Plastic surgeon Stanislav Ekimov, who is on the list of “Top Best Plastic Surgeons”, on innovative techniques for correcting the shape of the breast
Perfect breasts: everything you need to know before you go to the doctor
Innovative techniques for breast correction are represented by the following types of procedures:
- Mastopexy – a breast lift by removing excess skin and moving the areola and nipple to a more aesthetic position.
- Endoscopic breast augmentation is a method in which implants are inserted through the armpit.
- Lipolifting is a method of correcting the shape and size of the breast when fat is used instead of implants, pumped from other areas of the body.
- Mammoreduction – breast reduction due to the removal of adipose and glandular tissue, stretched skin.
Why are these methods considered innovative? Firstly, they allow you to get an excellent result without visible consequences (scars, scars, etc.). Secondly, the recovery period after the above operations is usually not more than a week. After that, you can return to the usual rhythm of life. Thirdly, all of these procedures have minimal risks of complications.
What problems can these techniques solve?
Modern mammoplasty techniques can solve almost any aesthetic and medical problems:
- Asymmetry of the breast or nipple.
- The presence of a very small breast.
- Excessive breast enlargement or hypertrophy.
- Mastopotosis (prolapse of the mammary glands).
- Sagging breasts after childbirth.
In addition, men often resort to mammoplasty. Gynecomastia (enlargement of the mammary glands) most often becomes an indication for breast correction.
How safe are innovative breast correction techniques today?
Any operation is a risk, but modern plastic surgery minimizes them as much as possible. This is facilitated by the preparatory stage, which involves a complete examination of the patient, modeling, the study of anatomical features, etc., and the use of modern technical equipment, and the very specifics of the methods. More specifically, with the right approach in 99%, the operation is successful.
Are there any contraindications for using these techniques?
Mammoplasty is contraindicated for persons with serious diseases: intolerance to anesthesia, septic conditions, heart disease, oncological diseases. In addition, doctors often advise to refrain from surgery until delivery.
What is the preparation for plastic surgery?
Of course, the first thing the patient must undergo a full clinical examination, which includes:
- Inspection of the therapist and gynecologist.
- Laboratory research.
The examination scheme is determined individually – depending on the characteristics of the patient and the presence of various diseases. Based on the results of the examination, preliminary treatment can be prescribed.
Also, preparation involves the rejection of hormonal contraceptives, drugs containing salicylates (Aspirin, Diclofenac and other anti-inflammatory drugs), alcohol and smoking.
What difficulties await a woman in the postoperative period?
The most important thing is the need to reduce physical activity. You will have to give up sports, running and other activities for a while until full recovery. Painful sensations and some stiffness in movements are also possible. These are standard consequences of such operations, which completely pass during the first week.
Otherwise, when the operation is carried out correctly, the patient fully maintains his efficiency.
How often do complications occur after plastic surgery on the chest?
With proper preoperative preparation, postoperative care and the operation itself, the risk of complications is minimal. The main thing is to choose the right clinic and follow the doctor’s instructions exactly.
What can you advise to those who want but do not dare to undergo plastic surgery on the chest?
You must answer your question: “Do you like your breasts? Do you feel comfortable with her? ” If not, then you should definitely contact a surgeon, because dissatisfaction with one’s own breasts can cause strong complexes and the inability to live a full life. In addition, do not forget that sometimes mammoplasty is not only an aesthetic operation, but also a medical one, on which your health can depend.
