With many patients wishing to go south for the holidays, we are often asked if they can sunbathe if they have had breast augmentation surgery. Tanning salons or sunbathing will not hurt your breast implant, but it may affect your scars. For optimal results, you should avoid sun exposure or wear sunscreen over your incisions. Speak with Dr. Niessen and see if breast augmentation is right for you!
Dr. Niessen offers both types of saline implants. We offer 1) Round Style Breast Implant To accommodate various body types, the round shape is available in a wide variety of sizes. Round breast implants are available in two different shells: smooth and textured. Smooth surface breast implants are less likely to be felt through the skin and tissue and have a slightly softer shell. 2) Contour Style Breast Implant These saline-filled breast implants feature a contoured shape that re-creates the more teardrop outline of a natural looking breast. Women who are looking for a gently sloping…
When PPC is injected into fat cells, it has a detergent like effect and causes fat cells to rupture and then dissolve. The liver then breaks down this fat and it is excreted by the body. These fat dissolving injections also cause tightening of the skin in the treatment areas. This is an advantage of the technique over liposuction in certain areas. Areas which can be treated by injection lipolysis are: abdomen, back fat rolls, love handles, thighs, knees, neck arms and face.
The PPC used for fat dissolving injections is harvested from the soy plant. PPC has been used in other fields of medicine, usually intravenously, for treating fat embolism in the lungs, for lowering cholesterol levels and as a liver protective substance. PPC injected into fat deposits has a detergent like effect, causing fat cells to rupture and dissolve. Fat released by the cell is metabolized by the liver and excreted by the body.

During breast augmentation, implants will either be placed under the chest wall (submuscular) or on top of the muscle and under the breast gland (subglandular). Submuscular placement may provide you with youthful-looking breasts for a longer time, may reduce the chances of your implants being felt through your skin, and it may help reduce the chance of scar tissue hardening around your implants (capsular contracture). It will also make it easier to image your breast during a mammogram.
Despite good health and a reasonable level of exercise, some people may still have a body with disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. These areas may be due to family traits rather than a lack of weight control or fitness. Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion, and ultimately enhancing your self-image. Dr. Niessen also offers Lipodissolve. For more information about Lipodissolve, please contact our website at www.lipodissolve.ca.
Each woman’s recovery is different. In general, you will feel a little sore for several days following your breast augmentation surgery. The first 24 to 48 hours after your procedure is when you will experience the most discomfort. Your breasts will be swollen and tender. An important part of recovery involves wearing a bra. This is designed to provide you with extra support while you heal. Meet with Dr. Niessen to see if breast augmentation is right for you.
Breast augmentation is not only a medical decision, it is a personal one. The perception we have of ourselves defines who we are and how we introduce ourselves to the world. Not every woman may feel the need for breast augmentation, but for many women it has provided them with a great deal of personal satisfaction, confidence and sense of well-being. Meet with Dr. Niessen to see if breast augmentation is right for you.
There are two different types of saline breast implants. Saline-filled breast implants are filled with a saltwater solution similar to the fluid that makes up most of the human body. Each breast implant has a self-sealing valve used to fill the device during your breast augmentation surgery. Dr. Niessen offers a variety of textures, sizes and shapes to provide you the greatest flexibility toward achieving breast enhancement goals. There are two types of Saline-Filled Breast Implants to choose from when you are considering breast augmentation: Round and Contour or teardrop shape. Meet with Dr. Niessen…
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgery performed on the breasts to lift and reshape breasts that sag. Factors such as nursing, pregnancy and gravity over time, change the appearance of the breasts. As women age, the elasticity of the skin becomes more loose and saggy. Women will lose that firmness and shape they once had. The small scars that are left behind by mastopexy can easily be covered by a bathing suit or bra. Speak with Dr. Niessen and see if a breast lift is right for you.
Injection lipolysis offers a new, safe and non invasive treatment for fat deposits all over the body. It can be used to address problem localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Abdominoplasty, also known as a “tummy tuck”, is a procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen, and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. You may benefit from an abdominoplasty done in conjunction with liposuction to remove fat deposits from the hips for a better and more pleasing body contour. Meet with Dr. Niessen and see if a tummy tuck is right for you!
