Minimally Invasive Surgical Technique for Breast Augmentation

Women considering a breast augmentation should have several of their concerns put to ease by knowing Dr. Ravi Somayazula uses state-of-the-art technology in performing all of his procedures. The recovery goes much smoother due to his gentle and precise approach, as well as making the smallest incisions possible (leaving a smaller scar).

Keller Funnel® Implant Insertion

One of his many unique techniques is the use of the Keller Funnel with silicone breast implant placement. Not all plastic surgeons have chosen to implement this technology into their practice. The benefits of using this device include:

  • Allowing the placement of a large implant under the breast while making a much smaller incision than normally needed. This ultimate benefit is a significantly smaller scar when compared to surgeons who does not use the Keller Funnel.
  • Minimizing infection rates and capsular contracture (internal scar) formation by protecting the integrity of the implant by keeping it clean and not allowing the implant to touch the skin.
  • Placement of the implant with minimal stress and trauma to the surrounding skin, leading to less wound healing complications and pain.

Minimal Breast Scarring

Dr. Ravi Somayazula will also measure out the exact position of the scar based on your specific breast anatomy and size of implants so that the final scar is well hidden at your natural breast fold. By taking extra time in the operative room, he performs precise electrocautery of blood vessels when making the breast pockets for the implants. Other surgeons may choose to perform simple blunt bloody dissection, which is a messier technique and leads to increased bruising, bleeding, and post-operative pain.

Improved Comfort and Rapid Healing with Exparel®

To provide additional comfort, Dr. Ravi Somayazula injects Exparel (a local anesthetic) into the breasts while performing your breast augmentation. This decreases the need for pain medications and improves overall healing time. Many patients have been able to return to work within 2-3 days, but keep in mind that everyone heals differently.
