What is breast augmentation procedure?
Breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure where an implant is placed behind the breast tissue or under the muscle between the breast and the chest wall to enlarge and reshape the breasts.
Where does the incision go for breast augmentation surgery?
Many incision sites have been used in the past, including those in the armpit, inside the belly button, and around the areola (colored patch of skin around the nipple). Doctors Diane Alexander and Bernadette Wang-Ashraf most commonly place a small, inconspicuous incision in the natural crease just underneath the breast for best result and scar camouflage. This incision is normally well-covered by a bra or bikini top. Our doctors discuss incision placement and surgical planning with you as part of your consultation.
What are my breast implants choices?
Currently in the United States, breast augmentation patients can choose between silicone and saline breast implants. Silicone breast implants are gel-filled prostheses. They are known for producing softer, more natural-looking results. Saline implants, on the other hand, are filled with a salt water solution, which causes no harm to the body in case of an implant rupture. While saline breast implants are the right choice for many patients, however, many do not produce aesthetic results comparable to those of silicone breast implants. One of our plastic surgeons will recommend the best implant for you during your consultation appointment. Our surgeons’ recommendations are generally based on your personal preference, desired look, and tissue availability.
Who is a good candidate for this procedure?
Good candidates for breast augmentation are women who wish to have larger breasts for cosmetic reasons, women whose weight loss has affected the size and shape of their breasts, or women who have lost their breast shape and firmness due to age or pregnancy. Breast augmentation surgery candidates must be in good general health and have reasonable expectations. Each patient’s candidacy is determined on an individual basis during a consultation appointment with one of our surgeons.
In addition to treating Atlanta breast augmentation patients, the surgeons of Artisan Plastic Surgery have also helped many Atlanta breast lift, breast reduction, breast reconstruction, and breast asymmetry patients.
