Breast Augmentation in Uniontown, OH
With our popular culture’s heightened focus on appearance and breast size, in particular, some smaller-breasted women feel self-conscious about their appearance. Other women can find that their breasts have lost some volume due to weight loss, aging or the aftereffects of pregnancy. The only true way for women in Uniontown to increase the size of their breasts is through cosmetic surgery, such as the breast augmentations performed by Dr. Steven Carp of Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center.
What is a Breast Augmentation?
In order to augment the breasts, implants are placed inside, increasing their size and volume. Usually performed as an outpatient procedure, the surgery typically takes only a couple hours, along with a similar recovery period. However, the occasional circumstance may require an overnight hospital stay.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Women who undergo breast augmentation often report the following positive results:
- The fullness lost from weight loss, aging or the aftereffects of pregnancy is returned
- Greater confidence in both social and business situations coupled with higher self-esteem
- An improvement in how their clothes fit, particularly if they were experiencing an uneven breast size
- Visibly improved breast appearance, almost immediately
How is a Breast Augmentation Performed?
With the patient under general anesthesia within a hospital setting, an incision is made in each breast, into which Dr. Carp places the implants. The type of implant chosen, as well as the amount of existing breast tissue possessed by the patient, determines the exact location of the incision.
Once the incision is made, Dr. Carp creates a pocket for each implant. A submuscular pocket is created below the pectoral muscle while a submammary pocket is created above the pectoral muscle but below the breast tissue. The type of implant chosen by Dr. Carp and the patient determines where the pocket is placed.
Once each implant has been positioned, layered sutures are used to close the breast tissue, followed by either a suturing of the outer skin or possibly the simple closing of the incision with surgical tape. Almost immediately, thanks to the great skill and experience that Dr. Carp brings to the procedure, many women report feeling significantly better about their breasts’ appearance.
