Breast Augmentation Fayetteville
Breast Augmentation uses an implant to give the breast added volume and improved shape. Whether the reason is to regain your previous fullness or to enhance your existing breast volume, breast augmentation can be tailored to meet your desired outcome.
Reasons to Consider Breast Augmentation
- Breasts are too small/not proportional to the rest of the body.
- Improve symmetry by resolving a difference in breast size.
- Post-mastectomy reconstruction.
- Breast restoration after childbirth.
Breast Augmentation FAQ
1. How will Dr. Taylor evaluate me for breast augmentation surgery?
Dr. Taylor will examine your breasts and perhaps take photographs for your medical record. He will consider such factors as the size and shape of your breasts, the quality of your skin and the placement of your nipples and areolas (the pigmented skin surrounding the nipples). If your breasts are sagging, a breast lift may be recommended in conjunction with augmentation.
You should come to the consultation prepared to discuss your medical history. This will include information about any medical conditions, drug allergies, medical treatments you have received, previous surgeries including breast biopsies, and medications that you currently take. You will be asked whether you have a family history of breast cancer and about results of any mammograms. It is important for you to provide complete information. If you have not had a mammogram within the past year and are over the age of 25, Dr. Taylor will recommend you to have one.
There is no scientific evidence that breast augmentation increases the risk of breast cancer.
2. What should I expect on the day of breast implant surgery?
Your breast augmentation will be performed in our fully accredited, state-of-the-art on-site surgery center.
When surgery is completed, your breasts will be placed in a surgical bra and you will be taken to a recovery area where you will continue to be closely monitored by our well-trained professional staff of registered nurses and doctors.
3. How will my breasts look and feel after the breast implants have been placed?
A day or two after surgery, you should be up and about. Sutures will be removed in about a week and you may shower as soon as the next day.
Some discoloration and swelling will occur initially, but this will disappear quickly. Most residual swelling will resolve within a month.
4. When can I resume my normal activities after my breast augmentation?
After breast augmentation, it is often possible to return to work within just a few days or a week, depending on your job. Vigorous activities, especially arm movement, may be restricted for two to three weeks.
You may drive as soon as you are off the pain medication which is usually in 2-3 days.
5. Will I be able to breast feed after augmentation?
Breast augmentation should not affect the ability to breastfeed.
6. How long will the results last after a breast augmentation?
Except in the event of implant deflation requiring surgical replacement with a new implant, the results of your breast augmentation surgery will be long lasting. However, gravity and the effects of aging will eventually alter the size and shape of virtually every woman’s breasts. If, after a period of years, you become dissatisfied with the appearance of your breasts, you may choose to undergo a breast lift to restore their more youthful contour.
