Benefits

 

When a new patient is looking for breast implants or another breast surgery procedure, she may have only a vague idea of the effectiveness of the surgery in her case. Each breast surgery procedure may be performed using different surgical techniques and approaches, depending on an individual patient’s breast anatomy and her personal aesthetic goals. Sometimes a patient may need only a minor surgery, while in other cases, the required surgery may be extensive or complicated.

In some cases, the patient may need a combination of two procedures such as breast lift and breast augmentation. It can become difficult for a patient to make the appropriate choices. This is where breast surgery before and after photos can play an important role in helping the patient to make informed decisions.

Being Realistic about the Outcome

In some cases, the patient may form misplaced expectations about a certain breast surgery procedure, despite the best verbal explanations of the surgeon. In such a situation, the patient may end up being disappointed with the final results, even when the surgeon may have performed the procedure exactly as per the treatment plan.

Such unwelcome situations can be avoided when the patient has an access to breast surgery before and after photos at the time of pre-op consultation. With these pictures, the patient will know exactly what the procedure can or cannot do for her.

Photographs on the Surgeon’s Website

The plastic surgeon may choose to provide breast surgery before and after photos on their practice website. New patients may review the photos online in the privacy of their home or office. Only when they are more convinced about the procedure, they may decide to visit the surgeon’s office for a consultation.

Preparing for Breast Implant Surgery

Farbod Esmailian | Plastic Surgery

Preparing for Breast Implant Surgery Orange CountyOne of the most customizable cosmetic surgery procedures today is breast augmentation, which can be adapted to suit the individual aesthetic needs of a patient. Therefore, it is becomes essential that such a procedure involves effective advance preparation and planning to derive maximum advantage for the patients. Unlike breast lift or breast reduction, the procedure of breast enhancement involves surgical placement of breast implants.

Choosing the right implants, determining their appropriate placement, and identifying the best location and type of incisions are key decisions that must be taken in advance. Dr. Farbod Esmailian is an experienced breast surgeon providing breast augmentation and other procedures to patients in Orange County, Newport Beach, Torrance, Los Alamitos, Long Beach, CA, and nearby areas.

Initial Consultation

To begin with, the surgeon must determine the suitability of a patient for the breast surgery procedure. Whether it is a procedure such as breast lift, breast reduction or breast augmentation, choosing the right candidate for the surgery is the first step in the preparation process. In case of breast augmentation, the surgeon will evaluate the overall health of the patient, history of surgeries, and the current medical conditions, if any.

If the patient suffers from certain allergies, or has been consuming products such as tobacco, alcohol, or certain types of medications for a considerable period of time, the surgeon will make a more detailed evaluation. Patients with a history of breast cancer in the family may have to undergo certain tests or mammograms. Existing medications or herbal supplements, if any, may have to be readjusted for a few weeks before and after the surgery.

Deciding Appropriate Breast Implants

A key part of the preparation process is making the right choice of breast implants. The final outcome will depend to an extent on this choice. The surgeon will take the breast measurements, assess the skin quality, and other parameters before recommending the appropriate type, size, shape, texture, and profile of breast implants. Patients in Orange County, Newport Beach, Torrance, Los Alamitos, Long Beach, CA, and surrounding areas can consult with Dr. Esmailian for breast augmentation.

Before and After Photos

The preparation process at this stage will also include taking photos of the breasts for future records to compare the difference in breast appearance after the surgery. During the pre-op consultation and preparation process, the patient should ask as many questions as they may have, and clarify all their doubts and concerns. Before and after photos may be used at this stage to ensure that the patient knows exactly what the procedure can or cannot do for her.

Final Preparation

The surgeon may order blood tests and a few other tests close to the day of the procedure. The patient should follow the surgeon’s instructions carefully, particularly with regard to quitting smoking at least six to eight weeks before surgery. If the patient has been taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs, these will also have to be stopped several days prior to surgery. The surgeon will decide whether to perform the procedure using general anesthesia or IV sedation, and then finally go ahead with the procedure as per the treatment plan.

During the initial consultation, Dr. Esmailian will examine various aspects to determine whether the patient is a stellar candidate for breast implants.

