A condition known as capsular contracture can occur when the scar tissue surrounding a breast implant becomes tight. The implant itself hasn’t become hard, only restricted by the scar that surrounds it. To help avoid this condition, patients should have the implant placed under the muscle and practice daily implant massage to help break up the scar tissue which can limit implant softness.

Congratulations! The next important step is to ensure your continued health & safety. A patient who has undergone surgery for weight loss may have nutritional issues to manage before being surgery-worthy for future improvements. A complete lab work-up and detailed consultation is necessary before planning any plastic surgery. Patient safety is of paramount importance. The ability to consume, digest and absorb nutrients is altered with many weight loss surgeries. Careful perioperative management helps to ensure rapid, complete wound healing after cosmetic surgery. Contact us for the bloodwork requirement list.  You may submit it to your lab of choice and when the labwork is completed, have them fax us the results.  Dr. Tim R. Love, MD will then review it and let us know if you are possibly a candidate for surgery.  We will then call you to schedule your consultation.

Dr. Tim R. Love, MD prefers the inframammary fold (crease below breast). This is the least conspicuous site for any potential scar to be visible either in a social circumstance or to you personally. Also, when implants eventually need to be removed and replaced, this is the site which will be used.

Fat grafting is an effective technique Dr. Tim R. Love, MD uses to help improve the outcome of several types of plastic surgery for his patients. It is used not only to improve the results for breast cancer reconstruction patients, but also for other breast surgeries and facial rejuvenation patients desiring extra fullness in specific areas. The advantage of this technique is that is uses one’s own harvested fat to inject into the desired areas. The patient benefits from liposuction of areas of his/her own unwanted fat while using their own fat for permanent improvement elsewhere.

Depending upon what type of work you do, usually a few days are adequate. It is best to restrict any lifting for about a week. Breast augmentation is typically an uneventful procedure which allows a patient to resume normal activities in a relatively short time.
