procedure targets those women who are looking for improvement,
makes Dr. Byun’s technique different from other surgeons?
Dr. Byun has the ability to create
a natural outcome for women interested in enhancing their
breasts. There are three specific sites Dr. Byun uses
for incisions: the axillary, the areola, and the inframammary
fold. All three sites result in minimal scarring. The
breast tissue and skin create a pocket where the implant
will be placed either directly behind the breast tissue
or underneath your chest wall muscle. The implants are
then centered beneath your nipples. He chooses to place
the implants underneath the breast muscle because he believes
it will result in a natural outcome. It will give the
breasts a youthful, perkier appeal.
much done time is involved?
A ten day follow up appointment
is needed so Dr. Byun can remove sutures and show you
a few massage techniques to do at home. You're likely
to feel soreness and pain for few days following surgery.
After 48 hours, you may remove any gauze dressings and
shower. A sports bra with a zipper in front is recommended
to purchase and wear for several weeks. Swelling in your
breasts may take three to five weeks to disappear; however,
you may return in work with light duty in three to four
weeks following surgery. Extraneous work or lifting should
be avoided for a couple of months after surgery.
