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.
