What Are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation uses implants to create larger, fuller breasts and is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries performed in the U.S. Many women find that enhancing their figure with breast augmentation helps their clothes fit better and helps them feel sexier and more attractive.
In addition to cosmetic reasons, breast augmentation is also performed for breast reconstruction. During this procedure, an implant is used to recreate one breast that is severely underdeveloped or to recreate one or both breasts after surgical removal for treatment of breast cancer.
What Should I Expect During My Breast Augmentation Consultation?
You will meet Dr. Jimerson in person to discuss your goals for your figure. He will examine your breasts thoroughly, checking for any lumps, and he will ask questions about your medical history and any medications, herbs, or supplements that you might be taking. You will then try on several different implant sizes to decide the best size for you.
Why Choose Dr. Jimerson?Dr. Jimerson is a board-certified cosmetic surgeon who:
Breast augmentation is performed under general anesthesia, and most patients go home the same day. You can expect to be sore for a few days. Dr. Jimerson may prescribe medication to help you deal with the pain after your procedure.
It is important to note that it is not safe to operate on you if you are a smoker. Dr. Jimerson insists that breast augmentation patients stop smoking at least one month prior to and for one month after surgery. Smoking greatly increases the risk of anesthesia and impedes healing after breast implants.
Can You Have a Phone or Virtual Consultation?
Yes, Dr. Jimerson can provide you with recommendations based on photographs of your breasts that you email to him. An in-person examination will have to be conducted prior to your procedure, but you can decide whether to proceed based on your phone and email communications with the doctor.
What Happens During a Breast Augmentation?
Breast implants are inserted behind the tissue of the breast, and the incisions are made in different places depending on the results you want. The incision locations that Dr. Jimerson recommends using most often are either in the bottom crease of the breast or where the colored part of the nipple meets the lighter skin of the breast. The goal is always to create as small an incision as possible in an area where the scar will be hidden.
What Are the Different Types of Breast Implants?
Today, breast augmentation can sometimes be achieved by taking fat from other parts of your body – usually the buttocks or thighs. This is called breast augmentation fat transfer. With this type of augmentation, your own body’s excess fat is being used, and it allows Dr. Jimerson to literally reshape your body.
The most commonly used implants are:
Saline breast implants, which are filled with salt water after they have been implanted. These are the least expensive type of implants, and if you have enough breast tissue already, the results are excellent.
Silicone breast implants are filled with a silicone gel rather than salt water. The type of silicone has changed over the years so that it is safer today than in the past. The advantage of silicone is that it feels more like natural breast tissue.
During your consultation, Dr. Jimerson will discuss these options with you in detail so that you can make the best decision for you.
After Your Breast Augmentation Surgery
Following your breast augmentation, you:
Will need to wear a bra around the clock for the first 2 weeks following your breast augmentation
Should expect mild to moderate pain during the first week after your procedure. This is easily controlled with prescription pain medication
You can resume normal daily activities after 1-2 weeks and can start exercising after 4-6 weeks.
Breast Augmentation Cost
The cost of this procedure depends on the type of implants you get, the length of surgery, and other various factors. Be sure to talk to Dr. Jimerson during your consultation about financing and/or the price of this procedure.
