Breast Augmentation Frequently Asked Questions
What will breast augmentation be like?
Dr. Crofts performs breast augmentation under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis at state certified surgical suite.
After working through an incision in the breast fold, the skin, tissue and pectoral muscle are lifted to create a pocket. The implant (whose size is determined by your physical features), is then centered beneath the nipple.
Patients are likely to feel sore and tired for a few days following surgery. Strenuous exercise should also be restricted for several weeks. In order for the implants to settle into position, we recommend that no bra be worn for about two months after the procedure.
Most discomfort should be controlled by medication. Patients need to avoid sexual contact for two to three weeks because of sensitivity to the breasts. The scars resulting from the surgery will start to fade after several months; however, they will never disappear completely.
For optimal results, Dr. Crofts advises regular massage of the breasts. This prevents capsule formation after the procedure and helps keep the pocket open.
What is recovery like after breast implant surgery? And what are some possible complications?
Hematoma (Three percent) - This is presented as a painful, swollen, bruised breast that is unusually hard or firm. If experienced, one must return to the operating room for control of the bleeding. An increased occurrence of infection and/or capsular contracture with postoperative asymmetry can stem from hematoma. Patients are encouraged to relax for a week following the procedure and temporarily avoid any medications that affect platelet adhesiveness.
Infection (Two percent) - Though infection is fairly uncommon, it requires removal of the implant until improvement is evident. If everything goes smoothly, the implant can be replaced four to six months later.
Sensory Dysfunction (16 percent) - Augmentation mammaplasty can sometimes change nipple areolar and breast sensation. When nerves get stretched interiorly or laterally, injury to the nerve supply takes place. Usually, sensation gradually comes back. On occasion, patients are left with some level of sensation change.
Deflation/Rupture of Implant (5 percent silicone/10 percent saline) - When implants deflate, saline gets reabsorbed into the body and the breast returns to its preoperative state. Surgical intervention is then required to maintain the created pocket. If an implant ruptures or leaks, the breast’s feel and shape are changed. We correct this by excising the capsule and inserting a new implant.
Capsular Contracture (5-10 percent)-Also described as firmness, this can occur at anytime postoperatively. The best way to counter this complication is through regular massage. If a capsule develops, a return to the operating room is needed.
Asymmetry - When postoperative massage and directed compression don’t correct this issue, a return to the operating room may be required to adjust the pocket and achieve symmetry.
Lactation - If a patient nursed a baby within a year of having the procedure, milk may be produced for a few days following surgery. This can be treated with medication prescribed by your doctor.
Breast cancer and breast augmentation
It’s imperative that future patients realize breast cancer and augmentation surgery are not directly correlated. Some studies even suggest that there is a decreased occurrence of breast cancer in augmented women less than 40 years of age.
Regardless, we highly advise women to complete monthly self-examinations on their breasts and to understand their family history of any breast cancer. Early detection leads to a greater survival rate.
