What is Breast Enhancement?

Do you see your body as less than perfect because of your breasts? If so, you may experience times when you feel embarrassed about your appearance and how your clothes fit your body. You may even avoid certain types of clothing just to feel more comfortable. Breast surgery aims to change the size, shape, and position of the breasts. After the surgery, your breasts are in proportion with your waist and hip size, so you have better overall proportions. Women who have breast enhancement also find that they feel more feminine and confident.

What Do I Need to Do Before Having Breast Enhancement?

At Richmond Plastic Surgeons, our surgeons specialize in breast enhancement, and our capacity to deliver high-quality, compassionate care to every patient is why we have an excellent reputation in the Richmond area.

What Should I Expect During My Breast Enhancement Consultation?

Your breast enhancement consultation begins with a discussion to understand the motivation for considering breast enhancement. The highest level of satisfaction occurs when women are personally motivated to change the shape and size of their breasts. After the discussion, we perform a comprehensive breast examination during which we make recommendations about the best approach for your breast surgery. This opens the conversation to a collaboration between you and your plastic surgeon to define a plan that fits your needs.

Will I Have Scars After Getting Breast Enhancement?

Breast enhancement surgery can cause scarring, but the scars are very inconspicuous. The most common locations of the scars are in the natural crease under the breast and in the armpit area. Some procedures require incisions around the areola and down to the breast crease. You should expect the scars to fade during the first year after the surgery, but the scars will not completely disappear.

When Will I See the Results?

You will see results immediately after the breast surgery. Your breasts will be wrapped in a compression garment, and you will have some swelling. Full results can be seen after you are completely healed.

What Are Possible Complications of Breast Enhancement?

Any type of surgery has a risk of complications related to the anesthesia, medications, and changes to the tissues. Breast implants also have some inherent risks. You can reduce the likelihood of developing complications associated with breast enhancement surgery by working only with a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon like those at Richmond Plastic Surgeons.

How Long Will the Results of Breast Enhancement Last?

Generally speaking, breast surgery produces permanent changes to the breasts. In the case of breast augmentation, the implants may need to be replaced after 10 to 20 years or when you decide the change the size of your breasts.

How Much Does Breast Enhancement Cost in Richmond?
