Which Breast Implant Shape is Best?

In Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani’s last blog post, he outlined some important information to consider when selecting the appropriate breast implant size for your breast augmentation procedure. In the second installment of this 2-part blog series, he discusses how to choose the shape that will best create the look you want to achieve: My patients often worry about selecting the right size when it comes to breast implants, but size isn’t the only thing to be considered these days. With advancements in cosmetic surgery procedures, there are now many options available for patients considering breast enhancement. Breast implants also now have a variety of shapes, textures, and profile options. Some patients prefer teardrop-shaped implants over the more traditional round implants, because they feel it provides... Continue Reading

Choosing the Right Breast Implant Size

When breast augmentation patients are deciding what breast implant size to choose, there are many important factors to consider. Many patients make the common mistake of thinking that a certain volume translates the same way for all people. For example, if a patient’s friend got 350cc, and they think their friend’s breasts look too large, that same volume might not necessarily look too large on them. On that same note, if they like the way a friend’s implants turned out, saying they want the same breast implants as their friend might not be the right choice, either. It is important to remember that everyone’s body is different, so the same size implant will look different on various body shapes and sizes. When selecting the appropriate... Continue Reading

What To Do With “Sloshing” Noises After Surgery?

Last Friday we posted the following scenario on Facebook: Mrs. Kendall Doubledee undergoes saline breast augmentation a couple of days ago. She is hearing what sounds like 'swishing', 'sloshing', 'water-like' noises. What should Kendall do? "Sloshing" or "Water-Like" noises coming from the breasts after breast implant surgery is quite common because air gets into the pocket during surgery. Additionally, during surgery the pocket is irrigated with saline and it is the combination of this residual fluid that is remaining and the air that gives the "sloshing" noise postoperatively. There is no harm in this and nothing to worry about. Both the air and the fluid will be reabsorbed by your body over the first few weeks after surgery. About Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani Dr. Jon...

How Old Do I Have to be to Get Silicone Implants?

Last Friday we asked our Facebook fans if 21 year-old Miss Jessica Smith can have silicone implants. The answer to this is MAYBE. Yes, Jessica needs to be 22 years old to undergo breast augmentation using silicone implants IF this is her first time having breast augmentation and if this was strictly for cosmetic purposes. However, if Jessica was having revisionary surgery or reconstructive surgery then she is able to have silicone implants despite her age. The FDA approved silicone gel-filled breast implants for increasing breast size (augmentation) in women age 22 or older and for reconstruction (after breast cancer surgery or other medical issues) in ALL women. Silicone implants are also approved for revision surgeries, which correct or improve the result of an original... Continue Reading

“Lollipop” Breast Lift Surgery

Last Friday, we asked our Facebook Fans If there was such a thing called “Lollipop” Breast Lift? The answer is YES! A woman's breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from: pregnancy, breast feeding, weight fluctuations, aging, gravity and heredity. The surgical procedure to raise and firm the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support a new breast contour is called a breast lift, or medically known as mastopexy, procedure. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift will reduce this as well. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is youthful and uplifted. It is important... Continue Reading

How Can You Prevent Blood Clots After Surgery?

Last Friday we proposed the following question on our Facebook page:  How can one prevent blood clots from developing after a surgical procedure?  All the responses received were correct answers!  So good job everyone :) Let us start first with answering the basic questions. 1)  What is a blood clot?   Blood clots form when blood fails to circulate adequately. A DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) is a blood clot that forms in the leg veins, typically beginning in the calf veins.  A PE (Pulmonary Embolism) is caused by a blood clot, typically in the leg, groin, or pelvic veins (and occasionally in the upper extremity veins) which breaks free and travels to the lung arteries. A DVT is often the source of a clot that travels...

What To Do With a Leaking Saline Implant?

Last Friday, we posted the following trivia question on Facebook, What do you do about a leaking saline breast implant?  We received many responses to this post!  We have had patients come to the Aesthetic Surgery Centre with deflated saline implants that happened years ago and wish to address the problem now.  Although it is desirous to have the surgery to correct the deflated implant to restore symmetry and balance, the truth is that is not always medically necessary to have the surgery done immediately.  Keep in mind that if a saline implant breaks, all that leaks out is saltwater.  The saltwater is harmlessly absorbed into the body.  On occasions, the breast may rapidly change shape as the fluid leaks out.  In this instance, the...
