Breast size can be a key component in feeling confident, healthy and attractive for many women. Breast Augmentation may be your best option for creating the look you deserve. If you aren’t happy with your breast size or shape, Dr Obaid can help.
Which Breast Implants are Best for Me?
There are several options to choose from when selecting the best type of implant for you. Dr. Obaid will guide you through every step of the process. As part of our consult, we will explain all of the options available and also have samples of the different implants so you can feel the difference between silicone and saline devices. After discussing your goals and conducting an examination, Dr. Obaid will work to pick the implant that is the perfect size, shape and material… for YOU! He will discuss placement above or below the muscle with you, as well as customize a surgical approach that is the best to allow for optimal shape, size, and scar camouflage for your desired look!
What are Memory Gel Silicone Implants?
Memory gel silicone implants are soft yet have been engineered so that in the unlikely event of an implant rupture the silicone stays together as a cohesive unit as opposed to leaking out. In Dr. Obaid’s opinion, memory gel implants have significantly improved the safety of silicone implants.
Dr. Obaid routinely uses the memory gel silicone implants when performing breast enhancement. At your consultation, please ask him to feel the memory gel implants so that you can see how soft and durable they really are!
Should My Implants be placed “over the muscle” or “under the muscle”?
Breast implants can be placed either over or under the pectoralis muscle. Dr. Sacha Obaid performs both under and over the muscle implantations. In general, Dr. Obaid feels that the under the muscle placement leads to a softer more natural look. Placement under the muscle in general is associated with fewer complications. At your consultation with Dr. Obaid, he will discuss with you over the muscle and under the muscle placement and decide which is best for you. There are certain patients who may benefit from over the muscle placement of their breast implants.
What should I expect on the Day of Surgery?
Dr. Obaid will visit with you again and review everything that you should expect. All your questions and your loved ones questions will be answered prior to surgery. The surgery itself is an outpatient procedure and you will go home the same day. You may require a small amount of pain medicine overnight, but most patients report the discomfort to be minimal and are up and around by the next day. You will be able to shower 2 days following your procedure.
You will follow up with Dr. Obaid one week after the surgery to ensure that you are healing well. There will be no painful stitches to remove and no bandages to change. You will be comfortable and looking great!
What about Scars?
Dr. Obaid specializes in minimal scar, minimal pain breast augmentation. There are four choices for scar placement. They are underneath the nipple, underneath the breast, in the armpit, or in the belly button. Dr. Obaid will examine you at your consultation and help you decide which incision is right for you.
Are Breast Implants Safe?
Silicone implants are among the most studied medical devices ever. They have been shown to be safe and effective with very few complications. The federal government put together a study group with experts in radiology, women’s health, neurology, oncology, silicone chemistry, rheumatology, immunology, epidemiology internal medicine and plastic surgery called the Institutes of Medicine. They found that “Evidence suggests diseases or conditions such as connective tissue diseases, cancer, neurological diseases or other systemic complaints or conditions are no more common in women with implants than in women without implants.”
