Posted on June 28, 2018 under Breast Implants

Thousands of breast implant procedures are performed in the US every year with outstanding results. Advancements in surgical technology and the introduction of innovative and superior qualities in breast implants have made the procedure safer and more aesthetically appealing. However, breast augmentation is a complex cosmetic surgery, and must be performed by an experienced breast surgeon to achieve the right results.

Dr. A. Dean Jabs and Dr. Franklin D. Richards of Cosmetic Surgery Associates are eminent plastic and reconstructive surgeons operating out of offices in Bethesda MD and McLean VA. Both Dr. Jabs and Dr. Richards are board-certified plastic surgeons, having more than four decades of experience between them. They receive patients for breast implants and other procedures from Northern Virginia, Fairfax, Alexandria, VA, Chevy Chase, Rockville, MD, and nearby locations.

Breast Implant Surgery

Breast augmentation procedures must be performed only by a qualified, trained, and experienced plastic surgeon, who is preferably board certified. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia, but in some cases, IV sedation may be used. The outcome of breast implant cosmetic surgery will be impacted by various choices that the surgeon makes in close coordination with the patient.

The right type, size, profile, shape, and texture of implants must be chosen to meet the patient’s aesthetic goals most closely. Incision types will include options such as inframammary incision, periareolar incision, trans-axillary incision, or transumbilical incision. Placement of the implants may be made under the chest muscle or between the breast tissue and chest muscle.
