Detailed information on breast implants – here.
the most popular in the world , in Latvia as well as at our clinic. Breast augmentation is done if breast has not developed properly or a woman feels it is too small; or to restore the natural breast volume, which may have decreased as a result of pregnancy. Breast can be operated only 5 – 6 months after finishing breast feeding when the level of hormones allows tissue and glands to heal. In the recent years there has been the tendency in the world to place implants under the muscle to preserve a natural, more sustainable result as well as decrease the possible risk. Implants are inserted for whole life. Producers give a life long guarantee to their products. After the surgery each patient receives a personal implant passport and a certificate of guarantee. It has been proved long ado that implants do not cause or heal any diseases. In a month’s time after the operation, patients do not have any limitation in their life – they can go to sauna, pool, solarium, swimming, sunbathing, do sports, have and breastfeed children, fly and dive, etc. The breast implants come in various sizes, shapes and of various structures, aims. Taking into account the patient’s wishes, taste, possibilities, look of breast, location of nipples as well as proportion between size of chest and body, the specialist will help to choose the most appropriate implants. Price does not depend on size, but rather on type of implants and operation. Incision is around 4 cm long, and can be hid under the breast just above the crease, in the armpit or around the lower edge of the areola. Breast augmentation is done under general anaesthesia, you will stay in the clinic for one night, elasticised bandage should be worn for 1 week, special dressing – for 1 month. Limitation for 3 – 4 weeks to attend sauna, pools, baths, solarium, sports. The stitches are removed on the 10th day. The massage we will show should be applied from the 10th day. It would be nice if you were free from work, children, and household duties for 1 week.
If a woman has good breast volume, but not the shape – it is sagging, just breast lift can be performed. The patient’s tissue is used to get a good shape, projection and looks. Usually the overall size of breast does not change after this surgery, but breast is firmer, in its place, excess skin is removed. If breast is floppy and lacks volume (the so-called spaniel ears), breast lift and augmentation can be combined. Depending on amount of excess skin and location of areola, only a scar around areola will be seen. If breast has bigger volume, there will also be an inverted ‘T’ scar. The operation is performed under general anaesthetic; an overnight stay at the clinic is required. Elasticised bandage should be worn for a week, then a bra. Limitation for 3 – 4 weeks to attend sauna, baths, and solarium. The stitches are removed on the 10th day.
