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.
