When talking about breast surgery, people immediately think about increasing breast size. However, there are surgical operations not only to increase the bust, but also to reduce or embellish it. "Obviously there are different types of surgeries: increase, elevation, reduction and reconstruction are the basic. However, each patient has an absolutely personalized indication, and that is so because it is very difficult to find that both breasts of a woman are completely symmetrical, "explains Dr.. Vicente Paloma Mora, national and international specialist in Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery. According to the doctor, there are two clearly differentiated groups of people who request breast augmentation: "girls between 18 and 25 years old who have not developed a breast and women between 35 and 45 who have had children and they have lost the volume and the smoothness of the breasts ".

Breast surgery does not usually involve great risks: "The only thing we can worry about is that a capsular contracture (feeling that the chest is harder to touch than normal) or a prosthetic rupture (something that, with current prostheses , is extremely rare), says Dr.. dove. And, as a general rule, these are operations that do not tend to present complications , although it must be borne in mind that, like any operation, they require prior and subsequent evaluation. "The whole process, from the operation until normal life can be done without effort, lasts about four days. And, in a month, you can already make life completely normal, "adds the doctor.
The recent news about the possibility that the PIP prosthesis (Poly Implant Prothèse) can be harmful has made many women interested in the different types of implants that exist. "The most commonly used prostheses are high-cohesive silicone gel, which can be round or anatomical, depending on the result the patient is looking for.. These are the ones that must be used, "says Dr.. Vicente Paloma.

"The advice of the Ministry of Health is that women with PIP implants go to their surgeon to bring closer controls. My personal advice is that, without hurry, they are planning the replacement ", explains Dr.. Dove.
