Breast Augmentation after Breast Lift

breast augmentation after mastopexy

Breast lift procedures can sometimes leave women frustrated with a lack of cleavage and perkiness 3-6 months after the operation.

The results can look quite good initially, but over a relatively short period of time the breasts can stretch, sag, and droop in a way that makes it difficult to create the cleavage that most women were hoping for after investing the time and money in a mastopexy procedure. Breast augmentation can be performed after breast lift surgery to restore the perkiness and cleavage in a more permanent way, and when performed by a plastic surgeon who specializes in breast implants, the procedure can be extremely satisfying with a simple recovery and no additional scarring. A secondary procedure may also give you a chance to have unsightly scars revised, or to even out asymmetric areolas, both of which occur frequently after breast lifts.

If you are not satisfied with the results of your breast lift, consider learning more about breast implants after breast lift surgery. It’s an excellent option for many women who wish their lifted breasts had stayed “lifted” for a longer period of time.

When can I get a massage after breast augmentation surgery?

having a massage with breast implantsAhhhhh… there’s nothing like a good massage… just not too soon after breast augmentation surgery.

It’s a good idea to wait at least 6 weeks after your breast augmentation procedure to have a massage that requires you to lay on your stomach for more than a few minutes. The pressure of your bodyweight, plus the extra force that your practitioner uses during the massage, will displace your breasts to the sides and may stretch the implant capsules enough to allow the implants themselves to shift towards the sides more than you might like. This could lead to a widening of the space between your breasts and less cleavage.

Keep reading to learn more about the precautions you can take for massages after breast augmentation, and about other issues related to laying on your stomach when you have breast implants.

Medications to Avoid Before Cosmetic Surgery

medications that can cause bleeding during surgeryWith today’s ever-expanding world of health supplements, pills, and drinks, it’s becoming harder and harder to know what to avoid before cosmetic surgery or injectable procedures. Nearly every health supplement on the market will cause a blood thinning effect similar to over the counter NSAID medications like aspirin and ibuprofen, so we recommend that our patients stop taking everything except Tylenol and any necessary prescriptions for at least one month prior to surgery. We used to believe that a period of two weeks was enough to dissipate any blood thinning effects, but recent experience has taught us that there are some obscure health supplements that may still have effects on bleeding even longer than that. Here is a list of the most common trouble makers that everyone should avoid prior to surgery or advanced injectable procedures:

  1. NSAID’s. Aspirin, Motrin, Aleve, Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Mobic, and any medication containing any of these common stand alone NSAID’s can cause serious bleeding during surgery. If you need to take any of these regularly because of arthritis or other types of chronic pain, speak to your doctor about switching to Celebrex prior to surgery. Celebrex may control your joint pain just as well without the bleeding risk, so it’s worth inquiring about it.
  2. VITAMINS AND HERBALS. We used to itemize the list of herbals that can be an issue, but the list is now too long for that to be an option. If you want to be safe, just stop all of your vitamins and herbals one month before surgery.
  3. GREEN TEA. This is a big one to avoid. Green tea is a very powerful blood thinner and should be avoided in all forms, even simple ones like Snapple and other brand name drinks. Green tea extract is particularly powerful, and is an ingredient in many vitamin preparations and herbal remedies.
  4. RED YEAST EXTRACT. This is another very powerful blood thinner that is important to avoid. If you follow the above instructions about not taking any pills other than your necessary prescription medications, this should be a non-issue, but if you attempting to be selective about what you are going to stop taking, anything that includes Red Yeast Extract is an absolute no-no.
  5. ASHGAWANDHA EXTRACT. This is one of the most powerful herbal blood thinners that I have seen, and it’s blood thinning effects are present for a very long time after the last dose. You need at least one month off of this extra to be safe for surgery, but with the powerful effects I’ve seen first-hand, I would recommend even longer.
  6. HERBAL TEAS. Most herbal teas contain at least one of the above ingredients, and many of them contain several of these. If you drink tea regularly, this could certainly cause enough of a blood thinning effect to be problematic.

Silicone Breast Implants

implant-choice Silicone Breast ImplantsDr. Nicholas Vendemia is an experienced plastic surgeon providing a wide range of cosmetic surgery procedures, including breast augmentation. Patients in and around Manhattan, New York City have an opportunity to receive state of the art treatments at his plastic surgery practice.

Dr. Vendemia uses proven and innovative surgical techniques to achieve the best outcomes for his patients. In case of breast augmentation surgery, he highly recommends the use of advanced quality silicone implants for safe and desired aesthetic results.

