Kansas City Plastic Surgery - Breast Implants

Getting Breast Implants

Implants are the most common way that women increase the size of their breasts. Augmentation surgery is performed by inserting breast implants behind the tissue of each breast.

The breast implants are made of medical-grade, biocompatible, textured or smooth silicone shells, which are filled with sterile saline (saltwater) solution or silicone gel. Implants can be sized from one cup size up or larger.

4 Top Questions For People Considering A Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery is a common procedure performed by Dr. Rast in our Kansas City plastic surgery clinic. Tummy tucks remove fat, improve body contours, eliminate sagging/loose skin, and re-firm weakened abdominal muscles. If you’re considering a tummy tuck, read through the following frequently asked questions we often hear at initial consultations.

Am I A Good Tummy Tuck Candidate?

We recommend that all tummy tuck patients are nonsmokers and in generally good health. Patients should be moderately fit and have some overall muscle tone. Abdominoplasty is for the removal of loose/sagging skin and improving weakened abdominal muscles along with fat removal. If fat removal is your only goal – we typically recommend liposuction.

Note that if you are considering getting pregnant in the future, your tummy tuck should be postponed until after.

How Long Is Recovery?

Following all of Dr. Rast’s instructions is essential to your recovery.  Avoiding bending, straining, or lifting anything for several days is also extremely important. Normal activity can be resumed within a few days of surgery, although there will be discomfort. Initial wound healing will take up to ten days. If no heavy lifting or vigorous activity is needed, our patients can return to work within a few weeks.

What Can I Expect Long-Term?

Abdominoplasty scars will be permanent and it may take over a year for the incision lines to fade and improve. Fortunately, normal clothing and even swimsuits should effectively conceal your scars.

Will My Tummy Tuck Last Forever?

As long as your fitness and weight is maintained, your improved body contours should continue to last. Loss of firmness is natural with aging but it should be minimal.
