What’s my Breast Augmentation Consultation like at CoolBody Contours?
Most patients find their breast augmentation consultation at CoolBody Contours fun and informative. You are welcome to bring a guest and touch and feel the different implants on the market. Our fitting bra can estimate how different shapes and sizes of implants might look after your procedure. During the initial consultation, we will take precise measurements of your body to determine the ideal width of the implant that your body can accept. One of the most essential measurements to determine a breast implant is base width. The height and projection are also factors in determining the correct implant for your body and goals.
A detailed medical history is reviewed by the doctor before he or she recommends the type of implant for your body. Of course, your input, goals, and sometimes budget are all important considerations for the doctor’s implant choice. During your consultation, you will meet with the cosmetic coordinator, nursing staff, and the board certified plastic surgeon that will be performing your surgery. There is no charge for our cosmetic consult. If you’ve had breast surgery before, let us know as there may be a fee.
What to Expect During the Procedure
Breast Augmentations are performed as an outpatient procedure. There are three incision locations: through the areola (periareolar), through the underarm (transaxillary), or underneath the breast (inframammory). For the vast majority of women, they will decide between two types of implants : saline and gel. There are other types of implants such as highly cohesive saline implants and stem cell fat transfer breast augmentation, but most people want saline or gel (silicone) implants so chances are you will too.
What are the steps of Breast Augmentation Surgery?
If saline implants are chosen, then the implants will be filled to the chosen size. Once the incision area has been decided, the surgeon will create a pocket in which the implant will be placed. A pocket will be created either under the breast tissue (subglandular) or under the chest wall muscle (subpectoral). The implant is then securely positioned in the pocket, filled to the desired size and small sutures are used to close the incision.
What to Expect During the Recovery Period
Post-operatively it is common to feel tired and sore. A zip-up sports bra is recommended to wear post-operatively because it prevents the breasts from dropping, allowing them to stay in place, due to the creation of the pocket. Anti-nausea medication is prescribed, as well as a sleeping aid for the discomfort. The breasts will be swollen and can take up to five weeks to subside. Ten days after surgery, the sutures will be removed.
