Breasts are the center of grace, a milestone of feminine development, and pivotal in female appearance. That is why having fuller, larger, and proportioned busts are the top beauty goal of many women. To cater to this desirability of women, breast implants procedures have seen a considerable surge in the past few years.
Breast Implant Augmentation not only enhances your busts profile, but it also allows women to feel more feminine. Many women opt for breast implants to reduce the effect of gravity and aging. Regardless of your reasons, breast implants procedures are designed to restore and enhance the shape, contour, and curve of your female physique.
However, it is critical to note that the breast implant is a major procedure and requires thorough considerations before the surgery. Although the possible complications and risks can be significantly reduced in the hands of a reliable plastic surgeon. At Body by Katzen, you will benefit Dr. Katzen’s experience and breast implant expertise. Dr. Katzen is a renowned plastic surgeon. Dr. Katzen will carefully guide you through the entire procedure and will build your understanding regarding the possible risks of the procedure.
Preparing for the Breast Implant
Breast implants are one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed today. Therefore, plastic surgeons recommend some lifestyle changes to accelerate the recovery process and achieve the ideal results. These changes will help your breast muscles and tissue to heal faster and attain more natural-looking breasts.
Here we have given a few tips to help you prepare for the breasts implant surgery:
Bigger is not always better
Who doesn’t want to have the fuller and larger breasts, but bigger breasts might lend some repercussions. The larger the breast implant, the more stretched your breast tissues will be. This might result in widening, rippling, or worse sagging or drooping of your breasts. Ideally, you should consider the natural size and shape of the breasts, the one that accentuates your physique and eliminates the risk of undesired results.
Go for silicone breast implants
Cohesive gel silicone is an incredibly popular option among women who want natural-looking breasts. These gel or gummy bear breast implants offer the shape and feel of your natural breasts.
Round breast implants are more reliable than anatomic breast implants
Anatomical breast implants, also known as the teardrop breast implant, are placed to help achieve and accentuate the natural shape of your breasts. However, all implants spin inside the breast. If round breast implants spin, there is no problem. If anatomic breast implants spin, your breast implant winds up sideways. Not good.
Don’t overlook the submuscular placement
Dr. Katzen might recommend submuscular placement to reach natural-looking breasts. However, this comes with the downside a longer and more uncomfortable recovery time.
Dr. Katzen’s approach to Breast implants
If you want more cleavage and a less natural look, Dr. Katzen suggests placing the silicone breast implant above the muscle. If you are looking for more of a natural look and are not as concerned about cleavage, Dr.Katzen suggests placing the silicone breast implant underneath the muscle.
What to expect during your breast implant procedure?
Pre-operatively at Body by Katzen, we pay individual and keen attention to every patient. Before surgery Dr. J Timothy Katzen helps his patients select the appropriate size, shape and position of their chosen breast implant.
During the breast augmentation procedure general anesthesia is administered. The procedure proceeds as the following steps:
Before surgery Dr. Katzen and you will discuss the incision options and select one from the following options:
- Trans-axillary option, in the armpit
- Peri-areolar incision, around the nipple
- An inframammary incision, upper crease of the breasts.
The ideal incision selection is based on factors like the patient’s anatomy, type of implant, the enlargement involved, and the surgeon-patient preference.
Inserting and Placing the Implant
Once the incision is made, a pocket is created for the chosen implant to be inserted. Placements are of two types:
- A sub-mammary placement that goes over the pectoral muscle and behind the breast.
- A submuscular placement in which the implant is placed under the pectoral muscle. In this case, the recovery time is often longer and slightly more painful.
Closing the incisions
After the implants are perfectly placed, Dr. Katzen closes the incision sutures or stitches. Sometimes, Dr. Katzen will also use the skin adhesives, glue, or surgical tapes to seal the incisions.
Analyzing the results
Your breast augmentation will result in some swelling, but usually this fades away within two weeks. Your incision lines will also fade. After this period, the patient can assess the result to decide whether the procedure met their expectations or not.
Potential Risks and Complications
Every major or minor surgical procedure comes with some potential risks and complications. Some of the consequences linked to breast implants include:
- Fluid accumulation
- Sensation in the nipple and breast may temporarily change
- Leaking or rupturing of the implant
- Painful breasts
You may also experience hardening around the implant area, known as capsular contracture. As a result, the shape of your implant may change and cause pain. In some cases, the scars may also become thick, red, and painful. In either case, you might need further surgery.
