Breast Augmentation

Atlanta Breast Enlargement

Women who desire larger breasts may wish to have a breast enlargement (augmentation) procedure. Breast augmentation may also be indicated for women who have one breast that is noticeably smaller than the other.

Breast augmentation is intended to give the patient larger and more shapely breasts. A more positive self image may also be a result of breast enlargement.

Breast enlargement is done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. A small incision is made under the breast and a silicone gel or saline implant is inserted under the breast tissue or under the breast tissue and the underlying muscle.

Initial discomfort is controlled with oral medication. Light activities can be resumed as tolerated and aerobic activities can be started in about 4 weeks. Moving or sliding the implants within the breast pockets during the postoperative period may reduce the frequency of wrinkling.

A Breast Lift can enhance the result of a breast augmentation  if the breasts are saggy in addition to being small.

Breast enlargement is considered cosmetic and therefore is not covered by insurance. The patient is responsible for payment.

The specific risks and the suitability of this procedure for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are unusual.
