Breasts are an important part of femininity, but over time physical changes to your body can alter their appearance. Natural aging, weight loss and pregnancy can all affect the size, shape, quality of tissue and volume of the breasts, which may cause you to feel frustrated or lose confidence in your appearance.
Having full, shapely or youthful-looking breasts can be crucial when trying to achieve the ideal aesthetic, which is why many women seek out breast enhancement. At Dr. Clayman’s Plastic Surgery Center and Miracle Spa, Drs. Loren and Mark Clayman perform breast augmentation surgery in order to help uplift your self-image and perfectly complement your body contour.
Is Breast Augmentation Right for You?
Breast Augmentation uses implants to increase the fullness of the breasts. If you feel as though your breasts are too small, disproportionate to the rest of your body, or if you have had one or both breasts removed from mastectomy, then a breast augmentation may be right for you.
You may, however, wish to improve the positioning of your breasts on the chest wall along with making enhancements to their shape and size. In this case, a breast lift is often advised as it places the breasts in a more attractive position. Both procedures can be performed simultaneously to create the best aesthetic efficiently.
Your Options with Augmentation
Breast surgery has seen several innovations that have made certain procedures more patient-specific. The type of implant you choose as well as its shape and size are all considerations that need to be made before undergoing surgery. The placement of your implants is also important so you are completely satisfied with your results.
With the amount of options you have to choose from, it can be difficult to find the best solution when learning about breast augmentation. Through a personal consultation, however, you can discuss your expectations and choose the technique that suits you best.
Comprehensive Treatment Planning through Individualized Consultations
In order to design the most comprehensive treatment plan for you, we will schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Clayman. Together, you can discuss your aesthetic goals and determine whether you are healthy enough to receive surgery.
Your consultation will allow you to choose the implants you desire as well as determine the shape you would like. Saline and silicone gel implants are effective when used to increase fullness to the breasts; however, the implant you choose depends on your budgetary constraints as well as the consistency that you desire. Round and contoured implants are available, in saline and silicone versions, that can influence the profile of your new breasts.
Next, you and Dr. Clayman can decide which method of implant placement will work best. Implants can either be inserted behind the glandular tissue and in front of the breast muscle, partially behind the muscle, or completely behind the muscle. Implant placement relies heavily on the amount of volume loss you have experienced in your breasts as well as the most natural-looking aesthetic. With a physical examination, Dr. Clayman will be able to suggest the healthiest technique for your breast augmentation based on your desires.
You will also discuss the type of incision that will need to be made to the breast. Several incisions are used during breast augmentation depending on the type and size of the implant you and Dr. Clayman choose, as well as your body contour. Incisions are made as inconspicuously as possible to minimize and hide any scarring.
We will show you before & after images of previous procedures and go over post-operative care instructions during your consultation. It is also beneficial to ask any questions you may have that will help you better understand your options with breast augmentation. Take as much time as you need to weigh your options, and once you are ready, you can schedule your surgery with us.
The methods used to complete your breast augmentation are entirely specific to you and chosen based on the unique characteristics you present. Your surgery will take place in a private surgical facility as an outpatient procedure. You can rest assured knowing that you are in good hands with Drs. Loren and Mark Clayman.
