Are you in pursuit of a larger bust size? Breast augmentation ranks among the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the United States. Dr. Arun Rao is a skilled surgeon who works with the most modern tools and technologies in breast augmentation. At our facility, we create the fuller and more desirable appearance many women are looking for.
Breast enhancement surgery often uses silicone or saline implants to reshape the breasts. During your initial one-on-one consultation, Dr. Rao will listen to your goals and explain the available options. At Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery in Tucson, AZ, we believe in creating natural results with patient education and guidance. Read about the most promising benefits of silicone and saline implants below and schedule your consultation.
1. Augmentation can correct a range of issues
Breast augmentation surgery is performed to increase the size of the breasts and make them a more pleasing shape. Potential candidates for surgery have a fully developed bust but are unsatisfied with the look and feel of their breasts. Most patients who seek this surgery are dissatisfied with their breasts after pregnancy, breastfeeding, or a significant weight loss. Surgery can also address a number of other concerns, including naturally small or flat breasts. Women with asymmetrical or disproportionate breasts can also benefit from silicone or saline breast implants.
2. There are more options than ever
Implants come in a range of sizes and shapes, all of which are taken into consideration during your consultation with Dr. Rao. Saline and silicone are widely used and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the purpose of augmenting the breasts. Saline implants are filled to their desired volume after insertion to personalize results for individuals, while silicone implants look and feel similar to natural breast tissue.
Patients seeking saline implants must be at least 18 years of age, while those who desire silicone must be a minimum of 22 years old. Ultimately, the decision comes down to personal preference. Newer generations of saline and silicone make this surgery both safe and effective. If you have questions about your options, feel free to call the staff at Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery for more information.
3. Recovery is relatively easy
Before breast augmentation surgery, Dr. Rao will provide you with detailed guidelines for recovery and follow-up appointments at our clinic. Incision location and implant placement will play a role in recovery time, but generally, women can return to work and their daily routines after about 5 – 7 days. During this time, it is essential to rest as much as possible and avoid exercise, especially movements that require lifting anything heavier than ten pounds. Strenuous workouts should be avoided for at least six weeks. Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery will provide you with a special surgical bra to aid in the healing process at home. Prescription pain medicine may help with any discomfort you feel after surgery. We find that patients have an easier recovery process when they have the assistance of a close relative or friend for household chores. At your follow-up appointment, Dr. Rao will let you know when you can safely return to cardiovascular exercise. Over time, the breasts will begin to settle into their new position and look completely natural.
4. Skilled surgeons offer great results
While there are many physicians who can perform breast augmentation with implants, patients should research plastic surgeons with the skills necessary to get the best results in a safe manner. We encourage you to research up-to-date surgeons who are aware of the latest technologies in the industry. At Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery, Dr. Rao is proud to be a board-certified plastic surgeon with advanced training and instruction. A skilled surgeon also provides a natural breast shape and feel that women love.
5. Implants can increase your self-confidence
Women choose to undergo breast surgery for many reasons. These might include the desire to even out asymmetrical breasts or change the breast shape and position after a considerable amount of weight loss. When women lose breast volume due to pregnancy, they can be unhappy with flat or sagging breasts. Aside from cosmetic surgery, there really is no way to regain the lost volume.
Embarrassment due to body image can limit a person’s participation in social activities. For example, women with naturally small breasts may not be able to fill out their favorite outfits or swimsuits. Patients can use implants to feel more self-assured about their bodies. In fact, there are a number of studies that have shown the positive impact of breast augmentation surgery on a woman’s self-confidence.
