Breast augmentation or breast mammaplasty involves using breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of the breasts, create a more rounded breast shape, and improve symmetry.
Breast implants are made with silicone or saline. Each type of breast implant offers different shapes, sizes, and textures. Fat transfer is an option for breast augmentation without implants. Using liposuction, we take fat from other areas of the body to inject into the breasts. The best style and size to achieve the look you want depends on your lifestyle, body contours, preferences for feel and shape, and how much breast tissue you already have.
What are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation?
Besides increasing the fullness and projection of your breasts, breast augmentation surgery can improve your breast shape and bring them into better proportion to your hips. This kind of breast enhancement can make a big difference, even with a slight increase in breast size. Many women find it helps them feel more confident and improves their self-esteem.
A good candidate for breast augmentation in Lowell has fully developed breasts, is in good physical health, and is not pregnant or breastfeeding. The FDA sets minimum age requirements for breast implants, depending on the type you choose. For example, you must be 18 for saline breast implants and 22 for silicone breast implants. Most importantly, you must have realistic expectations for what breast augmentation can and cannot accomplish.
Breast augmentation is typically an outpatient procedure done under general anesthesia. Dr. Lee will use different incision and insertion techniques depending on your specific conditions and desired results. Before the procedure, he will draw precision markings on your body to help guide the sculpting process and ensure symmetry. Breast implants are inserted either behind the glandular tissue or behind the muscle, depending on which is best for your skin and current breast anatomy. Dr. Lee will close incisions with sutures once the implants are in or the fat transfer is complete. He may place drains to allow fluids to escape as you heal.
After your breast augmentation surgery, you will be placed in a support bra to help minimize bruising and swelling. We will closely monitor you for an hour or two before releasing you to go home with detailed instructions for recovery, including when you can resume normal activities.
You will need someone to drive you home and stay with you for the first 24 hours after surgery. It can take a few days to recover fully after breast augmentation surgery. Most patients can manage any pain and discomfort with over-the-counter medications such as Tylenol and ibuprofen.
You will be encouraged to walk within a few days of your surgery to help your recovery. Still, you will need to avoid strenuous activities for at least four weeks. Your return to work depends on the type of work that you do.
The results of your augmentation can be seen immediately and continue to improve as the swelling subsides and your body fully heals. Breast augmentation results can last as long as 20 years, depending on the style of implant and lifestyle.
