Sometimes women achieve a good improvement in the size and shape of their breasts after implant placement, but the breasts still appear somewhat unnatural. The cleavage may be too wide or the lateral appearance of the breast seems a bit harsh. The upper pole of the breast may be not as full as the patient desires. Rippling and other abnormalities may also occur even if the implants are placed beneath the pectoral muscle. What is the solution to these difficult problems?
What About Fat Grafting Later?
This is a fabulous idea and can always be done at a later time if a traditional procedure did not fulfill your desires. Sometimes the hardest part of the procedure, especially in thin women, is to find enough fat to correct the problem! Remember that harvesting the fat is a cosmetic procedure as well and can significantly improve the appearance of other areas of your body at the same time as correcting your breast abnormality.
Risks Associated With Breast Implant Surgery
There are literally millions of women that have had breast implants for a wide variety of reasons. Many secondary problems have resulted even from well-performed surgery. Fat grafting is a great tool that has been added to Dr. Ereso’s treasure chest of ideas and techniques to help you achieve your desired result.
Benefits Of Composite Breast Augmentation
With composite breast augmentation, you can enjoy larger, more symmetrical breasts and beautiful cleavage. Your breasts will have a softer feel and an appealing shape that may not be achievable with breast implants alone.
Consultation With Dr. Ereso
Prior to your composite breast augmentation procedure, you will meet with Dr. Ereso to go over your treatment goals and expectations. The doctor will explain how he will tailor his techniques to meet your specific needs. Dr. Ereso may use imaging software to help you select your implant size and shape and flesh out other details about your procedure.
Preparation For Cosmetic Surgery
Preparing for any plastic surgery procedure, including composite breast augmentation, requires temporarily stopping any medications, vitamins or supplements that could cause increased bleeding or interfere with anesthesia during surgery. Dr. Ereso will review your medications and make the necessary recommendations. He will also advise whether you need to make additional lifestyle changes – such as discontinuing smoking – prior to your procedure.
Composite Breast Augmentation Procedure Details
The composite breast augmentation procedure involves three steps.
First, Dr. Ereso will make the incisions on the breasts and create pockets for the pre-determined implants. Next, he will perform liposuction on the pre-determined “donor” area and remove fat tissue to transplant to the breasts. After the fat has been purified and processed, Dr. Ereso will inject it into the breasts to add implant coverage as well as additional shape and volume to the breasts.
Composite Breast Augmentation Recovery
The recovery from composite breast augmentation lasts several weeks. During that time, it is normal to experience bruising, swelling and some tenderness in the breasts and donor area of the body. The majority of the aftereffects will subside after approximately two weeks, and you will start feeling like yourself again.
Dr. Ereso asks that you refrain from any strenuous activity during your recovery. He will provide a timeline for resuming work, exercise and other physical activities.
Risks/Safety Of Surgery
Safety is Dr. Ereso’s foremost priority. He will explain the precautions he takes to ensure a safe and smooth procedure. After surgery, it is critical that you follow his recovery instructions to minimize the chances of a complication.
