The breast augmentation surgery is among the most popular cosmetic plastic surgeries completed by Dr. Frenzel. Many women come to Dr. Frenzel looking to transform their breasts and have a fuller, more proportional silhouette. If you’ve lost volume, size, or shape due to aging, breastfeeding, or other factors, the breast augmentation surgery is the perfect solution to give you back your confidence and gain a fuller, more symmetrical appearance.
The main causes for women to undergo breast augmentation are to improve subtle changes brought on by aging and gravity, correct an inherited deformity (where one breast does not develop like the other), to acquire a more flattering physique in and out of clothing, and to restore breasts to a more pleasing size due to changes in breast size and shape during pregnancy, weight loss, etc.
During the surgery, Dr. Frenzel will make an incision in either the belly button, outer border of the colored portion of the areola, in the fold of the breast, or in the armpit area. Once an incision has been made, he will place either a silicone or saline implant into each of the breasts, placed above or below the pectoral muscle.
There are several options for a successful breast augmentation surgery, which requires patients to do their research, ask any and all questions they have during the consultation with Dr. Frenzel, and make decisions that will best meet their exact needs.
Once the surgery is complete, recovery is vital. Patients are required to wear a compression garment and avoid any heavy lifting and strenuous activity. It’s important for patients to understand the need for recovery. While recovery takes place rather quickly, following protocols in place will help you heal even faster and give you the greatest results.
After the bruising and swelling subsides, you’ll begin to experience the full effect of the procedure, but you’ll also notice all of the new changes you need to accommodate. You’ll have to get used to the added weight of the implants, you’ll need to be measured to find your new bra size, you might even need new clothes to fit your new body.
This is an exciting process that we hope you enjoy. We want our patients to love their body and walk with confidence. After breast augmentation, our hope is that you have a renewed confidence in not only your body, but from within. When you feel good about yourself, you’ll notice a difference in how you approach life.
