Best Results from Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery is the most popular form of cosmetic surgery taking place around the world. However as is with any form of surgery there is no standard set that can determine how well the surgery has been performed since there are so many variables involved including those that vary from one woman to another. This is why before any surgery there is a lot of preparation and pre-consultation to be done by the recipient if they wish to have their desired aesthetic outcome. The following article will go over some of the most common variables to be considered by the recipient so she can get the best results of breast augmentation and prevent post surgery complications.

[nextpage title=”Know What Cup Size you Desire”]

Breast augmentation literally translates into enhancing breast size so this would be a major variable. Deciding which size to go with is one of the hardest decisions to take for both the patient and the doctor. The reason behind this is that bra cup size is not a standard measurement for breast size. Different bra manufacturers and even different bras of the same manufacturer will fit differently on different sized breasts. For instance one manufacturer’s 34C could fit you the same as another’s 32D bra. Your plastic surgeon will of course want to know what cup size you desire, but that will only give them a general idea and not an exact specification.

By letting your surgeon determine breast size, and present with you options that would aesthetically suitable for your body type with all measurements you have the advantage of having a more beautiful final result. In giving you a range of sizes in terms of ml of implant fluid, you can be better make s choice within that given volume range. Communication between you and your surgeon is of paramount importance here. The chances of you being pleased with your result will increase a lot. But before the surgery there is no guarantee for final size.

Plastic surgeons make use of implant sizers to determine final and desired breast size. They do that after taking all required measurements. One way of doing that is by bringing two of your tightest sport bras to the pre-consultation appointment where your surgeon will provide you with a range of sizers that you will try on in order to get to the desired volume of implant needed.

It is completely normal for breasts to be asymmetrical and your surgeon will remind you that when taking measurements. If there is major difference in symmetry between both breasts then cosmetic surgery can correct that. But you will have to accept the fact that your breasts will be asymmetrical even after surgery and no one will notice the slight difference except you.

[nextpage title=”Pre-operative Breast Testing”]

Since most patients for breast augmentation are within the 30-39 age demographic, a mammogram is required from you if you are within that age range. Before getting your breast augmentation, schedule a mammogram long before surgery instead of just a couple of weeks before it. At this age, a surprisingly large number of women display signs of abnormalities that are displayed through a mammogram and for which they have to undergo various other tests or biopsies to remove them. Mammograms only determine whether a woman is cleared to go for surgery, and most of the times the results is positive. But it is important to get that away with way before elective breast surgery since you do not want to deal with that on short notice or even after breast augmentation surgery. You will be doing yourself a favor by doing it well in advance.

[nextpage title=”Preventing Infection:”]

Every surgeon’s (and patient’s) primary concern is to reduce the risk of infection after breast augmentation. Prescribed painkillers and antibiotics as well as a procedure done at a certified clinic by a certified surgeon will lower the chances of infection greatly.

  • Surgeons will use a couple of antibiotics in a course that is set for a couple of weeks that should be followed completely in order to avoid infection completely. The antibiotics will be prescribed depending on their availability in the region of practice. An example of a pair of antibiotics used are; Ciprofloxacin and Kefzol . Two antibiotics are used in order to eliminate every possible risk of infection and are mainly aimed at preventing at Staph Aureus from happening.
  • Vancomycin may also be used by your surgeon to prevent staph Aureus from happening during surgery by washing out the implant area with that agent. The agent is essential in fighting all the strains of Staph Aureus as well as staph epidermidis (which is blamed for capsular contracture)
  • For those patients with breast acne their surgeon will prescribe an antibiotic called Bactrim that will help clear away the acne for a couple of weeks prior to surgery. Acne contains bacteria that may lead to infections in the surgical site, so it’s imperative to bring that up at your pre-consultation.
  • If you have your surgery at a cosmetic clinic such as Dubai Cosmetic Surgery and not in a hospital that would also handle infected cases then the chances of you getting infection are also lowered.

[nextpage title=”Reducing Post Surgery Complications”]

Capsular Contracture:

Breast implants are sometimes prone to contracture (hardening of implants) and up till now there is no valid theory that explains why it happens. Most plastic surgeons agree that it is due to bacterial contamination that takes place during surgery. Hence, preventing any possibility of contamination will reduce the chances of contracture. Make sure you communicate that with your doctor.

Certain exercises for implant displacement may also decrease the rate at which natural capsular contracture takes place hence keeping your breasts soft for longer. Ask your surgeon for instructions on these exercises so they may help you until you can be able to do them after recovery from breast augmentation.

Deflation (for Saline Implants):

Deflation of saline implants can be evaded by overfilling the implants, as per the manufacturer’s recommendation for breast augmentation, with an ounce of fluid (up to 30 CCs). This is possible by choosing an implant smaller than the size you are looking for and overfilling it to that amount.

Rippling (Wrinkling):

Rippling occurs when implants placed too close under the skin add weight to breast skin and overtime it stretches and sags resulting in wrinkles. Overfilling (for saline implants) may reduce the possibility of rippling, whereas smooth implants also have lower rippling chances rather than textured ones. If you have a higher risk of developing rippling complications then consider cohesive gel-silicone implants which have a much lower possibility of rippling in breast augmentation surgery.

For those women who do not have a lot of breast tissue (which means small breasts), they ought to consider avoiding the placement of implants directly under the skin and instead go for sub-muscular implants.

There are various other tips for before and after surgery you can follow for getting the best results for breast augmentation surgery.

  • You will find a wealth of photo galleries on cosmetic sites all over the web including ours. By browsing these galleries you will be able to find breasts of your shape and proportion that can aid you in creating an idea of how you would look after surgery.
  • Get a blood test before surgery to see if you are good to go for surgery and know well you can heal from surgery.
  • Take certain medications (painkillers and antibiotics) after surgery and avoid current medications (diet pills, aspirin, herbal supplements, blood thinning and anti-inflammatory drugs)
  • Stop smoking for at least 2 months before surgery since it interferes with the healing process, quit smoking for good since it is not good for you either way.
  • After surgery you will find that it is quite difficult to find a comfortable sleeping position. For those who sleep on their stomach especially this will be hard. The best alternative to sleeping comfortably will be on a recliner or by propping yourself up on pillows.
  • Avoid wearing bras after surgery especially the wired ones for at least 2 weeks.
  • In the week right after surgery, expect to look worse before looking better. From a few hours after surgery up until 3 or 5 days you will begin to swell. After the first week the swelling will subside naturally you can aid the process by taking painkillers and other prescriptions to numb the pain and reduce swelling.
  • Do not restrict the range of motion of your arms since lack of blood flow will not only decrease the rate of recovery but will also result in stiffer arms with higher chance of tissue tear in case of sudden movement. Plastic surgeons will recommend women to gently exercise their arms regularly. This exercise is done by slowly raising your arms above your head making use of a “climbing the wall” technique by your finger. Shortly after surgery, sit down next to a wall and slowly climb up the vertical wall using your fingers in a little man figure. Tyr to climb it as high as you can every day. Please discuss this with your surgeon first and find out exactly the range of motion you are allowed for complete recovery.
