Sem estresse: confira 5 cuidados pós-operatórios na cirurgia de próteses mamárias!

A colocação de próteses de silicone nas mamas é uma cirurgia plástica muito procurada, independentemente da idade da mulher.

Esse número demonstra o quanto a cirurgia de implante de silicone é segura. É um procedimento com baixo índice de complicações e a paciente pode, em muitos casos, voltar para casa no mesmo dia em que ela é feita, de acordo com o tipo de anestesia utilizado e a recomendação do cirurgião plástico.

About one out of eight women in the US is diagnosed with breast cancer and the rate increases over time.

The problem becomes more serious when many women don’t realize that they already have cancer and fighting it becomes harder. In order to attack cancer on time is recommended to perform breast self exams once a month and also mammograms once a year. Now, what happens when we have breast implants?

Bra Size: The eternal conflict!

Most women love shopping! In my case, if there’s one thing I would rather avoid is buying bras.

If it was as easy as choosing from 3 different sizes, life would be much less complicated, but instead we find so many sizes and different options to choose, whether it’s a half cup, push-up, padded, unpadded, lace, supportive, and the size variation between brands and styles is amazing.

In fact, recent studies determined that up to 80% of women around the world are wearing the wrong bra size, me included!

So lets’ face it, it is a bit frustrating to know that many of us even have different bra sizes in our own wardrobe without really knowing which one should be the correct size.

If your scenario is similar to mine, I encourage you to continue reading.

The other day I discovered a website called in which you only have to enter the measurements of your torso and the website automatically provides you with your correct bra size. I even tried it myself! With a measuring tape I entered the “below”, the “bust” and the “above” size, resulting in a 32C American size, or a 70D European size.

I know when skepticism reaches the highest levels, you don’t really think an automated tool will give you the correct answer. I even visited further the nearest lingerie store and tried on about 5 different types of bras. Result: all of them fit perfectly!

I really suggest you to try it and share with us your experience. At least I feel knowing the correct bra size can help us make easier our next shopping experience. Instead of deciding on the bra size, think about which one you like the most at a store or online!

Most common breast implants myths answered

1. All breast augmentations look fake.

Not true. If the implant chosen by you and your surgeon fits your body and tissues, the breast augmentation should provide you a nice natural appearing result.
You and your surgeon need to have an active communication, in which you would have to explain as much as possible (even with pictures) your desired look, and your surgeon would need to measure, consider your height, frame, tissue in order to recommend you with a breast implant size that will give you a natural semblance. In the other hand, there are some women who don’t necessarily want to acquire real appearance but for the ones of you, who are looking to obtain it, let me tell you it’s possible. Not forget to mention your surgeon selection is quite important. Don’t be afraid to ask about his/her experience and even diplomas.

2. You cannot breastfeed with breast implants.

Not true. Implants are positioned either beneath the pectoralis major muscle or the beneath the breast gland. In neither of the placements will damage the milk production gland nor the milk ducts. So you have nothing to be afraid.

What size of breast implant should you choose?

Take a Peek

If you are considering breast implants we assume you have been checking different pictures of many women with the ideal breast size you want. If not, this should be your first step to come up with your implant size.
Before you start on that, let’s make something clear here. You need to browse pictures of women who are similar to your physical frame. If your height is 5’8″ you cannot expect you are going to look like a woman whose height is 5’2, so please make sure you are referring to women images that are similar to you. What can be big for a woman can be too small for another.

Internet has a lot of before and after pictures where you can see some different results. Remember the more images you see, the better idea you get on the size.
