Bigger and shapelier breasts
Breast prosthesis is one of the methods that is done to make breasts bigger and more beautiful. Many women are in favor of this method.
Different types of breast prostheses
Salt water prostheses
Round saline prostheses filled with sterile saline solution are a solution that is naturally present in the body. The prosthesis flattens when torn and the fluid is absorbed by the body through a natural process. Patients younger than 18 years cannot use this type of breast prosthesis.
Round silicone prostheses are filled with a sticky gel with a natural appearance and do not cause discomfort to the patient. The silicone prosthesis does not break if it is torn. The patient must be at least 22 years old to be able to use these types of prostheses for breast augmentation.
Gel-shaped prostheses are made of silicone with very high adhesion strength and a shape that fits the anatomy of the patient's body. With the help of these prostheses, rest time and recovery are reduced and fewer complications are possible. However, patients younger than 22 years cannot use silicone breast prosthesis surgery.
Suitable people for breast prosthesis
The ideal applicants are healthy, non-smoking women with well-elastic skin and realistic expectations of the outcome. Patients should follow the instructions for preoperative preparation and postoperative care to ensure that the healing process is carried out in the best way and the optimal result is achieved.
The patient must inform the surgeon of the medications he or she is taking before the breast prosthesis operation, as some of those medications may interfere with the surgical procedure, so your doctor may ask you to stop taking certain medications or change your prescription. Obviously, supplementation is very important. Aspirin, aspirin products, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements should be stopped 10 days before breast prosthesis surgery.
Depending on the patient's physical condition, the doctor may consider certain tests necessary and may ask the patient to perform the preoperative imaging test if he or she has not recently had a mammogram.
Breast prosthesis operation
In addition to breast augmentation with gel, you can use the outpatient prosthesis method, which is performed under general anesthesia for one to two hours. After the different methods of breast augmentation were examined in the consultation session and the surgeon selected the size and type of prosthesis according to the patient's condition and preference; Finally, the method of making the incision and placement of the prosthesis is determined. The surgeon can make incisions in three different places to insert the prosthesis: the armpit, the halo around the breast (the tissue around the nipple), or the crease under the breast. Dr. Mofrad creates all these incisions in such a way that they are as blurred and indistinct as possible.
The surgeon inserts the prosthesis into the body after making an incision in the muscle above or below the chest wall. The body holds the prosthesis in place and prevents it from moving under the skin. The surgeon closes the incision and sews it after placing the prosthesis in place.
