Common questions about cosmetic surgery
What are the benefits of tumescent anesthesia?
Our patients have experienced less blood loss during the procedure, less bruising to the tissue, shorter recovery time, less post-operative pain and fewer complications from anesthesia.
Are there risks with breast augmentation?
As with any surgery, there is a risk of complications related to infection or reaction to anesthesia. Rare side effects and surgical outcomes may include: capsular contracture, displaced or expelled implants, broken blood vessels or permanent sensation loss in the nipples or breasts
Can breast augmentation improve the appearance of sagging breasts?
No, but a breast lift in combination with breast augmentation can achieve the desired results.
What does “tumescent” mean and how does it work?
The word “tumescent” literally means “swollen,” which is how this anesthetic works. First, Dr. Greenberg injects the tissue with diluted lidocaine, a local anesthetic, and epinephrine, a blood vessel constrictor. The lidocaine not only numbs the area so that you won’t feel pain, but it also has an antibacterial affect to lessen the risk of infection.
Will I still have feeling in my nipples?
Sensation in your nipples may be reduced temporarily but should return to normal as your breasts heal.
Will I be able to breastfeed after breast augmentation?
Breastfeeding is usually not hindered after breast augmentation
If you are between 18 and 60 years old, not pregnant, in good health and have a realistic and healthy mindset regarding expectations and outcomes, you are an ideal candidate for cosmetic surgery.
Reserve your private consultation with Dr. Greenberg to learn why so many women are choosing awake breast augmentation to enhance their silhouettes and boost confidence.
