Breast Augmentation in Sarasota & Bradenton
Breast augmentation, also known as breast enlargement or breast enhancement, enhances the size and shape of the breast by inserting implants. The technique can also help restore a loss of breast volume from previous breast-feeding or weight loss. A breast uplift, or mastopexy, can be done in conjunction with a breast augmentation, if necessary.
Breast augmentation with implants, medically referred to as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure using either saline or silicone implants to add fullness to the breasts, giving them a size more proportionate to your body frame. Patients often consider breast augmentation for a number of different reasons, including:
Breast implants come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and types. Our plastic surgeons at The Plastic Surgery Center will discuss your implant options, including the benefits and differences of saline and silicone breast implants, with you at your initial consultation. We will be happy to address any questions or concerns you may have.
Breast augmentation (enlargement) surgery typically begins with an incision on the underside of the breast, in the armpit, or around the areola (the dark-pigmented region surrounding the nipple). The implants will be placed either behind the chest muscle or directly beneath the breast tissue, depending on the placement that you and our plastic surgeon have decided upon before the procedure. Incisions are made as carefully and discreetly as possible to minimize any visible scarring. The entire procedure typically takes about two hours or less and is usually performed under general anesthesia. Breast augmentation can be performed on an out-patient basis.
Some discomfort and pain can be expected after breast augmentation surgery; however, this can controlled with medication. Patients can also expect some degree of swelling, bruising, and a sensation of numbness to affect the breasts and nipples during the first few weeks after the procedure. Most patients are able to resume normal daily activities within the week following surgery. Breast augmentation patients should continue to have mammograms after surgery. A special mammogram will be necessary to see around the implants for the most accurate results possible.
Breast augmentation with implants can help you attain your aesthetic enhancement goals and give you fuller breasts and beautiful contours. Please contact The Plastic Surgery Center to schedule a consultation, and we will go over all aspects of the procedure with you and answer your questions.
