What Is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation can improve both volume and shape of your breasts. This can replace what has been lost or improve what you currently have. We work with you to help define your goals and achieve them.
Who Makes a Good Candidate?
If one does not have any major health complications, lives a healthy lifestyle, and is a non-smoker then the chances of being a good candidate rise. However, a consultation will need to be done to ensure you are a viable candidate.
What are the Advantages of Having the Procedure Here?
Having the procedure done close to home has several advantages. First, if there are any concerns they can be addressed immediately by our team. Second, we will monitor how you are doing following the procedure. Also, we know you. We have full access to your files and have worked with you through the consultations and procedure, and we are committed to help you both before and after the procedure.
What Incisions are Made?
There are three incisions that are commonly used: the border of the areola, the underarm area and at the crease at the bottom of the breast. Although we can use any of these incisions, most breast augmentations are done with the incision below the breast crease. Great care is taken to ensure that both the size and the location of the incision is exact. Also, the entire process of scar care is delivered.
What Type of Anaesthetic do you Recommend and What are the Risks?
Although breast augmentation can be performed under a number of different types of anaesthetics, we typically perform breast augmentation under a general anaesthetic. This general anaesthetic is very effective, and works quickly to put the patient to sleep. Our clinic has highly skilled anesthesiologists. Anaesthesia proposes almost no risk of complications to a healthy individual.
Will I be Able to Breastfeed After Breast Augmentation?
Breast implants will not limit your ability to breastfeed. Also, research has shown that breast augmentation does not pose any harm to your baby when breast-feeding. However, with the volume changes to your breasts during breastfeeding, you may require a breast lift .
What is the Ideal Implant?
The ideal implant is different for each patient. Silicone implants create the closest replica of a real breast. Saline implants can have skin rippling, and are usually a less popular choice. Silicone implants that are made anatomically usually have less cleavage. Once you determine what look you desire the right implant will be designed for you.
Where Should I Put the Implants?
Plastic surgeons initially began placing implants below the muscle because the sentiment was that it would reduce the risk of capsular contracture. Capsular contracture occurs when the tissue surrounding the breast implant starts to contract. This only happens to 1% of women who have had the procedure. A potential negative aspect of an implant below the muscle is the pectoral muscles naturally flex and move the implant. This is known as “animation deformity”. This will occur, to some extent, to anybody who chooses to place the implant below the muscle.
Both implant locations are safe. If the implant is placed above the muscle then it will result in a greater contour to the breast. Some women lack the necessary tissue to cover an implant and therefore it is necessary to place it below the muscle.
Timberlea Services Centre offers a wide variety of procedures. We strongly suggest you book an initial consult with Dr Anzarut to discuss what your goals are. He will review all of your options with you and answer any questions or concerns that you might have. You can call our office or request a consultation online.
