What is Breast Augmentation?
More commonly referred to as a breast enhancement or enlargement, breast augmentation is one of the most frequently requested procedures at our office. Among the most commonly practiced aesthetic procedures in the country, augmentation is done by placing breast implants or by transferring fat from another area.
Dr. Kenneth Sumida uses mostly saline implants, but silicone is also available for approved individuals. Breast augmentations are performed for two main reasons – to increase the fullness of small breast sizes, and to restore volume to breasts that have lost size due to weight loss or pregnancy.
The benefits of receiving a breast augmentation are:
- An increase in the fullness and size of your breasts
- Improvement the shape and balance of your figure
- Increase your confidence and self-esteem
How is a Breast Augmentation Done?
Breast augmentation is done on an outpatient basis and under general anesthesia. Incision areas may be discussed with Dr. Kenneth Sumida during your consultation, but typically small incisions are made either underneath the nipple, under the breast or under the arm to minimize conspicuous scarring.
From there, a pocket is created for the implant, usually underneath the pectoral muscle or behind the breast tissue. Positioning and implant size will depend on you as an individual. The incisions are then closed, and the procedure is complete.
What is the Recovery Like?
Any initial discomfort after a breast augmentation procedure is controlled with oral pain medication. Dr. Kenneth Sumida and our experienced medical team will offer additional pain management options if necessary. A week of rest is typically advised, following by light activity for the next 4 to 6 weeks. No strenuous activities should be undertaken during this time.
Full results may not be apparent for up to 4 months, as the body will need time to heal from the surgery and adjust itself to the implants. Our medical team will be available to you after your procedure to track your progress, healing and any complications you may experience.
At Nuance Cosmetic Surgery, we want you to look confident, feel confident and be confident. Contact us today to get started on your way to the fuller breast size you have always wanted.
