For many women, there is a close relationship between their self-esteem and the size and appearance of their breasts. When they feel that their breasts are small or uneven, it may be impossible for some women to ever feel fully confident.
If you have been feeling less than your fully feminine self for a number of years, then maybe it’s time to do something about it. A Miami breast augmentation procedure at Prestige Plastic Surgery is all that you need to give your self-confidence a welcome boost.
Also called augmentation mammoplasty, a breast augmentation procedure is designed to increase the patient’s satisfaction with the size and shape of her breasts. Women may seek this procedure for numerous reasons, which may include:
-Recent weight loss
-A history of pregnancy and breastfeeding
-Breasts that have begun to sag with time
-A genetic propensity toward a smaller breast size
-Dissatisfaction with the shape of the breasts
-Breasts that are unevenly sized
Any of these reasons and many others may be your reason for contacting Prestige Plastic Surgery in Miami, Florida. Whatever your reasons may be, chances are good that the bust line that you are looking for can be achieved in just one surgical procedure.
Breast augmentation surgery is definitely not a one-size-fits-all procedure. In fact, patients have a wide range of choices when it comes to choosing the size and shape of the implant and even the material out of which the implants are constructed.
For instance, your surgeon will work with you to discuss all of the options that are available to you. These options include the shape, texture, profile, type and size of your chosen implants.
The choices are many, including silicone and saline breast implants, anatomical or round implants and textured or smooth implants.
Size is nearly always the main consideration with patients. Whether you are looking for just a slight size increase or something that’s going to be truly life-changing, the goal of the procedure is the same: To give you the volume that you prefer. You’ll want to take your body’s other proportions into consideration, and your surgeon will help you make the decision that’s right for you.
Another critical factor is the implant profile. Profile is the word that’s used to describe how far the implant projects from the chest. You’ll have choices that include high, moderate and low profiles.
Patients also may choose between having saline or silicone breast implants. The technology involved in designing and manufacturing both of these types of implants has come a long way in recent years. Today, both options can last for decades, which means that you won’t have to worry about the appearance of your breasts for a long time to come.
Your surgeon further will consult with you about the placement of your implants. That is, will the implants be placed partially or completely under the chest muscle? Or, will the implants be placed over the muscle?
Several factors may affect placement. Among these are:
-The patient’s body type
-The state of the patient’s health
-The number of cc’s, or size, of the implants
-Are the implants saline or silicone?
-The patient’s goals and desires for the outcome of the procedure
Because your Miami breast augmentation doctor at Prestige Plastic Surgery has already performed a large volume of these procedures, you can rest assured that your choice will be guided by plenty of knowledge and experience.
All breast augmentations are performed in our state-of-the-art surgery center, which is conveniently located in Miami. Patients are placed under general anesthesia, and the procedure itself requires about one hour. We ask that patients allow between four and five hours for the procedure to provide time for the effects of the anesthesia to lessen.
Once the procedure is complete, the doctors and staff at Prestige Plastic Surgery continue to monitor your progress. Drainage tubes may have been inserted in your breasts to drain excess fluid, and you may feel tired and sore for a few days. Prescription pain medication may be obtained through your surgeon.
Within just a few days of your surgery, you’ll come back to our office for removal of the gauze and surgical dressings. Sutures or stitches that do not automatically dissolve will also be removed. At this time, most breast augmentation patients begin wearing a sports bra that offers plenty of comfort and support.
Soreness, swelling and bruising may persist for a few weeks, but they do subside. It’s wise for patients to take things slow and easy during this time. Get plenty of rest and try to avoid strenuous activities. Return to your regular routines slowly, preferably over the course of a few weeks.
