at the Aesthevita plastic surgery clinic. Be prepared that he/she might identify some of your assumptions as being false. In any case, you will get to know everything you need to make a conclusive decision.
How will I look
Round or teardrop shaped? This is the question you will have to answer during your consultation with the surgeon. There are different types of implants and it is necessary to decide which one fits perfectly with your figure and chest shape. Even if you have a good imagination, take advantage of the opportunity to try how you would feel with bigger breasts. The surgeon will lend you special gel pads – test implants or the so-called sizers. Unusual at first sight? Have a look for a second time, a third time, again and again from all sides. You can start to look forward to your procedure while on your way from the consultation. You took the first step of the journey to being more self-confidence and having a better figure!
Right before the surgery
Here the tough part begins. When the planned date of the procedure is approaching, you will undergo the pre-surgery examination. This involves blood sampling, an ECG and a sonographic examination of the breasts. Women aged over 50 undergo an x-ray of the lungs as well, the age limit for smokers is set at 40. If you fear general anaesthesia, there is no need. Breast augmentation is always performed under general anaesthesia. But as they say: “If others can do it, so can you!”
WHAT IS HAPPENING UNDER THE HANDS OF A SURGEON
You will barely see the scar
The surgeon makes the incision during the procedure along the infra-mammary fold, around the areolar periphery or in the armpit. After he/she carefully introduces and fixes the implant, he/she stitches the wound. After the procedure, the surgeon puts a sterile bandage on the wounds and puts tape on the breasts. Do not worry about any conspicuous scars. Thanks to the place of incision, the scars will be almost invisible and they will resemble a thin white line.
Expect to stay at the clinic overnight after the augmentation. Look at it from the positive side – after the surgery you will have proper rest and the doctor will remove the drains the next day. He/she will put new bandages on the wounds and you will get a compression bra and a compression belt.Make arrangements with your husband or family to take care of you properly for the first days after the surgery. Tell them you are allowed to do almost nothing.
THE WAYS IN WHICH I CAN SUPPORT RECOVERY
Write REST into your calendar
Do not play the hero during recovery and do not attempt to be back to your normal life with the household chores etc. Plan to rest for the whole week after the procedure and do not work or go about your normal duties, even your surgeon will tell you so. It is necessary that your hands remain absolutely steady from the elbows up – no driving, holding children, carrying the shopping bags, ironing... There is a risk that the not yet completely fixed implant could rotate or move.
Healing is under the supervision of a doctor
The surgeon will assess if the healing goes well after a week of a leisurely regime and he/she will give you further instructions. It is then usually not a problem to go back to your job if it is not physically demanding. Do not push yourself too much during the whole period of recovery.
No movement without an elastic bra
An elastic bra which you receive at the clinic and is included in the cost of the procedure will become your inseparable companion for the whole six weeks. It will provide the breasts with sufficient support and it will significantly help the proper healing process after the surgery. Take it off only occasionally and for a while, e. g. to take a shower.
Tip: Get a second compression bra so that you can change them, e.g. when one needs washing. You can minimize the risk of infection only with maximum cleanliness. It is mainly essential during the first days after surgery. You can even wash your bra every day.
Back to sports in 6 weeks
Several weeks of long waiting for a full recovery can seem endless for some women. However, it is really not so long. You should be able to cope with the level of physical exercise you were used to before the procedure 6 weeks after it. It depends on the location of the implants and the individual recommendation of the surgeon.
HOW IT WILL CHANGE MY LIFE
Are “silicone implants” safe?
The first breast augmentation took place in 1963. More than half a century of practice sufficiently verified the safety of silicone implants. Modern technologies provide more advanced types for clients today. The implant is created from a special medicinal silicone that causes no harm to the body. The exception here confirms the rule, so in exceptional cases the implants can be tolerated badly. Those clients then opt for filling the breasts with their own fat, the breasts can be augmented by 0.5 to 1 size during one procedure this way. Many women therefore undergo the surgery again.
Cosmetic products contain more silicone
Some may talk about releasing an exiguous amount of low-molecular silicone in relation with the silicone implants. In fact, the amount is so low that you can hardly compare it with the amount of silicone which our body receives through skin cosmetics, shampoos, etc.
Will I be able to breastfeed?
If you are planning to become a mother in the next few years but you are craving for bigger breasts right now, there is no reason to hesitate. The implants under the mammary gland will not influence its natural function, therefore it does not influence breastfeeding. If the breasts lower after breastfeeding, modelling would return firmness.
Breast with implants look unnatural
This is one of the myths of silicone breast implants and a frequent argument of their opponents. The fact is that when the size or the shape of the implant used is inappropriate it may look unnatural, especially when compared to the figure of the woman. How could this happen? Some clients have unreal expectation about the size of their breasts. If they insist despite professional advice and find a clinic where no is not an answer, the result is horrifying. At clinics like Aesthevita, there are no such cases thanks to the pre-surgery consultations with a plastic surgeon.
The price of the procedure is final, everything necessary is already calculated. It specifically includes the following:
- A consultation with the plastic surgeon
- General anaesthesia
- Compressive postoperative halter garment