Age Restriction for Breast Implants

The FDA has approved the use of both saline and silicone gel based breast implants for cosmetic breast enhancement. However, it has imposed a minimum age requirement to ensure only women with fully developed breasts, and those who able to sustain the procedure physiologically as well as emotionally may undergo breast augmentation. The woman candidate should be above 18 years of age for saline implants, and above 21 years for silicone implants.

Who may not be a fit candidate?

While many women are keen to seek procedures such as breast implants, breast lift, breast reduction and others, but not every woman may be in a fit condition to receive the procedure. Dr. Esmailian will consider several factors and then make a recommendation whether the patient is fit for a breast augmentation surgery or not.

  • The woman suffers from an active infection that needs priority treatment over a cosmetic procedure.
  • Symptoms of cancer or pre-cancer have yet to be treated adequately.
  • The woman is currently pregnancy or nursing.

Evaluation of a Patient

Certain physiological and emotional factors will typically play a role in the choice of a suitable candidate for breast implants:

  • Medical history of the patient and overall physical health.
  • Whether the patient has been smoking, drinking or consuming certain types of drugs, and for how long.
  • Whether the patient has received breast surgeries in the past.
  • What is the patient’s typical tendency to bleed?
  • Is the patient susceptible to infections?
  • The patient’s personal predisposition to developing capsular contracture.

Suitable Candidate

A patient with one or more of the following attributes can be considered a suitable candidate for breast augmentation surgery:

  • The patient’s breast size is naturally small.
  • The breast size is near normal, but the patient desires a bigger size for aesthetic reasons.
  • The patient has lost breast volume after pregnancy, nursing, or substantial weight loss.
  • The size or shape of the breasts is uneven.
  • Patient has lost breast tissue after a mastectomy or breast injury.

Silicone Breast Implant Safety

Farbod Esmailian | Plastic Surgery

Silicone Breast Implant Safety Orange CountyBreast implants are essentially a type of medical device surgically implanted underneath the tissue of the breasts in order to enhance the size of the breasts or restore the breast back to its original size after pregnancy, weight loss or mastectomy. It is basically a kind of breast augmentation procedure.

Breast implants are usually available in the United States under two categories-silicone and saline breast implants. While the internal matter for both types of implants is different, their outer shell is made up of substance, i.e. silicone. The size, thickness of the shell and the shape of the implants varies.

Choosing the type of Breast Implant

While saline breast implants consist of sterile salt water, silicone implants have silicone gel filled in them. When saline implants are inserted, they are empty. They are only filled up once they have been placed under the breast tissue. These implants can be utilized by women who are 18 years of age and above for the purpose of a breast lift or breast augmentation. Women of different ages can also go for saline implants for breast reconstruction.

The common verdict among women is that silicone breast implants appear and give the feel of  natural breasts. Women of the age of 22 years and older can opt for silicone breast implants for breast augmentation. Again women of different ages can also use them for breast reconstruction.

Safety points in Silicone Breast Implant

With both kinds of breast implants, there is a risk of ruptures. These could be caused as a result of error in surgery, a slip or fall or in very rare cases, with pressure or force put on the breasts at the time of a mammogram. The impact of ruptures in case of silicone implanted breasts is different from saline-based breast implants.

The ruptures in silicone implants are not easily noticed. If there is a breakage of the implant, the liquid silicone remains in the body itself. At times, it can travel out and spread into the lymph nodes outside the breasts. However, research has not yet revealed any risk of disease related to such a rupture taking place.

As mentioned before, this leakage of silicone gel is not associated with any systemic disease or health issue such as breast cancer, rheumatoid arthritis or reproductive issues.

Nonetheless keeping in mind the non-existent risk, in a situation where there is a rupture of the silicone implant, your surgeon will most likely guide you to remove it along with any loose silicone.

Saline Breast Implant Safety

Farbod Esmailian | Plastic Surgery

Saline Breast Implant Safety Orange CountySaline breast implants basically contain sterile salt-water and have an outer shell or covering made up of silicone. While some saline breast implants come in the pre-filled variety, others are usually filled during the surgical procedure of breast augmentation. Saline breast implants are available in a variety of sizes. They have different kinds of shells as well-textured or smooth.

