Mammoplasty or commonly known as breast augmentation in Kanpur increases the size and improves the shape of the breasts using implants.
The body image of the modern woman is negatively affected by an unsightly breast. Having a perfect breast seems to be, more and more, an indispensable requirement in modern life. The female breast is seen as one of the most sensual parts of a woman’s body.
It has always played an important psychosexual role, as well as a biological one. Symbol of sexuality and erogenous zone, the breast and its appearance worry many women and justify all kinds of care – even surgical ones.
Mammoplasty makes it possible to correct these issues
With implant placement, Augmentation Mammoplasty aims to improve the shape, size, and contour of the breast. This procedure renews self-confidence and allows for a renewed sense of femininity.
Mammoplasty surgery in Kanpur is one of the most sought-after interventions worldwide. In the last decade there have been major changes in plastic surgery that allow the recovery from Augmentation Mammoplasty to be significantly better.
It is performed on an outpatient basis and does not imply the need to use compression bands, drains or special techniques for pain control. After a week, the patient can resume her normal activities.
Breast Augmentation in Kanpur is the surgical procedure that aims to increase and improve the shape of the female breast. Over the years, there are several factors that affect the aesthetics of the breast – pregnancy, weight variations, decreased skin elasticity, among others.
Mammoplasty allows not only to improve the shape and volume, lift, and reaffirm the breast, but also allows:
- improve silhouette proportion
- increase breast projection
- fix volume loss
- balance the asymmetry
- reconstruct the breast after breast surgery
- replace an existing implant
Sometimes, to remove excess skin and elevate the breast, it is necessary to combine Augmentation Mammoplasty with a Mastopexy.
The Dr. Amit Verma, the best plastic surgeon in Kanpur will evaluate your clinical condition – based on the state of your breast and skin tone – and will determine the best way to obtain the desired result with Breast Augmentation in Kanpur.
Each woman is unique and, as such, there are also implants in different sizes and shapes: the round ones grant a result with greater projection; anatomical ones give the breast a more natural drop shape.
Anatomical implants allow for more natural and aesthetically pleasing results with Augmentation Mammoplasty.
A breast implant is a silicone shell that may contain silicone gel or saline. Each option has its advantages and disadvantages in Augmentation Mammoplasty.
Breast Augmentation in Kanpur with saline implants
- harmless to the organism – in the (remote) case of rupture
- also allows for easier reading of the mammogram
- sudden emptying
- clearly distinguishable – visually and tactilely – from the natural breast
- the sound and cooling of the breasts
Breast Augmentation in Kanpur with silicone implants
- various degrees of consistency
- provide greater comfort
- composed of a highly cohesive gel that maintains a stable shape
- reduced risk of micro ruptures
- have better aesthetic guarantees
- greater longevity
- make it difficult to read the mammogram – without, however, preventing
In order to ensure the success of your mammoplasty surgery in Kanpur, Dr. Amit Verma will recommend the type of implant, incision site and pocket location for your specific case. And always in close connection with you.
The surgery can be performed under local or general anesthesia. General anesthesia requires the patient to be hospitalized for a few hours. Alternatively, Augmentation Mammoplasty can be performed under local anesthesia combined with a sedative.
The method of placement and positioning of implants varies depending on the anatomy and Dr. Amit Verma. The Mammoplasty incision can be made around the areola, in the inframammary fold, or in the armpit.
Through the incision, the plastic surgeon in Kanpur creates a pouch directly behind the breast tissue or under the pectoral muscle. The implants are then centered under the nipples.
The incision must allow a rigorous, minimally traumatic, bleeding-free Mammoplasty and ensure the desired result.
Mammoplasty recovery is thus easier and less painful. Almost all patients are discharged within hours of surgery.
Mammoplasty with an inframammary approach has several advantages and is currently the most performed by Dr. Amit Verma.
Placing the implants partially behind the muscle can reduce the potential for capsular contracture and give a more natural result to Mammoplasty.
In this position, the implant interferes less with the mammogram than if it is placed directly behind the breast tissue.
Mammoplasty surgery in Kanpur takes about 1 hour. Stitches are used to close the incision and a light dressing is placed.
After the Augmentation Mammoplasty, there is an adaptation period, and it is expected to feel some discomfort.
The body needs to recover from Mammoplasty. You will be discharged from the hospital wearing an underwire bra, which is recommended to be worn for about 4 weeks. Discomfort can be controlled by prescribed medication.
You may experience a burning sensation in the nipples that usually disappears within 2 weeks, along with the bruising.
Mammoplasty stitches are removed between 1 week to 10 days, but the swelling can take 3 to 5 weeks to disappear.
Scars are pink and firm for about 6 to 8 weeks. After a few months the scars begin to fade, although they never completely disappear.
It is very important to follow a balanced and healthy diet to avoid large variations in weight in short periods of time after Breast Augmentation in Kanpur.
Augmentation Mammoplasty is a relatively safe procedure. However, like any surgery, it carries some risks.
In addition to potential complications common to all surgeries (bruises, infections, etc.) the placement of prostheses is subject to specific complications that must be discussed with the plastic surgeon in Kanpur.
The change in nipple sensitivity after Augmentation Mammoplasty is a generally transient sensation that improves over time.
This is the most common problem in Augmentation Mammoplasty. Occurs if the scar or capsule around the implant contracts.
This compression can result in a feeling of hardness in the breast and can be treated in a number of ways. Sometimes it requires the removal of scar tissue and the removal or replacement of the implant in new Mammoplasty.
There is always the potential risk of breakage. The most frequent causes are exaggerated compression and trauma.
