How to do breast augmentation surgery

The breast implant can be placed above or below the chest muscle. Where we should place the implant depends on how your breast looks and what you want it to be. You decide this in consultation with the surgeon.

The implant is usually inserted through an incision in the groove under the breast. It leaves a very slightly visible scar of 4-6 cm, depending on the size of the implant. In the first consultation, we explain the operation in detail. Then we agree on the type and size of the implant we will use.

You can have a beekeeper with (spouse, family member, friend, etc.). Yes, we do indeed, because it has been shown through verbal information that one does not always “hear” the same thing. At least one week should pass from the preliminary examination to your operation. When ordering surgery, you must sign a statement of consent.

Can my chest be examined after such an operation?

Interpreting a mammogram can be difficult when placed over the pectoral muscle. However, there are other methods of examining the breast, including an MRI scan and an ultrasound scan. However, not all regions recommend supplementing mammography with these studies. Therefore, you may run the risk of having to pay the additional inspection fee yourself.

Before the operation, remember…

You should meet rested and hungry, that is, you should not eat 6 hours before the operation.
However, we recommend that you drink water/sweet fruit juice up to 2 hours before the operation.
The whole body should be washed with soap the morning before the operation. Avoid makeup and nail polish for the sake of equipment used for observation during operation. You should wear loose clothing that should not go over your head and avoid wearing jewelry.
Do not take blood thinners and fish oil for two weeks before the operation due to the risk of bleeding. Avoid alcohol the day before surgery. Quitting tobacco consumption of any kind before and after surgery gives a better recovery and therefore a better outcome.

You are under general anesthesia during the operation.

Course after surgery

You will be observed in the clinic. You will be discharged when you are ready. We suggest you edit it for collection.

There should be someone who can look after you for the first 24 hours after surgery. Immediately after the operation, the breast will be swollen and tender. Pain is treated with tablets dispensed in the clinic.

In case of sudden severe pain in the chest, rapidly growing swelling and discoloration, please contact the clinic, your operating surgeon or another doctor. This is very rare.

A sports bra is applied as a bandage. You should use it day and night for 5-6 weeks, the first 3 weeks, then only during the day.

We recommend covering the scars with microporous plasters (angel skin) for 2-3 months after the surgery. This will help make the scars as little visible as possible. Underwire bras are only approx. 2 months

After 6 weeks, you can do sports / stay in shape again. For 6 months, you need to protect the scars from the sun with a microporous plaster or factor cream.

Depending on the nature of the job, you should expect to be unable to work 1-2 weeks after the procedure.

What complications can occur?

Complications associated with breast augmentation surgery with implants are rare, but can include bleeding, infection, and capsule formation.

If the breast becomes red, hot, and swollen, it could be a sign of infection. It is manifested by bleeding, discoloration and swelling of the breast. In case of bleeding, contact your surgeon with the direct phone number given to you regarding your surgery.

If capsule shrinkage occurs, e.g. If there is a hard feeling in the chest, it may be necessary to operate again.

How long does the operation take?

The durability of the operation can vary and depends, among other things. your age, the elasticity of your skin, your weight, before and after the procedure, smoking and childbirth, breastfeeding, etc.

Because healing is unpredictable, we cannot guarantee that the implants will fit exactly the same on both sides, so a small asymmetry may occur.
