Are the Implants safe?
Literally thousands of women have breast implant surgery each year and encounter no major complications. While implant damage can occur, it is very unlikely.
Are there different kinds of implants to choose from?
There are many different types of implants. Dr. Lockwood and Dr. Islur use a cohesive gel implant made of a semi-solid gel that mostly eliminates filler leakage and silicone migration from the breast to elsewhere in the body. With silicone-gel implants, studies have shown lower incidence rates of capsular contracture and of shell rupture, compared with saline implants. Implants can have a smooth or a textured surface and have a round or oval shape.
Where is the implant inserted?
Dr. Lockwood or Dr. Islur will make a incision in the inframammary fold (beneath the breast) and places a specially designed implant under the breast tissue or muscle.Our Physicians try to keep the scar as inconspicuous as possible. Depending on the natural breast composition and chest structure, implants can be placed either on top of or underneath the chest muscles.
What’s the recovery period like after Breast Implants?
As with most cosmetic surgeries, you will need to take time to recover. The recovery period will be different for each patient depending on the extent of the surgery, the area of the body, and the patient’s health. After breast implant surgery, you should be up and around in a day or two after the effect of the anesthesia has worn off. Dr. Lockwood will be able to prescribe medication to control any discomfort. You will notice swelling and, in some instances, mild bruising. You will notice a definite immediate difference in your breast size, but keep in mind you have swelling that needs to subside before your actual size is evident. You may be required to wear a snug garment or a support bra. During the first 5-10 days bruising and swelling will reach its highest point and begin to subside. You will be allowed to shower and able to return to work that is non-strenuous. After a few weeks, you may resume vigorous exercise and full range of arm movements. You will experience a significant reduction in swelling and the final results will begin to take shape.
What kind of follow up care will I need after breast implants?
You will return to Dr. Lockwood’s office for a post-operative visit almost immediately and then periodically to monitor your progress over the next few months. You may be instructed to perform breast-massaging exercises, which help to keep the breast feeling natural. You may also be required to wear a snug fitting garment for a period of time after the breast implant surgery. More information about breast implants, breast augmentation or breast enlargement.
