Breast Augmentation/Breast Enlargement

Breast Enhancement

Common Problems

Many women are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts. Some women simply feel that their breasts are too small, while others may be looking to restore a loss of volume or shape after pregnancy or weight loss.

Some Solutions

Breast augmentation (breast enhancement, breast enlargement) is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure among women in Detroit. It can enhance the shape and size of the breasts with the use of implants. Breast augmentation can increase the size of small breasts, balance out breasts which are different in size, restore volume or shape following pregnancy or weight loss, or reconstruct the breasts following mastectomy.

How a Breast Augmentation is Done

There are several different options available in breast augmentation in Detroit, MI. The first involves the type of implant. Implants are made of a silicone shell which may be filled with either sterile salt water (saline) or silicone gel. There are several possible locations for the incisions, including in the crease beneath the breast (inframammary), around the areola (periareolar), or in the armpit (transaxillary). Less commonly, the incision may be located through the belly button (transumbilical). The implant is inserted through the incision and may be placed under the pectoral muscle (submuscular) or over the pectoral muscle (subglandular).

All of these options will be discussed with your surgeon prior to your procedure. The surgery itself usually takes between one and two hours. When completed, the incisions may be taped and a gauze bandage applied.

Keeping the Patient Comfortable

Local anesthesia and sedation may be given to keep the patient comfortable for the breast augmentation procedure. General anesthesia may be administered instead if the patient desires.

The Immediate After-Effects

There may be bruising and swelling on the breasts, and it may take three to five weeks for the swelling to fade. Bandages or dressings are usually removed within a few days, though patients may need to wear a surgical bra for a period of time afterward. Any discomfort that results can be alleviated with medication. Patients are usually able to return to work within a few days.

The Risks

All surgical procedures carry potential risks which should be discussed in detail with your Detroit, MI plastic surgeon. These may include bleeding, infection, poor healing, capsular contracture, and adverse anesthesia reactions.

The Results to Expect

The results of breast augmentation are long lasting. Most women are very happy with their results and experience a boost in self confidence as well.

F.A.Q.

Question:
Does breast augmentation with implants alone produce any lifting of sagging breasts?

Breast augmentation may achieve a lifting effect to sagging breasts for some patients, however every patient is different. Measurements are taken at the time of consultation, which will help determine if a lift may be necessary. Please come in for a complementary consultation.

Question: I am 38 years old, from Detroit and I would like to have a breast lift and augmentation. How long will it take for swelling to go down after the surgery?

Question:
Is it true that having breast implants can affect your insurance coverage, for instance with premium increases, denials of breast-related problems, etc.?

Answer:
Breast implant surgery may lead to further charges, both in the short and long term. Depending on your insurance, the future costs may also not be covered by insurance. Having breast implants may also affect your insurance rates, coverage, and even overall eligibility for health insurance.

Question:
I'm looking to get breast enlargement. If I bring in a picture of breasts I like, can I get mine to look just like the picture?

Answer:
Each person’s structure and skin differs from one another. It’s difficult to say that you will get the exact same breasts. Your own breasts are not even identical. Before having surgery you need to have realistic expectations, feel fully confident in your surgeon, and be prepared for the changes your body will go through.

Question:
I’m 32 and would like to get breast implants. However, I do plan to have children within the next few years. I’ve heard that implants shouldn’t affect breast feeding, but will having children affect the look of my augmented breasts? Is it better to wait until after having children?

Answer:
During and after pregnancy your implants will remain the same. However, there is a chance that your breast tissue may change which can change the appearance of your augmentation.
