Beautiful bust is one of the main criteria that determine women's attractiveness. Unfortunately, not all the representatives of the fair sex can boast of ideal forms from nature. On the other hand, beautiful bust can change to the worst after pregnancy and breastfeeding. In this case, prosthetic of breast - augmentation mammaplasty - comes to the rescue. Despite the wide availability of information concerning this surgery, there are a great abundance of legends beginning with the stories about explosions of prostheses on board an airplane to an inability to breast-feeding after the surgery.The operation is completely safe when installing modern breast implants; it does not affect the risk of various breast diseases, including cancer, and also does not hinder and interfere into pregnancy and lactation.
The patient undergoes the medical examination, including breast ultrasound, mammography before the breast prosthesis. The operation is carried out under general anesthesia, and it takes about 1.5-2 hours. It is necessary to stay in the clinic in average 3-5 days after the surgery, the sutures are removed on the 10th day. Postoperatively, you must limit strenuous exercise and wear special underwear for 4-6 weeks. Later on, the installed implants do not cause any additional inconveniences to woman, do not affect the way of life, the period of their being in a body is not limited. The breast spissitude or hardness does not change; a person who is not a plastic surgeon cannot "feel" the implant.
Gels, introduced in the 90ties of the last century are now banned in all civilized countries. Although we still face the consequences of "experiments" that necessitate reoperation and long-term treatment because of the gel displacement and inflammation occuring. Modern breast prostheses have a solid shell that does not allow the filler to move and does not cause any reaction on the part of the patient's body. In our clinic, we use only the certified implants obtained directly from their manufacturers with a worldwide reputation.
Another common problem is big breasts, which change the shape after childbirth or with age. In this case it is necessary to conduct the complex reconstructive surgery - reduction mammoplasty.The result of this operation depends largely on the skill of an operating surgeon. Surgery is also performed under general anesthesia, and its duration can vary greatly depending on the initial features of the patient. Postoperatively also it is necessary to stay in the hospital for several days in order to limit loads and wear special clothes. Suture removal is conducted for 10-14 days after the operation.
When there is a significant excess of breast skin with a lack of soft tissue inside, then you need a combination of two operations. All these operations are carried out frequently and successfully in our clinic.
There is another very important area of surgery of breast such as breast restoration after oncological disease. Mastectomy and other similar operations preserve the patients` life but their impact is always a shock and stress for women, significantly reducing the quality of life. However, do not give up! Existing methods can eliminate this drawback. While preparing to install the prosthesis in such a situation lipofilling can be used (introducing the internal fat) as well as an expander (special prosthetic of breast gradually expanding the breast to the desired size). A beautiful aesthetic result can be achieved by eliminating all the inferiority complexes of the woman.
Correction of a form and size of breast is important not only for women. Gynecomastia in men is often a common problem. Such a diagnosis can be made when the pronouncement of breast in men is approaching to a female version. Naturally, this often leads to considerable limitations and psychological discomfort of the patient. However, the defect is eliminated quite easily by mastectomy. Such operations are performed under general anesthesia, and then a patient stays in the clinic for a few days to the removal of sutures in 10-12 days after surgery. The patient wears special compression underwear for three weeks and then forgets about the problem forever. In case of false gynecomastia, when the intensity and pronouncement of the male breast are caused by the peculiarities of adipose tissue placement, the problem is solved even easier with the help of liposuction.
Breast surgery has now become widespread, that is why there exists the probability to come across unscrupulous "doctors". Consequences of incorrectly performed operations can not only lead to depression and deterioration of appearance, but also the effects have the detrimental impact on health. While the result of an experienced surgeon will make you happy for a long time!
Mammoplasty is the change of breasts shapes and sizes. Mammoplasty can be carried out both with dentures involved - implants, and without them: in this case, the surgeon removes the excess of skin or skin and tissue, and moves the nipple and areola to a new position. In addition, in our clinic we perform the surgery to change the shape and size of the nipple-areola complex.
The increasing mammoplasty
Increasing of breast and changing the shape of them are carried out through endoprosthesis replacement in other words we use implants. The implants are of different shapes, different size, with cohesive silicone inside or saline. In our clinic endoprosthesis of such companies as «McGhan», «Mentor» have gained a good reputation; they are among the leaders in the production of safe and high quality prostheses worldwide.
The operation is performed under general anesthesia, the surgeon makes an incision around the nipple or under the breast (in submammary crease) depending on what the patient wish and anatomical features. Also it is possible to make an incision in the armpit, but this way of the implant introduction is supposed to be more traumatic, so we abandoned this method. The prosthesis is installed either under the pectoral muscle or between the mammary gland and muscle. In the postoperative period, it is necessary to wear a special bra and limit physical activity for a month.
Moreover, remember that the European Commission that guarantees the quality of medical devices in plastic surgery has signed the declaration as of June, 28 in 1996 based on the results of long research made by scientists around the world. The declaration stated: "Silicone breast implants are not the cause of malignant diseases and also they can not cause autoimmune diseases and have the adverse effect on pregnancy, breast-feeding and health of children who are breastfed - low risk of breast cancer associated with breast implants requires the further study".
Reduction mammoplasty and breast lifting are performed in cases where a patient is too worried about big breasts or breasts have lost their shape. Also, we often combine breast lifting and placing implants.
The reduction mammoplasty
Operation lasts 3-4 hours under general anesthesia, the surgeon removes excess skin and tissue, nipple and areola are moved to a new location, a new breast contour is formed which is fixed by special sutures. As a result, the breast becomes more elastic, high, and it takes the shape and the form of a young breast. In the postoperative period, it is necessary to wear a special bra.
Breast lifting – mastopexy
Operation lasts 2-3 hours under general anesthesia, the surgeon removes excess skin, the nipple and areola are moved to a new position.
After it, the seams are imposed around the areola, which are subsequently invisible. In the postoperative period, it is also necessary to wear a special bra.
