At Mountain Lake Plastic Surgery, you can choose from a wide range of cosmetic procedures that address a variety of concerns regarding your face, breasts, and body. Dr. Susan MacLennan combines her experience of over two decades with her exceptional surgical expertise to personalize procedures for her patients from Burlington. You also have the option to choose from non-surgical procedures like injectables and fillers if you do not wish to undergo a surgical procedure or only require a small amount of correction. Dr. MacLennan offers an honest and friendly service, and her patients admire the naturally stunning results they achieve at Mountain Lake Plastic Surgery. Our goal is to help you regain or enhance your natural appearance and boost your self-confidence.
One of the most popular surgical procedures remains breast augmentation and Dr. MacLennan is one of the top surgeons offering augmentation. There are many reasons why women experience changes in their breasts including aging, pregnancy and breastfeeding. When you notice sagging in your breasts or have lost volume that has taken away their perky and youthful appearance, it affects your self-image and self-confidence. We are committed to helping women from Burlington enhance their body contours, restore lost breast volume and improve symmetry.
If your breasts are asymmetrical, breast augmentation can help you restore symmetry and desired contours. After we have evaluated your breasts, we will customize the augmentation procedure for you with the use of implants. It is our aim that each of our patients from Burlington achieve their aesthetic goals with perky and youthful breasts.
Are you a good candidate for augmentation?
Women who are dissatisfied with their breasts benefit the most from the augmentation procedure. If your breasts underwent a change and lost volume or if you have genetically small breasts, the breast augmentation procedure will help you achieve naturally beautiful contours that make you feel confident about your body once again. If you find visible asymmetry in your breasts, we can help you achieve your desired shape and size. Just like for any other surgical procedure, a good candidate must be in good physical as well as emotional health to be able to undergo breast augmentation surgery. Your breasts must be fully developed before you choose to undergo the procedure and you must be a non-smoker. When you achieve the breast contours you desire, it can restore your self-image and allow you to be more confident in your social life.
In case you are satisfied with the size of your breast but wish to lift your breasts, then a breast lift or mastopexy is the best procedure for you. In case you require a change in both the shape and size of your breasts, we also offer a combination procedure with both augmentation and lift.
The augmentation procedure
The augmentation procedure begins with a consultation with Dr. MacLennan, who will discuss your specific concerns and cosmetic goals. We will discuss the different implants available to you and help you try different samples to see which one you are most comfortable with. Your surgery will take about an hour to complete and your incisions will be made in well-concealed areas so that you do not have any visible scarring and can enjoy your new breasts with confidence. The incisions are usually made under your breast crease and the implants are placed either under the breast tissue or partly under your chest muscle. We use the latest techniques to ensure your safety at all times during the procedure.
Your augmentation recovery
It is important that after your augmentation, you allow your body sufficient rest time to heal well. If you plan to lose weight or become pregnant in the near future, you must wait till your body is in a steady state before undergoing the augmentation surgery. Most of our patients return to their work within a week after their procedure. You must avoid any strenuous exercises for three to four weeks to allow your body to heal well. Dr. MacLennan will give you specific aftercare instructions that will ensure a healthy recovery. When you visit us for your follow up appointments, we will evaluate your healing and recovery, as well as advise you on when you can begin to exercise.
