Preoperative tests before breast augmentation surgery

July 20th, 2017

Preoperative tests before breast augmentation surgeryA breast augmentation surgery is a major surgery for healthy people. In order to ensure that a patient is healthy enough, surgeons may ask for preoperative tests. These tests help the surgeons make a proper assessment about their patient’s real health condition.

Different surgeons require different tests for their patients. Although it would be less hassle for patients not to undergo any tests, it is best that patients select surgeons who require such preoperative tests. This is to ensure that the patient qualifies for the surgery and that he or she can make a complete recovery.

The type of tests that are done on patients will also depend on the type of surgery they are undergoing. The age and the current health condition of the patient also determine what kinds of tests a patient has to go through before they can be cleared for surgery. Generally, younger people are healthier than older people – that is why older patients may require more tests.

Some surgeons don’t really require their patients to undergo tests. They can just do a physical assessment and take their blood pressure to make sure they are healthy. This is especially true for young adults who want to undergo a cosmetic surgery. In some cases, blood tests may also be required.

One of the most common tests that patients are required to undergo before their surgery is a complete blood count. This is a test which counts the different cells that make up the blood. In this test, the red blood cell, white blood cell and platelet count is determined. It is possible to see if a patient has a blood clotting disorder or any other blood disorder. This is very important because blood loss during surgery can occur and if the bleeding is uncontrolled, it can lead to fatal consequences.

Along with the complete blood count, surgeons can also ask for a blood chemistry test. This kind of test will determine levels of certain chemicals in the blood such as glucose, potassium, sodium, and many others. Abnormal levels are present when a patient has a disease or medical condition.

An ECG or electrocardiogram is another test that surgeons can require, especially if the patient is forty years old or older. This test determines if there are any irregularities when it comes to the beating of the heart. Surgeons need to know if the patient’s heart is strong enough to withstand the stress of the surgery.

Aside from the aforementioned tests, there are also other tests that can help determine the health of the patient. Pregnancy tests, a urinalysis, a mammogram or a chest x-ray can all help clear a patient for surgery. All these tests are very useful in making sure that a patient is healthy enough for the procedure. Although it may seem a lot, it is better to discover if there are problems before the surgery.

Benefits of breast augmentation

May 24th, 2017

Benefits of breast augmentationBreast augmentation is a surgical procedure performed to improve the size and shape of one’s breasts. It is usually considered as a cosmetic surgery as it makes use of implants of different sizes in order to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing breast shape and size in relation to the body frame of the patient.

Breast augmentation brings a positive change in appearance, giving a boost of self-confidence. Patients do not need to have overly large implants to look great; in fact, many women become happy with natural looking breasts after the procedure and are even inspired to live a healthier lifestyle to achieve a sexier body.

Studies show that patient satisfaction after breast augmentation go hand-in-hand with their expectations. It is important for patients to have a thorough consultation with their surgeons in order to establish realistic expectations after the procedure.

Breast augmentation does not only improve small breast size (micromastia), but it also corrects asymmetrical breasts. It is also popularly included in the “mommy makeover,” especially for patients who have just given birth. Due to pregnancy and lactation, the breast can increase in size but return to normal after nursing. This may make some women feel like their breasts have deflated due to lost volume and sagging skin. Breast augmentation returns the breast to its original, plump state.

Overall, the confidence boost that breast augmentation brings makes women feel more capable and empowered. The happiness and satisfaction they get from their enhanced appearance improves their outlook in life, allowing them to have a better relationship with others.

Facts about breast implants

May 17th, 2017

Facts about breast implantsDespite the high success rate and impressive results that breast surgery brings, you should still research all the facts before undergoing this procedure. Here are some facts about breast implants that you should know.

First of all, the results of the breast implants procedure will not be the same for all women. Even if you know someone who had great results because of the surgery, you cannot expect that the results will be exactly the same for you. Each body is different, and this applies to breasts as well. There are different factors that will affect the appearance of your new breasts. It is not only based on the size of the implants, but the initial appearance of the breasts is integral to the result.

There are different kinds of breast implants available in the market today. There are saline-filled ones and silicone gel filled implants. These two types of implants are approved by the FDA and are regulated that is why it is considered as a safe implant to use on the breasts. They are also available in different sizes and different shapes.

Breast implants can still cause complications, despite their FDA approval. It is possible that the implants can get infected and if it is not treated immediately, the infection can become severe enough as to cause death. There are also other complications that can develop due to its presence such as capsular contracture, breast pain, breast numbness, necrosis and other cosmetic problems. Aside from the benefits of the implants, the surgery itself can be the cause of the complications. It is a major surgery and should only be done on healthy individuals to ensure a proper recovery.

There are different breast augmentation surgeries where implants are used, in addition to different types of incisions that can be used in order to place the implants and shape the breast properly. The type of incision that is done for you may be different from others because that is what is needed for your breasts. Similarly, there are also different implants that can be used depending on the results that you want to achieve and the type of breasts that you possess.

A complication of silicone gel implants is that they may break or leak. This may be due to a variety of reasons, but when leakage does occur, the leaked silicone can migrate to other areas in the body. Having a leaking breast implant is a serious complication and should be dealt with immediately to prevent it from going to other areas of the body where it can cause damage to the patient’s health.

