Breast augmentation can give your breasts a fuller, more contoured appearance with natural-looking results. This procedure is often very beneficial for women who have never been satisfied with the size of their breasts, as well as for those who have lost breast volume due to pregnancy, weight loss, the natural process of aging, or other factors. With silicone or saline breast implants, Napa plastic surgeon John P. Zimmermann, MD can help you achieve the look you desire with customized procedures designed to help you meet your goals.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation, also referred to as breast enlargement, can enhance the shape, size, and contours of the breasts with beautiful results. Breast implants can help you add volume and fullness to the breasts, renewing balance and symmetry between the breasts and having a positive effect on your body proportions. Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed surgical cosmetic treatments in the U.S., and it has helped millions of women enhance not only their appearance, but also their self-esteem.
Breast implants come in a variety of sizes, shapes and types. These include silicone and saline-filled implants, round and teardrop shapes, and a range of sizes that can provide you with the best results. Dr. Zimmermann will show you a number of different options during your initial consultation and help you determine the best implants for your goals.
Breast Augmentation Procedure
During breast augmentation surgery, incisions can be made in the armpit, in the crease where the breast meets the chest, or in the dark-pigmented area surrounding the nipple (areola). The area of incision will depend on the type of implants chosen and your unique needs. Dr. Zimmermann makes every effort to make the incisions as discreet as possible. The implants will be placed either behind the chest muscle or directly behind the breast tissue. Dr. Zimmermann will discuss all aspects of implant placement with you before surgery to determine the technique that can meet your goals with the most natural-looking results.
The breast augmentation procedure typically takes about two hours or less to complete; however, the length of surgery varies with each patient. Most patients can resume normal daily routines within one week after breast augmentation surgery. Exact recovery processes vary with each patient – Dr. Zimmermann will be able to give you a better idea of what your recovery will likely entail once he has evaluated your needs during the initial consultation.
