Mastoplasty in Local Anaesthesia

Why do you use anthropometry before surgery?

Anthropometrical analysis is the starting point for surgical planning because it helps me to choose the volume and shape of the prostheses, correlating the mammary region to standardised models.


Is local anaesthesia a painful procedure?

CRYOCAPS are placed over the points where infiltration will be carried out, in order to avoid pain from the needle.
Subcutaneous infiltration is painless, thanks to the pH of the solution, which is compatible with body tissues.

What kinds of mammary implant are used?

Both saline and silicone gel mammary implants can be used.


Where is the implant placed?

The implant is placed below the breast tissue and above the muscular fascia. Subpectoral placement may be chosen in patients with very thin subcutaneous tissue, where more camouflage of the implant is needed.
