Size, Shape, Asymmetry, Weight Loss, Pregnancy, surgical interventions, may all be reasons why you want or it is recommended a breast augmentation.
Together we will discuss what are your motives what you expect from such a surgical intervention.
My goal is to provide the desired aesthetic appearance, to the extent that your goals are realistic and such intervention may not affect you in a negative way. Choosing the type of implant, type of procedure and the sequence of steps varies from patient to patient so that what you know from magazines, movies or your friends may or may not be true in your case. Therefore, a discussion with a breast surgery expert about breast augmentation should be, for you, the most important source of information.
Breast augmentation is a process rather than a simple surgical intervention. The first step is to find out and realize how a breast augmentation will affect your life. For that, will be definitely changes in your lifestyle, at least in the short term, you need to consider the unavailability of doing exercise, to work and not finally, the emotional impact.
For me, your patient status begins and the first consultation and ends only when you and I we are pleased about the obtained result .
What it is, in fact, breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation consists in inflating of the breasts through a surgical intervention using a breast implant, whitch is a medical device that contains silicone gel or saline solution. Each of these variants can be appropriate depending on the type of implant and the objectives of the surgery.
Breast implant may be placed above or below the muscle. Placing the implant above the muscle is mainly recommended when there is enough tissue in the breast area, such as people who have lost a lot of weight or after breastfeeding. When there is not enough breast tissue, the implant can be inserted under the muscle, this procedure is recommended to women who have almost flat chest or a small cup size who want to change 1-2 cup sizes.
How much can we increase the breast size?
From the medical standpoint, there are sufficient resources to make major changes, but they are not desired and I do not recommend them for various reasons. The most successful breast augmentations are those then we go to up one to two cup sizes. The aim of the breast augmentation surgery is to improve the aesthetic appearance of the woman, and this can be achieved with a moderate growth of the breasts.
There are many cases, some of them well publicized, that needed repeated augmentation or the size was exaggerated. In many of such cases, sooner or later, but more often sooner, the wrong decisions turn against patient’s wellbeing by back pain, major physical discomfort other health problems and last but not least the need for one or more reintervention. Therefore, the patient undergoes prolonged stress obtaining significantly lower results comparing with a successful primary breast augmentation.
Fortunately, today, modern technology allows us to do 3D simulations on the computer so that my patients can i can make a clear opinion of how it will look after operation and which are the body proportions.
There is also the posibility to have a period of time fake breasts, as a bustier or bra transformed so as to experience in daily life, how in perceived your new posture and how you emotionally accept this transformation.
Although these methods available, surely, together we will decide the best option for you to achieve the desired results.
An intervention with long lasting effects, but not necessarily for lifetime
As much as they refine techniques for the operation and quality of breast implants, we are talking, however , about a foreign body inserted into the body. Adverse effects may occur immediately after surgery or during time. On the other hand, the human body evolves, while aging, slimming or can take proportions. If in short-term we make sure everything goes well through repeated checks, for long-term is patient debt to regularly return to the doctor for an evaluation. Sometimes, due to the transformations that body undergoes, breast implants should be removed, changed or remodeled/reshaped skin.
Breast augmentation solve the whole problem?
Breast implants are designed to increase your breast size and give them roundness. Often, however, the desired firmness of the breasts is not obtained in witch case we can get better results by combining augmentation breast with other interventions on the breast such as breast lifting (mastopexy) or nipple repositioning.
Obviously, after a first evaluation and discussion about options available, we will decide which is the appropriate set of procedures and the steps of intervention.
