Breast Augmentation in Hudson, OH

Some women naturally have small breasts that they’re uncomfortable with. Others tend to lose volume due to age, weight loss or pregnancy. There is no effective way to enhance the size of breasts except with breast augmentation surgery, which is frequently performed by Dr. Steven Carp at his practice, the Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center in Ohio.

What Is a Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation involves the placement of special implants in the breasts to increase their size and volume. This surgery generally takes between one and two hours, and the post-operation recovery usually lasts as long as two hours. This procedure can be done either as an outpatient surgery or with an overnight stay in the hospital, depending on your specific circumstances.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation

The beneficial results of breast augmentation surgery can include:

  • Regaining volume lost from pregnancy, age or weight loss
  • Increased self-esteem and self-confidence both socially and professionally
  • More balanced shape and appearance and more clothing options for women with uneven breasts
  • Instant, noticeable enhancements in the breasts

How Is a Breast Augmentation Performed?

This is a major surgery that is done in a hospital under general anesthesia. Dr. Carp creates an incision in both breasts through which the implants will be inserted. The specific location of the incision depends on which type of implant the patient chooses and how much breast tissue there is.

After creating the incision, Dr. Carp forms pockets that the implants will be placed into. Depending on the implant type, the pocket may be under the chest wall (submuscular) or above it (submammary).

Once the implants are in their desired positions, layers of stitches are used to close the inner tissues of the breasts. Dr. Carp finished the surgery by suturing the skin closed or fastening it with surgical tape. Dr. Carp’s superior skill has allowed many women to enjoy greater satisfaction with the way their breasts look.
