“M.I.A.M.I.” (Minimal Incision And Minimal Inconvenience)
The M.I.A.M.I. Breast Augmentation is an approach to periareolar submuscular breast enlargement surgery developed by Dr. Hunsaker that predictably allows:
- A rapid return to normal activities of daily living
- Full range of motion of the arms by the next day
- A light anesthetic allowing a comfortable procedure with a rapid recovery and miniscule risk of nausea/vomiting
- A relatively inconspicuous scar
The procedure takes approximately ninety minutes. Our infection rate for breast implants is ZERO (no infections in fourteen years). Our rate of capsular contracture requiring surgical revision is less than 1%. Our deflation (leak) rate over the past seven years is less than 1% (one implant). Published rates for infection run as high as 1-2%, for capsular contracture as high as 30% and for deflation as high as .5-2% per year. In the last two-and-a-half years over 96% of our breast augmentation patients have stopped needing any prescription pain medicine by the end of the third day and nearly 50% stop by the end of the second day. Some use only Tylenol or Motrin for all their post-procedure needs. For most patients this has allowed them to plan their surgery as a “long-weekend” commitment to recovery. While every patient responds differently, and not every patient is a candidate for this approach, this method offers many advantages over more traditional approaches that require prolonged restrictions, recovery and pain.
