NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL AND SHAPELIER BREASTS
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular procedures sought by those who desire fuller, shapelier breasts or to correct disproportionate or unevenly sized breasts. Typically a breast implant is used to enhance volume and shape using a saline or silicone implant and is an outpatient procedure that takes about one hour to complete.
Breast implants can be either silicone-filled or saline-filled. The shell can be smooth or textured and the shape round or teardrop. There are several advantages and disadvantages of implant type, texture, and shape. Dr. Deigni will help guide you in this decision process during the consultation.
In addition to enhancing the size, shape and volume of the chest, patients enjoy increased cleavage, and often some degree of breast lift in the presence of mild breast ptosis or sagging can be achieved. Clothing fits better and women tend to experience higher self-esteem. There is no negative impact on breastfeeding.
In the face of extreme ptosis or droopiness, a surgical breast lift may need to be performed at the same time. This procedure is a breast augmentation with mastopexy or breast lift, and Dr. Deigni may recommend it after thorough examination at the initial consultations. He will discuss the pros and cons with you should both procedures be recommended for the best aesthetic results.
Breast augmentation surgery is most often an outpatient procedure done under general anesthesia. An implant is inserted under the pec muscle (submuscular) usually through an inframammary fold (IMF) incision. There are several factors that may influence placing the implant below or above the pec muscle. These decisions will be made at the time of consultation once a thorough history and physical examination has been obtained.
Following the procedure, patients are placed in a soft bra with no underwire in order to help support the breasts. Patients may feel tightness in their muscle and skin for a few weeks as they adjust to the breast implants. The implants typically take six to eight weeks for the muscle to relax and the tissue to adapt for them to settle into a relaxed, natural position.
Dr. Deigni uses the best implants available and you will be given information, including the manufacturer’s serial number and warranty.
