Your Choices for the Breasts You Want
Once you decide you would like to go ahead with breast augmentation, Dr. Azar will walk you through a variety of choices which will help him personalize your results. While your anatomy and lifestyle are important considerations, most of your choices will come down to personal preference. Dr. Azar will help you understand how your outcome is influenced by your choice of incision location, implant placement, and breast implants. His patients from Simi Valley, Camarillo, and other areas appreciate the time he takes to help them understand the following decisions:
- Incision: Typically, Dr. Azar places the incision along the breast crease or around the areola where the resulting scar will be naturally disguised.
- Implant Placement: Implants can be placed under or on top of the pectoral muscle. The most common placement is under the muscle (sub-pectoral placement) because it usually provides the most natural looking results. Sub-pectoral placement also has been associated with a reduced risk of capsular contracture.
When it comes to breast implants, the choices are as diverse as the women who choose them:
- Material: Implants filled with saline (salt water) are available. There are FDA-approved silicone options as well.
- Shape: Implants come in the traditional round shape as well as the anatomical or teardrop shape. There are a variety of diameters and profiles available.
- Texture: The outer covering of the implant may be smooth or textured.
- Size: While saline implants are filled to the desired size, the size of a silicone implant is fixed and must be carefully chosen.
Your Recovery & Beyond
Dr. Azar performs breast augmentation in major area hospitals and surgery centers, accompanied by a board-certified M.D. anesthesiologist for the highest level of safety, comfort, and privacy. This outpatient procedure usually takes an hour to complete and is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia or IV sedation.
During the breast augmentation procedure, incisions are made on the breast and a pocket is formed either under or above the pectoral muscle. Next the breast implants are inserted and carefully positioned, and the incisions are closed. While experiences vary, most women can return to work and everyday activities within a week, and resume their exercise routine after about 3 weeks.
