28 Jan Breast Implants and Breast Augmentation Require a Highly Skilled Plastic Surgeon
Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery that increases the size of the breasts with breast implants. It’s one of the specialty procedures at John Park MD Plastic Surgery where women trust the highly-skilled Dr. John Park with gorgeous, natural-looking, and lasting results. Breast implants can be placed either on top of the chest tissue or below it, and that’s just one of the many factors when considering this procedure.
There are various types of breast implants, with silicone and saline being the most common. Of course, there are also different sizes and shapes of breast implants. Breast augmentation is a very personalized procedure, and you deserve to work with a certified doctor who you trust. Breast augmentation is a means of feeling more confident for a lot of women, while for others it’s an avenue to rebuild the breast following a number of conditions.
No matter the reason for your interest in breast augmentation in Newport Beach, a great journey starts with finding the perfect plastic surgeon.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation
The most common reason women opt for breast augmentation is to increase the size of their breasts. Asymmetry is another reason for breast augmentation, as it’s very normal to have asymmetrical breasts. If this is the case, know that breast augmentation can immediately give you the results you want and deserve. Beautiful results can dramatically increase confidence and help you look your best in whatever you want to wear.
Today’s breast augmentation procedures ensure results that look natural with minimal scarring (and the post-operative signs of incisions are easily hidden in the natural crease of the breast). However, it’s critical that you find a doctor who specializes in breast augmentation for the best results and a great experience. This starts with a complimentary consultation, which is always available to patients at John Park MD Plastic Surgery.
Getting Ready for Breast Augmentation
During your consultation, you’ll be able to see a much larger gallery of before-and-after photos than what’s available on your doctor’s website. The surgeon will discuss the types of implants, including smooth and textured, as well as the shape ranging from teardrop to round. Options for surgical techniques will depend on your body and the kind of breast implant being used.
It’s important to bring in a written list of all of your questions to the consultation. Your surgeon will also provide you with written information to review at home, including data on the manufacturer of the implants. Once you’ve selected the best surgeon for you, it’s time to get ready for the big day. Your doctor will provide you with a comprehensive list of ways to prepare, and it can vary a little person to person.
Keep in mind that breast implants alone will not address excess skin in the breast area. It’s common for some women to combine a breast lift with breast implants. Removing excess skin provides lift but does not increase size or enhance breast shape, but both a breast lift and breast implants can achieve perkier, fuller, enhanced breasts. Your doctor will discuss this with you during your consultation.
Preparation For Breast Augmentation
It’s recommended for many women to get a baseline mammogram prior to surgery. Although you can (and should) get a mammogram after breast implants, depending on your age and any risk factors, it’s sometimes a good idea to get a mammogram for future comparisons immediately before surgery. Having breast implants means future mammograms will require specialized views, but you’ll always be able to get complete and correct mammogram results down the road.
If you smoke, you will need to stop for about one month prior to surgery (your doctor will tell you the exact timeframe). You will also need to arrange for someone to drive you home after surgery and to stay with you for at least one night. Surrounding yourself with a supportive network, which includes your surgeon, is the key to a good experience.
