Breast Augmentations: What You Need to Know
Do you lack confidence due to uneven breast sizes? Are you self conscious of the natural size of your breasts? Has your breast mass changed from extreme weight loss and/or pregnancy? All of these questions can be addressed with a breast augmentation procedure, but first let’s take a look at what you might need to know.
No two women are alike, and neither are their bodies or desires. Our patients elect to undergo breast augmentation for many different medical and aesthetic reasons. And did you know this procedure is extremely common? In fact, breast augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States, and one of our most popular services here at Suffolk Plastic Surgeons.
So you are considering a breast augmentation and now you might be wondering, what exactly can a breast augmentation give me? The breast augmentation procedure can give women with small or unevenly sized breasts a fuller, firmer, better-proportioned look through the placement of saline or silicone implants in the breast. This procedure is done to better balance breast size, compensate for reduced breast mass after pregnancy, or to correct a congenital breast defect. Ultimately, and under our doctors' expert care, patients enjoy great-looking, natural-feeling breasts that are one or more cup sizes larger after the operation.
How does the procedure typically go? Pre-procedure we will help you decide which kind of implant, saline or silicone, is right for you. Both implant types are very safe, and each offers its own advantages. The breast augmentation procedure typically lasts one to two hours. Incisions are made in inconspicuous places on the breast. The breast is first lifted to create a pocket, and then the implant is inserted. Many patients are able to return to work within the week.
