Mammoplasty

In addition to the role of nutrition for babies, an organ like the breast in women will also bring beauty. Perhaps this role is more important for women than its nutritional role. Now imagine that this beautifying organ not only creates beauty but also causes ugliness. This ugliness can be seen in being too small or too big. Therefore, women turn to breast surgery to solve this group of problems, which is generally called mammoplasty. But if this beautification is done in the direction of enlarging the breast, it is called augmentation mammoplasty, and if it is done in the direction of small breast, it is called reduction mammoplasty.

However, due to the fact that reduction mammoplasty, in addition to beautifying the breast, also eliminates some complications caused by the size of the breasts, in line with this common surgery among women, we decided to give detailed explanations in this regard, so that applicants can step on the path of surgery with more knowledge. Mammoplasty is done. Continue with us:

The effects of mammoplasty on the beauty of women's bodies

Larger than usual breasts cause both physical and mental effects to a woman and cause discomfort and worry. Physically, large breasts destroy the shape, shape of the shoulder and neck and cause back pain and neck pain. They also cause deviation in sitting position and in more severe cases cause breathing problems.

Large breasts overshadow a woman’s appearance and make her look unbalanced and make it difficult for her to exercise.

Increasing self-confidence through mammoplasty

Reduction mammoplasty or the famous breast reduction surgery is one of the surgeries whose psychological effect will be more than its physical effect.

Women who have very large breasts often go to the doctor’s office due to a decrease in self-confidence. Of course, other hidden reasons will also be significant factors for this referral. These people want this surgery due to the excessive weight of the breasts, which leads to pain in the chest or shoulder area, or due to burning sweat and creating wounds under the chest. Women with very large breasts sometimes confuse the pains caused by breast stones with heart pains, and by examining and examining them, they can be sure that these pains are only due to the size of their breasts.

Mammoplasty surgery is also known as a life-saving surgery among these women.

 

From garlic to onion mammoplasty surgery

First of all, we must say that this surgery can meet the needs of women in the form of liposuction, and the surgeon does not make incisions and remove excess breast tissue.

The stages of mammoplasty surgery and its types

When women go to the surgeon for mammoplasty, the surgeon will first inform the patient about the result of the surgery by checking the medical records. In the next step, when the parties have agreed on the size of the breast, the surgeon recommends the procedures before the mammoplasty and the points that the patient should follow and prepares him for the surgery.

On the promised day, the surgeon marks the incision areas by drawing lines on the patient’s chest. Of course, if the doctor’s choice for this surgery is not only liposuction. After these procedures, the surgeon prepares the patient for anesthesia. In this regard, the surgeon will use general anesthesia. After anesthesia, the surgeon will make an incision. The incisions in mammoplasty surgery can be different according to the doctor’s diagnosis.

The three common types of mammoplasty incisions are:
Areola incision of the nipple

Keyhole-shaped incision in which the surgeon starts the incision from the areola of the breast and continues to the fold of the breast.

Reverse T-shaped cut, in which the cut starts from under the breast crease and continues to the areola of the breast.

Note: Women should note that the type of incision depends on the surgeon’s diagnosis. The next noteworthy point is that scars remain on the chest, which most women prefer to suffer from the heaviness of the chest and other complications caused by the large size of the breast. Scars will be more visible in halo cuts, but all these complications will be hidden by wearing women’s clothes.

After making an incision, the surgeon removes the extra areas of the breast and performs a breast lift. If the surgeon has to change the position of the nipple in this surgery, he will make a precise placement and suture the cut areas.

Finally, after the end of anesthesia, the result of this surgery is tangible and visible immediately. Women should note that the cut and suture areas will be more visible after the surgery, and these areas will fade over time.

Is it necessary to say goodbye to breast-feeding with mammoplasty?

Perhaps this question is a concern of the applicants for this surgery, in response we must say that due to the incision area in the mammoplasty surgery, which will involve the areola of the breast, this surgery can affect the quality of breastfeeding, because the incisions will cause the relative destruction of the lactation channels. . But today’s mammoplasty surgery methods emphasize on maintaining the ability of women to breastfeed.

Care after mammoplasty

After the operation, you may have a drain (drainage tube) that is used to drain secretions.

These drains are removed when the discharge is minimal. Then the dressings will be readjusted and you will be asked to use a special bra.

The length of stay in the clinic or hospital to replace lost fluids, control infection and pain will usually be overnight.

This operation is relatively a big and important surgery, although some people can do their work after 10 to 14 days, but others prefer to rest for one to two weeks more.

Walking in the first 3 to 4 weeks is beneficial and improves blood circulation and reduces swelling and the possibility of blood clots.

For a few days after surgery, you will likely have a normal amount of pain that is controlled with appropriate painkillers.

Scar formation after surgery is not a complication and is considered a normal event. You should expect the scars to be red, prominent and even itchy at the beginning, but they will fade and smooth over time. This is the normal state and the healing process of the wound, which may take from a few months to a year to complete.

The sleeping position is on the back for up to 2 months, there should be no pressure on the chest. It is necessary to have varicose socks under the knee and a suitable bra for the day of surgery.
