Breast Augmentation Q & A

 

What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure used to change the shape and size of your breasts. Also called breast enlargement or augmentation mammoplasty, these surgeries can enhance your bustline. This procedure can:

  • Increase breast size and firmness
  • Improve breast asymmetry
  • Reverse breast sagging
  • Increase breast volume, especially after pregnancy
  • Reconstruct breasts after traumatic injury or mastectomy

Dr. Leedy uses silicone implants filled with a saline-water mix to enhance your breasts. He decides which implants to use based on the desired size and shape of your breasts.

How do you know what size breast augmentation is best?

When you see Dr. Leedy, he uses 3D imaging to help you see the final result ahead of time. He may also offer you DazzylleⓇ take-home breast implant sizers. This innovative product allows you to “try on” different-sized breast implants at home to determine what size you like best.

What happens during breast augmentation?

When you see Dr. Leedy for a breast augmentation, he performs surgery while you're under general anesthesia. To minimize postoperative discomfort, he either makes incisions along the bottom breast crease or around the outer edge of your nipple. As a result, scars are barely noticeable.

Dr. Leedy inserts implants through these incisions, placing them either under your breast tissue or behind your chest muscle. He decides where to place them during your initial consultation by considering factors like the size and condition of your breasts and the size of your implants.

The whole procedure takes about an hour.

What is the recovery for breast augmentation like?

Because Dr. Leedy uses surgical techniques to improve your recovery experience, these procedures are done on an outpatient basis. After your surgery, he recommends a short nap, a shower, and practicing upper body exercises.

Although you may experience some soreness, most patients can move around comfortably enough to go out to dinner the same day as their procedure and return to most of their normal activities within 48 hours.

Dr. Leedy asks you to avoid strenuous activities and direct breast stimulation for a few weeks.
