Breast Augmentation Q & A

What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgery to give you larger, fuller, or more symmetrical breasts. It’s common to be unhappy with the appearance of your chest. Insecurities might arise from your natural shape or the changes that come with pregnancy and breastfeeding. Fortunately, you have options for adjusting your breasts with augmentation. 

Dr. Ingram welcomes you to Ingram Cosmetic Surgery for a personalized consultation. After an examination and review of your medical history, he can help you determine if breast augmentation is a safe option. He also decides on the techniques to use based on your goals and expectations.

How does breast augmentation work?

Ingram Cosmetic Surgery offers customizable breast augmentation surgery to alter the shapes or sizes of your breasts. Breast augmentation alters the size of your chest with your choice of implant. Dr. Ingram helps you compare options ahead of time. 

During the surgery, Dr. Ingram places the implant either under or over your pectoral (chest) muscle depending on the type of implant you choose during a consultation. The incisions go under your breasts so the scars are not visible. 

After surgery, you stay at Ingram Cosmetic Surgery for a brief observation period as the effects of the general anesthesia wear off. You get detailed recovery instructions ahead of time and will come back for follow-up visits as you heal.

How do I choose implants for breast augmentation?

Dr. Ingram offers several types of breast implants and can help you weigh your options during your breast augmentation consultation. Saline implants, a popular option, are filled with liquid saline. They’re generally best for younger patients who don’t have excess skin.

Silicone breast implants are another option. They’re softer than saline implants, and some people think they have a more natural texture. These may be your best choice if you have naturally large breasts already or have loose skin around your breasts to accommodate the implants.

Aside from the material, you also get to choose the shape of your implants. Both varieties come in round and teardrop shapes.
