Breast augmentation, also known as breast implants or mammoplasty, involves inserting silicone or saline implants into the breasts to increase volume and improve shape. The procedure can be an option for women who want larger breasts for aesthetic reasons, or for those who have experienced a loss of breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss.
Before a breast augmentation operation, the patient will have a thorough consultation with a plastic surgeon at Groruddalsklinikken. During this consultation, the surgeon will evaluate the patient’s medical history, discuss the desired size and shape of the breasts, and provide information about the procedure and any risks or complications.
The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia and the surgeon will make an incision either in the breast fold, around the nipple or in the armpit. The implant is then placed either behind the mammary gland or behind the pectoral muscle, depending on the patient’s anatomical conditions and the desired result. After the implants are in place, the incisions are closed with sutures, and the patient is monitored for a short period before they are allowed to go home.
After the operation, there may be some discomfort and swelling in the breasts, but this gradually decreases over a few weeks. Patients are usually advised to wear a specially designed support bra to support the breasts and promote healing. It is important to follow all instructions from the surgeon carefully to ensure a successful and safe recovery.
Like any surgical procedure, breast augmentation also involves certain risks and complications. These can include infection, bleeding, scarring, asymmetry or changes in nipple sensation. It is therefore important to choose an experienced plastic surgeon who can minimize the risk and provide the right follow-up after the operation.
