When you have breast augmentation surgery it’s carried out under a general anaesthetic and will last about 50 minutes.
During the surgery:
A 5-6cm incision is made beneath the breast tissue
This incision allows the surgeon to access the tissue behind the breast
A pocket is created behind the breast tissue or behind the main muscle of the chest
The implant can then be placed carefully inside this pocket
The incision is finally skillfully closed with dissolvable sutures
You’ll be discharged the same day as your surgery and you’ll be able to shower and drive by the morning after.
How to prepare for breast augmentation surgery
Here’s a quick guide so you know how to be prepared for your breast augmentation surgery
2 weeks before your operation
1 week before your operation
It’s recommended that you take 1gm of vitamin C twice a day. This will help improve wound healing.
If your surgery is in the morning it’s a good idea to shower the night before using a medicated shower gel or body scrub. You should also wash your hair and remove any nail polish before surgery.
On the day of surgery
On the day of your surgery make sure you dress in loose clothing and wear a zip-up top or cardigan instead of a pullover. Lifting your arms might be sore after surgery so you want to make recovery as easy as possible. It’s better to wear a sports bra after surgery too so be sure to pack one along with toiletries if you’re staying overnight.
After the operation, you’ll be discharged the same day and we advise that a friend drives you home from the hospital. Most patients won’t have any bruising after surgery but occasionally some patients will under their breasts.
There might be a small bit of swelling within the breasts and your skin might feel tight during recovery but this will relax after the first week and your breasts will return to their more natural appearance.
Painkillers might be needed during your first 5 days of recovery but you’ll be able to resume driving and light work the day after surgery.
You should avoid lifting heavy weights like shopping bags until you’re fully healed. You should also wait until the day after to shower.
You’ll have a check-up with Dr Salman after your first week and by now most patients go back to work.
By week 6 you’ll have your final review appointment with Dr Salman and the majority of swelling should have gone down.
Breast augmentation (also known as boob jobs) can benefit anybody who’s looking to feel more comfortable in their own skin in regard to their breasts. Whether you want to increase the size of your breasts, correct asymmetrical breasts, or restore your breast’s natural volume breast augmentation surgery can help you.
During your breast surgery consultation, your full medical history is examined to make sure you’re an appropriate candidate.
Then you’ll have a breast examination which will allow your doctor to assess the characteristics of your breast tissue as well as the size and shape of your rib cage.
You’ll also be able to choose your preferred implant size, shape and projection during your consultation. Once you’ve chosen you can try on a special garment that allows you to see and feel what your new breasts will be like.
During your consultation, you are in the driver’s seat. Feel free to ask as many questions as you like. Your doctor will address any concerns you might have so you can be confident about the choice you’re making.
There are always risks with any surgery, no matter how safe it is. These risks can include infection, scarring, and pain. If you’re worried about complications during your breast surgery then talk with your doctor and they’ll explain all the risks to you to help you make an informed decision.
This varies from patient to patient, and will be discussed with you during your consultation.
Implants are available as either round or teardrop in shape. Your doctor will run through everything you need to know about the types of implants we have in your initial consultation.
Here at Auralia, we know that the quality of breast implants is a crucial factor when it comes to the health and happiness of our patients. We only use the best implants at our practice so our patients are guaranteed high-quality care.
Your breast implant will not rupture on an aeroplane and this is a common misconception. Breast implants are perfectly safe for flying and you’ll be able to travel with no issues.
However, it is not recommended that you take flights longer than 5 hours in the first week post-surgery.
Breast implants are placed below the mammary gland so they won’t interfere with breastfeeding.
If your job involves light office work they can go back to work within 3-4 days. You can go back to more intense work after 7 days.
You won’t be able to exercise straight after breast implant surgery and you’ll only be able to resume exercise or go back to the gym 4-5 weeks post-operation.
