Breast Augmentation San Diego
Quite often, women desire a larger and fuller look for their breasts that makes their body appear femininely voluptuous. There is a way to achieve the look you want with breast augmentation. Breast augmentation or mammoplasty, enhances the shape, volume and size of a woman’s breasts. Mammoplasty is performed on an outpatient basis and in some cases it is done for patients who benefit from a breast lift. Dr. Talebzadeh has helped many patients understand their breast enlargement options to achieve a youthful and shapely appearance that he is known as one of the top breast surgeons in all of San Diego.
Breast augmentation is performed to increase fullness and size of a patient’s breasts. Women often find this procedure to be the best solution to erase the appearance of small or disproportionate breasts. Even mothers who have experienced uneven shapes or deflated breasts due to pregnancy find this to be a one of a kind procedure to restore their figure.
Breast Enlargement Procedure
The breast augmentation procedure often requires two hours in order to enhance breast size. Usually the patient is put under by general anesthesia so the patient is completely asleep and the incisions can be made near the crease of the breast, the underarm area or in the surrounding skin of the areolas. Depending on the type of breast implants and degree of enlargement, Dr. Talebzadeh will determine the best place to make the required incisions to create pockets for the implants.
Through the incisions, pockets are created behind the breast tissue or beneath the pectoral muscle to hold the breast implants. After the pockets are created, the breast implants are positioned and the incisions are closed with non-removable sutures in the breast tissue and sutures on the breast skin, and then held together by surgical tape and bandages.
Types of Breast Implants
There are a variety of breast implants used for patients requesting breast augmentation. Typically every breast implant is held together by a silicone shell filled with a sterile salt water solution called saline or with silicone gel. Both styles can then be arranged to a desired shape including round and tear-dropped (anatomical). Tear drop shaped breast implants tend to give a patient extra lower breast fullness, whereas, round implants are more likely to provide a round curve in the upper region of the breasts.
Breast Implant Size
While most potential patients believe that their surgery results will look completely obvious, however today breast implants can be sized to a natural proportion that reflects your body type. At the same time, the breasts can be enlarged to a more endowed look depending on the patient’s goals. Dr. Talebzadeh will take your original measurements during consultation and these will help guide you to find the appropriate size for breast implants. Dimensions that will be measured include factors such as breast width, height, and breast shape.
Recovery from Breast Augmentation
Typically, breast augmentation recovery instructions require the patient to take in plenty of rest and avoid strenuous physical activities in order to heal properly. Since breast enlargement is responsible for altering the body contour, a surgical bra will be worn for several weeks while the incisions heal and swelling reduces. Some patients report experiencing tightness in the breasts as well as sensitivity, all of which are temporary as the breast tissue and muscles adjust to conform naturally to the body. Most patients in good overall health are able to return to their normal activities within a week with limited physical activity for the next six weeks.
