Breast augmenting plastic surgery is carried out by means of implants. The implants we use have been tested and attested by studies, and there has never been any proof of increased risks of cancer in connection with using the implants. The implants are of different shapes (round, drop shape) and different sizes, which allows for shaping the bust in accordance with the patient’s wishes and ideas, naturally after a reasonable agreement with the operating doctor. According to the patient’s predisposition, the resulting effect, and the doctor’s assessment, the implant is placed under the lacteal gland or under the pectoral muscle, so that eventual breastfeeding later on is not affected. This plastic surgery is carried out under general anaesthesia, requiring hospitalisation for 1-2 days. The implant can be inserted in the breast from three different access points according to the patient’s wishes in combination with the doctor’s assessment: from an incision around the areola, along the line between the light skin and the pigmented skin, from an incision in the under-breast crease, or from an incision in the armpit.
On the day following the surgery, the doctor removes the drains from the breasts. The drains are used to drain off the rest of the blood liquids. A roller bandage is applied to the breasts after the surgery. The cuts on the breast are sealed up by a patch to be left in place for 14 days. Sterile gauze is applied on the patches. On the third day after the surgery, the patient removes the roller bandage, removes the gauze, and dresses the patches on the cuts with disinfectant without removing them. The breasts are then again covered by sterile gauze, and protected by an elastic bra with no braces. The breasts are not washed for 14 days. Two weeks later, the doctor removes the gauze from the breast and the patches from the cuts.
The patients can remove the patches from the cuts themselves in the event they cannot come for the re-bandaging. The stitches are absorbent, and they do not need to be removed. It is then possible to shower the breasts and pressure massages are recommended for the scars 18 days after the surgery. A finger is used to exert pressure on the scar for 30 seconds, and then the finger is moved to another place on the scar. This massage is carried out several times a day, and it is also suitable to use scar creams. An elastic bra with no braces is worn for 4 weeks after the surgery, and it can then be replaced by any bra. The patient maintains a state of rest for a week, office work is possible afterwards. Full physical strain is only possible 4 weeks later.
