Just after the procedure (approximately 1 day), breast implants will set in a high and full position. By the end of the first week, typically patients see the breast implant settling. It generally take 3-4 months before having a full, natural teardrop shape.
Dr. Devgan utilizes a round shaped implant. There is also an implant called an anatomical shaped implant. A study was done with plastic surgeons, nurses, and other medical personnel in order to understand if the anatomical shaped implant and round implant could be differentiated once implanted in situ (in the body) by those with a trained eye. The study showed there was no significant difference in trained eyes visualizing the variance between patients having round implants or teardrop implants.
While there is no positive impact of having anatomical breast implants over round implants, there are negative effects. Anatomical implants are textured implants. In a previous post (http://laradevganmd.com/blog/2017/10/27/dr-devgan-featured-in-the-miami-herald-on-risk-of-alcl-with-breast-implants), Dr. Devgan discussed the newest information on textured implants and the correlation of ALCL, a rare form of lymphoma. Not only is there a concern for cancer with textured implants, but the product can settle radially after years thereby cause the breast to look misshapen.
While Dr. Devgan is more particular about utilizing round shaped implants, whether silicone implants or saline (salt) implants. She will utilize at minimum an hour of planning for an operation. In order to prepare, Dr. Devgan tailors each procedure using anatomic measurements, a patient’s ideal goals, and patient history. Once in the OR, Dr. Devgan utilizes her signature rapid recovery, no-touch technique to ensure patient safety and minimal downtime.
