You may desire a breast augmentation for many reasons with the overall goal of wanting to feel confident in your body. Your breasts have served you well over the years, but now you want a little help to recapture the perkiness and elasticity of youth. If you are looking for a breast augmentation and breast implant options in the Fort Meyers area, choose a plastic surgeon who will follow your roadmap and work tirelessly to ensure the best results possible.
Here are three important components to consider for successful breast augmentation and exceptional results.
The Plastic Surgeon
Your first step for any cosmetic procedure is partnering with a plastic surgeon who has years of relevant experience and is board certified. A plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery has completed the appropriate training and passed comprehensive written and oral examinations covering all plastic surgery procedures. You should choose a surgeon who can give you a realistic overview of the procedure and offer full transparency so you can make the best choices regarding your breast augmentation.
Additionally, your plastic surgeon should be working in tandem with a highly qualified surgical team and have access to an AAAASF accredited surgical center. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons offers a wealth of information on how to choose a plastic surgeon for your breast augmentation procedure.
Customizing Your Procedure
Once you decide on a surgeon, you should carefully craft and customize your procedure to get the best results possible. Women seeking a breast augmentation usually want to increase the size of their breasts, which may have shrunk due to pregnancy or age, reshape the breast area to achieve an aesthetically pleasing silhouette, or correct breast asymmetry. You should have a clear picture of what issues you want to improve in your breasts when starting this process.
Dr. Hasen will work with you to customize your procedure in the following ways:
- Choosing the size of your implants
- Choosing your breast implant fill material
- Choosing the placement of the implants
- Trying out a variety of implant sizes and profiles and previewing your results beforehand with VECTRA® 3D Imaging
All these decisions will contribute to achieving the gorgeous breasts you have always dreamed about.
The Recovery Process
After the breast augmentation surgery is completed, your main goal will be to catch a glimpse of your brand-new breasts! However, it is important to have realistic expectations as well as a clear understanding of any required aftercare or treatment. You need to treat your incisions carefully and monitor them for signs of infection. Your plastic surgeon will run through a checklist of signs to look for and what to do if any contingencies arise.
Discuss with your plastic surgeon how to care for your breasts after you have healed from surgery and how long your breast augmentation results will last. The usual recovery time for this procedure is 1 to 2 weeks, and you may be able to resume normal activities in the third week.
