Breast Augmentation in Portage Lakes, OH
Women seek breast augmentation for a variety of reasons. They may have lost volume in their breasts due to pregnancy, weight loss or aging, or they may be feeling self-conscious with a small bust size. Aside from breast augmentation, there is no practical and effective way to increase breast size. Dr. Steven Carp of Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center specializes in helping patients in Portage Lakes achieve their desired appearance through plastic surgeries including breast augmentation.
What Is a Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation surgery uses implants to improve the volume and size of breasts. The surgical procedure generally lasts only one to two hours, and the immediate recovery process is only about two hours as well. The surgery is often performed on an outpatient basis, though it may require staying overnight in the hospital, for special circumstances.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation
The positive results of breast augmentation include:
- Improving volume lost through weight change, aging or pregnancy
- Greater self-esteem and a boost in social and professional confidence
- For women with uneven breasts, augmentation can balance appearance
- Immediate and noticeable improvements in appearance
How Are Breast Augmentations Performed?
Breast augmentation is a significant procedure that is performed in a hospital and requires the patient to undergo general anesthesia. The surgeon makes an incision in each breast through which the implants will be inserted. The exact location of the incision depends on the type of implant chosen and amount of the patient’s breast tissue.
Following the incision, Dr. Carp creates pockets within the breast to hold the implants. Depending on the style of implant chosen, the pocket will either go underneath the pectoral muscle (submuscular) or will be placed under the breast tissue but on top of the pectoral muscle (submammary).
Once the implants are properly positioned, the breast tissue is sealed with layered sutures. Suturing the incisions or sealing them with surgical tape completes the surgery. Dr. Carp’s skill and experience improves his patient’s satisfaction with their breasts’ appearance after surgery.
