Announcement: Free HRUS Scan for Silicone Breast Implant Ruptures

Torso of Woman Covering Left BreastSilicone breast implants do not empty when they rupture. Instead, they leak slowly, gradually changing shape and size, and ultimately impacting symmetry and form. The FDA recommends frequent MRI scanning –even as often as yearly – to ensure continued implant integrity.

MRI is the “gold standard” for imaging silicone breast implants to determine if they have ruptured. This type of imaging is, however, expensive and not reliably covered by insurance.

HRUS, high-resolution ultrasound, uses soundwaves to create detailed soft-tissue images without exposing the patient to radiation. Typically used for fetal imaging, HRUS has shown excellent accuracy at detecting silicone implant rupture.

Dr. Fiala is offering free HRUS scans for women with silicone breast implants placed between 2000 and 2015. This offer is available only for the first 150 women to take advantage. Call today to secure your spot.

Your scan and subsequent visit with our board-certified plastic surgeon will be free of both cost and obligation. If you could benefit from breast implant revision, we will provide you with information about your options during this free consultation.

Young woman in pretty panties on blue backgroundFollowing abdominoplasty, there will be some limitations to physical activity. This allows your body to recover appropriately and helps reduce the risk of unwanted consequences such as poor incision healing, infection, and discomfort.

By and large, normal activities can be resumed within a few weeks of tummy tuck surgery. Some things, like more progressive forms of exercise, may need to be avoided for up to eight weeks. During your follow-up visits, Dr. Fiala can address any questions you have about recovery and provide you with individualized guidance to help ensure you are only adding those activities that are safe at each stage of recovery.

Follow-up visits are included in the cost of tummy tuck surgery at Fiala Aesthetics. These visits give us an opportunity to carefully evaluate your level of recovery at each stage and to make personalized recommendations and modifications that help ensure you experience the most rewarding recovery possible.

Call us at 407-339-3222 to schedule your consultation and learn more.

Driving Restrictions After Abdominoplasty

Most patients are able to drive short distances within two weeks of abdominoplasty. This can, of course, vary from patient to patient, making it important that you only resume specific activities when given the go-ahead by Dr. Fiala. Taking up activities like driving may need to be delayed longer if your surgery was more involved or if multiple procedures were performed, and long-distance driving may need to be avoided for six weeks or longer.  All of this will be discussed in greater detail during your time in our care.

During tummy tuck recovery, limitations on more advanced or demanding activities are necessary for proper recovery. However, mild exercise is both encouraged and important for successful healing. As soon as 24 hours after your procedure you can begin to take short walks, gradually increasing their length with each day. Walking helps improve the body’s healing response and can help reduce swelling, discomfort, and issues brought about by inactivity such as constipation. It can also provide a foundation for a healthy lifestyle.

As with mild exercise, eating and drinking appropriately will help with the healing response. Keeping hydrated and choosing foods that are healthful to the body can help improve the recovery experience. Processed foods, foods and drinks high in sugar, and snack foods can activate an inflammation response that works to delay and interfere with incision healing.

Before your procedure, Dr. Fiala will cover pre and postoperative care instructions – including medications, supplements, and habits that will need to be put on hold – to help ensure the most pleasant recovery period. During your follow-up visits, this advice can be restated, expanded on, or modified to meet your specific needs.

Please call Fiala Aesthetics at 407-339-3222 to schedule a consultation at our Altamonte Springs office. We welcome patients from all metro Orlando areas including Lake Mary, Maitland, Winter Park, and Eatonville.

Breast augmentation complications are uncommon, but can be reduced by adopting scientifically-proven “best practices”.  By staying “ahead of the curve” on developments in this field, Dr. Fiala offers a breast augmentation procedure that incorporates these updates, for the patient’s benefit – with a quicker recovery and low rate of complications.

Types of Breast Implants

Silicone implants on hand and natural brestWith patient safety in mind, Dr. Fiala has chosen to only offer smooth breast implants. There is preliminary evidence suggesting this type of breast implant may dramatically reduce the risk of ALCL, a rare type of lymphoma that has recently been linked to breast augmentation with textured-surface implants.

