09 Aug Plastic surgery, mastopexy and medical translation
Plastic surgery is a field of healthcare that is not always included in the heathcare system, however people not only want to have better health, but also look better or look as they want to look. Therefore plastic surgery represents a huge market worldwide and even in the cases when it is not related to accidents or sickness, medical translation applies to medical documents, procedures and medical devices used in this sector.
One of the most extended types of plastic surgeries is the breast lift surgery or mastopexy. Why? The reason is that after pregnancy and lactation, or simply with age, the natural breast may get flaccid. The reasons are diverse, changes in size, distension of the skin, the aging process or distension of the tissues, among others. Mastopexy does not require any type of prosthesis. The operation consists on the repositioning of the mammary gland and eliminating the excess of skin.

However, sometimes patients may want to take advantage of the breast lift operation to also give volume. In this case, the choice of prostheses must take into account that they are added to the mammary gland itself. The intervention is performed under general anesthesia, in hospitals or clinics and it usually lasts between 1 and 3 hours.
Aesthetic surgery related innovations have a world-wide audience. Each new pharmaceutical product, new medical product or new innovation in this discipline has a very profitable global market. In this sense, products and services require medicine translations as regards, user’s manuals, packaging, labels, instructions for use, regulatory documents, service manuals or marketing materials. Or even medical devices, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, when applicable.

Mastopexy is not complicated operations, nor painful; although, as in any postoperative, patients will feel discomfort that may last a few weeks. Results are usually good, rejuvenating the breast and neckline, which usually affects the improvement of the patient’s self-esteem. They can be clearly noticed in 2 to 4 months. Scars improve, becoming less visible, within a year or year and a half, but it should be clear that it is not possible to have an operation without leaving scars. They are usually located around the areola, vertically, in a “T” form.
The most common prostheses due to their natural result are the round ones with medium projection, but beauty is subjective and each one has his or her taste. But in case of volume increase, although the prosthesis does not have an expiration date, its estimated duration ranges between 15 and 25 years.

And currying weight should be avoided at least, for a month.
The world of aesthetic medicine has its own paramount value. It is not easy to prepare medical reports, treat the patients, handle the instruments and prescribe medicines at the same time. These are slight things that are very important and come with great liability, as they can affect the patient’s health.
