Abstract/OtherAbstract:
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: After reading this article, the participant should be able to: 1. Cite the key concepts in the process of breast augmentation that optimize outcomes; 2. Cite key components of tissue-based planning for implant selection; 3. Discuss complications and risks of breast augmentation.
SUMMARY: Breast augmentation remains one of the top surgical procedures performed by plastic surgeons. Current literature supports the concept that breast augmentation outcomes are optimized using a concept of "the process of breast augmentation." Breast augmentation is often thought of as a surgical procedure; however, the nonsurgical aspects of the procedure are more important for optimizing outcomes and minimizing reoperation and complications. The process of breast augmentation includes patient education, tissue-based preoperative planning, refined surgical technique, and defined postoperative management. This CME article reviews and discusses the current relevant topics and issues surrounding breast implants. There are also supporting videos to enhance the reader's experience. CME questions are present at the end for a self-assessment.
