Breast Augmentation

Considering breast augmentation? Breast size can be a big part of self-confidence for many women. If you’re looking to increase your size, breast augmentation could be the answer.

We understand the importance of feeling comfortable in your body. That’s why we offer breast augmentation services in Louisville to help you achieve your desired look.

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 an outpatient procedure, and those who undergo it can safely return home on the same day it is performed.

SALINE OR SILICONE BREAST IMPLANTS?

One of the most significant 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 occurs. 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 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 discuss the desired size and the technique used to insert them.

What to Expect During the Consultation and Procedure?

Your breast augmentation journey in Louisville starts with an in-depth consultation focusing on your health history and desired outcomes. Our dedicated team, led by our plastic surgeons Dr. Banis, Dr. Prescott, and Dr. Sparks will partner with you to plan your procedure. Once you are deemed eligible for the procedure, we will create a personalized surgical plan for you, emphasizing the features you aspire to enhance.

The surgery begins with giving you anesthesia to ensure you’re comfortable and pain-free. We’ll choose the best type of anesthesia—local or general—based on what you prefer and the details of your surgery.

AFTER THE BREAST AUGMENTATION PROCEDURE

After your 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 take about two weeks off work to rest and ensure a fast recovery. During this time, you should also avoid performing strenuous physical activities. Follow-up visits can be scheduled to see if the healing process is progressing.

GOOD CANDIDATES FOR BREAST AUGMENTATION

Breast augmentation is a safe and effective procedure that can help women who desire larger breasts. If the patient is interested in enhancing the shape of their breasts, improving the amount of projection they have, or giving them a perkier appearance, a breast lift may be the better option. Breast augmentation combined with a lift can also be performed for more comprehensive results.

Ideal patients are in good physical health and have realistic expectations. We’ll perform an initial assessment of your body and discuss your medical history to determine if breast augmentation is right for you.
