How to Choose Breast Implants

How to Choose Breast Implants
Breast implants are available in various types, sizes, and shapes. The choice of implants will make an impact on the final results of breast augmentation surgery. Board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin of Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center will guide the patient through the implant selection process.
They receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, and surrounding communities.

Type of Implants

Saline and Silicone Implants
The FDA has approved saline and silicone gel based breast implants for cosmetic breast enhancement. Both types of implants are popular, and have their own pros and cons. Silicone implants have emerged as a leader in recent years because of pleasing aesthetics, more natural looking touch and feel, and less rippling under the breast.
Saline implants, on the other hand, require a relatively shorter incision, can be customized for volume, and the saline solution is completely biocompatible in case of implant damage. However, advanced qualities of silicone implants today are equally safe because the highly viscose silicone gel does not leak to other areas of the body in case of implant damage.
Round and Tear Drop Implants
Breast implants are available in round shape as well as anatomical or tear drop shape. Patients can choose the shape that suits better with their overall breast anatomy. Tear drop implants are always textured to allow for the correct orientation to be maintained. Round implants may also have a plain surface if needed.
Gummy Bear Implants
Gummy Bear or form stable implants are a recent innovation in silicone implants. These implants include a highly cohesive silicone gel, which allows the shape of the breasts to be maintained nicely. These implants are firmer and textured, and may sometimes require a bigger incision.

Type of Implant Placement

Breast implants may be surgically placed above the pectoral muscle or below it, depending on the surgical plan prepared in advance. In case the implant is placed above the pectoral muscle, beneath the breast tissue, it is called subglandular placement.
The other option is to place the implant below the pectoral muscle, which is called submuscular placement. Results usually appear to be more natural in this option. This surgery is relatively more invasive, but results are better, infection rate is lower and the risk of capsular contracture may be reduced.
Patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, and nearby areas have an opportunity to receive breast implant surgery at MBody.

Incision Type

Breast implants can be placed through incisions made in the breast crease (inframammary incision), around the areola (areolar incision), under the arm (transaxillary incision), or even through the naven (transumbilical incision) in some cases.
The type of incision will be determined in accordance with the type of implants chose and the size of implants. Three leading breast implant manufacturers in the US, which are approved by the FDA, include Allergan, Mentor, and Sierra.

Your Fairfax County CoolSculpting Medical Center

Lifestyle challenges and other factors may cause the development of pockets of stubborn fats in certain areas of the body. While these fats can be reduced with liposuction cosmetic surgery, but not every patient may be ready to undergo an invasive procedure to enhance body contours and achieve improved body aesthetics. This is where a surgeon may offer CoolSculpting, which is a completely non-invasive fat reduction procedure.

CoolSculpting at MBody

The plastic surgeons and the staff at MBody completely understand the challenges of an average woman or man when they try to sculpt a desirable physique on their own. If the fat deposits have become stubborn over time, these may not respond to diet or exercise. At the same time, the individual may be reluctant to choose fat reduction with cosmetic surgery because of the typical logistical and budgetary challenges associated with it.
For all such patients who are keen to improve their body contours without surgery, MBody offers advanced and innovative CoolSculpting body contouring technology by Zeltiq. This next generation fat reduction procedure is entirely non-invasive, and involves little or no downtime. Its unique cooling process has been formulated by Harvard scientists, and the procedure has been cleared by the FDA.

The treatment provider will evaluate the patient’s anatomy and their unique aesthetic needs, and accordingly prepare a custom-designed CoolSculpting treatment plan.
Each customized CoolSculpting session will last for about one hour. The treatment requires no anesthesia, and no cuts, incisions or even injections are involved. At MBody, the procedure will be performed in the comfortable environs of one of the two pristine practice facilities in Vienna and Richmond, VA. The patient can simply relax during the nearly pain-free CoolSculpting session, or read, watch a movie, or listen to music.

Commitment to Five C’s

The MBody center distinguishes itself through its dedicated service to its patients and an unwavering commitment to the Five C’s of cosmetic enhancement that are a part of every procedure at the practice. Patients seeking CoolSculpting treatment at MBody can be assured of these Five C’s, which include Convenience, Customization, Consistency, Cutting-edge, and Communication.

Mommy Makeover Surgery in Richmond

Mommy Makeover Surgery Overview | Richmond Mommy Makeover Surgery in Richmond

Pregnancy is a beautiful experience, but it can eventually have an impact on a mother’s overall physical appearance. Excess fat pockets, loose skin, stretch marks, and breast volume loss or gain are some of the common concerns that may occur after pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding. A mommy makeover plastic surgery procedure is a comprehensive solution to help a mom restore her pre-pregnancy figure.
The surgeon will identify the areas that may require cosmetic procedures as a part of a mommy makeover. An elaborate surgical plan will be prepared after considering the patient’s health, anatomical needs, and her personal aesthetic goals.
Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin are board certified plastic surgeons providing mommy makeover and other procedures to patients in Richmond, VA and surrounding communities, including Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, and Chevy Chase.

