About the surgery

Know more details

Just like the silicone prosthesis, mammoplasty is a breast surgery, with the difference that it can increase or reduce the size of that part of the body.

In the case of augmentation mammoplasty, the surgeon also makes incisions in the region to implant the prosthesis with the shape, texture and appropriate size chosen by the woman.

Already in the reduction mammoplasty, the surgeon makes some incisions that begin around the areola and go until the mammary and horizontal groove of this part of the body that also is known like inverted “T”.

After that, the breast tissue is mobilized and the excess breast reduction is done according to the need of the patient.

In addition to decreasing or enlarging the breasts, mammoplasty is also indicated for the reconstruction of breasts that have suffered accidents or withdrawals due to cancer.

Before and after

As with other procedures, it is never too much to remember that the patient must be sure of herself to adhere to mammoplasty. It is also necessary to perform routine exams such as blood and electrocardiogram in addition to imaging tests such as mammography, ultrasound and follow all medical guidelines regarding fasting and length of hospital stay.

After the mammoplasty, the woman should redouble the care in the postoperative phase, such as:

  • Wear surgical bra or support bra for 30 days;
  • Do not sleep on your side for a month and avoid sleeping in the prone position;
  • Avoid physical exercise for 90 days;
  • Do not pass cream on the surgical cut;
  • Take care of the hygiene and the points with delicacy;

The scar of the mammoplasty depends on the type of indication and its objective, whether the breast lift, the reduction or even the increase interfere in the incision, which can be around the areola, or in inverted T format, that extends from the areola to the inframammary groove.

Since the marking of incisions, sutures, dressings and postoperative, there are several measures used to minimize scars, applying specific dressings for the reduction of scars until they are practically imperceptible.

On average it is necessary to wait 3 to 6 months for the final result to be obtained.

Com os avanços em medicamentos e na tecnologia de equipamentos para controle e monitoramento do paciente, a anestesia geral se tornou a mais segura quando bem indicada.

Hoje em todos os procedimentos maiores, a anestesia geral é a melhor escolha de anestesia. Ela é superior a muitas outras alternativas oferecidas. A anestesia geral realizada num centro cirúrgico moderno, com equipamentos e medicações de última geração.

It is advisable to avoid exposing the scars to the sun in the first months, even with sunscreen.

This happens because the scars do not have the same amount of pigments to protect the skin from the action of the sun rays and under exposure they are prone to darken, so it is very important the daily use of sunscreen over the operated area.

Just like any other medical procedure, plastic surgery has certain risks. However, there are always several ways to reduce these risks so that surgery is safe.

In addition to an extremely skilled team, the use of high technology equipment makes it easier to control any situation. Some of the equipment used in all surgeries to maintain the safety of our patients are:

Thermal blankets
We use thermal blankets so that the patient is always warm and body temperature stabilized. This ensures greater peace of mind and more safety in the surgical procedure.

Elastic stockings and massager
In all surgeries, our patients use elastic stockings in conjunction with the Pneumatic Compression Massager (SCD) in the legs, which prevents complications in the circulatory system.

Bi-Spectral Index Monitoring
Bi-Spectral Index (BIS) monitoring is a system that continuously analyzes electroencephalograms to determine patients’ level of consciousness, stabilizing it whenever necessary.

This choice depends very much on the patient’s desire and the expected outcome of a lifting or reduction mammoplasty; in addition, factors such as the patient’s own anatomy and the amount of tissue at the time of the surgical indication may contribute to the need for the use of a small prosthesis, which in some cases helps to obtain a more favorable result.

As much as a good surgical technique, as following your surgeon’s guidelines are decisive for obtaining the best possible results after discharge.
