Breast Augmentation Providence
Who is a candidate? Women who desire larger breasts. Women who have one breast that is noticeably smaller than the other.
Intended results: Larger and more shapely breasts. A more positive self image.
Procedure description: The procedure is done on an outpatient basis under MAC (Monitored Anesthesia Care). A small incision is made under the armpit (transaxillary) and a silicone or saline implant is inserted under the breast tissue or under the breast tissue and the underlying muscle.
Recuperation and healing: The patient goes home in a bra. The bra helps hold the breasts in the correct position.
- Initial discomfort is controlled with oral medication.
- Sutures are usually removed in 7 days.
- Light activities can be resumed as tolerated. Aerobic activities can be started in about 3 weeks
Other options: An additional procedure that would enhance the result is a Mastopexy (breast lift) — if the breasts are saggy in addition to being small.
Insurance Guidelines: This procedure is considered cosmetic and therefore is not covered by insurance. The patient is responsible for payment.
Note: The specific risks and the suitability of this procedure for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are unusual.
