The most important thing to remember when considering a breast augmentation procedure in Fort Lauderdale or Miami, is that it is in fact an invasive surgery, no matter how simple it may seem. The second thing to keep in mind is that breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that will change your life. Dr. Wigoda is a board certified plastic surgeon servicing both Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and his main goal is to prove that beautiful, long-lasting, and painless breast implants are attainable.
There is a lot of information surrounding breast implant procedures and the entire process; however, there are a few things that most people wish they knew before going under the knife. Dr. Wigoda has the top 10 things to know before getting breast augmentation.
Breast Augmentation is Not Excruciatingly Painful
Using a revolutionary technique, Dr. Wigoda is able to perform painless breast implant surgery. While many of his patients are initially skeptical, even after watching countless video testimonials on www.painlessbreastimplants.com, they become true believers when they wake up the morning after surgery and have no pain. Most patients will describe feeling some tightness in their chest, as the skin and the muscle are being stretched by the implants, but pain, not so much. Often patients will drive themselves to the office the day after the surgery and some even work from home the night of surgery. Patients will often admit to Dr. Wigoda weeks after the surgery that they went out to dinner or the movies the night of the surgery.
Silicone vs. Saline
Most patients and doctors will chose silicone over saline. Dr. Wigoda usually recommends silicone to his patients because they feel and look more natural. Saline breast implants traditionally had a smaller incision but now with the use of the Keller funnel, there is not much difference. Saline implants are adjustable during the surgery which is an advantage in women who are very asymmetric. Discuss your options with Dr. Wigoda and allow him to walk you through what is best in your particular situation and body.
You Can Change the Size of Your Implants
Initially, when getting breast implants you want to get it right the first time. However, it is important to keep in mind that you can opt to go bigger or smaller later on in life if you choose. If this is your first breast augmentation procedure in Miami or Fort Lauderdale, it is important to have an honest discussion with your plastic surgeon to determine what size best implant best suits your frame, as well as desires to potentially avoid wanting a second surgery.
Breast Implants Improve Confidence
Countless studies confirm that a woman’s career, personal relationships, and even sexual drive are all increased and drastically altered in a positive way after getting breast implants. Especially if you have sagging breasts, a breast augmentation with a lift can enhance your appearance and boost your confidence!
Breast Implants Will Feel Natural Over Time
A lot of women experience “buyer’s remorse” within the first few days post-op, simply because their breasts are swollen and do not look natural straight out of surgery. It is important to know before getting breast implants that your breasts may be swollen initially and not “settled” for about 6 months. After the first year mark, you can expect your breasts to feel and look natural, and sit where they are supposed to.
Breast Implants Can Last Decades
It is a myth that all breast implants should be redone after roughly 10 years ! If the implants rupture at any time, then the company will give you a free pair of implants to replace them. If they rupture within ten years of the surgery, the implant company with give you some money ( around $3500 for silicone implants). If the surgery is done well and you are happy with how your breasts look, there is no need to keep returning for more surgery unless you choose to.
What You See After Surgery Is Not The Final Result
Regardless of whether you receive saline or silicone breast implants from Dr. Wigoda, it is important to know before getting breast implants that the immediate results are not the final results. As mentioned above, the breasts will be slightly swollen and it will take time for the swelling to go down and the implants to settle to see the final result.
Breast Implants Do Not Look Fake
If you opt for a breast augmentation procedure that is performed by an experienced plastic surgeon with the right skillset, then your breasts will appear natural and will not look fake.
Cheap breast implants are not necessarily going to be terrible, and expensive surgery does not guarantee fantastic results. What is important is that you find the best plastic surgeon for you. Ask for recommendations, research online, read testimonials and reviews, and look at before and after photos to see if that plastic surgeon is reputable and does a great job for his patients.
You Need To Follow the Doctor’s Instructions
Before, and especially after surgery, Dr. Wigoda will advise you on the healing process. It is vital that you follow what you are told precisely. Deviating from your post-op instructions, removing the surgical bra too early, or returning to physical activity against Dr. Wigoda’s instructions can lead to unwanted consequences.
