Breast augmentation with implants in Detroit

Breast augmentation in Detroit is a surgery that aims to correct the shape and structure of the breasts. It is considered as an effective option to increase the size of breasts or to restore the natural volume of the breasts which is lost after pregnancy or significant weight changes in women.

Breast surgery can correct features such as tubular breasts, which are small and pointy (improving the appearance of this type of breasts); also it corrects sagging breasts because the breast implant fills the extra skin, increases the top of the breasts and makes them larger; also corrects asymmetries, i.e. very marked differences between the volume of one

breast over the other breast, tuberous breasts, etc. In addition, if the breasts are very apart, breast surgery can reduce the distance between them.

It is noteworthy that today, breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty, is one of the most popular plastic surgeries in the USA along with liposuction, even though it has a long tradition. The aesthetics of the breast is a symbol of beauty, and improves women’s self-esteem. Achieving attractive breasts and desired by the patient is a challenge for the surgeon, because no two breasts are alike, since every woman has a different body. To this we must add that each patient has their own aesthetic taste in relation to the size, shape and expectations of the results. In any case, it should be noted that Breast augmentation in Detroit has a high level of satisfaction among patients who have had it done and that the benefits are not only limited to the realm of the aesthetic, but it also has an impact on self-esteem of women, and therefore on their personal and social relationships.

Types of implants and how to choose them

Appropriate size

It is important to know that the right size of a breast implant is subjective depending on personal preferences of the patient and is related to other

physical features. All patients say they want a natural result. It is therefore important that you clearly explain your ideas to the plastic surgeon about the size of your new breasts before breast augmentation in Detroit. In addition, it is necessary to know that the type of implant you choose will also influence the price of breast augmentation.

Breast augmentation simulation is an important part of the appointment. Despite seeing photos of other patients operated with a specific size, such as 300cc, different body characteristics have different results. Simulation of breast augmentation with real testers is to evaluate the measures of breasts and chest, using implants padded with a special bra so you can see in the mirror. Regarding the size, the simulation with 3D testers is mandatory, because the patient can see what she will look and feel like with every size of implant and she can freely choose the size.

It is important to know that the right size of a breast implant is subjective depending on personal preferences of the patient and is related to other physical features.

Implant shape (round or anatomical)

The choice of the implant has to be assessed during the appointment with the plastic surgeon before the surgery. You have to decide on the size, texture, filler material and also on the shape, and all based on the anatomy and the wishes of the patient.

As for the breast implant shape, we can say that there are mainly two groups: round implants and anatomically shaped implants. The latter have a teardrop or a drop shaped base, while the base of round implants is circular. In both cases there are also different profiles to suit each patient, and so we can find more pronounced profiles with more volume or some flatter ones. Although the most used nowadays are anatomical implants, it is also true that in many cases round implants are recommended, for example, because the patient has very pronounced saggy breasts; in this case, the round implant will add more volume at the top of the breast, which will highlight the cleavage area.

Textured Vs. smooth implants

One more choice to be made by patient, assisted and advised by the plastic surgeon, is on the texture of the breast implant shell. There are two options: a smooth texture or rough texture. Each has its advantages and disadvantages, so the best advice is to seek advice from your specialist. For example, smooth implants require a smaller incision for placement while textured implants are less likely to suffer capsular contracture or move or rotate.

Textured implants are less likely to suffer capsular contracture or move or rotate.

Filler material: saline or silicone gel

The content of breast implants used in breast augmentation in Detroit can be of two types: saline or silicone gel.

Saline, also known as physiological saline solution, is a mixture of water

and salt, having similar concentration to the one of the human body. The most important feature of this substance is safety, because if it spills after a rupture of the implant, the body absorbs it without any problems.
It should also be noted that saline breast implants have lower density, which allows the outer layers to have a valve so that the doctor can place the deflated implant inside the breasts and then insert the right amount of filling for an aesthetic effect. Likewise, these implants also allow to modify the size of the implant without requiring a change of implants, but simply by adding more saline.

