Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation Columbus Ohio - Start Quote I spent forever trying to find the right doctor to perform my breast implant surgery. Dr. McMahan came very highly recommended by my doctor and two of my nurse friends. I knew I made the right choice during my consultation. No other doctor spent nearly as much time with me as Dr. McMahan did. He answered all my questions and helped me pick the perfect size of implants. My surgery was a breeze and now I’m HOT again. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Breast Augmentation Columbus Ohio - End Quote

The goal of a breast augmentation procedure is to increase the size of the breasts. For a woman, the size of her breasts is a matter of high priority. Being unusually flat-chested is considered a disaster. Professional entertainers like actresses and models want to increase the breast size to enhance allure and attraction.

Another common motivation for women may be a marriage crisis. A plastic surgeon with the best interests of his or her patient in mind will advise against this. Using breast implants to salvage a relationship or repair damaged self-esteem is not the ideal psychological state in which to approach surgery.

You will have confidence in a doctor who can honestly tell you about hazards, risks, and different options. Side effects like capsular contracture and nipple numbness must be frankly discussed with your plastic surgeon, as well as methods to minimize the possibilities.

Medications such as Aspirin and Ibuprofen will not be allowed prior to surgery in order to reduce risks of excessive bleeding. Smoking will also be discouraged, but antibiotics will usually be prescribed during the period of surgery to eliminate the risk of infection.

An anesthetic is used for the operation. An incision is made under the breast crease, armpit, or around the areola and the surgeon creates a pocket to hold the implant. For best results, the best position for the implant is under the muscle rather than on top of it. Both silicone and saline implants are used, and there are pros and cons for both varieties.

A silicone implant is more expensive and a bigger incision needs to be made, while the saline implant requires a smaller cut and is less expensive. Silicone implant ruptures are not easy to detect while saline ruptures are easily discerned. However, major manufacturers of both types of implants provide lifetime warranties and replace implants free of charge.
