What is the difference between round and tear-shaped breast implants?

By Breasts

The implants used today are circular or teardrop-shaped. Teardrop implants provide a more natural, mature look; However, if the front pocket is tense and twisted, the shape of the breast may be distorted. Implants around the mucosa can achieve the same result without the distortion of the breast. During the consultation, the surgeon examines the shape and aesthetic goals of the different breast implants available to determine which implant style is best for you.

What is the difference between saline and silicone breast implants?

The saline implant is a silicone rubber shell filled with sterile salt water. The silicone implant is a silicone gel filled with the same shell. Many believe that silicone implants are softer and more resemble a natural breast, while silicone implants are lighter. Salt breast implants are sometimes somewhat heavier and extend to breast tissue and may appear as mature breast or mature breasts. Defective physiological saline is slowly condensed in a few days or weeks and is easily noticeable; however, the cracked silicone implant cannot be detected by the patient, doctor or mammogram.

Breastfeeding after breast enlargement does not pose a greater challenge than otherwise. There is no risk that the breast implant, saline or silicone enters the breast milk and does not affect your child in any way.

How do I know if there are problems with breast implants?

Breast implant surgery, like any surgery, carries a risk. Your plastic surgeon will provide you with comprehensive patient education materials. Immediate postoperative concerns about healing and bleeding.

Bleeding occurs at any surgical incision and is rarely a problem; Hematoma (blood collection) is sometimes a significantly larger breast. If this happens, the surgeon will immediately eliminate the situation by removing the blood. Capsular contraction (binding of natural scar tissue around the implant causing bra force) is unpredictable, but may require correction surgery if necessary. Capsules or capsules relieve the problem. As mentioned above, deflation may occur and is generally harmless, but requires another surgical procedure to replace the implant. Infection of the breast implant is rare using the closed charge system to fill the implant with saline during surgery. If an infection occurs and healing problems occur, antibiotics should be treated to avoid further surgery. Finally, it may be necessary to remove the implant until the infection ceases. The breast implant can then be re-inserted.

When can I return to normal activity after breast implant surgery?

One or two days after surgery, the controlled analgesia should be checked. You can shower almost immediately and return to the office within one week to track and remove the stitch (unless you use soluble seams). You can continue your sexual relations, though your breast should be treated with care.

Patients usually return within a week. High lifting, pushing or lifting work at this time may be uncomfortable and the job must be adjusted accordingly. Implants in the submucosal position (which are most) cause pain for a long time. Returning to training is a personal decision. After the first two weeks, some exercises can damage the incision or breast implant; however, stress should be avoided, which emphasizes pectoral muscle compression or push-ups. Most patients will wait a month before they return to strong training.
