Procedure Steps for Breast Augmentation with Implants

Since surgery in Virginia Beach for breast implants is an invasive procedure, patients undergo general anesthesia.

Breast augmentation surgery with implants has several approaches that result in a few differences. For example, the surgery may make incisions around the areola, within the breast fold to insert breast implants, but the best choice depends on the row and size of the implant.

After making incisions, breast implants either go underneath the pectoral muscle or above the muscle and behind the breast tissue. Your unique physical anatomy, choice of implant type, and enlargement size are factors that influence which approach is best for their procedure.

Recovery After Breast Implant Surgery

Throughout the first recovery weeks after breast implant surgery at Galardi | Bowen Plastic Surgery, it is essential to avoid strenuous activities that apply excess pressure to the chest. Additionally, it is vital to avoid sleeping on the chest or raising the arms above shoulder height, as these actions strain the incisions and skin as they heal.

Reap the Benefits of Breast Implants in Virginia Beach

In Virginia Beach, breast implants primarily are for enlarging a woman’s breast size. However, breast implants could make several other cosmetic improvements to the breasts. For example, surgery could correct breast asymmetry, particularly when one smaller breast impacts a patient’s type of bra and wardrobe choices.

Additionally, breast implants are an excellent option for correcting breast changes due to pregnancy, significant weight loss, aging, and other medical conditions, such as breast cancer. For example, the breasts may lose considerable volume after pregnancy or weight loss, resulting in substantial breast sagging and shape changes. Breast implants could restore breast volume along with shape and size for a fuller, more youthful appearance.

Lastly, many women get breast implants to improve their self-confidence and body proportions. Smaller breasts may not be in harmony with a woman’s hips or waist, but the right-sized breast implants could rebalance proportions and enhance the body figure. If you are interested in getting breast implants in Virginia Beach, schedule a consultation with Galardi | Bowen Plastic Surgery. We do great work with great results.
