- How to make the breast simetriation operation?
Small incisions are performed in the area around the areola and nipple. In many cases, we use a breast implant, as in the case of breast augmentation, to fill the lower chest and help it to fit the appearance of the normal breast formed. In other cases, the implant may not be necessary to obtain the desired results.
When using an implant, the size and shape of the asymmetric chest can be determined by your plastic surgeon before surgery. It will explain the different types of implants, which are best suited to your particular case. The nipple and the asymmetric breast areola can also be repositioned to fit better with the other breast. Note that there are 2 naturally identical breasts; There will always be slight differences between them. However, your plastic surgeon will strive to make your asymmetric breasts look natural and symmetrical with each other.
The operation of correction of the asymmetric breast is usually carried out under general anesthesia. This outpatient procedure may take several hours to. Your plastic surgeon will discuss this during your personal consultation.
- What do I expect after the operation?
Initially after the breast operation you will feel tired. Some pain may occur and the breast is sensitive to the touch. The plastic surgeon can help you feel more comfortable with the help of prescription medications. You will wear a surgical support bra to provide breast support.
In most cases, you will return home on the day of your operation. The chances are that you will feel the need to sleep and this is the best thing to do in the first and the day after the operation. You may have an altered state for several days afterwards. This is not uncommon because your body is starting to heal. You can also notice a swelling around the breast and bruises may occur. This is also normal and will fall eventually disappearing in a week. Most of the time, patients feel quite comfortable to resume their normal activity a week or 10 days after surgery. Plan your work back for at least a week.
As the newly formed breast heals it will gradually descend into its natural position. Within 3 to 4 weeks, you will look in the mirror and enjoy the results you have discussed and planned with your plastic surgeon-a more appealing chest contour and increased self-confidence!
- Risks and side effects associated with the operation.
All surgical interventions involve some risks, including the development of an infection around the surgical area or an adverse reaction to anesthesia. If these rare situations occur, they can be treated by medications prescribed by your plastic surgeon. An unusual complication after surgical intervention of breast reconstruction is the development of the capsule contration, which determines the scar tissue around the implant to tighten and pressure the implant. The risk decreased due to new implantation technology and stretching exercises.
If the reconstruction has been carried out with a flap, there is a risk that this own tissue does not live consecutively and the new breast is lost. If this happens then there will be a need to apply another method of reconstruction.
