Breast Augmentation

What is breast augmentation?

Many people think a breast augmentation simply increases the size of your breasts. But when you choose an expert plastic surgeon like Dr. Peck, you get much more. He ensures your breast augmentation leaves you with a proportional, symmetrical frame and two evenly sized and shaped breasts. Many women choose this procedure not just to increase their breast volume but also to increase their all-around self-confidence. 

Dr. Peck offers multiple types of breast augmentations so you can find the one that’s right for you. Some patients use silicone or saline implants to increase their breast volume, while others opt for fat transfer breast augmentation. In the latter, Dr. Peck takes excess fat from somewhere else on your body and moves it to your breasts. 

What should I expect during breast augmentation?

Dr. Peck performs your breast augmentation through a single incision on each side of your chest. He commonly uses general anesthesia for this procedure, meaning you’re asleep. This helps patients feel more comfortable and less nervous. Dr. Peck performs this procedure on an outpatient basis, usually in his private surgical center, so you can head home on the day of your breast augmentation and relax comfortably there. 

While breast augmentation is designed to change the shape and size of your breasts, it doesn’t adjust their position on your chest. Dr. Peck can also pair this procedure with a breast lift if your breasts are severely drooping. This way, you get the ideal results from your surgery. 

What happens after a breast augmentation?

You leave your breast augmentation procedure with a fuller, more even chest. 

Swelling and bruising are normal for a few weeks after the procedure. Wearing a compression bandage can help minimize swelling and support your breasts as they heal. Any scarring you see will fade over time, although it may not disappear entirely. 

Dr. Peck walks you through the healing process, helping you manage discomfort and get back to your daily routine as quickly as possible.
