In modern society, there are special requirements for female beauty. Therefore, many of the fair sex, whom nature has deprived of the "ideal couple" and who have lost their former forms due to breastfeeding, seek to gain beauty through plastic surgery.

In the modern world, it is one of the most popular operations in aesthetic breast surgery. The breast is enlarged or restored in size through the installation of implants. Implants are divided into two classes. Round implants create a push-up breast shape. Anatomical implants are tear-shaped and look as natural as possible. Breast augmentation allows women to increase their self-esteem by achieving the desired body proportions. It is after the operation that many women improve their personal lives, since breast augmentation gives them self-confidence, has not only physiological, but also psychological effects.

The breasts can seriously lose their shape, sag, which reduces the attractiveness of a woman, negatively affects her self-esteem. A plastic surgeon with the help of a lift removes excess skin, returns the breast to its previous or even more beautiful shape.
3. Breast reduction. This operation is chosen by women with too large breasts, which gives them uncomfortable sensations associated with heaviness and back pain. In the event of a surgeon's intervention, the size of the breast is reduced to the desired size, after which the breast is tightened.
All of these operations are performed under general anesthesia and last approximately 30 minutes to 1.5 hours. The longest operation - breast reduction - takes about one and a half to two hours, breast lift - an hour, breast augmentation, on average, can be performed in half an hour. Basic rehabilitation lasts about a month. During this time, the patient must wear a special compression garment. If there were no complications, then after a month the restrictions are almost completely removed, and after two months the woman can live the same life, forgetting that she had such an operation. There are also some recommendations - for example, doctors advise getting pregnant only after three months after the operation.