While all of the breast implants available through our office are smooth, we offer a comprehensive range of silicone and saline breast implants in different sizes and shapes, using FDA-approved manufacturers. Depending on your specific needs and desires, Dr. Fiala may recommend options including:

  • Standard saline and structured saline implants
  • Silicone and cohesive silicone (“gummy bear”) implants

These implants are precisely shaped to produce natural-looking and highly complementary results and give patients a wide degree of choice to obtain their desired post-operative size and appearance.

Breast Augmentation Implant Incision and Placement Options

Although there are three common breast augmentation incision options, they are not created equal.

  • Periareolar – around the nipple
  • Inframammary – underneath the breast crease
  • Axillary – in the armpit

Of these options, Dr. Fiala prefers the inframammary incision for several reasons.  Multiple studies have shown that this breast augmentation incision has a lower overall risk of postoperative complications, including capsular contracture, a painful hardening of scar tissue around a breast implant, infection, interference with breastfeeding, and sensory changes.

Dual Plane Breast Implant Placement

Dr. Fiala has found that the dual plane method of breast implant placement often offers the most reliable and pleasing results for the average patient.  With this placement option, the implant is mostly covered by muscle, except in the lower, outer portion of the breast, where the implant is subglandular, since the pectoral muscle doesn’t typically extend to that area.

Proven benefits offered by this breast augmentation technique include:

  • lower risk of capsular contracture, compared to subglandular placement
  • good visibility for post-operative mammograms
  • natural looking appearance
  • better implant coverage and less rippling for slender patients
  • less distortion of the breast when the patient is actively flexing, compared to traditional submuscular placement.

Keller Funnel/No-Touch Technique

Breast Augmentation DressingDr. Fiala uses the Keller funnel and “no-touch” techniques for the placement of breast implants to reduce risks of both capsular contracture and infection. The funnels and implant pockets are irrigated with a betadine-containing solution to further reduce these risks. Fiala Aesthetics was one of the first practices in the Orlando area to adopt the use of the Keller funnel for every single implant, whether saline or silicone.

Dr. Fiala utilizes multi-modality anesthesia techniques to reduce pain and nausea during and after your procedure. He now offers PECS I and PECS II ultrasound-guided nerve blocks as well, which allow our patients to wake up with significantly less discomfort than standard techniques.

Fiala Aesthetics was one of the first plastic surgery practices in Florida to offer a rapid recovery program for dual plane breast implant placement. With this method, restrictive dressings are replaced with a comfortable and supportive bra, and prescription opioids are replaced with anti-inflammatory medications and muscle relaxants.

Many women find they are able to resume most normal activities within just a few days with this strategy, though more demanding exercises may need to be avoided for one month. Dr. Fiala will help you determine when it is safe to resume different activities during your follow-up visits.

Breast augmentation is our number one procedure. But while Dr. Fiala performs 200-300 breast augmentation surgeries every year, his dedication to each individual patient never waivers. At Fiala Aesthetics, your needs and desires are always taken into account and are considered just as important as your safety and comfort. All of this leads to happy patients who are able to enjoy personalized results from a plastic surgeon who truly cares about their long-term happiness.

With the temperatures heating up outside, there’s no better time to try the coolest body-contouring treatment around.  Freeze the fat away for good this summer with CoolSculpting at Fiala Aesthetics.  With quick, easy sessions and little to no downtime, you’ll be looking your best this season and beyond.

 

The Non-Invasive Fat-Reducer

Something we hear from our clients about CoolSculpting is how much they love the fact that they can erase those pockets of stubborn fat without having to undergo surgery to do so.  With CoolSculpting’s innovative cryolipolysis technology, there are no needles, no anesthesia, no incisions, and no residual scarring.  Instead, a device is placed over the skin, and the cooling energy is delivered through the dermis.  Since fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than the overlying skin, CoolSculpting can be performed safely and effectively for contouring your shape without surgery.  You can get back to your busy life without the long recovery associated with surgery.

 

CoolSculpting Is a Popular Way to Slim Down

It comes as no surprise to us at Fiala Aesthetics that non-invasive fat-reducing techniques like CoolSculpting have continued to rise in popularity over the last several years—and it’s not just our happy clients who are doing the talking either.  According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, this type of body-contouring approach is now performed 30 percent more than traditional liposuction.   In 2017 alone, over 356,000 non-invasive fat-removal treatments were conducted in the United States, up seven percent over the previous year.

