Breast Augmentation in Cuyahoga Falls

Some women lose breast volume or firmness as a result of weight loss, aging or pregnancy. Others with naturally smaller breasts want to increase their breast size. Many women desire more youthful-looking, beautiful breasts and the increased confidence and self-esteem that having larger, firmer breasts provides.

Although advertisements and commercials say it is possible to increase breast size and firmness with exercise, creams or pills, the only practical way to achieve larger, firmer breasts is through a breast augmentation procedure. Dr. Steven Carp of Carp Cosmetic Surgery performs breast augmentation surgery for clients in nearby Cuyahoga Falls.

What is a Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation involves inserting implants in the breasts to create greater volume and size. The surgical procedure takes approximately one to two hours. The recovery period after surgery is usually about two hours. Breast augmentation surgery can be performed as an outpatient procedure for some patients or require an overnight hospital stay for others.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation

There are many positive results after the breast augmentation procedure, including:

  • Restored breast fullness
  • Greater professional/personal confidence and self-esteem
  • Better-fitting clothes and an improved, balanced appearance
  • Visible improvements in the patient’s breast contours

How Is a Breast Augmentation Performed?

Breast augmentation is a major surgical procedure requiring general anesthesia. Dr. Carp places an incision in both breasts prior to inserting the patient’s implants. The exact location of each incision depends upon the implant type. A submuscular pocket beneath the pectoral muscles or a submammary incision, beneath the breast and above the pectoral muscle, may be created.

After inserting the breast implants, the doctor closes the breast tissue with layered sutures. Closing the outer skin layer with surgical tape or sutures completes the procedure.
