In Fort Wayne, Indiana, Breast enlargement is one of the most popular plastic surgeries. It can change your shape to be more proportional, help clothes fit better and boost your self-esteem.
If you’ve lost a great deal of weight, a breast enlargement can restore roundness and fullness in your breasts. If your breasts are smaller and less firm after breastfeeding, a breast enlargement can help you regain your original shape. A breast enlargement also can help if one of your breasts is a different size than the other.
Breast enlargement, also known as breast augmentation, can increase the fullness of your breasts; improve the balance of your figure; and enhance your self-image and self-confidence.
The first step is a consultation with Dr. Lee. At the office, located conveniently near the Fort Wayne area, you will meet Dr. Lee. He will ask about the motivation behind your decision and your desired breast size. He will examine your breasts and take photos for your records. Dr. Lee notes the size and shape of your breasts, the quality of your skin and the placement of your nipples and areolas in determining how best to approach your surgery. If your breasts are sagging, he may recommend a breast lift in conjunction with augmentation. Dr. Lee cares and treats many patients from the Huntington, Roanoake, and Warsaw areas.
Be prepared to discuss your medical history, including any medical conditions, drug allergies, previous surgeries or medical treatments, and current medications. Tell Dr. Lee if you have a family history of breast cancer and about the results of any mammograms. Breast implants make it more difficult to take and read mammograms. This may be a special consideration if you are at higher risk for breast cancer because of your family history or other reasons. Dr. Lee will consider this factor when deciding whether to place the implant underneath the pectoral muscle (see below), where it may interfere less with a mammogram.
Tell Dr. Lee if you are planning to lose a substantial amount of weight or to become pregnant in the near future. Both may affect the long-term results of your breast enlargement.
Saline breast implants are considered safe for breast augmentation. Research on the safety and effectiveness is ongoing.
The FDA requires women to be at least 18 years old to get breast augmentation with saline implants.
For women who have sagging, deflated breasts a breast lift can be a great option. To enhance the results and create shapelier breasts, this can be combined with a breast augmentation.
