Breast Implants: Cleavage Never Goes Out of Style

Breast Augmentation, Dr. CappuccinoBreast augmentation is the #1 cosmetic surgical procedure performed in the United States, and has increased 30% since the year 2000. As an experienced board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Guy Cappuccino uses a variety of  implants, in a full range of shapes and sizes. We’re able to enhance the size and shape of the breasts to the unique needs of our patients. Our September Special is all about cleavage! Let’s talk about breast implants.

Saline & Silicone

We offer both saline and silicone implants, in different shapes, profiles, and textures. The implant may have a round shape, or a teardrop shape. Some of the decision for choosing round or teardrop is based on a patient’s personal preference. The round implant is most commonly used, and it comes in different profiles. Profiles vary by the diameter of the implant base becoming smaller. The breast is projected out further with a smaller diameter, which indicates a higher profile or projection. Most women that have a certain amount of existing breast tissue do very well with the round implant, and it gives a natural appearance.

The teardrop-shaped implant can work well for women that tend to have less natural breast tissue to start with or a breast shape deformity. The profile that is best for the patient is dictated by the existing breast size, the amount of natural breast tissue, the implant size chosen, breast shape, and chest wall shape.

Size

The biggest decision for women tends to be the size of the implant. In addition to the amount of natural breast tissue, size selection also depends on the quality of the breast tissue, and dimensions of the breast. The size of a breast implant is measured in cubic centimeters (cc), and typically varies from 200 ccs to 800 ccs. The cubic centimeters don’t necessarily correlate to a specific cup size, due to the fact that every woman starts with a different amount of natural breast tissue. The most important factor is that our patients choose an implant size that is comfortable, and that creates the type of proportion desired.  We offer New Look Now before and after visualization software free with each consult so women can virtually see their results of breast implants on their body before surgery.

This month only at Guy Cappuccino, MD we’re offering free CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing with your Breast Augmentation purchase. Come in for a private consultation, and we’ll use measurements and an analysis of body shape to help determine which implants will achieve your desired look. Call today to schedule at 301-829-4110.

Look Great Now and Later with Bellafill

June is all about Bellafill at Guy Cappuccino, MD Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. Bellafill Cappuccino-6-17-Promo-Web (1)provides beautiful, natural-looking volume to soften smile lines and acne scars. It is proven to be safe, effective, and long-lasting with minimal to no downtime. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers that are temporary and require repeat touch-ups, Bellafill is a unique FDA-approved collagen based filler that works in two ways. This means less time spent at appointments, and less time under the needle. Let’s talk about the beautiful benefits of Bellafill.

How is Bellafill unique?

Bellafill is unique from other fillers because it works in two ways. Immediate volume takes place as the smooth collagen gel filler lifts depressed skin to the level of the surrounding skin in smile lines and acne scars. Long lasting improvement takes place as the polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres also create a matrix to support your body’s own collagen production. As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen. This support structure from the microspheres gives lasting improvement by restoring your skin as opposed to temporarily filling it. The result is a smoother, more youthful appearance.

How long will it last?

Results are proven to last through 5 years in smile lines, and 1 year in acne scars. At the 5-year mark 83% of patients were still satisfied with their smile lines results. At the 1-year mark 90% of patients were still satisfied with their results for acne scars. Bellafill creates natural-looking, enduring results. Your body naturally metabolizes and absorbs the collagen over time, but the volumizing results of the support matrix from the PMMA microspheres lays the foundation for long-term smoothness.

Bellafill can be used alone or in combination with other treatments. During June we’re offering a free syringe of Bellafill with the purchase of an Infini Face & Neck Series. Contact us to take advantage of this $1,000 Bellafill value, it’s limited to the first 5 patients. Get your own beautiful benefits with Bellafill!
