BREAST CORRECTION: POST-OPERATIVE CARES
A breast correction takes about an hour and is done under general anaesthesia. You will be able to go home the same day.
The first few days after the breast correction, especially after a submuscular placing, the breast can feel sore and tense. The plastic surgeon will therefore prescribe some effective painkillers to ease the pain.
Even if the breasts are not painful then you will feel a strong sensation of tightness.
The stitches will be removed two weeks after the breast correction. Then, the scars can be carefully massaged with a moisturizing lotion. This can expedite the healing process.
The first four weeks after the breast correction you need to wear a special support bra, day and night. This bra is measured on immediately after the surgery so that it can support the breast and preserve the swelling.
If you have round breast prostheses, the bra can be taken off daily, after two days, to wash the bra or to take a shower. If you have anatomic breast implants, however, you need to wait a week. This way, the optimum positioning of the breast prosthesis will be guaranteed.
Until six weeks after the breast correction you need to avoid sports, high reaching and heavy exertions. Sleeping on the tummy is also advised against during the first few weeks. Most women go back to work after a week.
The result of a breast augmentation can be truly seen from two to three months after the surgery. This delay is necessary for the breasts to become softer and for the implants to settle. Breast prostheses are quickly experienced as a part of the body.
A breast augmentation affects the figure in general and more elegant clothes can be worn. Most women feel more confident and their feminity will get a boost.
Breast examination will still be possible after the surgery.
I first heard about Beaucare through a friend who had their augmentation last year. I have wanted breast implants since I can remember and after coming back off holiday (fed up with how i feel in a bikini!) I decided to book a consultation. My consultation was great,
i had time to ask all the questions I wanted and found out about the rough recommended size implants etc.
The following day I emailed Beaucare to book a surgery date! I booked the op for about 5 weeks time and paid the deposit. All was really smooth and easy to do. I opted for Dr Sara Ulens as my surgeon and she was amazing. I had to travel to Brussels and did so the night before the op, stayed in a lovely hotel The Lodge Vilvoorde, would definitely recommend.
On the day of the surgery I arrived at the clinic, I was so surprised how modern, clean and fresh it was, both me and my mum were really impressed. I then had a lengthly conversation with Dr Ulens and she recommended the best implants for me based on my measurements etc. I opted for 260cc moderate profiles as I didnt do this for big boobs I just wanted some boobs there that still look natural! My surgery went great and before I knew it I was awake, having to travel back to the hotel was abit annoying as I was so weak but wasn't realy a problem. I travelled home the next day on the Eurostar fine!
I am now 2 weeks post op and am now feeling almost fully recovered! Had my dressings removed yesterday and am so pleased with my scars so far, quite small and not massively noticeable! All in all i would highly recommend Beaucare, the service at the clinic was amazing and they are always on hand via email to answer any questions I have! As well as the price being a lot cheaper than in the UK, I chose the clinic because I felt they really was the best and most natural looking results compared to some UK cosmetic companies I had
consultations with. My size is perfect, im now a 32c and am sooo pleased i finally done it!! Good luck to anyone going ahead with it, best thing I've done!
