One of the most popular procedures performed by Dr. Seballos is breast enlargement surgery. Often, patients have this surgery done so that they can fit better in clothing, have breasts that are more proportional to their bodies, to help them feel more confident, or to return fullness to the breasts after pregnancy or breast feeding. The procedure is done under general anesthesia. The implants are generally placed under the pectoralis muscle through either a breast crease incision, through the areolar margin, or the armpit. Dr. Seballos prefers smooth, round saline implants. Silicone gel implants have been re-introduced into the market for 22-year-old patients or older, but you will have to be enrolled in the post approval silicone study as mandated by the gel implant manufacturers. Recommendations are for an MRI to be done of the breasts 3 years post op and every two years afterwards for study enrollees. As of this time, it is not anticipated that insurance companies will pay for these MRI’s. The consultation is critical is evaluating patients pre-op concerns and goals. Also, you will have an opportunity to try on implant sizers to roughly estimate the size you desire and order the implant size that you feel most comfortable with.
