Find out more about this cosmetic procedure and what it can do for your appearance and self-esteem.

Breast AugmentationEveryone wants to feel confident and happy in their skin, but sometimes we aren’t always lucky to be born with the perfect body. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve it with a little help from your Naperville plastic surgeon. If you are considering how fuller breasts could give you the curvier figure you want, then you aren’t alone. In fact, breast augmentation is one of the top five cosmetic procedures performed in the US. However, before you opt for this treatment, find out more about the procedure and what you can expect from your results.

What is breast augmentation?

This surgical procedure uses either fat or implants, usually made from silicone, to help increase the overall size of the breast.

The benefits of breast augmentation

Breast augmentation can be a wonderful way to improve someone’s confidence and self-esteem. It can also help improve the overall shape and look of your body, particularly for those who’ve lost breast volume after significant weight loss or pregnancy.

Furthermore, it can also be an ideal option for patients looking to reconstruct their breasts after having a mastectomy or experiencing a traumatic injury.

What breast augmentation won’t do

It’s important to keep expectations realistic when it comes to any cosmetic surgery. That’s why we always sit down and discuss your treatment goals during the consultation phase. We always want to make sure that you understand the results you’ll achieve through breast augmentation or any procedure your Naperville plastic surgeon performs.

While breast augmentation is a great way to get shapelier breasts, this surgery will not fix drooping or sagging breasts. However, a breast lift can also be used along with breast augmentation to help increase both the volume and the shape if this is the look you want to achieve.

Does breast augmentation sound like the right cosmetic option for you? If you are looking to improve your look before the summer, there has never been a better time to see your Naperville and Oak Brook plastic surgeon, Dr. Alexandrina S. Saulis at Aesthetic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Call our office to schedule a consultation!

One of the most commonly requested services at plastic surgery offices across the country is breast augmentation, which is a change to the look or size of the breasts. It is most common in women who want more of an hour-glass shape. Breast augmentation is a major surgery, so it is important that you understand the procedure completely before scheduling your appointment with Naperville board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Alexandrina S. Saulis, M.D., F.A.C.S.

What Exactly Is Breast Augmentation?

A breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that enlarges the breasts. There are two main types of breast augmentations: via fat transfer (from one part of the body to the breasts) or by adding breast implants. Dr. Saulis specializes in implantation surgery, where an incision is made under the breast, or near the areola. A silicone gel filled or saline fluid filled implant is placed in the submuscular position. When finished, the incision is closed and bandaged for healing. The entire process takes from three hours to around one hour to complete.

Common Questions About Breast Enlargement

Patients usually come to Naperville board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Saulis’ office with plenty of questions about the procedure, and that is understandable. There are risks that come with surgery, so it’s important to discuss these with your doctor of choice. One common question is about the risk of infection -- infection is possible with any surgery, so the doctor will prescribe antibiotics. Another question is whether there will be visible scarring and the answer is possibly, but in many cases the scars heal and fade away over time. The incisions are made in a way that minimizes the appearance of scars from the augmentation surgery.

If you’re considering breast augmentation surgery and have questions, the best course of action is to ask the doctor face to face. Call Dr. Saulis’ office to schedule an in-office consultation.
