Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure to increase breast size and enhance breast shape, typically through the placement of silicone or saline implants.
Patients interested in breast enhancement are looking to improve the volume of their breasts, improve cleavage or correct asymmetries in their breasts to make them look more equal. Patients can have this procedure before or after pregnancies.
There are different types of breast implants available, which include silicone and saline options. During your consultation, Dr. Kottwitz will help guide you regarding which type of implant is best for your desired results.
Who Is An Ideal Candidate For Breast Augmentation?
Several factors help determine the feasibility of breast augmentation for prospective patients. Generally, the best candidates are in good physical health and have had a normal mammogram. During your consultation, Dr. Kottwitz will discuss what to expect and help set realistic expectations.
How Is Breast Augmentation Performed?
A small incision is made at the base of the breast or at the base of the nipple areolar complex. The implant can be placed below or above the muscle depending on how much breast tissue is already present.
How Much Time Will I Need To Recover After Breast Augmentation?
Patients go home the same day. Most patients recover very quickly and can return to work a few days to one week after the procedure. A sports bra without underwire is worn 24 hours a day for 4-6 weeks to help support the implant position. Low impact exercise can be restarted at 3-4 weeks.
