- synmastia (when the breasts are located too close to each other)
- capsular contracture
Is the procedure of Breast Enlargement painful?
The procedure involves stretching the tissues and placing the implants, so yes, it is quite painful. The pain is the most severe within the first 48 hours after the surgery and gets weaker every day. Remember to take the prescribed medicines and to closely follow doctor’s orders to recover as soon as possible.
Is the procedure effects long-lasting?
The results will last for the life of the implants. You should remember that bigger breasts will sag faster than the small ones, so you may need plastic surgery in later years if you choose big implants.
To ease pain and swelling, apply ice packs to the body. The swelling should start to cease after 48 hours, however, the process may last even 3 months. A great help will be an athletic bra. If you need any additional medicines to support the recovery, the doctor will prescribe those (including antibiotics). After the procedure, you should, of course, sleep on your back and avoid tiring activities and start walking as soon as you can to prevent blood clotting. Wait 3-6 months to see the final results of the procedure.
