When is better to have the silicone implant operation: before or after birth?

Each patient choses when is best depending on the final wanted purpose. An important aspect is the fact that after birth there is the possibility of needing a breast lift, because of the modifications the breast feeding brings to the breasts.

Incisions depend on the chosen breast implant, its size, the patient’s anatomy and the patient’s and surgeon’s preferences.

  1. Choosing the implants: silicone implants (known as ‘silicones’) or implants with physiological serum?
    The size and shape of the implant are very important, that’s why you have to be sincere and open about your expectations in the discussion with the surgeon. The type and the size of the implant will be determined not only by the volume growth that you desire, but especially by the breast anatomy, the skin elasticity and the shape of the body.

The available breast implants are the saline or silicone ones.

  • The saline implants are filled with physiological serum (sterile salt water). The quantity varies, modifying the shape and firmness of the implant. In case a saline implant cracks, this will collapse and it will be naturally eliminated by the body.
  • The silicone implants are filled with elastic gel. This gives a sensation that is closer to the breast’s natural tissue. If the implant presents cracks, the gel will remain in its capsule or can glide in the implant pocket. A silicone implant won’t deflate. If you chose this type of implant it is recommended periodical consultations, to assure you that your implant is intact. An ultrasound or and MRI can evaluate the state of your implant.
  1. Inserting and placing the implant
    After making the incision, the implant is inserted in a special created pocket:
  • Under the pectoral muscle (submuscular)
  • Directly under the mammary tissue (behind the mammary gland), on the pectoral muscle

The chosen method differs, depending on the type of the implant, its size and your surgeon’s recommendations. The incisions are closed in multiple layers by sutures and adhesive stripes, and in time, the incisions lines will become more visible. The result of breast augmentation (breast size increasing) is immediately visible. In time, the post operatory swelling retreats, and the scars will fade.

Recovery

Although there are more factors that influence your recovery, most probable you will need a 24-48 hours interval to recover from the operation and a period of few days of reducing the daily activities. It is possible that the post surgical pain and swelling might last few weeks. The physical effort and normal activity can be retake at your surgeon’s recommendation. Meanwhile, the post surgical swelling will diminish, and the scars will fade.

You will receive specific instruction regarding recovery, that will include: post surgical care, medicine for reducing the infection risk and for healing, likewise the post operatory consultations from the plastic surgeon.

Respecting the surgeon’s indications is the key to the success of your operation. It is important that the surgical incisions not be subjected to trauma, friction or movement during your recovery period. Your doctor will give you all the needed indications for the recovery period.

The results of breast augmentation are long lasting, and you will dare to wear certain outfits or bathing suits. Like other women who chose breast augmentation, you will observe an increasing of self trust.
