It’s very common for women to be unhappy with the size or appearance of their breasts. This can cause many women to feel self-conscious, unattractive, and even embarrassed. If you feel that you’d be happier about your appearance with larger or more symmetrical breasts, breast augmentation in Stamford may be the answer.

What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a common surgical procedure that increases the size of your breasts. In addition to adding volume to smaller breasts, breast augmentation can improve the symmetry and shapeliness of the breasts.

How Does Breast Augmentation Work?

Breast augmentation is done using either breast implants or fat transfer. For breast implants, the implants are most commonly made from either sterile saline or silicone gel. They’re placed under the breast tissue or chest muscles to create the appearance of naturally larger breasts.

Fat transfer breast augmentation involves taking fat from a different area of the body and injecting it into the breasts. Typically, the fat tissue is taken from the belly, flanks, back, or thighs. Fat transfer breast augmentation is usually for women seeking a small increase in breast size.

What Should I Expect During the Surgery?

When you decide to get a breast augmentation, the first step will be a consultation with Dr. Reinblatt. During the consultation, the doctor will ask you questions about your goals and expectations for the procedure as well as your medical history.

If you’re getting breast implants, the procedure will start with you being sedated or anesthetized. After that, the doctor will make incisions either along the areolar edges, along the folds under the breasts, or in the armpits. Next, the breast implants will be carefully inserted either under your pectoral muscles or behind your breast tissue. Finally, the doctor will close the incisions with sutures to complete the surgery.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

After breast augmentation in Stamford, you can typically leave the hospital about an hour after waking. Your stitches will be removed after about a week, and you will need to avoid heavy lifting and significant physical activity for approximately four to six weeks.

Am I a Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Women who would like to increase the size or improve the symmetry of their breasts may be ideal candidates for breast augmentation. To be a candidate for breast augmentation, you should meet the following requirements:

  • Your breasts are fully developed
  • You have realistic expectations
  • You are physically healthy
  • You are not currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You are unsatisfied with the size or symmetry of your breasts

What Are the Risks of Breast Augmentation?

There are certain side effects you may experience after having a breast augmentation. These include:

  • Soreness
  • Increased sensitivity around the nipples
  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Bleeding

The surgery also brings the risk of certain complications:

  • Infection
  • Hematoma
  • Wound healing issues
  • Scar tissues forming
  • Fluid around the implants

How Long Will It Take To See Results After Breast Augmentation?

You will see the results of your Stamford breast augmentation immediately after the surgery is completed. You’ll leave the hospital that day with breasts the shape and size that you desire. Although breast implants are not designed to last for a lifetime, they typically last for at least 10 to 20 years before another procedure is necessary.
