You have always had small breasts. Even with push-up or padded bras, you may be unable to achieve the appearance that you desire. You may be able to enhance your bust by undergoing a simple breast augmentation procedure performed by Dr. Joseph Banis in Louisville, KY. If you are unhappy with the size of your breasts and you’d like to see more fullness, it may be time to seriously consider breast augmentation.

What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical cosmetic procedure that involves the skillful insertion of implants. It is typically an outpatient procedure that is performed with general anesthesia. The surgery itself is designed to increase and change the shape and appearance of your breasts. It is also known as a boob job. Despite its ability to improve the lift and shape of your breasts, it cannot resolve issues from severe drooping. For this issue, you may need to undergo a breast lift, which is a different type of cosmetic surgery.

Why is Breast Augmentation Performed?

Patients who undergo breast augmentation surgery in Louisville often do so to address a number of issues related to the way that their breasts look and feel. For example, this surgery can be helpful in cases of:

  • Asymmetry
  • Projection or lack of fullness
  • Low self-confidence or self-image due to small breasts
  • Poor balance between hip and breast contours

As mentioned, the surgery is usually done under general anesthesia. During the time that you are asleep, our board-certified surgeon will place the implants in their preselected locations. Once you are cleared to go home, you can begin the healing process.

Breast Augmentation Recovery

Contrary to popular belief, the recovery is minimal. In fact, we refer to it as a “weekend” recovery. With that being said, it is important to take it as easy as possible during this time. It is also important to follow our team’s instructions regarding healing in order to encourage optimal results. Once you have fully healed, you can enjoy the results of your procedure for years to come.
