Breast augmentation can be performed with an implant, with your own body fat, or with both. During breast implant placement, a small incision is placed below the breast. The breast implant is placed in a position either above or below the muscle to give a natural and long-lasting outcome. To add volume to the breast with your own body fat, liposuction is performed elsewhere on your body and that fat is transferred to the breasts. The surgery itself is performed on an outpatient basis under sedation and takes about an hour to complete. Dr. Gurley has perfected her technique to allow patients to drive and return to work as early as the next day.
With FDA approved implants, rapid recoveries and long term beautiful results, women have been enjoying their bodies after breast enhancement surgery. We believe our patients do better when they learn all the facts surrounding a procedure, so we make it our mission to listen, teach, and answer questions.
Alternatives to breast augmentation are fat grafting and breast lifts. Dr. Gurley will consult with you individually to determine which procedure is right for you.
Dr. Gurley's patients often say, "Breast augmentation recovery was easier than I thought." That's because there are no drains, no pain pumps, no binding and no stitches that need to be removed. Dr. Gurley's patients are off pain medication within 24 hours and can return to their normal daily routines. This includes showering, driving, and returning to work. Dr. Gurley will also provide you with a few simple post-operative movements you can do to reduce stiffness and promote faster healing. Sports and exercise are not recommended for several weeks after a breast augmentation.
Our patients are so much more knowledgeable today than ever before, and it's a pleasure to hear their thoughtful questions and help them move forward with a procedure they have been considering for quite some time. We have the before and after care down to a science. Our patients know they are in good hands from the minute they contact us to years after the procedure. We take responsibility for helping our patients make good decisions and get the very best outcomes possible.