The downside is that being a very fluid and inconsistent substance can easily escape from porosities or holes that may appear on the shell. If the implant remains empty, it causes the breast remains with a soft consistency. Furthermore, in some cases the valve leaks when it deteriorates. If that happens, it is necessary for the patient to have another surgery done in order to remove the implant and replace it with a new one.

The content of breast implants used in breast augmentation in Detroit can be of two types: saline or silicone gel.

Currently, most implants are filled with a highly cohesive silicone gel. Both visual appearance and the feel to the touch are more natural than saline. These last-generation implants are more durable and more resistant. But above all, the great advantage of these is that their content remains cohesive in case of a rupture, i.e. even if there is a crack in the shell, silicone gel will not come out, it will not spread to other areas of the body, but remain in the same place. Its density and features also lowers the risk of rippling or folds.

Durability and safety of breast implants

How long do breast implants last? Should we have them replaced?

Current last generation breast implants used in breast augmentation in Detroit have an indefinite life. This does not necessarily mean that they will last forever, although in many cases it does, but do not have a date of mandatory replacement. Old breast implants filled with silicone oils, were more likely to rupture, with the corresponding threat to women’s health.

Current last generation breast implants have an indefinite life.

Current implants, besides not having the risk of leakage of the filler material, are much more resistant and durable, so there is no a certain date when they have to be changed. Therefore, the patient will have to undergo periodic checkups with their plastic surgeon tells them to; if no abnormality is observed during these tests and we make sure that the implant is in a good condition, there will be no need for any action and  breast implants will last throughout the life of the patient. In fact, the best brands of implants guarantee that their implants last for life, meaning thereby that, if broken, damaged implants will be replaced at no cost.

Are breast implants safe?

Last generation breast implants are completely safe. The days when

silicone oil was used as filler material are gone. In case of an implant rupture, this oil risked spilling and spreading to other areas of the body, with the corresponding threat to the health of the patient. In current high cohesive silicone gel breast implants, this cannot happen and, if broken, the contents remain cohesive and in the same place where it was put. And if that were not enough, it should be noted that the compounds which implants are made of have passed all necessary quality controls, and pose no threat to health. However, it should be stressed that, like any surgery, breast augmentation with breast implants have a number of risks and possible complications that you must know about before the intervention in order to take appropriate measures and minimize the possibility of complications.

It should also be stressed that, despite the belief of many people, breast implants do not increase the risk of breast cancer or prevent mammogram screening or any test designed to detect tumors in the female breast. The patient should simply inform the professional who is performing mammography, that she has breast implants, so that the medical specialist can take the necessary measures to run the test correctly.
In any case, it must be said that are totally false certain popular beliefs: the bust does not sag more because of breast implants and there is no possibility that these implants can explode on an airplane.

Candidates for a breast augmentation in Detroit

The ideal patients to undergo breast augmentation in Detroit are physically and emotionally healthy women who are aware of the risks of surgery and understand and accept the results that can be obtained with it. Many patients want a breast augmentation after pregnancy or breastfeeding.

As for the recommended minimum age for breast augmentation, we can say that there is no minimum age for breast augmentation in Detroit but what is important is that the breasts are fully developed so it is advisable to have it done after the age of 18, because at that age normally the process of development of sexual characteristics is finished.

Also, women that age have a greater emotional stability which allows you to make decisions with more confidence. Age itself is not a determining factor as long as the patient’s breasts has not changed in size for some time. And since there may be the possibility of a late breast development, it is best to seek advice from your plastic surgeon who will be the best person to assess whether you are eligible to undergo surgery.

If a person is not the right age or her breasts are not developed enough, there are a number of measures such as exercise, diet, or massages that can help increase the size a little, although we certainly must say that the effectiveness of these measures is insignificant.

Preoperative phase and medical tests for breast augmentation surgery

The patient has to undergo a medical evaluation process to make sure that surgery can be performed without risks to the patient. Some of the medical exams that the specialist may consider necessary are:

  • Mammograms.
  • Skin distention.
  • Permissibility of the state of the skin that covers the breasts.

  • Analysis of possible breast asymmetries.
  • Measure the distance between the nipple and submammary fold.
  • Assessing the condition of the breasts.
  • Cardiac and respiratory studies.

