The Most Common Questions About Breast Augmentation in Nashville Tennessee

Did you know that breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in Nashville?

In the United states, more than 365,000 women had breast implants in 2021 done by board certified plastic surgeons.

Before any cosmetic surgery, you want to know exactly what to expect. So we are going to guide you through the entire process and recovery, just like we do with all of our plastic surgery patients in Nashville, so you know what you can anticipate before, during, and after breast augmentation. 

Breast augmentation, also known as breast implants or even a boob job, is a surgery that involves the use of soft implants to enhance the appearance and to increase the fullness of your breasts. The procedure itself is generally less than one hour, so you’ll be in our surgery center in Brentwood Tennessee for about two hours for your breast implant surgery.

1. What is the cost for breast augmentation? 

Everyone who wants breast implant surgery at our Nashville breast implant surgery center wonders how much it costs.

Breast implant surgery costs between $5000 and $9000, depending on the type of breast implants that are best for you and whether or not you’ve had prior surgery.

This can be a lot of money, so we offer breast implant surgery financing from PatientFi and CareCredit. These plans can prevent you from having to pay the fees upfront, and sometimes there's even no interest!

2. Am I a good candidate?

Your overall health is the most important factor in deciding whether any kind of cosmetic surgery, including breast implants, is right for you. You need to be healthy and medically fit to undergo any cosmetic surgery safely!

Most patients who are interested in breast implant surgery are young and healthy. But if you have any questions about the safety of breast augmentation surgery we will discuss it during your complimentary consultation at our Nashville or Brentwood office.

You may want to postpone seriously thinking about breast implantation surgery if you …

  • Are under 21 years old,
  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding,
  • Or have any medical problems that require ongoing treatment.

This is elective surgery, so don’t even think about undergoing breast augmentation if it is not as safe as possible!

3. Questions to Consider Prior to Consultation

Before coming to the office to consult with Dr. Alton Ingram, consider your objectives regarding breast augmentation surgery. Be sure to ask yourself these questions to help target your primary area of concern:

  • Am I looking to increase the overall size of my breasts?
  • Am I looking to provide more lift to my breasts without becoming larger?
  • Am I looking to make my breasts more firm and full ?
  • Am I looking to make my breasts more symmetrical?
  • Do I want saline, silicone or Gummy Bear implants?

These are all important considerations to help us understand what exactly you are looking to achieve from your augmentation.

Thinking about these things before your consultation with Dr. Alton Ingram will help us define your goals and will help us work with you to ensure that your Nashville breast augmentation will give you the best results possible.

4. The Consultation

We offer complimentary consultations for Nashville breast implant surgery. Your consultation will be with Dr. Alton Ingram and not with a salesperson. Your consultation will be very in-depth and can take anywhere from forty-five minutes to an hour overall because there is so much to discuss before your breast augmentation surgery.

During this consultation, Dr. Alton Ingram will discuss with you what you want, what makes your body and goals unique, and the best options for you to consider before your breast implant surgery.

Your complimentary consultation also gives you an opportunity to meet Dr. Alton Ingram’s whole staff so you will feel comfortable with your breast implant surgery. We want you to feel as good as possible about your decision to undergo Nashville breast augmentation. We will take as much time as you need to be sure that your choices are just right for you. Please give our office a call at 615-431-3710 to schedule your complimentary consultation. 

Be sure to write down your questions and to bring pictures of how you would like to look after breast implant surgery. We look forward to meeting you!
