Atlanta Breast Augmentation Specialists
At Bella Forma Cosmetic Surgery Center, we follow certain protocols that help us meet the expectations of the patient with minimal risks. Based on these protocols, Bella Forma became a reference point for Breast Augmentation surgery in Atlanta. Those patients that require Breast Reconstructive Plastic Surgery are referred to specialists affiliated with Bella Forma Clinic for best outcomes.
The age of the patient varies depending on the condition, but at Bella Forma we screen our patients that are over 21 years of age for many things including, history of breast cancer in the family, weight loss or gain, asymmetry since adolescence, childbearing, breast feeding, previous breast surgery, and listen very carefully to what the patient expects and wants.
Majority of Patients who had previous Breast Augmentations are still enjoying their implants in their 10-15th year without problems. Those who revisit to do again do so because of many reasons related to ageing of the human breast with gravitational down pull on the skin envelope of the breast over the years. This is very important to understand because the type of surgery required to aesthetically correct the breast is not the same as a simple breast augmentation surgery.
Thus, referral to a Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon affiliated with Bella Forma is recommended.
Recovery from Breast Augmentation Surgery patients at Bella Forma Clinic is usually 3-7 days depending on the locations of the implant placement and the scar.
I recommend returning to normal exercise after 6 weeks. I also recommend manual lymphatic massages with ultrasonic applications to reduce the risk of complications such as capsular-contracture and seroma, to begin after he 5th day of surgery.
- Patients who want to exchange their implants for a larger size can do so preferably after the first year.
- Women over age 40, require a mammogram prior to Breast Augmentation.
- Women of any age, with family history of breast cancer, require a mammogram.
Finally, consult with your surgeon in person in order to fully understand the problem. Nothing gives the surgeon better knowledge of the problem than touching, lifting, feeling for elasticity of your skin envelope that is going to support your new implant for a long time. If the surgeon can meet your realistic expectations then you have a great value in your investment.
