Preparation For The Breast Augmentation Operation; In order to prepare for breast augmentation surgery, mammography and ultrasound should be performed in patients over the age of 40 to detect and treat any pathological changes in the breast at an early stage. Also, three weeks before the operation should be dispensed with drugs that affect blood clotting and affect the process of breast augmentation. These include painkillers such as Asperin. Also on alcohol, nicotine and sleeping pills should be deliberately avoided to prepare the body ideally for the operation.
Position of the implant for breast augmentation
If breast augmentation is performed using an implant, it must be decided based on the physical condition of the patient, whether the implant is placed in front of or behind the pectoral muscle. In lean patients with a rather thin soft tissue sheath, implantation behind the pectoral muscle is a good option because it better covers the top of the implant. If, on the other hand, a slightly hanging breast is to be filled and lifted, the position of the implant in front of the pectoral muscle is appropriate. In breast augmentation with autologous fat, the material is injected under the skin. However, it should be noted that the permanently remaining portion is not exactly predictable and is only about 50 percent. Therefore, some patients repeat the procedure after a few years. Regarding the position and quantity of the injected fat material it has to be taken into account that only about 75% of the transferred fat cells grow and additionally water is removed. This ultimately leads to an increase in size of about 50 percent of the previously injected volume.
