Subglandular Breast Augmentation

Subglandular placement may make your surgery and recovery shorter, may be less painful, and may be easier to access for reoperation compared to submuscular placement. However, subglandular placement may result in more palpable implants (more likely to “feel” the implants through the breast), more capsular contracture and more difficult imaging of the breast with mammography.

Considering Breast Augmentation?

By inserting an implant behind each breast, Dr. Niessen is able to increase a woman’s bust line by one or more cup sizes. Breast enhancement is usually done to enhance the body contour of a woman who, for personal reasons, feels her breast size is too small, to balance a difference in breast size or to fill in breast volume loss due to pregnancy or breast-feeding.

Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone gel implants are made of a gel filler that acts as a solid unit rather than a liquid. The gel holds together uniformly, while retaining the natural “give” that resembles actual breast tissue. Gel-filled breast implants use gel that is cohesive, safe and aesthetically pleasing. Silicone Gel-Filled Implants are offered in either a round style gel implant or a contour (anatomic) shaped gel implant.   See if silicone breast implants are right for you!

Breastfeeding and Breast Implants

Many women with breast implants have successfully breast fed their babies.  A peri-areolar incision is more likely to affect this ability.  Some women experience mastitis, inflammation of the breast ducts, during this time, which can also cause capsular contracture.  Taking antibiotics when symptoms first appear may minimize the potential of this problem.

Wearing an under wire bra after breast...

Dr. Niessen asks that women wait 2 months before wearing an under wire bra, after having had either breast implant or breast lift surgery. Your body is forming scar tissue around the breast implant for this period.   During this time, the pressure from the under wire bra could cause irritation to your incision, and we suggest women wear a sports bra during their recovery time.

Smoking and Cosmetic Surgery

Smoking causes the blood vessels to constrict, reducing the blood supply and the oxygen carried by the blood to the surgical area. The tissues need this blood supply and the oxygen that the blood carries in order to heal. When the blood supply is reduced the tissues heal more slowly. Whether you are having a breast augmentation, a mastopexy, an abdominoplasty or another procedure, you should plan to quit six weeks prior to your surgery.
