There are a variety of reasons why a person may be considering breast implant surgery in Carmel. Perhaps you’re looking to balance your figure or reconstruct your breasts after a medical surgery, or simply want to enhance your breast size for personal reasons.
When you first look into breast surgeries, you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed by all the different options. So how do you know which one makes the most sense for you?
The experts at Turkle MD & Associates are here to help answer your questions and guide you through what to expect from your breast implant surgery experience.
Who is a candidate for breast implant surgery in Carmel?
Generally, the ideal candidate for breast implants is someone who is physically healthy, not currently pregnant or breastfeeding, and looking to change the shape or size of their breasts.
If you’re looking for a breast reduction, that’s a little different. Breast implant surgery, or breast augmentation, is about adding to or reshaping breasts. Whereas a breast reduction is about reducing size only.
Choosing to receive breast implants is a personal choice and completely up to the individual. You should never feel pressured to pursue changing your breasts.
Reasons to seek breast implants:
- Correct breasts that are different sizes
- Adjust the size of your breast after surgery, pregnancy, or weight loss
- Improve your self confidence
- Help clothing to fit better
- Long lasting results
An in-depth consultation with a trusted, qualified provider is the best way to figure out which breast implant surgery would give you the results you’re looking for. At Turkle & Associates, we treat every patient as a unique individual, and pride ourselves on creating customized treatment plans based on each patient’s desired outcomes.
What to look for in a provider
Breast implant surgery is a medical procedure, and should be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon.
To be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, a doctor must have several years of experience and education. They also must have demonstrated safe and ethical surgical practices.
Board certification is not required to practice plastic surgery. Certification shows that a provider has taken extra steps to ensure that they can perform the operations safely.
You should also look into reviews from previous clients, as well as look at before and after photos that demonstrate the quality of results you want to see.
Types of breast implant surgery in Carmel
The type of breast surgery you choose will be based on the results you’re hoping to achieve.
The shape of your breast can change over time due to a variety of factors, like pregnancy or aging. Sagging breasts and downward facing nipples can be a source of discomfort for many patients.
During a breast lift procedure, we can reshape the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding skin. Some patients also decide to combine a breast lift and breast implant surgery.
Breast lifts can be combined with augmentation or reduction, depending on the final results you hope to achieve.
If you’re looking to balance your figure or to reconstruct your breasts after a surgery, or generally just want to enhance your figure/curves/physique, you may consider breast augmentation.
For this procedure, we use a breast implant to shape and increase the size of the breast. These implants are made from either saline, silicone gel, soft-touch, or cohesive gel. We use innovative VECTRA 3D technology to assist you in visualizing exactly what your body will look like with your chosen implants.
You might choose to have breast revision for a number of reasons that aren’t suited for a lift or augmentation. We see both male and female patients for breast revisions at our office. Sometimes it’s because of irregularities or inversions of the nipples, uneven breast size, or the removal/replacement of breast implants from a previous augmentation surgery.
There is a wide scope of options available to patients who are looking to change or enhance their chest area, your provider will work with you to determine the best treatment plan for your needs.
Are there any risks with breast implant surgery in Carmel?
FDA approved breast implants receive extensive testing to guarantee their safety and effectiveness for patients. Most patients don’t experience any serious complications.
Breast implant surgery is a medical procedure, and carries the same risk as any surgery. The results of your breast implant surgery are a long term commitment and that begins with a positive surgery experience.
Preparing well for your surgery is the best way to avoid side effects, as well as choosing a trusted, experienced plastic surgeon. During your consultation, your provider will discuss all the details of the procedure, including the best ways to prepare.
What’s the process for breast implant surgery at Turkle & Associates?
Every cosmetic procedure at Turkle & Associates begins with an in-depth consultation where we get to know you and your goals. We’ll discuss your medical history, your concerns, and perform a preliminary examination.
We’ll also consider your budget and lifestyle, all with the goal of developing a care plan that works for you. Our team strives to equip each of our patients with a full understanding of the procedure, your anticipated results, and necessary recovery time.
If your procedure will include implants, we use complimentary VECTRA 3D imaging during your consultation. This is to help you visualize your results and make decisions about your implant choice. Vectra gives you the opportunity to truly see what you would look like with your chosen implants by scanning your body and creating a 3D model.
We work with you to schedule your surgery and any post op appointments so that they work with your lifestyle. When you schedule your surgery, our team will also discuss recovery instructions for your specific treatment.
On surgery day, your surgeon will go over the procedure again with you and make sure all of your questions are answered. After your surgery, our team will monitor you until we deem it safe for you to be released to your driver or caregiver.
The length of your surgery will depend on the nature of your procedure. Some surgeries only take about 1 hour, some up to 4 hours.
Anesthesia is used for your comfort during the procedure. Incisions are made in strategic places to minimize visible scarring. The results are immediately visible after surgery.
Recovery is different for every individual, but most patients can expect a downtime of about a week, with full recovery taking up to 6 weeks. Again, this is depending on your procedure, and your provider will go over this with you prior to your surgery.
After your procedure it is normal to experience soreness and swelling that will dissipate over time. You will need to wear a supportive bra at all times following your surgery, not only for your comfort, but to promote implant stability and proper healing.
It’s a good idea to have someone who is able to assist you during the weeks following your surgery. Or to prepare your home as much as possible prior to your procedure.
The results for breast implant surgery in Carmel are highly individualized because we are able to personalize each surgery based on your vision for your breasts.
After your surgery, it’s important to follow any instructions and recommendations from your doctor to ensure that your recovery is quick and comfortable. We’ll have you come in for a series of post-op appointments to ensure that you are healing correctly and achieve your desired results!
Our patients tell us that they feel more self-assured and are happy with their new silhouette!
You can expect to enjoy your results for a long time. Today’s breast implants are very durable and come with an extensive manufacturer’s warranty.
