Eugene, Oregon Breast Augmentation
Women who desire larger breasts may wish to have a breast enlargement (augmentation) procedure. Breast augmentation may also be indicated for women who have one breast that is noticeably smaller than the other.
Breast augmentation is intended to give the patient larger and more shapely breasts. A more positive self image may also be a result of breast enlargement.
Breast enlargement is done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. The implants are placed through a small incision under the breast or around the areola.
Light activities can be resumed as tolerated and aerobic activities can be started in about 3 weeks. Moving or sliding the implants within the breast pockets during the postoperative period may reduce the frequency of rippling.
An additional procedure that would enhance the result of a breast augmentation is a breast lift if the breasts are saggy in addition to being small.
Breast enlargement is considered cosmetic and therefore is not covered by insurance. The patient is responsible for payment.
The specific risks and the suitability of breast enlargement for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are unusual.
“Just a note to say I am so happy with the work you did with me… I love the results and am so happy when I work with a photographer that says he never would have guessed that I had work done on my breasts. That was exactly what I asked for!”
