As with any surgical procedure, there are risks of infection, bleeding and poor healing can occur. Other risks include but are not limited to capsular contracture, asymmetry, implant deflation or rupture and poor scarring. Typically, these complications require breast implant revision surgery.
There are two types of breast implants available: Saline and Silicone. Once Dr. Haupt has deemed you a candidate for surgery, he will discuss all your implant choices, including whether to go with saline vs. silicone implants as well as the size, shape and texture of your implants.There are many different styles of breast implant available.
Recovery time for most patients involve a rest period of 24 to 48 hours post surgery. Dr Haupt prescribes medication for pain, nausea and an antibiotic to prevent infection. You will likely experience some soreness and swelling for a few weeks. Your daily activities such as lift, pulling, pushing will be limited. At the time of your first post op visit with Dr Haupt, detailed instructions will be given to each patient depending on their implant style and current status. Regular visits to see Dr. Haupt will continue for the first year after surgery.
Believe it or not, breast implants do have warranties. Sientra, Mentor and Allergan offer warranties against implant ruptures or deflations. In some cases they also provide financial assistance for surgical fees and the replacement of failed implants within the first 10 years.
Dr. Haupt also offers a Patient Protection Plan at an additional cost. Details of the plan are discussed with each patient at the time of consultation.
Pricing for breast augmentation will vary depending on the type of implant used and if any additional procedures, such as a lift, are required. Our pricing does include OR and anesthesia fees, surgeon fees, surgical bras and all follow up appointments with Dr. Haupt.
