BREAST RECONSTRUCTION

Hesitate no longer! Breast implants are the best way to have a long-lasting, safe and natural-looking augmentation to your breasts.

What is BREAST RECONSTRUCTION?

If you are one of the thousands of women who have one or both breasts removed for a cancer-related condition, you will want to consider breast reconstruction surgery.

The decision of whether to undergo breast reconstruction is extremely personal. Most women cannot imagine not getting breast reconstruction. Some women prefer to put on a prosthesis while others may choose not to. And still others may go for quite a while without breast reconstruction and then come to a decision to get the reconstruction.

Breast reconstruction is a surgical procedure, performed by an experienced and qualified plastic surgeon, to restore the shape and appearance of your breasts after having complete or partial breast removal surgery (mastectomy).

Breast reconstruction has made a huge difference both physically and emotionally to a lot of women who had mastectomies. But it is essential for you to understand the limits of the surgery prior to deciding to have one.

The reconstruction produces a brand new breast however, it is not natural – it is not going to have adequate sensation. When you (or another person) touch it, it will feel normal to your hand, but it gets not much sensation itself.

This surgery is an excellent option to think about. The majority of women feel that undergoing the surgery is worth it, mainly because it becomes more convenient to wear certain types of clothing. For a lot of women, reconstruction equally provides another significant purpose – it helps them place their cancer experiences behind them. At the same time, not everybody is happy with reconstruction.

The decision to undergo the surgery is highly individual. Before making a decision, be certain to become as knowledgeable as you can be about the different procedures and what they involve. You will next have to decide what you want done and when you want to have it done.

When to Have the Surgery

One of the decisions you will have to make is when you want the reconstruction to be done. The reconstruction can be done just after the mastectomy or it can be done at a later time.

The benefit of having it done immediately is that you won’t need yet another surgery later. Women who decide to have the reconstruction done at a later point in time are those that haven’t yet decided if they want to have reconstruction or who do not yet feel emotionally ready to take that step.

Types of Breast Reconstruction

There are two main types of reconstructive surgery: those using synthetic materials (implants) and those using your own tissues (flaps). There are also variations within these types.

The type of reconstruction that suits you best depends on your preferences, the effect you desire, and the extent of your breast cancer surgery.

Implants

There are two kinds of implants, saline and silicone. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water that closely matches the salt content in our bodies. The silicone implant is a silicone sack filled with silicone gel.

The procedure for silicone and saline implants is similar. The implant is positioned behind the pectoralis muscle, the main muscle in the chest wall. Then the skin is closed over it. If you have the implant inserted at the same time you are getting a mastectomy, it will not add days to your hospital stay.

Before a woman decides to have surgery, she should think carefully about her expectations as well as possible risks, and discuss them with her surgeon. The best candidates for breast enlargement are women who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the way they look.

Breast enlargement in Thailand is an excellent choice for you if you have at least one of the following conditions:

  • You consider yourself to have small or underdeveloped breasts.
  • You believe your figure is out of proportion due to small breasts and in turn, make your hips appear wider.
  • You feel you have limited choices of flattering clothing or swim wear styles due to small breasts.
  • You are dissatisfied with your breasts losing shape and volume after pregnancy, weight loss, or with aging.
  • You are unhappy with the upper part of the breast appearing “empty”.
  • Your breasts have asymmetry or vary in size or shape from one another.
  • You currently have breast implants, and are experiencing problems with them.
  • One or both breasts failed to develop normally, or have an unnatural, elongated shape

    Proper breast massage is very important after surgery in order to achieve a good breast shape and lower the risk of capsular contractures. During follow- up, the surgeon will instruct her on the proper way this is done. However, the occurrence of capsular contractures is also dependent on the body’s healing process after surgery and this condition can still occur even with proper massage.

          Frequently Asked Questions

          Q1: What are the advantages and disadvantages of silicone and saline implants?

          Answer : Silicone has a more natural feel and look. In the occurrence of leakage, saline is much less injurious to the surrounding tissues.

          Q2: What are some points to consider about placing implants over or under the muscle?

          Answer : Implant movement when pectorals are flexed is more obvious with implants below the muscle. Women with scant natural breast tissue will have less obvious “augmented look” if implants are placed below the muscle. Mammograms are reportedly slightly less accurate if implants are above the muscle.

          Q3: Will I be asleep during surgery?

          Answer : You will be asleep under general anesthesia.

          Q4: How long will I stay in the hospital?

          Answer : You need to avoid putting pressure on your buttocks for three days, so you will lie down on a prone position. On the fourth day, you will be assisted in sitting on one buttock at a time. You may sit fully on your buttocks on the seventh day.

          Q5: How many days after operation can I leave Bangkok?

          Answer : You need to return for check-up 7-10 days after surgery, after which you can travel or return to work.

          Q6: How long will it take me to recover?

          Answer: Most patients can walk around slowly the day after surgery, and steadily improve over the next few days. There will be swelling and bruising, most of which will resolve in about 2 weeks. Limitation of physical activity and contact with breasts must be observed for about 4 weeks. . Full wound maturation and final results will gradually occur over 6-12 months.

          Q7: How do I care for myself after the operation?

          Answer: Your surgeon will teach you a special breast massage technique and prescribe a support bra for a few months.

          Q8: What could go wrong?

          Answer: Some risks of surgery include bleeding, adverse response to anesthesia, infection, delayed healing, asymmetry, nerve injury, numb areolae and nipples, contractures or keloid at incision site, contracture around the implant, rippling of skin over some parts of the implant, leakage, and need for revision surgery.

          Q9: How do I prepare for surgery?

          Answer: To avoid complications and reduce risk factors you need to stop smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, taking hormonal pills, herbal supplements, and medicines (other than those that your doctor allows you continue), at least two weeks before your schedule. People with diseases need surgical clearance from their medical specialist.
