Benefits of Breast Augmentation Surgery
Breast augmentation surgery can help you attain a breast size that is more proportionate to your body frame, accentuating the size and contour of your breasts. The goal of breast augmentation surgery should not just be enlarging the breasts, but improving proportions so that the breasts enhance the overall appearance of your silhouette.
In some cases, woman with drooping or sagging breasts may include a breast lift in addition to getting breast implants.
Before your procedure, you’ll schedule a consultation at Sieveking Plastic Surgery. Breast implants are available in a number of sizes, shapes, and types. Dr. Sieveking or Dr. Claiborne will go over all of your options at your initial consultation in Nashville, TN, and show you a variety of breast implants. Together, you and the doctor will talk about the advantages and disadvantages of all types of implants and come up with the best options for you.
The Breast Augmentation Procedure
Breast augmentation surgery can be performed in a number of ways, depending on your individual needs and goals. An incision can be made in the armpit, the crease where the breast meets the chest, or in the areolar area (the dark-pigmented region that surrounds the nipple). Once the incision has been created, the doctor will place the implants either directly behind the breast tissue or behind the chest muscle. The exact placement of the implants will also be discussed at your consultation to determine what is best for your goals. Our doctors will work diligently to ensure that any residual scarring is as minimally visible as possible.
Some bruising and swelling in the breasts will be present after breast augmentation surgery. A compression bra worn for a few weeks after the procedure should facilitate the healing process. You should be able to resume normal daily routines within one week; however, we will advise you to avoid strenuous exercise or heavy lifting for several weeks after surgery.
