Breast Reduction

Also known as reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction surgery removes excess breast gland tissue and excess fat from the breast in order to achieve a more proportionate look.

FAQs

1) What should I expect at my breast augmentation consult?

You will meet Dr Robles at your consultation, not a physician assistant or nurse.

Dr Robles wants your initial consultation to be a relaxing, informative consultation. He will spend the time to listen to your needs. He then will make recommendations based on sound plastic surgical principles to ensure you have a rapid recovery , with long term beautiful results.

2) How is breast implant size determined?

Dr Robles will ask you what cup size YOU desire. He will then use a scientific based measurement approach to recommend a breast implant size that you will be satisfied with, while making sure you will not have a cup size that is too small or too big. Dr Robles will then use a Tailored Breast Implant sizing method to have you actually see how your breasts will look in clothes and a bikini. The Tailored Breast Implant sizing method is only available at Robles Plastic Surgery.

3) Which breast implants are better saline or silicone gel implants?

Both saline implants and silicone gel implants will give patients a nice full volume breast. However, silicone gel implants will feel more natural and have minimal to no rippling in the long run, where saline implants tend to ripple within the first 5 years and feel less natural.

4) Do silicone gel implants cause diseases?

No. Silicone gel implants do not cause breast cancer or other connective tissue or autoimmune diseases.

5) What is the difference between over the muscle and under the muscle?

Under the muscle is when the implant is placed behind the breast gland and the pectorals major muscle. Over the muscle is when the implant is placed only behind the breast gland.

6) What are the different incisions for a breast augmentation?

 

  • Inframammary incision- most common, less chance of losing nipple sensation, rapid recovery, less likely to injure breast gland, better position of implant
  • Periareola incision- more likely to lose nipple sensation, injury to breast gland and breast ducts
  • Axilla incision – inability to move arms right away, more likely for implant to go into armpit and to ride high on breast
  • Umbilical incision- incision not on breast, more likely for implant to not be in right position

7) How long is my recovery?

The first 72 hours you will be in some discomfort, described as “pressure” by most patients. However , most of Dr Robles’ patients will recover in 24 hours, due to the surgical technique that is used and the immediate ostoperative exercises that are performed.

8) Will I be able to breast feed after a breast augmentation ?

Yes. The breast implant is placed behind the muscle and behind the breast gland.

9) Will I lose nipple sensation?

Temporary decrease in nipple sensation may occur while the implant settles into place. Hypersensitivity may temporarily occur.

10) Do I need to remove my implants at 10 years?

No. It is a myth that implants need to be removed at 10 years. The implants will not spontaneously dissolve or rupture at 10 years. As long as the implants remain soft, are not causing any pain, and the size is still adequate, it is not necessary to remove the implants.

11) Do I need a pain pump after a breast augmentation?

No, it is not necessary when a precise surgical technique is used with no blunt trauma to the muscle, ribs or tissue.

12) When can I return to exercise after a breast augmentation ?

Most patients may begin exercising 1 week after the surgery.

13) Do I need a special bra after a breast augmentation?

No special bra is needed. A sports bra may be used for the first month for comfort, which occurs from the pressure of a sports bra.

14) Do I need to massage my breasts after a breast augmentation?

No special massages are necessary. Immediate motion of the arms within the first 24 hours after surgery will help minimize capsular contracture.

15) How long will it take for my breasts to look good after a breast augmentation?

The upper part of the breast will look full for the first 4-6 weeks. So the implants will not look normal until about 4-6 weeks after surgery.