 

CoolSculpting Can Address Many Troublesome Areas

Here at Fiala Aesthetics, we’ve been providing patients with CoolSculpting for over five years. That makes us one of the most experienced and qualified providers in the Orlando area. We can target troublesome pockets of unwanted fatty tissue all over the body, including the:

  • Abdomen
  • “Love handles” (flanks)
  • Back
  • Underneath the buttocks
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Double chin

 

CoolSculpting is best for those patients who are already fairly close to their weight goals, but who have some problem spots that aren’t responding to diet and exercise efforts.  This treatment is typically only an option for individuals who have a body mass index (BMI) under 30.  Keep in mind that CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment; it’s only appropriate for body-contouring.

 

The Latest CoolSculpting Treatment Applicators

We have the latest generation of CoolSculpting applicators, allowing  for much shorter treatment times than most standard operations of the device. In many cases, sessions take just about 35 minutes to complete, shortening CoolSculpting procedure time by nearly 50 percent. And while most of our patients already consider CoolSculpting to be very tolerable experience, the newest applicators also provide a significant increase in comfort throughout the treatment.

We Offer DualSculpting

We are happy to offer DualSculpting with our two CoolSculpting machines. That means you can see twice as much progress with each and every CoolSculpting treatment. Target bulging love handles and baggy arms during the same procedure, or you can reduce a double chin while tightening up your thighs. With countless combinations to choose from and the most-current applicators, slimming down with CoolSculpting at Fiala Aesthetics has never been better.

 

Alternatives to CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is a safe and effective body-shaping treatment that can provide efficient results without the need for surgery. But if it turns out that you’d get a better result with a different method of contouring, we can help with that too.  We have the knowledge and expertise to know when to recommend a particular technique to give you the greatest benefit.  For some patients, liposuction or a tummy tuck may be a better fit to sculpt and mold their trouble spots.

The procedure does not involve an extensive recovery period or significant risk of complications which makes it particularly popular with working professionals and busy moms.

Furthermore, CoolSculpting is more cost-effective in comparison to a cosmetic surgery procedure such as liposuction. The surgeon will discuss various aspects of the CoolSculpting treatment during the initial appointment, including its estimated costs.

Fiala Aesthetics Plastic Surgery, led by reliable and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala, provides CoolSculpting to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding locations in the sensational Sunshine State.

Price Tag Comparison with Surgery

Surgical procedures for the reduction of fat, such as liposuction, are usually more expensive in comparison to CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure. Therefore, it does not involve expenses for general anesthesia or IV sedation which are often necessary in fat reduction surgery.

Cosmetic surgery can be intricate and significantly invasive, which may require meticulous pre-op preparation and post-operative care and monitoring. Such aspects will add considerably to the procedural costs. Fortunately, CoolSculpting commonly does not involve most of these costs. A single CoolSculpting session takes around 30 to 60 minutes and can be administered as an in-office treatment.

Unlike CoolSculpting, a plastic surgeon may perform the fat reduction surgery at a surgical center or a hospital which will further increase the costs of surgery.

Factors Affecting CoolSculpting Costs

The dollar amount of CoolSculpting may vary between two practices and even between two patients at the same practice due to a variety of factors.

Practice Location

Cosmetic procedure costs are commonly more in prime urban centers in comparison to smaller towns in the interiors. Various attributes such as the average living costs in the area, real estate costs, and local taxes affect the price tag of goods and services, including the dollar amount of cosmetic procedures, in a region.

Extent of Treatment

CoolSculpting costs can vary between two patients depending on the scale of the treatment that the patient requires in a specific area of the body.

The price to treat more extensive areas of the body such as the thighs, abdomen, buttocks, or back may be much higher than the costs involving the treatment of smaller areas such as the chin, knees, cheeks, or ankles. The number of treatment sittings that a patient needs also impacts the overall procedure dollar amount.

Financial Considerations

CoolSculpting differs between patients. In the treatment of many areas involving multiple sittings, the total price tag of the treatment will be calculated depending on the number of sites involved and the number of CoolSculpting sessions that a patient requires.

A majority of patients will be able to get finance for the procedure through professional medical care companies. They can also consider other financing options such as loans from friends and family, bank loans, and credit cards. If someone owes someone a favor, this could be the necessary time to ask for that favor. There are countless ways to obtain money in this country morally and legally.
