Breast augmentation surgery, also called boob implants, is a surgical procedure to enlarge the breasts. In these applications, Breast Uplift implants are placed under the breast tissue or breast muscles. There may be various reasons for having breast augmentation surgery. Having one breast smaller than the other or having small breasts can cause self-confidence problems in women. It is very important to have open communication with your surgeon to have the right expectations about the breast augmentation process and the image you will encounter afterward. In breast augmentation surgeries, adipose tissue, stem cells in the body itself, or implants containing silicone and saltwater can be used.
How are boob implants performed
In operations where the body’s tissue is used, the fat taken from the fat layer on both sides of the abdomen is placed in the breast tissue. For these adipose tissues to be permanent in their new places, they must be fed with veins. It must be transplanted with stem cells to create new vascularization. Implants may contain saline or a silicone gel enclosed in a silicone sheath. Saline-containing implants are filled with sterile saline fluid after they are in place. An incision is made under the breast, under the arm, or around the nipple to insert the breast implant. Once the incision is made, the surgeon separates your breast tissue from the muscles and connective tissue of your breast, creating a pocket behind or in front of the outermost muscle of the chest wall (pectoral muscle). The surgeon inserts the implant into this pocket and centers it behind the nipple. Saline implants are placed empty and then filled with sterile saline. Silicone implants are pre-filled with silicone gel.
Pain and swelling may occur several weeks after surgery. Bruising may be observed. Scars fade over time, but may not disappear completely. While healing, it is necessary to wear a bandage or sports bra to provide extra support to breast implants and maintain their positioning. Pain relief pain medications can be easily controlled. You can return to work within a few weeks. You should avoid strenuous activities that increase your heart rate or blood pressure for at least two weeks.
