Breast correction procedure at Alfa Medic General Hospital 

Breast correction procedures are performed under general or local anesthesia, and take about two hours. The implant can be placed under the breast tissue or under the muscle, and the incision can be made under the breasts, under the armpits or around the dark skin surrounding the nipple (areola). An experienced surgeon will ensure that every incision that was made eventually becomes invisible. The placement of implants and entry point depend on the desires and individual body composition of the patient, and will be discussed with your surgeon during your consultation.

Recovery time depends on the physical condition of the patient, but most clients typically return to daily activities within a few days depending on how demanding your daily tasks are. After surgery, patients often feel extreme sensitivity in the chest in the next two to three weeks. Avoiding direct physical contact will reduce discomfort during this period. Three to four weeks after surgery, the pain will disappear completely and the natural feeling of your breasts will return.

A brief history of breast augmentation

In the early 1920s, breast augmentations had been performed by injecting fat into the breast. This method proved to be ineffective, because the fat that was injected did not remain in the breast, but was absorbed into the body. This type of breast augmentation was abandoned after 20 years. Injection of silicone, which started in Japan, and insertion of polyvinyl sponge were introduced after the failed methods of injecting fat, but were also abandoned because many women had serious medical complications. Silicone and saline implants are made of silicone, and they are filled with silicone gel or solution, which can be traced back to the early 1960s, when a safe method for breast enlargement was discovered. In various forms, structures and volumes which are used to this day, technology has perfected different implants used for breast augmentation, and your doctor at Alfa Medic General Hospital will help you choose the most suitable type and safest method of implant for you.
