Detailed Information about a Breast Augmentation Surgery

What is a breast augmentation surgery?

A breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that is mainly meant enlarging one’s with the use of artificial breast implants made of silicon and saline being surgically placed under the breast skin. This is an invasive procedure done under general anaesthesia and which changes the course of your life, to keep it for the better it is important to involve acute research about how it works and choosing the right surgeon.

Why and who choose this procedure?

This is for breast enhancement opted by individuals who all are suffering emotional disturbances due to • Naturally Small Breasts medically called Micromastia
• Had deformed breasts due to pregnancy and breast feeding
• Had to remove their breasts due to breast cancer medically called Mastectomy
• Or had deformed breasts due to any accident or medical conditions.

Breast Augmentation surgery is not for everyone. It is widely advised that to have this surgery or any kind of surgery a fresher surgeon would not apply. The surgeon has to be strongly skilled in his craft and to prove it he has a long list of successful past patient’s testimony. The longer the better. And his name is recognised by major medical boards that makes him a boarded surgeon. And the right boarded surgeon will only perform this surgery after you have formally qualified with the due candidacy to have this surgery. This is all for safety and progress of this procedure

What does the candidacy include in this surgery?

The candidacy reguirements include that the patient has to be
• Accurate with a good reason for considering this surgery and is not under any influence or mental or emotional challenges.
• An adult most prominently between ages 23-40.
• Is not a smoker or at least is honestly willing to refrain from smoking for 6months prior and post the surgery
• Is physically and mentally matured and healthy and is not suffering from Asthma, Cancer, Leukemia or any such heart, lung, kidney or mental diseases.
These are the basic issues which apply for the candidacy; other prospects include medical examination of the patient’s current physical condition, the build of the breasts and the patient’s expectation.

The best ways to ensure a safe surgery:

Getting breast implants is an important, expensive decision that involves a number of factors that you should discuss with a board certified plastic surgeon.

Breast implant filler : saline or silicone
Breast implant size: how big should you go is a key question
Incision location : all plastic surgeons provide patients with a breast implant surgery plan which includes where they\’ll make an incision to insert the implant.
Breast implant placement : During surgery the doctors makes a space for the implants, or pocket, behind the breast tissue and above the muscle (sub-glandular) or behind both the breast tissue and the pectorals major muscle (sub-muscular).
The Rice Test- This involves placing measured amounts of Rice into a plastic bag and inserting it into your bra-you can do this at home and this test gives you the most accurate idea of how you will look with varying amount of Breast Implant volume-see link at end of article on how to do this test

Visit Manufacturer\’s websites where you will find before and after photos of breast augmentation of most all sizes in women of various shapes and sizes

Try different sizes Breast Implants in your bra at your doctor’s office-this is the least reliable method

Talk to friends who have had the operation and ask them to share their experience

Breast Augmentation Cost

The most expensive surgeon may or may not be the ideal surgeon for you. \”Lowball\” or discount pricing may often be an attempt to fill an empty O.R. schedule, which should be a concern. Or a very low price may not be the inclusive cost of surgery.

In my practice, the price for breast augmentation price is $7100.00 for Saline and $7900.00 for Silicone. This price includes all pre and post-operative visits, pain control pump, a body garment, board certified anesthesiologist, operating room charges etc.

When considering breast augmentation surgery, I believe that the most important question for a prospective patient to ask themselves is this: Am I seeking a natural-appearing result? If the answer is yes, then seek out a surgeon who has the same aesthetic sensibility that you have (and appropriate training and experience). And insist on seeing `before and after\’ photos. A lot of them.

I want for my patient\’s appearance to make others think \”Wow – what a great figure\”, not \”I wonder who her plastic surgeon is\”.

It is important to discuss the following with your plastic surgeon, and research yourself this information before selecting a plastic surgeon

1. Cohesive silicone gel vs. saline breast implants

2. How many cc\’s? – deciding on implant volume

3. Incision locations

4. Subpectoral vs. prepectoral implant position

5. Attention to detail in breast augmentation

6. Breast augmentation after pregnancy

7. Special considerations: asymmetry, tuberous/constricted breasts, etc

8. Recovery and downtime

9. Avoiding capsular contracture

10.Revisional breast augmentation surgery

Detailed information about each of the above items can be found on my website and on the website of other plastic surgeons that perform a great deal of breast augmentation surgery.

In order not have any surprises with the price of surgery, ask if there are additional potential changes for pre or post-operative visits, pain control devices, or garments. Be sure that there are no additional charges for office visits. There should never be a charge for an office visit if a patient has a concern. In fact, most plastic surgeons want to see you if you have a concern. Ask if the fee you have been given includes the O.R. staff, equipment and supplies including pain pumps, garments, and of course a board certified anesthesiologist.

Please do not make your decision on the plastic surgeon based on who has the lowest price without looking at the whole picture and taking your time researching to find the right plastic surgeon for you. Always, ask to see many, many photographs, speak to patients and ask your own physician about any plastic surgeon you are considering.
