Breast Augmentation Atlanta | Breast Enlargement Fayetteville

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in Atlanta and the United States. It improves breast size and shape, yet has a very reasonable recovery time. Our surgeons take pride in creating a specialized surgical plan for each patient, helping every woman achieve the goal of a more balanced figure.

What is Breast Augmentation?

If you’d like to fill out your swimsuit a little more, or are tired of worrying about clothes that drape improperly because of uneven breast sizes, breast augmentation can help. Breast augmentation is a procedure that enlarges the breasts using implants, and it can also balance the symmetry of the breasts if they are a different size or proportion. After the surgery, you will be proud of your new figure. The difference will be noticeable, especially when wearing bathing suits and lingerie. Breast augmentation generally provides a great increase in self-confidence as well.

There are a number of options for breast augmentation surgery. At your consultation, the doctor will give you his recommendations regarding incision location, implant type, and whether to place the implant above or below the chest muscle. This is also the time to establish good communication with your surgeon, so he can tailor a surgical approach to meet your expectations.

Occasionally, a patient with a droop (or ptosis) will require a mastopexy (or breast lift) with her implants. Our doctors will discuss this option with you if necessary. Breast augmentation and breast lift can also be part of a mommy makeover, a combination of procedures to restore the pre-pregnancy body.

Implant Options

We have a tremendous amount of experience with both saline-filled and silicone gel implants. Silicone implants are generally preferred for their more natural feel, though saline implants are appropriate for certain patients.

We use different styles of implants—such as High Profile, Medium Plus Profile, and Medium Profile—to give you the greatest range of choices for the look you desire. We’re also experienced with the different incision locations, such as periareolar (under the areola), inframammary (under the breast), and transaxillary (in the armpit).
