Composite Breast Augmentation
After composite breast augmentation patients can expect:
Since composite breast augmentation is a combination of three separate procedures, it is more involved than traditional breast augmentation alone.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia in a certified outpatient facility. Prior to surgery, you will have worked with Dr. Sieber using Vecta 3D imaging to decide on implant size and style that achieves your goals for surgery.
The procedure begins with Dr. Sieber making a pocket for the breast implant beneath the chest muscle. This helps to achieve a more natural result and also provides support for the implant over time.
Next liposuction is performed on whichever areas were discussed prior to surgery. For more information on the steps involved in liposuction visit (hyperlink to lipo page).
After processing the fat, it will be reinjected into the breast tissue to shape and enhance the breast tissue even more than an implant along. The extra fat also provides additional coverage of the implant giving a more natural look and feel to the breast.
