Breast Augmentation in Baltimore, Maryland
Whenever possible, Dr. Kane chooses to make surgical incisions along the bottom edge of the patient’s areolas, where post-surgical scars will be nearly invisible. Other possibilities include under the breast and in the armpit. The Maryland plastic surgeon places the silicone or saline implants under the chest muscle to create a pleasing, natural slope to the chest wall. Once the implants are in place, the incisions are stitched closed with small sutures.
Dr. Kane uses twilight to deep sedation for his Baltimore breast enhancement surgeries. The average procedure takes one to two hours.
After Breast Enhancement
During surgery, Dr. Kane injects medication into the chest muscles to minimize discomfort for 24 hours following breast augmentation. Most patients wake up from sedation feeling pretty good and do well their first night after surgery. For the next few days, any discomfort can be controlled with a combination of prescription and over-the-counter pain relievers. Breast enlargement patients typically experience breast sensitivity, soreness and swelling for several days. Sometimes, temporary changes in nipple sensation also occur. Within a week to ten days, most women feel they can resume many of their normal activities, enjoying a more curvaceous, sexy bust line and a natural, sculpted look.

Breast Augmentation Recovery
When Dr. Dean Kane performs breast enhancement surgery with Silicone or Saline Breast Implants, he generally places the implants under the muscle of the woman’s breast. Dr. Kane also makes his incision within the edge of the brown areola so the scars stay beautifully well hidden and almost imperceivable. By placing the silicone or saline implants under the muscle rather than over the muscle, Dr. Kane needs to make a special pocket so the implant will fit within the woman’s breast. Dr. Kane feels the under the muscle approach give women the best appearance for a breast augmentation because the top of the implant is strategically hidden by the muscle and therefore the top edge is never seen. The breasts have a smooth look to them rather than seeing an actual edge of the implants. But in regard to recovery, the placement under the muscle does cause more discomfort and therefore more recovery time. The muscle where the pocket has been created to accommodate the implant becomes very sore. Dr. Kane believes in giving women medication that relaxes the muscle so women have less pain. He has a set way of providing medication for the women so it minimizes the pain, yet needing less narcotic type or strong medication that can cause upset stomachs, nausea and vomiting. Most women feel much better after 3 nights after surgery. They wake up feeling so much better and often feel they can go to work if it is a sitting type job within 6-7 days of breast augmentation surgery. If women have an active type of job or are mothers needing to lift children then Dr. Kane recommends 2 weeks to be able to go back to an active routine. Lifting should always be kept to less than 10 pounds for at least 2-3 weeks.
