Who is a Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
Women who want to have a breast augmentation may have a number of reasons for undergoing this procedure. One of the biggest is for a boost in self-confidence. If women have breasts that are on the small side, then they may compare themselves unfavorably to others. Through breast augmentation, women can improve their cup size significantly, which allows them to feel better about themselves as they make their way through the day.
In some cases, women may notice that one breast is slightly smaller than the other. Breast augmentation can help with this. In fact, the best cosmetic surgeons are quite skilled in the matter, and individuals should be pleased with the results in the aftermath. Both breasts will be almost indistinguishable in size and shape, which should also help with self-esteem.
Breast augmentation can also assist with women who have problems with sagging. Surgeons can use cosmetic procedures so that the breasts can be retained higher on the chest. If women cite this as a reason for breast augmentation, surgeons can give them a quick overview of how the procedure will help. They may even be able to show them some digital images of what their body will look like after the operation.
Most women who are in generally good physical health will make excellent candidates for breast augmentation. They will likely be required to pass a basic physical examination, in which they will be checked out for any obvious abnormalities. Patients who are excessively overweight may be asked to lose a certain number of pounds before the breast augmentation surgery can be definitively scheduled.
Breast augmentation can increase a woman’s breast size as much as she wants. She can begin by looking at some model photos, which should provide a decent idea of what different sizes will look like. Breast augmentation photographs, or breast augmentation sketches, will usually be available for viewing on a computer or some other digital device.
Ultimately, breast augmentation operations can improve a woman’s life considerably. If she has been experiencing body confidence problems, these can be improved. The best breast augmentation surgeons will develop a comprehensive treatment program that should work wonders.
Recovery From Breast Augmentation Surgery
The recovery period after breast augmentation surgery is dependent on where the implants are placed in the breast. If the implants during the breast augmentation surgery are placed over the muscle, then the recovery period will be shorter than if they are placed under the muscle. The technique used by the surgeon performing the breast augmentation surgery also factors into the recovery period. Other factors that can vary the length of the recovery period include: body type, place of incision, weight and the type of implant used in the breast augmentation surgery.
During the recovery period after breast augmentation surgery, some women experience little or no pain. Other women will experience pain. Typically, implants from breast augmentation surgery placed under the muscle are more painful than those placed over the muscle. The stretching of the muscle within the breast is the main cause of the pain from implants placed under the muscle. The place of the incision can also determine the amount of pain a woman experiences.
The first few days after breast augmentation surgery, fatigue and soreness can be expected. Pain medication is usually prescribed to aid in the recovery from breast augmentation surgery. Tightness around the breast area is also normal. It may be necessary to wear a special bra after the surgery during the healing process. This is dependent on the type of breast augmentation surgery performed. Most women return to work within a few days of their beast augmentation surgery although it is not unusual to be off of work for longer.
During the next several weeks following breast augmentation surgery, it is necessary to avoid strenuous activity that requires the use of the arms and chest muscles. Swollen tissue and sensitivity to touch are to be expected during this time period. The doctor who performs the breast augmentation surgery will provide specialized recommendations to patients during this time period to aid in recovery. Each patient is different and each doctor is different, thus there is no standardized time line for recovery after breast augmentation.
Reason for Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation, also know as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breast. There are different types of implants used for the breast augmentation procedure; saline-filled and silicone gel-filled implants are the most common. Be sure to ask your doctor about the types of implants available for breast augmentation.
Breast augmentation can enhance one’s breast size and shape, resulting in a more proportional figure. Here are some reasons people consider the breast augmentation procedure:
- * To increase the breast size, for a number of reasons including the perception that one’s breast are too small;
- * To enhance the overall body contour, balance and proportions;
- * To achieve an enhanced appearance, size, projection, etc., following pregnancy and/or weight loss;
- * To restore appearance through reconstruction following breast surgery (i.e., mastectomy).
As with other cosmetic surgery procedures, the most appropriate candidates for breast augmentation surgery are those who are looking for improvement and not perfection. Additional factors such as being over eighteen years of age, possessing good physical and mental health, and being realistic in their expectations are additional considerations one should keep in mind while determining whether or not breast augmentation surgery is right for them.
Risks of Breast Augmentation Surgery
As a surgical procedure that Dr. Roudner has performed several times, Miami women can rest assured that safety measures are taken before breast augmentation is completed. Though Dr. Roudner takes precautionary steps to minimize risks, any woman considering the surgery needs to be aware of the potential risks associated with the breast augmentation procedure.
One major risk of breast augmentation is scarring. It is a surgical procedure that requires cutting into the body to place the silicone or saline product. Though Dr. Roudner takes measures to minimize scarring and many patients will not have scars, every individual body is different and some women might see scarring after the breast augmentation heals.
Bleeding can also occur in some women after the breast augmentation surgery is completed. This risk is minimal because Dr. Roudner will take measures to ensure bleeding is stopped. Women who are taking blood thinning medications are particularly at risk and should inform Dr. Roudner before the procedure begins to ensure safety while undergoing breast augmentation.
One of the most common risks of breast augmentation Miami women should consider is infection. Like any other surgical procedure, infections are a potential complication during the healing process. Dr. Roudner will provide all of his Miami patients with appropriate antibiotics to help minimize the risk and will take measures to counter infection if it develops according to the needs of the patient.
In some cases, breast augmentation might result in leakage. If the envelope breaks, which can occur at any time after the surgery is completed, it can cause pain, swelling and hardening of breast tissues. Surgical removal of the augmentation material will improve the situation and prevent further complications. Dr. Roudner uses only the best products to help minimize this risk and suggests that all Miami women replace the breast augmentation every seven to ten years to help keep the risk of leakage low.
Breast augmentation performed by Dr. Roudner is as safe as a surgical procedure is possible to become. While Miami women might worry about the complications, Dr. Roudner will explain all of the measures taken to minimize the risks. Breast augmentation can have numerous benefits and is often worth the minimal risks when women see the final results.
