Contraindications and precautions of breast augmentation surgery
Breast augmentation surgery is not meant to increase the projection of the breasts but as well as to correct breast asymmetries and reconstruct the breasts of those who have undergone mastectomy. Though this surgical procedure has dramatically been famous to women who want to look better, there is still a set of risks and complications that can be associated with the surgery if precautions and warnings would be taken for granted.
What conditions may interfere with breast augmentation surgery?
As with any other type of surgery, breast augmentation has its own set of contraindications. Among these are the insertion of more than one implant inside each breast and liquid injection through the implant capsule after breast enhancement. These are not recommended but there are surgeons that still try to perform these things so you must be aware.
Also, if you are suffering from the following condition, you are strongly advised not to undergo cosmetic surgery: • A week immune system
• Blood clotting and other wound healing disorders
• A reduced blood circulation in the area where the procedure will be performed
• Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and other autoimmune diseases
Also, here are additional factors to consider carefully for the breast augmentation surgery:
Get a mammogram prior to the surgery and six months after to evaluate the progress. If you already have breast implants, make sure to inform the technician as breast implants can cause interference with the mammography and prevent the early discovery of breast cancer.
If the technician is fully informed, he/she can use can use specific methods to reduce the risk of implant rupture and to get good images of the breast tissue. This way, the pressure would be controlled by the technician as well. As every bit of advice, too much pressure applied on the breasts can cause the implant to rupture.
