When is breast augmentation indicated?
Breast augmentation is one of the most common and coveted cosmetic surgeries. It is suitable in cases where the breast is small as well as in cases of unequal size. It is also recommended therapeutically in the restoration of breast tumor after great weight loss. This operation is achieved by placing silicone implants under or above the pectoral muscle, depending on the patient’s desire, as well as the anatomical structures of the area.
The ideal size of silicone implants to be placed in the person concerned is the result of good communication between patient and surgeon.
Silicone implants are inserted through imperceptible incisions in the skin that are easily covered or are already within normal folds of the skin.
Silicone implants are safe and there is no risk of rejection by the body, as long as the surgeon recommends world-renowned implants that have undergone repeated studies and have excellent results. This is a fundamental rule for a conscientious surgeon who provides maximum care to his patients.
Surgery and rehabilitation
The surgery lasts 1.5-2 hours and is performed under general anesthesia. Patients gradually return to their daily activities the next day and return to work in about a week. The sensation of pain is minimal and is treated with simple painkillers. In some cases, the recovery time may be shorter. Exercise can begin about 3 weeks after surgery. The signs of the operation gradually disappear within a few months.
