Breast Augmentation Scottsdale
Breast augmentations are a popular procedure intended to bring balance to a women’s proportions while enhancing both the shape and volume of the breasts. This procedure is great for restoring the breasts following pregnancy and after breastfeeding takes its toll.
Most women considering a breast augmentation feel their breasts are disproportionately small relative to the rest of their body. Others are unhappy with the shape or asymmetries of their breasts and are looking to balance this out and/or increase fullness.
Whatever your reason for considering this popular procedure, it’s important to know that a breast augmentation can achieve much more than just a larger cup size. Having full, aesthetically pleasing breasts that you are happy with can help you feel more confident in your appearance every day. In the end, providing a significant boost to the patient’s overall happiness and quality of life is the main objective.
When it comes to breast implants, there are choices to be made regarding size, shape, and composition. These decisions, along with many others, will be discussed during consultation. During this, Dr. Daiza uses her experience and in-depth knowledge to advise the patient regarding the best course of action based off of their unique aesthetic goals and personal preferences.
Of the implant options available, a vast majority of the patients opt for silicone breast implants. Both silicone and saline breast implants have their own benefits and drawbacks.
Silicone is said to have a more natural feel and is less prone to produce wrinkling along the sides, while saline is made of a more natural substance and can be injected through a pump after inserting the implant. If the procedure is sub-pectoral, the feel of the implant becomes less important. Your tissue and muscle will hide the composition of the implant while still benefitting from the added volume.
Because breasts can continue to grow until a woman hits her late teens or early 20s, the FDA requires women to be at least 18 years old to get saline-filled implants and at least 22 years old for silicone implants.
Another aspect of the surgery that will need to be discussed during your consultation is the insertion points. Depending on the size and type of implant being utilized, the surgeon will work with you to determine the best place for the incision.
The three most common incision location options are through the armpit (transaxillary), around the areola (periareolar), and under the folds of the breasts (inframammary).
The procedure typically requires general anesthesia and will necessitate some recovery time. Just how long it takes to heal will vary depending on the individual and the scope of the procedure.
