What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures Dr. Breister Ghosh offers. Whether you're unhappy with the size of your natural breasts or wish to restore fullness in your breasts following childbirth, breast augmentation is likely a great choice for you. Breast augmentation is a surgical cosmetic procedure that uses saline or silicone breast implants to enhance the overall size and shape of the breasts.
Choosing the right size and material breast implants for you can be daunting, but Dr. Breister Ghosh is here to help you every step of the way. Having served as an investigator in an FDA-approved clinical study of silicone breast implants, Dr. Breister Ghosh has the knowledge and expertise to inform you about the pros and cons of both saline and silicone breast implants. The main advantage of silicone implants is that they have a softer, more natural feel when compared to saline. This makes silicone implants a much more popular choice among our patients.
After deciding on the type of implant, patients can start thinking about the shape and size of implant they might like. Dr. Breister Ghosh will thoroughly discuss the benefits and drawbacks of each type of implant and use her years of extensive training to help you choose the right shape and size of implant to reach your personal goals
What are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation?
There are many benefits of receiving breast augmentation with Dr. Breister Ghosh and her medical team, including:
How is Breast Augmentation Performed?
Your breast augmentation will be performed by Dr. Breister Ghosh in an accredited outpatient surgical center. To begin, incisions can be made either around the border of the areolas or underneath the breasts. Through these incisions, a pocket is made either above or below the pectoral muscle for the implant to be placed in. Submuscular placement essentially means that the breast implant is placed in a pocket under the pectoral muscle. This location is generally acknowledged as the gold standard for breast augmentations, as having the implant under the muscle provides an extra layer of coverage which can create a more natural-looking and -feeling breast post-surgery. Dr. Bresiter Ghosh will discuss which method is best for you and your desired results during your private consultation. After the breast implants are placed in the appropriate position, Dr. Breister Ghosh will check the breasts for symmetry before closing the incisions. The entirety of your breast augmentation may take up to 2 hours to complete.
What Can I Expect After My Breast Augmentation?
Following your surgery, Dr. Breister Ghosh will fit you with a compression bra. This bra will provide your breasts with support, reduce swelling, and promote healthy healing throughout your recovery process. A bandeau may also place over the breasts to encourage the implants to settle. Dr. Breister Ghosh and her team may recommend wearing your compression bra for up to 4 weeks following surgery. During this time, it is recommended you refrain from exercise. Patients should talk with Dr. Breister Ghosh about the physical demands of their job, but should usually plan for around 5 days off work. Dr. Breister Ghosh will follow up with you for at least 4 months following breast augmentation surgery to ensure you are healing well and that there are no complications with your breast implants.
How Much Will My Breast Augmentation Cost?
