Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical operation that enlarges the breasts. Breast implants are inserted beneath the breast tissue or chest muscles.

Some people may benefit from breast augmentation to boost their confidence. Others see it as part of the process of rebuilding the breast in order to alleviate a variety of issues.

If you're considering breast augmentation, consult with a plastic surgeon at CARE Hospitals. Make sure you understand everything about surgery, including potential risks, complications, and post-operative care.

Breast augmentation could benefit you in the following ways:

  • Improve your appearance if you believe your breasts are little or that one is smaller than the other. This will influence how you dress or the sort of bra required to cope with the asymmetry.

  • Make allowances for a decrease in the size of your breasts following pregnancy or severe weight loss.

  • After breast surgery to correct unequal breasts.

  • Increase your self-esteem.

Risks

Breast augmentation has the following risks-

  • Scar tissue or the capsular contracture can alter the breast implants.

  • Infection causing breast soreness

  • Alterations in nipple and breast feeling

  • Changes in implant position

  • Implant rupture or leakage

  • Correcting these issues can lead to surgeries or other implants.

Symptoms 

There are certain symptoms that can indicate a drawback or a risk factor post-breast augmentation. There are two common things that one may experience if you have an implant done wrong.

  • Breast implant with Anaplastic Large cell lymphoma 

  • Breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma is the medical term for this disorder (BIA-ALCL). 

  • The FDA believes that women who have textured breast implants have a very low but increased chance of getting BIA-ALCL. 

  • However, this does not imply that these implants are the cause of BIA-ALCL. 

  • More research is needed to determine the link between the illness and breast implants.

  • Breast implant illness

  • Breast implants may cause systemic symptoms, sometimes known as breast implant sickness. 

  • The precise association between these symptoms and breast implants is unknown. 

  • Fatigue, memory loss, skin rash, difficulty concentrating and rationalizing, and joint discomfort can be experienced if you’ve breast implant illness.

  • The discomfort may be alleviated if the breast implants are removed.

Diagnosis 

Doctors at CARE Hospitals in India would take a full diagnostic exam before the surgery. These examinations include- physical examinations, imaging procedures, and other secondary examinations related to the preliminary results.

  • Physical examinations would include routine urine, blood, and other biological fluid tests. Your blood pressure, sugar level, fever, and other illnesses would be considered before the procedure. 

  • The type of medication and family history of the person is also analyzed before the surgery. 

  • If the doctor sees any issue prior to the procedure, he may recommend other medications before the surgery.

  • After all the analysis and diagnoses, you’ll be prepared for the surgery.

  • You'll meet with a plastic surgeon at CARE Hospitals to discuss your choices for the size, feel, and appearance of your breasts. The surgeon will detail various types of implants — smooth or textured, round or teardrop-shaped, saline or silicone — as well as surgical procedures.

  • A baseline of the mammogram is taken before the operation to see the diagnosis. Doctors can also recommend certain drugs and stop the dosages accordingly. 

  • Before 6 weeks, you will be asked to not smoke.

Treatment 

During

  • A single cut or an incision is made to insert the breast implant. This can be done in one of the three places- inframammary, axillary, and periareolar. (These are creases under the breasts, under the arm, or around the nipple respectively.) 

  • Following an incision, the surgeon will separate your breast tissue from the muscles and connective tissue of your chest. This produces a pocket behind or in front of the outermost muscle of the chest wall (pectoral muscle). The implant will be placed in this pocket and centred behind your nipple by the surgeon.

  • Saline implants are implanted empty and subsequently filled with sterile salt water once in place. Silicone has silicone gels.

  • When the implant is in place, the surgeon will heal the incision with stitches (sutures) and wrap it with skin adhesive and surgical tape.

After 

  • Soreness and oedema are likely for a few weeks following surgery. Bruising is also a possibility. Scars will lessen over time but will not totally disappear.

  • Wearing a compression bandage or sports bra for added support and positioning of the breast implants may be beneficial while you are recuperating. The doctor at CARE Hospitals may recommend pain relievers.

  • Follow your surgeon's recommendations for resuming normal activities. If you don't have a physically demanding job, you might be able to return to work in a few weeks. 

  • Avoid intense activity — anything that could elevate your pulse or blood pressure — for at least two weeks. While you're recuperating, keep in mind that your breasts will be sensitive to physical contact or jarring movements.
