Surgeons Seeing Great Results with Subfascial Breast Augmentation in Phoenix, Arizona

The plastic surgeons at Advanced Aesthetic Associates are using a newer method of implant placement to create natural results that their patients love.

Phoenix, AZ (June 2010) – As the field of plastic surgery advances, new techniques to ensure better results with less discomfort are constantly being developed. In the area of breast augmentation, one of these newer developments is subfascial placement of breast implants. The four plastic surgeons at Advanced Aesthetic Associates offer this type of placement as an option for women seeking breast augmentation in Phoenix, Arizona.

"Subfascial breast augmentation can achieve superior results for many of our breast augmentation patients," says board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Remus Repta of Advanced Aesthetic Associates. "The results tend to look and feel more natural and there is the added benefit that patients seem to experience much less discomfort after surgery. We still offer submuscular and subglandular placement options as well. Since each placement location has different benefits and drawbacks, we develop a unique treatment plan for each of the patients at our plastic surgery practice in Phoenix and help them choose the option that will give them the best result possible."

In addition to subfascial breast augmentation, there are two other options for implant placement: under the pectoral muscle (submuscular placement) and directly behind the breast tissue (subglandular placement). Subfascial breast augmentation places the under the connective tissue covering the pectoral muscle. While the subfascial technique may require a higher level of surgical skill than other placement options, the surgeons at Advanced Aesthetic Associates have found that it combines the benefits of both submuscular and subglandular placement, and they have the skill to perform it successfully.

"When we discuss the benefits of subfascial placement, we're talking about the factors that really matter to patients," explains board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Pablo Prichard of Advanced Aesthetic Associates. "First, our evidence suggests that it has all the benefits of sub-muscular placement in terms of prevention of capsular contraction and maintaining implant position. However, since the implant is in front of the muscle, there's no athletic restriction after the procedure and there is no breast animation (breast moving) with contraction of the chest muscle. Recovery time is quicker and more comfortable. And, what's very important for any woman considering breast augmentation, the result is natural-looking."

The surgeons at Advanced Aesthetic Associates are committed to bringing their patients advanced, leading edge techniques for enhancement of face, body, breasts and skin. In addition to subfascial breast enlargement in Phoenix, some of these exciting new procedures include removal of auxiliary sweat glands and liposuction using only local anesthesia. The practice also offers the latest technology and medical devices to achieve their patients' goals, such as IPL Photofacial, Fraxel®, and Sculptra® Aesthetic.

"We're a progressive practice," explains Dr. Lewis Albert Andres of Advanced Aesthetic Associates. "With three surgeons from diverse backgrounds, each of us with substantial experience and skill, we are able to find creative solutions to meet our patients' needs. Although we make beautiful results and safe methods two of our top priorities, we place equal emphasis on developing close relationships with our patients. We foster an environment of open communication, empathy, and individual attention, so our patients are comfortable throughout every step of the process."
