Woman with Breast EnhancementAre your breasts smaller than you would like? Breast augmentation may be an excellent option for you. The surgery is among the treatments offered by Dr. Douglas Hegyi of Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Lapeer and Rochester, MI.

Is breast augmentation right for me?

Concerns about the appearance of your breasts can affect your self-esteem and may even make you feel less confident in social settings. Breast augmentation, the most popular type of cosmetic surgery according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, may offer the perfect solution. The surgery increases the size of your breasts and improves breast volume using implants or a fat transfer procedure.

Breast augmentation is a good choice if:

  • You feel that your breasts are too small.
  • One of your breasts is large than the other.
  • You've lost volume in your breasts due to pregnancy, weight loss or aging.
  • You've had a mastectomy.
  • You want your breasts to look rounder.

If you plan to undergo breast augmentation, you must be in good health and have realistic expectations regarding the results of the surgery. If you are a young woman, you must also wait until your breasts have developed completely before you have the surgery.

What happens during breast augmentation?

After you receive anesthesia, your doctor will make an incision under your breast, in your armpit or along the darker areola in the center of the breast. If you will be receiving silicone or saline implants, your doctor will either place the implants behind your breast tissue or over or under the pectoral muscle in your chest.

If you choose a fat transfer breast augmentation, your doctor will use liposuction to suction fat from a few areas of your body, such as the abdomen, hips, flank, thighs or back. Once the fat is removed, it will be thoroughly cleaned before being injected into your breasts. Fat transfer breast augmentation is a good option if you want to increase the size of your breasts slightly or want to correct small differences in the size of your breasts.

Breast augmentation can improve your silhouette and boost your self-esteem! Schedule an appointment with Dr. Douglas Hegyi of Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center by calling (810) 664-7640 for the Lapeer, MI, office or (248) 844-3690 for the Rochester, MI, office.

Breast augmentation is the most common cosmetic surgical procedure performed in the United States according to the American Society breast augmentationof Plastic Surgeons. It’s the process of increasing or decreasing the size of the breasts, or lifting them for a more favorable appearance. This cosmetic surgery is now available at Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Rochester and Lapeer, MI. 

Reasons to Consider Breast Augmentation
Your breast size is one part of your body that you can’t normally change with exercise or diet -- it's mostly determined by heredity. If you’re not satisfied with the size of your breasts, implants can be surgically added to them to enhance your physique. Some women choose this procedure after they have lost a lot of weight. Breast augmentation also helps patients who have asymmetrical breasts (one breast is slightly larger than the other). In some cases, your doctor can also do a breast lift in addition to augmentation to improve the appearance of sagging breasts. 

The Breast Augmentation Consultation
Before this procedure, you must come in for a detailed cosmetic consultation with your Rochester and Lapeer, MI, plastic surgeon. There you will discuss your goals, including the cup size you want and the type of implant. You may be a candidate for a fat transfer augmentation, which injects fat from another area of your body into the breasts. Your surgeon will also review your medical history and get familiar with any allergies or conditions you may have. If cleared for the surgery, you'll be scheduled for another appointment and given preparatory instructions.

What to Expect from the Procedure
You must be in good general health to have breast augmentation surgery. The average procedure is finished in a couple of hours. Your Rochester and Lapeer, MI, surgeon will have you under general or intravenous anesthesia the entire time, so you must have a companion with you. An incision is made in an inconspicuous location where the implant or fat tissue will be inserted. After suturing and some recovery time, you can go home the same day. You should expect to take at least a week off from work after a breast augmentation surgery to ensure proper healing.

Consult a Cosmetic Surgeon
To get a full view of what breast augmentation involves, talk to a plastic surgeon and ask the questions you still have on your mind.

While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, lax and aging skin are probably not what people were talking about. Symmetrical, youthful and fillerssmooth skin are promoted every day. So, where does that leave you? Easy. At Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center, located in Lapeer and Rochester, MI, doctors provide patients with dermal fillers to regain and rejuvenate that youthful look.

