How Breast Augmentation Enhances Your Bustline and Your Confidence

Candidates for breast augmentation

Before scheduling breast augmentation surgery, Dr. Mizuguchi will review your health history. It is important to be in good physical and emotional health and have realistic expectations about your outcome. This means we will look at breast augmentation before and after photos so you can see the results of previous surgeries. Since breasts change during pregnancy and breastfeeding, it may be wise to wait for implants until after you have completed your family. This allows you to avoid additional surgery to recapture the look you want.

Enhancement options include saline or silicone breast implants, or fat transfer surgery. Implants are a popular option because they provide more dramatic and noticeable results. A fat transfer involves harvesting fat from another region of the body and transferring it to the breasts. This procedure not only gives an attractive shape to the breasts but also gets rid of unwanted fat from other areas. If you are unsure which option will provide you with a better bustline, our team in Louisville, KY can help. We can make recommendations based on your unique needs.

What to expect during surgery

Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure that is usually performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. For breast implant surgery, Dr. Mizuguchi will create an incision and place the implant into position. We are careful to create incisions in natural creases where they are easily hidden after recovery. Once the implants are securely in place, patients are taken to a comfortable recovery area and observed before being released to go home.

Breast augmentation may also be performed with a fat transfer procedure. Dr. Mizuguchi begins by performing liposuction on another area of the body, such as the buttocks or thighs. The fat is then purified and carefully injected into the breasts. This technique provides a natural lift with a more subtle outcome as a result. After surgery, the administrative team at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery will offer aftercare instructions so the areas can heal properly.

Breast augmentation before and after

Many women who undergo breast augmentation can’t wait to show off their new bustline. It is important, however, to spend time taking care of yourself and follow our post-surgical instructions. Patients can expect to feel sore for about 1 – 2 weeks, but pain medication can be prescribed to make you feel more comfortable. It is recommended to take slow walks around the house to encourage healthy circulation and blood flow. Most people will fully recover after 6 – 8 weeks. Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery will schedule follow-up appointments as necessary, so we can monitor your progress.

Are your breasts the reason you shy away from some activities? Before breast augmentation, you may have avoided working out or going to the pool. Or perhaps you don’t feel comfortable in some social situations. A lack of confidence may be limiting your personal success.
