A breast augmentation (also known as augmentation mammoplasty) is a surgical breast surgery that uses implants to add to your breast volume and create fuller, rounder breasts, correct sagging breasts, and create more symmetrical-looking breasts. If you are in the Fair Oaks, CA area and are interested in having a breast augmentation, you can trust board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sweat to listen to your goals and concerns and give you the best results possible.

Breast Augmentation Candidates

Individuals in the Fair Oaks area who are unhappy with the size, shape, or symmetry of their breasts are good candidates for breast augmentation surgery. A loss of volume and sagging breasts due to pregnancy and breastfeeding, a dramatic weight loss, or age are common reasons for a breast implant procedure. Other individuals might have naturally small or asymmetrical breasts and want cosmetic surgery. These are all adequate reasons to consider a breast augmentation in Fair Oaks. To be a good candidate, it is important for your breasts to be done developing, to be healthy with no medical conditions, and to maintain realistic expectations.

Breast Augmentation Procedure

Your breast augmentation procedure in Fair Oaks will require sedation or general anesthesia for your comfort during surgery. There are a few options for where incisions can be made, including around the areolar edge, under the breast fold, or in the armpit. The placement of your incisions will be determined by you and Dr. Sweat during your consultation. You will also discuss the type of breast implants (saline or silicone implants) that will be used. Silicone breast implants typically feel more like natural breast tissue, but saline implants can be a better option for some patients. These silicone and saline breast implants will be placed through the incision and into the breast pocket. The incision will then be closed with sutures or surgical tape.

Breast Augmentation Recovery and Results

After a breast augmentation in Fair Oaks, Dr. Sweat will provide you with all the necessary post-op instructions to ensure a successful recovery. You will likely be required to wear a support bra to support your new breasts and minimize swelling. Soreness, swelling, and discomfort are common during the first few weeks after surgery and you will want to limit activity during this time.

After your recovery, you should be able to experience the final results of your breast augmentation procedure. You will notice fuller, rounder, more symmetrical breasts and might notice an increase in self-confidence too.
