A return patient Brisia comes back to have a breast augmentation and brazilian butt lift with Dr. David Kim. We had the opportunity to follow Brisia through this process before and after her procedure.
Breast size and shape are important, so be honest and open about your expectations when talking with your surgeon.
Implant type and size will be determined not just on your desired increase in size but more importantly on your breast anatomy, skin elasticity and body type.
Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water. They can be filled with varying amounts of saline which can affect the shape, firmness and feel of the breast. Should the implant shell leak, a saline implant will collapse and the saline will be absorbed and naturally expelled by the body.
Silicone implants are filled with an elastic gel. The gel feels and moves much like natural breast tissue. If the implant leaks, the gel may remain within the implant shell, or may escape into the breast implant pocket. The method for inserting and positioning implants depends on the type of implant, degree of enlargement desired, your body type, and your personal preferences as well as Dr. Kim's recommendations.
The results of breast augmentation are immediately visible. Over time, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover and realize the fulfillment of your goal for fuller breasts.
Brazilian butt lift involves suctioning fat from one part of the body and transferring the fat to the buttocks for a fuller and more shapely buttocks. The advantage over an implant is the more natural feel of the buttocks , as well as less chance for infection, and no concerns with implant shifting.