These breast implants are approved by the FDA and can be utilized for breast augmentation among women of 18 years of age and above. These saline breast implants are also used for breast reconstructions and revision operations among many women of different ages.

Implantation process

In most cases, saline implants are filled up once they have been placed under the breast tissue. So, a smaller incision is required for these implants as compared to silicone breast implants which are pre-filled.

In addition to this, adjustments can also be made to saline breast implants after surgery. Months after the breast augmentation procedure, a woman has the option to enhance or reduce the size of the saline breast implants. This can be done without the use of surgery. The cosmetic surgeon simply  puts in more liquid or takes out excess liquid from the implants using a syringe. But no changes can be made to the standard size of the silicone implants which come in the pre-filled implant variety.

Safety factor

With both kinds of breast implants (saline and silicone), there is an associated risk of ruptures. These ruptures could result from a error in surgery, a fall and maybe even some extra force put on the breast in a mammogram procedure (this situation is very rare).

As compared to silicone implant, ruptures in saline breast implants are very easy to detect. When there is a rupture in saline breast implants, deflation of the implant takes place resulting in a change in the shape and size of the breast.

The saline liquid which leaks out of the implant gets absorbed in the body, but does not have any health risks associated with it. However, your surgeon may recommend you to get the silicone shell removed and a new implant could be inserted immediately if desired by you.

Research shows no concrete link between saline breast implants and disease related to connective tissue, reproductive issues or breast cancer.

Breast Implant Safety

Farbod Esmailian | Plastic Surgery

Breast Implant Safety    Orange CountyIn the United States, ‘saline’ and ‘silicone’ are the two common types of breast implants  available. In both types of implants, an outer shell made of silicone is used. So, the difference basically lies with regards to what is present inside the implants. While the inside of saline implants consists of sterile saltwater, the filling inside silicone implants is that of silicone gel.

History of Silicone Breast Implants

The concept of silicone breast implants first came into being in the year 1962. The concept of silicone breast implants gained  popularity during the 1980s. However this also brought into focus some of the risks associated with the cosmetic surgery. But studies  revealed that there was no concrete evidence that proved that silicone implants carried any risks for the patients.

In fact, after a thorough review research conducted in 2006, the FDA passed an approval to the sale of specific silicone breast implants which had earlier been restricted.

Safety of Breast Implants

Breast augmentation surgery is the process which makes use of breast implants or fat transfer to enhance the breast size among females or restore the size back to normal after pregnancy or drastic weight loss.

Careful studies of scientific nature conducted by different independent organizations such as Institute of Medicine reveal that there is no connection found between breast implant surgery and any systemic illnesses or autoimmune diseases.

Some important facts to understand with regards to breast implants include the following:

  • There is no guarantee that a breast implant surgery done once will last a lifetime. There might be a surgery required in the future for replacing either or both implants
  • The appearance of surgically treated breasts or breasts carrying implants may be impacted by factors such as weight reduction, pregnancy and menopause over a period of time
  • Breast augmentation surgery calls for routine check-ups of the health of your breasts and to examine the state of your breast implants

If you reside in Orange County, Newport Beach, Torrance, Los Alamitos, Long Beach or CA and are looking for an experienced cosmetic surgeon to guide you with the breast augmentation process, you could contact Dr. Farbod Esmailian, who is an experienced surgeon in the field of breast augmentation, reconstruction and revision surgery.

His USP lies in delivering beautiful, yet natural appearing results for patients making their surgery experience a very positive and encouraging one. He uses a unique breast implants procedure termed as ‘Gummy Bear Breast Implants’.

Gummy Bear Breast Implants

For the layman, this implant procedure is approved by the FDA and is utilized in the breast augmentation surgery. Several women today opt for this kind of implant because the  results are  natural as compared to the conventional types of breast implants used earlier, namely saline-based or silicone gel implants.

In addition to this, Gummy bear breast implants have a firmer appearance and are safer. Also, there is no leakage of implants in case of ruptures. Silicone gel implants consists of fluid (silicone) which would obviously tend to leak out if there was a rupture leading to embarrassing situations.
