On Monday, our Lipodissolve patients from December 6th, 2007 came back to the office. They were all thrilled with their results! All patients noticed a dramatic improvement at the 6 week mark. Two patients, one having Lipodissolve of the abdominal area and one the neck area, decided to be re-treated. Again, they both described a tingling feeling and some swelling, but were quite comfortable during the procedure. I will keep you posted.

Can I fly or scuba dive with breast...

On Thursday, we had a previous breast augmentation patient in our office. With the cold weather upon us, she was planning a trip down south. She was concerned about flying and scuba diving with breast implants. We explained to her that many women scuba dive and fly in airplanes with breast implants. There may be a slight expansion and contraction of the shell with changes in pressure. With gel implants, as with saline implants, you may feel or hear fluid sounds (gurgling). This should correct itself within 24-48 hours.

Breast Implant surfaces

We had a patient in our office for a consultation on Thursday who wished to obtain more information about breast implant surfaces. We explained that breast implant shells have a smooth or textured surface. Textured breast implants were originally designed to help reduce the chance of capsular contracture, which is the formation of scar tissue around the implant. However, clinical studies involving large numbers of women using Mentor implants show no difference in the liklihood of developing capsular contracture with textured implants compared to smooth surfaced implants. Also, textured implants may be more palpable (more…

Incisions and Breast Augmentation...

To permit the smallest possible incision, breast implants are typically inserted empty and then filled with saline. You may discuss with Dr. Niessen the pros and cons for the specific incision site recommended for you. There are two common incision sites: around the nipple (periareolar) and within the breast fold (inframammary). When having periareolar breast augmentation, the incision is most concealed, but it is associated with a higher inability to successfully breast-feed, as compared to an inframammary incision. When having breast augmentation with an inframammary incision, it is less concealed, but will cause less…

Update on Lipodissolve patients

You may remember that three weeks ago Dr. Niessen treated three patients with lipolysis injections. I contacted all three patients, who were already thrilled with their results! Upon initial Lipodissolve treatment, they all described a stinging sensation that quickly subsided, and some swelling. In all three patients, the swelling has resolved and they all notice a definite improvement. Their skin appears to have smoothed, as the fat-melting injections worked. In one patient who had Lipodissolve to her abdominal area, she has noticed a 2 inch reduction in her abdominal cirfumference, and it is only going…

Recovery after Breast Augmentation...

We have many patients   in our office who are considering breast augmentation surgery, but are concerned about recovery time.   We tell them that they will probably feel somewhat tired and sore for several days following breast implant surgery, and their breasts may remain swollen and sensetive to physical contact for 2-3 weeks.   However, in almost all cases, I explain they will be up and moving around the same day.   You should be able to go back to work in a few days, depending on the level of activity required for your job.

What gives the breast its shape?

The breast consists of milk ducts and glands, surrounded by fatty tissue that provides its shape and feel. Situated beneath the breast is the pectoralis major muscle or chest wall. Factors such as pregnancy (when milk glands are temporarily enlarged), rapid weight loss, and the effects of gravity as a woman ages combine to stretch the skin, which may cause the breast to droop or sag. Unhappy with their appearence, they want to learn more about mastopexy or breast lift surgery.

Can I still breast-feed after having...

Many women with breast implants have successfully breast fed their babies. Current studies indicate that women with breast implants , either silicone or saline implants, do not have any higher levels of silicone in their breast milk than women without breast implants. Breast implants can, however, interfere with the ability of some women to breast-feed. The peri-areola incision site is more likey to affect this ability.

What will happen to my breast implants...

Every woman is an individual, and therefore has different results whether before a pregnancy or after.   Your breasts will enlarge and will go through all the usual changes associated with pregnancy.   The amount of enlargement will vary from woman to woman, and the size of the implants will factor into this as well.

What types of cohesive gel implants...

Many of our female patients considering breast augmentation surgery want information about the types of cohesive gel implants Dr. Niessen offers. He offers a variety of textures, sizes and shapes to provide you the greatest flexibility toward achieving breast enhancement goals. The breast implants Dr. Niessen offers are cohesive polymers, not liquid. Although soft and fluid feeling, they act as a unit. They hold together uniformly, while retaining the natural ‘give’ that resembles actual breast tissue. Dr. Niessen offers three degrees of cohesive gel implants: Cohesive I, the softest feeling gel Cohesive II, slightly…
