Breast Augmentation Plastic Surgery

shutterstock_82593991Breast augmentation is a major cosmetic surgery procedure involving surgical insertion of saline or silicone implants in the breast tissue with an aim to enhance breast size. Breast implant procedure currently ranks as the number one cosmetic surgery in the US, according to the ASPS figures. In some cases, breast implants may also be used as a part of breast reconstruction.

During the initial consultation, the surgeon will educate the patient about all aspects of breast augmentation surgery, and help them make an informed decision. The surgeon will create a customized plan for breast enhancement to create more proportionate and attractive breast appearance.

Judicious ABPS board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Roger Tsai provides breast augmentation to patients in West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and other suburbs and neighborhoods across the horizon.

Choice of Implants

The choice of breast implants is a critical factor, which will have an impact on the final outcome of breast augmentation. Breast implants are available in traditional saline and advanced silicone gel type. Ultra cohesive silicone implants are also now approved by the FDA. Different sizes, profiles, shapes and textures are available in all types.

During the planning process for breast implant plastic surgery, Dr. Tsai will help the patient make the right choice of implants. He will assess various factors to ensure that the choice of implants is in sync with the patient’s overall health and aesthetic goals.

Choice of Surgical Technique

Breast implants can be placed in a subglandular or subpectoral position in the breasts, depending on the patient’s needs. As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Tsai will assess the thickness of the skin, subcutaneous tissue and breast glandular tissue to determine the optimal position of implants. The patient’s incision preferences, recovery concerns, and personal cosmetic goals will also be taken into account while making this decision.

Procedure

Breast implant surgery can be completed in about two hours, and most patients will be able to return home the same day. The procedure is usually performed with the patient under general anesthesia, or intravenous sedation in some cases. The procedure will begin with the surgeon placing a discreet incision either below the breast crease, or around the areola, or in the underarm.

A breast pocket to accommodate the implant will be carved through the incision. The implant may be placed above or below the pectoral muscle as decided during the treatment planning process. Once the implant is adjusted into its position, the surgeon will carefully close the incisions with sutures.

Recovery

Following breast augmentation, the patient will be confined to home for about one week. For the first three days, the patient should take plenty of rest, but may perform short walks and light activities at home from the second day. The precise downtime and overall recovery period can vary from one patient to another.

Most patients will be able to resume their normal routine or go to work in about 10 to 14 days. Dedicated and magnificent cosmetic surgeon Dr. Tsai receives patients from West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for breast augmentation.