Along with these preoperative tests, the patient should not have suffered illnesses that prevent the breast augmentation, such as:

  • Sufferings from infections in any area of the body.
  • History of bleeding disorders.
  • Immune system disorders.
  • Skin or chest muscle disorders.
  • If the patient has suffered from mastitis.
  • Breast abscess.
  • Sufferings from tumors.
  • If the patient has diffuse breast pain.
  • Hypersensitivity to rare materials.

Types of anesthesia

In breast augmentation in Detroit one of the most important factors, as it happens in any other surgery, is the type of anesthesia which will be used

for surgery. It is therefore imperative that the patient be perfectly informed to understand the whole process of treatment. The plastic surgeon should provide information about what type of anesthesia will be used and what benefits it will bring to the patient.

In a breast augmentation surgery two types of anesthesia are used: general anesthesia and local anesthesia combined with sedation. In either situation, it is necessary that the patient obey the instructions of the anesthesiologist and doctor to avoid complications during the operation. Anesthesia will make you unconscious and unable to feel pain during the surgery. Once completed and during the following days, you may feel a slight pain or discomfort, which will be treated with pain medication your surgeon prescribes you.

There is no minimum age for breast augmentation in Detroit but it is important that the breasts are fully developed.

The duration of the intervention will depend on each case, but on average, it will be between one and two hours.

Surgical approaches: periareolar, axillary and submammary

The surgical approach is the place where the incision is made to then put the breast implant through it. That incision is closed with stitches and it is where later the surgery scar remains.

Nowadays in breast augmentation surgery, there are three types of surgical approaches, each has its advantages and disadvantages. We will explain briefly what each one of them:

INFRAMAMMARY (SUBMAMMARY) APPROACH:

About four centimeter long cut is made in the inframammary line in order

to enter the space where the implant will be placed. Although this way the scar could be more visible, unlike after the other two surgical approaches, but the breast tissue will not be damaged as it reaches the pectoral muscle, which is why many surgeons recommend this approach for patients who wish to breastfeed in the future. One disadvantage is that this approach does not work for patients who have a lower breast pole short, so in those cases the incision needs be made a few centimeters lower to achieve a better bottom curvature of the breast, but the scar can be very visible.

Axillary approach:

This surgical approach is rapid, however, it is called ‘blind’, because the cut or incision is made in the fold of the breast and armpit, that is far from the breast; because of that the plastic surgeon should lower the breast implant from the armpit to the inframammary line. The scar left is very little visible. A disadvantage is that if the patient choses anatomical implants, you cannot choose this kind of approach. Nowadays it is the least used surgical approach.

AREOLAR SURGICAL APPROACH:

Using this approach, the surgeon makes a small incision in the lower edge of the areola in the darkest area of the areola and the line with the breast skin. Through it, the surgeon goes deeper into the breast tissue to reach the space where the implant will be put. Among its benefits it is that when this approach is used, the scar is less visible, because when three months have passed, the scar is not noticeable. In addition, with this surgical approach there is less likelihood of capsular contracture. However, among the disadvantages it is that it is not recommended for women who want to breastfeed in the future, because some arteries of the nipple can get blocked. It should be noted that breast augmentation can slightly change the size of the nipple.

Where are breast implants placed?

Breast implants are placed mainly in two sites when performing breast augmentation in Detroit: submuscular, that is behind the muscle and

subglandular, which is in front of the muscle. There is a third kind of placement which is called subfascial or intramuscular, which is recommended rarely and when specifically indicated. Most plastic surgeons advise, except when circumstances require a different option, all breast implants to be placed behind the pectoralis major muscle, as this way more natural appearance and breast shape is achieved. In addition, when placed in this way the risk of capsular contracture is reduced. Besides that, it is much easier to visualize the mammary gland when a mammogram screening is done.

Postoperative breast augmentation in Detroit

Bandage and special bra

In the immediate postoperative period, that is once the breast

augmentation surgery ends, plastic surgeon puts the patient a gauze bandage or dressing around the breasts and chest. However, in some cases, the surgeon chooses a surgical bra. In most cases, both the bandage and surgical bra, are to be worn the first three days after breast augmentation or the time that the plastic surgeon recommends. The bra that contains the breast should not squeeze the treated area.

