Should I Expect Armpit Odour While Recovering From Breast Au...

All surgical procedures come with some risk. Fortunately, serious complications are very rare with breast augmentation. That said, there are some complications that can occur, such as when you have odour from an armpit. Without a proper diagnosis from the surgeon who performed the procedure, it is difficult to explain what the cause could be. Horrible smell in the armpit is usually associated with an infection, although there are some rare instances when the odour could be a side effect of medications being taken during the recovery period. More about infections An infection is the most problematic complication caused by breast augmentation. However, they are very rare, occurring in less than one per cent of cases. Infections usually become apparent within the first two to three weeks post operation, when things don’t seem to be quite right. If the armpit odour is due to infection, it will be accompanied by common signs of infections, such as: Swollen and tender breast Redness around the breast Wound discharge Feeling unwell with a higher temperature Pains and body aches similar to a flu If you notice these signs, you should contact the surgeon who performed the procedure immediately. In some cases, a mild infection can be managed with antibiotics, though this is rarely…

5 Myths About Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation usually involves a plastic surgeon inserting an implant beneath the breast so it looks larger. The procedure can be used to enlarge small breasts or fill out large breasts that have emptied out following pregnancy or some other event. There are many other reasons why women consider breast augmentation, like to reshape their breasts or correct breasts of unequal size. Many patients who have breast augmentation are generally pleased with the results. However, it is important that you know what can and cannot be achieved with this procedure. Here are some common misconceptions about breast augmentation: Myth #1: Breast implants last forever Statistics show that 25 per cent of women need a subsequent surgery after 10 years. There are many reasons why you would need a second procedure, such as a leaking implant, “scar shell” forming around the implant or distortion of the shape, all of which require surgery to correct the problem. Myth #2: Breasts with implants feel the same to the touch as real breasts While silicone breasts are designed to give the same look as real breasts, they are artificial and cannot offer the same feel as natural breasts. That said, you are more likely to notice the presence of an implant in a woman…

Breast Augmentation For Someone Who Is Prone To Keloids

Any surgical procedure that requires an incision will result in the formation of a scar where the cut was closed. The initial scar usually lasts about six weeks, after which it matures and begins to gradually appear pale and flat as it fades with time. After several years, a normal scar will be virtually unnoticeable to the naked eye.

5 Tips To Get Rid Of Abdominal Bloating After Breast Augment...

Bloating after breast augmentation is a strange phenomenon that does not seem to occur with other non-abdominal surgeries such as face lifts or arm lifts. The bloated belly is particularly noticeable among thin and fit patients, and seems to peak around two to three days post-surgery before subsiding one to three weeks after the procedure. The swelling should resolve completely in two to three months post-operation. Likely causes of abdominal bloating include: Anaesthesia drugs or painkillers that slow down your bowel movement Inactivity due to limited body movement for some time Slow digestion leading to bloating and constipation Gravity causing fluids in your breasts, lower chest, and upper abdomen to flow down Although the bloating is normal after breast augmentation, it can be very confusing for many patients. Even as you wait for it to resolve naturally in the coming weeks, there are a few things you can do yourself to hasten the process. For standard postoperative care, make sure that you follow your surgeon’s instructions to avoid aggravating the situation: Avoid any chores or activities that require you to raise your arm above the head for about 10 days. Take a break from work for at least seven days, within which you should get complete bed rest. You can…