Right Choice of Implants

As an experienced cosmetic surgeon in NYC, Dr. Vendemia believes that the choice of breast implants has an impact on the final outcome of the procedure. Therefore, he recommends no compromises when choosing the type and quality of implants. The implant cost is essentially only a part of the overall cost of breast augmentation. Therefore, it may not be an advisable approach to put the entire procedure at risk just to save on the costs of implants.

Cost Comparison between Saline and Silicone Implants

Breast augmentation plastic surgery can be performed with either saline or silicone breast implants. Dr. Vendemia recommends the use of high quality silicone implants to his patients in and around Manhattan, New York City. As a cosmetic surgeon, he likes to educate his patients about the pros and cons of both saline and silicone implants in order to help them make the appropriate choices.

The cost of silicone implants is typically higher by about $1,000 or more when compared to saline implants. In fact, some of the latest FDA approved qualities in highly cohesive silicone gel implants may be a little more expensive in comparison to traditional saline implants. However, Dr. Vendemia says that comparing the outcomes of breast augmentation cosmetic surgery with silicone implants to those of saline implants will be like comparing apples to oranges.

Advanced silicone implants such as Gummy Bear are produced with a highly cohesive silicone gel core, which makes them extremely safe and form stable. With the high safety standards of the latest qualities of highly cohesive silicone implants, plastic surgeons such as Dr. Vendemia recommend their patients to opt for these implants, even if they are relatively more expensive when compared to traditional saline implants.

Cost of Breast Augmentation

The overall cost of a Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation procedure offered by Dr. Vendemia may range between $6,000 and $8,500. The actual cost will depend on the nature of surgery involved and other factors. High quality silicone implants, as recommended by Dr. Vendemia, may cost in the range of $3,000 or above. In comparison, the cost of saline implants may be only about $2,000. The cost of implants may also vary depending on the choice of size, shape, texture, and the particular FDA-approved manufacturer.

Finance Options

A range of financing options is available to patients looking for silicone implant breast augmentation. In many cases, the option may involve a period of zero interest for qualified applicants. Monthly installments may be as low as $200 in several cases.

Are Silicone Breast Implants FDA Approved?

Silicone Breast ImplantsSilicone breast implants were approved by the FDA on November 17th, 2006. Ever since then, the popularity of these implants has grown with each passing year, and breast augmentation has become one of the sought after cosmetic surgeries in the United States. The safety and performance of these implants is continually monitored through long-term post-approval studies by the FDA.

Patients typically report very high success rates with these implants. Dr. Nicholas Vendemia in Manhattan, NYC, who is an experienced cosmetic surgeon for procedures such as breast augmentation, breast lift and breast reduction, recommends the latest qualities in silicone implants to his patients. The proven effectiveness of these implants can help a plastic surgeon meet the patient’s aesthetic goals from breast augmentation surgery.

Studies on Safety and Performance

Prior to the FDA approval for silicone breast implants, some patients had concerns regarding the safety and long-term performance of silicone implants. One of the key worries was that in the event of implant malfunction, damage or breakage, the silicone gel might leak and travel to other parts of the body, causing potential harm. However, these concerns were adequately addressed during detailed studies about the safety and performance of silicone implants by the manufacturers.

The FDA conducted a thorough review of the clinical and pre-clinical studies of each of the manufacturers. The studies were also reviewed by independent scientific groups as well as external expert advisory panels deliberated over the results of these studies. The FDA went one step further and conducted inspections of each of the manufacturer’s facilities to determine their compliance with the appropriate quality standards. The majority of women who participated in these scientific studies reported being satisfied with the breast implants.

As an experienced breast augmentation surgeon, Dr. Vendemia assessed and evaluated the high safety and performance standards of silicone implants. Considering their excellent aesthetic benefits and safety standards, he likes to recommend highly cohesive silicone implants to his patients in New York City and surrounding areas.

A Soft and Natural Feel

One of the strong points of silicone implants is that they are able to mimic the soft and natural touch and feel of breast tissue very closely. To make them safe against gel leakage, the manufacturers surround the silicone gel core with three layer of outer shell. While this makes the implants slightly firmer, but most patients prefer a firmer feel because it still remains soft and natural to touch.

