Post Surgery Compression Wear

Post Surgery Bra

An Overview of Post Surgical Healing

After an aesthetic or reconstructive surgery, you may experience some discomfort, pain, stiffness, or temporary numbness. Trauma in the surgical area leads to inflammation. A Medical Compression Garment or Bra assists in the healing process and improves procedure results.

The benefits of proper compression and support can reduce the risk of seromas, lymphedema, hematomas, and skin unevenness.

Accurate compression and support:
• reduces fluid buildup increases blood circulation
• promotes proper skin adhesion to newly contoured areas
• holds surgical dressings in place until removed
• supports incision to heal properly

Most of the swelling and bruising subsides within a few weeks though some light swelling can last up to six months. Doctors advise their patients to wear compression garments for at least the first 4-6 weeks after a procedure. Patients may find it more comfortable to wear the garments until all the swelling has completely subsided, and the final results are revealed.

How to Speed Up Your Recovery From Surgery

post surgery recovery aids

Surgery can be a painful and hard process to go through. Luckily, there are certain supplements that can be taken before and after the procedure to prepare your body for the intricate process of repairing itself.

Some nutritional supplements help speed wound healing while others reduce bruising, swelling, and discomfort such as pain and itch. Others are recommended to prepare your body for the intense experience and increase resilience.

Optimizing your post-surgical diet by eating healthy foods and taking supplements also improves the immune response and prevents wound infections, sepsis (blood poisoning), and other possible complications.

Vitamin CVitamin C Capsules

Vitamin C supplementation is highly recommended by experts. It helps promote healing and it is the key nutrient required for making collagen, which is what heals your tissue together.

It plays an essential role in collagen formation, a resilient immune function, and as a tissue antioxidant. Also, it is a free-radical scavenger.

Without proper amounts of vitamin C proper healing is not possible. Additional vitamin C intake before, during, and after the operation is especially recommended for those who smoke and others who may risk being deficient.

It is recommend to take vitamin C to anyone with an open wound because there is evidence that it helps them heal faster. Highly recommend  following an injury to the skin because it builds collagen, and many surgeon have long used it post-operatively .

ZincZinc supplements

The next supplement and possibly one of the most important is zinc. Medical research has shown that zinc supplements can increase the speed of healing dramatically.

Zinc has reduced healing time after surgery by 43% in some cases. It plays a vital role in the immune system can reduce inflammation, bacterial growth, and scar tissue creation, whereas a deficiency can worsen the scar.

Zinc also helps to aid proper metabolism, balance blood sugar, and increase sensory perception.

Vitamin B

Vitamin B has just recently been noticed for its benefits in the healing process. However, there is limited information on its exact benefits and function in the healing process.

Vitamin B complex is thought to speed up wound healing, increase protein synthesis and the amount of repair cells at the wound. It also prevents excessive inflammation. Vitamin B5 is particularly beneficial right after the wound occurs.

Opt for either a Vitamin B complex or a multi-nutrient that contains 25 to 50 mg of the B complex vitamins.

Another important supplement is vitamin A. it is required in cell growth (especially epithelial and bone formation), which is very important in the healing process that takes place after surgery. It is known to activate production of connective tissue, including collagen (promotes tissue synthesis), and helps new blood vessels grow , which is necessary in nourishing newly formed tissue. Vitamin A  also enhances resistance to infection by stimulating the body’s immune function.

 Arnica

ArnicaA very popular supplement is arnica montana. Arnica is a mountain extract that has been used for many years.

It helps reduce and clear bruising and it also speeds the healing process after surgery. Available as a cream and in capsules available from most chemist or natural remedy shops.Probiotics

Probiotics are not only known for their specific healing benefits regarding certain surgeries but they are known to have beneficial effects in general.

Surgeryl patients often receive antibiotic treatment. This disrupts the gut flora and may create fungal disorders (including yeast infections), digestive problems, and diarrhea.

Probiotics can help neutralize these unwanted effects.After surgery, it’s recommended to use a strain that contains acidophilus and bifida bacteria.

 

Capsular Contracture After Breast Implants

capsular-contracture

Breast Augmentation in Thailand is like any other surgery in that it comes with a list of potential side effects. For this reason, you should always consult with your physician and plan your surgery before you go under the knife. Remember, education is the key to preventing serious side effects from your chosen surgery.

Take time to consider the risks of experiencing capsular contracture. When you have your consultation, ask your doctor what can be done to limit the chances of this condition, and you’ll have a better chance of receiving a successful surgical breast enlargement.

Capsular contracture is not a normal occurrence and happens in about 1-5% of breast augmentation patients. The physiology of capsular contracture is the formation of collagen fibres created by an immune response to the foreign body (implant) which then contract around the breast implant. This leads to deformation of the implant and discomfort/pain. Capsular contracture is classified as follows:

  • Grade I – breast is normal and soft
  • Grade II – breast is little firm but appears normal
  • Grade III – breast is firm and appears abnormal
  • Grade IV – the breast hard and painful, appears abnormal

What is Capsular Contracture?

Capsular contracture is a complication after breast implant surgery. The natural defenses of your body form scar tissue around foreign structures in your body to prevent them from harming you. That’s why a wall of scar tissue can grow around implants, making your breast feel hard and immovable over time. Capsular contracture refers not only to the scar tissue encapsulating the breast implant, but also to the shrinking of the scar tissue as it tightens around the implant. read more here…

How can I prevent Capsular Contracture?

This condition is serious as it can damage the appearance of costly breast augmentation surgery. So, what can you do to prevent this from happening? While there is nothing you can do to completely eliminate the chances of capsular contracture, you can reduce the risk of this condition by wearing a compression bra, doing compression exercises, taking vitamin E, receiving post-op massages, and consulting with your doctor to determine the best type of implant, for your body.

Treating Capsular Contracture in Breast
If you’ve suffered capsular contracture in the breast, you should contact a doctor immediately. One thing you can do is to take antibiotics for the condition. These will help to soften the area surrounding your breast.

Or, you can get a capsulectomy. This is the most effective treatment for capsular contracture. It removes the hardened capsule around your breast. Doing so helps reduce the risk of future occurrences of this serious condition.

Pregnancy After Breast Implants

breast feed with implants

Do you wonder what would happen if you became pregnant after travelling to Thailand for a breast augmentation? Will your breasts change again? Can you breast feed?

Here are the answers to your questions.

Will your breasts still get bigger if you are pregnant?

When your body is preparing to nurture a child, your breasts grow larger so the milk can come in. After having breast implant surgery in Thailand it is likely that your breasts will grow even larger than if you didn’t have the implants.

Can you breastfeed after a breast augmentation?

After having breast surgery, you should still be able to breast feed normally and there should be no problems with your milk coming in. However, a visit to a lactation specialist may be able to help as he or she may have some recommendations to make feeding easier. You won’t know how your milk supply has been affected until you try.

If you are concerned about your ability to breastfeed you should talk to your surgeon as different approaches and the placement of your incisions can impact your chances. For instance, incisions made through the armpit will be less likely to cause problems than those made through the areola.

When the nipple is moved to a new location after surgery, it may also disrupt the nerve supply to the nipple and areola and the milk glands and ducts. However, nerves can often regrow – it is best to talk to your surgeon about any concerns you may have.

However, there may be an increased risk of mastitis, when breast tissue becomes inflamed. This means your breast may become red, sore and hard to the touch. However, this condition can affect any mum, whether or not you have had surgery.

Will my breast implants look the same after breastfeeding?

Every woman is different and there is no way to predict whether your breasts will look the same after breastfeeding. Some women find there is no great difference and they do not develop stretch marks, while others notice some sagging.
