BENEFITS OF A BREAST AUGMENTATION
VECTRA 3-D IMAGING
Vectra 3-D Imaging brings your results to life right before your eyes. This innovative machine allows you to see the possible outcome of your surgery from different angles. Vectra 3D recreates your anatomy with your proposed changes and allows you to compare yours before and after simulation.
You can go through various options until you find the perfect size and shape for you. The Vectra 3-D not only allows for breasts patients to see their potential results but also allows facial and body cosmetic procedures. This technology allows for patients to get an idea of how their new body will appear after surgery.
INCISION AND IMPLANT PLACEMENT
During your consultation with one of our four surgeons, you will discuss your procedure goals and options. After that, your surgeon will recommend a procedure plan that aligns with your goals and fits your specific case needs. Finally, if you are ready to schedule your consultation, click the button below.
Inframammary Incision- This is the most common incision placement. It is located at the base of the breast, the crease between your breast and your chest. This location has the least complications and easily hides the scar.
Periareolar Incision- The Periareolar Incision is made around the areola.
Axillary Incision- This incision is made in the natural crease of the armpit and is acceptable for some patients.
Sub-glandular: If you have a lot of breast tissue, a sub-glandular placement is right for you. Sub-glandular or over the muscle placement, the implants are placed directly behind your breast tissue but above your pectoral muscles.
Submuscular: This implant placement type is perfect for women with little to no breast tissue. Here the implant is placed beneath their pectoral muscles to help disguise the edges of the implants making your results appear more natural.
Saline: We offer saline-filled implants that can be manipulated during surgery to achieve the desired result.
Silicone: In addition, we also offer a wide variety of silicone-filled implants. These implants offer a more natural look and feel, and oftentimes have fewer complications after surgery.
Both types of implants come in a variety of sizes. Whether you are wanting to go on the conservative side of implants or a larger-sized implant, you can customize and see how you will look using our 3D Imaging System.
BEFORE AND AFTER
BREAST AUGMENTATION RECOVERY
In the first 24-48 hours of recovery, patients will experience soreness and tightness of the chest similar to breast engorgement with breastfeeding or a hard workout.
By the time one week rolls around most all of the pain will subside.
At six weeks you are cleared for full workouts and activities. Although, some patients can work out at three weeks. By this point, your breasts will begin to drop to a more natural position.
