Pre-Operative Planning for Breast Implants Surgery
Planning your surgery is a complex process that involves many steps. During your initial consultation, our surgeons will evaluate your candidacy for the surgery, both physically and mentally. Physically, the extent of your desired volume or volume loss, asymmetry and careful assessment of your skin tone are critical. Aside from the physical parameters, you will also be assessed mentally to determine if your expectations for such a surgery are realistic. Be frank in discussing your expectations with our surgeons. He will be equally frank with you, describing your risks, benefits, and alternatives for each procedure. These discussions are of utmost importance before and after breast implants surgery. There are a number of options for most people seeking breast augmentation surgery. The choice between saline filled or gel-filled implants, placement above or below the muscle, and nipple, underarm or belly button incision, must all be discussed during your initial consultation with our surgeons so that the best decision for you before and after breast implants surgery can be made. Post operative care, post operative activity, limitations and time requirements to return to normal activities are all important parts of planning before after breast implants to maximize your final result.

Getting Ready For The Operating Room
You will be given specific instructions on how to prepare for before and after breast implants surgery. These will include guidelines on eating and drinking, smoking, and taking or avoiding certain vitamins and medications.
If you smoke, it is important to stop- both before and after breast implants surgery. Plan to quit at least three weeks before your surgery and not to resume for at least three weeks after your surgery. Avoid overexposure of your breasts to the sun both before and after breast implants. Do not go on a stringent diet, before or after breast implants – both of these situations can inhibit your ability to heal. If you develop a cold or infection of any kind, your surgery will probably be postponed.
You should always arrange for someone to drive you home after your surgery and to help you out for a day or two after you leave the clinic, if needed.
One of the most critical parts of your surgery is your anesthesia. In most center in North America, anesthesia is provided either by an M.D. who is specialized in anesthesia or a nurse certified in anesthesia. At BlueWater Surgery your anesthesia is performed by a fully certified anesthesiologist. We believe that this specialist plays as critical a role as your surgeon before and after breast implants surgery. There are four different types of anesthesia routinely used in plastic surgery.
1. General – Complete anesthesia, with intubation and respirations performed by an anesthetic machine.
2. I.V. Sedation – Sedation without airway intubation. You are generally very sleepy and unaware of your surroundings, but still conscious enough to maintain your airway.
3. Spinal – Paralysis and anesthesia of the lower body while completely awake.
4. Local Anesthetic – Anesthesia “numbing” of a specific area while completely awake.
Breast Augmentation can be performed under options 1 through 3. Most Breast Enlargements here at the Blue Water Surgery. are performed under option number 1 with wonderful results.
Details Of The Surgery
Breast Enlargement usually takes one to two hours, depending on the extent of the work required. There are several different incisions to choose from. Incisions can be made under the nipple, under the breast, through the armpit or through the belly button. In any case, every effort will be made to keep the scar as inconspicuous as possible and to keep you comfortable before and after breast implants surgery. Once inside the breast, our surgeons will lift the tissue to form a tear-dropped pocket to rest your implant in, whether you chose to go behind the breast tissue or behind the chest wall muscle (pectoral muscle), the implants are centered symmetrically behind both nipples.
Post-Operative for Breast Implants Surgery
It is a standard requirement that you spend as much time in the recovery room as you spend under anesthesia. Once you are conscious, comfortable, and your vital signs are stable, we will get you up, offer you something to drink, dress you (sports bra included) and take you to the bathroom before you depart for home. Post operative instructions will be given to you at the time of your discharge, which will include our 24 hour emergency phone number should a concern arise after normal office hours regarding before or after breast implants.
Your breasts will probably be swollen for the first few days and you’re likely to feel some pain and discomfort which can be controlled by the medication prescribed to you at the time of surgery.
Your sutures are dissolvable and will not require removal. You may find ends of the suture protruding through your skin; simply leave them in place until your next post operative visit.
