Breast augmentation has emerged as an extremely popular plastic surgery procedure around the world. In the U.S., it still remains the most sought-after surgical procedure. There are many women who are unhappy with the size, projection, and symmetry of their breasts. A breast augmentation in Troy, MI, is an ideal way to address these issues.
Your Breast Augmentation Options
A breast augmentation procedure involves the placement of prosthetic breast implants in order to enhance the breasts’ appearance. Implants come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures. It’s important to understand your breast implant options as thoroughly as possible, since each type of implant comes with its own set of benefits.
Patients can choose between silicone and saline breast implants. Saline implants can be inserted before being filled, unlike silicone implants. This allows the surgeon to adjust the size gently during the procedure to offer a perfect fit. Silicone implants, however, are a common choice because they look and feel very natural.
Gummy bear implants are a specialized type of cohesive silicone breast implant. These implants are very popular and quite safe. They are often called form-stable implants, because whenever there is a rupture, they maintain their form rather than collapsing. The cohesive nature of the material also means that ruptures do not lead to leaks.
Along with implant type, you will need to decide between teardrop (anatomical) and round implants and between textured and smooth implants. The profile of an implant can also vary.
Along with the characteristics of the implant itself, you will also need to choose between sub-glandular and sub-muscular breast implant placement. To find out more about your options, it is best to arrange a consultation.
Your Breast Augmentation Consultation
During your consultation with your surgeon, you will inform him about your expectations and goals regarding the breast augmentation procedure. This will help him align the surgery with your expectations.
Your surgeon will perform an examination and will go over your full medical history, including past procedures and pre-existing conditions. This will allow him to avoid any potential complications.
Your surgeon will tell you exactly how the procedure will be performed. Details like preparation and aftercare will be discussed, and you are encouraged to ask questions.
Before the surgery, you will be asked to stop smoking and to stop taking any non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
At the start of a breast augmentation with implants, anesthesia will be administered. Next, an incision will be created. This may be made within the underarm (transaxillary), in the breast crease (inframammary), or around the areola (periareolar). A pocket will be made in the tissues to house the implant. Next, the implant will be passed through the incision into the tissue pocket. Finally, the incision will be closed with stitches. This process will then be repeated for the other breast.
What Is Breast Augmentation Recovery Like?
Most patients fully recover within six weeks. However, every human body is unique, and so the recovery timeline will vary from case to case. The best person to assess the timeline is your surgeon.
The first five to seven days are a period of bed rest. Temporary discomfort, pain, bruising, and swelling are common. Pain medication will be prescribed, and cold compresses can aid in swelling reduction.
At least three weeks are required to ease back into a daily routine. The patient is advised to only wear very soft bras without underwire. Underwire bras should be worn only after all post-surgery healing is complete.
The patient will require time off from work. A follow-up appointment with the surgeon will be necessary to check on the status of the healing process.
Breast Augmentation Cost
When determining the cost of breast augmentation surgery, factors like the price of the chosen implant and total surgical time are considered. Additional factors that may impact pricing include surgical techniques and anesthesia fees.
