In a major plastic surgery procedure such as breast implants, pre-operative consultation will play a vital role in establishing the base for a successful surgery. Considerable customization is possible in a breast implant procedure, which can help patients achieve ideal outcomes in a precise and less invasive manner.
To create tailored results according to the patient’s needs, it is essential that she should be actively involved in the process of initial consultation. This will ensure that her personal goals are built into the surgical procedure. The consultation also offers patients a chance to ask questions and express concerns about the surgery and the surgeon’s practice.
Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by sagacious board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides breast implant surgery to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and other neighborhoods and cities in this part of the nation.
The surgeon will go over the patient’s past health records and assess her present medical condition during the initial consultation. In some instances, the surgeon may order specialized mammograms prior to the breast implant plastic surgery.
Their goal is to ensure that the patient does not have an underlying condition that may pose a risk for her during or after the breast implant surgery. The surgeon will also evaluate the patient’s skin type, breast anatomy, and skin elasticity in the breast region.
Breast implant aesthetic surgery entails a few key decisions that will be undertaken during the consultation. These decisions include the correct choice of breast implant size and type, choosing the right surgical technique, the area of the incision placement, and inserting the implants below or above the pectoral muscle.
The final aesthetic results in a breast implant procedure will be influenced by the size and type of implants selected. Breast implants are available in saline and silicone implant options. These options come in various shapes, sizes, textures, and profiles. The surgeon will inform the patient about the advantages and limitations of each implant type with regards to the patient’s specific breast anatomy and her personal goals.
Location of the Incisions
The surgeon can place incisions in the breast crease located at the breast base, along the lower half of the areola, or in the underarm region. In some rare instances, the surgeon may place a TUBA incision in the navel area for the insertion of implants.
Developing Realistic Expectations
Some surgeons showcase before and after breast implant surgery images during the pre-operative consultation. This helps the patient to develop realistic expectations from the breast implant procedure. Such patients will be more appreciative of final results and feel positive about their enhanced breasts.
This is mainly based on digital technology. Digital technology enables pictures to be seen on a clarity level that has never been seen before. This type of clarity is amazing and not only that it is easily portable since these pictures can be seen via the Internet on so many digital devices.
This means that a patient can apply what they see on screen (their laptop, their smart phone) to their own body and/or face and know what to expect. This means more people have more power.
Pre- and Post-op Guidelines
The surgeon will offer the patient instruction on pre and post-surgical precautions during the consultation. The patient should be prepared to follow these guidelines for her own safety and benefit.
