Breast augmentation or breast implants with silicone implants is a procedure prescribed  to women, who are not comfortable with the looks of their breasts and want to have a breast that looks firmer, symmetrically better, and bulky.

Should you be a woman looking for this sort of breast implants, I know there could be endless questions that may drive you crazy. However, with this article, I would like to discuss a few of them and I would let you know how to have a breast of your dreams. Before I can start, I want you to make sure that this surgery can solve many of your breast size related problems that is easy to leave, but demands extra care and is little expensive. But, when it is about your looks and confidence, nothing can be extra expensive.

Before choosing a specific breast implant, it is good to know that the final outcome of surgery breast augmentation is decisively influenced by the size and type of implant. In this regard, although most women want to get as large breasts, sometimes choosing oversize breast implants can create an unnatural appearance disproportionately. Therefore, it is good that the patient must follow the surgeon’s recommendations and choose an appropriate size of implants. Regarding the second factor influencing the outcome, namely the choice of breast implant, explained below are variants you can choose from.

Depending on the material they are made, there are 2 types of breast implants: silicone implants and implants with saline. Breast implants with saline were considered in the past the main method of reshaping and breast enlargement. This is because if a rupture occurs, the serum can be absorbed smoothly by the body. However, these types of breast implants did not provide a natural feeling when touched and had the risk of wrinkles. Due to technological evolution, saline breast implants are no longer used as breast implants.

The implants with silicone are currently the most modern and used as breast implants. They contain an elastic coating on the outside of various textures and internally cohesive silicone gel that has the ability to stop the flow and deformation. Besides this advantage, silicone implants mimic very well to touch and feel of natural breasts. In turn, the type of silicone breast implants can be divided into two categories: anatomical and round.

Anatomic Breast Implant

This is the option you must choose when you want to correct a ptosis (sagging breasts), but when the patient wants her breasts to gain more natural looks. The natural appearance offered by anatomical implants result both in the form of “pear” or “tear” them, and from their height. Thus, as compared to the round breast implant, anatomic offers a discreet cleavage, an aesthetically genuine and appealing look. In any of the situations listed above, choose anatomic breast implant. An expert plastic surgeon will analyze the quality of the skin and breast, circumference, chest height and patient weight. On the basis of these, he will recommend a suitable implant type.

Round Breast Implant

When you want breast augmentation in the form distinct, the patient may choose round breast implant. These types of breast implants are identical texture and content of silicon, but unlike what the anatomical presents a perfect circumference equal. Thanks to round implants of this type, these implants fill the obviously top of the neck and allow breasts to gain a bulky and well-defined look. Before you choose the volume of a round breast implant, you should know that you have access to a wide range of sizes and profiles. Thus, the volume can vary between 90 and even 800 cc (cubic centimeters), and projection of 2 to 6 cm. Of course, the type of breast implant should be chosen with care. Just as with anatomic implant, from measurements, the surgeon will take into account your wishes and recommend which type of implant suits you better round.

The ideal breast implants candidate must have a state SILICON physical and good mental health. She must not be pregnant and must not have breast cancer. Also, the minimum age for carrying out the operation is at least 18 years, and last, but not the least, do not exaggerate the expectations.

Before Breast Implant Surgery

Before any breast implant, at least one surgeon must assess the health of the patient and you must explain your surgeon about every disease, allergies, and medical treatments of the past and present. After evaluation, if the patient qualifies in terms of health, the surgeon then details the technical interventions and what kind of breast implants will match the anatomy of the body. After clarifying the above aspects and others the similar, you can proceed to analyzes : breast ultrasound, electrocardiogram, chest X-ray , complete blood count, test coagulation, urea, glucose, AST, ALT, TBIL, Ca, Ca, Na, other investigations. A few weeks before the implant discontinuation of smoking, contraceptives and or aspirin-containing anti-inflammatory drugs is recommended.

After Breast Implant Surgery 

The recovery period after surgery is relatively short, and the candidate can resume work after 2 weeks. However, this may differ slightly from case to case, depending on the type of implant surgery, age, sex, skin, genetics, and heredity, physical condition, etc. In the beginning for 3 weeks avoid sexual contacts. Also, during the recovery period choose an appropriate bra. Do not miss to consult your surgeons as prescribed. Also, keep in mind that due to changes that may occur over time (future pregnancy, weight changes, and menopause), breast appearance may change. Thus, aesthetic breast implants may not last forever and is very likely replace them after a period of 10-15 years.

Surgery Risks

The surgery breast implant has more risk, but when you choose a private clinic for cosmetic surgery and a doctor a plastic surgeon with experience in operations breast augmentation, they are significantly reduced. The most common complication is the appearance of “capsular contracture” problem that can occur after 6 months or more. The capsular contracture occurs when the body reacts to the implant by forming a tissue around it. Factors that may contribute to this complication are: biological (related to how healing scar, bacterial – contamination during surgery), the use of certain implants placement, hematoma, and the accumulation of fluid. To mitigate these sorts of risks, it is necessary to follow the recommendation of the surgeon while choosing the type of implant that would fit the anatomy.

Other complications are infections and they can occur when patients turn to some private clinics and state hospitals that do not comply or do not have clear rules in regarding the protocol of hygiene and sterilization. This risk applies in all surgeries, not only when surgery with breast implants. Other risks to be taken into account are those related to general anesthesia, excess bleeding, scarring unfavorable healing cumbersome, rupture or leakage of the implant, pain, but all they can be minimized if the operation is performed by an experienced plastic surgeon doctor.

What silicone implant is right for me? You can find out during the first consultancies, telling your surgeon about your preferences, how you want to look breasts after surgery. Your doctor will measure your bust and will show all existing silicone models. Then, based on your anatomy, will recommend the type, shape and volume that suits you, your while explaining the advantages and disadvantages of each implant model in hand. A lot of women ask whether they can breastfeed after having implants or not? Yes, without any problems, breastfeeding can be done. The price for a breast augmentation surgery with silicone implants varies depending on the type of implant chosen.

Before signing in, do not forget to check whether the price includes all necessary costs of intervention: plastic surgeon fee, all costs related to the facilities offered by the clinic, expenses related to anesthesia, consulting fees for pre- and postoperative , medical equipment post – operative, analysis and medical tests.
