What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure designed to enhance the breasts' size, shape, and symmetry. It involves the insertion of breast implants, typically filled with saline or silicone gel, to increase volume and create a desired aesthetic outcome. Dr. McGee also offers breast augmentation with fat transfer, using your own natural fat to enhance your breast volume through a fat grafting process. Deciding to pursue breast augmentation is a personal choice. Typically, women have this procedure to achieve more volume, address changes in breast size due to factors like pregnancy or weight loss, or correct asymmetry. Incisions are placed in inconspicuous locations, such as under the breast crease or around the nipple. The chosen implants are then carefully placed under the chest muscle or behind the breast tissue. 

Before performing any procedure, Dr. McGee gets to know you and listens carefully to your goals, helping you refine your aesthetic vision and ensuring your results beautifully complement your physique, lifestyle, and aesthetic ideals. 

To meet each patient’s unique needs, Dr. McGee also performs the following procedures:

Breast implant removal can be performed for individuals who no longer wish to have implants or those whose implants have aged and ruptured. Dr. McGee uses non-invasive high-resolution ultrasound to look for rupture of silicone implants.

Breast revision is available for those who need to have their implants replaced due to rupture or who wish to change the size, shape, or type of their implants. 

Mommy Makeover is a comprehensive surgery that incorporates breast augmentation along with procedures such as a tummy tuck to enhance and restore the body after changes resulting from pregnancy and childbirth.

Bespoke Approaches for Natural Results

What are the benefits of Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation can also address asymmetry or uneven breast size, creating a more balanced and proportionate figure. The procedure's individualized nature allows you to achieve results that align with your aesthetic goals, resulting in a natural-looking outcome that complements your overall physique. By achieving your desired breast size, you may find it easier to shop for clothing that fits well and boosts your engagement in various social and personal settings.

From Vision to Reality

Your Breast Augmentation Procedure

The Lafayette breast augmentation procedure is generally conducted under general anesthesia. After making an incision, Dr. McGee creates a pocket either behind the chest muscle (submuscular) or directly behind the breast tissue (subglandular). Your chosen implant is then carefully placed inside the pocket. Dr. McGee adjusts the implant for optimal positioning before closing the incisions. Incision locations can vary, with options including inframammary (under the breast crease) and periareolar (around the nipple). The entire procedure typically takes a few hours. You will be monitored during the initial recovery period before being released to return home with a friend or family member to drive you.

Breast Augmentation Recovery and Aftercare

Following surgery, you may have some discomfort, bruising, and swelling, which can be managed with prescribed pain medications and cold compresses. A supportive surgical bra is usually worn to minimize movement and provide gentle compression during initial healing. You will need to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for six weeks to allow your body to heal properly. Follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor progress and address any concerns. As swelling lessens, you will begin to see the results taking shape, but the final outcome may take a few months as the breast implants settle and tissues fully heal. Open communication with Dr. McGee throughout recovery ensures a smooth healing journey.

The Fullest Expression of You

Breast Augmentation Results

Dr. McGee’s skill as a surgeon provides natural-looking results that align with your goals and complement your body's proportions. It's important to have realistic expectations and understand that while there will be an immediate difference after surgery, the full results may take a few months to become apparent as swelling subsides and the implants settle into their final position. Breast augmentation results can last for many years, often one to two decades or longer.

Breast AugmentationFrequently Asked Questions

Breast augmentation involves increasing breast size, primarily enhancing volume and shape. It's suitable for those seeking larger or more shapely breasts.

A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a procedure that lifts and reshapes sagging breasts. It doesn't significantly change breast size but restores a more youthful position and contour by removing excess skin and repositioning the nipple-areola complex. At your followup, Dr. McGee will use a hand-held ultrasound to scan your implant for any issues.

It is important to follow up with your surgeon annually to evaluate your implants. Generally, breast augmentation results can last for up to a decade.
