45)  On the other hand, Hollywood certainly has no shortage of implants among non-celebrity starlets.  Watch a bunch of late night cable TV swill and you'll learn to spot implants at a glance.  If you sit through enough T&A exploitation movies to really get a good clear idea of how implants usually end up looking, I doubt very much that you will want to look that way yourself.  I would recommend that anyone who thinks they want implants should try this before making a final decision.  Anyone who can watch something like, say, Caged Heat 3000 and still want to look that way is weirder than I like to imagine.
It remains to be seen whether implants of this third generation will continue to be used or if forthcoming study results (and FDA decisions) will bring about still another generation of implants. Furthermore, there is less information available about saline implants than silicone-gel implants—silicone gel was the “fill of choice” until the 1990s. Saline implants contain a harmless saltwater solution, cannot have silicone leakage (because they don't contain silicone), and appear to have lower rates of capsular contracture. Still, the jury will be out until more studies are forthcoming.
Combining a breast lift with implants is a good way to get the most from your surgery. You don't need to add as much volume to the implant when you also have a breast lift, which will position the breasts correctly and give them shape. When these two procedures are combined, your breasts will increase in cup size but also look better than with just one procedure.
In the study Fat Grafting to the Breast Revisited: Safety and Efficacy (2007), the investigators reported that the autologous fat was harvested by liposuction, using a 10-ml syringe attached to a two-hole Coleman harvesting cannula; after centrifugation, the refined breast filler fat was transferred to 3-ml syringes. Blunt infiltration cannulas were used to emplace the fat through 2-mm incisions; the blunt cannula injection method allowed greater dispersion of small aliquots (equal measures) of fat, and reduced the possibility of intravascular fat injection; no sharp needles are used for fat-graft injection to the breasts. The 2-mm incisions were positioned to allow the infiltration (emplacement) of fat grafts from at least two directions; a 0.2 ml fat volume was emplaced with each withdrawal of the cannula.[113]
Tell your doctor if you have received any other botulinum toxin product in the last 4 months; have received injections of botulinum toxin such as Myobloc®, Dysport®, or Xeomin® in the past (tell your doctor exactly which product you received); have recently received an antibiotic by injection; take muscle relaxants; take an allergy or cold medicine; take a sleep medicine; take aspirin-like products or blood thinners.
We know that every woman is unique in both her desires and her body shape. With that in mind, we take the time during the pre-operative consultations to learn what each patient hopes to gain from breast augmentation surgery and to decide which implant type and implant placement is best. In this way, every one of our patients enjoys completely customized treatment designed with her specific goals in mind.
