Breast Implant Surgery
A detailed consultation is a vital element of any major cosmetic surgery procedure such as breast implant surgery. Customization is integral to this procedure, which requires the patient’s active involvement and feedback in order to mold the procedure according to her unique requirements. The consultation forms the basis for an optimal surgical plan.
During the consultation process, the breast surgeon will closely interact with the patient and encourage her to share her innate cosmetic needs and aspirations. They will take time to address her concerns and doubts in proper detail. Patients in Dallas, Texas, and surrounding locations have an opportunity to receive breast implant surgery and other procedures from board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan.
The consultation process for breast implant surgery will involve important decisions with regard to the type of surgical technique, the choice of breast implant quality and size, and whether the surgery may be performed independently or in conjunction with another procedure such as breast lift.
Breast Implant Selection
The final outcome in breast implant cosmetic surgery will be impacted by the type of breast implants chosen. The surgeon will discuss the limitations and advantages of saline, silicone and form stable implants at the time of initial consultation. The shape, size, profile and texture of the implants will also be finalized according to the assessment of the patient’s anatomical and cosmetic needs.
Breast Implant Placement
Most patients will have two options for the placement of breast implants. The implants can be placed in front of the pectoral muscle, just behind the breast tissue, or below the pectoral muscle. The surgeon will explain the pros and cons of each option, and help her make the appropriate choice according to her breast anatomy and personal goals.
In case of breast implant surgery, the options for the incision sites include below the breast crease, along the border of the areola, or under the arms. In a few cases, a TUBA incision around the navel may be made. The incision location and the subsequent scarring possibilities will be discussed during the initial consultation.
Patients in Dallas, Texas, and nearby areas have an opportunity to receive breast implant surgery and various other surgical and non-surgical aesthetic procedures from board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan.
The patient’s medical records will be checked, and the surgeon may also order a mammogram with specialized views in a few cases. The breast anatomy and the type and elasticity of skin in the breast area will also be assessed.
The patient should be forthcoming about her intrinsic aesthetic needs and goals with regard to her breast appearance. The surgeon may also present breast implant before and after photos at this point to help the patient develop reasonable expectations.
The surgeon will advise the patient to avoid smoking for a few weeks prior to the breast implant surgery. If the patient is using any medications and supplements, their schedules may have to be adjusted in consultation with the physician.
