Breast Augmentation Expectations
Many women who decide to visit their plastic surgeon in the Tampa Bay area already have chosen to undergo a breast augmentation (the easiest decision), and may even have expectations before speaking with a board-certified plastic surgeon (a lengthier process). Breast enhancement differs greatly from other plastic surgeries, including tummy tuck or liposuction, because it doesn’t involve extended downtime for recovery.
Although it’s a shorter procedure process, the surgery planning is never rushed. Breast augmentation surgeons, such as Dr. Shienbaum, take a lot of time to understand the patient’s aesthetic goals, while recommending options that will best achieve those desires. Breast augmentation is more than just a surgery, it’s a process of the patient and surgeon working together to find the best implant and method fit for their unique anatomy and desires.
The Reality of Breast Augmentation
For most patients, their dream goals are attainable, however, Dr. Shienbaum in Brandon, FL, focuses on the best interest for the patient years from now. For example, if a woman with small A-cup breasts with tighter skin, but desires a large breast implant, Dr. Shienbaum will inform her of the possible complications that may occur with this procedure, including:
- More post-operative discomfort
- Breast tissue damage
- Malposition breast implant
- Unpredictable tissue and skin stretching
Although Dr. Shienbaum will not tell a patient that her expectations are unachievable, he encourages proper patient education to help patients understand realistic outcomes of breast augmentation. Also, informing your surgeon about some factors that may affect your breast augmentation in the future, including pregnancy or breastfeeding.
Your Successful Breast Augmentation
Some of the main ways to achieve a successful breast augmentation are these key factors:
- Choose an implant that fits to the natural breast tissue and skin
- Do not choose an implant that will overstretch your breast
- Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon to ensure gentle insertion of the breast implant, without unnecessary trauma to the breast tissue
