The augmentation mammoplasty is one of the most requested interventions today, is a surgical procedure aimed at increasing the size of women’s breast by placing breast implants silicone gel or saline, the most used are the silicone ones, which also enhances the breast in a more natural way.
Once the augmentation mammoplasty is complete, it can be returned to the home after about 4-6 hours after the intervention.
The augmentation mammoplasty is a fairly simple intervention, through a small incision the breast implants are placed. Said incision for the introduction of the prosthesis, it can be introduced in several ways, depending on each case. It is usually done between the aureole and the skin through the nipple, in the submammary groove, that is, under the chest, or in the area of the armpit.
As for the placement of the prosthesis, they are usually placed under the mammary gland, above the pectoral muscle or under the pectoral muscle.
The augmentation mammoplasty is performed with local anesthesia and sedation and hospital discharge usually occurs after a few hours of the intervention.
Drains are not placed for greater comfort, instead a compressive bandage for 24-48 hours. Once the bandage is removed, we place a special bra and band around it to shape the breast.
