Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentations are usually performed with silicone prosthetic implants in order balance out uneven breasts, to correct aesthetically displeasing breasts and to remove deformations.
There are two types of prosthetic implants. One of them is a gel prosthetic filled with silicone, and the other one is a prosthetic implant containing a saline solution. You can determine which prosthetic will be the most suitable together with your doctor.
Before the breast augmentation operation the breast tissue is checked using a mammogram. The aim of this test to check for possible problems and to determine your prosthetic implants.
A mild pain may be experienced after the operation. After an operation where the prosthetic implants were placed behind the breast muscle, arm movement may be limited for a couple of days. Bandages are applied over treated area. A pad may be applied to the nipple. The bandages are replaced after two days and the wound is taken care of. All bandages can be removed after one week. The patient can return to her daily life after four days. The stitches are removed after ten days.
Swelling, bruising and loss of sensation are common after a breast operation. These symptoms disappear quickly. Heavy exercise is not recommended for three months. Scarring caused by the operation will heal within one year.
Problems with the prosthetic implants rarely occur in breast augmentation plastic surgeries. Hardening of the operated breasts may occur. In order to correct these problems, the implants are removed with an operation, after which they are cleaned or new implants are placed.

The doctor who realized the operation recommends regular massaging of the are to soften the tissue. The prosthetic implants are made from a material resistant to blows. Eight weeks after the operation the patient is allowed to lay on their stomach again. Ruptures of the prosthetic implants may occur in traffic accidents, heavy injury or puncturing wounds. In this case, the quality of the used prosthetic implants are of vital importance.
