Breast Implant Surgery Procedure Steps
Several steps will be involved in a major cosmetic surgery procedure such as breast implants. Although the surgeon may adopt different surgical techniques according to the patient’s unique needs, it will not have an impact on the overall procedure steps involved. The surgeon will customize breast augmentation to meet the patient’s specific needs.
At the time of pre-operative consultation, the surgeon will educate the patient about various procedure steps. This will allow the patient to become more familiar with breast implant surgery and overcome any initial anxiety about the surgery.
Patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta GA, and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive breast implant surgery from the outstanding and sagacious double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Wright Jones.
After the patient is taken to the surgery room, she will be placed under anesthesia. Breast implant plastic surgery usually required general anesthesia, which may be administered by an anesthesiologist or a certified anesthetist nurse. They will be present in the surgery room throughout the procedure to monitor the patient’s response.
Grogginess, nausea and other mild side effects may linger on for a few hours, after which the patient is usually allowed to go home. The patient will need to have someone who can safely drive her back home. She may also require aftercare for the first two to three days.
Placing the Incisions
Dr. Jones, who is also a plastic surgeon to the stars, will place incisions in inconspicuous locations to minimize subsequent scarring. The typical locations for the incisions will be under the breast crease, in the underarm area, around the areola border, or in the navel area in a few cases.
At the time of initial consultation and surgical planning, the surgeon will determine the size and location of the incisions. They will take into account the patient’s breast anatomy, the type and size of implants selected, and the patient’s personal aesthetic goals. Patient’s feedback will be taken at every step during the breast augmentation planning process.
Diligent and famous plastic surgeon Dr. Jones may place the breast implants under the pectoral muscle or in front of the pectoral muscle immediately behind the breast tissue. He will decide the implant placement after assessing the implant size and considering the unique breast anatomy of the patient. He will inform the benefits and limitations of each placement option in order to help the patient make a well-considered choice.
After the implants have been placed and adjusted into position in the breast tissue, the incisions will be closed with traditional or absorbable sutures. The surgeon will place temporary drain tubes under the incision sites to collect excess fluid. The patient must keep the incision areas clean and dry to minimize the risk of infection.
Bandages and Surgical Bra
The surgeon will cover the incision area in bandages after the surgery is over. In a few days, the bandages will be replaced with a special surgical bra. The patient will be required to wear this bra for a few weeks full-time as per the surgeon’s advice. Celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Jones receives patients from Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta GA, and other neighborhoods and cities across this part of The Peach State.
