Are You a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
Most women who seek breast augmentation are near or at their ideal weight, and are otherwise healthy. If you plan on having children in the near future, you do not have to wait to have breast augmentation. Breast augmentation may be right for you if you want to:
- Increase the size of your breasts
- Bring balance and proportion to your figure
- Enhance the shape and projection of your breasts
If you also have sagging skin or are unhappy with the perkiness of your breasts, you may want to consider a breast lift in conjunction with breast augmentation. Dr. Arledge will help you decide if combining procedures is right for you.
Your Breast Augmentation Procedure
During the procedure, Dr. Arledge will make a small incision underneath the breast and create a pocket for placement of the breast implant. Once the implant is placed, Dr. Arledge will close the incision, and send you on your way to recovery. The procedure takes anywhere from 1 to 2 hours to perform, depending on the specific approach.
Incision and Implant Options
During your consultation for breast augmentation in the Lubbock, TX area, Dr. Arledge will go over your options for breast implants and incisions for surgery. In most cases, Dr. Arledge prefers using a discreet incision below the breast in the inframammary fold. This small incision is well-hidden and is hardly noticeable, while allowing for easy access to the interior chest anatomy. In some cases, Dr. Arledge may use an incision around the areolas (or the darker skin around the nipple).
For Texas women, the breast implants Dr. Arledge offers come in two main varieties — silicone and saline filled. Silicone breast implants are filled with a silicone gel that is soft and malleable, which makes them feel more like real breast tissue. Saline implants are filled with saltwater that is safely and easily absorbed by your body in the event of an implant rupture.
Your goal is my goal:
To enhance your appearance subtly
Most women are ready to return to their everyday activities within one week after surgery. However, you should avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for one month after surgery and should restrict your movements during the first few days. Swelling is very common with breast augmentation and will take a while to subside. Your breasts will also “settle” over time, falling into a natural position on the chest after sitting very high on the chest initially. You’ll be happy to know that the incision scars fade with time and become barely noticeable.
Results and Benefits
Most women are thrilled with their results after surgery and are happy that they decided to undergo surgery. Many women are able to fill out clothing better and feel more confident in their appearances after surgery. Women find that even a moderate enhancement can bring balance and proportion to their figures.
