Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that enhances your breasts, making them larger, fuller, or more symmetrical. It's not uncommon for individuals to feel discontent with the appearance of their chest. Issues may arise from one's natural shape or changes due to pregnancy and breastfeeding. Fortunately, breast augmentation presents a reliable option for adjusting the look of your breasts.
Dr. Ingram invites you to Ingram Cosmetic Surgery for an individualized consultation. During this consultation, he will conduct a thorough examination and review of your medical history to ensure breast augmentation is a safe option for you. Dr. Ingram carefully selects techniques tailored to your unique goals and expectations.
The ideal candidate for breast augmentation is a woman in good health who has realistic expectations about the results. Generally, the procedure is suitable for those who wish to increase the size or fullness of their breasts, correct asymmetrical breasts, or restore the breast volume lost due to pregnancy or weight loss. The suitability is determined after a detailed examination and review of medical history by a certified plastic surgeon.
Ingram Cosmetic Surgery provides customizable breast augmentation procedures to modify the shape or size of your breasts. With your choice of implant, breast augmentation alters the size of your chest. Prior to the surgery, Dr. Ingram guides you in comparing options.
During the procedure, Dr. Ingram positions the implant either under or over your pectoral (chest) muscle, based on the type of implant selected during your consultation. Incisions are made under your breasts to conceal any resulting scars.
Following the operation, you stay at Ingram Cosmetic Surgery for a brief observation period as the effects of the anesthesia subside. We provide detailed recovery instructions in advance and schedule follow-up visits to monitor your healing process.
Choosing the right implant is crucial for your satisfaction post-procedure. Dr. Ingram offers various types of breast implants and will assist you in considering your options during your consultation.
Saline implants, a popular choice, are filled with liquid saline. These implants are generally recommended for younger patients without excess skin. On the other hand, silicone breast implants present another option. These implants are softer than saline implants and are believed by some to have a more natural texture. Silicone implants may be an ideal choice if you already have naturally large breasts or have loose skin around your breasts to accommodate the implants.
In addition to the material, you can also choose the shape of your implants. Both saline and silicone implants come in round and teardrop shapes, allowing you to select the form that best complements your body structure.
After surgery, patients are observed for a brief period as the effects of anesthesia wear off. Patients usually experience some soreness, swelling, and bruising, which gradually subside over a few weeks. Detailed recovery instructions are provided, which may include how to care for the surgical site, medications to apply or take orally, and when to schedule follow-up visits. The recovery period varies among individuals, but most can return to normal activities within a few weeks.
As with any surgery, breast augmentation carries some risks, including infection, changes in nipple or breast sensation, implant leakage or rupture, and the formation of scar tissue that distorts the shape of the implant (capsular contracture). It's important to discuss these risks thoroughly with before making a decision.
Most women can still breastfeed after breast augmentation, as the surgery usually doesn't involve the ducts leading from the nipples. However, the ability to breastfeed can be influenced by the type of incision and where the implant is placed. This should be discussed with your surgeon if you plan to breastfeed in the future.
