Teardrop Shaped Silicone Breast Implants (Gummy Bears)

How should breast implants look right after surgery?

breast implants during surgery and one day after

The first photo was taken during breast augmentation surgery. You can see that her new breast implants look good right away… they don’t look as good as they will once they are healed, but they still look symmetric, attractive, and much better than what she has to start with. They are sitting slightly high on her chest because the skin hasn’t even started to stretch, but overall they look nice.

The second photo was taken the day after surgery. She is  more swollen, and the implants haven’t settled or dropped at all yet (in fact, they actually look a little higher because of the additional swelling), but they still look attractive and symmetric. She can easily imagine what they will look like after they are healed without having to envision any dramatic changes.

If your new breast implants look so bad to you that you are having a hard time envisioning that they will ever look good no matter how much stretching and settling occurs, then there might be a problem. You should speak with your surgeon right away if you feel this way after your procedure.

Keep reading to learn more about how new breast implants continue to look better and better over the course of 2-3 months after surgery…

Larger size implants with a petite frame…

breast augmentation in new york, breast augmentation nyc, breast implants nyc, breast augmentation at MAS, breast augmentation with dr nicholas vendemia

This may seem like an easy procedure, but this is actually one of the toughest breast augmentation surgeries. This woman was very petite and in very good shape with incredibly low body fat, but she wanted a larger sized implant. It is extremely difficult to achieve a natural look with this combination of factors, but as you can see, it is possible with a highly advanced technique of implant insertion.

She underwent a submuscular (under the muscle) breast augmentation with a 397cc (full C cup) moderate profile Natrelle silicone implant, and this is the result at only 6 weeks after surgery with only about 80% of the stretching complete. Over the next 6 weeks, her result will continue to improve  as the bottom half her breast completes it full stretch and the implants rotate down into an even more natural position.

With the Rapid Recovery technique, she was back to work in less than a week, and back to the gym after only 10 days.

Breast Implant Revision Surgery for Implants that are Too High

breast implant revision, breast augmentation revision, implants sitting too high

If you’ve spent any time looking at Before & After photos for breast augmentation, you have probably noticed how common it is for the implants to be sitting too high on the chest.

These are photos of a 24 year old woman who traveled to Miami to have her breast augmentation by a “prominent” plastic surgeon, but as you can see in her Before picture (taken one month after her original surgery), she didn’t get a great result. Her implants are sitting VERY high on her chest and they have an unnatural rectangular shape. Her original implants were 650cc high-profile saline that were overfilled to about 700cc. They felt very hard, and looked frozen to her chest when she tried to move them.

Keep Reading to find out how her revisional surgery went and see more photos…

PIP Breast Implant Removal

PIP breast implant removal by NYC plastic surgeon dr nicholas vendemia of mas manhattan aesthetic surgery, breast enlargement new york, breast implants nyc, plastic surgeryThe PIP breast implant scandal has been center-stage in the aesthetic safety news over the past few months, and has resulted in several criminal charges against executives of the French company, Poly Implant Prosthese (PIP), that was responsible for manufacturing breast implants with industrial-grade silicone instead of medical silicone in an effort to cut costs.

PIP implants were distributed throughout Europe and South America, and even though the rate of rupture appears to be at least double the rate of medical-grade implants, there is still no consensus on whether or not the implants should be removed.

PIP breast implants were never sold in the United States, but if you are one of the thousands of women who received PIP breast implants in another country, keep reading for more information…

Adjustable Breast Implants?

Adjustable Breast Implants, Breast Augmentation, Breast Enlargement, Plastic Surgery, Plastic Surgeon NYC, Breast Augmentation by New York Plastic Surgeon Dr Nicholas Vendemia of MAS | 917-703-7069A recent article in a Chicago newspaper talked about the idea of adjustable breast implants!

This idea isn’t necessarily a new… adjustable breast implants (AKA “tissue expanders”) are used all the time in the first phase of breast cancer reconstruction surgeries. However, the idea of using adjustable implants in cosmetic breast augmentation surgery is relatively new and somewhat controversial.

New Breast Implants Will Drop Over the First 3 Months

How new breast implants drop, breast implants too high, high riding breast implants, Plastic surgeon new york city, breast enlargement new york city, dr nicholas vendemia, mas, manhattan aesthetic surgery

Breast augmentation was officially the most popular cosmetic procedure in 2010, and for a very good reason… the results are fantastic!

Those fantastic results take a little time though. It’s very common for brand new breast implants to sit a high on the chest, but this shouldn’t worry you. There are a few reasons why implants sit high right after surgery, but the most common reason is that your surgeon put them there on purpose to compensate for the fact that your skin will stretch over the first 2-3 months after the procedure. As the skin stretches, the implants descend into their final perfect position.

In the above picture series, you can see how brand new breast implants drop over the first 3 months after surgery.

1 Month

The implants are sitting fairly high on the chest, and they are quite swollen. The nipples are pointing down just ever so slightly because of the high position of the implants, and this gives the illusion that the breasts are sagging a bit. This is entirely normal and expected at only one month after surgery.

2 Months

You can see that the implants have descended a few centimeters, and the nipples are in the center of the implant. The illusion of sagging has disappeared, as has most of the swelling.

3 Months

The implants have dropped into their ideal position, and the swelling has completely resolved. The nipples are in the center of the implant, and they are now pointing just slightly skyward. This new position reflects the final few centimeters of implant descent, and the ideal position for breast implants in relation to the overlying breast.

Are you thinking about getting a breast augmentation? You’re not alone!

Over ten million cosmetic procedures were performed last year, and the number one procedure continues to be breast augmentation surgery. The technology for breast surgery has improved in leaps and bounds in recent years, and with each new advancement comes more choices. Lots more choices!

MRI’s for Your DD’s! A Better Way to Check for Breast Implant Leaks

Are your implants getting enough attention? Ahem, from you that is!

It’s tempting to believe that once you’ve made the decision to get breast implants, that the process is a done deal. In fact, many women believe that the only time they’ll ever have to thing about their implants again is when they’re admiring themselves in a hot new bikini!

For the most part this is true. Implants do not require a lot of maintenance. But there is one thing that I feel all women with breast implants should make sure to do periodically: get MRI scans of their breasts.

Pregnancy brings on a lot of changes to a woman’s body, and as any woman knows, these changes aren’t limited to the baby bump!

Your breasts also go through some changes due to hormone fluctuations. The onset of lactation will almost always lead to a temporary size increase, but the effect that this will have on the post-pregnancy appearance of your breast implants is less predictable.

Fat Injections for Breast Augmentation. The “Natural” Alternative.

model

Fat injections have been used for a long time to rejuvenate the aging face by restoring it’s youthful volume, and to create some not-so-natural “volume” in the rear during a Brazilian Butt Lift. But (no pun intended), until recently, fat transfer to the breast has been reserved for breast reconstruction after cancer surgery.

As technology advances, the number of clinical applications for fat transfer procedures continues to rise. And since breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery in the country, some people are wondering whether breast implants are still the best for the bust.
