Breast Augmentation from UMD’s Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Wellness

Monday, April 29th, 2013

There are many different kinds of procedures for changing the appearance, shape and size of your breasts. There are breast enlargements (also known as augmentations), breast reductions, breast reconstructions, breast lifts (mastopexy) and gynecomastia. All of these procedures modify the breasts in different ways. The procedure that is right for you will depend on what result you’re looking for.

Most women seeking cosmetic augmentation want naturally looking but fuller breasts. At the University of Maryland’s Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Wellness, we will listen to you to determine your goals, as not every patient wants the same postoperative size. We will have you try on various sizes of implants and we will choose a size together. We will also tell you about saline and silicone implants, putting the implant above or below the muscle, and the various incisions that are possible for you. Round and contoured implants will also be discussed so that you can be fully aware of your choices and participate in all decision making.

 

 

We will also point out any features of your breasts, such as asymmetries or nipple position, that you may want to consider in your decision making process. We are committed to well informed patients and we will be happy to answer all your questions. Augmenation evaluations often take a full hour, so schedule plenty of time. When you have a breast augmentation done, an implant is placed under the breast tissue or under the chest muscle beneath the breast. An implant is a soft silicone shell filled with silicone gel or a saline (saltwater) solution. An incision is made either at the bottom crease of the breast, the armpit or along the lower edge of the areola. The implants are put in through such incisions and after careful adjustment, it is closed up with stitches.

 

The University of Maryland’s Center for Cosmetic Surgery is a knowledgeable, experienced and highly skilled team of surgeons. We will work with you to achieve your aesthetic goals, carefully explaining the process and selecting the procedures that are best for you. There are many things to consider when deciding whether cosmetic procedures are right for you, such as invasiveness of the treatment, length of recovery, side effects, and costs. We will spend time going over the surgery, the recovery and the expected outcome.

 

As a part of the University of Maryland’s network, we have access to cutting edge technology and the latest advancements in the field of cosmetic surgery. We are committed to ensuring that our patients get the best possible care and outstanding results.
