Breast implants, which is also known as mammoplasty or breast augmentation, are an enhancement procedure that accentuates the shape and size of a woman’s breasts. Breast implants will make the breasts larger, but the surgery will not move the breasts closer together and it will only occasionally lift sagging breasts. This surgery is the right choice for patients who wish for a fuller profile, who have lost breast volume due to pregnancy or nursing, or who have had breast reconstruction and want to regain a more natural appearance. Because of this, Dr. Oliver P. Simmons may need to combine breast augmentation with advanced breast lift (mastopexy) or other procedures to give you the best result.
Our plastic surgeon may recommend breast implants to:
- Enhance the body shape if breasts are too small
- Increase the volume of breasts after pregnancy and nursing
- Gain breast symmetry if there is a difference in breast size
- Reconstruct breasts after a mastectomy or injury
After the procedure, our plastic surgeon will place bandages to aid the healing process and to minimize the movement of the breasts. Once the bandages are taken off, you will need to wear a surgical bra for several weeks. Follow all instructions we give you to make your recovery as comfortable as possible.
We encourage you to contact Simmons Plastic Surgery for more information about breast implants in Lexington, South Carolina, and to schedule a consultation.