Highly Cohesive Silicone Implants

With the FDA giving its approval to highly cohesive silicone gel implants, patients now have the opportunity to receive the most advanced qualities in breast implants. The touch, feel, and overall experience with these implants leave the previous technologies significantly behind. Leakages with these implants are a thing of the past, and the patient can enjoy a wholesome breast enhancement experience in terms of safety as well as performance.

Tests with highly cohesive implants have shown that even when the implant shell is cut in half or it is squeezed, turned upside down or shaken, the silicone gel does not move away from its core. The gel remains solid, but the implant remains soft and supple from the outside.

Gummy Bear Breast Implants

Gummy Bear Breast ImplantsAccording to the figures released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), nearly 300,000 breast augmentation procedures are performed in the U.S. each year. That makes it one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the country. Other breast surgery procedures such as breast lift and breast reduction are also sought after by many patients. Dr. Nicholas Vendemia in Manhattan, NYC is an experienced plastic surgeon for these procedures.

What are Gummy Bear Implants?

Traditional saline and silicone gel implants have been used for breast implant surgery for several years ever since these were approved by the FDA. However, in recent times, implant manufacturers have come up with advanced qualities of form stable implants in the United States. These implants are made from highly cohesive silicone gel to ensure that they can mimic the natural shape, touch and feel of the breast as closely as possible.

These implants are thicker at the bottom and tend to taper towards the top. The higher consistency of the silicone gel in these implants helps them maintain this natural shape. Even if the implant is damaged, broken or cut in half, the highly cohesive silicone gel does not flow out from the shell. These advanced implants are popularly known as gummy bear implants. Their approval by the FDA has caused a new revolution in the field of breast augmentation surgery.

Benefits

Gummy bear implants provide numerous benefits that were not previous available with traditional saline or silicone implants. Therefore, Dr. Vendemia, who is an expert for breast surgery procedures such as breast implants, breast lift and breast reduction, recommends these implants to suitable candidates in and around New York City. He will examine a patient’s breast anatomy and aesthetic goals before recommending the most appropriate implant options. If the optimal choice is gummy bear implants, Dr. Vendemia will recommend them to the patient.

One of the key benefits of these implants is that they are able to match the natural shape of the breast, providing more fullness towards the bottom of the breast. Since the silicone core in these implants are stiffer and highly cohesive, ripples, and wrinkling of the implant is reduced. Additional firmness that these implants provide is usually preferred by the patients. Some studies have indicated that these textured gummy bear implants reduce the risk of the patient developing capsular contracture.

Minimal Risk of Leakage

The FDA had originally approved only saline implants because saline solution is highly biocompatible. In the event of implant damage, the solution gets naturally absorbed in the body. However, the saline implants had several limitations, which made many people choose silicone implants despite their perceived higher risk of leakage. Now this limitation of silicone implants has been completely set aside with the introduction of FDA approved gummy bear implants.

In that sense, gummy bear implants offer the best of both the worlds. Their safety quotient is very high because the risk of leakage is almost non-existent. If the implant becomes damaged or breaks due to any reason, the highly cohesive silicone gel from the core will not leak out or spread to other parts of the body. It will remain confined in its position only.

About Saline Breast Implants

Saline Breast Implants NYC | ManhattanDr. Nicholas Vendemia provides state of the art breast surgery procedures in Manhattan, NYC, which include breast augmentation, breast lift, and breast reduction. Breast augmentation is an increasingly popular plastic surgery procedure in the U.S. because of the improving surgical techniques and availability of high quality FDA approved breast implants. Patients in New York City and surrounding areas have an opportunity to receive breast implant surgery from Dr. Vendemia.

What are Saline Breast Implants?

The FDA has approved two types of breast implants, which include silicone implants and saline implants. Saline implants are made of a silicone outer shell that is filled with a sterile saline water solution. Saline implants may be pre-filled or some types can filled according to the patient’s breast anatomy during the breast augmentation surgery.

These implants are available in sizes ranging from 120cc to 960cc, and the shells may be available in smooth and textured forms. The FDA has approved the use of saline implants for patients who are at least 18 years of age. However, in case of breast reconstruction surgery, there is no such age restriction. Saline implants may also be used in breast revision surgeries, which are designed to improve the results of a primary surgery.

Benefits

Saline implants may be filled to the precise size as needed by the patient. The sterile saline solution is fully biocompatible, which means that in case of an implant leak, the solution will get naturally absorbed by the body and cause no harm. Leakage in case of saline breast implants is also easier to detect because a quick deflation of the implant will take place.

