What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation surgery is performed to enhance the size and shape of breasts using artificial implants. Additionally, this procedure can create breasts that are more fitting to your body shape. During your consultation with Dr. Warnock, you will discuss the look that you want to achieve, and your surgery will be customized around these specifications.
The type of implants that are chosen depend on the individual. Implants are typically saline, silicone, or a combination of the two, and are shaped to either be anatomical or round. The size will be determined by patient preference as well as body type.
During surgery, incisions are made in either the armpit, the crease of the breast, or the perimeter of the areola. This depends largely on what look is being created as well as the individual body type of the patient. Entering through the incision, Dr. Warnock will then create a pocket in the breast tissue or chest wall tissue, and the implant will be centered directly behind the nipple.
Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
Women who are dissatisfied with their breasts due to small cup size, asymmetrical breasts, gravity, aging, loss in breast volume after pregnancy or breastfeeding, or have had one or both breasts removed, may be candidates for breast augmentation in Salt Lake City, Utah. During your consultation with Dr. Warnock, factors such as your health, medical history, cosmetic goals and expectations, and any medications you are taking will be discussed.
If you are planning future pregnancies or have a medical condition that could impair surgery or healing, you may want to consider alternative treatments.
What is Recovery Like?
After surgery, many patients experience fatigue, soreness, and discomfort, which can be controlled effectively with prescription medication. Bandages and a supportive strap or bra will be worn for several weeks in order to reduce swelling and support your breasts as they heal. Stitches will be removed after seven to 10 days, and all bruising and swelling should subside within a month. Patients are usually able to return to work once they are comfortable enough to do so, but strenuous activity should still be avoided for the duration of healing.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Although breast implants are designed to be long-lasting, implants should be checked regularly and replaced or exchanged every 10-15 years for health and safety reasons.
