Breast augmentation surgery involves enlarging the breasts and giving them a more appealing shape and appearance. Breast augmentation corrects a number of problems through reshaping, restoring fullness, and correcting breast asymmetry. If you’re considering breast surgery please read the below information and contact our skilled Chicago breast augmentation surgeons to determine if the surgery is right for you.
Is Breast Augmentation Right for You?
If you want your breasts to be larger or fuller, a breast augmentation may be the right choice for you. Implants provide fullness to the upper chest and lower part of the breasts. If you wish to regain the breast size and shape you had years ago, augmentation with implants may be an option.
What is Breast Augmentation Surgery?
Breast augmentation surgery involves reshaping the breasts with implants of varying shapes and sizes, consisting of saline or silicone. Nipples (areolas) can be reshaped and refined during the surgery to exhibit a more appealing size and position. The surgery can be done by inserting implants either above the muscle (behind the breast tissue) or under the chest muscle.
Advantage of Breast Augmentation Surgery
Full, shapely breasts can greatly improve a woman’s sense of well-being and confidence. Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure designed to enhance both the size and contour of a woman’s breasts. The results are a more proportionate bustline that lends to an overall enhanced body shape.
The advantages and disadvantages of each approach to breast augmentation will be discussed with you at the time of your personal consultation, ensuring your best results will be achieved.
After making an incision, Dr. Paltriguera will place the implant underneath the chest-wall muscle. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. The operation usually takes between one to two hours to complete.
During the recovery process, patients may experience soreness, sensitivity, and swelling.
