Plastic Surgery Beverly Hills – Why Getting Breast Augmentation in the U.S. is the Best Decision

How do Breast Implants Rupture?

The two most used breast implants are silicone gel implants and saline implants. Both of these implants have been approved by the FDA and both are prone to ruptures. The way that the ruptures occur for each is very different. Saline implants have a valve. During breast augmentation, your surgeon will place an empty silicone envelope in your chest and use the valve to fill it up with saline. If the valve is defective, or breaks, then it will leak. A mammogram can cause an implant to rupture, especially if the implants are old or the mammography technician doesn’t have experience working with breast implants. Be sure to notify the technician that you have breast implants and make sure he/she is trained to perform your mammogram.

No, breast implants Beverly Hills do not cause breast cancer, but they make it more difficult for doctors to detect breast cancer because they hide tumors. Mammograms can’t see through breast implants, which is why they will miss the tumors of half of the augmented women who have breast cancer. Only have a mammogram done by a skilled technician who is aware of your breast implants. In addition to being an extra cost, mammograms take longer and will expose you to more radiation each time. According to a study done by the FDA, mammograms can cause implants to rupture.

What should I ask my doctor?

If you are getting breast augmentation Beverly Hills you will need to do a bit of research on the implants and the surgeon. Make sure that your doctor is a board-certified plastic surgeon. Ask your surgeon to show you photographs of patients. If your plastic surgeon tells you that the breast implants are safe, you have the right to request a copy any report that studied women with implants for at least 10 years. Be sure to ask your doctor for written information about the risks of breast implant and read it thoroughly before you decide on surgery. Give yourself enough time to gather all the information you need and so you can ask your surgeon questions. If
your doctor says all his patients are happy with their results, ask to speak with the patients who have had implants for at least 7 years.

breast augmentation Beverly Hills – The Future of Breast Augmentation is Here

11 juin 2012
There is a very good chance you know someone who has had a breast implant or breast augmentation procedure done. After all, in 2011 alone, over 300,000 breast implant surgeries were performed in the United States, making breast augmentation Beverly Hills the most sought-after cosmetic surgery procedure.

breast augmentation Beverly HillsIf you do know someone who has had a breast augmentation procedure done and were there to witness the aftermath of a breast implant/augmentation procedure, you’d know that it’s not a pleasant experience: the patient is in enough pain to need prescription pain medication for up to two weeks, the breasts are swollen and sensitive for several weeks post-op, your surgeon may recommend a very limited range of motion for a few days and is prohibited from exercise or any heavy lifting for a whole month, and the patient has to wear a post-operative medical bra for a full week after the surgery. However, with continuing developments in the world of medical technology, all the unpleasant post-op consequences are about to be a thing of the past.

A new technique called “flash breast augmentation” has recently been put
into practice. This revolutionary procedure gives women larger breasts
without bleeding during surgery, having the need for narcotics post-op, or having to deal with the long recovery associated with breast implant surgery. Flash breast augmentation differs from traditional breast augmentation surgery by incorporating a precise dissection sequence and technique that result in a much shorter surgery (about 30-45 minutes as
compared to 60-90 minutes), significantly less trauma to the breast muscles, tissues, and rib cage, and a short, painless recovery, with some patients going out to dinner the night of the surgery and returning to work the next day.

Another new technique that has been recently developed and is raising satisfaction levels of patients who have had the procedure done is the “gummy bear breast implant”. These breast implants Beverly Hills were given their name due to the fact that even when cut in half, the implants retained their shapes, much like gummy bears do. Gummy bear implants are made with high-strength silicone gel and are considered much safer than liquid-filled saline or silicone implants because of their low rupture rates. According to a plastic surgeon, more and more patients are asking for and preferring these implants over saline or silicone implants because they look and feel most like a natural breast and are not likely to ripple, fold, or wrinkle.For more details please visit: www.drkapoormd.com
