Artigos sobre Mastopexia:
The older, larger weight losses and pregnancies usually are reflected in the breasts with a loss of elasticity, sagging and excess skin.
The mastopexy surgery is indicated in cases of breast ptosis ("sagging breasts"), in which it has a loss in the contour and firmness of the breasts. The goal is to improve the aesthetic contour of the breasts, giving a more youthful appearance to them.
In consultations prior to the surgery the best technique for each case will be chosen. The use or absence of breast prosthesis and the type of incision used will depend on several factors (such as the degree of ptosis, the amount of breast tissue and skin texture) to be analyzed in the query.
The mastopexy surgery takes 3 to 4 hours. Like any surgical procedure midsize, should be performed in the operating room and adequate structure under the supervision of an anesthesiologist. Typically drains are placed which are generally removed during the first day after surgery.
In the postoperative period is common some degree of pain, usually well controllable by analgesics. Edema is common in the early days, but with significant reduction to the 4th day. Drains are usually removed on the first day after surgery.
Care after surgery
In the first ten days after surgery the patient must sleep supine (face up), avoiding compression of the breasts. The surgical bra must be used for at least three weeks after the procedure. Complete rest only on day 1 postoperatively. The first week will be prevented efforts or large movements with their arms (arms). One can go back to work after 1 week. It can be to drive again after 2-3 weeks. In the first month the ideal physical activity is walking, avoiding greater efforts with their arms.
Any exposure to the sun should be completely avoided until the resolution of any bruising (postoperative temporary spots), and thereafter, always with sunscreen. The incision regions should never be exposed to the sun.
These guidelines represent an overview and may change depending on the case. All questions must be fully clarified in consultations prior to surgery.
Every surgical procedure carries risks that depend on the appropriate surgical care as infection, seroma, contracture, implant extrusion and others. All the risks and possible complications should be thoroughly discussed in the consultations prior to surgery. Talk to your surgeon and inquire through the videos and articles.
