Upgrade Your Breast Implants
Have you had your breast implants over ten years? Now that they have settled with time, do you wonder if it’s possible to do a little upgrading? You may have noticed some sagging, rippling or hardness over time, which are sometimes par for the course as time marches on and you experience pregnancies and weight fluctuations.
There have been a number of advances in breast surgery and implant technology over the last decade. The new FDA-approved silicone gel implants are more cohesive. This means they have a denser gel consistency, feel more natural, and have less rippling or rupture potential.
It may be time for you to consider having your current implants removed and replaced with new cohesive gel implants. At the same time, you could have a nipple lift, size change or other revisions so you can be happy with your breasts again. There are a myriad of shapes and styles of gel implants available to customize your look. Most patients seeking to improve their look desire more cleavage, firmness, softness, perkiness, or higher placement on chest.
Making Tummy Tucks Even Better
Tummy tuck patients can often benefit from touch up procedures to improve their result, even years after the procedure. A good result can turn into a great one with a little post-operative revisionary surgery. Many patients feel like it’s icing on the cake if they return for liposuction of the upper abdomen, groin and hips to contour areas not addressed by the original surgery. While performing a tummy tuck, it is important for your surgeon to maintain good vascular flow to the skin, so add-ons such as extensive liposuction make healing a bit riskier.
Other touchup procedures after tummy tuck surgery include removal of the “dog ear” puckers at the end of the incisions, or excision of areas where the scar may have widened or the skin relaxed a little too much after the swelling dissipated. Revisions can be done months to years after the original surgery. Most revisions can be done as minor procedures with very little down time.
