Breast Augmentation in Los Angeles, Orange County and San Francisco
As with any plastic surgery procedure, women who choose to undergo breast augmentation may face some rare complications. While the FDA approves all breast implants used in the United States, certain complications can alter the appearance of your breast or result in an unnatural look or feel.
OPTIONS FOR BREAST ENHANCEMENT
There are several different FDA approved implant types and incision techniques for women to choose from. During your consultation, one of our trained Los Angeles plastic surgeons will help you find the right breast implant type, incision, and placement based on your unique figure and expectations.
CHOOSING YOUR BREAST IMPLANTS: SILICONE OR SALINE?
One of the first choices that you will have to make for your breast augmentation is whether you want silicone or saline breast implants. The implant that is best for you will depend on your body type, amount of existing breast tissue, as well as your goal look and reasons for undergoing surgery. What may work best for one woman may not be the ideal solution for you, so it is important that we discuss your surgery in detail to make the best determination for your implants.
At Wave Plastic Surgery, we offer women the choice of Natrelle® gummy bear silicone implants or saline-filled implants. The newer gummy bear implants, nicknamed for their cohesive, leakproof structure, have been said to provide for a more natural look and feel. Women who desire a rounder or shapelier look may be better suited for saline implants. Both have been approved by the FDA and have a long track record of safety and beautiful results.
HOW WE PERFORM THE BREAST AUGMENTATION PROCEDURE
There will be many components of your breast augmentation surgery that can be customized depending on your own unique case. Factors such as breast implant type, incision location, and implant placement will all be discussed and decided during your consultation with one of our doctors.
When you come in for your surgery, you will be put under a general anesthesia. We will then proceed to make a discreet incision, either in the crease under your breast, around the areola, or beneath your arm. Silicone implants will be placed pre-filled either above or below the pectoral muscle, whereas saline implants are placed empty and then filled once they have been set.
Once your breast implant is placed within the created pocket, your incisions are closed and any necessary surgical dressings are placed. After breast augmentation, it is possible to return to work within just a few days to a week, depending on the type of activity that is required at your job. Special surgical techniques and post-operative care instructions will be given to minimize complications like bleeding, asymmetry, infections, and capsular contractures. At Wave Plastic Surgery, we provide a special protocol to further minimize capsular contracture – an unnatural hardening of the breast due to post-surgical development of scar tissue.
