Breast augmentation – breast lift and augmentation

Breast augmentation – breast lift and augmentation


Aesthetic values ​​vary from country to country, especially for women

In the Levant, the female with colored eyes is considered one of the beautiful ladies, and in Africa the beautiful girl is seen as having a full body.

While the prominent breast of women is considered one of the recognized feminine characteristics in all the world, but bad eating habits and genetic problems may affect the shape and appearance of the breast in many women.

Therapeutic drugs and organic preparations were not an effective solution, especially for those who wanted tangible and real results

Here, modern medical systems and plastic surgery provided what became known as the breast augmentation process

What is breast augmentation? Breast augmentation surgery 

Also known as hypertrophic mammoplasty, it is a surgical procedure performed under complete anesthesia to increase the size of the breast and involves placing implants, often silicone or saline bags, under the breast tissue or chest muscles. It is also done by another mechanism, which is the injection of self-fat or filler injection under the tissues of the breasts. To increase volume and roundness


Breast augmentation risks 

Like many plastic surgeries, there are several potential risks for breast augmentation, and the possibility of them increasing when we choose the place where we will perform the operation quickly without knowing the doctor’s experience and the hospital’s logistical capabilities

The most important of these risks

Scarring of silicone tissue that distorts the shape of the breast implant (capsular contracture)

And the poor type of silicone or saline implant is the main cause of this problem, so you have to make sure of the quality of the materials used


How do you prepare for breast augmentation?

You’ll talk with a plastic surgeon about your preferences for the size, texture and rotation of your breasts. Your surgeon will prescribe certain types of implants: smooth, granular, round, teardrop-shaped, saline or silicone.

Before deciding to undergo surgery, you should know the following:

Breast implants will not prevent breasts from sagging. The surgeon may recommend a breast lift operation alongside breast augmentation to treat sagging *

*There is no guarantee that breast implants will last for life. The average life span of a breast implant is approximately 10 years, after which you must undergo an operation

*Breast implants may hinder breastfeeding and some women may succeed in breastfeeding their babies after breast augmentation. While others find it difficult to breastfeed, this is due to the age and condition of the body

*You may need an initial mammogram before undergoing surgery. Your doctor may also adjust some medications before surgery. For example, you should avoid taking aspirin or other blood-thinning drugs and refrain from smoking, green tea and alcohol

How is breast augmentation performed?

It is performed under general anesthesia in a hospital equipped by a specialized plastic surgeon

The doctor will make one incision (incision) to insert the breast implant in one of the following three locations, depending on the desired shape

The fold under the breast

under the arm (axillary)

around the nipple

After opening this incision, the surgeon will separate the breast tissue from the chest muscles and connective tissue. This creates a pocket behind or in front of the outer chest wall muscle (pectoral muscle). The surgeon will insert the implant into this pocket and position its center behind the nipple

Saline implants are inserted empty, then filled with a sterile saline solution as soon as they are in place. Silicone implants are pre-filled with silicone gel.

After the implant is in place, the surgeon closes the incision – usually with stitches – and bandages it with adhesive tape.

After breast augmentation surgery

It is possible that the swelling will continue for a few weeks after the operation. Bruising can also appear. The scars are expected to fade, but they won’t go away completely

Wearing a compression bandage or a sports bra (stan) may help during recovery to provide more support and keep the breast implants in place.

Follow your doctor’s instructions about resuming your usual activities. If your job does not require excessive physical activity, you may be able to return to work within a few weeks. Also, avoid strenuous activity — any activity that can raise your heart rate or blood pressure — for at least two weeks. And remember during the recovery period that your breasts will be sensitive to physical contact or jerky movements, so sex and swimming are among the taboos three weeks after the operation.
