Augmentation Mammoplasty (Silicon Prothesis Application)
Augmentation, Augmentation Mammoplasty
Augmentation mammoplasty is done by plastic surgeons and before the operation the volume of augmentation is decided according to the patient’s wish, size of thoracic cage and the patient’s height. Ideally speaking, the surgery is applied under the operative theatre conditions and general anaesthesia. Within the first three days, depending on the patient’s status, dressing is lightened and the patient wears a special bra which we call sportsman bra. Plastic surgeons recommend the patients to wear this bra at least for two months. Eventhough we could observe temporary swelling and purplish color change on breasts, and insensitivity of nipples, after a certain while, these complaints disappear. Also, patients may feel a burning sensation around breasts for a couple of weeks. There may be pain and sensitivity on breasts for 3-4 when touched as well. The sutures are taken within 7-12 days. Patients may start working after 3-4 days with the doctor’s approval following the augmentation mammoplasty surgery.
