How Breast Implants can be describe :
Generally Breast Implants is round shape or teardrop shape.
Categorized by Textures of Implants :
Smooth Implants : This Implant type normally moves freely in the pocket, not easily adhered to the pocket's shells. Yet a contraction of this Implant could cause an occurrence of membrane distorting the contour of Implant.
Textured Implants : The rough surface of this implant type would help generating membranes attached to its shell decreasing the occurrence of a Capsular Contracture and prevent the capsule from shrinking (contracting), hence give a softer result.
Categorized by Implant Substances :
Saline : Saline Implants are inflatable Implants, coming with valves and sealing mechanisms hidden in a posterior surface of Implants, so an unwanted leakage could be a concern. Regarding its feeling, this won't be as soft as of Gel's type.
Silicone Gel : This comes pre-filled, meaning that there is no fill to be added and nowhere to be a leakage. In additional, this Implant offers a very soft and natural feeling Breasts.
Methods of Breast Surgery :
Silicone inserted through a breast fold (inframammary) incision : Compared to an under arm (tranaxillary) incision, this approach is less efficient to hide the incision wound, but an incredible recovery-time would be much less.
A most favorite option for world-wide patients, Silicone insertion through an under arm (tranaxillary) incision : This has proofed to gain many advantages in hiding the incision wound, since this is just an inconspicuous area the surgeon easily chose to operate to cover the procedure's traces.
Silicone inserted through an umbilicus : Cost of this surgery method is highest among all other methods.
Silicone insertion through around nipple (periareolas): This is appropriate for any person with large areolas area.
Position of Silicone insertion :
Insertion below (submuscular) the chest wall muscles : This shall give out a most natural and reliable result. The tightness of breasts shall last long more than other methods.
Insertion above (subglandular) the chest wall muscles : This is proper for ones who have ample size of breast. Eventually the breasts, done by this means, shall be quicker sagged than the below (submuscular) the chest wall muscles insertion.
Insertion between muscle layers themselves : This is appropriate with any one possessing sagging breasts.
Strongly caution that the patients must refrain from taking any Aspirin and Ibuprofen - at least one week prior to the surgery day, since both Aspirin and Ibuprofen have high propensity to cause more bleeding.
Stop taking Vitamin E for 3-4 weeks before surgery: Stemming from its function to contribute to the liver, Vit E strongly compromises the body's factor to stop bleeding.
No alcoholic drinks 24 hours ahead of surgery appointment :
In case of surgery through armpit, patients must refrain from shaving armpit hairs for 10-14 days before the surgery ( for prevent the infection)
Armpit shaving must be done at the morning of the surgery day.
Patients should use elevated pillows for sleeping during the first few days post-operative.
After that, any position comfortable to sleep is allowed, even lying prone position ( but must be few days after surgery ).
Strict to the drug timetable - specifically NSAID or Anti-inflammatory drugs, by surgeon's prescription: Ordinary diet can be consumed normally.
Refrain from Alcoholic Drinks, including Smoking which causes a poor wound healing process
Keeping the incision wound dried for 3 to 5 days post-operative : Daily wound-dressing is needed for twice a day - strongly suggests a Betadine for wound anticeptic.
Right after operation, chests must be initially bandaged for 5 to 7 days to quicker reducing the swollen wounds, including tightening the breasts.
One week after the operation, bandages shall be removed, so the patient will be allowed to take a shower. Sport Bra shall be worn from this period.
After suture-removal, patient is recommended to start daily massaging the breasts - for 15 minutes per day. This should be continually done for the next 5 to 6 months, so that the contour and softness of breasts shall be gradually achieved.
