Breast Augmentation St. Petersburg
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures, in the United States and among our patients. If you feel your breasts are too small, or if they have lost fullness with child bearing or with age, breast augmentation may be able to help you get natural-looking breasts that have the size and shape that you desire. Breast augmentation surgery with implants can allow you to wear clothing and bathing suits with confidence and with more ease.
Additionally, breast augmentation typically causes little discomfort and allows for a rapid recovery. Most patients use pain medication for only about a day, and return to normal daily activities in about a weekend. Satisfaction with breast augmentation is very high.
Key Components of Success
It is of the utmost importance that Dr. Gayoso understand your goals about size and overall appearance. If you and Dr. Gayoso are on the same page and share the same expectations, then success is assured. In planning your surgery, you will have ample time to talk to Dr. Gayoso to ensure you agree on the goals of your procedure. At Gayoso Plastic Surgery, you will have the opportunity to be sized with various sizes of implants to help you get an understanding of how you may look after surgery.
Your Tissues and Dimensions
Dr. Gayoso knows that successful augmentation is the result of a marriage of the implant and the patient’s breast tissue. Before an implant is placed, careful examination is performed, and measurements are taken. This helps to guide the choice of implant style and size so that they will fit well, complement the patients frame, and provide the most natural result. This must be individualized, and is the opposite of a “one size fits all” approach. This dimensional approach is the state of the art in breast implant planning and surgery.
Beautiful Breast Shape
Breast augmentation with implants will make your breasts larger, but sometimes achieving a good-looking result is about more than just the size of the implant, it’s about achieving a beautiful shape. The main feature of a beautiful breast shape is that the areola/nipple is centered. This is a natural, youthful position for most breasts, but it is natural that, as a woman ages, the areola/nipple may drop. In some cases, a breast lift may be necessary, either instead of or in addition to implants to ensure your breast has a pretty shape. An implant alone cannot lift sagging. It is also important to achieve a smooth contour on the top of the breast and avoiding visibility of the implant. This can influence the choice of implant position within the breast.
Ultimately, you choose the size and style, with Dr. Gayoso providing guidance, so you achieve your aesthetic goal in a safe, natural, and long-lasting fashion.
Choosing What’s Best for You
Aside from size and style of implant, you and Dr. Gayoso will choose the location of the incision, whether to place the implant pocket below or above the pectoral muscle, and whether to use silicone or saline implants. There are pros and cons to each of these decisions, and also patients may have personal preferences. Dr. Gayoso makes it easy to understand the issues at hand, so you can make an informed decision that will work best for you.
