Your Atlanta GA Breast Implants Plastic Surgeon
Breast implants are a common occurrence these days not only among celebrities, but also with working women. Implants are prosthetic devices which are used to replace missing body parts. Breast implant surgery is advised for women wanting to transform their breasts. It’s usually used for breast reconstruction as in the case of those women who have been operated for cancer as tumor removal surgery leads to loss of breast tissue making them smaller and uneven.
Cost of surgery
Breast implantation involves insertion of breast implants inside the breast skin of the patient.
Dr. Wright Jones, a well-qualified plastic surgeon from Atlanta GA, who also operates in Buckhead, Stockbridge and Marietta elaborates that implants are mainly of three types, namely saline filled implants, silicone gel filled implants and the latest form called composite implants.
In some cases, fat from other part of your body can also be used as implants, in which case the process is called fat transfer breast implantation.
The surgery is performed under anesthesia and the plastic surgeon makes incisions on one or both the breasts as required by the case. The implant is placed in secure and predetermined locations which is usually under or over the patient’s pectoral muscles. The incisions are closed using sutures and stitches after the insertions are made.
Follow advice of your cosmetic surgeon
Consulting your plastic surgeon and discussing in detail about your case is as important as the surgery. By doing so, you will clearly understand about not only the benefits of the surgery but also the health risks that it may produce. Your plastic surgeon will give you the required information on your specific case after a detailed medical evaluation.
You need to ask your surgeon as to why you need breast implantation; is it just for making your breasts more attractive or for breast reconstruction. Depending on the necessity of the surgery, your cosmetic surgeon will decide on the level and complexity of the procedure.
Mental health is equally important as your physical health. Your surgeon will analyze if you are of sound physical and mental health as it affects the results of the surgery. In some cases, surgeons may advise their patients to undergo other breast related surgeries such as breast lift in addition to breast implant insertion. Insurance companies do not support the finance of this surgery as it is cosmetic in nature.
Breast implants can be used to give your breasts an attractive shape by changing their shape and texture.
