Breast augmentation can restore the shape and appearance of your breasts following surgery or after pregnancy, make them the same size as each other, or increase the overall size of your breasts.
The team at Woodlands Hand To Shoulder Foot and Ankle Center also performs breast augmentation surgery to correct the effects of aging, which can cause your breasts to lose their fullness. In addition, this procedure can improve the shape of your bust if you've lost a lot of weight.
To be a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery, you need to be physically healthy so the procedure doesn't have any adverse effects. You also need to be emotionally and psychologically prepared and have realistic expectations of what breast augmentation surgery can achieve.
Breast augmentation surgery takes place under a general anesthetic, so you're asleep during your operation. When you're unconscious, your surgeon makes an incision below your breast, allowing your breast to hide the scar after your surgery.
Other possible ways of accessing the breast include areas around the areola or under your armpit.
Implants take various forms, including silicone gel or saline pouches or a fat transfer. The implant your surgeon uses depends on what you hope to achieve from breast augmentation.
Your surgeon inserts the implant into the incision beneath your breast. They may place it under the pectoral muscle on your chest or over the pectoral muscle and behind the breast tissue. After ensuring the implant is in position, your surgeon sutures the wound, and you go to the recovery area.
After having breast augmentation surgery, you need to take a couple of days to recover before going back to work or resuming everyday activities. You might develop swelling and bruising around your breasts, but this shouldn't last more than a few days.
Woodlands Hand To Shoulder Foot and Ankle Center provides you with a special bra that supports your breasts for the first few weeks. Your provider can prescribe painkillers for any immediate post-surgical pain, but you can substitute these for over-the-counter pain medicines after a day or two.
For the first month, you should be careful not to overexert yourself, so avoid strenuous exercise. Although you can see a difference in your breasts immediately after breast augmentation surgery, it takes three months to heal completely.
