Top Provider of Breast Augmentation

As a top provider of breast augmentations in Scottsdale & Phoenix, Dr. Malek sees many prospective patients that elect to have a Phoenix breast augmentation when they wish to improve the shape or enhance their natural breasts. In other cases, time or pregnancy, and breastfeeding have taken their toll, leaving the breast tissue stretched, sagging, or what were once plump, firm breasts now appearing aged and deflated. Some patients have the procedure in conjunction with a breast lift, to restore a more youthful look after the skin and tissue have been stretched.

Why Get Breast Augmentation?

You have many choices when it comes to deciding on your optimum course of action and it depends to some degree on what you’d like done and why. From double mastectomies to childbirth, there are many reasons breasts are augmented. One of your core decisions, made with the guidance of your doctor, is what type of implant is best for you.

Women can often be disappointed with the size and / or volume of their breasts. A breast augmentation can provide the desired change in a woman’s breasts by improving the volume and positioning. The treatment results in a more attractive appearance that can help foster high self-confidence.

As one of the top providers of breast augmentation Phoenix has to offer, Dr. Marc Malek will not rest until you have achieved the cosmetic goals you are striving to attain.

Why women choose to have a breast augmentation procedure:

Breast augmentation procedures are done to increase the size and proportions of a woman’s breasts. There are many reasons why women choose to have the breast augmentation procedure, some of which include:

  • Enlarging the breasts to make the body more proportional.
  • Reshaping and enlarging breasts that have lost their shape due to breast feeding or the natural aging process.
  • Improve breast symmetry; balancing the appearance of breasts that differ in size or shape.
  • Reshaping and enlarging the breasts to improve your look in and out of clothes thus increasing self-confidence.

Types of Breast Implants

Saline breast implant: These implants are a shell filled with saline salt water. They are highly adjustable, less expensive, and offer more choices in volume. They can also be implanted through a shorter incision and smaller scar. These implants may be ideal for larger women who require more implant coverage.

Silicone breast implants: Silicone gel feels very similar to natural breast tissue, with softness and give. These implants are extremely popular with patients of all dimensions, and often considered the best option for women with smaller frames. Silicone implants may require periodic examination via ultrasound or MRI screening to monitor their condition.

Form-Stable implants: These implants are silicone based and crafted to maintain their shape, with a slightly firmer feel than other implants. Shaped to match the natural breast shape, these implants are often chosen for a more natural look.

Round breast implants: Used for their fuller appearance, their consistent shape makes these implants extremely stable.

Smooth breast implants: The softest feeling implant with the most natural movement and bounce. Dr. Malek will advise you if this implant is right for you.

The Breast Augmentation Procedure

A breast augmentation can be delivered in the form of implants. They can be produced from silicone or saline material. They are placed through incisions, which are made in the most inconspicuous locations, disguising any scars. Dr. Malek is dedicated to his patients’ well-being and will use the most comfortable treatment techniques to deliver the right result.

Breast implants are not considered lifetime devices. You will likely undergo implant removal with or without replacement over the course of your life; therefore, breast augmentation implant surgery requires careful consideration.

Candidates for Breast Augmentation in Phoenix & Scottsdale

As Dr. Malek is one of the top providers of breast augmentation Scottsdale & Phoenix have to offer, is extremely adept at assessing what type of implant is correct for you. He will thoroughly consult with you to understand your unique needs and aesthetic goals, as well as the status of your health to determine whether or not you are an ideal candidate for breast augmentation surgery. Typically, breast augmentation candidates must be:

  • 18 years of age or older for saline implants, and 22 years of age or older for silicone implants.
  • In good general health.
  • Able to undergo surgery and able to undergo IV sedation or general anesthesia.
  • Not currently pregnant or breastfeeding, or planning to become pregnant or start breastfeeding during recovery from surgery.
  • Free of cancer, infection, immune deficiencies, and any other diseases or conditions that could compromise recovery.
  • Able to take recovery time off from work, school, or other obligations (patients with tight schedules should consider our 24-hour recovery augmentation procedure).
  • Committed to attending follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing.

Emotional characteristics of breast augmentation candidates:

  • A desire to achieve symmetry between the breasts.
  • A desire to achieve larger breasts.
  • A desire to broaden clothing options.
  • A desire to reconstruct the bust line following a mastectomy.
  • A desire to refine the bust line so that it better complements the hips and overall figure.
  • A desire to feel more confident in general about one's appearance.
  • Confidence in the decision to undergo breast augmentation.

Recovery from Breast Augmentation

All breast augmentation procedures are performed in our Scottsdale surgical center as an outpatient procedure, so patients will have the freedom of returning home after the breast augmentation surgery.

You will be required to wear a sports bra for a minimum of six weeks following your breast augmentation surgery and your sutures will be removed in 7-10 days following your surgery. Your initial recovery will usually last several days, and your breasts may remain swollen, sore and sensitive to physical contact for a month or longer.

Prior to your breast augmentation, Dr. Malek will prescribe necessary medication to assist with any minor discomfort. Typically, patients are able to return to work approximately one week after breast augmentation surgery.

Most patients are able to perform light exercise, not involving the chest muscles, two weeks after their surgical procedure. Heavier exercise and full activity may resume after 6 weeks. Although results from surgery are evident immediately, residual swelling may last for several weeks. The breasts should take their final shape and position within two to six months.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

COVID-19 TESTING

I am very pleased to inform you that we have been able to secure antibody testing for our patients in order to allow for elective procedures in compliance with AZ Dept of Health and Governor Ducey’s Executive order. We hope everyone understands the test is mandatory per the order.

Antibody tests are extremely scarce and range in cost from $ 75-400. Still, the mass majority are not FDA approved as of yet so we are using local experience by medical practices handling COVID-19 to ascertain the quality of the test we have chosen for our patients.

The test examines two Antibodies.

IgM-indicates a recent infection within 30 days.

IgG indicates conversion from a distant infection meaning you potentially have immunity.

Test Results:

If you test positive for IgM then your surgery will be delayed at least 30 days until clear by a retest.

Although the practice would like to provide these tests at no charge, due to the elective nature of our procedures we will not receive any from the Health Department or any government agency. I encourage all of our patients who are able to seek their own testing either at free community locations or through their practitioner if covered by insurance. Otherwise, we can provide an antibody test to all preop patients at our own cost of purchase ($75). Some may require a second test depending on the initial result. Once again it is a mandate per the health dept to obtain testing prior to any elective procedure at any and all surgical facilities in Arizona.

I and the entire staff at Preferred Plastic Surgery will continue to be devoted to your safety as our utmost priority.

Please review our practice protocol below for our reopening. I believe it is beyond comprehensive and likely to set the new standard of patient flow and care during these challenging times. It will reassure any and all of your concerns regarding your safety and reduction of all unnecessary exposure during your time in our facility.
