Augmentation mammoplasty is a surgery to increase the size of the breast, also called breast surgery or breast augmentation surgery.
1). Placing a silicone prosthesis behind the muscle or behind the mammary gland. It allows to control the shape of the breast.
2). Lipotrasnference fat in the breast. You can not control the shape of the breast.
3). Applying the BRAVA system, which generates negative pressure in the breasts, increases the size of the breasts. It is long and expensive.
It is a device that contains several layers of silicone or a layer of silicone with saline inside.
Yes, the mammoplasty is ambulatory. In case it is combined with another surgery such as liposuction or tummy tuck requires hospitalization for at least 1 day.
Periareolar approach, a cut is made under the areola, dissected by planes. The prosthesis can be placed behind the gland (retroglandular), the plane in front of the muscle (subfascial) or the plane behind the muscle (retromuscular). Then silicone prosthesis or saline is inserted. This scar is usually not very noticeable. This technique can cause loss of sensation in the nipple. Does not alter breastfeeding.
Approach by the inframammary groove: below the breast, the incision is marked. The breast is dissected until the plane is found to introduce the prosthesis. Its benefits are that it does not alter sensitivity or breastfeeding.
Axillary approach: through the axillary is dissected with an endoscope, used to position the saline implant behind the muscle (retro muscle).
1). The retroglandular technique, the prosthesis is placed behind the gland. It gives a more natural appearance. Generates breasts fall faster over the years.
2). The subfascial technique consists of positioning the implant behind the fascia that covers the pectoral muscle. This technique generally provides greater support to the implant than the retroglandular technique. The prostheses look very natural and the breasts generally fall less quickly than the retroglandular technique due to fascia support. This technique generates little pain.
3). The retromuscular technique places the prosthesis behind the pectoral muscle. It gives a very artificial appearance of the breasts, very full on top of the nipple. Requires postoperative massage.
To calculate the size of the silicone implant, the wishes of the patient are taken into account. There are limits regarding the height of the patient, the width of her chest and the base of the breast.
Risks can range from hemorrhage, infection, dehiscence, collections, breast irregularities, rupture of the prosthesis, silicone migration, large bruises, loss of nipple sensitivity, chronic pain, asymmetry of the breast, impaired healing in the wound, loss of breastfeeding, irregularities in the skin, breast capsule,
Breasts should always look like, but they will never be the same. Being an even organ, always open differences in both. As with other parts of the body that are different such as eyes, ears, eyebrows, feet, hands, etc.
A mammary ultrasound, blood picture, uroanalysis, TP, TPT. It may require if your plastic surgeon requires a chest X-ray, EKG and creatinine.
In his first consultation the plastic and aesthetic surgeon César Fernández will tell you the total price of the surgery.
The use of a postoperative bra is recommended until at least 2 months after surgery.
If you always leave a scar that can be located under the nipple or on the fold in the groove of the breast.
