Are you unhappy with the size or shape of your breasts? If so, Breast Augmentation surgery may be just what you’re looking for. Breast Augmentation procedures can improve self-image, confidence, and quality of life.
What is a Breast Augmentation?
A Breast Augmentation, also called Mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that alters the shape and volume of the breasts. Candidates may have different sized breasts, or simply be unhappy with their current size. Many patients opt for Breast Augmentations to add volume after pregnancy, breastfeeding, and/or weight loss. For many patients, a Breast Augmentation is the answer to years of feeling self-conscious about the appearance of their breasts.
Dr. Dillon will make a discreet incision under the breast or around the areola, inserting the breast implant below or above the muscle. He will discuss your options with you prior to surgery and customize the procedure to meet your needs.
Complete recovery takes 2-4 weeks. Following surgery, patients are encouraged to sleep on recliners to prevent chest pain. The chest area will be wrapped to help decrease swelling. Patients should expect swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort in the first two weeks after the procedure. In the following weeks, you will need to wear a special bra to support your new breasts while they heal.
Patients can return to work within 1-2 weeks and resume normal physical activity after 4-6 weeks.
