How is it with these breasts?
Usually, we want to have everything smaller – thighs, buttocks, hands, crunches – we serve ourselves restrictive diets, we exercise and generally strive to shrink. Meanwhile, most of us would like to enlarge our bust. In the interwar years, attempts were made to enlarge breasts using various materials: beeswax, ivory, glass, beef cartilage and even teflon. How easily we can guess today – none of these methods did not work. It was not until the sixties that silicone implants were used for breast enlargement for the first time. Dr. Thomas Cronin in 1962 implanted implants Timmy Jean Lindsay, a thirty-year-old mother of six children. In our clinic, patients can use two methods of breast enlargement and modeling. We divide the methods into natural ones, that is, increasing the breast volume with our own fat taken from the patient during liposuction. Enlargement involves injecting fat into the subcutaneous tissue of the breast. Patients usually decide on this method because it carries less complications and the recovery period is easier. However, this method is less durable. Autologous breast augmentation is recommended for patients who want to extend body contouring treatments such as abdominoplasty or liposuction in order to achieve even better results.
Implants – the most popular method of breast augmentation
However, the most popular method of breast augmentation is the implant method. During surgery under general anesthesia, the surgeon places implants under the muscle or under the breast gland, thus obtaining a lasting effect of enlarging and lifting the breast. In our treatment clinic we use Mentor implants with silicone filling. For the procedure, the patient is qualified during the consultation, where the method of breast enlargement is chosen, appropriate implants are selected depending on the desired effect and physical construction of the patient. On the basis of the ultrasound, the state of health of our breasts and their construction are evaluated in order to qualify the patient for the procedure and the appropriate choice of the procedure.
What after the procedure?
The patient after the procedure stays with us for one day, depending on the recommendations, the dressings are put on, and the appropriate post-operative bra is selected. It is also recommended to implement edema therapy, a minimum of 10 lymphatic drainages. One should always be aware that any such procedure carries a risk of complications and it is essential to follow the postoperative recommendations that the patient receives at the clinic with the information card.
