Breast Augmentation in Newtown Square, PA
Pollard Plastic Surgery provides breast augmentation services for residents of Newtown Square, PA.
What Is Breast Augmentation?
Pollard Plastic Surgery provides breast augmentation surgery for the residents of Newtown Square, PA. Breast augmentation surgeries are one of the most commonly performed plastic surgeries in the United States. The surgery involves using breast implants or fat transfer to increase breast cup size or to restore the breasts’ volume after significant weight loss or pregnancy/breastfeeding. This surgery only restores volume or increases size; it doesn’t fix drooping/sagging breasts (a breast lift is needed in this case). You’re a good candidate for this procedure if you want to add size to your breasts, have asymmetrical breasts, or have breasts that didn’t develop properly.
How Is Breast Augmentation Performed?
When you go in for surgery, you’ll be placed under general anesthesia. Incisions will be made in areas of the breast where scarring will be minimally visible. Depending on the type of augmentation you’re undergoing, the incision will be made around the areola, under the breast, or in the armpit. The pocket will be filled with a breast implant either under the muscle or on top of it. The incisions will then be closed and you’ll be allowed to go home within a few hours of surgery. Your new breasts will be covered in gauze and wrapped in elastic bandages and a support bra to allow your breasts to heal properly. You’ll have to reduce your activity for a few days and might experience discomfort and swelling for a few weeks post-operation.
