Go Gummy!

Breast Augmentation​​

Breast augmentation is a procedure in which implants are placed into the breast area, often to increase the size and improve the appearance of the breasts.  The implants are made of silicone or saline.  Additionally, implants may be placed on top or or under the muscle, and there are a variety of different options for the insertion site, or scar.   When you meet with him for your consultation, Dr. Ditto will discuss your options and his professional recommendations for you considering your history, size, and desired results. 

Who is a Candidate for Breast Augmentation Surgery? 

Life After Breast Augmentation Surgery 

Breast augmentation surgery is performed under general anesthesia, and patients can usually go home the same day.  Normal activities may generally be resumed in about 7 days, but strenuous activities and some sports should be avoided for 2 - 4 weeks.  Surgical scar(s) are usually hidden in the infra-mammary folds, peri-areolar border (the border between the areola and normal breast skin), arm pits, or the belly button.  However, as with all scars, it is recommended that the scars be protected from the sun for at least one year following the surgery.

Who may get breast implants?
Natrelle® Breast Implants are approved for women for the following:
• Breast augmentation for women at least 22 years old for silicone-filled implants.
Breast augmentation for women at least 18 years old for saline-filled implants.
Breast augmentation includes primary breast augmentation to increase breast size, as well as revision surgery to correct or improve the result of a
primary breast augmentation surgery.

Who should NOT get breast implants?
• Women with active infection anywhere in their body.
• Women with existing cancer or precancer of their breast who have not received adequate treatment for those conditions.
• Women who are currently pregnant or nursing.

What should I know before getting breast implants?
• Breast implants are not lifetime devices, and not necessarily a one-time surgery.
• Many of the changes to your breasts following implantation cannot be undone. If you later choose to have your implant(s) removed and not replaced,
you may experience unacceptable dimpling, puckering, wrinkling, or other cosmetic changes of the breast, which may be permanent.
• Breast implants may affect your ability to breast-feed, either by reducing or eliminating milk production.
• Rupture of a silicone-filled breast implant is most often silent and may not be detected by you or your doctor. You should have an MRI 3 years after
your surgery and then every 2 years after that for as long as you have your breast implants to determine if rupture is present. If implant rupture is noted
on an MRI, you should have the implant removed, with or without replacement.
• With breast implants, a routine screening mammography and self-examinations for breast cancer will be more difficult. Ask your doctor to help you
distinguish the implant from your breast tissue. Symptoms of a ruptured implant may be hard knots or lumps surrounding the implant or in the armpit,
change or loss of size or shape of the breast or implant, pain, tingling, swelling, numbness, burning, or hardening. Tell your doctor of these symptoms
and remove ruptured implants.
• Inform any other doctor who treats you of the presence of your implants to minimize the risk of damage to the implants.

What should I tell my doctor?Tell your doctor if you have any of the following conditions, as the risks of breast implant surgery may be higher:
• Autoimmune diseases (for example, lupus and scleroderma).
• A weakened immune system (for example, currently taking drugs that weaken the body’s natural resistance to disease).
• Planned chemotherapy following breast implant placement.
• Planned radiation therapy to the breast following breast implant placement.
• Conditions or medications that interfere with wound healing and blood clotting.
• Reduced blood supply to breast tissue.
• Clinical diagnosis of depression or other mental health disorders, including body dysmorphic disorder and eating disorders. Please discuss any history
of mental health disorders with your surgeon prior to surgery. Patients with a diagnosis of depression or other mental health disorders should wait for
resolution or stabilization of these conditions prior to undergoing breast implantation surgery.

What are some complications with breast implants?
Key complications are reoperation, implant removal with or without replacement, implant rupture with silicone-filled implants, implant deflation with
saline-filled implants, and severe capsular contracture (severe scar tissue around the implant). Other complications include asymmetry, nipple/breast/
skin sensation changes, scarring, or wrinkling/rippling. Talk to your doctor about other complications.
