Breast prostheses and facelift

Dr. Hoogstra has been my plastic surgeon for over 25 years. He was the one who performed the first breast implant surgery until he replaced them this year. 22 years with them!
He gave me a face and neck lift that nobody notices the operation and I feel fantastic. More than an excellent professional and an incredible human being.

Dr. Hoogstra is the best professional! And the doctor's team also appreciate all the patience and good treatment!


Frequent questions

Can breast prostheses cause cancer?

So far, all studies show that patients who have prostheses are less likely to have cancer. It must be understood that this is not due to the prosthesis itself. Simply, when a patient requests to wear a prosthesis, we previously do studies and check-ups to see that her breasts are healthy and these studies must continue regularly over time.

Do I have fallen breasts?

If the breasts are small and a little saggy, surely with the placement of prostheses the two problems are solved, volume is added and they rise.

Can you bring my breasts closer together?

Yes, it is possible that they are more together because having more volume with a soutien will see more together. But if we evaluate the breasts without soutien, they will have more volume (with prostheses) but with the same direction or axis that they had before surgery.

Is it better to place the implant behind the pectoral?

At Hoogstra Medical Centers we use the subfacial route (under the fascia of the pectoral muscle). This new route combines the advantages of the submammary and submuscular routes, reduces the unwanted effects of the previous ones and the patient recovers more quickly and with less discomfort. We use video endoscopy, which helps us control hemostasis and dissection of the sub-facial plane.

"Round" or "drop" prostheses?

My suggestion is the round one. There are works that show that the drop-shaped prosthesis can be rotated. The textured prosthesis, high profile and round shape, are for me the most suitable. I use the gout ones in patients who have had their mammary glands removed and have to undergo reconstruction.

Smooth or rough prosthetics?

I started to put prostheses in 1984 and at that time we only had smooth prostheses, the percentage of encapsulation (hardness and breast deformation) represented 60% of the treated patients. For more than 10 years I have been using only textured prostheses and the encapsulation index is less than 3%.

Are the implants definitive?

Breast implants do not have an expiration date once placed. Doing their corresponding medical checks they have no indication to change.

Can they break?

Prostheses can be broken by a sudden blow like a bone can break. Spontaneous ruptures have also been seen but this is very rare. The current prostheses have evolved markedly in their manufacture, they are made with stronger outer layers and filled with cohesive gels. If a person has a prosthetic break, it is advisable to remove it as soon as possible and place new prostheses.

What type of anesthesia will I receive?

The ideal is to perform the surgery with anesthetic sedation (where the patient is asleep under induction). Always assisted by an anesthesiologist and in an authorized center.

Where will I put the prosthetics?

The most used routes are the peri-areolar, submammary and axillary. The choice of the surgical route will depend on the anatomy of your breasts and your areola.

Will you leave me drains?

They are not necessary.

What will I feel after surgery?

The postoperative period is very well tolerated, with moderate pain relievers. You should sit a few hours after surgery, if you don't, at night your back will hurt more than your breasts. It is normal to feel a burning sensation under your breasts as if you had done many abdominals. It is alleviated by placing cold packs.

Do I stay hospitalized or do I go home?

Most of the patients stay in our center approximately 5 hours after surgery.

When can I take a bath?

The day after surgery.

Will I use compression girdles?

No, just anatomical bras.

When can I start working?

At approximately 72 hours.

When can I start doing gymnastics?

Walk on the treadmill gently at 48 hours. Strong gymnastics may start a month.

When can I breastfeed, does having a prosthesis influence?

The placement of prostheses does not influence breastfeeding. If you plan to have a family soon after the placement of a prosthesis, it is recommended that you have a family first and then have surgery.
