Do you wish you had more confidence in the appearance of your breasts and felt more comfortable with your breast size and shape? Breast augmentation can effectively provide women with a breast size and breast shape that can make them feel their best. Hundreds of thousands of women seek out breast surgery every year to attain the curvy, voluptuous physique they desire to enhance their self-confidence in their appearance. Dr. Thompson has devoted his plastic surgery career to helping patients achieve the body that makes them look and feel their best. His passion, training, and experience in breast surgery allow him to provide you with beautiful, eye-catching results.
What Is Covered During Your Breast Augmentation Consultation?
Your breast augmentation consultation with Dr. Thompson is one of the most important aspects of your surgery. An extensive, in-depth consultation allows Dr. Thompson to fully understand your breast augmentation desires in order to provide custom results that best highlight your body’s natural physique. There are many implant options available to provide you with the aesthetics you desire, and what works best for you will depend on your preference and body type. Dr. Thompson evaluates your breasts using the High Five® System to determine the appropriate implant volume and location, and this system involves measuring the base width of the breasts, pinch thickness, nipple to inframammary fold length, and maximum stretch of the breast skin envelope. To help patients better understand the breast augmentation process and better visualize their results, Dr. Thompson commonly incorporates state-of-the-art technologies such as TouchMD and Crisalix® 3D Imaging in his consultations.Schedule A Consultation
Breast Augmentation FAQs
What will my recovery be like following my breast augmentation?
You will experience bruising and swelling following your procedure. A specialty support bra is to be worn for a couple of weeks following your treatment to ensure proper healing. Most patients return to work in less than a week after their procedure and can resume their regular exercise routine after six weeks. Most major swelling subsides by six weeks.
Is breast augmentation recovery painful?
Pain management is one of Dr. Thompson’s top priorities. This is why he employs ERAS® (Enhanced Recovery After Surgery) techniques. This system uses multimodal peri-operative care pathways that start before your operation to help ensure comfort after the procedure.
Will I have scarring following my breast augmentation?
Scarring is determined by both the patient’s natural healing process and the location of your incisions. Dr. Thompson uses either an inframammary fold incision or a periareolar incision. These techniques may result in mild scarring along the breast crease or around the areola. However, most patients find that their scarring fades over time, and new advancements in scar management, such as bioCorneum®, can further improve the appearance of scars.
Is there a way to increase the size of my breasts without using implants?
Yes! New fat grafting technologies have advanced the fields of non-surgical breast enhancement. Fat grafting for breast augmentation involves injecting patient-harvested fat into the breasts to increase their size. However, fat grafting only provides a minimal size increase and can only be performed on patients who have plenty of excess fat stores to be harvested from other areas of the body.
What procedures can I combine with my breast augmentation?
A breast augmentation is commonly combined with breast lift surgery to ensure the new, fuller breasts are perky and youthful. Other procedures often combined with a breast augmentation include liposuction treatment and tummy tuck surgery. If you are interested in all or most of these procedures, you may be interested in a Mommy Makeover that incorporates them into a single operation.
What are the risks of breast augmentation surgery?
As with any surgical procedure, there is some degree of unavoidable risk. Dr. Thompson does his best to ensure his patient’s safety, but no surgery is ever completely risk-free. The risks of a breast augmentation surgery may include:
- Capsular contracture
- Allergic reaction to anesthesia
- Poor scarring
- Poor wound healing
- Implant rotation
- Implant rupture
Am I a candidate for breast augmentation surgery?
Candidates for breast augmentation surgery should be physically healthy, with no plans to become pregnant or breastfeed within the next six to 12 months. Candidate’s breasts should be fully developed, which usually occurs between the ages of 18 and 24. Breast augmentation should not be performed on breasts that are still developing. If you are dissatisfied with the size, shape, or symmetry of your breasts, a breast augmentation may be right for you.
