Are you thinking about a cosmetic procedure, but not sure if it will fix an issue or create more problems? It is not uncommon to have questions like this before undergoing a cosmetic procedure. As a result, Dr. Alqulali stresses the importance of asking questions during your patient consultation.
One procedure that patients frequently have questions about is the breast augmentation. Some of the most common questions involve things like determining the best size implant for a particular body type, whether the implant should go above or below the chest muscle, and where the incisions should go.
Another common question is how the procedure will change the size, shape and position of the nipples. Some women want a cosmetic change to their nipples, while others do not want any change to their nipple size.
Here is some information to help women who are interested in the breast augmentation procedure but who still have questions:
If you're adding a breast-lift to your breast implant augmentation, your nipples and areolas may change. This benefit may be of interest for women who have large areolas or asymmetrical nipples. The breast-lift will remove excess skin and tissue and give Dr. Alqulali the opportunity to address the size of the areola and the position of the nipple.
Your nipple position may change after your implants settle. If your nipple placement appears too high after your procedure, don't worry; in most cases, the nipple position will soften slightly and end up in a more natural position a few months after your breast augmentation.
Breast augmentation can help correct inverted nipples. Researchers estimate that 10 to 20 percent of women are born with flat or inverted nipples. Frequently, during a breast implant augmentation, inverted nipples may be turned right side out.
Many women can still breastfeed successfully after breast implant augmentation. If you are planning to breastfeed after your breast implant augmentation, let Dr. Alqulali know before your procedure.
