On the Fence About Breast Augmentation?

Did you know that breast augmentation ranks as the most popular cosmetic surgery in the United States year-after-year? It is also “one of the most patient-satisfied procedures in the cosmetic surgery industry.”
If you are trying to decide whether you want to go through with breast augmentation in San Diego, consider some of the following facts.

Reasons to Consider Breast Augmentation

Dr. Talebzadeh of Eastlake Cosmetic Surgery tells all of his patients who are considering breast augmentation in San Diego that “breast implants should not be used as a means to improve your overall life or to make bad relationships better. Women should only consider breast augmentation for themselves.”
There are many issues that can be addressed by breast augmentation. These include:
• Small breasts
• Asymmetrical breasts (one smaller than the other)
• Changes in breast size/ shape after weight Loss, pregnancy, or surgery
• Reconstruction after mastectomy
• Cosmetic improvements following breast reconstruction

Breast Augmentation Consultation

After you schedule your consultation, your surgeon will meet with you one-on-one to discuss your candidacy for breast augmentation in San Diego. He will ask you questions about your ideal aesthetic; your preferences regarding incision type, implant type, and anesthesia; and craft a personalized plan for your procedure. At the consultation you surgeon will also:
• Perform an examination
• Take “Before” photos
• Review your medial history
• Educate you about every step of the procedure
• Give you time to ask all of your questions

Types of Incisions

Inframammary Incision

This is the most precise incision that can be used. Since the incision is placed near the breast crease, the scar can be easily hidden by the breast itself and by a bra.

Transaxillary Incision

This incision is placed in the underarm, and the scar blends discreetly with the armpit crease.

Periareolar Incision

This incision is made around the edge of the areola. The periareolar incision type can also be used to lift the nipple and the areola.

Types of Implants

There are several factors to consider when selecting the implant type. These include implant:
• Size
• Shape
• Composition
• Placement
Breast implants are made of durable silicone shells. They can be filled with either silicone gel or saline solution. Dr. Talebzadeh can discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each.
Breast implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes so your breast augmentation in San Diego can be customized to your particular body as well as your personal preferences.
Just keep in mind that your options may be limited by your:
• Breast tissue
• Anatomy
• Skin elasticity
• Body type
The goals of the procedure are to enhance shape, volume, and size. It takes about two hours to perform.

Breast Augmentation Recovery

Immediately after the procedure, you will require a ride home. Dr. Talebzadeh will schedule several post-operative appointments to monitor your recovery. Your new breasts will take approximately three to six months to settle after the procedure. You will be asked to wear a surgical bra for two to four weeks post-op.
Any strenuous activity, such as exercise, should be completely avoided for three weeks after surgery. After that period, you can begin to ease back into your normal routine.
All of your scars from surgery will fade with time and proper care. Strategic placement of incision also helps lessen the appearance of scars.
