What is Breast Augmentation surgery?
Firstly, breast augmentation recovery and surgery in Antalya Medworld Clinic, Turkey is the most prevalent among esthetic surgeries. It means placing large breast protheses under the patient’s breast tissue to augment the breast size. It is important to specify the most appropriate surgery technique, depending on the patient’s necessities and desires. Thus, surgeons and patients can get the best results without having any problems during the procedure.
Furthermore, teenager that are still in puberty may not be a good candidate for breast augmentation recovery because their body is still growing. Hence, their body can not complete breast development properly. Also, people with polycystic over syndrome may not get the expected result besides underlying genetic reasons.
In addition to these, menopause, breastfeeding and pregnancy adversely affect the breast form. Because of these, breast volume can decrease. For this reason, as an aesthetic operation, patients prefer breast augmentation to have larger, more symmetric, more pleasing and proportional to their body. On the other hand, some patients can have breast surgery because of an innate developmental issue.
The main objective of aesthetic surgeries is to regain patients’ self-confidence and give them the look they desire.
Breast Augmentation Procedure
On the purpose of the patient’s comfort, surgeons prefer general anesthesia during the breast augmentation surgery. Although some patients can experience some side effects like pain in the muscles, nausea, headache, and vomiting, they are temporary.
As a beginning, surgeons generally make a cut unnoticeable underside of the breast, although it is sometime made around the areola. On the other hand, incision size varies depending on the breast prothesis size.
- Inserting the breast implant
Additionally, there are three types of breast augmentation surgery procedures. Surgeons can place the breast implants under the breast tissue, or half the breast tissue and the muscle, or the breast muscles. Hence, patients should discuss which surgical operation is better for their expectations with their doctors before their breast augmentation surgery.
- Closing the incision
Finally, surgeons suture the incision or closed the incision with other medical methods, depending on the patient’s and the surgeon’s decision.
- Noticing the difference
As soon as the surgery finishes, the result is easily visible. Nonetheless, breast implants settle and have a more natural look in time. In addition to all of these, patients should follow the doctor’s instructions meticulously during the recovery process to get the best expected result from the breast augmentation surgery.
How Long Is the Recovery?
After completing the surgery, your breasts will be bandaged, and you will be asked to wear an elastic bra that reduces swelling and offers support to the breasts. Moreover, most of the patients experience more pain and discomfort during the initial three days. Therefore, painkillers and antibiotics are prescribed to control this pain.
Usually, it takes about a week to get back to the normal routine and work. Additionally, you can walk as an exercise during the recovery process, but avoid rigorous activities like aerobics. Nevertheless, you should not lift heavy loads during the first ten days of recovery. Also, it is advisable to take a week off from work. Your surgeon will also suggest some vitamins that will aid the process of recovery.
