Upgrade Your Confidence With a Breast Augmentation

Are you tired of looking in the mirror to see an image that does not reflect how you really want to look and feel? For many women, breast size becomes a frustrating, shame-inducing topic that leaves them wishing they were born in a different body. The good news is, you don’t have to live like that anymore!

Breast augmentation has long been one of the most popular plastic surgeries in the world. Women flock to this procedure because they want to feel good about their bodies and love the way they fit into their clothes. Thankfully, breast augmentation isn’t a one-size-fits-all surgery. Patients and their doctors can work together to determine the size and shape of the implant that will help them reach their goals.

So, What Is A Breast Augmentation?

Colloquially referred to as a “boob job,” breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure that takes an hour or two, depending on the specific case. During this procedure, your surgeon makes an incision in one of the three places around the breast, either underneath the breast, in the armpit, or around the nipple. Then, an implant is inserted into the incision behind the breast tissue to add volume and shape to the breast. The incision is then stitched up, and the patient can begin their healing journey. Most patients return to a lighter schedule within one week of surgery and are fully healed within four to six weeks.

Different Implant Types

The two primary types of breast implants are silicone and saline. Silicone implants are filled with silicone gel and feel very similar to the texture of natural breast tissue. For patients who aren’t interested in silicone implants, saline is also very popular. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water, which, if punctured, could safely be absorbed into the patient’s body. A plastic surgeon can help quell any concerns and answer questions about either type of implant.

In addition to the implant material, you will also be given the opportunity to weigh in on its shape and size. Making all these decisions may feel overwhelming at first, but with a detailed conversation about what you want the end result to look and feel like, we can help you make the right choice.

Add A Lift To Your Augmentation

Adding volume to a sagging breast may not be the solution you’re looking for. In fact, the weight of added material may exacerbate it. Many women, especially those in or beyond mid-life, those who have gained and lost significant weight, and women who have carried children, opt for a breast lift in conjunction with their augmentation. A breast lift procedure entails the removal of excess breast tissue and skin and an effort to tighten the skin and underlying muscle tissue to create a lifted youthful appearance.

If you’re tired of wearing push-up bras and turtle necks to disguise the current state of your breasts, we’ve got great news for you. You don’t have to live that way any longer.
