Breast Augmentation Las Vegas
Breast enlargement is a surgical procedure to enhance natural breast size and shape through use of a saline filled or silicone-gel filled implant. Most often, it is sought by women who, for personal reasons, feel that their breasts are too small. It can also improve the slight drooping that frequently comes as a result of pregnancy, fluctuations in weight, gravity and natural aging. For some women, breast enlargement is requested to correct a noticeable difference in size between the two breasts.
The procedure can be performed at any time once the breasts have stopped developing. To be sure, the most satisfied breast enlargement patients are those who want the operation for themselves, as a means of achieving a realistic degree of improvement—not perfection—in body contour. All of which can lead to an increased sense of femininity and greater self-confidence. Your consultation will be aided by computer generated visualization. We are the only cosmetic plastic surgery clinic in Nevada to offer this amazing technology that allows you to see how you will look with the procedures that you are interested in.
Breast enlargement takes about 1 hour and is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. A small incision is made along the crease of each breast, through which a pocket is created behind the breast tissue and muscle and the implant is placed. This method of insertion offers numerous advantages, which are discussed thoroughly during consultation. The particular size and style of implant used depends on the diameter of the chest, body height and weight, and personal preference.
A surgical bra must be worn for 2 weeks to give support and minimize bruising and swelling. During this time the chest may feel heavy and achy; and you may experience oversensitivity, undersensitivity, burning or numbness in one or both nipples. This is typically controlled with cold compresses and pain medication.
Light activity may be resumed in a week or less of surgery; however, strenuous activity involving heavy bending or lifting should be avoided for at least three to six weeks. Driving can usually be resumed in about a week.
