For many women, breast size is a vital part of feeling comfortable in their bodies and often times dictates how confident they feel when going about their daily lives. Many women, however, aren’t born with the breasts they want and desire an improvement in their size. In such cases, breast augmentation is a useful solution that can provide women with the breasts of their dreams. At Dr. Banis Plastic Surgery, we understand how troubling it can be to live in a body that you’re unhappy with and proudly provide breast augmentation services to help women obtain the breasts they want.
What is Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that’s designed to improve the shape and size of a woman’s breasts. This invasive cosmetic procedure makes use of silicone or saline breast implants to provide an enhancement in size. This technique is performed as an outpatient procedure and those who undergo it can safely return home the same day it is performed.
Saline or Silicone Breast Implants?
One of the biggest decisions you will make regarding the breast augmentation procedure is the type of implant that you’ll use. You can choose between saline or silicone breast implants, but before you do, it is important that you understand the subtle difference between each.
Saline breast implants are filled with a saltwater solution. Because of this, it will incur fewer risks if a rupture were to occur. The implants are inserted into the pocket of the breasts empty and will then be filled to reach the appropriate size.
Silicone implants are filled with a silicone gel. They provide a more natural appearance but can be more costly than saline implants. While the implants are built to prevent issues like rupturing, if one does occur, it could cause an adverse reaction in the body. Once the desired implants are chosen, we will then discuss the desired size and the technique used to insert the implants.
After the Breast Augmentation Procedure
After the breast augmentation surgery is completed, you can expect to experience some swelling, bruising, and general discomfort in the treatment area. Fortunately, this is temporary and will subside quickly. In cases where the discomfort becomes too much to handle, we will provide you with medication to help you feel more comfortable during the recovery process. You can expect to have to take about two weeks off work to rest and ensure a fast recovery. During this time you should also avoid performing strenuous physical activities.
