Breast Augmentation in Tampa Florida : Enhancement, Enlargement, Breast Implants
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure where breast implants are used to increase the size of a woman’s breasts as well as improve their shape and contour. Women of all ages may benefit from breast augmentation surgery. Genetics, previous pregnancy, nursing and weight loss can all contribute to a lack of attractive breast volume. This can produce a less than desirable breast contour. Breast augmentation surgery can address these concerns. With its high patient satisfaction, breast augmentation is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries procedure performed in the United States.
An important decision that needs to be made prior to breast augmentation surgery is determining the type of breast implant to be used. There are two primary types of breast implants available, saline (similar to saltwater) and silicone. Today’s implants are backed by decades of research and development and are the safest implants yet. There are advantages and disadvantages to saline and silicone implants. All patients are different and a discussion with Dr. Fakhre will help determine which implant is best for you.
At New Tampa Plastic Surgery we are committed to helping you achieve the best possible outcome in your breast augmentation surgery!
Reasons for Considering Breast Augmentation in Tampa:
The lack of attractive fullness in the breasts
A desire to improve the contour of the breasts
To restore volume lost after nursing and pregnancy
Asymmetry or differences between the right and left breast volumes
The Breast Augmentation Procedure
Breast augmentation surgery may be carried out with a small incision in one of three main areas. The first and most common is an incision that is very well concealed in the breast crease. Other options include making an incision at the lower margin of the nipple or in the patient’s armpit. Dr. Fakhre will help decide which approach is best for you based on your breast exam. Once the incision is made, the pocket that will accommodate the implant is created. In most cases, the pocket is made beneath the pectoralis major muscle. In select patients the pocket may be made above the muscle. Once the pocket is adequately developed, the selected implants are then placed in each pocket. The incision is then closed in layers using absorbable sutures.
Breast augmentation surgery is performed on an outpatient basis with the patient returning home later the same day. The procedure is usually done under general anesthesia and typically lasts anywhere from one to two hours.
Recovery following Breast Augmentation
After surgery you should plan on lots of rest and limited movement so as to speed up the healing process and recovery time. Immediately after surgery your breasts will be wrapped with a special bandage that will help keep the breasts in the correct position. Dr. Fakhre will let you know when to remove these bandages and begin wearing a compressive sports bra. This bra should be worn for several weeks after surgery. Additional patient specific instructions will be given to you following surgery.
Patients often have pain following the surgery, particularly when implants are placed behind the muscle. This pain is generally well controlled with oral pain medications. Complications following breast augmentation surgery are rare, but may occur. Carefully following Dr. Fakhre's postoperative instructions will help minimize this risk.
