One of the most popular surgical procedures with our female patients is the breast augmentation, and Dr. MacLennan is one of the top surgeons offering breast augmentation to her patients. There are many reasons why women experience changes in their breasts, including aging, pregnancy, breast feeding, and significant weight fluctuations. When your breasts lose volume or begin to sag, they do not appear youthful and perky anymore. Such drastic changes in the breasts also tend to affect the confidence in women. We at Mountain Lake Plastic Surgery are committed to helping women regain their youthful breast contours and boost their self-confidence.
In case of apparent asymmetry, the breast augmentation procedure helps restore the balance and symmetry. Dr. MacLennan will evaluate your breasts before personalizing the procedure for your individual requirements.
Are you a good candidate for augmentation?
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your breasts, breast augmentation is the perfect procedure for you. In case you have genetically small breasts or if you have experienced volume loss with time, the augmentation procedure uses breast implants to restore the shape and volume of your breasts. The naturally beautiful and youthful contours will also boost your self-confidence.
If you find any visible asymmetry in your breasts, the augmentation procedure will help you achieve the desired shape and size. Just like in the case of any other surgical procedure, a good candidate for augmentation must also be in good physical and emotional health. Your breasts should be fully developed before you choose to undergo the augmentation procedure and you must be a nonsmoker. When you achieve the breast contours you always desire, it will also restore your self-image and help you be more confident in your appearance.
In case you are fine with the size of your breasts but are only struggling with the drooping skin, Dr. MacLennan recommends that you undergo the breast lift procedure instead. Usually, most of our patients experience both a change in the volume of their breasts and sagging and hence, undergo a combination of breast augmentation and breast lift to increase a cup size and get perkier breasts that are youthfully positioned on the chest.
What is the augmentation procedure like?
Your breast augmentation procedure starts with your initial consultation where Dr. MacLennan will talk about your specific concerns and aesthetic goals. We will give you detailed information about all your augmentation options such as the kind of implants and their projection. Our team helps you choose the best option with different samples to determine which one you feel the most comfortable in.
The augmentation surgery takes about an hour, and we ensure that your incisions are inconspicuously places so that there is no visible scarring. The incisions are usually made under your breast crease and your implants can be placed either under the breast tissue or partly under the chest muscle. Mountain Lake Plastic Surgery uses the latest techniques to ensures your safety at all times during your surgery.
What is your augmentation recovery like?
It is important that you let your body heal well after the augmentation surgery. When you have planned to lose weight or become pregnant again in the near future, you must wait for some time until your body is steady and can take the trauma of a surgery. After the augmentation surgery, most of our patients return to their work within a week. However, we recommend that you avoid any strenuous activities for at least 3 weeks, allowing your body sufficient time to heal. When you ensure that all aftercare instructions are followed well, you will enjoy a smooth recovery period. You must also keep up with the post-surgery appointments since Dr. MacLennan will evaluate your recovery during these appointments. This is also when we tell you the right time to begin exercising.
