Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, also known as breast implants is typically the most common cosmetic surgery performed in the United States. Breast implants can make your breasts larger, fuller and enhance their shape. Breast augmentation can help women with smaller breasts have a fuller profile or give balance to women with asymmetrically sized breasts. Breast implants can also restore a more natural look to women who have lost breast volume due to pregnancy or nursing. There are several different types of breast implants and procedures available to enhance the appearance of your breasts. Schedule a consultation with breast implant surgeon Dr. Alex Colque in Waukesha or the Milwaukee area today.

Reasons for Considering Breast Augmentation:

  • Increase breast size if breasts are too small.
  • Enhance breast shape and contour.
  • Equalize the symmetry in breasts of different sizes.
  • Restore a more youthful, natural shape to breasts after pregnancy or nursing.
  • Reconstruct a breast following injury, mastectomy or congenital abnormality.

 

Breast Implants

Breast implants are commonly performed as an outpatient procedure at a hospital while the patient is asleep under general anesthesia. The breast implant is placed through a small incision to enlarge the breast. There are several incision locations that can be used to insert the breast implant. The incision can be placed in the lower breast fold, around the areola (the darkened skin surrounding the nipple), or in the underarm area.

During the surgery, the breast tissue is raised and the implant is placed behind the breast tissue or the muscle of the chest wall. Implants usually contain either a saline water solution or silicone gel. Breast augmentation can increase the volume of a woman’s breast by one or more cup sizes. The breast implants are typically of equal size, but different sizes can be used to achieve better results in women with asymmetric breasts. Surgery typically lasts about 1 hour. The best technique and incision placement will be decided between you and Dr. Colque during the consultation.

Women who have breast augmentation with breast implants have quick body image changes and are very satisfied with enhanced appearance of their breasts and better fitting clothes and swimwear.

Recovery Process

Breast implant surgery is usually well tolerated. Dressings are applied after the surgery, and a surgical bra is placed to minimize breast movement and speed up the healing process. Once the dressings are removed, a support bra will need to be worn for several weeks. Patients can sometimes have minor pain or soreness after the surgery, which is effectively treated with oral pain medication. Everyone recovers differently, but most patients may return to work and most activities in a few days.
