If you’re considering breast augmentation but unsure how to proceed, you have come to the right place. In today’s post, we’ll provide a step-by-step guide on how the breast enlargement process works. Read on for complete details.
Breast augmentation in Manchester is a common cosmetic procedure performed for multiple reasons, such as:
The first step is to consult a surgeon, no matter the cause of the breast enlargement procedure. Do some legwork to search for a cosmetic surgeon with a wealth of experience in breast augmentation and access to state-of-the-art technologies.
Remember that this consultation is crucial. Therefore, before you visit the surgeon, make sure you prepare for it such as:
Think about why you want the procedure done
During the consultation, the surgeon may ask you questions related to your medical history, such as:
Make sure to answer all the questions asked honestly and comprehensively. The details you provide will help the surgeon determine if breast enlargement in Manchester is the right procedure for you.
The breast implant industry has evolved dramatically over the years. Hence, now there are various types of breast implants available. Some of the common types are:
The best way to make your pick is either leave it to the surgeon or discuss the pros and cons of each breast implant type with them. Furthermore, get clarity on their placement, such as behind the breast muscle or the breast and concerns about scarring. All this will help you with your selection.
If you’re an ideal candidate for the procedure and ready to undergo surgery, you will have to prepare your body for the big day. Preparation for breast enlargement surgery includes:
Take at least 3 days off from office work or at least 3 weeks off if you have labour-intensive duties at work.
There are several steps involved during the surgery for breast enlargement in Manchester. These include the following steps:
After the incision, they position the breast implants. It is either placed between the chest muscle and tissue of the breasts or behind the chest muscle.
Once the implants are placed, the incision is stitched. It is closed with layered sutures in breast tissue and skin adhesive. The breast enlargement procedure takes nearly an hour or 90 minutes. Afterwards, you will get pain relief to minimise discomfort or pain following the procedure. You may be allowed to go home after the procedure wearing a surgical bra.
The last stage of the breast augmentation process is recovery. It takes a few weeks to recover from the surgery. However, to speed up the recovery process, make sure to follow the tips given below:
The surgeon will remove the stitches after one or two weeks. However, you will be asked to revisit the surgeon in 6 weeks for a follow-up. During this time, your scars should begin to fade. However, the scar quality predominantly depends on multiple factors such as genetics, exposure of the body to infection, and nicotine.
Here it is important to understand that everyone has a different recovery time. It is because everyone’s body heals differently. However, it takes roughly 6 to 8 weeks to recover fully on average. During the recovery process, don’t be hard on yourself and try to jump into your regular activities quickly.
Avoid intense physical activities, including running, weightlifting and labour-intensive work, so you can fully recover and experience and embrace your new look confidently. Strenuous activities should be avoided because they can rupture your stitches.
Other complications may include bruising, swelling, bleeding, soreness, loss, or extra sensitivity in the nipples. In such a situation, reach out to your surgeon immediately so they can provide you with the best advice and treatment to avoid serious complications.
