Breast Augmentation in Fairfax Va
Breast augmentation and breast enlargement procedures are one of the most common cosmetic surgery and plastic surgeon procedures performed in America today because women like having a choice of minimal incision procedures. The most common procedures are the Transaxillary Augmentation Procedure, which involves a small incision under the armpit, the Periariolar Incision and the Inframammary Incision. Breast implants are placed under the muscle, which means a lower rate of complications, more natural appearance, and easier interpretations of mammograms.
Breast enlargement and breast augmentation is most appealing to three types of women: 1) self conscious women with smaller breasts, 2) women who have experienced a decrease or loss in breast volume after having children, and 3) women with sagging breasts as a result of age or child-bearing. Breast enlargement provides a women with a boosted sense of self-esteem and self-image.
Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia, with numbing medicine placed into the breast to make the postoperative recovery period more bearable. Most women are back to work in a week, and bruising and swelling will take 2-4 weeks to improve.
Breast Lift - Mastopexy
With age, a woman's breasts gradually decrease in shape, size and firmness as a result of gravity, pregnancy, breast feeding and weight changes. The breasts will sag and feel old. A breast lift can help reshape, rejuvenate, and lift the breasts to their normal location of youth. Performed as an outpatient procedure at an outpatient surgery center, patients with a minor amount of sag and size decrease may only need an implant augmentation procedure. The augmentation procedure restores the fullness of youth, but minimizes the scars involved with typical breast lift procedures.
