Why Get Breast Implants?

Discrepancies between breast sizes due to genetics can be frustrating, while naturally small breasts can make can some women feel insecure. The goal of cosmetic breast surgery is to improve shape and symmetry, restore lost volume due to weight loss or breast feeding, encourage better fit in clothing, and provide patients with a boost in confidence. We are committed to providing you with your ideal aesthetic by correcting a number of cosmetic breast issues.

Breast Augmentation with Implants in La Jolla
Dr. Pietraszek is renowned for cosmetic breast augmentation and is proud to offer the highest quality care in breast surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Pietraszek takes a number of factors into consideration to design your custom treatment plan, including existing breast tissue, natural body shape, and desired outcomes. Dr. Pietraszek comes highly recommended and is known for beautiful, natural, and long lasting results with a variety of implants, including:
Silicone – Patients report this gel variety of implant is hard to detect as anything other than natural and can be ideal for slender patients for whom saline implants may be too easily noticeable on their frames. However, silicone gel breast implants are inserted pre-filled and typically call for a larger incision. Dr. Pietraszek takes every measure to ensure that incisions are discreet and heal appropriately to be as indistinct as possible.
Saline – These implants are inserted and then filled, creating a smaller incision site during placement. Saline may be an excellent choice for patients with moderate breast size who wish for augmentation, as the existing tissue can make the implant less noticeable. Should any complications with an implant occur, they may be more easily detectable with the saline variety.
Ideal Implant – This particular brand of saline filled implant is patently designed to provide natural-looking results that feel like your own breast tissue. The Ideal implant is also made to be strong and provide for conservative surgery with smaller incisions.
Form Stable – Compared to traditional silicone implants, the form stable variety are made of a denser type of silicone that holds its shape (think of the gel-like material of a gummy bear), doesn’t leak, and is textured to feel like real breasts. Form stable implants are also tear-drop shaped for a natural aesthetic.
It’s important to note that no one breast implant is better than the other as a general rule; there are benefits to each variety of implant, including variations in overall shape such as round or tear-drop; coming to the right decision is totally dependent upon your needs and preferences as a patient.
The Recovery Process
The 48 hours immediately following your procedure call for plenty of rest. While swelling is common in the recovery phase, this tends to diminish after your first week; breasts may appear a full size bigger than final results during this time. Reducing activity during the first few weeks of healing can help to minimize the amount and duration of post-treatment swelling. At the six week mark, most exercise is typically cleared. The healing process also involves check-up appointments with Dr. Pietraszek to ensure that you are comfortable, check on scar progress, and answer any questions you may have about what to expect as you continue to heal.
