Breast Surgery: Boob Job, to you. Augmentation to us.
It’s no surprise that more and more women are opting for surgery on their breasts these days. The reason patients choose breast surgery is not always limited to aesthetics. For many women, a balance of the body proportions can help improve confidence and self-esteem, whether consciously or subconsciously. Many patients who undergo breast augmentation achieve a healthier outlook on their bodies and are happy to have made this decision for themselves. Are you a good candidate for breast augmentation?
The Breast Augmentation Procedure
A simple breast augmentation is generally performed in our Reno outpatient surgery center under general anesthesia. A small, easily hidden incision is made under the crease of the breast, under the armpit, or around the bottom of the areola. The placement and size of the incision varies depending on the specifics of each surgery, including the type of implants you choose. You can expect about an hour in surgery, followed by an hour of recovery time. Most breast augmentation patients can go back to work in as little as five days, depending on how well they heal and the physical requirements of their job. Full results from a breast augmentation are expected in about three months.
Customizing Your Breast Augmentation Procedure
One thing not many know or think about breast augmentations is that there is no “one size fits all” element to the procedure. They are all surgical, yes, but you could have a breast augmentation with mastopexy (breast lift), or simply need a breast augmentation with implants. Maybe you want saline versus silicone, or vice versa. Even beyond that, everyone has different ideals – you may want large, full breasts called high profile silicone or maybe you’re content with something smaller and more subtle like a low profile implant. With so many different options available to fit your specific needs, Janiga MDs offers Vectra imaging to help you decide the best fit for your body. Vectra takes a “3-D picture” of your body and projects it to a screen. Then you can “try on” different implants, different sizes, and different projections to pick what you like the best with your figure. Breast augmentation is one of the most customizable body procedures offered by plastic surgeons, including Janiga MDs. Our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Timothy Janiga performs this procedure regularly and is highly skilled in helping women achieve their ideal shape.
