Gummy bear implants are a new approach to breast implants and breast augmentation, but are they worth it? Learn more about the pros and cons here.
It’s normal to have a few things you might want to change about your appearance, including your breasts. We gain or lose weight, go through pregnancy, or simply get older. It is completely natural for our breasts to change shape. If you are exploring ways to improve your breasts, then breast augmentation might be right for you. Breast augmentation surgery is a safe procedure that uses placement of silicone or saline breast implants to enhance the breasts.
How is breast augmentation surgery performed?
We place breast implants under the breast tissue and sometimes under the muscle. These implants enhance your breast size while also giving you a natural look and feel. Typically the scars are fine lines located at the lower, outer part of your breasts, covered by a bra.
Is breast augmentation right for me?
During your visit, we will help you try out different breast implant sizes. This process allows you to visualize and feel the difference a breast implant would make on you. Only you can make that decision, but Dr. Tannan’s experience as a board-certified plastic surgeon will serve as a guide. We work with you to find the right sized breast implants that will give you the most natural look and feel. Sometimes, your breast tissue has stretched so significantly from changes with weight, pregnancy, etc. In this case, Dr. Tannan may also recommend a breast lift at the time of your breast surgery to restore the youthful shape of your breast while maintaining a natural look.
How much does breast augmentation cost?
We put together a fantastic resource that explains the typical cost of a breast augmentation, as well as other cosmetic plastic surgery procedures. Take a few minutes with our helpful guide – the Plastic Surgery Cost Calculator.
What is the recovery like after breast augmentation surgery?
Recovery from breast augmentation surgery is fairly straightforward. You should expect to refrain from any strenuous activity for 3-6 weeks. It helps to plan to take 1-2 weeks off from work after surgery. We typically recommend that you also avoid activities involving overhead shoulder motion so your breast implants can heal in the proper position.
