Many women who are dissatisfied with the size of their breasts and the effect they have on their overall body proportions may find that breast augmentation can help them achieve their goals. Breast augmentation is designed to help a patient enhance the size, shape, and curvature of the breast. This procedure can add volume and definition to the breasts with results that look natural. With breast augmentation, Dr. Stafford Broumand can give you more youthful, sensual-looking breasts and enhance your self-confidence with new, beautiful breast contours.
Breast Enlargement with Implants
Breast augmentation, also referred to as breast enlargement, offers patients the chance to add fullness and volume to the breasts. There are many choices you have when it comes to deciding the type, size, and shape of breast implants that will ultimately have the best possible effect on your appearance. During your initial consultation with Dr. Broumand, he will go over all of your options with you, showing you the different types of breast implants available and answering any questions you may have. At this meeting, you and Dr. Broumand will decide the best option for your goals.
For those undergoing a breast augmentation, Dr. Broumand offers both silicone and saline options. If implants do not seem like the right option for you, please contact us ask about alternative procedures we offer.
Breast Augmentation Procedure
A breast augmentation begins with incisions that are made at the base of the areola or near the underarm crease. These incisions are small and will be virtually indistinguishable following your recovery. After the incisions are made, the implant of your choice will be inserted and placed below or on top of the breast muscle. Once the breast implants are in place, the incisions will be closed with small sutures.
Breast augmentation is performed under general anesthesia and can be completed on an outpatient basis.
Breast Augmentation Recovery
Some bruising, swelling, and numbness in the breasts and nipples can be expected after breast augmentation surgery; however, these effects should fade over the first few weeks. Any discomfort can be managed with medication. Most patients are able to resume normal daily routines after about one week. Dr. Broumand will advise you not to engage in strenuous activities for several weeks following the breast augmentation procedure.
Keller Funnel™ Technique for Silicone Breast Implants
Dr. Broumand often utilizes the Keller Funnel™ “No-Touch” technique for silicone implant breast augmentation procedures. The Keller Funnel™ is a unique device designed to place the breast implant without touching the skin in the process, ultimately reducing risk of trauma to the outer shell. Plus, Dr. Broumand is also able to gently slide the implant into the breast pocket without ever touching the implant during insertion. By avoiding contact with the patient’s skin during placement, there is less chance of the implant being affected by residual bacteria that lives on our skin. Dr. Broumand believes this technique can lower the risk of capsular contraction (scar tissue forming around the implant, creating a hardened feel). The Keller Funnel™ technique can also minimize residual scarring because the procedure can be performed utilizing a smaller incision.
