Getting Safe and Natural-Looking Breast Augmentation in Newport Beach
Breast augmentation is the most commonly performed procedure in the U.S., with almost 300,000 cases last year alone. Naturally, this staggering number of surgeries means there are a lot of people performing them. If you’re considering breast augmentation in Newport Beach, don’t settle on just anyone; find a surgeon that’s on the cutting edge, has the proper experience and training, and who will take the time to walk you through the procedure. Katina Goshtasby of Newport Plastic Surgery explains how they operate, and what patients can expect from the operation.
Katina’s husband, Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon Dr. Parviz Hiroshi Goshtasby, has performed over 200 breast augmentation surgeries in both academic and cosmetic settings. Depending on the patient, some of these procedures have been more complicated. After performing several procedures, Dr. Goshtasby’s preferred method is placing the implants under the muscles; this ensures a more natural feel and appearance, especially in lean and athletic clients. When placed above the muscles, implants appear more artificial.
Silicone is the implant of choice for Newport Beach breast augmentation. More popular than the saline alternative, they’re less prone to rippling and better-emulate the feel of a natural breast. In addition, the FDA has cleared up the controversy about safety concerns with silicone implants, which are now considered to be as safe and effective as saline.
Katina explains patients can expect minimal pain and discomfort from the procedure during their one week of recovery. Any pain experiences can easily be remedied with prescription pain medications. Patients are monitored very closely, she adds, and most patients can expect to have their follow-up appointment the next day at the office in Newport Beach. Breast augmentation clients will schedule follow-ups before Dr. Goshtasby begins the operation.
There are many benefits to getting breast implants. Particularly for women that have been devastated by cancer, the operation can help build self-esteem and make them feel “womanly.” Katina explains that the strong association between fertility, womanhood, and breasts makes breast augmentation a significant part of the cancer recovery process for many women. Additionally, breast implants and other procedures can help restore women to pre-pregnancy form.
Katina adds that many patients feel the pressure and high expectations to keep their bodies in top form. In the warm weather of Southern California where you can be on the beach 10 months out of the year, people’s bodies are simply much more exposed.
