Breast Augmentation in Fredericksburg, VA

What is Breast Augmentation?

Cosmetic breast surgery is a procedure that enlarges the breasts to create a fuller appearance. It is known as one of the most common cosmetic surgeries, granting women who are unhappy with their breasts numerous opportunities for improvement. With the help of implants or a fat transfer, this procedure improves breast shape, size, and symmetry and results in a desirable and youthful outcome. Fredericksburg, VA plastic surgeons Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki are experienced in implementing this treatment and perform many breast augmentations yearly. During your consultation at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg, your surgeon will listen to your aesthetic desires and concerns and inform you of the options available while creating a treatment plan to attain your personal goals.

How is a Breast Augmentation Performed?

Incision placement, implant location, as well as the type and size of the implants, are decisions that are made during your consultation and preoperative appointments. During the procedure, the chosen incision is created, and then the preferred implant will be slipped into its position. Two techniques may be used for implant placement. These include either under the pectoral muscle or submammary/subglandular placement (over the pec muscle). Where to insert the implant is based on numerous factors, including the implant's overall type and size. Regardless of the incision, scarring is generally minimal. Implant placement is based on your implant size, activity level, and body type. In some cases, a breast lift may be necessary to achieve the best results.

How much does breast augmentation cost?

Your total cost for breast augmentation will vary depending on your choices and if you are getting any other surgeries. Once your treatment plan is made, Dr. Heppe can discuss estimated costs and financing options. Focusing on quality over low costs is important to ensure your results match your goals and last a long time.

Do I need a breast lift or augmentation?

Your plan might include breast augmentation, a breast lift, or both. Breast lift surgery removes excess skin and raises the position of the breasts, while implants address the shape and size of the breasts. During your consultation with Dr. Heppe, He will listen to your concerns and goals before explaining your treatment options. An augmentation and lift are often included in a mommy makeover to revitalize the breasts after breastfeeding and pregnancy.

Can I breastfeed with implants?

If you want to breastfeed after breast augmentation, talk to Dr. Heppe during your consultation. It is usually possible to breastfeed after augmentation surgery with the proper placement and technique. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can alter your results, so it is better to wait until after you are done having children to have breast surgery.

Can I have my implants removed?

You might decide at some point that you want to remove or replace your implants. Should this happen, Dr. Heppe offers breast revision surgery. During the revision surgery, your current implants will be either replaced with new implants or removed. If you want to have your implants removed, you might need to have excess skin removed because larger implants may stretch your skin. For any questions or concerns after your augmentation surgery, schedule a consultation at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg to discuss your options.

Do implants cause breast cancer?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is still investigating a possible link between implants and ALCL (anaplastic large cell lymphoma).
