Breast Augmentation

breast implants atlanta

Today, breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in Atlanta and throughout the United States. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgery, just under three hundred thousand breast augmentation surgeries took place in 2015 alone.

Breast augmentation improves breast size, shape and restores the fullness of breasts, yet has a reasonable recovery time to achieve the desired result. Our surgeons take pride in creating a specialized surgical plan for each patient, helping them to achieve the vision of a more balanced figure.

What is breast augmentation?

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. It’s very common for women to experience a difference in breast tissue and proportion to their breasts naturally. 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 provides a great increase in self-confidence as well; the more confident you feel, the more it shows.

There are some options for breast augmentation surgery and at Advanced Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center we will talk through all available options. During your consultation, the doctor will give you their recommendations regarding incision location, implant type, and whether to place the implant above (subglandular) or below the chest muscle (submuscular). This is also the time to establish good communication with your surgeon, so he can tailor a surgical approach to meet your expectations.

Deciding on Implant Type

We have a tremendous amount of experience with both saline-filled and silicone gel-filled implants. Silicone implants are generally preferred for their more natural feel though saline implants are appropriate for certain patients. Both types of implants, saline, and silicone filled, are relative in size, texture and shape. During your consultation, we will take the appropriate measurements to maintain the most natural proportions.

Types of Breast Augmentation Incisions

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 in the art of incision placement, such as the periareolar (around the perimeter of the areola) incision and inframammary (under the breast) incision.

Depending on your lifestyle, such as the type of clothing you wear and how much skin you tend to expose, your physician will recommend one incision type over others. We want your incision to remain concealed and as unnoticeable as possible. After all, at Advanced Aesthetics Plastic Surgery Center, we provide the most natural looking breast augmentations possible for our patients, and no one likes to kiss and tell.

Implants Don’t Lift

Occasionally, a patient with drooping (ptosis) of the breasts will require a mastopexy (or breast lift) with their implants. Implants do not provide lift, but will simply reshape and bring fullness to the breasts; a breast lift can be combined with breast augmentation at the same time. 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 (tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift, liposuction, and body sculpting) to restore the postpartum figure to a more youthful pre-baby shape. At Advanced Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center, we love to help our patients gain added confidence, feel and look great!

Breast Augmentation Recovery & Results

Your surgery will be an outpatient procedure performed in Fayetteville at our state licensed and AAAASF certified surgery center. Most often, breast augmentation is performed under IV sedation, but occasionally patients may require general anesthesia. Either way, you will be comfortable throughout the procedure, and you should be in and out in a couple of hours.

For the first 3–4 days after surgery, all heavy lifting and exercise are prohibited. You can return to work and normal daily activity within a few days, but should maintain light activity for the first two to three weeks. Depending on your level of swelling and the type of implants you’ve chosen, results can take a longer period to become fully visible. Your Advanced Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center surgeon will go over all of your detail and custom recovery options with you.

Should you need any medication for slight discomfort during this short recovery period, that will be prescribed after surgery. You may also be fitted for a custom compression support bra to minimize movement in breasts during recovery.
