Breast Augmentation in Baton Rouge
Enhance your bodySchedule A Consultation
Breast augmentation is a surgery performed to enhance the size and contours of the breasts for patients who are dissatisfied with their natural breast volume and shape. This procedure is highly customizable with various implant types and sizes as well as surgical techniques that can be used to achieve your unique breast augmentation goals.
Breast augmentation can increase a woman’s self-confidence and can give her more fulfillment in her everyday life, allowing her to feel as feminine and beautiful as she appears. Dr. Ghere has spent years helping women achieve newfound confidence and emotional encouragement from the satisfaction of their breast augmentation results.
Am I a Candidate for Breast Augmentation Surgery?
During your consultation, you and Dr. Ghere will discuss concerns you have about your breast size and shape, including how they affect you physically and emotionally. Dr. Ghere will also examine your medical history. In general, breast augmentation candidates should be in good health without underlying medical conditions.
Breast augmentation is an ideal procedure for women who:
- Have naturally small breasts
- Have significant asymmetry in their breasts
- Experience a decrease in breast size after aging, childbirth and breastfeeding, or significant weight loss
- Chronic feelings of self-consciousness or emotional distress because of their small breast size or breast shape
How Is Breast Augmentation Surgery Done?
Breast augmentation surgery takes approximately two hours to complete and is performed with the patient under general anesthesia.
Dr. Ghere will create a precise incision either along the inframammary crease below the breasts or along the edge of the areolas. In some cases, an incision within the underarm (known as transaxillary) or within the belly button (known as transumbilical) can be used.
Dr. Ghere will then create a pocket in the breasts either under or over the pectoral muscle, and saline or silicone implants will be inserted.
Should I Combine Another Plastic Surgery With My Breast Augmentation?
Patients who experience breast sagging may want to combine their breast augmentation with a breast lift to create a more perky, youthful bust. Breast enhancement patients may also experience benefits from liposuction surgery to reduce unwanted body fat.
A tummy tuck removes skin and tightens the abdominal muscles to significantly improve your midsection. Also known as abdominoplasty, this procedure is often combined with breast enhancement surgeries in what is known as a Mommy Makeover.
Breast Augmentation FAQs
What Should I Expect for Breast Augmentation Recovery?
After your breast augmentation, you will experience some soreness and swelling. Most patients
plan to take about one week off from work, but Dr. Ghere advises against strenuous activities for several weeks. Swelling and bruising may last for a few weeks to a few months.
Dr. Ghere will provide detailed breast augmentation recovery instructions on how to take care of your incisions and treated areas, wearing your compression garments, drainage, and more.
What Will My Breast Augmentation Results Be Like?
Your implants may initially rest high on your chest for a few months, but after your body recovers and adjusts to your new breast size, your enhancements results will become both more visible and enjoyable.
