Small, disproportionate breasts can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance and affect the symmetry of your figure.
At Aesthetic Center Greenville, we perform breast augmentation to increase the size of your bust and create a curvy, feminine figure.
So why should you consider breast augmentation?
How do implants work?
Before Your Breast Augmentation Procedure
Definitely one of the most popular procedures in our practice and nationwide, breast implant surgery is one of our specialties. Our breast augmentation patients report very high levels of satisfaction with their results. We serve individuals from throughout the Carolinas, including Spartanburg, Greenville, and Asheville with breast augmentation using implants selected to ensure the most natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing results possible. Learn more about breast augmentation, performed by our gifted surgeon, Dr. Sutton Graham, at the Aesthetic Center.
During your initial visit to our office in Greenville to discuss breast augmentation with Dr. Graham, you will have the opportunity to choose a bra size and try it on with various sizers. We will give you guidance, but you will decide which size gives you the look you desire. You may try on a fitted knit shirt of ours, or you are welcome to bring articles of clothing that you wish to see yourself in. We also use advanced 3-D imaging to help patients envision their expected results. Also at this time, the implant type, placement, and incision location will be decided upon.
We offer several types of implants, including the innovative IDEAL IMPLANT®. You will see numerous before and after photos of our patient’s results. Dr. Graham typically recommends saline-filled implants, generally placed sub-pectoral (under the muscle). Patients most often choose the inframammary incision location (under the breast), however we also offer incisions along the areolar margin (around the nipple area). Either smooth or textured-surface implants are used. Risks will be discussed and given to you in written form prior to surgery. For more information on breast implants and breast augmentation, we invite you to contact the Aesthetic Center today.
After Receiving Breast Implants
Not long after your breast augmentation procedure, which is performed in about one hour under general anesthesia, you’ll be able to return home to begin the short recovery process. Special techniques are used during surgery to minimize postoperative discomfort and to speed your recovery. Medications will help manage any post-operative pain and muscle spasms you may experience. You should have full range of motion in your arms and shoulders right away, and you will be able to walk around the first day after surgery. We’ll give you a soft bra to wear until it is time for you to go shopping. As you recover, you will be able to taper off prescription pain medications and use Tylenol. You can drive a car within days of your breast augmentation procedure and return to light work in about one week. Several follow-up office visits are typical, and we’ll be happy to see you extra times if you have questions. Breast implants may need to be replaced over time. Results are long lasting, but breasts may change with age and gravity.
Finally, beauty without compromise.
Now available in our office, the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured
Breast Implant combines natural feel with the safety of only saline inside for peace of mind. The IDEAL IMPLANT has undergone 10 years of development and refinement, including contributions of clinical expertise from many plastic surgeons. The result is the FDA-approved IDEAL IMPLANT, with the natural feel that women want, but without any silicone gel.
The IDEAL IMPLANT has a series of implant shells nested together and two separate chambers that hold the saline. This simple, yet innovative, internal structure is designed to control movement of the saline and support the implant edges to reduce folding and wrinkling. In addition, the edges have been lowered to better fit the natural curve of the chest wall. This unique design allows women to have the best of both worlds with their implant- natural look and feel, but the ability to just look in a mirror and know the implant is intact.
