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 than that. 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 to also 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 choose to 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 most commonly uses general anesthesia for this procedure, meaning you’re asleep during it. This helps patients feel more comfortable and less nervous, leading up to their breast augmentation.

Dr. Peck performs this procedure on an outpatient basis, so you can head home 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. If your breasts are severely drooping, Dr. Peck can also pair this procedure with a breast lift. 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 give your breasts support as they heal. Any scarring you see will fade over time, although it may not disappear entirely. 

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