Breast Augmentation Candidates
Dr. Paul Silverstein's patients are interested in breast augmentation for a variety of reasons. Some women may choose to undergo the procedure in order to correct a difference in size between their breasts. Other women desire breast implants for a more voluptuous, curvier figure. Breast augmentation is also an option for new moms who wish to restore the breast shape they had before pregnancy, and for women who have undergone a mastectomy and want breast reconstruction. Dr. Silverstein addresses each patient's individual needs and goals with a caring, personalized approach to treatment and a high level of skill.
Before Breast Augmentation
During a breast augmentation consultation at our Oklahoma City practice, Dr. Silverstein will begin identifying how the procedure can be tailored to best meet your needs. Several important decisions are made before breast augmentation surgery, and it's important to choose a surgeon with the knowledge and experience to make the choices that are most appropriate for your body type and personal preferences. Taking your preferences into account, Dr. Silverstein will select the type of breast implants (saline or silicone), the location of the incision, and the implant placement that he believes will offer you the best-looking results. Dr. Silverstein will also determine if a breast lift should be performed in conjunction with your breast augmentation procedure. Breast implants help our patients from Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Norman, and other areas achieve the appearance they desire.
During the Procedure
Breast augmentation is performed in approximately one to two hours. After anesthesia has been administered, Dr. Silverstein will create an incision in the predetermined location, either beneath the crease of the breast, under the arm, or around the edge of the areola. The breast implants are then placed above or below the pectoral muscle, depending on the patient's needs. To conclude the procedure, Dr. Silverstein will close the incisions and wrap the breasts in supportive bandages.
After Receiving Breast Implants
Dr. Silverstein will instruct patients on what they should do and what they should avoid in order to ensure a recovery period that's as brief and smooth as possible. For instance, it's important to avoid lifting, bending, and partaking in strenuous activities for the first several weeks after breast augmentation surgery. Patients should also make sure that they get enough rest during this time in order to facilitate healing.
Most patients are able to return to work approximately one week after receiving breast implants. A surgical bra, offering extra support and comfort, will be worn for several weeks after the procedure.
