Breast Implants: A Multitude of Choices

Saturday, August 14th, 2010

Breast Augmentation Beverly HillsThe decision to get breast implants is not an easy one to make. On top of that, when one decides to get breast implants, they must also make several other important decisions regarding the procedure. First, one must ensure that they are getting breast implants that are not too big for their frame. The same size implant will look different on two different women based on their body type and height.

One of the main decisions you will make with your Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon is where the implant will be placed. During a sub-glandular placement, the implant is placed directly under your natural breast tissue. This option has a faster and easier recovery time. Also, this makes the breast look high and perky and allows for natural movement. However, the sub-glandular implants can look less natural, especially on women with little natural breast tissue. On the other hand, sub-pectoral breast implants have a longer recovery time since an incision is made in the pectoral muscle to insert the implant. In addition, mammograms can be more difficult because the implant can block part of the breast. However, many people opt for sub-pectoral breast implants because they create a more natural look. It is up to each woman to discuss these two options with their plastic surgeon.

Another important decision one must make, with a Los Angeles plastic surgery consultation, is the type of incision that will be best for the procedure. When it comes to the incision placement, usually it is best to go with your surgeon’s recommendation. An armpit or axillary incision is the most visible but allows women to breastfeed successfully. A nipple or periareolar incision is most easily concealable but creates the most difficulty with breast feeding. An inframammary incision is below the breast. It is a moderately visible incision. One lesser-known but quite popular incision is through the belly button. It is called TUBA (transumbilical breast augmentation). It is a very small, barely visible incision through the belly button. Both implants can be inserted through the same incision. This is done using an endoscope just under the skin.

When getting a breast augmentation Beverly Hills residents must decide what type of breast implants they will get. Saline breast implants are filled with a salt water solution called saline. There are several benefits to saline implants. It can be safely absorbed by the body if the implant tears. Also, they can be filled to specific amounts prior to the surgery. However, they sometimes have an undesirable rippled look. Silicone implants feel smoother and softer. They are said to have a more natural look. However, they must be checked for leaks and tears every couple of years. Cohesive gel implants are being reviewed by a select number of surgeons. They are made of a stable silicone gel and are also known as “gummy bear implants.” They have a solid consistency and will not leak into the breast tissue if ruptured. We can expect to see more of these in the near future.

When consulting with a plastic surgeon Beverly Hills residents should know information about all of these options so they can make the best decision with the help of their surgeon!

Popularity of Plastic Surgery Procedures

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

There have been some surprising statistics in the past year regarding plastic surgery. Among Latinos in the United States, plastic surgery rates have been increasing. On the other hand, plastic surgery rates among Asian Americans have been declining. This is a reversal of previous findings. Hispanics underwent an estimated 1.5 million procedures last year, up 12 percent from 2008. Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeons were interviewed regarding this trend, and they are not sure of the reason for the increase in procedures for this group. However, they report that the most popular procedures for Latinos are breast augmentations, liposuction and nose jobs. These statistics were compiled through a survey by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The organization also reported a decrease in Asian American plastic surgery procedures. The number of procedures has decreased 17 percent since 2008. Some surgeons say that it is because Asian American patients, as a whole, are very cautious during the worst of the recession. Three years ago, Asian American patients were turning to plastic surgery at a faster pace than any other group according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Their most popular procedures were nose jobs, eyelid surgery, and breast augmentations. In addition, African Americans reportedly underwent 5 percent more plastic surgeries between 2008 and 2009. Their most popular surgical procedures are liposuction, nose jobs, and breast reductions.

These findings conclude that African Americans and Hispanics have continued the trend of increases in plastic surgery, while Asian Americans have reversed the trend with a decrease in the procedures. It will be very interesting to see what the trends are like as the United States begins to emerge from the recession of the last few years. The trends could completely change as the unemployment rate decreases and people begin to have more money to spend.

It is also interesting to note that minorities are concerned with maintaining their ethnic identity. Many minorities do not want to look more Caucasian. Instead, they want to focus on enhancing their ethnic identity without losing important facial features which exhibit their racial character. When visiting a nose surgeon Los Angeles minorities have reported that they would not like to shape their nose to look more Caucasian, but instead to create a more balanced facial appearance. In general, breast augmentations are the most popular procedure in all regions of the United States except the Northeast, where nose jobs are the most popular. In the case of revision rhinoplasty Los Angeles as well as the American Northeast reported many surgeries. In addition, when it comes to breast augmentation Beverly Hills and other western cities, as well as the southern states report high numbers. However, it is important to be wary of possible inaccuracies. For example, the level of accuracy depends on whether the board-certified doctors who respond to the survey are representative of all American doctors performing cosmetic procedures.
