Breast Augmentation Q & A

What is breast augmentation?

Women who are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts or who have had a mastectomy may consider breast augmentation. The surgical procedure improves or restores the appearance of a woman’s breasts. While some women choose to increase their breast size, breast augmentation surgery can also be done to make breasts symmetrical or address any issues that affect their appearance. The surgeons at Nu Image Aesthetics & Wellness Institute use either saline implants made from silicone and filled with a sterile saltwater solution, or silicone implants filled with a plastic gel.

Why do women have breast augmentation surgery?

Patients have breast augmentation for a variety of reasons, including the feeling of satisfaction with their bodies. For example, some women prefer to have larger or smaller breasts. Women with breasts of different sizes may want to make them more even in appearance. Breast cancer survivors may choose to have breast implants and reconstruction after a partial or full mastectomy to maintain the appearance of their breasts. Often after breastfeeding or losing a significant amount of weight, a woman’s breasts may appear deflated. Breast augmentation can restore the appearance of a patient’s breasts after these events. The team at Nu Image Aesthetics & Wellness Institute wants to help all of their patients to look and feel as beautiful on the outside as they feel on the inside.

What happens during and after breast augmentation surgery?

Before any procedure is completed, the doctors at Nu Image Aesthetics & Wellness Institute perform an extensive pre-surgery consultation to identify exactly what the patient wants to achieve through surgery. This helps them determine the best method and implant to achieve the desired results. The surgeons have many years of experience performing breast augmentation surgeries. They surgically implant breasts to meet and surpass the expectations of their patients.

The surgery itself is typically performed through small incisions in the armpit or in the crease underneath the breast. Modern surgical techniques mean that patients experience very little scarring from the surgery. After the surgery, patients usually experience temporary swelling and need to recover for a few days. Patients usually wear compression bras and undergarments during the healing process.
