Breast surgery is an elective procedure that can enhance your physical appearance. Many women who wish to restore a more youthful, lifted breast line have found that breast surgery has totally transformed their lives. If you are seeking a more appealing silhouette through breast surgery in Sugar Land, our competent, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Olivier Deigni, can suggest procedures that may help you achieve your goal.
Women who decide to get breast surgery in Sugar Land have a few things to consider, such as: do I want to change the size of my breasts or the position – or both? We offer a few different options for you.
Some women may want a breast augmentation, which involves using breast implants or a fat tissue transfer that changes the contour of the breasts. Dr. Deigni inserts implants under the chest muscle or behind breast tissue, customized to your ideal specifications. Several choices exist for the implants, including their size, firmness, and texture.
After more than ten years, a woman may wish to have a breast implant revision to either improve the appearance of the breasts or update the implant material. For instance, you may want to change the contour, or we may need to address if the implant has migrated within the body.
Women whose breasts are large and cause back strain can benefit from breast reduction surgery to reduce their physical discomfort and potential embarrassment.
For some women, breasts sag after pregnancies, leaving a hollow area at the top. After a woman has finished having her family, she may also seek a breast lift to restore a more youthful and elegant chest. Dr. Deigni does not add tissue or implants during breast lift surgery (unless combined with an augmentation). Instead, he removes excess tissue from the bottom of the breast, lifts the breast at the incision, and restores it to its natural position.
During your first consultation with us, Dr. Deigni will discuss your history and cosmetic concerns. After a thorough evaluation, he can make recommendations for treatment. However, it is also crucial that you are a good candidate for breast surgery in Sugar Land.
Dr. Deigni may decide against specific procedures if you are deemed too high-risk based on your medical history. Other considerations include smoking, your expectations after surgery, and your psychological health. It is ideal if you have not smoked for at least four weeks before surgery, as this helps reduce the risk of anesthesia complications.
Smoking speeds up the aging process and the destruction of collagen. Collagen is a structural protein that give firmness to the skin and underlying structures. Women should have realistic expectations of surgical results. You may not be able to have the same voluptuous shape as a supermodel or an actress, but we can tailor the end result to your body proportions.
During your last appointment before the surgery, we will share post-operative instructions. You should follow these instructions to get the best possible results and prevent infection. You can usually go home the same day but should have someone available to drive and stay with you for at least 24 hours.
The type of surgery will dictate how often the dressings are changed and the type of pain medication you will need. You can expect the surgical area to be sore, tender, and sensitive for six weeks after breast surgery, and should avoid anything that leads to strain, including lifting heavy things.
Patients are encouraged to walk daily, starting the day after surgery. Walking helps increase blood flow and prevent respiratory problems like pneumonia. After breast augmentation, you will wear a compression garment to help hold the implants in place as the body heals around them.
The decision to seek plastic surgery for your cosmetic concerns is a personal choice. Getting breast surgery in Sugar Land must be your decision and not made to satisfy someone else. If you have questions about whether this is the right decision or how you need to prepare, call us at 281-721-4373 and schedule a consultation with Dr. Deigni. We look forward to meeting you!
