breast augmentation in the philippinesBreast augmentation procedure will take 1 to 2 hours to complete and this is performed under sedation with intercostal block. Pain is one of the most common concerns that patients for breast augmentation think of. Because of this, we have give this pain issue a lot of attention. We have formed a pain management protocol to address this in which patients are give intercostal blocks to numb their chest before surgery and immediately after surgery. This will help us control the pain. On top of this, patients are started on single IV pain medications combined with oral pain meds so that the effect of these medications would overlap each other.

To be honest with you, majority of my patients does not complain of pain but more of the discomfort due to swelling of the breast after surgery. But swelling is temporary and will eventually resolve through time. After surgery, as I said there will be swelling and some bruising that peaks on the 3rd day and start to subside on the 4th day onwards. You will be instructed to wear special bra used by breast augmented patient during the first 2 to 3 weeks to help control the swelling and also give you more comfort. Sutures are removed on the 7th day after surgery and wounds are healed by the 10th day after surgery. For your activity this is gradually increase after surgery since you need to rest for a day or two, you will be allowed to do some light cardio activity on the 3rd week after surgery like walking, and then you may resume regular gym exercise after 4 to 5 weeks. Patients are advise to refrain from sexual activity for 3 weeks after surgery since this may causes hematoma formation and pain.

Silicon breast implants in the Philippines do have more superior results compared with saline implants. It gives the breast natural fullness and contour, especially at the upper and outer pole/portion of the breast that cannot be attain with a saline implants. Also the feel of a breast with silicon breast implant is more natural, and patients would often comment that they hardly feel the implant when they massage their breast. This is because breast tissue density is almost identical with the silicon cohesive gel than saline implant. In addition to this, Silicon implants also have a very low rate for deflation and rippling after surgery. I never had a patient with silicon implant that had spontaneous deflation.

To know more about your breast augmentation in the Philippines procedure, it would be best to consult your surgeon, so that you may know all your options.
