Breast Implants Placed by Dr. Alissa M. Shulman of Sovereign Plastic Surgery in Sarasota, FL
Breast implants are medical devices designed to enhance the shape and fullness of a woman’s breasts. While the ultimate goal of any breast augmentation procedure is usually the same, no two patients or surgeries are exactly alike. For instance, there are several types of breast implants, as well as many options regarding their shape, size, and placement. To ensure the best possible surgical outcome, it’s important for a woman to educate herself so that she can make fully informed decisions on these matters, some of which are very complex. The best way to do so is to consult with an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Alissa M. Shulman. A highly skilled breast surgeon who is also a gifted artist and sculptor, Dr. Shulman is available for consultations at Sovereign Plastic Surgery, the clinic she founded in Sarasota, FL, in 2009.
To determine whether a prospective patient is a good candidate for the surgical placement of breast implants, Dr. Shulman will take some time to get to know her by carefully reviewing her medical history, anatomy, aesthetic concerns, and desired outcome. If Dr. Shulman believes that the patient’s goals can be achieved with breast augmentation surgery, she can recommend an appropriate procedure. Dr. Shulman can use any of several techniques to surgically place breast implants, such as the inframammary approach, in which an incision is made in the inframammary crease at the base of the breast.
Dr. Shulman’s determination of the best surgical approach for placing breast implants will depend on several individual factors, including the patient’s:
- Body size
- Body type
- Existing breast tissue
If the patient elects to proceed, Dr. Shulman will fully explain the details of the recommended procedure and guide the patient’s decision-making on several key points to help her make educated decisions regarding the size, type, and profile of her breast implants. She will also discuss the risks of the procedure, and explain how the patient can minimize those risks by caring for her breasts properly afterward, using prescribed medications, adhering to a follow-up schedule, and contacting her office in Sarasota, Florida, promptly to discuss any concerns.
