What is a Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation allows women to feel more confident and attractive, and it provides a more proportionate figure that fits better in clothes. If you would like larger breasts, implants might be right for you.
If gravity has taken a toll on your natural breasts, you might prefer a breast lift along with your breast augmentation. These procedures may be done simultaneously.
During your consultation with Dr. Combs, he will spend time with you to answer your questions and make sure he fully understands what you want to achieve. He will examine you and take a full medical history to ensure that you are a good candidate for breast enhancement surgery. It is important to him to operate with the utmost integrity and transparency so that you know what you can reasonably expect from your surgery.
There are many decisions to be made before you receive breast augmentation. Besides choosing between saline and silicone implants, you must choose the size, shape, and projection of the implants. Dr. Combs will fully explain all of the options to you so that you can make an informed decision.
What to Expect from Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is performed with the patient under general anesthesia and sedation. You can go home the same day after spending some time in post-op recovery.
To perform the breast augmentation, Dr. Combs will either make an incision under the crease of the breasts or around the areolas (the dark skin around the nipples). In both cases, the scars are barely seen after they heal.
Breast Augmentation Recovery and Aftercare
Results can be seen immediately, but swelling and bruising may prevent you from seeing the final result right away. Avoid lifting heavy objects and sleeping on your stomach as you heal.
You should be able to return to work within one to two weeks, and you can exercise again in about a month. If you have post-operative pain, you can take pain medication.
You will be given a surgical bra to wear during the healing period, and you will see us for follow-up appointments so that we can carefully monitor your healing.
