Breast implants have come a long way since they were first designed about 40 years ago, and breast augmentation is now one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the United States. In 2013 alone, around 300,000 women opted for breast augmentation surgery to attain a fuller bust and a more shapely figure. With recent advancements in materials, technology, and technique, Dr. Kevin Cook is able to achieve more natural-looking beautiful results than ever before. Our patients at Midland Surgical Associates choose breast augmentation for a wide variety of reasons. In addition to the cosmetic benefits, most of these women also experience a boost of confidence in their personal and professional lives.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Women have a number of goals when choosing breast augmentation, including:
- Increasing volume for a fuller shape
- Restoring volume after pregnancy for a more youthful look
- Improving symmetry for a more harmonious appearance
- Feel more comfortable in a range of clothing types
- Improving overall self-esteem
Dr. Cook can design a custom-tailored breast augmentation procedure to specifically address your unique concerns and meet your expectations. If you would like to discuss your individual aesthetic goals with Dr. Cook, please schedule a consultation today.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Cook will talk with you about your goals and determine your candidacy for breast augmentation. Dr. Cook uses these one-on-one consultations as a time to carefully listen to and understand your individual concerns and desires. He will walk you through the important decisions to be made about your procedure, including the breast implant type and size, potential surgical techniques that can be utilized, ideal incision locations, and other issues. Dr. Cook can also help you decide if a breast lift is right for you. He aims to fully educate you about these choices, enabling you to make well-informed decisions about your body and your health.
Breast Augmentation Procedure
Breast augmentation surgery usually lasts approximately one hour, depending on the breast implant type and surgical technique you have chosen. The procedure can be performed as an outpatient. Incisions can be made along the crease of the breast, around the areola, or through the armpit. Dr. Cook will help you choose an incision type that is most appropriate for your needs. He is very experienced with breast surgery procedures and will work diligently to ensure any residual scarring is as light as possible.
Recovery And Results
After breast augmentation surgery, many of our patients experience some soreness and swelling. Any post-operative discomfort can be alleviated with medication. The techniques employed by Dr. Cook during your procedure are intended to both abbreviate your recovery time as well as minimize the appearance of any scars. Most of our patients return to their daily activities within five to seven days after the procedure.
Breast augmentation surgery has a very high patient satisfaction rate and a low complication rate. Incisions tend to heal quickly and scars can be treated with topical medication to significantly reduce their appearance.