If a saline implant ruptures, the implant will deflate within hours. In case of confirmed rupture, the prosthesis must be removed in a new Mammoplasty.
Displacement of the prosthesis
Despite being correctly placed during Mammoplasty surgery in Kanpur, a displacement of the prosthesis may occur in the postoperative period, causing asymmetries. The most common reasons are incorrect manual mobilization or local trauma to the breast in the postoperative period.
Serious complications with Augmentation Mammoplasty are rare. And this is due to the fact that each patient is properly prepared, and Mammoplasty adapts to the clinical picture and morphology of each patient.
The results of Augmentation Mammoplasty are very gratifying as they contribute to a reinforcement of self-esteem and an improvement in physical appearance.
It is, however, important to have regular checkups with your plastic surgeon and routine mammograms – especially after age 45.
And, in this way, ensure that any complication with Mammoplasty, if it occurs, is detected, and treated early.
What are Mammoplasty scars like?
There are three types of incision in Augmentation Mammoplasty. Cuts can be made in the areola, under the armpit or in the crease of the breast:
Under the breast
The Mammoplasty incision – about four centimeters – is made under the breast. So, the scar is under the breast. This incision has several advantages over the others.
The prosthesis is placed with an incision on the underside of the areola. The Mammoplasty scar can be imperceptible depending on the person. It is not indicated for patients with very small areola.
This type of incision is indicated when there is not a large distance between the areola and the armpit. That is, for Mammoplasty in patients whose chest is very small. The breast does not have any scar from the Augmentation Mammoplasty.
The choice of method must be made in partnership with the plastic surgeon, as it depends on the physical examination, the size of the prosthesis and the place where it will be placed – over or under the muscle.
What types of implants are there?
The implant used in Augmentation Mammoplasty must be suitable for the patient’s anatomy, the desired result and the technique adopted.
There are prostheses of various shapes and sizes for Augmentation Mammoplasty:
- high profile: leaves the breast with more volume and projection
- low profile: low height and larger base diameter
- anatomical: gives a more natural breast. It is mainly indicated for very small breasts or breasts with slight sagging
Implants for Augmentation Mammoplasty can have a smooth or textured surface.
Can the prosthesis move?
If placed in the correct space, at the proper level and handled post-operatively as indicated, mobilization of the prosthesis after Mammoplasty surgery in Kanpur is highly unlikely.
However, if the surgeon makes an excessively large and disproportionate space in relation to the size of the prosthesis, its rotation can result in breast deformation.
In addition, the implant can also be moved upwards or downwards. In this case, correct manual mobilization is of particular importance and avoiding traumatizing the breast after the Mammoplasty operation – such as when putting on a bra.
However, this only happens in the first week after Augmentation Mammoplasty. After this period, the tissue heals, and the prosthesis cannot be moved – the woman can resume her normal lifestyle.
Can the prosthesis break?
Although rare, it can happen. Ruptures can be spontaneous or caused by trauma.
In the first case, if the implants applied – their coating and content – are of good quality, it is unlikely. Breast augmentation prostheses are increasingly filled with cohesive silicone. This limits the formation of wrinkles and reduces the risk of breakage.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of anatomical prostheses?
The placement of anatomical prostheses in Mammoplasty allows a better simulation of the natural breast. And this is all the more important the smaller the natural breast.
Mammoplasty with anatomical implants avoids the “ball” effect at the top and favors a more natural curvature.
In a Mammoplasty in which the patient has a breast with sufficient mammary gland, this aspect is not so important and round prostheses allow for a natural result.
Anatomical prostheses also allow a better elevation of the nipple and therefore, within certain limits, allow the breast to be lifted without very marked scars.
Does Mammoplasty Recovery Take Time?
After 2 to 3 days after performing the Augmentation Mammoplasty, the patient should be able to resume light impact daily activities. After 15 days, she will be able to perform physical activity but with special care not to make efforts with her arms.
About a month after the Augmentation Mammoplasty, you can resume your normal routine.
The recovery period of Mammoplasty varies, however, from woman to woman.
In case of pregnancy, is the result of Mammoplasty harmed? Does it interfere with breastfeeding?
There is no evidence that breast implants can affect your fertility or pregnancy. The implants are always placed under the mammary gland and therefore do not interfere with breastfeeding.
There is usually no problem with the pregnancy interfering with the outcome. However, pregnancy can increase the breast in an unpredictable way and affect, in the long term, the results of Augmentation Mammoplasty.
Does silicone cause breast cancer?
In the studies carried out, there was no greater risk of contracting cancer or autoimmune diseases in women who had an Augmentation Mammoplasty.
There is no evidence that mammoplasty implants can cause cancer or that they significantly delay the ability to detect breast cancer at an early stage.
However, they make it difficult to visualize the breast tissue through mammography. To circumvent this problem, self-examination is recommended, and regular medical follow-up complemented with special incidences in mammography or ultrasound.
Silicone has numerous applications – there is no evidence that the placement of silicone implants is compatible with the development of connective tissue diseases.
Silicone is so widely used for medical purposes because it is considered inert and biocompatible with the body.
How long do mammoplasty results last?
The results of Augmentation Mammoplasty are long lasting.
However, there are factors that can influence the size and shape of the breasts – aging, weight gain (or loss), among others. The alterations can, however, be corrected later in a new Mammoplasty or, if to elevate the breasts, with a Mastopexy to restore their younger contour.
Do not hesitate to clarify any doubts and clarify your expectations with your surgeon before the breast augmentation in Kanpur.
