Breast augmentation (also called augmentation mammoplasty) is a form of plastic surgery performed to change the shape, increase the size and alter the texture of a woman’s breasts.
Breast enhancement is usually performed with the help of saline implants, silicone gel implants and sometimes fat transfer. The surgery carries a successful track record of satisfying women wanting to regain a perfect shape of their breasts and hence is the most popular and commonly performed aesthetic surgical procedure.
In order to prepare you for the surgery, the surgeon may ask you to – • Get a blood test done • Quit smoking • Adjust your present medications or take some specific medications • Deter from using aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs as they can result in bleeding
Moreover, your surgeon will also study, photograph and measure your breasts to hold your medical record. In case you’ve sagging breasts, he/she may recommend you breast lift long with breast augmentation. If you’re planning to lose weight then keep your surgeon informed as you may be asked to stabilize your weight till the time surgery is performed.
The patient usually can continue with her routine life about 1-2 week after the surgery. However, the healing of the cuts made in the chest muscles may take a considerable amount of time and you will be asked not to exercise or engage in physical activities for 1-2 months.
Apart from that, regular exercise of arms is encouraged to ease pain and discomfort.
