How is breast augmentation in Miami performed?

 During the breast augmentation in Miami procedure, Dr. Spera will make a single cut or incision in one of these three places. It is either under your arm (axillary), the crease under your breast (inframammary), or around your nipple (periareolar).

After making the single cut, your surgeon will separate the breast tissue from the muscles and connective tissues in your chest. It creates a pocket either in front or behind the outermost muscles of your chest wall. Then, he will insert the implant into this pocket and center it at the back of your nipple.

Saline implants are inserted empty and then filled with sterile salt water once they are already in place. Silicone implants are pre-filled with silicone gel.

When the implant is already in place, the plastic surgeon will close the incision, typically with sutures, and bandage it with skin adhesive and surgical tape.

Breast Augmentation in Miami Techniques

Breast augmentation is a transformative procedure that enhances the size and shape of the breasts. Dr. Carlos Spera, a renowned plastic surgeon in Miami, offers a range of advanced techniques to ensure the best possible results for his patients. Here’s a detailed overview of the types of breast augmentation approaches he specializes in:

  • Trans-umbilical Breast Augmentation (TUBA) Approach
    • Description: The TUBA approach, also known as Trans-umbilical Breast Augmentation, is a unique technique where breast implants are inserted through an incision made in the belly button.
    • Advantages: One of the standout benefits of this method is the absence of visible scars either under the arms or on the breasts. This approach is celebrated for its discreet nature. Furthermore, many women who have chosen the TUBA method report experiencing minimal pain post-surgery and a notably faster recovery compared to other techniques.
  • Trans-axillary Breast Augmentation Approach
    • Description: The trans-axillary approach, commonly referred to as the armpit method, is a technique where breast augmentation is achieved by making an incision in the armpit.
    • Advantages: This method allows Dr. Carlos Spera to position the breast implant under the chest muscle with precision, ensuring a natural look without causing significant disturbance to the breast tissue. The absence of incisions on the breast itself further ensures minimal scarring.
  • Infra-mammary Breast Augmentation Approach
    • Description: The infra-mammary approach is one of the most popular and versatile techniques in breast augmentation. The incision is made in the crease where the breast meets the chest wall.
    • Advantages: This method is favored for its adaptability, allowing for the insertion of all types of breast implants. The infra-mammary incision provides an optimal view for the surgeon, ensuring precise implant placement. Additionally, the healing process is swift, with the resulting scar being almost imperceptible as it blends seamlessly into the natural skin fold.
  • Peri-areolar Breast Augmentation Approach
    • Description: The peri-areolar approach involves making an incision around the areola, the darkened skin surrounding the nipple.
    • Advantages: When healed properly, the peri-areolar incision can be less visible, blending into the natural transition of the areola and breast skin.
    • Considerations: While this method offers aesthetic benefits, it’s essential to note that there’s a slightly higher chance of changes in nipple sensation. Precision in closing the incision is crucial to prevent irregular breast tissue formation underneath. Additionally, there’s a size limitation for silicone implants that can be inserted through this incision.

Most women can qualify for breast augmentation in Miami. It is essential that you be open and honest with your plastic surgeon during your consultation.

What are the risks with breast augmentation?

 Every plastic surgery procedure has risks. Just like any other plastic surgery, it is imperative on your part to know the underlying risks of having a breast augmentation in Miami. It can scar tissues that distort the shape of the breast implants or capsular contracture, breast pain, infection, changes in breast and nipple sensation, implant position changes, and implant leakage or rupture, bleeding, fluid accumulation, to name some.

Capsular contracture refers to the hardening of the area around the breast implant. It can change the shape of the implant, which can cause pain. The scars may become thick, red, and painful.

Correcting these underlying risks and complications might require more plastic surgery procedures to either remove or replace the breast implants.

What is the recovery after a breast augmentation like?

 A week following the breast augmentation plastic surgery, soreness and swelling are likely to be evident. It is also possible that bruising will be seen. You can expect scars to diminish over time; however, they will not disappear completely.

While you are recovering from breast augmentation, wearing a compression bandage or sports bra might be helpful, and provide extra support and positioning of the breast implants. Dr. Carlos Spera—renowned plastic surgery in Miami might prescribe pain medications if necessary.

It is essential to obey all instructions given by the plastic surgeon when you resume your usual routine. If you do not have any physically demanding job, you might be able to go back to your work a week following the plastic surgery. Get rid of any strenuous activities or anything that will increase your blood pressure or pulse for at least two weeks. While you are healing, remember that your breasts will be sensitive to jarring movements or physical contact.

If the plastic surgeon used sutures that do not absorb on their own or placed drainage tubes near your breasts, you need to undergo a follow-up appointment for removal.

If you notice redness or feel some warmth in your breasts or have a high fever, you might have an infection. Contact us as soon as possible, especially if you have shortness of breath or chest pain.