Due to the possibility of leakage, it must be noted that the implants don’t last for a lifetime. Although the implants available today are designed for their durability, there is still a chance of deterioration. The breast implants can last for many years, but there is no guarantee that they will last for a lifetime. Replacing your implants may be necessary in the future.

What bra should I wear after breast augmentation?

May 10th, 2017

What bra should I wear after breast augmentationAmong the common questions women ask their surgeon is what type of bra they should wear after their breast augmentation surgery. The answer to this is, it depends. The type of bra that you have to wear highly depends on your surgeon. Each surgeon suggests different types of bras to their patients, and they have their own reasons why. Nevertheless, the best bra to wear is the one prescribed to you by your surgeon because they know what your breasts need and which bra can provide it.

There are many surgeons who recommend their patients to wear sports bras. This is because the closure of sports bras is found in front, which makes it easier for you to put it on or take it off. The idea is to minimize movement in your breast area during your recovery period. As a result, your surgeon will advise you to wear this type of bra for several weeks until you can wear your regular bra.

On the other hand, some surgeons opt for a medical compression bra because it is made to provide support for their patient after the operation. These are specially made bras for the breast augmentation surgery. They actually help improve the blood circulation, minimize swelling and keep the implants in their right position. Compared to the sports bras available in the market today, these offer more support for your breasts.

Regardless of which preference though, most surgeons will agree that their patients should never wear a bra with an underwire right after their surgery in order to prevent irritation of the skin. The wired bras can irritate the incision and cause even more problems. With that said, there are some cases where surgeons allow it, but this is only because their incisions are found elsewhere and not on the crease at the bottom of the breasts.

Then there are those who suggest patients not to wear a bra at all because they feel that the bandages are enough support to the breasts. This is why they feel that the patients do not need bras to give extra support in that area. Even those who have implants can be allowed to just wear bandages instead of bras if the surgeon feels that there is no risk. Hence, the kind of bra to use is always best answered by the surgeon who operated on you because there are many options to choose from and only they understand what is suitable.

In general, patients should learn to listen to their surgeons, especially when it comes to post-operative care, such as choosing a bra. Aside from your bra, you will also come home with bandages and dressings. It is important that you keep this intact until your surgeon tells you to remove them. Your breasts, as well as the bandages and dressing, should always be kept dry and clean. Usually, the bra is put over the bandages, which is why you should make sure to get bigger bras just for this occasion.

Taking this all into consideration, you should have an accurate measurement done on your new breasts, so that you can find the most appropriate size for you. It is important that you measure your new bra size and don’t simply estimate or guess because it does affect the physical condition of your breasts.

Initial Consultation Before Breast Augmentation

May 3rd, 2017

Initial Consultation Before Breast AugmentationEvery breast augmentation surgery starts with an initial consultation with the surgeon. This is an important step because this is the time when you can meet and get to know your surgeon. Since you will be meeting the surgeon face to face, this will help you identify your surgeon’s abilities and experience, whether or not they are qualified to perform the surgeon successfully. Moreover, this gives you the opportunity to feel more comfortable with the surgeon, and ultimately, trust him/her. After all, they will be the one responsible for your surgery, and the success of the procedure is in their hands.

The initial consultation allows you to speak with the surgeon in person, which makes it easier to ask all the questions you have about the surgery. During this time, you can also tell the surgeon in detail about your desires and expectations. It is important that you make sure you communicate well with your surgeon in order for them to understand how you want your breasts to look like. You need to tell them exactly what you want in order to avoid disappointments in the end. Remember, this is your body and you always have a choice.

Before the consultation, it would be best to do a little bit of research on your own about the procedure that you want to have. This will give you an idea of what to expect and what type of results you can expect. Although the surgeons will explain the procedure to you, doing your own research will help you understand the process better.

If you happen to have any questions, the consultation period is the perfect time to ask them. You can clarify all the details that are unclear to you so that you can make your final decision. Any fears or concerns you might have should be voiced out so that your surgeon can reassure you and answer them to the best of his or her knowledge. The more you know about what you are committing yourself to, the easier it would be to come to a conclusion.

By going for an initial consultation, you can build a working relationship with your surgeon. This helps ensure that both of you have the same goals for the procedure. The initial consultation also serves to clarify the techniques and procedures the surgeon uses. This is good to know when you are still undecided about which surgeon will perform your surgery.

Aside from that, you will also be able to get a quotation from the surgeon during your consultation. Once you know the cost, you can think of a payment plan to ensure that the surgery is within your budget. There are some who take out interest-free loans to pay for their surgery. You can also just opt to save up money before going through with the surgery, so that you can pay it in full.

Once your surgeon understands exactly what you want from the procedure, medical examinations will be done. This is to check if you are physically and mentally fit for the surgery, as well as if you are a good candidate. Measurements will also be taken before the surgery. The surgeon may even conduct a physical exam as early as the initial consultation just to see the condition of your breasts. This allows them to assess your breasts and determine if the procedure will suit you well.
