In particular, the first phase of the rehabilitation

From that, how the woman copes with the seams after mammoplasty and carried out a medical recommendation, it depends on how easy and seamless will be the entire period of rehabilitation and the desired result of the operation.

Rehabilitation after breast augmentation takes about 6 months. Immediately after the surgery the woman is under medical supervision, for a period of 24 hours. In the event of a sharp development of complications, she will be provided with emergency medical assistance. In this period the patient is beset severe pain caused by swelling of the tissue and muscle damage.

Home mode

The first two days at home followed a sparing mode, it's not worth the tire, the greater the need for sleep, so that the domestic charge should take the members of the family. On the fifth day after surgery, a woman comes to the hospital for examination, if necessary, it performs the processing of the seams. On her one more week-saving home mode, in which it is prohibited to:

  • sleep lying down on his stomach
  • make sudden hand movements
  • burdening the shoulders
  • tilt your torso parallel to the floor
  • raise your hands above your head
  • you can raise no more than 1 kg

After 7 days, the woman once again held control examination in the clinic. On the 10-14 day her remove the stitches. If all goes well, it is possible to carry out light domestic work, but yet without sails forward and carrying weights. The best medicine to gradually return to the usual lifestyle — walks in the fresh air.

In the first week after surgery with the insertion of implants, you may experience an increase in body temperature. It is considered the standard — the body gets used to aliena's body inside himself. To shoot down the temperature, they can be simple paracetamol, so as not to create excessive load on the liver.

In the rehabilitation period it is important to eat properly. The food must be light, but nutritious and varied. A speedy recovery to contribute dairy products, vegetables, fruits, lean meat and fish. To remove toxins from the body is recommended to drink herbal teas, pure water without gas with ginger and lemon.

The first month after surgery it is forbidden to have sex — this can lead to the displacement of the implants. As stated above, in the first rehabilitation period, it is necessary to wear compression underwear for a day and a night.

Compression underwear

For that we need to wear a compression garment? After the surgery, the mammary glands are very sensitive to the track seams. If in this period will have the severity of the mammary glands, may stand and stretch, the breasts become softer, in this case, a thin seam turns into a wide waistband that won't go away without appropriate treatment.

One more argument — the silicone implants until holds together the traumatized tissue of the mammary glands and without which they may migrate towards the nipple. Visually, it's drive all efforts to mammoplasty to zero. When the chest is increased to 2 and more size, then the muscles of the chest and the shoulder girdle using compression faster get used to the new physical stress.

Compression underwear with a certain degree of fixation doctor prescribes. The bra is made from soft, but durable elastane, which will provide the necessary support and at the same time massaging the thoracic glands, and at the same time providing an escape for lymphatic circulation and a normal blood microcirculation. The size of the dish should ensure the fixed position of the chest — shift in the slopes and cornering. Straps launched specially wide, to ease the burden of the shoulder girdle. Lock the belt at the top and bottom of the bra we recommend to choose so that the well holding the breasts in one position, but not squeezed the bushing looks like.

How many it is necessary to wear compression underwear? For each differently. In the first month of rehabilitation is worn twenty-four hours a day. After definitely worn while playing sports, regardless of the level of physical burden. At a time when the pressure bra it is possible to replace the normal determined by the attending physician. He also gives recommendations, bra what model it is possible to wear in the first six months after surgery. Some modern designs of underwear can cause stagnation of lymph and lead to the development of malignant diseases, the samples, which do not provide proper support. Breasts after mammoplasty without the support can again stretch and lose my beautiful form.

Care for stitches after mammoplasty

The operation is the correction of the breast is always accompanied by the overlap of the seams. In the rehabilitation period it is important to properly care for them, to avoid complications.

In the first few days after mammoplasty can be the woman's breasts, the bandage, in some cases, the seams fixed the drainage for the escape of excess fluid. At this moment it is not appropriate to touch up the seams and take themselves off the bandages. As usual for 3-5 days after the surgery, the doctor himself takes off his bandages and pulls out the drainage.

Until the removal of stitches from her breast after mammoplasty, the patient wears compression underwear. She is forbidden to erase the seams, oiling their any creams, gels or alcohol liquids. When showering at the seams overlap a sterile adhesive tape. The main condition of this rehabilitation period is to prevent the inflammation of the seams.

After removal of stitches it is necessary to observe hygiene to healing. It usually happens for 14-20 days. The seams of poorly healing, if a woman smokes (nicotine hinders the supply of oxygen to the tissues), and taking hormonal contraceptives. The risk of poor wound stitches is in women of obese and undergoing treatment of tumour diseases. When installing the implants a long time is not healing the seams — a sign of rejection of the implants, which threatens to infectious inflammation. For rapid healing of postoperative scars apply vacuum to the closure of the wounds.

So, in the rehabilitation period care of the surgical stitches will come on a regular rotation of underwear and keeping them clean and dry.
