One of the most common cosmetic enhancement procedures is breast augmentation. Breast enlargement at our office is a collaborative process. Dr. Paul LoVerme wants to work with you to produce the safest, most aesthetically pleasing results possible.
The Breast Augmentation Process
In preparation for your breast augmentation procedure, you will view a customized computer presentation displaying the results you may be able to achieve, as well as many before and after photos of breast augmentation patients of our practice. During this consultation, all of your questions about breast enlargement will be answered; including which implant type, shape, and size will work best for you, as well as the implant position and incision method that will best help you achieve your cosmetic goals. After a comprehensive physical exam, a customized breast augmentation plan will be developed for you. Remember that the success of your procedure is dependent on the expertise of the surgeon that you select and the time that surgeon spends preparing for your breast augmentation surgery.
Types of Breast Implants
Breast enlargement involves a variety of options concerning the type of breast implant to use in the surgery. Together, you and Dr. LoVerme will decide which implant is right for you during your consultation.
Placement of Breast Implants
Breast implants can be placed either over or under the chest muscle. Dr. LoVerme will discuss which option will be better for your particular situation. He will also go over the best incision location and incision type in order to minimize the appearance of post-operative scars.
Recovery after Breast Enlargement
Breast augmentation surgery usually takes about one to two hours and is performed on an outpatient basis. Breast augmentation surgery will require general anesthesia or local anesthesia and sedation. Your recovery after breast augmentation surgery may include temporary soreness and breast sensitivity and discomfort, which can be managed with medication. Full recovery and resumption of your exercise routine can take up to six weeks, though most of the breast enlargement patients who have come to our office usually tell us that they are back to normal in 2 – 7 days. Rarely do our patients take more than 1 week off from work unless it is a strenuous job requiring heavy lifting – many are back to office type work in 3 -5 days.
