Give Your Breasts a Boost With Breast Augmentation

By: Dr. Nana Mizuguchi


It is no secret that some women are self-conscious about their breasts. While there are many ways to boost your breast size, including push-up bras, some women want to go the surgical route. Patients can meet with a dual board-certified aesthetic and plastic surgeon, like Dr. Nana Mizuguchi, to discuss their options.

Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery has helped many women achieve fuller breasts through cutting-edge breast enhancement surgery. Learn how we perform this popular procedure by calling our office in Louisville, KY for a cosmetic assessment today.

How does breast augmentation work?

Many women use push-up bras to make their breasts look fuller, while others use cosmetics to create the appearance of a contoured chest. But for those who are tired of relying on these methods, breast augmentation may be the answer. This procedure is designed to increase the size of the breasts through implants.

Breast implants are made from medical-grade saline or silicone materials and come in a wide range of sizes and shapes. During surgery, Dr. Mizuguchi will choose the best implant size and shape for your body type and desired results. We help women in Louisville reach many kinds of cosmetic goals, including:

  • Increase breast size and volume

  • Restore breast volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding

  • Correct asymmetrical breasts

  • Enhance the overall contour of the breasts

  • Improve self-confidence and body image

What should I know about breast implants?

Potential candidates should consider every aspect of breast augmentation, including what it means to have breast implants. During a consultation, Dr. Mizuguchi will review implant size and placement options, incision location, and recovery time. We can also answer any questions as they come up. Some things to keep in mind include:

  • Patients must be 18 years old to receive saline implants and 21 years old for silicone

  • Breast implants may need to be replaced at some point since they are not lifetime devices

  • There is a minor risk of implant rupture or leakage, which is why women are encouraged to get regular screenings

How do I prepare for breast enhancement?

A consultation is the best time to find out if you are a candidate for breast augmentation. Dr. Mizuguchi will discuss your medical history, current medications, and any allergies to ensure you are healthy enough for surgery. We will provide information about how to prepare and reduce your risk of complications.

Breast augmentation does require 1 – 2 weeks for an initial recovery, with full recovery occurring between 6 – 8 weeks. Most women find their breasts look and feel more natural within this timeframe. However, patients must follow our post-surgery guidelines and wear supportive garments to ensure the safest results. Our staff can prescribe pain medications to manage any discomfort.

What will my breast augmentation results look like?

Women who meet with Dr. Mizuguchi for breast augmentation surgery are generally satisfied with their new breast size. This procedure makes it easier to fit into your favorite clothes and look great in a bathing suit. Patients at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery are also excited to have a fuller and more voluptuous figure that makes them feel more confident long-term.
