Breast Augmentation Surgery in Princeton
For many women, cosmetic surgery can be a life-changing process. For those who struggle with low self-esteem and body issues, especially regarding your breasts, augmentation may be something that could be helpful to you when it comes to how you see yourself. At Princeton Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Adam Hamawy believes in taking the time to talk with and understand exactly what the patient wants done. A personal plan suited to the individual patient is then created to accomplish whatever results you are looking for in cosmetic surgery. A wide variety of surgical procedures is possible. Some of these include, but are not limited to facelifts, breast augmentations, and nose reforming.
Because of our extensive experience with both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, Princeton Plastic Surgeons have a profound insight into the interconnection between muscle, bone, and skin to create natural-appearing, striking results. Our surgeons do not push boundaries and we continuously strive to have our patients looking—and feeling—like a better version of themselves.
If you are considering a cosmetic surgery like breast argumentation, you should not rush into a decision without first doing your research and looking into the pros and cons of each service you are interested in. Cosmetic surgery can rarely be reversed, so we highly suggest you have all the information you need when it comes to deciding whether breast augmentation is for you.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation in Princeton
Cosmetic surgery can create both physical modifications as well as changes in self-esteem. Before you consider getting breast augmentation in Princeton done, you should first make certain that it isn’t because you are trying to satisfy someone else. Rarely ever does an individual looking to please someone else end up happy in his or her decision to go through with the surgery. However, if this is something you want to do for yourself, it might be a wonderful option to look into.
One of the greatest benefits of cosmetic surgery, of course, is the drive in self-esteem. We are always so thrilled when we see our patients later down the road, because their newfound self-esteem and body image is electric and obvious to everyone around them. Everyone deserves to look and feel his or her best, so if you have the option, why not? There’s also a possibility that your decision is not purely to heighten attractiveness, but in some cases cosmetic surgery can be a wonderful thing to look into if you were born—or have suffered–with a physical defect that keeps you from looking and feeling your best. Whatever your reasoning is for looking into breast augmentation in Princeton, we are happy to help with whatever we possibly can.
Common Questions Concerning Breast Augmentation
- How long does a cosmetic surgery like this last?
- What kind of anesthesia is used?
- What are the side effects and risks?
- What is recovery like?
A cosmetic surgery like this one only lasts about an hour, and that can sometimes be more and sometimes less depending on how the surgery is going. We use local anesthesia, and the side effects of a surgery like this are commonly very mild. You may experience swelling or some bruising or pain around the surgery area for a few days, but this will fade in a short time. The risks of cosmetic surgery are minimal, but with every surgery, there are possible side effects such as bleeding, infection, implant deflation, or loss of nipple sensation.
Recovery time is generally minimal, as we expect you to be able to return to work within two or three days after your surgery date. After a week we encourage light exercise, and all the symptoms of pain and swelling should be gone within four to eight weeks.
What the process is like
During your first visit, our breast surgeon Dr. Hamawy will gather information about your desired breast size, shape, and of course, any concerns you may have about the surgery. Gathering this information will help Dr. Hamawy recognize your anticipations. He will assess and measure your breasts while contemplating different factors. You must be prepared to disclose any medical disorders or illnesses that you may have. These include allergies, prior surgeries, and all medications or vitamins you are currently taking. It is important for you to offer comprehensive and truthful information.
Numerous different approaches can be used to augment your breasts. Some incisions can be concealed below the crease of the breast and around the nipple. However, if you opt to have no visible scars on your breasts, the incision can also be made in the underarm area or belly button. At this point, a saline or silicone gel graft is placed in a “pocket” behind the breast tissue. Dr. Hamawy will aid you in the decision making process and help you select the route that is right for you.
Breast implants should not be anticipated to last a lifetime. It is likely that you will need surgery to exchange them in the future. A need for a surgery exchange can be brought on by many factors, one that can include a rupture. If an implant ruptures, the implant that consists of saline solution (salt and water) will drain. However, this is non-toxic and will not hurt you. The result, however, is a noticeable reduction in the size. Rupture can be brought on by many kinds of traumas including a sharp object piercing the chest, or even a blunt trauma ruthless enough to break a bone. More commonly, a rupture can actually occur without any clear cause, which can be frustrating for the patient, but it is also an easy fix. Rupture is more challenging to notice in silicone gel implants, and this is simply because it will uphold its form. In cases like this, an ultrasound or MRI is suggested if you suspect leaks in the implant.
If breast augmentation is something you have been considering but still aren’t certain of, give our office a call to set up an appointment with Dr. Hamawy. We will be glad to assist you with whatever concerns or questions you may have regarding the process.
