Who Is a Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
If you are in good general health, you are most likely an excellent candidate for this procedure. Dr. Sundine will carefully evaluate your breast anatomy, including tissue availability, to help you decide if breast surgery is right for you. He will also recommend the appropriate types of implants after discussing your aesthetic goals and safety concerns.
Dr. Sundine offers both silicone and saline breast implants. Silicone implants are filled with gel and tend to feel more natural to the touch. Saline implants are filled with a saltwater solution, and are believed to be safer in case of a rupture.
Dr. Sundine also uses various incision types to place the implants, including:
- Inframammary (crease incision)
- Periareolar incision (nipple incision)
- Transaxillary (armpit incision)
The Breast Augmentation Procedure
Breast augmentation surgery is performed under general anesthesia, which means you will be asleep during surgery. Dr. Sundine starts the procedure by making incisions, the location of which is decided prior to surgery. He then makes a pocket in each breast to make room for the implant. Breast implants can be placed under the chest muscle, over the chest muscle or partially under the chest muscle. The placement will also be determined prior to the procedure. The saline or silicone implants are then placed in each breast pocket and the incisions are closed with sutures.
Recovering from Breast Augmentation Surgery
Upon waking up from breast surgery, you will feel soreness in the treatment area and drowsiness from the anesthesia. You will be kept in a recovery room for a few hours, during which time Dr. Sundine’s staff will closely monitor you. You will be able to go home at the end of the day. Please be sure to arrange a ride as you will not be able to drive. Prior to leaving the recovery facility, you will be given detailed instructions on how to care for yourself during the first few days. Dr. Sundine will also give you prescription medicine for pain, as well as antibiotics.
You will most likely be advised to stay home and rest for about a week. Most patients are able to return to work and other daily duties within seven to 10 days. You should not exercise or perform any strenuous physical activities for up to four weeks. Dr. Sundine will see you on a regular basis to check on your healing progress. He will also show you various ways to massage your breasts, so that your implants settle appropriately and give you the natural results you desire.
