Instead of having to look in the mirror or feel self-conscious about appearance, people can alter their appearance to one they prefer.
Breast augmentation is one such surgical procedure that allows patients to enhance their breast size. We can help patients customize the size of their breasts with a professional medical service.
Breast augmentation is a standard procedure offered at Optimal Plastic Surgery.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Most people refer to breast augmentation as a boob job but medically speaking, breast augmentation is much more than that. Benefits of breast augmentation can include:
One of the main benefits of choosing to go through a breast augmentation procedure is that it can help boost the patient's confidence in their appearance. This way, patients will feel more confident with their appearance at home and in public.
Women may also request to alter the size of uneven breasts in order to balance them out. Along with appearance, this can help avoid challenges when wearing certain types of clothing. As a plastic surgeon, we can use breast augmentation to alter the size of one or both breasts as the patient prefers. This includes enhancing each breast to different amounts.
Following pregnancy, there are a variety of changes a woman's body goes through physically, mentally and hormonally. Due to this, there are inevitable changes that will occur naturally and alter appearance. One such change is the possibility of losing the size and shape the breasts had before the pregnancy.
We can use breast augmentation to correct, restore and enhance the size of the breasts following pregnancy.
Understanding the breast augmentation Process
Breast augmentation is a surgery that increases a person’s breast size. Some medical professionals also refer to the procedure as augmentation mammoplasty. We can increase the patient's breast size using breast implants containing silicone or saline.
With saline breast implants, we will into the breasts empty before filling them with sterile saltwater. Patients prefer these since they are water-based and can feel more natural to the body.
Silicone breast implants are pre-filled with a silicone gel that is also sterile. When we place silicone implants, the incision site may be on the larger side since they are pre-filled.
During the Procedure
Before we begin the procedure, we will determine the specific size the patient is comfortable with while also ensuring the patient is healthy enough for this type of procedure. Once we conduct an overall health examination of the patient and decide on the specific size of breast augmentation they want, we will then go over the procedure with the patient.
During a breast augmentation, our plastic surgeon will go in and place breast implants beneath the breast tissue or chest muscles. The incision site tends to be small since the implants squish down, which is seen as advantageous for recovery purposes.
There are actually three different ways that a breast augmentation can be performed. The first is the most traditional and the implant is placed underneath the breast where the crease lies. The second option is under the arm, in the armpit area, which is popular since the scarring is not visible on the breast area. The last option that has grown in popularity is putting the breast implant in through the outer nipple area.
Necessary follow-up Care
We will review the specific follow-up care the patients need to remember and adhere to in order to further recovery. Follow-up care for breast augmentation can include:
It is extremely necessary to rest and take it easy once a breast augmentation is complete. Avoiding physical activity is important for the implants and incision sites to heal.
The cosmetic or plastic surgeon will likely prescribe a pain medication to help with the initial pain but typically, the pain is pretty manageable. Over-the-counter medications are recommended as well as cold compresses to help bring down inflammation and swelling.
Visit us for a Check-Up
One of the most important parts of follow-up care is to visit the plastic surgeon. We will be able to check the wounds to make sure that they are healing properly. This is important in case any abnormalities arise.
