Is breast augmentation right for you and your cosmetic goals?

Breast augmentation, or breast implants, is the second most popular cosmetic surgery after liposuction. Breast augmentation has been performed since the early 60s but has undoubtedly been perfected along the way as technology and surgical techniques have improved. If you are interested in turning to our Elmhurst, IL, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Alexandrina Saulis for breast augmentation, here’s what you should know about this popular surgical procedure and what makes someone an ideal candidate.

Reasons to Consider Breast Augmentation

It’s important to know your “why” for getting a breast augmentation and to discuss your goals and cosmetic wants with our Elmhurst, IL, plastic surgeon during your consultation. We must understand the results you are hoping to achieve through breast augmentation so we can determine if this is the right procedure for you. Breast augmentation is ideal for women looking to,

  • Improve breast symmetry and projection
  • Alter the shape or size of your breasts
  • Achieve fuller breasts
  • Improve volume loss after weight loss or pregnancy
  • Boost self-esteem and confidence in your appearance

You may also want to turn to breast augmentation to improve how you look and feel in your bras, bathing suits, dresses and clothing you love. A fuller bust line can help you fill out your favorite outfit in ways that make you feel more confident. Our Elmhurst, IL, plastic surgeon can tailor your procedure to meet your needs and address your unique concerns.

What You Need to Consider

Before undergoing breast augmentation surgery, it’s important to recognize that this is a permanent cosmetic procedure that requires recovery time, active participation and commitment from the patient to achieve their desired results. Here are some questions to ask yourself (and answer honestly) to help you determine if you’re ready to take the next steps toward a breast augmentation,

  • Am I prepared and ready to go through surgery?
  • Am I committed to the recovery process and following my doctor’s instructions?
  • Do I have realistic expectations about what I hope to achieve with a breast augmentation?
  • Am I prepared for the expense of this procedure? Have I talked with my plastic surgeon about payment options and upfront cost?
  • Do I have someone who can drive me home after surgery?

Learn more about a breast lift and the benefits of undergoing this procedure.

Just as you may turn to a facelift to lift sagging, aging skin on your face, a breast lift can also be used to improve the appearance of sagging, aging breasts. Our Elmhurst, IL, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Alexandrina Saulis has helped many women improve the appearance and shape of their breasts with a simple breast lift. Here are the benefits of this popular cosmetic procedure,

Rejuvenate Your Appearance

Our breasts change throughout our lives and are impacted by everything from pregnancy and dramatic weight loss to age. If you're someone who also has large or heavy breasts, you may find that they sag or age prematurely throughout the years. While sagging breasts can certainly make anyone feel self-conscious, a breast lift can restore your physique and improve the position and look of your breasts’ appearance.

Wear Your Favorite Clothes Again

When we don’t feel like we look our best, we often don’t feel as confident in ourselves, and it shows. Whether you want to wear your favorite little black dress out on the town without feeling self-conscious or you want to look great in that bikini you bought for your anniversary getaway to the Bahamas, our Elmhurst, IL, plastic surgeon can work with you to determine the results you want with a breast lift and to make sure you get the revitalized results you’re looking for.

It Could Be a Form of Self-Care

We also help many moms restore vitality and youth back into their bodies. Pregnancy and childbirth can have a significant and long-term impact on a woman’s body. That coupled with the unique challenges and round-the-clock duties of being a parent, and a breast lift could be seen as a way to focus on you and your needs for once. A breast lift could be a gift you give yourself to help regain the body you had pre-kids.

Learn More About Our Covid-19 Safety Precautions

We understand that many individuals are still hesitant to undergo surgery, particularly elective surgery, while Covid-19 rates rise and fluctuate. Nothing is more important for our Elmhurst, IL, plastic surgeon than to ensure every patient's safety. That’s why our entire team still wears PPE to keep you safe. We are also regularly sanitizing our office between appointments. Patients experiencing Covid-19 symptoms are asked not to come into our office and reschedule their appointments.