Candidacy

If a mom is bothered by the adverse aesthetic effects of pregnancy in multiple areas of her body, she may make a suitable candidate for a mommy makeover plastic surgery. Moms who have received a C-section surgery will also make equally good candidates as the ones who have given a natural birth.
The surgeon will choose a candidate who does not have plans for another pregnancy in the foreseeable future. The general health of the woman, medical history and past surgeries, and the woman’s unique aesthetic goals will also be taken into account while deciding her candidature for a mommy makeover.

Surgery

A mommy makeover is one of the most customizable procedures, and the best surgical plan will be finalized in close consultation between the plastic surgeon and the patient. Two or more of the following procedures are generally included as a part of a mommy makeover:
• Breast Implants
• Breast Lift
• Breast Reduction
Liposuction
• Abdominoplasty
• Body Lift
Body Contouring
• Cellulite Reduction
• Stretch Mark Removal
Non-invasive Treatments
Breast augmentation may be a part of a mommy makeover if the candidate has lost considerable breast volume following pregnancy or breastfeeding. If the breasts are heavily sagging, a breast lift may be included. In some cases, the woman may develop excessively large breasts, which can be corrected with breast reduction surgery.
One of the most popular procedures that is included in mommy makeovers is liposuction, which can help enhance body contours with less invasive techniques. Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin receive patients from in and around Richmond, VA and other areas such as Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, and Chevy Chase for mommy makeover surgery.
Non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures may also be included as a part of a mommy makeover.

Recovery and Results

Depending on the number and extent of surgical procedures involved, a patient’s initial recovery may take about two to four weeks. Most patients are usually able to resume their normal routine or return to work in about two weeks. Lifting of heavy weights and vigorous exercises should be avoided for one to two months. The results with a mommy makeover will establish gradually over several months as swelling and bruising subsides entirely.

Tummy Tuck Surgery (Abdominoplasty) in Richmond

Tummy Tuck Surgery (Abdominoplasty) in Richmond
Tummy Tuck Surgery (Abdominoplasty) in Richmond

Abdominoplasty, commonly known as tummy tuck, is a plastic surgery procedure designed to create a tighter, smoother and flatter abdominal contour. In most cases, tummy tuck will involve excision of loose skin and fat reduction in the abdomen, but sometimes it may also involve tightening of loose or separated underlying muscles. Tummy tuck is a major procedure and should only be performed by a highly trained, awesome, and astute plastic surgeon.
The surgeon will recommend the most appropriate surgical technique in accordance with the patient’s anatomical needs and personal aesthetic goals. Board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin provide tummy tuck to patients in Richmond area, and various other communities, including Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, and Chevy Chase.

Surgical Techniques

Tummy tuck plastic surgery may be performed using any of the following techniques as per the patient’s unique needs:
Traditional Abdominoplasty
Traditional abdominoplasty or full tummy tuck is one of the commonly used techniques. The surgeon will make a major hip to hip incision, apart from small incisions around the belly button. Through the incisions, the entire abdominal area will be treated for reducing excess skin and fat, tightening weak muscles, and repositioning of the navel.
Mini Tummy Tuck
Mini tummy tuck or partial abdominoplasty procedure is aimed at treating only the lower abdominal area. It involves only one minor incision to make subtle enhancements or perform a maintenance procedure. Leading plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin receive patients from Richmond area and various other communities for this procedure.
Endoscopic Abdominoplasty
In this procedure, the surgeon will insert a small camera through the incision, which will enable them to have a clear view of the underlying abdominal structures on a monitor. This technique will avoid the need for a larger incision, and can produce more targeted and precise results.
Extended Abdominoplasty
This procedure is similar to traditional tummy tuck, but it additionally involves fat reduction from the flanks or love handles on either side of the waist. Therefore, a more comprehensive procedure is performed to produce even looking results and overall enhanced abdominal contours.
Circumferential Abdominoplasty
If a candidate suffers from a large amount of loose skin in the abdominal area following a major weight loss, the surgeon may recommend this technique. Fat removal may not be involved in this technique, and body contours will be improved through excision of loose abdominal skin.

Recovery

The recovery in case of partial abdominoplasty will only take about three to five days, but if a traditional or extended tummy tuck procedure is performed, the patient may require 10 to 14 days before returning to their regular routine. Lifting of heavy weights and strenuous activities should be avoided for at least four to six weeks. The patient may need to wear a compression garment in the treated area for several weeks to support healing.

Results

It will take several months for the results of tummy tuck to appear fully. In most cases, the results will last for many years as long as the patient maintains a balanced diet and exercise regimen.
Results with tummy tuck will be fully established over several months, and can last for many years. The condition is that the patient should maintain a balanced diet and active lifestyle to prolong the results. The fat can return if bad eating habits and lethargy either kicks in or continues. Yes, you can have this surgery again, you can have it for as many times as you like but it is healthier and better for your body if you exercise regularly and eat nutritious food.
