The breast augmentation surgery will increase the size of the breasts by placing breast implants.
Women can only have their breasts corrected if they no longer develop spontaneously. As from 18 years onwards breast surgery can be carried out. Most women have a breast surgery done once they’ve had children, and this between 30 and 40 years. A breast augmentation is final, but almost never reimbursed by social law. If you change your mind later, you will have to undergo a new operation.
BREAST AUGMENTATION : AFTERCARE
A breast augmentation takes about one hour and is performed under general anesthesia. You could return home the same day of your breast augmentation. You should however be accompanied.
The first couple of days after your breast augmentation – especially for submuscular placement – the breasts will be hard and swollen. The surgeon will prescribe pain killers.
If you have round implants you may take off the supportive bra after two days to shower and wash the bra. If you have teardrop implants you may take off the supportive bra after one week. Wearing well the supportive bra, ensures optimal positioning of the implants.
Most women get back to work one week after their breast augmentation. Stitches are removed two weeks after the breast augmentation. Scars could be gently massaged as from then onwards with a moisturizing cream. This will help to speed up the recovery.
The special supportive bra should be worn for four to six weeks after the breast augmentation. This bra will be put on immediately after your surgery and will help to limit the swelling and to support the breasts. Sports, lifting heavy objects and reaching high should be avoided for six weeks. Also sleeping on your belly should be avoided for the first weeks.
” When can the final result of the breast augmentation be judged? “
The final result of a breast augmentation can only be judged as from six months after the procedure. Swelling will then have completely disappeared and the pectoral muscle will have adapted to the new shape. Breast implants will soon feel as a part of your body. Good to know : the result of a breast augmentation is permanent. A mammography is still possible.
RISKS RELATED TO A BREAST AUGMENTATION
Although complications after breast augmentation are quite exceptional, they do occur. The most common risk is an infection, capsular contracture, rimpling and healing problems. These risks will be well explained by your surgeon at the first consultation. The texture of the breast implant might also influence capsular contracture.
