Mammoplasty – Breast Augmentation Surgery

MAMMOPLASTY – BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY

This surgery increases the volume, fullness and symmetry of your breasts. Increasing the breasts volume greatly raises our patients self-image because it increases breast projection, and improves the balance of the breasts with the rest of the body allowing our patients to use clothes they always dreamed of.

We recommend silicone implants because they are higher quality, and offer superior benefits compared to other types of implants available. Thinking of our patients, we offer personalized assistance with a brand representative in Colombia who will provide professional, discreet assistance in choosing the implant size that better fits your expectations.

After their recovery period, our patients do not have any issues while breastfeeding and can take their routines up including exercising, traveling by plane, or diving with no restrictions.

This surgery is ideal for people from 18 until 60 years old. People between 61 and 70 years old must request authorization from their physician to have this surgery done.

This surgery is also ideal for people with an excellent health condition, no mental or psychological problems and with a positive, realistic outlook on the results.

It is possible that your body rejects the implants and that they must be removed. This rejection can happen days or months after the surgery. You might also experience changes in nipple or breast sensation; right after the surgery, the breasts are sore and patients can lose all feeling in their nipples or, on the contrary, feel extreme tenderness. It is common to have these changes in nipple sensation, but they subside some months after the procedure.

1. All your questions and concerns must have been resolved by your surgeon.

2. 10 days before the surgery, you cannot take any anti-inflammatory, aspirins, omega 3, 6 or 9, or vitamin E. These medications might increase the risk of bleeding.

3. You cannot have cold symptoms.

4. You need to arrange for someone to pick you up at the hospital after the procedure

This is an outpatient procedure, we use local anesthesia and intravenous sedation or general anesthesia; it lasts 1/2 hours. We recommend inserting the implants through the areolar edge. These implants can be placed over or under the pectoral muscle; this decision is made based on the patients’ anatomy and the approach is discussed during the initial consultation.

Right after surgery, you will start using a support bra specially designed for mammoplasty recovery. You must use this bra around the clock during the first month of recovery; then, only at nights until advised otherwise. Fluid discharge is normal during the first days. Swelling starts to subside on day 3 or 4 and continues over the first month.

When the implants were placed under the pectoral muscle, it is normal to experience mild discomfort during the first month, especially when the patient is lying in bed. Patients can resume their activities after day three, avoiding heavy exercising or high-impact activities during the first month. The stitches are removed between day 10 and 12 post-surgery, or an absorbable suture can be used especially with patients who come for other cities or countries.

  • Apply cold compresses during the first three days
  • Avoid physically demanding activities during the first week after surgery
  • Apply warm compresses after day three
  • Personal hygiene can be done normally
  • Also, remember that it is very important to attend your post-op s, take the medications prescribed, and have between 10 and 12 post-op massages in our wellness center.

3 days However, keep in mind that:

  • Patients who live in other cities of Colombia or abroad must stay in the city for: 12-15 days
  • Stitches removal: 10-12 days after surgery. An absorbable suture can be used especially with patients who come for other cities or countries.
  • Post-op appointments: every 3 days, they can be done via skype (J-gil79)

Testimonials

My name is Estefanía Pedraza, I am 26 years old, and I had a breast augmentation two months ago with Dr. Julio Gil. I decided to go to Dr. Gil´s office because a colleague from work, who had a liposuction done some months ago, recommended the doctor. The results of my colleague’s liposuction were amazing, her recovery was speedy and that is why I was eager to ask for a consult with Dr. Gil. My procedure was scheduled a week after my initial appointment, a week after the surgery I was feeling fine, more beautiful and confident. During my initial appointment, Dr. Gil was very kind and explained the step-by- step of my surgery, he pointed the risks associated with the procedure and contacted me with the implants brand representative to select my implant’s size. Today, I can say that I will choose Dr. Gil again for any procedure. He is very professional and responsible.
