Breast augmentation in Poland is an increasingly popular procedure. This is an invasive procedure aimed at improving the appearance – shape and size of the breasts. It is the only method that allows you to enjoy the results obtained just a few days after the treatment.

For what purpose the breast augmentation procedure is performed?

This procedure is performed primarily:

-to improve the shape of the body of a woman who thinks her breast size is too small

-to correct the loss of breast volume after pregnancy,

-to even out the size of the breasts when there are significant differences in the size of both breasts in order to reconstruct the breast

How to prepare for the procedure?

 Not every woman can undergo breast augmentation surgery. Good health is a prerequisite. That is why it is so important to perform appropriate tests, including: extensive blood tests, breast ultrasound, and heart ECG. Two weeks before the planned procedure, all painkillers containing acetylsalicylic acid and other aspirin-based medications should be discontinued.

Breast augmentation – how is the procedure performed?

The operation is performed under general or regional anesthesia. The course of the breast augmentation surgery itself depends on the method of breast augmentation. During augmentation surgery with implants, cuts are made in the area of the areola, armpits or breast folds. Through the incision, implants are placed under the glands or under the pectoral muscles. In some cases, the implants are placed partly under the muscles and partly under the glands.

Convalescence after breast augmentation surgery

Recovery from breast augmentation surgery usually takes about 1-2 weeks. You can return to full physical activity after about 6-8 weeks. After the procedure, the patient should:

 -limit physical activity,

– avoid carrying heavy objects,

– wear soft, sports bras or special underwear intended for women after breast augmentation,

-sleep on your back

-avoid  saunas and hot baths.

If breast augmentation was performed by inserting implants, skin care is extremely important. This prevents visible scars from forming. The skin should be lubricated with special creams.

What are the contraindications to the procedure?

Breast augmentation involves surgery under general anesthesia or surgery with regional anesthesia. Accordingly, there are some contraindications. The most important of them are:

-untreated hypertension,

-uncontrolled diabetes,

-blood clotting disorders,

-HIV,

-active neoplastic disease,

-viral hepatitis.

 In addition, the operation is not performed on pregnant women or those who suffer from serious skin infections in the breast area.
