Many women wish to increase the size and/or fullness of their breasts to make them more proportional to the rest of their body. Women of all ages come to our office desiring to enlarge their breasts for a number of reasons. Generally, women that have a genetic pre-disposition toward small breasts tell us that they desire to better fill out their clothes or bathing suits. Women that have lost breast volume after weight loss or breast-feeding typically tell us that they want to regain their breast fullness and/or cleavage. In all these cases, breast augmentation is usually the optimal way to increase your breast size, which can improve the way you look and feel about yourself.
There are many surgical approaches for breast augmentation, which include inconspicuous incisions underneath the breast (just above the crease).
YOUR BREAST ENHANCEMENT CONSULTATION
Newport Beach’s plastic surgeon Dr. Montegut will listen to your concerns and your hopes. He will discuss with you the various surgical options and the different implant types, shapes, and sizes now available. And since the FDA’s recent approval of silicone gel implants, women age 22 and up have a choice between silicone and saline breast implants.
Breast enlargement is done on an outpatient basis in a state-of-the-art Newport Beach facility under general anesthesia. A small incision is made and a silicone or saline implant is inserted. Incisions can alternatively be placed in discreet locations.
Balanced and aesthetic results are achieved by correct placement of implants into the breast in a pocket created by the surgeon either above or below the pectoralis muscle. Implant placement is determined by the shape of the patient and the physician’s best judgment as to how the most pleasing and natural results can be achieved.
You will go home in an elastic bra which helps hold the breasts in the correct position. Initial discomfort is controlled with oral medication, and sutures are usually removed within a week Light activities can be resumed as tolerated and aerobic activities can be started in about 3 weeks. Moving or sliding the implants within the breast pockets during the postoperative period may reduce the frequency of wrinkling.
After your recovery is complete, your only complaint will be that you didn’t have breast enlargement sooner. If you’re like most women, you will feel more self-confident, sexier, and more attractive than ever before.
