Saline or do I choose?

How do I know which implant to choose? Saline or Silicone?There's a great article on My Plastic Surgeon USA that discusses the pros and cons of both types of implants. It's a very tough choice for women to decide which implant to go with. Although the silicone implants feel much more real than the saline implants, they're also more expensive.

These details often leave women wondering which option is best for them.

Which would you choose?

Women's Self-Image and Sexual Satisfaction Increase After Cosmetic Surgery

Body image and sexual pleasure, including orgasm, enhanced after aesthetic makeovers

According to a study done by Aesthetic Surgery Journal, data from a study shows the impact of aesthetic plastic surgery on body image and sexual satisfaction. Women who undergo common elective cosmetic surgery procedures not only feel better about their bodies, but also have higher degrees of satisfaction with their sex lives, including ability to orgasm. Women in the study who had undergone aesthetic procedures were more sexually satisfied, reported that their partners were more sexually satisfied, dressed to enhance their new figures, and were apt to try more and different sexual activities post-surgery. The greatest benefits were seen in women who had breast augmentation/breast lift and/or body contouring procedures.

This study was published in the January/February 2006 issue of Aesthetic Surgery Journal, the peer-reviewed publication of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).

You can read more on this story in the Articles section of My Plastic Surgeon USA.

What can a Facelift do for me?

Facelift is a surgical procedure which improves skin on the face which sags. This is done by removing extra fat on the face and tightening the muscles. The goal of this plastic surgery procedure is the set the clock back in reference to aging, by reducing the most visible parts of it. This plastic surgery procedure takes a good amount of time, usually numerous hours. Most patients are back to work within 2 weeks. Consult your plastic surgeon for details about your specific recovery time as every patient is different. This procedure is very common for men and women, 35 years or older.

Complications in Plastic Surgery?

No matter how skilled, how much experience or how well trained your plastic surgeon is, like generally surgery, plastic surgery carries some risk. This includes infection, bleeding, blood clots, bad reactions to anesthesia, and others. As a patient, it is your responsibility to strictly follow both the pre surgery and post surgery instructions, given to you by your plastic surgeon. It is also very important that you choose a board certified plastic surgeons, as they are the best trained in the past, and also in the present. They are required to take educational courses to maintain there board certification.

During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will discuss the possible complications with you. Complications are uncommon, but patients typically appreciate the information ahead of time. Because smoking increases the chances of developing a complication and slows the healing process, you will need to stop smoking two weeks before a surgical procedure and for four weeks afterwards.

Considering Tummy Tuck Surgery? Find Out If You Are A Candidate For Surgery Here

Considering Tummy Tuck Surgery? Are you a Good Candidate?

The best candidates for Abdominoplasty are both men and women, who are not excessively over weight.

Is this you?
  • In pretty good shape, but having trouble losing a large fat build up that either diet, or exercise, or the combination of the two can not lose;
  • Have you given birth and you body is not returning back to normal? Pregnancy stretches out abdominal muscles and skin, usually beyond the point where they can return to normal.

If you:

  • Intend to lose a lot of weight in the near future, you should not have this surgery until you lose the weight;
  • If you intend to have a child, or additional children, you will want to wait because vertical muscles in the abdomen, which are tightened during this plastic surgery procedure, can separate during pregnancy;
  • Are you in good health? For any surgical procedure, it is important that your body can handle it, so you must be in good health;
  • Have you had abdomen surgery before? You will want to point this out to your plastic surgeon, as you may be cautioned in reference to unusually large scarring.

Breast Augmentation - The Procedure

Breast Augmentation will take anywhere from 1-2 hours, dependant on the incision location and the patient. Your incision location, and the location of the implant, will depend on your anatomy and the recommendation of the plastic surgeon.

The incision can be made in 4 different locations. It can be made in the crease, where the breast meets the chest, around the areola (dark skin around the nipple), through the armpit, or through the belly button (navel incision is not possible with silicone breast implants). Your plastic surgeon will recommend the best incision location for you, which will give you the best results and the least amount of scarring.

What are risks and complications of breast augmentation?

1. Infection

Although infection is rare (1-3%) it can be a very distressing problem. Signs of infection are fever, redness, swelling, and discomfort. If the infection does not respond rapidly to antibiotic treatment, the implant must be removed and the implant can be replaced three (3) months after the wound is completely healed.

2. Bleeding

If bleeding occurs into the implant pocket after surgery, the implant must be surgically removed, the bleeding controlled, the wound washed out, and the implant replaced. Signs of bleeding include marked swelling, increasing pain, and bruising.

3. Capsule contracture

Hardening of the breast with distortion and sometime pain may require surgical incision of the fibrous scar capsule around the implant (capsulotomy) or partial or total removal of the scar capsule (capsulectomy). The implant can be immediately placed back in the new packet. About 30-35% of patients have recurrent capsule contracture.

Other means of treating the contracture is replacement of a smooth implant with a textured one or placing the implant in a new pocket either under the breast or under the muscle.

If capsule contracture occurs multiple times, the patient may decide to remove the implants permanently.

4. Asymmetry

Sometimes the implant will slip out of the position in which it was initially placed and appear too high, too low, or to one side. Most of the time this requires surgical repair.

5. Problems with Mammography

The implant will block some areas of the breast from being visualized on mammography. This is usually less if the implant is placed under the muscle.

Because breast implants might affect the clarity of the mammogram, patients who have multiple close family members with breast cancer probably should not have breast implants.

6. Autoimmune Disease

With all the confusion in the newspaper, magazines and on the T.V. or radio, there has been a fear that silicone implants may cause autoimmune disease. At this time there is no scientific evidence that silicone causes autoimmune disease.

7. Cancer

There is no evidence that silicone implants cause cancer.

8. Calcifications

Implants that have been in a patient for many years may cause calcifications in the scar capsule around the implant. These calcifications can almost always be distinguished from the calcifications which may indicate breast cancer.

9. Deflation

An implant may leak from weakness in the patch or valve area, a hole from incomplete inflation, or other factors. The more modern saline implants have been estimated to leak in 1-5% of cases.
