Breast augmentation is a popular cosmetic surgery to change the shape or size of your breasts. You may consider breast augmentation due to:
To get breast augmentation, you must be in good health and 18 or older. You should always make the decision to have breast augmentation for your personal satisfaction, not to please someone else.
Prior to breast augmentation at POSH Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Gbulie goes over your surgical options, including implant type and shape, as well as placement and incision location.
During the procedure, Dr. Gbulie places breast implants under or above the chest muscle. The implants create the new, reformed shape, symmetry, and size of your breasts. The procedure is done while you’re under general anesthesia.
When surgery is complete, Dr. Gbulie closes the incisions with dissolvable stitches.
Saline and silicone breast implants are available at POSH Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. Both types come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and both are safe options.
Saline implants are inserted as shells that are filled to create your custom shape. These are appropriate for people 18 and older and require a smaller incision site.
Silicone implants feel soft and natural, and are less prone to rippling. You have to be 22 or older to get silicone implants for breast augmentation.
When you come in for your consultation, Dr. Gbulie reviews your options with you and makes recommendations based on your goals, body shape, and age.
You typically go home the same day as your surgery. Following your procedure, expect slight bruising, swelling, and soreness in your chest.
You’ll be instructed to wear a compression garment for a set amount of time following surgery — usually a few days — to help minimize discomfort.
After about a week, you can start to resume normal activities, but you’ll need to avoid strenuous activity for up to eight weeks. Dr. Gbulie gives you thorough aftercare instructions according to your particular surgery and health.
