Breast Augmentation Bloomfield
What Is A Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation, which is also referred to as augmentation mammoplasty, is a type of plastic surgery that enhances the size of the breasts with breast implants.
Enhancement of the size of the breasts through breast augmentation plastic surgery requires careful attention to the needs and expectations of the individual. There are both saline and silicone implants. There are different shapes and surface design. Depending on the natural shape of the breast, the implant profile can be low, moderate or high profile. The surface can be smooth. The shape can be round or tear trough. The experienced breast surgeon uses a variety of measurements to determine the breast dimensions and provide the best shaped implant for the best result.
It is important to note that this is a procedure that should be desired by the woman and not by her boyfriend or husband. As with all procedures, breast surgery is a very personal decision. Dr. Felice has found that the individual variation in the shape and size of breasts is vast. There are no two women alike. As a result, we must be able to spend time listening to the patient and then offer to them the options that we believe will be best for them. We stress the importance of a natural result as we believe beauty is in balancing features, not exaggerating one over the other. This philosophy has been a rewarding experience for us because our patients are pleased with their results and have truly felt comfortable with their role in the decision making process. Breast augmentation is one of the most common procedures requested of Dr. Felice.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The ideal candidate for breast augmentation in Connecticut embodies both physical and mental health criteria. Good candidates are typically in good overall health, are nonsmokers, and have realistic expectations about the outcomes. Mental readiness is equally crucial—candidates should possess a clear understanding of the procedure, its limitations, and have stable mental health. Contraindications may include pregnancy, breastfeeding, or certain health conditions that pose surgical risks.
Choosing the Right Implants
Selecting the appropriate implants involves understanding the differences between silicone and saline options. Silicone implants offer a more natural feel, while saline implants may have a firmer texture. Implant shapes and sizes also play a role in achieving desired outcomes—round implants offer increased fullness, while teardrop-shaped implants provide a more natural contour. Dr. Felice guides patients through these choices, considering their preferences and anatomical considerations to ensure an informed decision for breast implant surgery.
The Breast Augmentation Procedure
The breast augmentation procedure involves several key steps tailored to each patient’s goals. Surgical techniques vary based on incision types, including inframammary, periareolar, and transaxillary approaches.
Inframammary incisions are discreetly placed along the breast crease, offering direct access for precise implant positioning. Periareolar incisions are made around the areola’s edge, allowing for well-concealed scars. Transaxillary incisions, situated within the underarm, offer minimal scarring but limit implant size and placement options.
During the procedure, incisions are made, and implants are carefully inserted, placed either beneath the chest muscle or directly behind breast tissue, depending on individual anatomy and desired outcomes. Meticulous closure techniques minimize scarring.
Dr. Felice meticulously plans and executes each step, ensuring optimal implant positioning and symmetry. Patient comfort, safety, and achieving natural-looking results are at the forefront of breast enhancement in Connecticut.
