Recovery

Breast Reduction

Member Response:

In general scars take 9-12 months to fully mature and will continue to change over time. Depending on you skin type and quality the scars can change quite dramatically during the first several month. It is important to have regular follow up appointments with your surgeon so that the recovery process can be monitored over time. There are some additional measures that may help the scar as it heals - these may include silicone scar sheets/gel or scar laser treatments.

Breast Implants removed well, but the right nipple looks more like a dimple

Breast Lift

Member Response:

Thanks for your question and doing your homework with ASPS member surgeons. Seeing the final result after breast implant removal can take up to 9-12 months. Time and patience are your best friends during the early recovery period since in usually takes at least 4-6 months to see appreciable changes from skin contraction. Your breasts will go through a number of changes in appearance during recovery. If you still have some residual contour irregularity after 9-12 months, treating the area with filler or fat grafting may be possible and a good solution to address shape and symmetry. Best wishes in obtaining a fantastic result.

capsular contracture

Breast Augmentation

Member Response:

Thank you for your question and doing your homework with ASPS member surgeons. I am going to respectfully disagree with the posts that have already been made. Breast implants are designed as single use devices, In my opinion, the safest and best thing to do is to replace the implant with a new one. There are many theories regarding the origins of capsular contracture and residual biofilm on the existing implant may further increase your chance of having a recurrent capsular contracture. While there are many acceptable ways to perform revision breast surgery, in my practice, I always use a new implant when it is deemed necessary to exchange implants for whatever reason and at whatever time it has been since surgery. Best wishes on obtaining a great result and a speedy recovery.

Fat transfer for correcting breast reduction?

Breast Augmentation

Member Response:

Fat grafting is an effective way to enhance breast shape and volume but it is important to know that the amount of volume that can be transferred at any one time has limitations and it usually requires multiple rounds of fat grafting to achieve optimal results in the absence of using breast implants. Experience and studies show that about 2/3-3/4 of the transferred fat will survive. Cost will vary so it will be important to partner with an experienced plastic surgeon who can work with you to achieve your desired aesthetic goals over time. Best wishes on a great result and speedy recovery.

Galaflex

Breast Lift

It does very well for primary breast lifts as well as a host of revision breast procedures where additional support is required. As with any plastic surgery procedure, whether surgical or non-surgical, it is always best to have an in-person consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area. Our practice is just down the road from you, so please consider visiting us for a consultation - Restore SD Plastic Surgery.

Will i asleep doing breast augmentation surgery with slicone breast implants

Breast Augmentation

Member Response:

Thanks for your question and doing your homework with ASPS member surgeons. In general, breast augmentation is performed under general anesthesia with the patient all the way asleep. During the recovery process you will be asked to wear a compression bra that may then transition into a sports bra. Recovery will vary for everyone but most people are back to their usual activities by 3-4 weeks and back to more vigorous athletic activities by 6-8 weeks. Marathon training can put some addition stresses on your body so it would be wise to discuss this with your surgeon.

Breast has has hardened

Breast Augmentation

Member Response:

Thank for your question and doing your homework with ASPS member surgeons. Changes in your breast should be examined by a plastic surgeon and you should have a current mammogram or similar imaging study if you are in that age range. Capsular contracture can cause hardening in one or both breast implants. There are several treatment options so it is best to partner with a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area to develop a treatment plan that is customized to your individual features, cosmetic goals, budget, and recovery timeline. The ASPS website has a "Find a Surgeon" feature to help facilitate finding properly trained and qualified plastic surgeon in your area.

Breast implant removal

Breast Augmentation

Member Response:

Emily, Thank you for your question and doing your homework with ASPS member surgeons. Implant removal is a very hot topic right now and is a very personal choice. It is important to see a board-certified plastic surgeon to develop a comprehensive plan that is customized to your individual features, cosmetic goals, budget, and recovery timeline. The ASPS website has a "Find a Surgeon" feature that can assist you in finding a surgeon in your area. The costs will vary by geographic area of the country and it is important to know what is exactly included in your quote. Surgeon's fees will be around $3000-$6000 for implant removal alone, more if a breast lift is added. There are additional fees for anesthesia and facility use so the total cost may get close to $8000-$10,000.

In general, total cost including anesthesia, surgeon's fees, and facility costs will run between $7000 - $10,000 depending on the complexity of the procedure. Recovery is fairly predictable and most patients return to work by two weeks and may take a bit longer to return to more vigorous exercise or athletic activities.

I was so happy that I decided to go to Dr. Douglas for my breast augmentation surgery. I had visited two other plastic surgeons and knew that I had found the right doctor for me when I met Dr. Douglas and his staff. The entire experience was amazing and I'm thrilled with my surgical results. I really felt that Dr. Douglas listened to my goals and what I wanted to get out of my breast enhancement surgery. I look and feel great and my self-esteem has never been better. I have highly recommended Dr. Douglas to my friends and co-workers and will look forward to coming back for my Botox and skin care needs. – FR
Dr. Douglas, Thank you so much! My mommy makeover has given me a renewed sense of self-confidence and I have never looked or felt better. Your patience, care, and attention to detail were much appreciated during the process. Your staff is amazing and I can't say enough good things about my experience. – GL
I was diagnosed with breast cancer and wanted to know all of my reconstructive options. I was very blessed when I was referred to Dr. Douglas for my reconstructive surgery after my mastectomy. He is very detailed and makes sure that he gets it right. He cares what you think and will not settle for anything else. I wish Dr. Douglas was my Primary Care Provider because I would never let him go. He is, by far, the top Doctor that you want to go to in order get what you want and need. He knows exactly what you are asking for and knows how to come through with outstanding results. He does not walk away from you until you are 100% happy, and he is happy to see you at each phase of recovery.. When he is in the room with me, no one else is his priority but me. I can go on and on about Dr. Douglas. If I can only give him a 5 out of 5 stars, I would have to argue that and give him a 10. You will not regret a visit and surgery with him!! – JM
At 47, and with 3 grown children, I decided it was time for a “mommy makeover” and I couldn't be more pleased with my results or my surgeon. Dr. Douglas is by far the most thorough and caring surgeon I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He listened attentively to my requests and explained how he could implement those requests with my frame and body type; the end result literally took my breath away. The surgical skill of Dr. Douglas has enhanced my self-esteem and enabled me to feel good about myself, not only on the inside but on the outside as well. I would not hesitate to have Dr. Douglas perform more surgical procedures in the future nor would I hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking a surgeon for their plastic surgery needs. - EQ