After the first three days, the plastic surgeon will remove the special bandage or surgical bra and recommend a special adjustable bra Velcro type, which will help push the breast towards its lower pole with the aim of promoting the roundness of the implants in the submammary area and prevent implants from remaining in high positions in the chest.

The duration of the intervention will depend on each case, but on average, it will be between one and two hours.

You must choose a bra which will hold your breasts properly, because a right choice will help reduce postoperative discomfort. An adequate bra which will be worn after mammoplasty augmentation must meet the three following characteristics:

  1. Comfort: Since the intervened area is too sensitive, and there may even be some pain, bra should be as comfortable as possible.
  2. Securing and safety: The bra should adequately protect the surgical site to prevent excessive movements.
  3. Brassieres or sport bras without underwire: Most plastic surgeons recommend a sports bra without underwire as a first choice. As the process of healing progresses, the surgeon may recommend a change of brassiere.

Massages to prevent capsular contracture

Studies have shown the efficacy of early mobilization of breast implants with the help of massages in order to prevent capsular contracture. 48 hours following the surgery the patient can start self breast massage.
The patient will be trained on how to do that in order to properly perform massage sessions, which should be done routinely, increasing movements as postoperative discomfort decreases.

During the massages, the patient will mobilize the breast implant in a circular way and into all quadrants. The movements should be gentle but firm, regular and continuous, without forcing too much.

Is breastfeeding possible after breast augmentation in Detroit?

Another question that women normally ask is if they will be able to breast feed their future children when the recovery period from breast augmentation surgery in Detroit is finished. To respond in the best possible way, we must say that the patient should expose the plastic surgeon their plan to breastfeed their future children, so that the physician can choose the most appropriate technique and make breastfeeding possible with breast implants.

Actually it is possible to breastfeed, because the implants can be placed behind the pectoral muscle and locate the scar under the inframammary line, so that the nipple will not suffer any damage or alteration. It is important to take into account that when the areolar surgical approach is used, in some cases some complications may arise, because it can leave minimal scarring inside the areola that may not prevent the patient from breastfeeding, but it may make it difficult because the ducts will be damaged.

Precautions after surgery

After breast augmentation surgery, most surgeons recommend not to sunbathe topless at least for a year and that you should apply a lot of sunscreen even with the bikini or swimsuit on, as specialists argue that sunlight can penetrate through the fabric, especially if it is light. What happens is that sunbathing topless recently after the surgery can aggravate pigmentation of the scars and make them more visible. In any case, this time depends on the skin type (most brunettes need less time) and how the healing process has evolved.

SPORT AND PHYSICAL EXERCISE

After breast augmentation surgery in Ecatepec the patient will be off work for a few days and will have to avoid any movements that constrict the pectoral muscle for at least the first three weeks. Already one month after the operation you can gradually take up sporting activities, but it all depends on the type of sport that you do and the instructions that your plastic surgeon will give to each patient.

SEX AFTER BREAST INCREASE

The first thing to make clear is that having sexual relation is not the same as pressing or touching the intervened area during sex. That means you can have sex normally as long as you avoid touching the breasts during the first few days. Besides, the woman will be sensitive in that area, or may even have pain, and may feel discomfort rather than pleasure during the contact.

Risks of surgery

Breast augmentation surgery is a very safe surgery and thousands of them are performed every day, also being one of the surgeries with the highest

level of satisfaction among patients who have undergone it. However, although minimal, risks do exist and it is convenient to know what they could be and, if possible, take precautions to avoid them or make them the mildest possible. Among the most common risks we can find:

  • Bruising: Accumulation of blood in the bust area which usually disappears by itself over time. However, in some cases a drain can be applied.
  • Infections: Generally, infections most commonly appear in the first week following the surgery. Infections can be treated with antibiotics. In very severe cases and if the patient does not respond to antibiotics (happens very rarely) the breast implant will be taken out.
  • Capsular Contracture: This can occur when the scar or capsule around the implant begins to tighten.
