Common Breast Surgery Procedures
Breast implant surgery is one of the most popular aesthetic breast surgery procedures in the United States today. The procedure involves surgical insertion of saline or silicone implants in the breast tissue to enhance their size, volume, and fullness. The procedure is typically performed on women who are unhappy with the naturally small size of their breasts, or have lost breast volume following a pregnancy or weight reduction. In some cases, breast augmentation may also be performed as a reconstructive surgery or as a way to correct the appearance of asymmetrical breasts.
Breast lift is recommended in cases where the breast size is fairly normal, but the breasts are sagging heavily due to excess skin and weak underlying muscles. This procedure can raise the position of breasts to a more youthful level, and make them tighter and firmer. In some cases, breast lift procedure may be combined with breast implant surgery for more comprehensive results. Dr. Esmailian will recommend the most appropriate treatment approach to his patients in Orange County, Newport Beach, Torrance, Los Alamitos, Long Beach, CA, and nearby areas.
Breast reduction procedure may be recommended in cases where the patient is bothered by oversized breasts due to aesthetic or medical reasons. The procedure involves surgical removal of excess breast tissue and reduction of loose skin to make the breasts more proportionately sized. Outstanding candidates for any breast surgery are patients with a positive outlook, clear aesthetic goals, and realistic expectations. Patients should be non-smokers or committed to giving up smoking several weeks before and after the surgery.
Preparation for Breast Surgery
The patient may be required to undergo certain medical tests, including mammograms, depending on their individual condition. The surgeon will advise the patient to stop smoking as well as aspirin and health supplements several weeks before the surgery. If the patient has been taking some kind of medications or herbal treatments, the surgeon may consult with the prescribing physician to stop these medications for a few days or weeks.
Recovery and Results
Following the breast surgery procedure, the breasts are likely to remain covered in bandages for a day or two. The surgeon may place a drain beneath the skin to collect excess fluid or blood. Most patients will experience mild pain and soreness in the breasts for the few days. The surgeon can prescribe pain relieving medications for a few days to keep the patient comfortable.
Depending on the extent of surgery performed, a majority of patients are able to go back to work within a week to 10 days. Heavy lifting and strenuous exercises should be avoided for at least four to six weeks after surgery. The results with most breast surgery procedures are long lasting and natural looking.