What are injectable dermal fillers?

For several years collagen was the first and only FDA approved filler consisting of highly purified bovine, a dermal tissue extracted from cows.

A new filler was later developed that had only one percent rejection rate and contained human collagen. There was simultaneously a popular silicone filler removed from the market when silicone was banned from being used in breast implants.

Today, hyaluronic acid-based fillers, a naturally occurring substance that contributes to cell proliferation, are popular. Hyaluronic acid based fillers are made from bacterial proteins and don't require skin testing because they're already found in the body. The transparent gel is injected into facial tissue to eliminate wrinkles and smoothen folds.

What are other dermal fillers used in the USA?

Restylane received FDA approval in 2003, as well as other cosmetic fillers such as Perlane, Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra, Ultra Plus and Juvederm Voluma

You'll find calcium-based fillers instead of hyaluronic acid in markets these days, just ask your Lapeer and Rochester doctor. These new dermal fillers include Radiance/Radiesse, which is FDA approved and said to last up to 18 months.

Technological advancements have proven effective in creating safer products to rejuvenate your skin. If you have any questions about cosmetic fillers, don't hesitate to call your doctor at Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Lapeer and Rochester, MI.

If you are interested in achieving a more youthful appearance, then Botox might be right for you. Botox is a nonsurgical cosmetic treatment botoxfor eliminating fine lines and wrinkles. Following treatment, the skin is smoother and you look younger. At Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center, Dr. Douglas Hegyi is your doctor for Botox in Rochester and Lapeer, MI.

Botox Injections

Botox is a cosmetic drug that can help you look younger. It is injected directly into the muscles of the face, neck, or chest to smooth the skin and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox accomplishes these things by relaxing the muscles. When the muscles relax, the surrounding skin smooths out, which softens the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

In addition to helping you look younger, another exciting benefit of Botox is that results are immediate. At the end of your appointment, you’ll instantly notice smoother skin with fewer lines and wrinkles. Further, the positive effects of Botox can continue improving for up to two weeks following treatment so you’ll look more youthful than ever. Your Rochester and Lapeer doctor for Botox can help you decide if Botox treatment is right for you.

Benefits of Botox

Beyond simply helping you look younger, Botox treatments offer several additional benefits. For instance, by smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, Botox erases the constant look of fatigue, worry, or anger that can develop with age.

  • Little to no recover time
  • Immediate results
  • A more youthful appearance
  • Eliminate fine lines and wrinkles
  • Smoother skin on the forehead, face, and neck

How Botox can erase the signs of agingbotox

When you look at your face in the mirror, do you like what you see? Do you still look as young as you used to, or do you notice fine lines and wrinkles, the first signs of aging? If you are starting to get fine lines and wrinkles, the good news is, you can fight back! The answer is Botox! Dr. Douglas Hegyi at Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center wants to share the facts about Botox. He has two convenient office locations in Lapeer and Rochester, MI to serve your needs.

Fine lines and wrinkles are the result of changes in your skin due to aging. As you get older, your skin becomes drier and its elasticity decreases. Your skin’s ability to “snap back” after frowning, laughing or showing other emotions is decreased. The result is fine lines and wrinkles beginning to show up around your eyes, mouth, nose and forehead.

Botox has a long history of safety and effectiveness in combating lines and wrinkles. Botox comes from a material produced by a bacterium known as Clostridium botulinum. It smoothes out the skin and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles by temporarily “freezing” the nerves and muscles near the treatment site. After Botox treatment, your skin will be noticeably smoother and more youthful looking.

Botox treatment can reduce the appearance of:

  • Crow’s feet; the lines at the corners of your eyes
  • Glabella; the lines between your eyebrows
  • Furrows; the lines in your forehead
  • Lines around your mouth and nose caused by smiling and laughing

Botox is the minimally invasive way to look younger! For more detailed information about Botox, please visit the Botox page on the website at
