Breast Augment Gainesville, Florida
Some women may feel self-conscious about the size, shape, or asymmetry of their breasts. These conditions are not always genetic and can be caused by a variety of environmental factors, hormonal changes, and physiological changes following pregnancy. Breast enlargement surgery, also referred to as augmentation mammaplasty, is performed to accentuate a woman’s curves, enhance her figure, and may also be used to treat size and shape differences in asymmetrical breasts. During a breast augmentation and enlargement consultation at our Gainesville, Florida practice, we will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure or if you can benefit from another procedure to enhance your figure.
The Breast Augmentation Procedure
Breast enlargement surgery can be performed in different ways depending on the needs of the patient. Some breast augmentation procedures involve incisions made around the areola, the dark circular skin surrounding the nipple. In other cases, the incisions during breast enlargement may be made under the breast itself, along the fold where the breast meets the lower chest. Working through the incision, the surgeon will create a pocket in which the breast implant will be placed. The breast implant can be placed either underneath the patient’s pectoral muscle or directly behind the patient’s breast tissue. When you have a breast augmentation and enlargement consultation at our Gainesville, Florida practice, we will determine the most effective incision method and placement of breast implants that will be most beneficial to you.
After Breast Enlargement Surgery
Following breast augmentation surgery, a patient can expect a certain degree of soreness for the first few days and increased sensitivity for two to three weeks. Once you have undergone breast enlargement surgery, the team at our Gainesville, Florida practice can provide you with more detailed instructions for post-surgical care, but in general we advise patients to refrain from physical activities for as long as the surgeon suggests. We also recommend that you should avoid any direct physical contact with your breasts as they will be sensitive following breast augmentation surgery.
