Breast Implants

Compare 28 clinics

Breast implant surgery, also known as a “boob job” is a type of breast augmentation in which a prosthesis is used to change the shape, size and texture of a woman’s breast.

Breast Implants Candidates

Breast implants can be used for a wide range of reasons, including:

● Breast reconstruction after a mastectomy procedure
● Correction of deformities or congenital defects of the chest
● Bust enhancement for aesthetic reasons

Am I Suitable for Breast Implants?

Breast implants are not recommended for patients that suffer from any type of infection in the body, women who are breast feeding or pregnant and women battling cancer.

Preparing for Breast Implants

The patient should not take any medications containing aspirin, vitamin E, anti inflammatory medication or ibuprofen for at least 10 days before the surgery. Smoking is prohibited for at least 2 weeks before and after the surgery as it can interfere with the anaesthesia. Alcohol is prohibited at least 1 week before and after the surgery.

How is Breast Implants Performed?

Firstly, the surgeon will discuss the procedure with the patient and decide on the type of implant, incision site and the final location of the implant. A mammography is necessary before the procedure can begin. Any irregularities in the breast tissue can interfere with the surgery.
The patient is then administered general anaesthesia and the surgeon can begin creating the necessary incisions and the pockets where the implants will be placed.

The incision can be done around the areola, in the armpit, along the lower portion of the breast or through the navel.

There are three types of breast implant surgery, according to the placement of the prosthesis:
● Subglandular breast implants
● Submuscular breast implants
● Subpectoral breast implants

Under muscle breast implants seems to be one of the most popular breast implant options as it has a positive effect on the look and feel of the breast, as well as on the post-op recovery time.

Under the muscle best suited for:
● Patients with limited breast tissue to cover the prosthesis
● Patients with little or no drooping of the bust
● Thin women

Over the muscle best suited for:
● Patients with enough breast tissue to cover the implant entirely
● Patients with drooping breasts that wish a larger bust
● Patients looking for a faster recovery period.

Once the implants are placed in their final position, the incisions are sutured up and the area is bandaged in order to prevent infection and bleeding.

Breast Implants Recovery

The patient can usually return to work and normal activities in around 5-7 days. Physical exercise is allowed around 2-3 weeks after surgery. During the recovery period the patient will be provided with a medical bra and a set of instructions from the doctor. These instructions need to be followed very carefully in order to ensure the success of the procedure.

Scars after Breast Implants

Scars depend heavily on the area where the incision will be made. Scars made in the inframammary fold will fade away in a couple of months but they will never disappear completely.

Breast Implants FAQ

?
Are Breast Implants Permanent?

Although breast implants do have a long lifespan, they are not permanent. Women usually require a second medical intervention 10-15 years after the first one.

?
Is breastfeeding possible after breast implant procedure?

In most cases breastfeeding is possible but it depends on the type of incision used during the procedure. Incisions made in the fold of the breast do not affect breastfeeding but incisions around the areola may do so.

?
How can I know if an implant ruptured?

After the surgery, the patient will need to have regular MRIs or mammographies in order to check the strength of the implants. If an implant ruptures, the patient will need to have a breast implant removal procedure.