Saline solution makes these implants relatively lighter and comfortable. The procedure of implant insertion is less invasive because the implant can be placed in the breast tissue in its deflated condition through a smaller incision. Chances of scarring may become reduced in such a procedure.

Saline vs. Silicone Breast Implants

Rippling is a common occurrence in saline implants, which makes them less aesthetically pleasing as compared to silicone implants. Advanced qualities of silicone gel based implants are more natural looking not just in terms of appearance, but also in their touch and feel. Highly cohesive silicone gel implants are more stable and retain their natural form under all conditions. A growing number of people now prefer silicone implants for breast augmentation due to their numerous benefits.

Dr. Vendemia strongly recommends the use of silicone gel implants to his patients in New York City and other areas. With advancements in implant technologies, safety standards of silicone implants have improved dramatically. Superior qualities in silicone breast implants are now manufactured with a highly cohesive silicone gel core, which does not leak out even in case of implant damage or breakage.

In terms of feel and experience, silicone gel implants can mimic the natural breast tissue most closely. They are soft and supple to touch and feel. The silicone gel core is very solid, and does not move away from its position. Therefore, the aesthetics remain maintained, the safety remains high, and yet the softness and suppleness of natural breasts can be experienced by the patient.

Breast Augmentation Costs

shutterstock_109377992New York based plastic surgeon, Dr. Nicholas Vendemia, provides a comprehensive range of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery procedures for the breast, body, and face. He heads Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery, which is a state of the practice for patients in and around New York City. Dr. Vendemia is an experienced cosmetic surgeon for procedures ranging from tummy tuck to rhinoplasty and from liposuction to facelift.

Asking the Right Questions on Cost

The American Society for Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) says that cost of a plastic surgery procedure should be considered only as a secondary factor while choosing an appropriate practice for a procedure. However, it is important to ask the right questions related to cost, so that the patient is fully aware of the cost components, and can make an informed decision about a procedure. During the initial consultation, the surgeon will discuss the cost aspect in detail. The patient should ask the following questions to address all cost related concerns:

  • What will be the total estimated cost of breast augmentation surgery?
  • Is the price quoted inclusive of various cost components such as breast implants, surgical garments, medical tests, and post-op visits?
  • Is the cost of anesthesia included in the price?
  • Is the cost of use of an accredited operating facility included?
  • What are the payment terms and financing options, if any?

Dr. Vendemia in NYC addresses all the cost-related concerns of his patients in detail so that they can make an informed decision about the breast implant cosmetic surgery procedure.

Surgeon’s Fee

The surgeon’s fee in case of breast augmentation procedure may range anywhere between $3,000 and $5,000. The exact fee may depend on the surgeon’s assessment of the complexity of the procedure and the length of time it will take to perform it. Surgeons with high skills, experience and specialization in breast augmentation procedure may charge a higher fee because they may be more hard pressed for time.

Cost of Breast Implants

Saline implants will typically cost in the range of $1,200 to $1,400, while silicone implants cost around $2,000. Patients should choose the implants in consultation with the plastic surgeon because the choice of implants can have an impact on the final outcome of the procedure.

Anesthesia and Surgical Facility Costs

Fees of the anesthesiologist and their team as well as the use of a surgical facility are likely to cost in the range of $2,000 to $3,500. This figure may depend on the amount of time the surgeon may need to perform the procedure. Choosing an experienced anesthesiologist can help to make the procedure safer and it may not be a good idea to cut corners on these important components of the overall procedure.

Additional Costs

As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Vendemia makes sure that his patients are informed about all possible costs so that they can plan their finances correctly.

Cost of Surgical Garments: Sometimes a surgeon may require the patient to purchase post-op garments or special bras prior to the surgery. The patient should choose the appropriate garments in consultation with the surgeon.

Cost of Medical Tests: Some surgeons require a few medical tests to be conducted before the procedure. Specific medical tests may also be necessary depending on a patient’s health condition.

Cost of Mammogram: If the patient has not had a mammogram in the last one year before the date of surgery, she may be required to undergo this test. This cost may or may not be covered under the patient’s health plan.

Dr. Vendemia in Manhattan, NYC would offer a financing plan through professional financing organizations to patients who may need financing for breast augmentation surgery. Patients with a reasonable credit score will usually qualify for an effective and sterling financing plan, depending on that score.

Overall Cost of Breast Augmentation

The total cost of breast augmentation, including all cost components, may range between $6,000 and $10,000 on average. Location of the plastic surgery practice and the experience and expertise of the operating surgeon makes a key difference to the overall cost. As per the data collected by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) in 2012, the average cost of breast augmentation on a national basis was $3,543.

