Breast Augmentation Surgery Australia

Much has been said about breast augmentation. Those who have picked a side and decided to get those breasts whipped to a shape will have more than a few questions. In a bid to make everyone’s life easier, here are a few pre and post-op facts that will make a patient’s surgical experience easier.

Do you qualify?

Appropriate breast implant candidates generally include women who are reasonably fit. Women who have realistic expectations for the outcome of breast augmentation surgery and understand the best possible outcomes associated with surgery are best suited for the procedure.

In order to undergo surgery, you will be asked to

A patient will be asked to get a blood test to ensure that they are healthy and fit.  Patients may be asked to take or stop certain medications or adjust their current medications. They will be asked to stop smoking. They will also be told to avoid taking aspirin and certain anti-inflammatory drugs as they can increase bleeding.

Patient need to prepare before breast Surgery

If your breast surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, the patient should arrange for someone to drive you to and from surgery and to stay with them for at least the first night following surgery. Patients should ideally take about a week off from work or their strenuous activities.

The Aftercare Advantage/Advice

Post the surgery, patients should get plenty of rest and avoid strenuous activity, including heavy lifting or exercise. However, they are encouraged to walk around the house occasionally to promote proper blood circulation and diminish the chances of developing blood clots.

After effects

In the beginning, the breasts may feel tender, sore or numb, but pain medications prescribed by the surgeon will alleviate any discomfort. The treatment area may also be swollen, firm-feeling, bruised or red, but these are normal symptoms that will gradually go away. The surgeon will monitor the patient’s progress, including checking on the absorbable stitches used during surgery, which should dissolve on their own within two to four weeks, and letting the patient know when it is safe to resume more vigorous activities, including exercise.

Results will last for

Breast surgery results are immediately visible. Over time, post-surgical swelling will subside and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with their new image will continue to grow as they fully recover from surgery. In order to achieve the desired results, the post-operative instructions must be adhered completely.
