Breast Augmentation in Massillon, OH
Some women have naturally small breasts that make them feel self-conscious while others may lose volume over time due to pregnancy, weight loss or aging. There is no better way to increase breast size than with breast augmentation. Dr. Steven Carp provides patients in the Massillon area with the opportunity to feel more confident about their breasts at Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center. His great skill has led to many positive reactions from women, as each patient is always satisfied with the outcome.
What Is a Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation surgery involves putting implants in the breasts to give them greater volume and size.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation
The positive results from having a breast augmentation include restoring fullness lost through weight loss, pregnancy or aging; an improved self-esteem and greater confidence professionally and socially; a more balanced appearance and better fit in clothes for women with uneven breasts, and an immediate, visible improvement to the breasts.
How Is a Breast Augmentation Performed?
The patient will go under general anesthesia. Dr. Carp will make an incision in each breast in order to insert the implants. The incision’s exact location depends on the implant type and amount of the patient’s breast tissue.
After making the incision, Dr. Carp will then create pockets for the implants. Depending on the type of implant, the pocket will either be submuscular (under the pectoral muscle) or submammary (beneath the breast tissue and on top of the pectoral muscle).
After the implants are positioned, layered sutures will close the breast tissue. Finally, the outer layer of skin will either be sutured or closed with surgical tape.
The procedure usually takes between one and two hours, while the recovery period can take up to two hours. The surgery can either be performed on an outpatient basis and might require staying overnight in the hospital, depending on the circumstances.
