What does the procedure entail?
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 general anesthesia and takes about an hour to complete.
Are there any alternatives?
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.
What can I expect?
In most cases, no pumps, drains, binding or wrapping are required. Most 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 6 weeks after a breast augmentation.
Who is a good candidate?
You may consider breast augmentation or breast implants if:
You have small, underdeveloped, or uneven breasts Your breasts have lost their shape due to pregnancy, breastfeeding or the natural aging process You are in good health and are not currently pregnant or nursing
