Breast Augmentation in Kenya. Does Davinci Medical Group provide breast augmentation services in Kenya? Why is it done? What are the risks involved and what should you do to prepare?
Where can Breast augmentation, sometimes referred to as a “breast aug” or “boob job” by patients, involves using breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of your breasts. This procedure can also restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy, achieve a more rounded breast shape or improve natural breast size asymmetry.
Breast augmentation might help you to achieve the following:
Breast augmentation poses various risks, including:
Correcting these complications might require more surgery, either to remove or replace the implants.
If you are looking to perform a breast augmentation in Kenya, you are first advised to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon at Davinci Medical Group. Our doctors will guide you about your preferences for size, feel and appearance of your breasts. The surgeon will describe specific types of implants — smooth or textured, round or shaped like a teardrop, saline or silicone — as well as options for surgical techniques.
Carefully review written information, such as the patient information from the manufacturer of the implant you’ll be getting, and keep copies for your records.
Before you decide to have surgery, consider the following:
You might need a baseline mammogram before your surgery. Your doctor might adjust certain medications before the surgery as well. For example, it’s important to avoid aspirin or other medications that can increase bleeding. If you smoke, our surgeon will ask you to stop smoking for some time before the surgery.
Arrange for someone to drive you home after the surgery and to stay with you for at least the first night.
Soreness and swelling are likely to occur for a few weeks after surgery. Bruising is possible, too. Expect scars to fade over time but not disappear completely.
While you’re healing, it might help to wear a compression bandage or sports bra for extra support and positioning of the breast implants. Your surgeon might prescribe pain medication as well.
Follow our surgeon’s instructions about returning to regular activities. If you don’t have a physically demanding job, you might be able to return to work within a few weeks. Avoid strenuous activities — anything that could raise your pulse or blood pressure — for at least two weeks. While you’re healing, remember that your breasts will be sensitive to physical contact or jarring movements.
If you notice warmth and redness in your breast or you run a fever, you might have an infection. Contact us as soon as possible. Also reach out to us if you have shortness of breath or chest pain.
