Frequently Asked Questions about Breast Enhancement Surgery
Q: I’ve heard a lot about your Band Aid cosmetic procedures. Is there a minimally invasive form of breast augmentation?
A: There are some surgeons who perform what is called “awake breast augmentation”; that is, breast surgery with only local anesthesia. This is not a procedure that I perform. Breast enhancement surgery is an intricate body procedure that is best addressed in a hospital type surgical setting under general anesthesia. By utilizing general anesthesia, a plastic surgeon better protects the patient from undue mental and physical stress.
Q: What is the real difference between saline and silicone breast implants?
A: The physical difference between breast implants is that saline implants are constructed with a silicone shell filled with a sterile saline solution; whereas silicone implants consist of a silicone shell filled with a silicone gel. Both breast implant types produce attractive breast enhancement results. Choosing an implant hinges on factors such as preferred texture, desired breast size and shape, and existing breast appearance.
Q: You talk about natural looking plastic surgery results, how do you make augmented breasts look more natural?
A: To ensure patients achieve optimal breast augmentation results, a proper consultation is necessary to establish a patient’s goals. It is equally important for one’s plastic surgeon to note their current body proportions in deciding what size, shape, and texture of breast implant will best complement the existing breast tissue and contribute to a more desirable overall aesthetic.
