Breast implants are prosthetic objects that are surgically placed inside your breasts. Breast implants consist of silicone casings that are either filled with silicone gel or saline (sterile salt water).
Breast implants are inserted by physicians who are plastic surgeons. After losing a breast to cancer, you could decide to get breast implants. You can be in good health yet want to alter the size or form of your breasts. When a breast cancer patient has breast reconstruction, breast implants are used. Breast augmentation is the procedure when a healthy individual who wants to change the size or form of their breasts gets breast implants. Another name for breast augmentation is a “boob job.”
How common are breast implants?
Approximately 3.5 million people in the US have breast implants. In about 60% of breast implants, silicone gel is present. Approximately 35 million people have breast implants worldwide.
What is the difference between breast augmentation and breast implants?
Breast augmentation and breast implants are frequently used interchangeably. Any cosmetic surgical operation that increases the size of your breasts is referred to as breast augmentation. Breast implants are prosthetic objects that are surgically placed inside your breasts. Therefore, breast augmentation refers to a range of operations that increase the size of your breasts. Breast augmentation treatments can be supported by silicone shells filled with silicone gel or saline solution.
What happens during a breast implant procedure?
You are sedated (put under) before a breast implant procedure so that you won’t be awake and won’t experience any pain. In order to minimize the visibility of breast implant scars, an incision (cut) is made while you are asleep in one of four discrete locations on your body. The various incisions consist of:
Your areola’s outside edge will have a cut (the coloured area that surrounds your nipple).
a cut in the crease that runs from your chest to the bottom of your breasts.
- Transaxillary: An incision in your armpit.
- Transumbilical: An incision in your belly button.
Both benefits and drawbacks are associated with each kind of incision. Find out from your doctor what kind of incision is best for you.
The breast implants are then put through the incision and positioned either underneath or between the breast tissue and the chest muscles.
What happens after a breast implant procedure?
Your healthcare professional will wrap your breasts in a specialized supportive bra or compression band after the breast implant operation is finished. To keep you asleep, your anesthesiologist will stop administering anesthesia to your body. You will be taken to a recovery room where medical professionals will wait for you to awaken and keep an eye on your general health.
You might feel groggy, your breasts might hurt, and your chest might feel tight when you wake up. For up to several hours, your medical professionals will keep an eye on your general health. When they decide you don’t need to be monitored any longer, they will release you (let you go home). For the first 24 hours after your breast implant procedure, you must be driven home and looked after by a family member or friend.
After your breast implant treatment, your body should typically take six to eight weeks to completely recuperate.
