The decision to perform a breast augmentation surgery implies that patients will have endless questions that must be answered by the surgeon himself. These are usually both aesthetic, as well as possible risks and postoperative guidelines. In this post, we will answer the most common questions that are asked in our consultation.
Do we have to change implants every few years?
We cannot guarantee with total certainty that the implants will last forever. But we can definitely guarantee that we work with the best prosthetic brands on the market and, with some optimal care by the patient, you won´t ever have to change them. Dr. Martínez Gutiérrez recommends patients to do a breast ultrasound or magnetic resonance checkup every 1-2 years.
What is the postoperative period?
During this period the patient will feel some discomfort and tightness in the chest that will be treated with anti-inflammatory drugs and analgesics. As long as the recovery goes smoothly, in the next 7 days the patient will be able to live a normal life and go back to work. However, she will continue to take special care of the breast area and won´t be able to do any sports activities for at least a month.
What happens if I become pregnant after surgery?
During pregnancy there is an increase in the breast volume, however, if the patient is not overweight during this period, the possible shape changes of the breasts will be reduced.
What type of prosthesis are there? Can they break?
The type of prosthesis depends on the circumstances of each patient since not all breasts are the same. Dr. Martínez Gutiérrez uses high-quality brands that have undergone rigorous examinations prior to their commercialization and are already established in the market. The surgeon will recommend a type of implant that best fits the patient’s body based on her anatomy and the desired results.
However, our prostheses are hard and resistant, so there is no risk of breakage. Nevertheless, if in some isolated cases it breaks, the implants are filled with a high cohesion silicone gel that prevents the filling to spill.
Will I lose sensitivity?
With the exception of the first weeks when the chest is swollen, the sensitivity of the area will not be lost.
