Breast augmentation is surgery intended to increase the size of or volume in the breast. This may be done using an implant made of silicone or saline or in some cases can be achieved using a technique called autologus fat grafting where the patient’s own fat tissue is transferred from one area of the body to another. At KDS Aesthetics, Dr. Szymanski will evaluate your current anatomy and take measurements at your first consultation. Together you will discuss your goals and what your options may be. Dr. Szymanski will review with your the pros and cons of each option presented and the risks and details of each. For some patients, multiple procedures may be planned to achieve the desired result.
BENEFITS OF SURGERY
- Fuller breasts
- Youthful, rounded breast shape
- Restores a tighter, smoother contour to the breast
WHAT TO EXPECT
Once the decision is made to move forward with surgery, our team will schedule a pre-procedure visit and select your surgery date. A breast augmentation will be performed under general anesthesia, meaning you will be asleep for the operation. Surgery typically takes about two hours to complete. You will have a scar following surgery depending on how the implant is placed, but patients most often find the benefits outweigh the scar. You will go home the same day as surgery to recover. We recommend you plan for extra help around the house for the days following your procedure as you adjust and recover. Recovery for each patient varies and depends on your lifestyle.
YOUR CONSULTATION FOR BREAST REDUCTION
If you are considering a breast reduction or wondering if it may be the right procedure for you, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Szymanski to review your goals and desired results. It is important that you understand and have realistic expectations for the procedure before moving forward. Dr. Szymanski may have you undress to more fully evaluate the area and talk through you concerns.
Deciding if a plastic surgery procedure is the right choice for you is your individual decision. We want you to feel comfortable and confident throughout the process. Before your first consultation with our office, we recommend you write down any questions you have and bring your list with you. It can also be beneficial to bring someone with you who is supportive and a good listener. If you find you have a lot of questions after your consultation, a second appointment to address your questions with Dr. Szymanski is always an option.
