Breast Augmentation in Dayton, OH
A breast augmentation often referred to as a “boob job” is one of the most common procedures performed here at Miami Valley Plastic Surgeons. Women in Dayton, Centerville, Troy, Kettering, and the surrounding areas in Ohio can achieve a fuller bosom and a shapelier, more feminine figure by undergoing a breast augmentation.
What Is a Breast Augmentation?
A breast augmentation involves adding implants to increase the size of the breasts, to change their shape, or to correct imbalances. A pocket is made either in front of the chest wall or over top of the pectoral muscle so that a silicone or saline breast implant can be inserted. Implants move and feel much like natural breast tissue, so in many cases, the only difference people notice is an increase in bust size.
Benefits of a Breast Augmentation
A breast augmentation can:
- Help women feel better about themselves
- Restore volume lost due to pregnancy, weight loss, or hormonal changes
- Create a more pleasing shape to the breasts
- Correct symmetrical imbalances whenever one breast is noticeably larger than the other
- Restore a woman’s figure after undergoing a mastectomy for breast cancer
Who Is the Ideal Candidate for a Breast Augmentation?
Doctors generally recommend women be at least 21 years of age before undergoing an augmentation, as breast tissue may continue to develop up until that time. Women should not be pregnant or breastfeeding and should have realistic expectations as to the results of this surgery.
What do I Need to do Before a Breast Augmentation?
If it has been some time since your last mammogram, you may need to have another one performed just before your boob job. You could also need to schedule some time off from work and arrange for someone to drive you home from your appointment the day of your surgery.
What Should I Expect on the Day of my Breast Augmentation?
You will be given intravenous sedation to ensure a light sleep. Prior to receiving the anesthesia, your surgeon will mark the area on your breasts where incisions will be made. Once you are asleep, the implants will be placed, and your incisions will be closed with sutures. The final step involves covering the incisions with a gauze dressing. After surgery, you will then be taken to a recovery room where you will be monitored by one of our staff members until your anesthesia wears off.
How Long Does it Take to Perform a Breast Augmentation?
A breast augmentation is more complicated than many of the other cosmetic surgeries we offer. Your procedure may take between one and three hours, and you should expect to spend an entire day in our office preparing for and recovering from your augmentation.
What to Expect After a Breast Augmentation?
Your breasts may feel tender and swollen for a few days afterwards. Continue to wear your dressing as recommended, and this will alleviate your discomfort and help speed healing. You may take an over-the-counter medication such as ibuprofen if needed to help you manage your symptoms better.
Will I Have Scars After Getting a Breast Augmentation?
Any scars you do have will be hidden underneath your armpit or below the bottom crease of your breast, and will therefore not be overly obvious.
When Will I See the Results?
A breast augmentation provides results that are noticed immediately.
How Long Will the Results of a Breast Augmentation Last?
The results of your boob job will be permanent, but could nonetheless be altered by future weight loss or gain.
Additional Procedures to Enhance Your Breast Augmentation Results
Many of our patients desire a breast lift at the same time they receive implants. The combination of these two procedures will allow you to have fuller breasts that are also more uplifted and youthful.
How Much Does a Breast Augmentation Cost in Dayton?
Because you may have different needs than any other patient, we will not be able to discuss the exact cost with you until after your consultation. Cash, personal checks, and credit cards are always accepted for any of the procedures we offer, and many of our patients will also qualify for low-interest financing.
