| Augmentation Mammoplasty - the enlargement of the breasts
This intervention has the purpose of introducing a prosthesis with a silicon gel, or physiological serum, under the mammary gland, or the great pectoral muscle; and as a consequence the breasts become larger and more aesthetic.
Not all women need breast enlargement, but for many of them this enlargement offers a personal satisfaction.
Each women's decision is based on different reasons and must be taken on her own, based on her wishes and expectations.
-the silicon is a harmless and inert material, it does not cause breast cancer or any another auto-immune diseases. It might delay the presence of mammary tumors.
-the most common complication is the capsular contraction, but it can be treated successfully with antibiotics, if diagnosed in an early stage.
-the surgical incisions and the options of assembling the prosthesis: there are three types of incisions :
a) the incision under the breast, in the inframammary crease
b) the periareolar incision, around the mammary areola
c) the transaxilar incision, at the periphery of the pectoral muscle, under the arm.
The incisions are 4-6 cm long.
After the surgical intervention it is recommended to use ice bags and in the first 7 days please avoid ample and sudden movements of the arms.
Results and costs
