Dr. Rammos believes every woman deserves breasts that make her feel confident. This is not the case for all women unfortunately. Perhaps you were born with smaller breasts than you wish to have, they have lost volume due to breastfeeding and pregnancy, or they are simply sagging due to age. Breast augmentation procedures can address these issues quickly by changing the shape, size, and appearance overall of your breasts.
What Is Breast Augmentation Surgery?
Breast augmentation surgery is a procedure that employs breast implants to both enlarge and enhance your breast shape, projection, and size. Precise incisions and placement of implants inside pockets of breast tissue increases breast size along with reshaping your chest. Breast augmentations is one of the most popular procedures in plastic surgery every year and is referred to by many names.
Breast Augmentation Implants
Dr. Rammos will go over the various kinds of implant options that are available to you during your initial consultation. This will help you decide which implant to choose based on your specific goals.
Inframammary Fold Incision
The first is the inframammary fold incision which is located underneath the breast. This incision can have the implant placed either below or above the pectoral muscles and is barely noticeable once it heals. The inframammary fold incision is the preferred type for any breast augmentation.
Recovery from Breast Augmentation Surgery
Common symptoms after having a breast augmentation include:
- Pressure along sternum
Your skin and muscles will soon relax to accommodate your new implants.
Taking around three to five days off of work is common for most patients after their breast augmentation surgery. Light exercise can be resumed after about two weeks out from your surgery, but be careful to avoid exercises that target the chest like push-ups. More intense exercise can be resumed after a month, and you will be released to full activity after six weeks. Scar therapy can start one week after your surgery to make sure that you have the best possible results for your scars.
