Thinking About a Breast Augmentation? Consider the Benefits

  • Improved Shape – Furthermore, breast Implants improve the shape and contour of breasts that are tubular in shape or sagging.
  • Clothing Fits Well – You will notice that your dresses, swim suits, and other apparel will fit much better. Your profile is noticeably enhanced from both the front view and the side view. Women claim that after the breast implant surgery they experience a boost in self-confidence and productivity.

Improve your image with a Breast Augmentation

Firm and full breasts are a sign of youth in women. Many women wish to achieve a large and round appearance to their breasts with a spherical shape, while others prefer a natural type of profile that may use a tear drop shaped implant. Just as important as the shape, the symmetry attained from the breast implants will correct any unevenness in the profile. Your Laufer Institute Surgeon will evaluate your body type and make a recommendation that will help you reach your image goal. Please view our before and after breast augmentation photos.

The Breast Augmentation Procedure Explained

During the 1-2 hour breast augmentation procedure, the surgeon gives you general anesthesia. Then the surgeon places the implants either above or below the chest muscle. The placement is through approximately 3/4 inch incisions in the breast crease or the areola edge. After that, breast implants are pre-filled with a silicone material that is similar in texture to breast tissue. This provides an authentic feel to the breasts. Lastly, the saline implants are then filled with sterile salt water to the size you desire. The salt water level is adjusted while the implants are in your breasts. Your surgeon will then insure that the implants are shaped to the natural anatomical slope of the breasts.

Breast Augmentation
Recovery Period

When return home, you will wear a sports bra to provide the breasts with support during the healing period. If you live close by, your surgeon will ask you if you want a visit from a trained surgical nurse. The nurse monitors your recovery, changes any dressings, and assists you with medication. Furthermore, she provides your surgeon with an update on your condition. Your breasts may swell up for a few days. Consequently, your surgeon will prescribe pain medication to relieve any discomfort. Ice packs are also helpful to reduce swelling. Most women can return to work in one week and resume exercise in about one month or when the surgeon advises.
