What is a Breast Augmentation?
A breast augmentation is a breast enhancement technique that uses breast implants to enhance the shape and size of the breasts. This is a proven treatment for increasing breast size and fullness, which can complement the figure and enhance the overall appearance. Patients may choose to pursue a breast augmentation to address a loss in breast volume or to simply to achieve a more fulfilling appearance. In any case, a breast augmentation is an effective and long-lasting solution.
How Much Does a Breast Augmentation Cost?
Like many cosmetic surgeries, the cost of a breast augmentation can vary significantly depending on the treatment goals and needs of the patient. To determine the cost of your breast augmentation treatment, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Banks’ team. During your consultation, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan that includes the exact cost of your treatment. In an effort to make this and other treatments as affordable as possible, we offer flexible financing options.
What is the Breast Augmentation Treatment Like?
The breast augmentation procedure is performed with general anesthesia to ensure your safety and comfort throughout the surgery. All breast augmentation procedures are performed at our local surgery center. To perform the surgery, incisions might be made in one or more of the following locations:
- In the armpit
- Along the crease beneath the breasts
- Around the nipple
Once incisions are made, we will place the desired breast implants either above or beneath the chest muscle depending on the patient’s preference. We offer both saline and silicone implants to provide patients with a full range of options for their breast augmentation procedure. Once the implants are placed, the incisions will be closed and the treatment will be complete.
What Can I Expect After the Breast Augmentation Treatment?
After a breast augmentation, you will need to take at least one week off of work and other activities. During this time, you can expect swelling, bruising and discomfort in the breasts. These symptoms are most severe within the first week, but we will provide you with a prescription for pain medication and clear guidelines to make your recovery as comfortable as possible. Patients can expect to be fully healed about 6 to 8 weeks after their surgery.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from My Breast Augmentation?
The results from a breast augmentation will be visible immediately, and will become more noticeable as the body heals and any side effects fade. Breast augmentation results are permanent, as breast implants are designed to be life-long devices. However, some patients may choose to remove or replace their implants over time as their cosmetic goals evolve. If you do not choose to change your implants, you can still expect them to last for many years to come.
Is a Breast Augmentation Right for Me?
If you are looking for a treatment that can enhance the shape and size of the breasts, a breast augmentation with breast implants is a reliable solution. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for this treatment is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Banks’ team at Art of Balance Wellness Spa. During your consultation, we’ll review your treatment goals and determine whether a breast augmentation is the best option for you.
