Breast augmentation (breast implants) can boost your body image and give you renewed confidence. Americans spent over 16 billion in 2018 on Cosmetic Plastic Surgery with Breast Augmentation taking the #1 spot according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Breast Augmentations continue to be the most popular surgical procedure here in the United States and there is no sign of that changing as more women elect to have procedures while working remotely.
At Watt Plastic Surgery in Tampa, our team is highly experienced in breast implant surgery. We’ll help you determine if this cosmetic procedure is the right choice for your needs.
What to Expect from Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is a surgical cosmetic procedure. After your initial consultation, the procedure will be scheduled.
Anesthesia is administered for breast augmentation surgery. This step ensures that you stay comfortable during the procedure.
Incisions are then made so that the breast implants can be put in place. Our experienced surgeons position the incisions to reduce scarring as much as possible. You’ll also discuss the incision options ahead of time to select the best location for you.
Once the incisions have been made, the breast implants can be positioned. There are multiple types of breast implants, with each variety providing different benefits. Saline and silicone gel are the most common types of breast implants. The implants may also be smooth or textured. We’ll help you select the best type of implant for both comfort and look.
With the breast implants in place, the incisions can be closed. You’ll see the results of breast augmentation immediately after surgery, and patients can typically return home within the same day.
After Breast Augmentation Surgery
In the weeks after breast augmentation surgery, you’ll need to rest and avoid intense physical activity. Inflammation and scarring from the procedure will lessen as you recover.
It’s important to check in with your doctor frequently after breast augmentation surgery. Our expert team will ensure that you get the best care for the best result.
Is Breast Augmentation Right for Me?
Breast augmentation can improve:
- The fullness of the breasts
- The shape of the breasts
- The symmetry of the breasts
- The proportion of the breasts in comparison to the rest of the body
This cosmetic procedure may be the right choice for you if your breasts have become less full due to pregnancy, aging, or weight loss. Additionally, patients who have experienced a breast injury or underwent a mastectomy may feel more confident after breast augmentation surgery.