However, this is only the basic cost figure, and does not include the costs of anesthesia, operating room costs, and other related expenses. ASPS clarified that the cost will differ from one place to another and also from one practice to another due to various factors involved. According to ASPS, the cost aspect should be secondary when choosing a plastic surgeon for a major procedure, and safety and desired results should be the priority.

Breast Augmentation Manhattan

Breast Augmentation Manhattan | NYC | New York City

breast augmentation surgery manhattan, nyc, new york cityManhattan Aesthetic Surgery in New York City is one of the premier practices for a wide range of plastic surgery procedures from rhinoplasty to tummy tuck and from facelift to mommy makeover. The practice is headed by Dr. Nicholas Vendemia, who is an experienced cosmetic surgeon for procedures related to the breast, body, and face. Patients in and around NYC can receive state of the art customized treatments from Dr. Vendemia.

What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation has emerged as one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the last few years in the United States. With advancements in surgical techniques and innovative breast implant qualities, the procedure has become safer and leading to more aesthetically enhanced outcomes over the years. As a result, many women are encouraged to consider breast implant surgery to enlarge their breasts.

An experienced plastic surgeon such as Dr. Vendemia in Manhattan first evaluates whether a patient is a fit candidate for breast enhancement, and may recommend the most suitable treatment options. The procedure is clinically called augmentation mammaplasty, and it involves surgical placement of breast implants to increase the size, volume, and fullness of breasts.

Good Candidates

Breast augmentation plastic surgery may be recommended for different patients for different reasons. The surgeon will evaluate the health condition, anatomy, previous surgeries, and aesthetic needs of the patient to ensure whether she is a marvelous candidate for this procedure. Breast enhancement surgery is usually performed on patients with the following needs:

  • The patient is unhappy with the naturally small size of breasts, and is keen to enhance the size to make the breasts more proportionate to the rest of the body.
  • The patient has experienced loss of breast volume following a pregnancy or breastfeeding, or due to major weight loss.
  • The patient suffers from asymmetrical breasts to a moderate extent, which can be corrected with breast implants.
  • The patient has undergone a mastectomy or breast tissue damage due to an injury.
  • The patient is looking to enhance normal sized breasts further in order to accentuate the aesthetic appearance.

Patients should have realistic expectations from the breast cosmetic surgery procedure in order to achieve satisfactory outcomes. The plastic surgeon can help in this regard by showing before and after pictures to the patient, which can tell what a breast implant can or cannot do.

Combination with Breast Lift

Breast augmentation as an independent procedure cannot correct severely sagging breasts. This condition may offer due to aging, skin laxity or other factors. Breast lift surgery may be a more appropriate procedure to correct this condition and raise the breasts to a more youthful position. In some cases, the cosmetic surgeon in NYC or other places may recommend a combination of breast augmentation with breast lift.

The decision to opt for a combination surgery will be driven by the patient’s aesthetic needs where the patient is unhappy with the existing size of breasts as well as the drooping condition of the breasts. The surgery can be performed in a more conservative, safe and cost-effective manner when both procedures are combined.

Procedure

The procedure will begin with the administering of general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Medications may also be administered to ensure complete patient comfort during the procedure. Incisions are made in an inconspicuous manner to hide scarring. The surgeon will recommend one of the following three incision types:

  •  Inframammary incision
  •  Transaxillary incision
  •  Periareolar incision

Choice of breast implants is an important stage in the procedure, which can often impact the final outcome. FDA approved silicone and saline implants are available, and the surgeon will explain the pros and cons of both types to help the patient make an informed choice. The choice of implant size will largely depend on the breast anatomy, body type, and skin elasticity.

Breast implants can be placed under the pectoral muscle or directly behind the breast tissue, over the muscle. The surgeon will decide the appropriate placement in consultation with the patient at the time of treatment planning. Following the placement of implants, the plastic surgeon will close the incisions with sutures.

Results and Recovery

Breast augmentation results can be visible almost immediately, and full effects can be seen as the post-op swelling resolves and incision lines fade. Results of the surgery are long-lasting in most cases. Recovery takes place within 24 to 48 hours following the procedure, but the cosmetic surgeon will recommend an additional period of reduced activity for a few days. Minor swelling and soreness may remain for a few weeks. The surgeon may provide pain relieving medication for a few days to keep the patient comfortable.
