Breast Augmentation & Enhancement
What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a procedure designed to enhance the size and shape of your breasts. Patients desiring breast implants typically want to have larger breasts with improved cleavage and improved shape. Breast augmentation can also restore breast size when pregnancy and/or weight loss have removed the fullness from the upper portion of their breasts.
What Happens During Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation uses either saline or silicone implants to increase breast size. Both implant types have an outer silicone shell. The difference is what is inside, either saline (salt water) or silicone gel. Placement of the implants depends upon your tissue thickness and your preference, either under the muscle (submuscular) or under the breast tissue (subglandular).
During your initial consultation, your doctor will discuss both the implant material and placement of the implant with you. Specific measurements of all the dimensions of your breast will be done in order to determine the best implant fit for you. We encourage you to bring images of breasts that are similar to the results you desire.
What May I Expect With Breast Augmentation Surgery?
Breast augmentation is performed under general anesthesia. You will go home the same day as your procedure. Recovery times may vary, but, on average, most patients are back to work within a few days.
